HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 1745

post #26161 of 43967

Thanks always to everyone who takes the time and trouble to post pictures of themselves and to everyone who likes my pictures.

I went to Santa Barbara CA today although it was the hottest day of the year (so far) today.

Here's a picture getting on the train in Los Angeles wearing a Brooks Brothers blue blazer, blue PPBD shirt, and BB#1 repp tie, Jim Thompson pocket square, Leather Man blue and tan surcingle belt, Orvis trousers with my Hamilton 992B Railway Special pocket watch in the watch pocket, Gold Toe argyle socks, Allen-Edmonds tan suede Strandmoks, and my Santa Fe Railway employe enamel lapel pin, which I always wear when I am on the train......


......while I was in Santa Barbara, I went to the Reagan Ranch Center, which is near the Santa Barbara depot.  I saw all the exhibits and sat on a very deep leather sofa.

For sure. I like all the pattern/color/texture elements... if you only look at the top pics. Bummer because when I got it I had always wanted a suit like it. I think if I ever get a linen suit made it would need to be a darker color, though; brown/tobacco maybe.

Oh well, the learning process is long and full of terrors.

Still carrying a chip on your shoulder, Rudals?

I'm guessing the shoulder chip was 2 cm narrower than expected and then tailored before an attempt at a return...   :stirpot:

And too narrow shoulders may give a pear-like appearance, to be sure.

A bit more positive contribution to the thread. A random lifestyle pic from Wednesday.

Bresciani you are right.

The monsoon has passed in NYC, so it's back to proper work clothes.

Suit - JAB Joseph
Shirt - BB MTM
Tie - vintage Ferragamo
Cufflinks - BB
PS - Ashear
Shoes - Bergdorf Goodman house brand

One of the joys of getting older is that when you need to find some vintage clothing, you need not shop for it - all you need do is open your closet door, and hope that you hadn't donated it to charity previously.

"Lifestyle" photo - garden of the Barbara Hepworth Museum, St. Ives, Cornwall - no food in sight, and a less cranky expression than yesterday's photo.

I like the way @Pliny just wanders in to the middle of the thread and kills everyone dead with a monster fit.
