I think a shirt with a more formal collar would have been a better choice with today's outfit.

J. Crew Factory jacket
Merona OCBD
Tie Bar tie
Thrifted cotton PS
Orient Bambino
Banana Republic trousers
Allen Edmonds Kenilworths

Thanks for the comment. About the lapel width : it really doesn't bother me, I love large lapels. You're right about the tie witdh but it's my unique green/blue tie, and I wanted to make the colours matching. Maybe it was a mistake.

I think it's an awesome blazer.

Exactly, that's why I no longer take the time to explain to people who don't know or don't care to know.

I probably would have gone a different way with the PS, but I love this @Andy57

Nothing wrong @Andy57 this is perfection. Parfait ! nod[1].gif

Some recent outfits from my instagram, when I wasn't on SF :








This one was for Saint Patrick's day : Ireland flag's colours. We organized a meeting for the parisian forumers of a french forum about elegance this day in an Irish pub.

It's new :)

 

I also thought the olive/cream parts of it might complement the tie without being too matchy. I'm a bit undecided myself. Thanks for the feedback, though!

I disagree with your premise that there is value in wearing something because it used to be worn that way, especially when the way it was worn is not as nice looking as it could be. But that is a matter of disagreeing over axioms.

What is better fodder for debate is the accuracy of your historical assessment that crowns on fedoras were regularly bowl shaped (pronounced widening as the crown ascends, such as the specimen warming your head) and came with abrupt dimples. There is no authority that can settle such a debate between two educated people, as you are reputed to be and I hold myself out to be, but my experience with historical photographs, film, and actual period fedora hats does not support your contention. One possibility is that you disagree with my assessment of your particular hat and hold that it does not bowl.

A mix of wayyyyyy too snug and a way too high button point, which makes the rather low rise of the trews even more apparent. 

 

No go in my book.

I really like that, SYC. Subtle but pleasing.

Gentlemen, you may well be right. I was all set to don a pair of brown shoes (see below) but opted at the last minute for black. Something about the blue/white/grey of the suit/shirt combo led me in that direction. Personally, I think either choice is acceptable but brown shoes may have been the better choice.

I'm not sure whether you are debating me or Tibor here. Perhaps both of us. I've seen Tibor's hat in many of his fits and in reality, I don't think it flares out at the top - that's probably a bit of lens distortion going on. Certainly though, it doesn't taper - the side walls are cylindrical.

 

Historically, many fedoras from the 30s and 40s taper, and others don't. The classic example of a high fedora with minimal taper is the "Indiana Jones" fedora which is of course a recreation. Akubra make a similar hat - apparently designed for one of their retailers by the same guy that designed the actual Indy hat. It's marketed as the "Federation IV" and I have one:

 


Yes, a little less extreme than Tibor's, but not far off. Oh... and look ... I'm wearing yesterday's suit with brown shoes!

 

Bottom line: Tibor's hat may not be entirely historically accurate, but it's heading in that direction; and most importantly: it rocks!
