My missus, god bless her, let me have the walk-in which came with one hanging bar and the attendant wasted space from waist level to floor,'so I kitted all the cupboards out with Elfa which not only works well and is very robust but gives you the flexibility to change things around (as I have done) as your needs change and evolve. It's not cheap but it's well worth it IMO. Those Scandinavians raped and pillaged where I'm from and I believe passed on their genes to my family tree so maybe that explains my liking for their stuff!

Yeah, I was initially put off by the expense but am completely sold now. Have also moved mine around a few times!

Thank you for the kind feedback. @smittycl
 - out of curiosity, what is it about the pocket square that throws it off in your opinion?

I think that rather than compliment the other colors it draws all the attention to itself.

Didn't see the thread until now but I think you got some solid advice. It would have worked with the brighter green knitted tie as well but this was even better. Greens and browns are generally a great combination if you get it right, like you did here. Good idea for a thread btw,

That Draper's green is such a lovely fabric.  Looks good, @sebastian mcfox .

That is not an argument. Are you trying to be insulting? Because if so, I regret to inform you that you are simply coming off as thick. Another example of the stunning thickness I have discovered among SOME of the members here.

 

You are simply being reductionistic, which is terribly dull. You can take that careless and lazy attitude towards anything you don't like.

 

Prokofiev - You hear perfection, I just hear a bunch of notes. Monet - You see beauty, I just see a bunch of colors and squiggly lines. Luca - You see great postmodernist sculpture, I just see a bunch of marble.

 

You see how boring that is?

 

Good grief. If you are going to take the time to write, please also take the time to think.

 

That is all.

How do you know what I know or don't know about fashion and menswear? Do you know anything about how long I have frequented these forums or others?

 

Listen friendo, Ignorance is not something you should be going around broadcasting. And you if you want to contribute something of substance, be my guest. Enlighten me. Why am I wrong to suggest that outfit was fantastic?

 

Awaiting your surely feeble response.

Call me crazy, but it sounded like he was pointing out a difference of opinion, one I happen to share. Admittedly, it could be the angle/poss in the first pic, but it LOOKS mighty tight, and quite short in the sleeves.

In regards to those who write off your opinion based upon your lack of posts, you'll have to blame those who came before you.

You're crazy.... there :rotflmao:

 

And this is just an internet forum. I have just as much fun tearing people down as they presumably do attempting to be witty and insulting.

 

Incidentally, my primary gripe is that members have been responding to me mostly with ad hominem attacks, simple statements of oninion without reason, or simply bizarre one liners. I appreciate that you gave reasons for your opinion. So, points in my book.

I was reading through your post history, and it seems like you might have some intriguing points of view to share at times, but everything is lost in the delivery because you come across as a belligerent asshole and/or someone with an autism spectrum disorder. Believe it or not, emphasizing words in all caps is considered crude and will alienate you. Try using the underline or italics functions. Ending your posts with "You are dismissed" and "That is all" will also fail to amuse anyone.

 

In order to share your unique and original ideas, refer to the general structure and formatting of messages and emulate that. Like the suit as a system of rules, you'll find it's easier to get your unique concept across if the way you present it is fairly normal, with experimentation within that rubric.

 

The suit in question does not pass muster because of the shredded handkerchief and faux wood iPhone case.

Hm, It seems that you too might have some intriguing points of view to share, unfortunately, by calling me a belligerent asshole and someone who may possibly have an autism spectrum disorder, you ironically come across as a belligerent asshole or someone with an autism spectrum disorder. Insulting someone you don't know in this manner is very crude and will definitely alienate you.

 

Hypocrite. I sincerely hope you detect the irony.

 

Also, you may want to read the comments that others have made regarding my opinions. You will find that I do not insult anyone that has not done so to me first. Am I snarky? Sure. Why not. Adds to the fun. But I also write at length the reasons for my views, something which most of you seem to not do. For example, you just spent 2 paragraphs insulting me and only ONE on the outfit in question. Unfortunately typical around here.

 

I did not consider the iPhone case to be part of the outfit. And I lauded the choice of the handkerchief and gave a REASON why I did so.

 

Sigh* your one sentence statement regarding the outfit is a statement of opinion. No reason, no supporting statements. Utterly meaningless. We might as well argue about our favorite colors.

So, Mr. Psychologist (which you must be, and one of the greatest ones at that, since you have the uncanny ability to diagnose severe disorders via reading internet posts), care to try again?

 

YOU are dismissed.

I'm hoping it sticks around for a bit. The insights being shared there are pretty top notch.
