HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 1065

post #15961 of 44046
Thanks so much for all the compliments and thumbs, gents. Bust day at work, so unable to to reply, but I am back in the saddle now!

@EliodA and @SeaJen, no, no personal photographer lol. But I do have a good buddy who is a very talented photographer who does me teh favor of taking pics from time to time.

As far as the jacket sleeves, the SC is MTO Formosa from NMWA (that answers your question @Betelgeuse), there was a snafu when the jacket first arrived which needed alteration. Formosa fixed the issue, but for some reason they finished the sleeves, and I have short arms, so that was the only solution. At first it bugged me, but it has since grown on me. I think its spunky and different.

@Caustic Man, brown trews are perhaps the best trews.


@Anden, thanks, man. I gave you my word did I not? smile.gif

@ShawnBC, much appreciated. I can find something bad, or suboptimal, but Id rather leave it be.

@ridethecliche, I am a farmer. So, yeah. And thanks!

@DavidLane, much appreciated. The trousers are Epaulet MTO mocha lambswool. Highly recommended.

@GMMcL, thanks you kindly. I find that the trick with brown/beige trousers is the shade. With gray, as long as you are mid gray or lighter, you are pretty much money and the shades are pretty much interchangeable with what is up top. Unless you are wearing something very dark or very light, most shades of gray trousers will work.

With brown/beige though, I think you need to be much more careful with what shade you pick based on the SC and tie. For example, with your SC (which is awesome) I would not hesitate a second to wear brown trou, but not at all the ones I am wearing. They need a darker, cooler, more chocolatey brown. Whereas said color would not work well with the check SC I am wearing, it needed a lighter, warmer, more saturated brown (I have a pair of each and held them up with the SC and it was no contest), and yet, had I gone lighter, to beige, that also would probably have been off.

Tl;rd, something in the brown family will almost always work for trousers but its a lot easier to botch than picking a shade of gray.

Nor I. Ideally a little cuff should show, but I dont mind that much when it doesnt, and also, often the way you hold your arms for a pic tends to hide cuff that would otherwise show.

Plus one. And many other greats fits as well today. Solid showing, fellow forumites!

@Stilig, I keep going back and forth on whether or not I like the coat there. Its definitely a young and slightly louche look. Like from a Belstaff lookbook. I dont think I would do it, but I will go ahead and say I like it on you, despite my knee jerk reaction.

I've not yet mastered (based solely on thumbs, mind you) the art of wearing the beige trew. And I like it so much.
I also love the combo of that gun check with that color grenadine tie -- I have similar of each, and deploy them together as often as I can get away with.

Tell me, what label is this sportcoat?

I checked the perimeter of SF.  Everything seems secure.  Ok.  Back to my post.

nabil, is that a suit? The texture is amazing.

 

It's just a sportscoat, my man. Interestingly, I recently placed an order for a grey DB. Pictures soon, when it's time for the first fitting (next week, hopefully).

Because he is about to burn that jacket.

Given the choice I would burn that pocket square first.

Helpful insight.
It's the saturated desert beige that I've seen Spoo pull off (what else is new) that I've tried a few times to no avail.

Luigi Bianchi Mantova. Bought on Yoox lately and nipped in at the back just a hair to pull it closer to my body.
I find Luigi Bianchi and their diffusion LBM 1911 line fit me very well (despite the short cut and high button point -- THAT'S RIGHT SF; FU AND YOUR CONVENTION!)
In fact, I bought three of the same style in different colorways (beige, blue/brown, green/gray) during the Yoox sale, and have 3 more at last count. See? (Click to show)
Here are the other 2 from Yoox

And one of the others. I also have a green donegal, and one I'm forgetting.

Alfred Sargent. e-thrift. Long time coming; I'd had my eye out for hatch grain chukkas for a good long time. Was stoked to win these.

Thanks for the thumbs, doods.
post #15970 of 44046
Fwiw, LBM1911 is not Lubiam's diffusion line. It is simply a standalone line/project within the company, with separate designers and a concept anchored on working with washed, garment-dyed and printed fabrics, with the lightest possible construction.
post #15971 of 44046

I almost bought a few of those when they were on sale at Yoox but they didn't have the patterns I liked in store. Yoox is going to be my go to for clothes in the future. Serious deals there sometimes!

Cool man. I wondered bc that exact fabric is what this Brooks Brothers jacket I picked up on sale this season is made of. But yours is clearly different in cut and configuration.

Looks great on you!

Thanks, mango. So does yours. If I had one nit, I wish mine were patch pocket like yours. fing02[1].gif
post #15975 of 44046
Do people not like the color/item combination of the outfit (too matchy?) or the cut of the jacket? I honestly really liked both. I even like the pocket square fold tbh.
