Brown on brown + black on brown =
Jacket buttons look wrong to me.
Actually navy on brown. I considered the black this morning, but I felt like I'd worn that a lot lately. I agree about the buttons, but haven't figured out what I want to replace them. Also, the jacket is essentially a blazer in brown instead of navy. Odd duck, yes.post #3723 of 108637/21/14 at 11:01pmQuote:Originally Posted by sugarbutch

navy on brown, my bad. I particularly like brown tonals. remember this? + navy/black knit toopost #3724 of 108637/22/14 at 12:10ampost #3725 of 108637/22/14 at 1:14ampost #3726 of 108637/22/14 at 1:22amQuote:Originally Posted by Claghorn
Doesn't this suggest that there is only a single combination that looks good, and anything other than that doesn't look good?
It also seems rather limiting. For example, I have a tattersall shirt that looks amazing with brown ties. Should I only ever wear it with brown ties?
As far as dressing for entertainment: you clearly have a lot of fun wearing what you wear. So I'd be highly skeptical if you claim entertainment isn't partially your motivation for dressing as you dress.
No, this is not what I meant. I never said that I dressed to always look my best. I often wear things I want to wear where other ones would have looked better, but they were too boring for me.Quote:Originally Posted by StanleyVanBuren

Nice fit, but the check on check clashes imo.Quote:Originally Posted by Monkeyface

Those epaulet jackets are MTM, right? If so, have you ever thought of getting slightly wider lapels, a lower buttoning point and a longer jacket? I think it would look much more flattering on you. Either way, the colours look great, but a lighter shade of grey trousers might look more summery, if that's what you're going for.
Seersucker check? Would love to see a better pic of this.post #3727 of 108637/22/14 at 2:50amThread StarterQuote:
Ah, I think there is a misunderstanding somewhere. Somewhere down the line, you seemed to suggest that in order to look good, one had to dress with optimality as their primary concern (if X looks better in a given context, one should always wear X, otherwise one will not look good).post #3728 of 108637/22/14 at 4:24ampost #3729 of 108637/22/14 at 4:33ampost #3730 of 108637/22/14 at 4:37ampost #3731 of 108637/22/14 at 5:25ampost #3732 of 108637/22/14 at 5:30amQuote:
I like when you dial it back a tad. You do this level better than some of your louder stuff ATM. I've found it easier to step into bolder patterns and styles once I've pulled together a good consistent sedate-ish look. With those same items. For example you can try swapping the tie and see what that adds or subtracts. You may begin to get a better feel for when you are "pushing it" too far.
Tighten your tie up!post #3733 of 108637/22/14 at 5:36am
I like the tie ETB. I almost like the fit, but think Navy is too dark for that tie. Braddock and Sander consistently pull off ties like that by reducing the overall contrast and embracing the s/s nature of those ties. RAF suit would be much better for it IMO. I won't comment on the shirt, but contrast collars are not my thing.post #3734 of 108637/22/14 at 5:51ampost #3735 of 108637/22/14 at 6:31amQuote:Originally Posted by The_Foxx
