Welcome words; I need add none.

"Proper" hats are almost inherently vintage.  But I think you can and should rock them, traditionally, contemporarily, or just to be irritating.  They are all valid.  However, there is something of a science to getting the proportions right, and I think you could use one with a little less volume.  But definitely worth experimenting.

Yes, certainly slighter than that, but a break nevertheless.

You should be prepared to lose your balls rather than dress so horribly for a "date".  Show yourself some respect, man!  You're taking your wife out, not fixing your car (an image that is even more preposterous, of course).

This is the guy who, if we are to believe his posts, hides in the bathroom so his wife doesn't catch him on StyleForum...

Agreed. I dress like this on the weekends as well. I wouldn't post pictures on WAYWRN, but I also wouldn't hide my head in shame either. I suspect it is also a contextual issue as I've come to dress much more casually on the weekends since we moved from the City to the burbs and spend more time at kid events and running errands and less time going out with friends.

Picked up the Formosa. Pants dropped off.

Mr.Field says hello to David or unbel.

U guys being harsh on my shirt today. Good thing I can throw my wife under the bus.

I like that shirt noodles. I'm wearing a pink/white flannel j crew shirt now, but it's mostly linen!

You need to up your casual game. It's possible to do that and look great. Look at @Cotton Dockers for example.

I'm glad your wife is capable of dressing you, but dude rock it yourself. 1410639103399.jpg 1301k .jpg file

Here's a sneak peak.

Killing it in that suit, Noodles.  But a hand-constructed masterpiece of the Neapolitan art of tailoring deserves more respect from its accompanying pocket square.  It's like making a Scotch and Soda with 25 year old Balvenie single malt and Pellegrino that has gone flat.

What did you have in mind then?
post #11789 of 37396

Fab suit Noodles, and we're all looking forward to further fit pix.

 

@EFV, I would so buy that hat. It's a classic Fedora in a beautiful colour, and I know you can make it work - I've seen you rock a white Panama, which if anything is an even more attention-grabbing piece of headgear.

 

I think if there's any one group of people who are going to initiate a men's hat revival, it's SF. That's no insult to the Fedora Lounge people, but they are by definition a niche group whereas SF is a much broader church.

 

Quite frankly I think that what's missing from all the hundreds of otherwise great rigs posted on this board is a decent hat. It completes the look of a well-dressed gentleman.

 

Of course, this is only true of shots posed outdoors. Wearing a hat inside the house is unacceptable. (I believe there may be rare exceptions to this rule, but I'm not sure what they are. Funerals maybe? Can't remember.)
