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

Thank you sir for your comments.As for the burning I will leave that to Veremund ,he comes from a place where burning has it's own special meaning.

@Mynjorn, pointing this out might be a bit useless, but i´d still give it a try: you´ve come to a place where guys are used to see other guys dressing up like adults, in a more or less conservative way. That´s what people around like and appreciate. This is not to say that everyone should dress in grey suits and white shirts - browsing the last few pages will give you a better impression of how far the concepts of "conservative dress" can range. 

 

What folks in here really don´t appreciate is someone coming to the party, trying to defy well meant and sound advice by telling off the hosts and hoping to find love for that kind of behaviour. 

 

You are entitled to do whatever you want and to dress however you like - just don´t expect folks to applaud,when it is clear as daylight that your understanding of "individuality of dress" and theirs (or mine, at that) is universes apart.

I'll say he's taking it in a far more tasteful manner than the poster formerly known as @Forper lol...

I'm curious to know if these creations would be tolerable around here.

Ps:Not the greatest at doing selfies.My apologies.

A very old world look. I really like it. I couldn't pull that off in my stuffy workplace, though!

 

Dear SF brethren - I lived in Europe for three years. Outfit looks very traditional and interesting. Nice see some off-the-beaten path style.

From time to time there are comments about the "Security Guard" look (almost anything involving a blue blazer) and from time to time members (often new members) ask about how to take pictures.  Some people wearing the "Security Guard" look actually are Security Guards and you can always ask one of them to take your picture (like this picture).  The only thing is try to avoid doing it around 7:00am, when the lobby is still being cleaned and there are power cords showing in the picture.

Brooks Brothers jacket and tie, L L Bean OCBD shirt, Ralph Lauren Rugby pocket square, Trafalgar alligator belt (from before the tree huggers got hyper about saving the alligators), J Crew embroidered cord trousers, and Allen-Edmonds brown grain Kiowas.

This is the first picture that I have posted with my new eyeglass frames.  The new frames are black, rather than tortoise like my old
frames, because I though that black frames would look better with grey hair.  My hair is turning grey, probably because I am 69 years old.

Yes, the new frames do look like Harry Potter's frames.  I was hoping that the new frames would make it possible for me to make people who make bizarre comments about the pictures that other people have posted disappear or turn into frogs, but so far I haven't been able to, but who knows what the future will bring.

I've seen the "thinking pattern" from the first two posts.I respect each owns right to express himself and not to like "the not so conservative" I like to embrace myself,I however have a big problem with the form in which an individual expresses himself regarding this .

And if I were to defy them,well I took my risk of being bashed or whatever.

I'm glad that you took the time to elaborate rather than being blunt about an outfit.

One profession does not exclude the possibility of the other - one needs a money gig, even if one is the Phantom of the Opera.

More seriously, it would be very difficult to wear a waistcoat such as the OP has worn outside of the context of a formal occasion or a wedding. I will state that the necktie is very much not to my taste, but, then agan, I'm not wearing it.

From earlier this week.

X-post from the challenge:

 

Okay, so file this under, "If at first you don't succeed..." I'm submitting an amended draft of my submission for the challenge after getting some helpful feedback from some of you and also realizing that some assumed my blazer/sport coat to be a worsted wool suit jacket. It is actually a cotton linen blend with horn buttons. 

 

Other changes:

1. I added laces. I believe that it is a better look in this instance though going laceless is not wrong for these shoes. See the following link: http://www.sperry.com/en/striper-cvo-salt-washed-twill-sneaker/11003M.html?dwvar_11003M_color=1048032#cgid=men-shoes-casual&start=1

2. The madras tie blends well with the nantucket red chinos

3. I added a square.

4. I switched from an OCBD to a pinpoint oxford

 

Brooks Brothers Fitzgerald fit navy blazer (cotton/linen blend)

Kamakura pinpoint bd

Vintage Andover Shop tie

Tie Bar square

Allen Edmonds belt

Sperrry Striper CVO shoes

Fantastic as always, and please do not fret about the grey hair. You have more hair than I do and I'm 33 years old.  I prefer to shave my head anyways.

 

Security guards around here (Nebraska) usually look similar to Police, but without guns.  Your comments on the "Security Guard" look are hilarious.
