That ain't me!

You saw me in person!

 

For that jacket, a nice dark navy would do. A brown would do. A burgundy would do. Lose the shirt.

Not a fan of going shirtless with jackets tbh.

I have big holes in my wardrobe collection due to the recent sell offs. That's fine. Here is my plan to restore my wardrobe collection. It may be groundhog day but I will lay out the plan and see how much progress I can make within the next 6 months. Please feel free to comment on the plan. Here is the work in progress list.

 

 

1. Plan to acquire within 2-4 weeks.

4. B&Tailor Suit(s) in May 2015

 

Sport Coats

 

Pants

5.

ROTA Light Grey Trousers (Click to show)

Ties

 

Shirts 

 

Shoes

 

So if I follow this plan, I should have 3 Formosa suits, 1 Suit Supply suit, 2 Zegna beater suits, 1 Wedding suit, for a total of 7 suits that I can rotate.

I totally feel you. Same stuff over and over. Just wanted to summarize.

Noodles,
Who makes the suit in the bottom photo. I like the way the shoulders fit you.

That is E.Zegna. Thanks for the compliment but it is one size small for me.

Chest is small, not the shoulders.

@jrd617 I haven't had experience with Septieme Largeur but I have bought from their lower end Markowski brand. I can easily say they were one of the worst pairs of shoes I've ever bought. The shoes were clearly sprayed to colour and developed uncoverable blemishes in the toe box. Worse than that the service was abominable. French is my second language and the gentleman in charge cared more to correct a term I used than address the issue (I said cobbler instead of tanner....as if there a store anywhere that is exclusive to either). 

 

All in all that left me with very little confidence in their premium brand. Despite the nice option of custom patina etc. If you can't even provide a half decent product at 200 euros (I was expecting maybe Meermin quality or Loding) then what am I to expect at 300? Stay away.

RTC - Rust is the color you are looking for.

Rust pants?

Jesus, I need to invent rainbow color changing pants or something.

@The Noodles, at least by the end of 2014 you will finally have a navy solid and grey solid that fits. I am glad you are getting the navy birdseye Formosa.

Thank goodness.

Hey does anyone use pinterest? I've started an account but I'm still figuring it out. Is there a list of styleforum members with accounts? Same as tumblr? A lot of the menswear stuff on there are kinda dreadful and just product advertising, so some more SF approved pinners would be appreciated.

 

Oh mine is "isohei" http://www.pinterest.com/isohei/

 

Be nice. I want at least ten followers before I die.
