HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 1076

I love oxford cloth. I have a number of spreads in it. Just not a fan of button downs. But seriously. Love oxford. I'd be happy only wearing it.

I concur with the awesomeness of oxford spreads. I only have two myself, but they fill a gap when traditional spreads are too formal, and OCBD is not necessary. I often wear them with bow ties.

Well played with that tie GMMcL. I've commented before (and I can't remember if it was something I picked up explicitly or implicitly while reading whnay's good taste thread) that the key to making large scale patterned ties work is to wear them with a vest (preventing the scale of the pattern from dominating the outfit)

Count me as another Oxford weave lover.

 

Oxford cloth has such a lot of tasteful visual interest to it without being in-your-face that it’s a shame to think it needs to be limited to button-down collars (although of course it’s perfect for those, too).

 

Cheers,

 

Ac

My partner and I both have a pronounced taste for CM, and we influence each other's tastes. This makes for very crowded closets.

 

So now I'm speculating who on these boards is your partner.  Patrick Booth or Film Noir Buff don't seem likely.

I am probably in the absolute minority here, but think a pair of Oxfords would have improved Crat´s fit tremendously. I don't think I have seen any suit-loafer combination where this wasn't the case.

 

It's (loafers + DB) an off-point look, IMO. But knowing that Crat knows his stuff I just put this down to awsm sprezz. 

 

Great look steffen  ^^^  In fact all the last half dozen r awsm, cept mebe Clag's Steve McQueen :plain:  Not yr usual brilliance C dude

Thank you sir.
Pre SF, I used to wear odd vests a lot more. But I've simplified so I can get back to basics and elevate my game one step at a time.
And I totally agree re: loud tie/waistcoat. In fact, I'd go one step further and say its truly symbiotic: A waistcoat (a solid colored one, anyway) demands a stronger pattern tie underneath just as much as the strong pattern demands something to weigh it down.

Yesterday.  Black watch, baby.  I think a navy tie may have been better, but I'm digging the green too.

I would have worn blackwatch today if I hadn't gotten snowed in. I'll always feel intimidated knowing you're watching though!
