Dammit, Eric, just once I'd like to see what happens when someone listens to everything everyone says.

It certainly does help! I am new to the world of men's fashion and will not deny it. I have been lurking here for a while (clearly not enough) and I take senior members' opinions very seriously.

I made a quick adjustment to the pocket square before my last meeting of the day since it was all I could do without going back to my hotel room, as seen in an updated (also potato) photo below. I actually thought it was the other way around, regarding formality of the pocket square.

I now realize that I should have posted closer and better lit photos of the shoes/fabrics considering how terrible the overall photo came out on my phone. Those are below as well.
I normally wear a pair of dark burgundy wing tips when I wear this shirt, but they are at the cobbler at the moment. I am a little heartbroken about your guys' opinion on the shirt. I did love this shirt. I had no idea that contrast collars were so douchey. frown.gif

The pants are not a suit separate, but the jacket is. I had no idea from when I bought the jacket until I posted here. I did some digging around to find out that it is from a 2 piece by Hugo Boss called the Grand Central 2. It was my first attempt at buying a sport coat and I clearly missed.

Are the shoulders and pockets something I could/should ask my tailor to modify? Or should I try to find the pants to complete the suit? I called some Hugo Boss stores as well as some outlets and it seems like finding the pants is going to be a tough one...

The hem didn't look right in the first photo, however, I am planning to take them up another 1/2" at least. Not too sure on a cuff yet, but there is enough material to do it.

The shoes are Bruno Magli Rammola. I bought them about 5 years ago to wear with a not-too-formal charcoal tuxedo, and I have definitely found it challenging to wear them with anything else.









I'll start showing my face once I start making less embarrassing dress decisions. shog%5B1%5D.gif

Only show your face if it's a really, really ridiculously good looking face.

But in all seriousness, don't be embarrassed. If you go back far enough for any member you'll find some rather regrettable choices. Especially Claghorn. Just keep at it. Like Sprout eloquently loquated, you've got the right attitude going in.

Pretty much...along with creating an acronym for everything damn thing.

I find this suit in a second hand yesterday, Frank Namani suit from the private collection for only 50$ :

@Tux Stain don't be so hard on yourself. Your fit is not all bad but I have to agree with the Seniors. We all have differing opinions, but one consistent footprint that I like is that these guys really bring the fashion and swagger. Choose your muse and steadily build your own voice. You have awesome potential. And if that plaid shirt truly exemplifies you; own it!

End of a long day. Bad light. Attempted escape by pocket square.

At the moment the pictures are taken by a photographer who works full time in my company and indeed she specializes in "fashion" and marketing photography of bespoke clothing. You can see much more of her work, with and without me in the picture, here. We have been working together for a year now. I am very flattered when you say that you like the pictures because I feel that I have very limited capability to look good in pics so we work really hard to get an effect that is barely acceptable in the light of the amount of work that is put in my clothes and the incredible pictures of some bespke cats out there (also in here) at SF). Among others that is due to my sport past that gave me uncommon body proportions (but on the other hand it also pushed me towards tailoring).

But we believe that hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard :D :D :D And it works, here is a proof :D

The trousers are top! Also it is now clearly visible that Harris Tweed beats "bling-bling clothes" - you are much better dressed than the other guy ;)

Though it's only Wednesday, the Friday Challenge is "herringbone". Today's attire is a double dose of the fabric - both suit and topcoat, though both are the most subtle of herringbone patterns - it is too warm for me to have broken out my heavy brown herringbone overcoat, which is a much bolder pattern.

Suit - New & Lingwood
Shirt - Tyrwhitt
Tie - BB
PS - Ashear
Braces - Paul Stuart
Cufflinks - London Badge & Button Co.
Shoes - Paul Stuart house brand
Topcoat - JAB
Scarf - Turnbull & Asser
Hat - Selentino, via JJ Hat Center, NYC

@Tux Stain I thought your contrast collar shirt was fine, but I wouldn't rock it with that suit. Rock it with some dark beige corduroys or something brown and textured (herringbone wool pants maybe), and cordovan color boots or wingtips. All earthy tones I think would look interesting, and then the white collar would be the offset highlight (similar to what a pocket square does to a blazer). If you like it don't trash it, just figure out ways to put it in another outfit. Good luck!

SC: Canali
Shirt: Rayner & Sturges

@DiplomaticTies Best seasonal outfit I've seen in pages. I love the blazer + tie color combo, as well as the boots and coat pairing to round everything together.

"This hats suits you very well Crusty, and folds naturally into today's outfit without looking overly conspicuous.

I wonder if your interest in matters sartorial and acquisition of menswear stuff happened a bit later in life for you or was it something you've been into since you were a young lad?"

To answer the question, my (nearly obsessive) interest in clothing has been a fact of life since I was a stripling, though it seems that I've only gotten good at it (within the parameters of my rather idiosyncratic style) in the last few years.
