Great, thanks! Fur "method" seemed like some odd wording

The RRL are nice, they are semi-boot cut which works since I wear boots a lot. The Gustins fit well but are super stiff, and the Wings and Horns feel very nice and surprisingly comfortable for being fairly new.

Been admiring the recent DB action, and wouldn't mind getting in on that, but evidently not yet.

 

 

Better, but where's the pants? Three cuff buttons... Maybe pinstripes and chalk stripes cancel each other out to form a sport jacket? 

 

 

What would Miles Redd say?

 

 

Also, who knew I had a DSLR? I been holding out on you guys and working on that white balance. Goorin Bros Ivy driver cap, two ways.

 

 

Oliver Spencer, RLX, Canali

 

 

 Random unlabeled paisley ascot

 

 

ties: Burb, Paul Stuart, Makers, Hilfiger made in England, Hawes & Curtis, Carroll & Crisp, dunhill, older Zegna, J Press Ireland, Makers

 

 

Warm in LA this weekend

 

 

Not bad for a kid football game during the Superbowl halftime show tho

I think the #1 thing is fit.  It has to fit well and not be too tight / too long / too short / too big.  If you walk out of the house wearing something you don't feel comfortable in due to how it fits, you'll feel uncomfortable all over and it shows in how you present yourself.  If it fits great and you can wear it with ease, that's half the battle of wearing it confidently. 

 

For me, #2 is "not giving a shit".  Not in a frat-boy or Guido flip-cuff club-goer kind of way...just in a "this is what I'm wearing, I made my decision and I'm sticking with it."  

 

The first time you get a compliment, you're set.  I wear a pair of really bright PRL madras pants from Spoo a couple times a year, and when I do (Vegas, Florida etc), invariably I'll get a few "hey nice pants" from the guys and way more "I love your pants!" from the gals.

 

I'll echo another member who said to keep it to one piece.  Bright pants: go with a solid polo or OCBD in a coordinating solid color.  Bright shirt: pick trousers in a coordinating solid color.  You don't want to be a clown.  Be serious about it though - no sneakers - get some nice neutral loafers / drivers.

I told you, don't go near any blacklights.

The Wings and Horns are extremely form fitting and you can tell what religion I am... The RRLs are my favorite for now.
