whnay.'s good taste thread - Page 505

post #7561 of 13589
while i undertand the concept of 2 squares being too much, when i think about it, its not really so OTT imo. if you concede that a PS in an overcoat is acceptable, then why not have both?

the idea of the PS is to add to the fit and the combination. when you are outside, wearing the coat, people only see that. when you go inside, and take off the coat, people see that one. why should one be lacking a PS from their outside fit just because they have one for the inside fit, and visa versa?

i think it might only be viewed as contrived because we are seeing both at the same time, as he is showing us the full fit. had you seen him in person, outside, with a PS in the overcoat, i doubt anyone would think anything of it. and then if you saw him later inside with a PS in the SC would you say, "hey! take that out! i already saw you with a PS in the overcoat"? i doubt that at all.

i think its important to view the fit as a fit irl, that is what it is after all. its not just a picture on the internet.

Three possibilities occur to me.
  1. You're on "Ignore"by everyone (except for me which still doesn't do you a damned bit of good ITT).
  2. Those who might pass useful judgement are withholding it due to the variety of colors available from pic to pic.
  3. I forgot my third point.
Maybe you should try a knit, club tie with a pointy end.

usually, if a fit is not commented on, it means that there was nothing wrong with it, but nothing notable either. it is a bummer when it happens, but it beats being told your fit is a suxxorfest.

other option, and sheepy i mean no hate you know i love you, is that some of sheeps fits have pushed the envelope, and he is not a n00b/moron, so some of the judges here may just feel like they dont want to bother, but i dont like to make assumptions about how people feel, so i take full accountability if im way off base.

What IS this thread??? I've read every single post and it has, at times, been the best thread I've ever read on here with really good discussion and REASONS behind them. I REALLY think we need a title change to make it more specific. I'm trying to build a wardrobe on a VERY limited budget; therefore, I'm going overboard on research and second guessing to make sure each piece in this early stage will be a real tasteful staple. Sorry if I sound a little selfish, but

We all get it, you have a lot of clothes and you put together elaborate combinations. You are set in your ways and continue to post pictures that you probably expect others to shake their heads at, yet you post anyway. PLEASE, for the respect of those trying to learn a thing or two, try discussing instead of posting a pic. Let's change the thread title and moderate so us young bucks (and those that are willing to look inward and question their own wardrobe) can benefit from what this thread was originally intended for:

"I urge chavs, fops, bottom feeders and n00bs to think carefully before you post in this thread. If you are wondering whether something is in good taste, it probably isn't. I encourage nay, foo, matt, dopey, gdl, vox (he is missed), concordia, t4, parker, will, baron, edmorel and some others whose names aren't occuring to me at the moment to comment with directness but without rancor."

Aww hell, tl;dr who cares?

My last order of bespoke shirts was all light blue in very slightly varying shades and it's 100% because of the pithy observation made by foo.gif that blue shirts rule. Viktor's last post is a nice bit of proof.

General thoughts:

Picture too small, requiring click-through and generating fewer comments.
Not enough contrast between jacket and trousers (at least in pic). It could work with lighter top or bottom half.
Contrast edges on the linen can be in good taste. I've gone off them in general, but this application seems okay to me.
Shoes are too light for this fit.

I don't believe #1. But if it is as you say, part of me would be proud, even through the pain.

I am pushing the envelope from time to time. I really don't see that I am ever really out of bounds, and I generally try to put what I perceive to be my better fits here, as opposed to WAYWRN. I confess to thinking the premise of this thread is pretty hilarious, but when I post here I am generally trying to play ball.

i was not accusing you of otherwise my good man, it was just a hypothesis, and like i said, it could easily have been dead wrong.

For the uninitiated, If you stick your hand out like that in Moscow, private cars will stop and, if the price is right, offer you a lift.

Does anyone else occasionally engage in stare downs with acridsheep's avatar?

I guess you would rather call them бомбила or even хачмобил at times... biggrin.gif
