HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 1084

This is CM, so I probably should have buttoned my collar.  Oh well, I'll make up for it with some Mick Jagger:

 

 

 

Tie:  Chipp silk matka

 

Shoes:  AE Westchester

 

Everything else: Brooks Brothers

I think I might be channelling AAS with this fit. Or maybe DonC?

 

Anyway, I believe we have a five-pattern bingo here.

Not bad! Normally grey shirts are meh, but this one works well here as a bridge between tie and jacket.

 

I also like your post-structuralist inclusion of the camera within its own image. Very self-referential!

Cheers, thanks!  

 

Actually, the camera was so busy being post-structuralist it failed to render the shirt properly.  It's just a regular blue BB OCBD.  I do have my eye on a Kamakura grey one, though...

Herein lies the problem - our objects seek to rebel against the paradigm within which we have sought to constrain their usefulness.

 

I believe Jacques Derrida has something incomprehensible to say about this.

OH GAWD DERRIDA my sister did PhD work on that stuff and she doesn't even understand it.

I hope that pink/blue/navy/white striped shirt in the pile is heading to the Goodwill!  Suit looks really good.  Hopefully I'll see you at that trunk show.

Choc is 6 and a half feet plus.  2" cuff is pretty standard for average height guys.

+1 on others' comments, this is really a beautiful fit IMO.  Don't often see a a hard 3 that looks this good. 

Deets on cloth and make would b great.

I believe you're chanelling a train wreck here. Everything fits well, but that's the only nice thing I can say about that fit. Why are you wearing a dark and very rustic waistcoat with a pink tie, lighter than navy jacket and light trousers and a flower lapel?

It just doesn't work. Ditch the waistcoat, the purple socks and quite possible the loafers, and you have yourself a nice fit.

Tie is tangerine, not pink. Maybe you need to adjust your monitor?

 

Agree about the socks and shoes - they are too much. OTOH I still like everything above the ankles.

 

Appreciate your feedback though (as always), even if I disagree with it.
