I don't know where you get your inspiration from, but you honestly never fail to impress!

The "Australian Members" thread is very active and has many highly accomplished dressers, many of whom rarely if ever post on WAYWRN. You, sir, are one of the very best.

 

I single you out for a specific reason today. @Caustic Man had some very kind words for me yesterday. Interestingly, he pointed out what I already know myself. My own dress sense is unorthodox, to say the least. To some extent I guess this is intentional, but it's also something I just can't help. I really have to force myself to conform - not just in what I wear, but in every aspect of my life.

 

(I have no idea where this comes from, as the rest of my family were pretty conservative and I went to a boring, middle-class school which specialises in producing accountants, conveyancing solicitors and family physicians. There's nothing about my background or upbringing to have influenced me this way - it seems I'm just a born eccentric.)

 

Which brings me to a point raised by Caustic. He cites preppy/Ivy influences in his own dress sense. SF has a number of other American members who adhere to a similar style (@Roycru is a good example, but there are many). Then we have the British cohort - @Cleav springs to mind; @upr_crust wears mainly American clothes but manages to give them a British twist. Call him Transatlantic. I could also cite some European members whose style is subtly different again, but also well-grounded in regional tradition: @EFV , @Tom Miler , @VictorSFreturn and so forth.

 

Australia really has no developed style of its own. Our sartorial fashions have always followed those of Britain and to a lesser extent the USA, with a six month delay (representing both our opposite seasons and the physical distance creating long shipping times). What this means is that in Australia, we are each free to develop our own style. Look at some great Aussie dressers - @Spandexter , @Gerry Nelson , @Pliny - and you'll see a range of completely different sartorial styles with little common ground.

 

It's also worth pointing out that most parts of Australia are pretty hot for most of the year. You do see a lot of men wearing suits, ties and jackets in the financial centres of Sydney and Melbourne, but everywhere else, it's short-sleeved shirts at best; tee-shirts and flip-flops are everywhere. Men who dress well are viewed with deep suspicion by many. You can easily walk around for a whole day here without seeing a single person who both (a) has a clue and (b) has made an effort.

Nope, navy is perfect.

I don't mind the navy, but I agree with @Spandexter Everything else is light and airy.  The navy is almost black.  It adds contrast, but I think a lighter color would be more cohesive.

^ The navy is fine, but I think green or a bright brown (like a summer rust--I know it's summer where you are) would have been more coherent with the rest of the color palette.

A flannel kind of day in NYC...

I have a substantial amount of ties from Vanda (lived in Singapore for a while and visited their workshop too) but that one is probably my favourite. Almost luminous quality to the rusty grenadine. I use it a lot.

Fair enough.

...and after 30 seconds of Googling: http://blogs.indiewire.com/theplaylist/lost-ending-to-stanley-kubricks-the-shining-revealed-20130124 

 

Okay, enough amateur detective work for me. Back to work.

 

Cheers!

That's very kind of you, thanks. Honestly, all of my inspiration comes from many of the fine gentlemen on this forum and in this thread. I really enjoy checking in on a daily basis.

@dt I wish the pattern on the square wasn't so similar in scale

@cd I like everything, but the pants appear too tight.

This jacket and tie were meant for each other. Very sharp!
