HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 596

I'm sorry I don't have 10s of thousands of posts of good fits on this forum, but that it doesn't change the fact that, in my opinion, (take with a grain of salt if you feel that it's too personal) the entire fit looked good, but the perspective makes it look flat without some texture.

 

I wasn't taking issue with your critique, which has merit--a grenadine or knit would have been a more technically sound choice. Rather, I objected to the way you framed it--i.e. that not only was the tie an affront to good taste, but that I needed to immediately dispose of it, then go out any buy some replacements because there was no way I could possibly own any ties that would complement a blue jacket/fawn trouser/blue shirt look.  You are by no means the only poster in this thread to adopt this tone, and it's a part of the "institutional culture," but I don't think it's needed to render a useful, direct critique. That's all I was saying. 

 

I'll own that I'm sensitive with regard to this tie because it was a birthday gift from my partner.  This doesn't mean it's above criticism, though!  Thanks for the compliment about the rest of the fit. 

 

P.S. Please do post a fit or two.

I appreciate the response, and sent you an apology via message. When I'm not changing diapers sometime, I'll be sure to post some fits, and look forward to the responses.

Thanks, and thanks for the PM as well.  I'm just starting to get a semblance of comfort with where my style meets (and often doesn't meet) the conventions of good sartorial taste, so your feedback and critiques are always welcome.  Look forward to seeing those fits.

Rest of fit far too busy for me. I have to say, for a guy that talks a lot about restraint, and the uber intellectual/academic points of coherent dress (iirc), and general trying to make clothing make sense kind of things, you sure do put together, and generally wear, some pretty outre stuff. Jussayin.

Damn, I thought these were Dovers. Can't quite make out if they have the pie-crust stitching.  They're a terrific take on the EG.

 

Awsm fit.

My favourite fit of you, so far. Everything about it is perfect! Textures, patterns, colours, coherence, just perfect, IMO.

From last Thursday.  I went in for my suit fitting today.  We're lengthening the sleeves and pants and letting the waist out a bit.  The button stance and gorge are a little higher than I would like, but it'll work.  I'm excited to get it back and give it a spin.
