And referring to the discussion on the sartorial knowledge of businessmen, a similar discussion on well dressed footballers would probably be very, very short. Who can forget this gem from Dele Alli...


I love mainline Ermenegildo Zegna and have many suits, sport coats, ties and such. I always laugh when I see their Zegna Sport line as only midfielders for Real Madrid seem to wear it. smile.gif

You can get away with pocket squares and the occasional odd jacket depending the schedule. Standard business suits dominate with only the quality changing as you move up. It's a uniform but you can seriously stand out if you make the effort to buy well made, well fitting clothes. Many take great pride in dressing well. Just not much sprezz.

I put on the Zegna, Oxxford and Canali for meetings with bigwigs and save the Eidos and sport coats for lighter days.

I totally disagree with this but it's Saturday night now so I can't refute it eloquently but next week I will dress like a lunatic and post a pic everyday. Until then I bid you gentlemen adieu.

Wall Street, and business in general, seems to play by very different rules than what we are accustomed to here. It seems to me that there are not very many business persons on SF for whatever reason, or at least that the regular advise givers are not in business. Maybe I'm wrong, we do have threads devoted to business wear and even abbreviations to denote conservative business dress, etc. How many of the people that follow these things are actually in business I don't know. I think we have mostly doctors, academics, lawyers, and some civil servants who post regularly and "make tastes" around here. Again, I could be wrong about this but it is a sense. In any case, most of the real world business people I know wouldn't be caught dead wearing a pocket square, nor would they wear an odd jacket to anything other than a costume party. This isn't because of any lack of interest in clothes, but rather because their culture expects other things, like Hermes ties. Anyway, it was 98 degrees here today and I spent too long outside in the sun at a local art fair, so I might be talking complete shit.

 

 

This is my impression as well. However, I work in IT, from home, and live in the American West where an interest in clothes is almost weird.

@justinkapur  .   I hate to be pedantic .. who am i kidding, pedantic's my middle name, and that ps should be angled t'other way-  Up towards the shoulder.  Otherwise, awsm.:) 

 

@Prince of Paisley  :D  I thought someone would bring that up.  In my original comment I was  paraphrasing someone else/s.  I liked your bar stripe shantung in purple and green etc  Those colors are a natural fit, as are red spectrum and greens.

A special weekend edition - my husband and I are attending the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor's Island today. Though today's rig isn't vintage (save for the watch chain and pocket square - both inherited), I think that there is more than enough of a vintage feel to today's attire to complement the afternoon's entertainment.

Suit - BB
Shirt - BB MTM
Tie - Turnbull & Asser
Vintage watch chain
Cufflinks - Longmire
PS - no name brand
Shoes - Carmina
Hat - Christy's, via Thomas Farthing, London

You don't know what you are talking about.  I work in investment banking in NYC and will wear SCs with spalla camicia shoulders several times this week without giving it a second of thought or have anyone notice or comment.  In general, your comments don't add to collective betterment of the the forum of the knowledge of its members.

WillingToLearn- I want to honestly thank you for your post and for what I believe to be your sincere willingness to learn, which I intend to reward shortly. I also want to thank you for taking on the responsibility of determining what is and isnt' beneficial to all of the other members of this forum, regardless of style preferences, etc. It is always nice to have someone who ins't afraid to speak for a large group that may or may not have very different opinions.

That being said, I need to make one small point. There is a photographic archive on this board that gives each poster the ability to evaluate the signal to noise ratio in another poster's posts. I have seen your photographic record and at this point you have yet to grasp the basics of fit and style. I don't mean this to insult you but rather to point out that it would not be surprising for me to hear that you aren't really grasping more difficult concepts or giving things a second thought. You are, in fact, a noob.

But willingness is the first step and so I'm with you.
