I was going to say something similar. I grew up in San Diego and the weather there is very conducive to flannel at certain times. Just not for half the year like in Illinois or New York.

Agreed as well. Tweed and Flannel should probably not make up a large part of a So Cal wardrobe, but you can certainly do well with a few items.

Mid brown and deep navy? You need to take off your crazy pants Sander :-)

More on sockless loafers:
Age is a factor too, with the older you are, the more out of place the look is. Though I would still not consider that outfit one of the truly rare outfits with which sockless loafers are a good choice (for pretty much the same reason as gmmcl's...though I felt more favorable towards these than gmmcl's and I suspect age is a factor as sans shoes, I liked gmmcl's outfit more..

Speaking of flannel... revisiting the first suit I ever had made, which I rarely reach for because of the stripes and what feels (but doesn't seem to look in pics as much) like overly-structured shoulders. Length is 1" longer than my other suits and lapels are a bit wider - a good thing, I know. satisfied.gif

Work it back into the rotation?



Migrating tie

Shoulders don't look good @jcmeyer, sorry. And I don't care for that fabric either. On top of that, the sleeves are too short...

post #21143 of 43859

Is it just me or does jcmeyer appear very robotic in his ppictures? Maybe it's how square his shoulders are, how forward they are or how his arms hang, but something always made me think that he looked very uncomfortable while wearing his suits. It is it the suit or the wearer?

 

Disclaimer: please don't interpret this the wrong way. I ask this out of curiosity, not to scrutinize, condemn or criticize.

 

I do like the pattern though. Reminds me of the ill-fitting suit in SkyFall. Great look, but it had a poor fit.

He looks pretty relaxed to me.

Evening gents!

The trousers look off (drifting front crease) as well. Something you might see when the waistband is taken in too much from the back seam. Have you lost weight since this suit was made?

There are different poses for different purposes.  His top photo is what many would call the ‘Robopose’ and is intended to allow evaluation of how well things fit.   It’s practical, not an aesthetic statement.  See the tailoring thread for more info on how to take photos for purposes of fit evaluation.

 

Cheers,

Edit: 

 

P.S.:  As you probably know, the suit (and other clothing) in Skyfall was meant to look ill-fitting.  Bond’s ability or inability to do his job was the main theme of the screenplay.  At the beginning of the film he's out of physical shape and couldn't even pass his physical exam.  Wardrobe was designed to reinforce this.

Buttoning point is also a little high.

 

I wear natural (no padding) shoulders most of the time, and I find a lot of the shoulders in this thread to be too structured, but yours is not bad at all compared to a lot of what I see. Still, if you're like me, and just can't stand heavy shoulders, then you'll probably never feel very comfortable in something like this.

@Kent Wang I think you'd be better served by slightly structured and/or extended shoulders, tbh.
Natural shoulders make your head look big IMO, as exemplified in your last fit. Which is excellent for the rest.
