HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 2286

post #34276 of 43974
Friend challenged me to try and make grey tie and grey trousers work. I open it up to opinion, I think it does, aided by the texture variance. Albeit a bit boring. Navy cashmere SC, light blue end on end, hopsack-ish tie, charcoal flannels, black cap toes.

Also goes against a foo-ism that there is always a better choice than charcoal trousers. I think charcoal works best here, but I'll let others more knowledgeable tell me otherwise and why.

Loud socks are meant for colorful casual outfits. If they are ever useful at all! 

Thanks for the thumbs and compliments. I also hear where you're coming from about the socks being a little too much.

 

And @Murlsquirl , if I had a dollar for every time I hear that I look like Forest Whitaker although I don't see it myself but oh well.

There is a resemblance, but you don't like look his twin or anything.  Sorry for bringing it up if you hear it all the time....I'll send you a dollar :)

Not a fan of “fun” socks but I actually think they work quite well here. It helps that they are solid. The sock color goes well with the blue pants and the shoes. Looks great!

But, why so sad?

For those keeping score on my cultural adventures so far this week, the Van Dyke show at the Frick is sensational.

The weather is to turn quite warm today in NYC, so I've opted for a very spring-weight suit.

Suit - Paul Stuart
Shirt - BB
Tie - Paul Stuart
Braces - New & Lingwood
PS - no name brand
Cufflinks - The Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace
Shoes - BB Peals

@Dennis Walter today your tie is looking good, mate, I like everything but the waiscoat... seems too low, doesn't  it? I am a fan of odd vests and you seem to have a great collection by the way.

Quick question, I am looking for a nice duffle coat for next year but so far no luck, where is yours from? Is the orange lining as loud as I perceive it on my computer? Lately my computer is doing funny stuffs and pictures look odd sometimes.

I really couldn't help having this salmon shirt made :D Would you even wear something like this? It was hanging in my closet for a couple of months before I finally matched it with this suit and tie.

 

 

 

I have to tell you that I am very happy about the effect I achieved by matching the fur collar to my beard :D :D :D 

 

And that's the combo showing the lapels that are on the wider side (12,5 cm). As you can see that's no problem for my pocket square :D 

 

 

And some more salmon shirt :D :D :D

Hey @Chulillo, thanks. The waistcoat is lower than what you would be used to, but i still like it. I am trying out different styles now and then, and yep, my collection has grown considerably over the past. 

Mine is from a german retail brand, no big house name. I recommend to go for a Gloverall, if you have the chance to. The orange lining is very prominent, which is why i hardly wear it anymore...but sometimes it just blends well with the rest, so there is that...

Tom Miller, always impressed by how you combined color, and I really love the fact that you love tweed and hard fabrics, it's really an hymn for autumn and winter.

 

A new pocket square for me :

Thanks for all the thumbs last night. This is turning into my favorite jacket fabric. Could this be worn in the spring? Any suggestions on shirt/tie/square pairings? Would appreciate it! Sorry it doesn't show up well in the picture but the shirt is glen plaid pattern subtle.
-Cheers.
