HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 2159

post #32371 of 43861

The third of four weeks of faculty candidate interviews. At least today's candidate made it easy by showing up in sneakers! You had better be Einstein's second coming, son.

Thanks for the tip, @Mannix. I was a little on the fence about the width of that tie--should have listened to gut.

 

As to Club Monaco, I find them to be kind of hit or miss--like J.Crew's moodier cousin--and a little more expensive. They have a great flagship store above Union Square and always let you stack a student discount (20%), so I can't really complain. I bought a Grant fit suit there on clearance, and it's fine, but I suspect it isn't very well made. They also always have those stupid working button holes, which drives me nuts when I need to get the sleeves of a jacket shortened.

@mannix and @amar very sharp. Sander I like the shoes but the burgundy socks, I'm not so sure with that great pinstripe suit. But what's the difference in an A++ and an A+

I'm a big fan of this suit--the basic tenets are very classic.

It might be possible to lower the waist and pinch the crotch to improve the balance, but I might have to resign myself to wearing the jacket as a separate. One of the reasons I took a chance on the suit was that the fabric works well for a sc as well. As for the length of the jacket it looks a little shorter in the last picture than it actually is, but it might be something that I have to look into. I have not lengthened the sleeves, but the previous owner might have.

You're welcome. I feel we're all obligated to share our proverbial two cents on a forum like this. You could definitely abandon the trousers and wear the jacket solo. Button stances can be tricky since you really can't alter them, as the bottom hem and hip pockets become out of sync. I have along torso so anything in today's world of fashion tends to be too high and looks awkward. For this reason, and a few others, I tend to by vintage Polo Ralph Lauren and Purple Label.

I used to shop at Club Monaco frequently while in college and then while living in Minneapolis. I'm not sure if we have one in Denver, but I'll have to look. I'd get sweaters and a few other casual items, but their trousers and jeans never fit me well. If you're interested in more knit ties (new, or worn once/twice) by PRL and Purple Label, I have a bunch that I don't wear and would definitely part with. PM me if you're interested.

Thank you, sir!

Missed a few days, cross post for the Friday challenge wearing a green jacket. Quite possibly the only day I may ever have to wear a cotton SC in February. Global warming or not, I am going to enjoy this one.

My humble entry, and with another green jacket that my usual Green Donegal :

Great suit, beautiful fabric and fit. Except, I would suggest shortening the pants a bit so that there is less break to give a cleaner drape and a more modern fit.

I used to wear my suit pants this long but have gone with a bit shorter length and it really make s a difference.

Some days, simple outfits are the best option.

Good afternoon everyone, had a few days off but back to work today. This is a new jacket, I love the fabric but I am concerned my tailor let the waist out a bit too much, it was slightly flaring in the back, which is now not the case, but I am concerned it is a tad too much in the other direction. Thoughts? Tried to get the best angles I could but only so much I can do with my phones timer and placing.

Fabric is rad! For what it's worth, i think the fit looks pretty good. Not too loose. You mind me asking what line BB that is?
