WAYWRN Composite -- 25 thumb minimum - Page 24

post #346 of 2070

Cheers gents.

 

I managed to score three borrelli 7-folds off ebay for a pittance as one of my first ever tie purchases when I transitioned to looking like a proper Prof. They tie knots so beautifully that I happily wear them even though they are 3.75 inches wide! I thought I might have gotten lucky, but Stitch, you seem to have had good experiences too.

 

Borrelli's don't get mentioned as much these days when talking about ties, but I'm a fan, though they are hard to find at a decent price (perhaps shop the finest?). They are, I think, way too expensive new.

i got the one in the SC pic at the borrelli boutique in nyc for a hundo. was 50% off, and id never pay 200 for it.

the other was from STF, i think was 89, a great deal if you ask me, but i dont like most of the borrellis they offer.

they really are known for their shirts, but i have borrelli pants and a SC and ties and have handled some of their outerwear and shoes and it is all absolutely amazing. i love what they do top to bottom.

I got that light blue Barba that Butler liked from Shop The Finest. If you're in LA, you really should go. The in-person is so much better than the site IMO.

re contrasting shoes, I really like strongly contrasting shoes sometimes. For example, I really like the combination of tan cotton suit, white shirt, black tie, and black shoes. I think it looks super graphic and excellent. But, I do tend to favor that high-contrast look with shoes darker rather than lighter.

Cheers for the heads up about STF.

Chinos and black shoes is certainly a military look. So certainly a precedent. Can look sharp but evokes the association.
post #350 of 2070
I love STF. Almost all my shirts are from them and some pants and ties too.
post #351 of 2070
Shut up, you lucky SOB. I have to have my shirts made because nothing OTR fits.

It must be so hard living such a fancy bespoken life.
post #353 of 2070
Honestly, it's a pain in the ass. I've needed new shirts for months, and I haven't gotten any because the MTM process sucks. I even went to meet up with Hemrajani a couple of months ago, but when I got to the hotel, he didn't pick up the phone. ffffuuuu.gif Luxire hasn't been able to nail down my fit, so the next step is sending them a shirt to copy, but, again, what a pain in the ass.

MASSIVE FUCKING BATCH. But I had to get to Stitchy's Dick Post.

 

Apologies if anyone was missed. Went on autopilot. I did double check for @kulata

PSA: THE FOLLOWING IS A DICK POST!

If you don't want to read a dick post, or you don't really care about established SF style or mantra, and just want to keep on marching to your personal beat of doing what you want and reminding yourself that people in real life love how you look, then please do not read the remainder of this post. Seriously. Simply scroll past this post and keep on keeping on.

If, however, you are interested in improvement by SF standards, and you are willing to accept that maybe, just maybe, you can use some help, then please do continue reading.

Not too long ago there were posters here that have been around for ages and were well regarded and appreciated for their breadth of knowledge. They would do new posters THE FAVOR of telling them when they looked like crap. Be it individual items, item combinations, or fit, if it was bad, they said so. Sometimes harshly, but with the explicit goal of trying to help people look better and improve. They did this for a long time. And for many reasons, too many to enumerate, they pretty much all but stopped.

We are now left with many posters that also have a breadth of knowledge and have proven that they learned what SF was teaching and they dress in exemplary fashion. However, they are for the most part new-ish, and very nice, and simply do not carry the weight of the old guard. As such, the criticism has been toned down, the atmosphere of "I like it so its good" has become ever larger and the push back is harder.

Now, I don't have a lot of knowledge, and I don't always dress in exemplary fashion, and I have had many a not so nice response to the feedback and knowledgable that people in the past were kind enough to give me. But I have learned a thing or two, and I do understand a lot about what makes SF great and what type of looks are great by SF standards. The above has been something I have thinking about for a while, and I decided that I wanted to say something.

There are too many specific areas to address, so will address only one for now. And perhaps it will be the only area I address at all.

Ties. Its not very nuanced at its simplest and its the easiest to point out. My apologies to the people who posted the examples I am going to give, and I hope that you realize that this is not in the spirit of degradation, it is in the spirit of trying to be helpful. To help the continuity of what SFs boundaries are. Or at least what they were.

The following ties are bad. They are either garish or too loud or of a bad color for tie or flat out ugly, but they are all bad. There is no way around it. There is no specific reason to say why this is true, it simply is true by SFs standards. As such, if you want to wear such a tie, go right ahead, but if you decide to post one here, please don't be surprised or indignant when you are told that your tie is ugly. SF is trying to help you. Trying to give you a leg up in the world of looking good. If you do not care, that is fine, but please don't waste anyones time defending your choice. Simply accept that they are ugly ties here, and then choose to wear them or not. But at least have the respect to appreciated that SF did not pull this out of its ass.

That said....

If you are also interested in knowing what a nice tie looks like according to SFs standards, I have gathered some examples of that as well, so you may understand what SF says is a nice tie.

Someone was kind enough to add a thumbs up on my posted picture - it had petered out at 19 for the longest time shog[1].gif .

That suit is too amazing to not get included.

post #357 of 2070
claghorn, are you really wearing a windowpane jacket with glen plaid pants?

Anyway, that suit cerruti is wearing looks like a vintage lesser I have. Easily my most FU suit. I don't think I've worn it in the last five years. Sigh.

Looking more closely, though, it's not the same cloth. His is more F-U than mine.

Have you tried proper cloth? I've had great luck with them. 2 week turnaround time.
