HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 2765

post #41461 of 43965

The trousers of the day originate from when I was 15-16 cm (6 inches) wider. That has changed the proportions - I believe. Think I'll let my tailor have a (second) look at them.

Nope.

Of course there’s room for personal preference.  But I note that the trouser doesn’t begin to cover the traditional 2/3 of the shoe.  That’s only an initial guideline, of course, and will need to be adjusted if the person has feet that are disproportionately large or small relative to his height.

 

If these were mine and I really wanted to tweak them a bit I would (1):  lengthen them just a tad (they seem to be hovering above the shoe a bit more than I like (this is clearest in the right leg in the photo); and (2) I’d get a military hem (so that the back is longer by ca. 5/8” than the front).

 

Out of curiosity, do you happen to know the weight of the cloth?

 

Cheers,

Roy, something just seems a tad "off" with these, which may be a result of angles. The only part that looks too full to my eye is the mid shin area. Everything else looks just fine to me.

I'd also recommend increasing length just a touch, and perhaps slimming the middle portion of the lower leg.

@blekit that might be my favourite outfit you've posted. Colour combination is excellent and the fit of the suit is spot-on.

 

@Stilig can we see some more detailed shots of the shoes? The idea of darkening suede intrigues me and those look lovely.

 

@upr_crust absolutely tremendous suit, crusty. The colours and the way your outfit is coordinated suits your style flawlessly, imo.

Today, right after work. I actually decided to use method of @Roycru , and ask someone passing by to take photo (in this case happened to be a cleaning lady of the respective facility). To try to continue in the same spirit - when I say facility some of you might ask: "What do you mean, this takes place on the street, in front of some nice old building...". Well, no. Building is placed inside of what is called a "Brookfield Place", a business/office centre in downtown Toronto. Building was originally build somewhere in mid 19th century by a bank (name escapes me, as it doesn't exist today), and is now owned by the other bank. Now, not only is the building placed inside of a larger and closed steel and glass structure, it was also moved brick-by-brick from it's original place, few hundred meters north. Only in North America... 

As for my "ensamble", it's not only Friday, it's Friday before the long weekend, so enjoy!

I have to say it: that jacket looks much too small on you. It pulls badly across your chest, the buttoning point is too high, and it is too short.

If you really have to, be my guest... smile.gif
Thanks for the comment. It doesn't feel small, in fact is crazily comfortable, and I like the short + high buttoning look in the casual context.

I saw @gs77 probably right before or after that picture. The jacket looked good to me.

i think the length may be a bit overstated, it doesn't look THAT short to me. Probably a bit, but not egregiously so.

Egregiously tight though. Based upon the pic, it looks as though sudden movement would cause it to split at the seams.

Haha, I forgot to mention that trivia - StyFo dudes working in the same building and bumping into each - recognizing each other by the above average quality footwear (not that it's too hard in Toronto).

Good to see you, and we're getting beer next time!

Thanks. It wont split. It is an interesting jacket, mix of linen and wool with a bit of elastan.

I come at my jackets from the opposite corner to Andy: I wear almost exclusively 'hard three' button jackets and have a few that would qualify as bumfreezers, but that said I agree with his comments. It's not flattering on you and you have the 'turkey triangle' going on to boot - that opening beneath the buttoning point exposing your shirt. A jacket with a lower buttoning point, longer lapels, more room in the chest-waist and no shirt exposure would be a vast improvement.
