The suits from CR and QOS were much, much better.

....agreed. Since seeing Skyfall, I've watched those two movies. The fit looks better in those.

But to you, and to the others who've said similar things, I must ask: how do you feel about humility? Is it possible to take this approach while still being humble? I ask because, as an artist, I feel like I'm very much my teacher's pupil. I may be doing things my way, but my approach is still influenced by both what they taught me, and by the work I admire.

Aw, come on, nobody's got just one. I think we're just picking one.

Holy fuck. They're movies, not fashion shoots.

While my style, such as it is, has developed independently, I inherited my love of clothing and footwear from my father.

Movies show clothes in the background which is their proper setting outside of a waywrn forum. They teach you how to wear your clothes well without letting them wear you. Now I'll never wear a trench coat, because I never fought in a trench, or a fedora, because it can be perceived as pretentious or dandified in my corner of the universe, but Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca is one of my style icons because he not only dresses well, he wears his clothes well.

I can say James Bond for those tailored suits and overcoats.

Do you really think this looks very dated and full-fitting? I beg to differ. Yes, you can see it's from the 60s, but this suit wouldn't look out of place nowadays. Check this link for more examples, which offers a nice analysis of the clothes in Dr. No: http://clothesonfilm.com/sean-connery-in-dr-no-the-template-for-007/17788/

GW/PG in his years of #gms was/is my all time role model.


I am still far, far away, but trying to look that great one day.

yeah - as someone else said, I guess he means the current POW.

 

Vox for showing what can be done with good taste and seemingly limitless resources (and a sense of the ridiculous)

 

Foo for his ability to explain why some things combine well and some things don't.  He can be abrasive but he knows his stuff.  There's a few others on this forum but these two are standouts IMO

My ties speak to me, and the rest I draw from security guards.

I don't know if "inspire" would be the right word for me, rather I would say that this guy have the clothing items I would like to have, and that guy is Spoo. As someone once said in another thread Good Taste Thread I don't remember the exact words but basically it was that "good taste is something that you might want to copy". And there a lot of spectacular outfitsfrom a lot of members that I would like to wear. nod[1].gif

From that picture, the only thing that I can say about the suit is that it's grey. Whether it's dated and/or full-fitting would require a better picture, but I'd guess that it is. If you like it, then it's fine, but it won't change my opinion, so let's just move on and avoid derailing the thread with senseless opinion wars.
