Nice fit Roycru, but tell me about the art. I collect a lot of similar stuff.

Not that I condone Crocs, but in the limited settings they might be acceptable (on a boat, or the beach) when would wearing them with socks ever make sense? There was this dude we used to call "Crocs with socks" for that very reason.

Everyone has an opinion. I like it.

Curious: What socks wouldn't look incongruous with ivory trousers in summer? Genuine question. Navy is too dark, and light colors seem geriatric.

I am of the belief that lace up shoes deserve socks. Period.
Your look(the top part) was a nice Summery look. My feeling is that you tried to bring that Summery feel to the bottom by wearing lace-ups with no socks.

I am not saying that I am for no socks ever. But I only like them with loafer style shoes. NEVER with lace-ups. Looks silly to me and seems that the wearer is trying too hard. Just because the weather is nice, doesn't mean that not wearing socks emphasizes/highlights a "Summery" look. My $.02.

With your outfit, I would have worn brown-ish socks.

It might be a freudian slip, or it might not. 

Anyway, good to see that you read the text and not just look at the pictures. :lol:

It's my friend's breakfast room.  Those things are on all four walls.  My friend gets them in foreign countries.

Cesare Attolini suit
TF SHIRT
TF tie
Tods black loafers

@The_Foxx Is that bespoke? I've heard good things about Attolini, but didn't know where they were available (RTW, or only bespoke in Europe, etc)
post #22838 of 44076
Oh how I wish Mr. Fox would snap some good quality pictures. It is a shame that we can't see the pix in any better quality when he dresses so darn well.
post #22839 of 44076
@The_Foxx I'll join the gentlemen above in praising your suit. Looks a lot better on you than the Sartorio suits you usually wear, which always seem a bit too tight around the shoulders and upper arms.
And yes, post better pics please smile.gif

Thanks for the compliments guys-- it is a more generous fit than my sartorios (which I prefer), and unfortunately my only Cesare Attolini suit, from the Madison Ave store (rtw not bespoke)

@venividivicibj Attolini also does MTM, through their authorised dealers.

Who makes Attolini? I think I read on the French thread it was made by someone else well known?

Sartorio is Kiton right?

Attolini is made by..... Attolini :D  Then there's Stile Latino, which is made by Attolini and is to them what Sartorio is to Kiton.

Personally, I'd rate Attolini among the very best RTW there is.

 

Edit: found a pic of the old man himself:

+1, never owned any Attolini, but base on my try on experience I definitely like them a lot, and for nearly the same money (if I have) I would definitely prefer Attolini over Kiton

Ivory socks. What else would you wear? I use Pantherella.
