That's like saying you are losing out on owning a Lexus because you are forced to drive a Pinto.

No, it's not.  It's like saying you're being forced to drive a Pinto, but because of that you can save up and now have the funds to buy a Lexus.  Not that being bald is equivalent to driving a Pinto.

Yeah I said it!


Agree with Thin White Duke. And while you're at it, I'd look at jackets with a much higher gorge—a more classic and flattering look.

That is indeed almost as city as light gray flannel can get, especially as there's no hank. Nice.

Never the top knot. I live near Silver Lake *shuddering* and the top knot is not an enviable look...

Everything else in that getup is the tits, though...perfection.

I only wish I could.

Agreed on all counts. Copying the trends of football (soccer) players is rarely a good idea. It was mullets in the eighties and nineties and it's top knots and sleeve tats now.

After a European sojourn, I am back. Because, as all children know, one must play with one's new toys no matter how seasonally inappropriate (today's suit is spring/summer - even for an El Nino winter, it's pushing it to wear it today), here's the majority of the swag scored on this last trip.

Suit - Ede & Ravenscroft - new
Shirt - Tyrwhitt
Tie - Paul Stuart
PS - Robert Talbott
Braces - Paul Stuart
Cufflinks - The Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace - new
Shoes - C & J, via Ede & Ravenscroft
Overcoat - Joseph Abboud
Scarf - New & Lingwood - new
Hat - Christy's, via Fortnum & Mason - new

Why so surprised? I never thought you dressed particularly poorly. My only complaint is that you have a tendency to be a bit foppish. Perhaps trying too hard with the "look at me" items (today's red socks and the shoes with the weird cut for instance). However, your clothes fit very well, seem to be of good quality, and you tend to look very good when you tone things down. The old adage "You probably look better than 99% of your peers" really does fit with you. In fact, you look better than a great deal of Style Forum as well.

 

Yes, there certainly is that tendency, @Caustic Man. It´s probably not the wish to be seen (as in "look at me, you slobbish fops") but rather to be a bit playful while still dressing like a proper grown-up. 

All in all, i appreciate your kind words.

Amazing @Claghorn - this inspired me to copy you.

My jacket (and trousers) are definitely brown.  They are brown and tan mini-hounsdtooth cotton from Brooks Brothers, as is the blue PPBD shirt.  The tie is from Tie Bar and is much wider in reality than the dimensions on the Tie Bar website.  It is so wide that it reminds me of the ties that Geoffrey Booza-Pitt wore. Squarextraordinaire pocket square,  Allen-Edmonds cognac Lombards, and somewhere under there are a tan alligator Trafalgar belt and tan Gold Toe argyle socks.


(Yes, cotton wrinkles easily, but it's early and it's already around 85F here today but it's February, so I can't go swanning around wearing seersucker or Madras.)

 

 

I´d never dress like you, @Roycru - but you stand testimony to the fact that it is essential to feel "at home" in what you wear. I really like what you do.

@TheoProf, as others have remarked before, i think a higher buttoning point would do you good. Additionally, this coat seems to be at least 20 years old, telling by the lapel styling. Nothing wrong with well-worn items that have aged beautifully over time, but i think this particular jacket looks a bit "outdated", given the lapel style and the very pronounced shoulders.

Good, but too many warm colors = overkill.

So here I go.

There do appear to be some fit issues. Aside from shirt sleeves being too long, those jackets don't sit well on your shoulders or around the neck. Big gaps.

Thanks Veremund, I needed informed and objective confirmation of what I think I knew deep down.

I thought I’d noticed some gaping and was questioning the fit; but when you like something, it can cloud your judgement. I appreciate your directness – you’ve helped me see that it’s time to let go.
