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

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.

Great combination you have going on here. Nice tie. Boomin' lapels...

@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.

 

Cheers,
