Oh, the feels. Lovely rig, @ComfortablyDumb - might have changed the pants, as the windowpane does not fit the jacket´s "pattern" as nicely as a houndstooth would have, imho.
I'm a fan so you wont get a lot of criticism from me. One thing that I think you do among the best in this forum is that you always look very comfortable in your clothes and the clothes look comfortable on you. That's a key to elegance in my mind.
This is one of the best fits of yours I've seen. A lot is going on but the muted colours combined with a great mix in textures keep it all together. Very nice. My only (small) caveat is the sweater (cant really see what it is from the pictures, is it a navy turtleneck?). I might have gone with something lighter, a winter white maybe.
Thanks, @DiplomaticTies - i can handle your explicity :-D
Fun aside, i really do enjoy wearing what i wear. There´s no point in dressing according to some rules (or SF consensus) when you just don´t feel them and would feel uncomfortable. I am aware that this doesn´t find anybody´s approval, but that´s just fine - i still feel like walking the "tasteful classic menswear" path, with the occassional slip into the banket...
As for your caveat - i wholeheartedly agree. Being a poor man, i don´t own a winter white / sand / beige colored turtleneck, which would have been the perfect choice. It would have blended it very nicely with all the browns and greys...alas...
@Dennis Walter if you really want to know what I think, I don't mind the lower contrast of the jacket and trousers, but I would have gone with a light blue OCBD and an appropriate tie. The dark turtleneck is incongruous with the low contrast of the rest of it. Smash that PS down a bit too. Not a fan of that shoe color in general, but you've used it well here.
My religion (and style bible) forbids to wear shirts on friday, @Caustic Man - i´d side with you any other day. PS was poppin too much, but unintentially. I am surprised to learn that you don´t condemn the shoes, but merely nod your head in what i would describe as a light form of approval :-)
As layed out before, the cream turtleneck would have been the perfect match. I tried navy, but didn´t like the shade with the jacket, @Sander.
Enough now, @Caustic Man.
And this is the outfit I am wearing for my last day at work.
It is a little heartbreaking to leave a great team that you hired yourself and had so much pleasure working with.
I might have celebrate a bit too much
Very nice, @SYCSYC - i think the jacket sleeves might be a bit too long and as it stands, your right arm is about a 1cm shorter than your left, so you´d need to get these altered differently. The color combo and that knit tie / cardigan / shoe combo is spot on.
