HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 1768

post #26506 of 44037

@upr_crust and @Veremund Congrats!  @Koala-T post bigger/crop your pictures.  I can't really see your outfits most days.

 

Fall colors, summer fabrics, ivy style.  I converted this sack jacket to a hard 3.  I think it looks better this way given the wide lapels.  I may have the waist taken in some.  What do you guys think?

K-T,

Ever considered different eyewear options? I'm always distracted by yours which don't seem very complimentary to your facial structure or fair complexion, though I'm unsure what to suggest as an alternative. Perhaps someone with more knowledge in these matters can chime in?

Nice closeup of colors and textures.

The change to the Austin skyline since I left there is disorienting.

AAS, I don't love the hard three config. What's it look like as a 3-roll-2?

You're one of the best picture posters here. Glad you've come back. The sack you're converting, did you do that with an iron, or simply by buttoning the top button? The idea might work (I like a high buttoning coat) if the collar on yours wasn't so damn big. It's cotton, right? If you've not much money in it, you might consider having the collar and lapels narrowed. If you make soap marks where you want the new collar and lapel to end, a low level tailor/alterationist should be able to fix you up. (I have done this with wool and had to do it by hand, but with your cotton jacket a machine can do most of the work.0 If you really like the jacket, consider having darts sewn in.

I'll see what I can do about that, Style. And that's a gorgeous jacket. Is the tie a gren fina or something else?

Actually what I've been thinking of most lately is getting Lasik, but you are right, it probably is time for a new pair of glasses. Might get a few pair sent to me from Warby and see what you guys think.

it's changed drastically just since I moved here 7 years ago (which may be right around the same time you left, though I'm sure the two events are unrelated). But yeah, more condo buildings go up downtown every year. When I got here, the 1 bedroom downtown condos were going for around $2-$300K. Now you can't get one for less than a million.

Thanks.  I'll endeavor to do my best, but it's not up to me--this is one of the few times of late that my better half has been able and willing to assist with the photography.  I'll pass along your endorsement of her work and lobby for more.  

 

You could also get a cheap tripod if that doesn't work out.

+1. Would like to see a photo for comparison, but I think I prefer the original configuration.

I agree. It throws the whole top to bottom balance of the jacket off, which maybe is what is making you want to take the waist in.

Thanks for the kind words.  I just ironed it.  I don't think I can have the lapels slimmed because of the lapel button hole though.

Shirt and jacket sleeves look too short.

Our symphony is pretty conservative but good. Today was the season opener, and they had a guest pianist for the Beethoven concerto who played a turkish piece by Fazil Say that was gorgeous (but I think it ruffled a few feathers in the 80+ years black tie crowd). I can't remember the name of the piece off the top of my head but it required him to mute strings on the piano as he played.
