Thank you!


Hi,

What SuitSupply suit is that? I don't recall seeing this cut; fabric looks too "dressy" and lapels appears too wide to be Havana! 

Tie looks good, for sure!

I believe it's Jort. The cut is silar to Hudson in many ways, without patch pocket on chest, and with full canvas construction.

New around here, definitely don't know what I'm doing yet. Here's a crappy photo I took in terrible lighting for a friend. After sitting at the office I decided "what the heck." Looking forward to some critique from those who know better than myself! Cheers

Maybe widen the shot to show shoulders and jacket waist? I'm new to post pics as well. Shifting to outside light as well.

Just dressed to walk about town, in the nice weather
Shirt and pants by Hugo Boss

Welcome, and get prepared for some bashing :)

 

First of all, did you really come to see your girlfriend, showing at her job with a wedding-like outfit?

I hope you had a ring with you.

 

Then, you broke a rule: one shall never buttoned the lower button of his waistcoat...

 

 

That being said, it's nice that you come and show your fits.

And that's the main reason we make rules..in the end to break them.

Unless we talk about the buttoning of a suit jacket I don't really care.

Dude, that outfit is ridiculous. And not in a good way. In a clownish way. A funerial clown.

Hello and thank you for your remarks.

You seem to have a nietzschean aura surrounding you or I might be wrong.

@Mynjorn I will say this: at least the vest is in a RELATIVELY subdued color, making the tonal pattern a touch less POW! worthy. I still don't like it, and do find it to be rather costumey, but it could have gone much worse I think.

 

Note: please burn that tie...or use it for 50 Shades of Grey theme nights :fonz:

Guys... I think you are being too hard on @Mynjorn. Ok, so maybe he doesn't look like the standard SF CM snooze-fest, but at least he's being an individual! He has the daring to look different and to try something that most people wouldn't be caught dead in. True, the tie is sub-optimal. If I were him I'd have gone for a full leather tie like this...

That's a minor detail, however. The shirt collar being slightly too large gives him a relaxed casual appearance which tones down the formality of the rest of his fit. The couch fabric waistcoat shows how playfully he is reacting to tones and patterns, despite the rather muted color scheme. My favorite part is the overcoat. It has a boxy, avant garde, look which offers a nice contrast to the roundness of his head. Each element looks carefully chosen to create the appearance of a coherent whole. Remove any item and the look completely falls apart. Keep them all as they are and it is a symphony of creativity, restrained elegance, and playful sartorial mastery.

 

Honestly, "good taste" is boring and you all know it. He is quite right that rules are meant to be broken. I'd say not only broken, but trampled, spat upon, and dragged into some fast flowing river to be swept out to sea never to be seen again.
