that SC is delicious.

Some Hank Foo today. The picture shows the hank in the Foo bend, but it just isn't my thing, so it was reconfigured later.



Also, so that we can avoid the whole glen check SC v. suit debate, this is a suit.

Whatever foo.gif says, I like that, SB. Lapels could be a bit wider on the suit, but it's a good combo IMO.

Foo would want it pushed lower.

I'm sure he'll find other things to dislike, too. smile.gif

+1 on lapel width. But that hank puffed that way looks quite good.

Ah, sorry, must have missed this.

This is solid. My only complaint is that the pattern density of the square renders quite close to the tie. Still, that's a minor on its own that it's not worth a full deduction.

This is great. I don't know what you don't like about the square. Yes, I might have tucked it in a bit more, but the shape is beautiful.

This might be helpful to some, pattern matching principles.

I don't like the foo.gif method for puffing squares. Too precious. It's supposed to look like an afterthought. Stuff it in.

SB, I like the fit, and I love my foo.gif inspired cream square as well.

congrats SB, ill bet that was not what you were expecting. funny how things go that way sometimes. smile.gif

I feel like we need a half-foo emoticon.

Example:
 

 

The colors are way saturated on that photograph. Here is the original:

 

 

 

In my opinion, this outfit is too washed out, because all tones are pale, except for the square. A darker necktie would solve this problem, but I don't know how to coordinate the square after the alteration.

I would have to agree. Only thing I've seen that is more contrived is the Spoo whale.

^Foo, regarding Axelman's ensemble. Earlier in the thread you noted how someone was wearing a dark tie with an even darker, bolder pocket square which was a fail. You noted how that person should have gone with a square with a hue that was in between that of the dark tie and the lighter shirt to tie it all together.

Axelman's square is of a hue that seems to draw the eye from the rest of the outfit yet it does not qualify as a failure? The tie is relatively light, shirt is light, etc. Could you explain some of the theory behind this? I'm just curious to pick your brain to gain a better understanding.

Axelman, I'm not trying to pick on you. I think the outfit looked great!

For reference:

Oh, c'mon, man. I was pandering, and you know it! This week I've been trying to calibrate the foo.gif Matic Sartorial CombiRater™. I didn't expect much love for the previous posts, but I expected this one would escape a thrashing.

I like what I'm wearing today, and I'm sure I've worn a similar combo in the past. It doesn't surprise me that we both like it because I like the way foo.gif dresses. Even if I think his spectrum of good taste is too narrow, it would be disingenuous for me to say that it doesn't work for him and couldn't work for most men.

I'm hoping that PSG will jump in and rate some fits, too. He has an adventurous, yet coherent, sense of color and pattern, and I'd love to know what he thinks.

speaking of pattern density; for Herringbone and Houndstooth SC, what is a better pairing of shirting, Bengal/Dress stripes or better stick with semi-solids, like end on end? mini-graph shirt seems too dense for both SC patterns. Thank you
