Coccinella - Maker's Shirt - Ascot of Germany - Henry Carter


Fantastic suit, I really love the fabric! I guess that's linen/wool/silk, right?

I don't know that many Americans would consider CM's outfit formal. I suspect many would consider him dressed up though.


I think this touches on something important, and perhaps a difference of terminology. I think all these people saying my fit would be "formal" in their countries are really saying that it would be "dressed up". Formal has a meaning, at least in English, and my fit is not it. 

 

Also, @Coxsackie that's great.

Tie is too close to suit in color.

Correct. Was going to post something eerily similar.

You'd only be able to say that Norwegians have a highly casualized idea of formality which you could then say informs your response. However you can't make the claim that my fit is objectively too formal for an OCBD shirt.

I agree with @Roy Al and the others. For me, your ensemble would not be considered formal at my office but would be almost anywhere else around town here. Sadly it's just the direction the world is going. Of course I still think of Black Tie when someone says "formal."

Again, not formal. Perhaps dressy. It's simply a misuse of the word. Business/government environments dress informally by definition.

I think this is directly to the point. 'Dressed up' is better.
