HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 1413

post #21181 of 45074
@cakv you'll get no argument from me regarding from whom my children get their looks. Shoes are AE Mora.

@Maximus Rex the bride's mother wanted morning dress, but the groom refused because he didn't want to wear a top hat. My wife is related to the groom.

Work it back into the rotation?



Now that's a true robo pose.

As I said, insanely opulent. I cant really wrap my head around it, to be honest. The one consolation I can take from it is that all that money now enters the economy (oh, and that I got to experience it).

Wow, that's staking a lot on one roll of the dice. My daughter is getting married in 2016:confused:

re the comment about shoulders- I have some soft shouldered KW suits and get similar feedback from time to time.  You get the naked truth with a soft shoulder.  They're not forgiving to a small drop, but part of the big head effect is the pic itself imo.

If the pic was taken from across the other side of the street the photographer would avoid the perspective distortion that makes your body look smaller in proportion to your head.  :teach:

One of my least Claggish fits (and another shirt, actually the twin from a few days ago, whose sleeves are too short, though at this point in the day, they've been somewhat revealed as the linen in the jacket has caused the jacket sleeves to shorten, via wrinkling, with wear).

Awesome jacket and fit - who is the maker? What kind of fabric is it?

So I thought the shoulders were NOT structured.

The shoulder is still very soft with minimal padding but the seam allowances inside the sleevehead are pressed open to give a slight bit of volume.  

 

 

Apparently there is some structure ('minimal padding'), but I think it's the pressed open seam at the sleevehead that's key here.

Yeah, you're probably right, though that horizontal-like line may be caused by the sleevehead, see above.

 

BTW, that blue suit you posted recently (yesterday?) is absolutely spot on. Unlike all the big name Italian and English bespoke tailors, I have yet to see anything by @Despos that I didn't like. There are many examples here on SF, even from very famous tailors commisioned by very experienced members, whose bespoke projects have had disappointing results. But it seems Chris Despos always delivers. If only Chicago weren't so far away from Jakarta (I doubt one can get much further on this globe...)

 

@SeaJen that wedding budget is... decadent.

What do you guys mean by "horizontal" shoulders? I'm confused

post #21190 of 45074

post #21191 of 45074
Help me here. What are we looking at? The slope of the shoulders? The shoulder expression?

It's a mannequin, you know.

This is truly excellent even by your high standards, Claghorn.  Your tie game has been killing it of late.

Greg, is that flannel in the swatch books? because I don't see it online. At least not in the 8/9 oz range

post #21195 of 45074
It's on special cards. Not in the regular books
