Took a pic, but didn't have the balls to post it in the regular WAYWRN laugh.gif






Don't hate me. lookaround.gif

Technically one pattern too many, but it is for an evening event and I think you pull it off.

This was the firts outfit that I uploaded, of course I was criticized for the jacket being to short. Then again, when I bought my first suits... I didn't know anything about it.

The only only black shirt that works at all would be a black background Aloha shirt - at a Hawaiian funeral.

I guess a crosspost is in order, as this smoking jacket is the definition of being a peacock.

Paul Smith shirt MTM including Tahatian mother of pearl buttons and hacking jacket* by Ralph Lauren. Brown corduroy pants (not shown) .

 

As above with Ralph Lauren Purple Label silk knit (navy blue) and mother of pearl tie pin. Tie knot is Pratt-Shellby.

 

 

* This is a 3-button hacking jacket, technically the top button should be undone, although the bottom button is undone.

Hacking jacket, please just stop. This is really dreadful. If you go back to the earlier posts in this thread you will see the discussion about the difference between peacocking and plain bad taste. I'm sorry to say that I haven't seen any evidence that you have any taste - it really doesn't matter for example, if your shirt buttons are Tahitian mother-of-pearl (or sewn on by virgins by moonlight or whatever), if the shirt just doesn't go with the jacket at all, or the name of your tie knot if the result looks poor and you choice of tie also doesn't really work with anything else you are wearing. You seem to alternate between throwing random things together and being so matchy-matchy it look like a US high-school prom outfit bought as a job lot (like your black shirt look above). And the celebrity name-checking doesn't make it any better. By all means enjoy your clothes, but if you are going to post here as if other people should be impressed by what you are doing, you might try to hang around, look and listen a bit more, and learn something about the basics of style first.

If there was any consistency to hacking jacket's clothing, I would believe he is trolling here with the constant comments and black dress shirts. Sadly though, I think he genuinely feels the butterfly outfit was a strong look. Hacking: you don't want to hear this, but maybe lurk more before going full butterfly?

I'd like to see that shirt with a Vintage Richard James Professor X striped tie and a boater jacket. Really, I would.

British fashion has old roots: Butterfly (DuChamp) designs are based on 1700-1800s dandyism (as are Alexander McQueens) and historical criticism makes SF look like compliments. Thus weekend wear is fair game as were the dandies.

 

The classic Paul Smith shirt and the classic hacking jacket are icons of Britain. Whether they belong together is a different question.

 

Offend the iconic Paul Smith shirt at your peril. My bespoke classic PS shirt (not shown here) I will defend like 'Blue Suede Shoes'.

So we are not objecting to the cloths, or else show me your money, your tailors and shirtmakers ( if you have any).

If you don't like the shirt ... It's an archetype of Paul Smiths genius, the design that built his empire. The shirt being its foundation and inspired by the work of Matisse.
If you don't like the hacking jacket ... Is a traditional British design dating back to 1800s retrieved by the genius of Ralph Lauren.
If you don't like the combination that is your opinion, is ancient and modern Britishness brought together,

, ,.... but under circumstances lose it. Is that perfectly clear Monkey?

This whole rant reminds me of that old adage about a fool and his money.
