I know... now I'm all but demanding that Manholebearpig make an appearance. We old timers need to come out of the e-closet.

Thanks Bam!ChairDance. Re: the trousers - they're a new thrift that I just started wearing. They do need tailoring, but between my recent unemployment and my failure to stop myself budgeting money for the sales, I can't have anything altered until I've stabilised myself, basically (and quite a few things need doing, as it turns out). A lot of my trousers are baggy as a holdover from my hip hop dressing days and because I think they look cool, especially now that I have a more dressed up look - it does help separate me from the more trendy, skinny look most dressed-down tie wearers have going. Mileage varies, I know

^ I like it, I think the baggy trousers work. Barims is rocking some genuinely original steez. I'd love to see you in some wide-legged YSL trousers.

Not much, just a 1/2" or so. If your wrist bone is showing or almost showing, its too short to me.

It is cool that Barims isn't going for the same tight-is-awesome approach that many folks (like me!) fall for, and the fit did remind me of the style that people like Fred Astaire were rocking back in the day (like so). But the difference in proportion between the top and bottom is pretty large, so maybe you could find a happy medium between baggy/fitted? You also have enough going for you in terms of details and materials that you won't need to play as much with proportions to look unique. I dunno.

Thank you. I'd love to see that too, but they had absolutely none in store when I went to their New Bond Street store today (will check their other retailers tomorrow). There were 2 really cool sportscoats, though even at 50% off, they were close to something like $450, which is a little rich for me, and a 70s homage does kind of beg the issue of thrifting actual 70s stuff...

Appreciate seeing this. The cuff really does sit at the top of my hand - the wrist bone was completely covered. I readily admit that a number of my shirts lack sleeve length (though I do have relatively long arms), but they're mostly thrifted or inherited, and buying MTM or bespoke is some time away. This is why my wristwear is essential - it isn't encumbered by the cuffs, so all space is accounted for. Nevertheless, I do think your proposed length is slightly long - that's definitely too far past my wrist joint for comfort. But I do see where you're coming from

Robbie, I really like that first fit. What is the jacket? And boots too I guess haha?
post #30715 of 38322
thanks!

both thrifted
the peacoat is pretty similar to sterlingwear from what I am able to tell
there are no distinguishing marks on the boots anywhere, i have no clue what brand they might be

Mr. Astaire is one of my icons, and your observation goes well with the random statements people have made that I wear "dancing trousers". Fantastic photo. I do have some happy medium trousers that I've been acquiring over the last few months since I felt like a change and was on the way to losing some weight. I posted some slimmer green cords here last weekend, though I don't think the pictures gave a good impression of the fit. As for these cords, I've had some success shrinking stuff in the wash before...

And I don't know if I can meet rach either, he looks like a BITCH!

God, meeting you guys IRL is ruining the fun in SF!

Sorry Xeno, can't dig the latest fit, same goes for you barims.

EDIT: I mean the mystery of LK will be ruined, not that LK will have fat abs (of course that would be terrifying in its own right).

I have perhaps what is known as a swimmer's build despite the fact that I do not swim.

Disagree, unless there's something really wrong with them. Look great.
