I consider myself to have improved a little in the year or so I've been posting here. However, I'm concerned that my most popular fits have essentially ridden on the back of a single astute purchase - like that SuitSupply chalkstripe suit, or the burgundy windowpane Canali before it. All I had to do was walk into a shop and buy the thing. (Oh yeah, and maybe have a tailor give it a nip and tuck here or there.)
My project for the next year will be to get thumbs for putting together great fits from staid, unsensational elements. I've managed this a couple of times but mostly my taste seems too outré for the forum, which has me thinking that maybe I'm not getting away with it in real life either. (Although my recent six-pattern royal flush did actually get a lot of love on the street - so who knows...)
Looking back on my gallery, here are a trio of past fits which I feel show promise.
Mind you, I had to trawl through an awful lot of meh to find these. One interesting thing is that they all feature a plain light blue shirt and a Henry Carter tie. Maybe that's the secret...
