Slow news day, apparently ...  :)

 

I honestly don't care how he dresses.  It's his words which are worth reading.

 

Similarly, say, for Hardy Amies.  I don't care that his predictions about the future of men's style were awful.  He remains a top notch non-professional historian, with an insider's insights into the history of British classic style.   Like anything, read it for what's valuable and discard the irrelevancies (for example, I pass over without further comment his occasional lapses into distasteful chauvinism).

 

Ditto for all authors, surely?

 

Cheers,

In one of his books, he advocates wearing a dark, striped suit jacket with jeans for a night out.

But by and large, I enjoy his writing.

He was wearing that same outfit the last time I saw him.

Chocolate brown velvet is pretty sharp for single or double breasted odd jacket eveningwear. Something to be worn pretty relaxed.

 

Other shades of velvet are better suited for smoking jackets imo.

@emptym has a brown velvet jacket that he wore to a SF Meetup. Very nice.

I find my purple velvet jacket versatile for festive events. (I also got a ton of wear out of a black velvet jacket that I enjoyed for many years.) A velvet jacket is fun for the right event. I don't think that specific colors of velvet must be limited to smoking jackets. It all has to do with the personal style of the person wearing it.

I tried on a vintage brown velvet jacket yesterday. If it had fit me, that bad boy would have come home with me.

Extra .75 thumb given for extravagantly terrible Flusser pun.  Spend it wisely.

I bet you laughed though. I mean, it was so bad it was good.

Thus the bonus thumb

I often wear a black velvet blazer when going to clubs and such, paired with black jeans (oh the horror!), a white shirt and black Chelsea's. It's a pretty good look for the occasion IMHO. Not something I would post on SF though.

An alternative is this (yellow/gold with hints of navy). SC is a cream/brown shepherd's check.




I find a solid tie really the best option for a checked SC, with stripes the next best option. Ok, carry on.

#1 has pattern-scale issues, it's too similar to the jacket.
#2 I generally like, although I worry it might get lost in the jacket (to my mind, this is the real problem with "matchy-matchy" combinations.)

It's backwards logic.Formal=white linen square (generally true), so white linen square=formal (demonstrably false.)

I will say I generally don't love a white linen square with tweed, but it otherwise seems to work with pretty much everything.
