Good Natured Advice Thread (improving a business wardrobe) - Page 2172

post #32566 of 37428

Thanks guys this is really cool insight.

 

I just had a discussion with the rest of the team, and I'm pretty sure the blue shirt will make it to the inventory next week.

 

I like the idea of the new items too, but I imagine the page would need some reformatting to avoid confusion.

Blue shirts look better on most people than white and are worn casually more easily.

Cologne/toiletry kit wasn't a bad idea though. Also a navy tie.

 

How are his posts today any different from the usual nonsense he posts trying to be funny?  He might be telling the truth when he says he has not left the house for three months so that he can focus on his SF posts.

- Front not clean.

- Trousers not falling cleanly over the shoes.

- Trousers crawling up between the butt cheeks resulting in disrupted lines at the back.

- What looks to be like to much room around the pockets and front (to the left of the crotch in the first picture). Also, I feel like, at least when standing, there's to much room around the hip area. But I'm afraid of decreasing it because as you can see, the trousers are already riding up between the butt cheeks. On the other hand, not tightening the seat area makes the trousers look like they're "sagging".

 

I'm not sure what alterations to ask for, but I'm considering one of the following two routes:

 

1

- Increase back rise at the crotch by 0,25" to remedy the problem of the trousers riding up between the butt cheeks.

- Scoop out the seat by 0,25" for the same reason as above.

- Slanted/military hem. Decrease front length by 0,25" and increase back length by 0,5" resulting in a 0,75" slant.

 

2

- Increase back rise at the crotch by 0,25" to remedy the problem of the trousers riding up between the butt cheeks.

- Scoop out the seat by 0,5" for the same reason as above. Note, this is 0,25" MORE than alternative 1.

- Slanted/military hem. Decrease front length by 0,25" and increase back length by 0,5" resulting in a 0,75" slant.

- Decrease half hip measurement at front by 0,25" to tighten the front seat area. I'm imagining this will render a cleaner look around the pockets.

- Decrease half hip measurement at the back by 0,25" to tighten the back seat area. I'm imagining this will render a cleaner look around the pockets.

- Decrease front rise by 0,25". I'm imagining this will render a cleaner look as well.

- Increase back rise at waist by 0,25" in order to give my butt/back a little more room in addition to the first alteration under this alternative (2).

 

What do you guys suggest? I'd appreciate your feedback.  [...]

He ended up giving some good opinion though

Good Natured PSA: MyHabit, Amazon's sister site, is having a sale on high end ties. Zegna, Isaia, Borrelli, Cuccinelli in the $80-100 USD range. And not all of them are hideous! 

 

Edit: For some reason it won't let me link to the sale, but it is on the front page of the site at www.myhabit.com

 

If you feel like it, you can use my referral link and we'll both get $20 off:

Sometimes the Cucinelli patterns are really inspired. Wish they weren't so dang narrow.

If any 42R's are looking for a DB blazer, there's a cool listing on grail-ed. Item number 278102.


PRL made in USA for like 70 bucks. NWT. Looks a hair older, but it's pretty staple.

Cheers.

Anyone have any thoughts on fly-front dress shirts? 

 

When I’m in one of my (increasingly common) nitpicky moods it bothers me a bit that when wearing a tie someone standing to my side might still be able to see the buttons (yeah,  I know…), therefore:

Would you guys consider this PS strictly for Spring/Summer due to the bright colors? For the record it it's 70/30 wool/silk.

My Clag inspired outfit for wife's work party tonight.

Vriche I would wear that year round. My only hesitation is that it's got a large concentration of wool which might be out of place for summer but the color is light enough to work

Can anyone tell me if there's a difference between pants labeled "Incotex 1951" and "Incotex Slowear"? Is the latter considered inferior?

The reason I ask is because I came across a bunch of them on fleabay. They were made in Italy and had the split curtain waist... so seems like the same Incotex 1951 quality we all like

@Ich_Dien, I think you're the expert here?

http://www.slowear.com/en/about, if I understand correctly, Incotex is now owned by a group called Slowear.

Thanks, Justin! You're right about the material not being too suitable for Summer. I really wanted to get it for now but was concerned about it clashing with my F/W wardrobe due to the bright red but I'm gonna go with it. Cheers!

If you've no familiarity with Monsieur (sp?) Fox, I'd add that you could probably sneak it into the summery wardrobe, or at least airing. It's not a terribly dense wool, and COULD be visually mistaken for a linen blend imo
