Is that the formosa / delfino ? 

 

 

Thanks, it's actually Suit Supply.  The Jort line that features some handwork and other upgrades....it's pretty nice.

Though the tendency (of some) to distinguish style from fashion has always seemed a little bit silly (@Tirailleur1 for an amen).

 

Given that you are a skinny guy, you should probably look into getting clothes which aren't so loose; both your shirt and your pants look voluminous on you.

If you insist on wearing a tie with jeans, a knit is the way to go. But in general, that isn't going to get much love around here.

Feedback is welcome, though I know the trousers have slipped down and look awful.

In case it isn't painfully obvious... I kinda like Eidos shog%5B1%5D.gif

I do wish the quarters on the jacket were slightly more closed (like the revamped NMWA cut), but it's not a dealbreaker for me.
The trousers are a lightweight cotton/wool and I kind of hate them (too slim, too low of a rise). I've recently ordered a pair of olive green trousers through Luxire to replace these ones. 

Jacket: Eidos
Shirt: Boglioli
Tie: Conrad Wu
Square: Vanda
Trousers: Club Monaco
Shoes: Skolyx 

The scales of the shirt and the jacket are too close together.
I would change that shirt to an light blue oxford cloth one.

Seconded. It's tough to get the scale of a stripe shirt right for a check jacket like that. Narrower stripes and softer colors would work better. Those stripes are too close in scale to the lines in the jacket; the saturated colors of the stripes make it harder for them to sit comfortably with the jacket.

This vzone combination is what I wore couple of days ago. Sorry for the iphone quality photo.



Thanks

When and where we are now … white crew neck tees peeking out from unbuttoned dress shirts is very, very uncool. That's it.

and Clags is right… there is a middle ground.

 

Have worn crewneck tees my whole life, not going to start wearing v-necks coz some random dude on the internet likes v necks. I like crew necks. I don't care what's cool now. That's fashion, not style. I'm telling you what informed my own style now when I was growing up. We never wore v necks. I never will.

Good.

Many posters here have a strong personal style that takes them out of orthodoxy and sometimes out of favor, so perhaps you should look to see how they do it. Off the top of my head EFV, An Acute Style, thefoxtooth, StanleyVanBuren, and Coxsackie come to mind. And if they dress too formally for you, and/or their choices dont work for your climate, perhaps someone like RegisDB9 would be a good inspiration.

 

So being inspired by someone on the internet is okay but being inspired by US male workers is not? riiiiight.

So $2000 belt, $400 pants and $700 shoes is entry level now?

I'd rather spend my money on quality basics that will last a lifetime instead of some of the try hard eccentric stuff I see on here.

With my last fit I feel like we're doing variations on a theme here. lol8[1].gif The closeup helps a lot, I don't think the square is out of place.

Quite the classic combination, I'd maybe change the tie to something lighter, like this it's very dark.

Price doesn't guarantee quality and quality doesn't guarantee good fit. As long as I agree we should buy investment pieces as it pays of in the long term, the most expensive and well crafted item will look bad if it doesn't fit the person wearing it.

So you're saying that Alden horse ass shoes, 100% wool Polo pants (made 10 years ago and are still flawless after as many summers and a couple of dry cleans every year) and a handcrafted saddle leather belt aren't quality? How don't they fit? I'm a 34 waist, my pants are size 34, the legs break on my perfectly fitted and rotated Aldens (feel like butter every time I wear) just enough. I admit my shirts sit a liiiitle bit off the shoulder but I like that, it's part of the aesthetic/lifestyle I like. Comfortable, relaxed, no bullshit and functional.

 

by the way the original poster called my gear "entry level". I was just asking how it's entry level? Do you think it's entry level?
