HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 2518

post #37756 of 43885
Last night's event at KnotStandard was lively, to say the least - a DJ, waiters serving hors d'oeuvres (of a vegetarian nature - quinoa sliders and vegetarian sushi-like creations), a crush of people, most of them young enough to be my spawn (a condition that increases with every day), and a bar with only one beleaguered barman (rather unequal to the task of keeping the masses well-lubricated). The showroom was nicely designed, and all that it should be - well-lit, airy, and decorated with large photos of models in menswear. There were some sample garments to be seen - jackets, suits, and shoes - but very little else, save for masses of fabric swatch books.

My colleague's son did his duty with enthusiasm, describing in general terms the philosophy of the company, and he did reveal the price range - suits from $795 to $2795, depending on fabric, and that they worked with Vitale Barberis Canonico, Dormeuil, Holland & Sherry and Zegna. He stated that all the suits, regardless of price, are fully canvassed.

He also said that one of the techniques which they use to promote their wares is the making of shirts - he promised me a free shirt (which is definitely bringing coals to Newcastle, but a nice sentiment, in any case). We shall see.

Today is another day, and with the weather warming and brightening, a spring/summer suit out of storage.

Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
Shirt - BB
Tie - Drake's, via the Armoury, NYC
Braces - Paul Stuart
PS - no name brand
Shoes - C & J

@Gerry Nelson, I've said it before and I'll say it again; I love this suit! Although I am not sure I am fond of the vest paired with it. Both are nice in their own way but I do not think they blend in together well, color wise (I get that it's congruent though, being two heavy F/W items). My 2 cents!

I don't care for either the shirt or the tie in this fit (but so what?)...however the jacket and waistcoat are very nice. But do button that lower button on your waistcoat. Double-breasted waistcoats are exempt from the "don't button the lowest button" thing.

@Mr. Six awesome look. Which Formosa is this?

How many of you guys have a repository of "inspiration" fits?

 

I ask because I am thinking of starting a series of "exemplar" threads, as in "Exemplar: Double breasted odd jacket" and then post a maximum of five exemplars of this and asking others to do the same.

I like the beard.
