HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 2819

post #42271 of 46951

Those who leave their houses after getting up, having their tea, and getting dressed often see all sorts of interesting things, like this sign I saw today on an office door.......


.....the ever popular close-up (of the sign).


Brooks Brothers tweed jacket, ecru PPBD shirt, and tie, Jim Thompson pocket square, L L Bean cord trousers, and Allen-Edmonds khaki grain McTavishes.

Some might have noticed I have buttoned only the bottom button on a three button jacket.  I am enjoying the freedom all men once enjoyed before the invention of the internet, for example, an illustration from a 1939 Brooks Brothers catalog, recently posted on the Ivy Style Facebook page by Carmelo Pugliatti.......


.....for any post-internet boys who think this is a catalog illustration, but real people never did this, a picture of a real person doing this taken around the corner from where I lived for forty years.


Remember, they are your buttons.  You got up, had your tea, got dressed, maybe took your cat for a walk, and went to work and made the money to pay for your buttons and you can button them any way you want to button them.

Great post, Roycru. Since I have not posted my own fit pics, I will refrain from making any bizarre comments.

@Coxsackie It's quite interesting how solid that Minnis appears at even a slight distance. Excellent stuff.

I know a man who always buttons his buttons any way he wants )) Often the same way as we see on that 1939 Brooks Brothers catalog )

Cary Grant was not a normal mortal and could pull off anything, like walking a cat. :D

I've cohabited with a number of Siamese, and they all walked on a leash.

Hmmm... I don't agree, but I do concede that there's something slightly unusual about the jacket's visual balance.

 

It's not the length, however - jacket hem lines up with top of my trouser inseam, maybe overlaps below it a tad, fully covers my derrière, and is "correct" with respect to my thumb joint.

 

Actually I think the issue, if any, is in the button positions. I asked for a slightly lower buttoning point on this commission, and I'm very happy with the result. However I feel that consequent to that request, the three buttons have ended up probably all slightly too close together.

 

If they had been spaced further apart while leaving the middle buttoning point where I specified, the bottom button would have been too low.

 

My Formosa linen suits exhibit a similar button stance -

- so in this respect, my new Coccinella is in good company. Let's just say I'm not going to be losing any sleep over it.
