HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 1664

post #24946 of 43873

they look nice but not comfy at all actually, and I'm also a afraid they'll break every time I sit on them. (I weigh 110 kg :D)

I stand by my advice and I think it would have elevated your fit as evidenced by my photoshop attempts. You are free to disregard these suggestions (at your own peril IMO).

 

Also, I'm beginning to think a thread entirely of photoshopped fit suggestions might be interesting. Reindeer games indeed...

This actually already happened...

Charles Tyrwhitt has them from time to time, and does Ralph Lauren.

 

I wonder if anyone has tried Luxire for a tab collar.

 

Cheers,

Are the tab collars that Suitsupply offers not up to snuff?

Had to replace my shirt and tie at a thrift store after lunch due to a ketchup incident, but I did my best to recreate what I walked out the door in. I think the chest on this jacket needs to be brought in just a tad more.

Have you ever been to a Sydney Tarts meat?

 

It's the completely unlined cuffs (and collar), I reckon, which makes the Pam look larger than life - because the cuff just leans against it.

 

I haven't been to a Tarts meet (meat?) - just met one of the founders.

That's interesting. I'm one of the founders.

 

Or you might have met Chris, or Tom, or John, or Rene, or Gary... a few others have joined a little more recently. And we've lost a few along the way too.

I haven't been around here as long as most of you, is this really a rule? I wear spreads/cutaways with sport coats all the time and think it looks fine.

 

 

Yes, a cutaway is more formal.  Wearing one with an SC is a bit of a faux pas

Gary. We make it a point to catch up whenever we're in the same city at the same time.

I think Clags would politely disagree. But then he is a bit of a renegade.

Thanks. I'd wanted a flannel suit for ages before I found this. I bought it in the heat of summer in anticipation of winter :) It's funny you say that about the shoes - it was a choice between the cap toes and a pair of brogues - today, the cap toes won but it might be a different story next time.

Thanks! They're made by Carmina on the Inca last and are actually dark brown but I didn't colour correct the photo properly. I'll see if I can when I get home today. The shoe colour in the full length photo is more accurate.

Jesus. How tall are you? You don't look 110kg if you're a normal height.

I wear spreads rather than cutaways. But if I owned a proper cutaway, I'd happily wear it with odd jackets that aren't super casual, like a navy blazer. People would gripe, I'd shrug.

 

On the other hand, I am think of getting button downs next time I get something in oxford cloth. Some variety in shirts might be nice.

Cool! Gary always makes a point of being too busy to catch up when we're in the same city at the same time.

 

Maybe I need to change my brand of deodorant.

 

PM me if you're interested in meeting the full group. Every Thursday evening in the CBD, but we don't broadcast the location.

He's made it his sprezz and I'm getting used to it FWIW

Clags is so good at everything else, and so immaculately presented that imo he gets away with it.

New Henry Carter. I almost went with the brown and blue version of this. Certainly a color combination I'm more comfortable with (I don't often work with reds outside of a neat context).

That's damn good, Clags.  Suit or odd jacket?  Color is olive or more brown?
