Does anyone see the use of light brown/tan shirts? I'm making a list of shirts to get when I go to my first tailor on Black Friday.

post #15482 of 37392

Corset IS NOT the way to go.

 

And the overly tight jacket is a very Italian thing...made well know by style icon Lino Ieluzzi of Al Bazar Milano...he is covered often at Pitti Uomo, etc...and is know for his very tight fitting pulling double breasted jackets. 

 

some of that guys fits are quite nice...ignoring certain things that I do not like...like his tight fitting jackets, use of waistcoats, pocket square use, etc.

He's always pops up on my explore page on Instagram. I think the individual pieces he has are nice, but I'm not a fan of the fit of his jackets, and his overly poofed squares.

That's the guy, has like 160k instagram followers or something, more in to those silly bracelets and things like that that the IG masses seem to love. Probably wears a pinky ring too peepwall[1].gif Wears his stuff extremely tight, as you can see.

Takes
1. A lot of people eschew the normal grey flannel pants
2. White shirts work well. Blank canvas?
3. Plain tie is more common but check the grad thread for more options


@kulata 

 

Echoing jrd, this is great. Really wanting one now too. These two patterns were my favorite of the bunch.

160k? That's probably more than the whole of SF... He's up there with the usual crowd of clowns and poseurs: http://www.billionaire.com/mens-fashion/1163/top-ten-italian-mens-style-instagrams

So, some will recall that I asked if I should keep my Carmina double monks about a month back.  You guys convinced me to keep them (especially Cleav) and I pulled them from B&S.  Well, I forgot that I listed them on eBay and got a message today that they sold for the Buy it Now price.  I priced them pretty low and I am pretty bummed because I planned on keeping them.  It sucks, but I have no choice to honor the sale and send them off.  Just venting....

I saw those for sale. Suede correct? They looked great and well taken care off, but I have other priorities.

They forgot #1 Italian Style Icon - Gianni Cerutti of Passagio Cravatte

 

Does he fit the criteria...

 

clown? yes

poseur? yes

 

ok..he's in the club now.

The universe is speaking to you, Murl.

You don't like the dub monks, SB? 

 

I'm more partial to single monks like these:

 

 

Though possibly with something in the toe box to break up that expanse (or one with the empty expanse, one with some broguing or a cap toe). It's the elegant swoop of the strap along parallel to the sole that I find very nice and hard to find in affordable versions.

 

Murl: condolences. Though as you know better than many of us, at least it's a first world problem.

Iso, it occurrs to me that you favor the GQ/tumblr/#menswear look that is pretty much shunned here.

Hence, every time you post a pic of something you like, it gets lots of hate.

SF is not the be all end all of clothing. If you find that through the advice you get here you are more often rejecting what you like in you heart than embracing it, then you should probably do some thinking.

I think most new SF members come from the GQ/Details/Esquire/#menswear school of aesthetics

I know when I first started my journey, I was definitely from that camp. And I remember a young Stitch who wore Z. Couture loafers everyday. smile.gif

Time lurking of the forum will get rid of that. And reading classic menswear text. Manton's book is a good place to start. Iso, why don't you pick that one up?
