HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 1606

Ran out of daylight again thanks to my obsession, so you get a thrift store dressing room fit. Lighting leaves something to be desired. Pants are mid gray. Shoes (unshown) are brown suede.

I think one of Boglioli's washed wool jackets would be perfect.

I'm liking this better, K - the color play is good. One thing I've noticed in many of your shots is your tie length. Are you exceptionally tall and need long ties? Get them suckers down to your belt, son!

I think that is more a function of my waistline than my tie length. So, my waist is pretty low, due to my body shape, it's pretty much impossible to wear pants at my natural waist. I'd look ridiculous. So I've been playing around lately with trying to get the blades relatively equal in length, and as a consequence, they usually fall short of my waistline. Probably have to go back to wearing the big blade longer.

 

Anyway, thanks for the thumb!

Not only could I never pull off wearing those pants, I could not even imagine where they are sold! Keep living that dream.

You've taken the most conservative of suits, grabbed all the right accessories (except for the cufflinks), and then decided to put on a casual shirt.
 

Where? He's got one under that gingham dress shirt?

Well, sir, while I may not agree with what you say, I'll defend to the death your right to be wrong! biggrin.gif

Wearing a safari jacket with tie is an inspired choice. All that's missing is the pith helmet.

Thanks to y'all for your support, encouragement, word of advice and recommendations for pointed collars, though I do have quite a few in my collection. I felt something was missing from certain neck range shots (collar looking rather too small for the lapels) but I can say it is barely noticeable in live. Ok, that leaves me to conclude that the rule of thumb on SF is for the collar shirt to sit under the lapels.

As for the jacket size, I have gone two sizes up and from all indications especially from those who pointed that it fits snugly, I can only say that photos don't do my outfits justice. Could it be angles from which certain shots are fired? Honestly, I don't know. shog[1].gif That outfit received bucket loads of compliments yesterday and I took time to ask fashion aficionados (knowledgeable fashion enthusiasts) if the jacket fit was proportionate, no single one of them pointed to the contrary. They all thought the jacket was amazing and fit was spot on. I knew I was going to post these pictures on here and wanted to allay the chances of picking me out on that, ehe, the worst feared dilemma happened..... oh dear

I have few bespoke suits but then again, it is going to look inordinately tight if I put on more weight and it is going to be a reiteration process where I would have to be singled out every time I put up photos. I have reduced the number of days I go to the gym and have put myself on proper diet just to catch up with some of my excessively expensive clothes rather than having to change an entire wardrobe simply for a weight gain. I looked on LUIGI BIANCHI website and they seem to have an interesting collection but I will pass on that. I will patiently wait when the time is right for my investments to pay for my luxury (Savile Row Bespoke Suits) in no too long a time. For now, I will do with what I have wink.gif

If I may, the principal issue after sizing at up remains the upper bicep. If you can get more room in the top 1/3 of the shoulder and sleeve, you will be on your way.

I'm happy the weather allows for jackets once again.

 

 

 

With boring brown penny loafers. Apologize for photo quality and also overly narrow lapels. Think it's probably okay tieless though.

I think you should give unstructured Neapolitan/inspired RTW jackets a try. They have enough room in the sleeves which you need, the shoulders are totally unpadded (the shoulder line in your tan jacket is lumpy probably due to sizing up) and they are short jackets with unfinished sleeves so sizing up shouldn't affect the jacket length on you.
These design elements in theory would work better for your physique.

Tagliatore
Boglioli
LBM/Luigi Bianci/Brando
Cantarelli
G.Abo
Tombolini
Gajola
Lardini
Piombo

You can pick them up on yoox for cheap.
An alternative would be to visit the London suitsupply store and try a couple of their unstructured jackets.
