Yeah but not with the blue shirt, though.

All in good fun.

 

To make my point, the white shirt makes the bright tie look even brighter. Yellow ties are challenging as it is and usually require something to soften their appearance. A blue shirt often does the trick and would in this case as well. As it stands, white and yellow together makes a jarring combination. But just to be clear, I like your fit regardless.

If I may offer an observation that probably crosses a line, you're much too young, lean, and tall to allow this jacket to do the disservice it's doing to you. It simply looks old rather than charming in a vintage sort of way. There must be a way to simulate the Ivy League look that you seem to enjoy without it looking like you're wearing other people's clothing, some of whom are quite likely long since expired.

Recent posts by Brovsko and SprezzaTrash provide examples of younger men who wear clothes that fit well, one a contemporary look and the other vintage. Brovsko's jacket is similar in color to yours and Sprezza's is well-fitting vintage. It may be a matter of ensuring the fit is excellent and that things look vintage rather than simply old.

It doesn't cross a line at all. Thanks for the feedback. It's nice to be referred to as "young, lean, and tall". I'm long overdue for a trip to the tailor. Personally, I like this jacket a lot, but the fit is far from ideal.

From the clothes to the haircut to the glasses, I think Theo enjoys dressing vintage and/or emulating an old man's style, whichever is your perspective. The only thing is, when he becomes an old man he may look back on these golden moments of his youth and wish he'd been a bit more whacky and adventurous.
Or not. The theology professors I've known myself never struck me as the kind of fellas who lived on the edge.

@Andy57 how about a cream or off-white shirt?

I meant to thank you for your feedback the other day regarding the vertical folds in some of my trousers. Maybe I will regret not being more whacky or adventurous, but I've found a style that I like and feel I've begun adding my own distinctive aesthetic sense to it. That said, a trip to the tailor is coming when the budget allows.

Be careful. Don't spend a ton of money on alterations to clothes that will never fit very well. I say that because I think a lot of your jackets just don't work for your body. Altering them will have limited benefit.

On your mark, get set, #menswear. New camera coming in a few days has a far better auto focus system and is also expected to make the menswearwalk easier to capture in all its stupid awesome glory.

Trying the new Eidos jacket again with light grey SuSu trews. Tie is Vanda silk/linen, shirt is Kamakura, shoes are Carmina snuff.

Something I'll need to consider. Do you think that my frame necessitates abandoning sack jackets?

^ I actually think that jacket looks pretty freaking fantastic on you. Especially a fan of the quarters on the jacket and your physique in relation to each other.

Thanks, man! I dig the quarters, too. It's also the roomiest jacket I own at this point, which is good because I'm fattening up quite adequately ever since I moved to the burbs.

Just wait until the little one comes! Your neck of the woods is far from the burbs. Jacket looks good and that combo is really nice.
