Still seasonably cold in NYC, and I find myself needing to cross the river this evening (a business social gathering in Jersey City), hence a flat cap instead of a proper hat (don't know the coat check situation at this evening's venue), and a simpler get-up than I wore yesterday (don't know what might overly excite the natives on the PATH train later this evening . . .)

Tom Miler, today's choice of shirt is for you, as we had discussed eyelet collar shirts previously. Enjoy!

Suit - New & Lingwood
Shirt - BB MTM
Tie - Hackett, London
Cufflinks - Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design
Braces - Paul Stuart
Shoes - Septieme Largeur, Paris
Overcoat - BB
Scarf - Hilditch & Key
Cap - Stetson, vian JJ Hat Center, NYC

I really like the flat cap, @upr_crust and the collar pin. I had one like that and misplaced it and it irritates me still, even though I never pin my collar.

Happy Thursday, gentlemen. I'm not a huge fan of this sport coat, as the lapels are too narrow and it's not my usual full(er) cut PRL, so it's usually relegated to weekend wear.

Another attempt. I appreciate the feedback on the previous fit. I can see what you are saying when it comes to the NFL-look. I usually prefer windsor etc for the symmetry, not because its necessarily wide. Would a nicky knot or prat knot be more "SF approved", as well as it accommodates my need for symmetrical knots? I also realize that the shorter blazer and SC are not "SF approved", but its usually what I tend to use, but my suit jackets are "in line" with the more commonly displayed styles here. 

 

 

 

 

On a side note, I really enjoy alot of the fits here, especially the way you guys utilize patterns, be it dots, stripes or similar. I struggle to find patterns in ties and PS that I like.

I periodically have had shirts made with eyelet collars so that I can wear my collar pins. (One of them came from Brooks Bros. within the last couple of years, so you may yet be able to replace your lost collar pin without too much effort - Paul Stuart has had them recently as well.)

@justinkapur That is some serious pattern interplay mastery. Very nice.

@Haaviz What brand is your shirt and your jacket? Both look very fashion-forward. The collar points on the shirt need to be ironed (or perhaps the fusing isn't very good) and you would benefit from the points also being longer. Most users on here aim to have their collar points tuck under their jacket lapels, and I am no different. I'd investigate different shirt brands, Charles Tyrwhitt (sp?) has a nice spread collar for a very affordable price point (they're always on sale). I like Proper Cloth, but that's MTM.

If your jacket was longer, it would flatter your build much better, but it's really difficult to find affordable jackets that are slim and not chopped in the tail. I don't have much advice on this front, I wear SuSu and it barely covers my backside, so I'm making the move to MTM here as well.

Symmetry in a tie knot is pretty bland IMHO, but I used a Pratt knot back before I knew better and that was always pretty symmetrical without being bulky.

That's just my .02, I'm sure a more experienced member will have more detailed advice for you.

@CaptainTohm  My shirt is a Michael Kors. I do not particularly like it myself, would like longer collar points, but it was a gift from my gf. I try to incorporate other shirt colors than white and blues that dominate my wardrobe as well. My jacket is some sort of Danish brand, name escapes me. That shirt brand looks very promising, I usually wear Eton shirts. When it comes to jackets, bar suit jackets, you're right, its hard to come by longer ones. I actually just found one and left it at my tailor today for adjustments, so I look forward to see if I will appreciate that look. Thanks for the advice! I live in Norway and there are a lack of variety in shirt brands if you want something that's not Ralph Lauren, Boss, Gant or similar. I tend to find better fitting and good looking shirts when I travel to London. 

 

I may have to keep on investigating and use the four in hand more and see if i may be "converted".

Sounds like you have the right idea! I personally just try to dress more and more like @Claghorn every day.

The main benefit of high armholes? Maximum range of movement for coffee drinking! I'm sure that's exactly what Scholte had in mind originally. 

 

 

 

This is my suit by Steven Hitchcock. Not perfect mind you - after wearing it for a good few months you soon figure out where certain nips and tucks are needed. In this case I've left it a little later than I would have liked, but that's life. That being said, going down to London to visit Steven and Celia is certainly never a chore - they're lovely people.

I have the same tie and I like it a lot. But, somehow, Colin Jost wearing it. Every. Single. Time on Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update has put a dent in its appeal for me. Shallow, I know.

If I may offer some constructive criticism, I would definitely consider a wider trouser leg in future to keep everything in proportion. Then this would look spot on. I'm not talking about an ultra wide leg, but a slightly less severe taper would keep the lines of the jacket flowing really nicely. :slayer:
