Good Natured Advice Thread (improving a business wardrobe) - Page 683

Jungle Boogie:  Having your company purchased is just like prison.  Come September 1st, find the biggest guy from the new management team and immediately beat the crap out of him in front of everyone.  Then casually put your jacket back on, adjust your tie and smile at everyone before walking away while whistling.

@junglerollerWe all wish you the best of luck. I am sure nothing bad will happen.

Do you have a pic of this suit that you are picturing?

I'm new to the forum, so rather than giving you my own advice, I'll point you in the direction of someone else's advice:

 

Practical Thoughts on Coherent Combinations for Beginners

 

It's not a bible, but it's useful, and it opens with some thoughts on what it means to commit to coherence vs. fashionable statement-making in menswear. And while it won't tell you whether hacking pockets are acceptable with DB jackets, it will give you some sense of how details correlate with formality, and what forms "make sense." Maybe you'll find it helpful.

And now for my own newb question:

 

Does anyone have any recommendations for good, CM-style casual jackets, i.e. something along the lines of a Harrington or a Valstar, wearable with chinos or casual wool trousers? I don't really have experience in that realm, and can feel lost without a jacket and tie.

Classic Unionmade "sorry, we sold out" e-mail. BOOO.

 

In other news: Cesare Attolini for Luciano Barbera Sartoriale suit on the way via B&S!

 

This also puts an end to my black captoe conundrum, but I'll probably pick up the Rain MTO anyway.

Say again my friend, in a way one can understand?

Hope you and yours are well biggrin.gif

I am confused.
Is the phrase "Take a stab at it" not used in England?
Who is you and yours?

Well, I thought because of the boot´s inherently practical nature that they would naturally rank lower on the formality scale than, let's say oxford shoes. As I said though, I'm no shoe guy.

Edit. I found the answer to my original question (They linked Manton's book BTW). I really need to read more on shoes/boots.

Something like this.

As a (cunning) linguist I understand the different connotations of the phrase 'take a stab at...' it was the word 'becomers' that foxed me.

"I hope you and yours are well" - are you well? and are those you care for well?
