I'm almost ashamed to say it, but I bought a cream pocket square because of this thread, and it's getting a lot of use. It really is versatile. That + white linen seems to cover quite a bit.

Those definitions mention "rib-hugging shirts", "Males typically wear tight jeans", "affecting the style of one who attends dance clubs nightly".

Is that how you see this?:

I think it's pretty easy to identify the affected from the unaffected, and when something looks good and when it doesn't. Wearing a raincoat when it's not raining, nor likely to, for example, doesn't.

Geez there is nothing wrong with scarves worn when they are used what there made for; that's keeping you warm when it's cold. I often wear a cashmere scarf and gloves under a suit/sportcoat like this in winter despite the -5 Celsius average lows here in winter. Reason for that is only need to go 10 metres from my house to car, then another 50 metres from car to office and it's just enough to keep me warm until the heater warms up.

That said, the one above isn't working with that outfit, it's too casual, too country. It's a very CBD fit, and would benefit from a scarf that compliments that, like a plain grey cashmere or something with a subtle herringbone weave. Also you should tighten the knot on your tie, it looks a bit loose and floppy and the dimple would be a lot better.

foo.gif suggested a darker hank with this outfit, and this one is; but I think colours may be too matchy with the tie now. Thoughts?

EDIT: Re-stuffed the square... old version in spoiler above.

Wow jeezuz; Rdiaz! The last time I saw a fit of yours was months ago (haven't been on much) and that was you wearing a pair of ill fitting chinos which had no drape. Might I say you must have found a mighty fine tailor l that time and it looks like you've lost 10kg's or so! Great work!
Though yes I do find the ps to match too close to the tie....smile.gif

Thanks, I wish I had lost 10 kg though! smile.gif

 

The difference you see is probably because I've been putting a lot of effort on getting trouser fit right. The measurements in today's pair are fine except for the knees, which need a larger circumference - I had a pair of RTW pants altered recently with the tweaked knee measurement and the result is a beautiful drape without much extra material at the leg opening, pretty much perfect.

 

That said, I think chinos don't drape as well as dress trousers on anybody - not just because people usually get them OTR, but also because they're cotton....

too matchy RDiaz IMHO, but if u use this square as above (same square placed differently?) u can pick up that feint burgundy-red in the tie. Great look.

post #6809 of 12675

Yep, it's the same square. Perhaps I can move it so more tiger yellow is visible and there are some hints of burgundy and blue, I'll try smile.gif
