TEN TIES, FIVE JACKETS (10/5 THREAD): Fall-Winter Edition - Page 15

post #211 of 279
@TweedyProf, I appreciate the purpose of this thread, as well as being asked to contribute to it. I haven't had a chance to take good photos of the ties or jackets individually, but I will get some combinations that include my selections posted, and then edit from there. I also need to add a disclaimer that my lighting and photography skills are both severely lacking.













The next two are suits (the first only to show the tie), not jackets, but I see that others have stretched the rules a bit so I am following suit. Also, the Agnelli Tweed is too much of a favorite of mine to not be included in a F/W round-up.

Only enough cloth for four more ties, though ...  :)

 

Cheers,

Didn't even realize it's the same one I have in green.

Thanks @TweedyProf for the invite, it was a lot of fun thinking this through. Here's my take. I went for maximum versatility + covering all kinds of events from a night at the Opera to casual Sunday stroll.

Jackets/suits:
Navy flannel suit (can be dressed up or down, jacket can be worn separate)
Green tweed jacket
Brown tweed jacket
Light brown/hazel POW suit (jacket can be worn separately, planned)
Wildcard (this could either be another navy/lighter blue jacket or an absolutely crazy check)


CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 90

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90


Three grenadine ties (which alone would cover 99% of possible outfits):
- grey (only for the navy suit, for formal occasions)
- navy (can be worn with anything)
- brown (can also be worn with almost anything)

(grey and navy see above)




Three stripes/repps:
- Burgundy ground
- green ground
- brown ground








Three printed ties:
- navy printed (paired with light blue, very versatile)
- brown printed
- rust printed (with the rest being so versatile, you can have some fun with this one)





CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), default quality


- one red wool/cashmere for very casual fits

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), default quality

The last two pics I stole from my buddy @braddock since I had no good shots of those ties myself. This really was fun and now I'm actually quite convinced I could go through life with those jackets and ties. In the summer, I'd have to go naked, but it's warm anyway, so... Or we could do another one of these when it actually turns spring. Let's see.

Some pure awesomeness in this thread. Great stuff guys! Niels must be the best dressed man in Germany in decades. He's the Franz Beckenbauer of German #menswear. I'm gonna start calling him Der Kaiser.
post #216 of 279

I approached this task by browsing through my fit pics over the last few F/Ws to see what I appeared to gravitate towards most. This isn't necessarily the most versatile selection, in that case. Since I have over 30 sport coats, I dont need things to be especially versatile. As such, I included no solid navy blazers although I have 5 and would obviously describe them as the most versatile of jackets. What strikes me is that I wish I had more gun club in my closet, and that I really regret selling the aubergine cashmere Zegna. 

So my five jackets are:

 

Tan and brown Glen Check (work with Henry Carter challis)

 

 

Burgundy Windowpane (work with Samuelsohn cashmere knit)

 

 

Air force blue Glen Check (worn with Calabrese wool gingham)

 

 

Green-brown windowpane (worn with Panta rust neat)

 

 

Aubergine Glen Check (worn with Mitchell's grey-green wool/cashmere)

 

For ties, I had to restrict my selection to those that I felt were actually seasonal, since I will wear crunchy silk knits and shantung year round, and even some lighter wool ties outside of the colder months too, especially the Calabrese wool gingham below. Anyway, here are the ties (apologies for the hasty, kitchen-counter photography)

 

L-R:  Sozzi navy diamiond wool knit; Mitchell's grey-green wool/cashmere; Brooks Bros olive green knit; Peter Millar green wool; Calabrese brown wool gingham

 

 

 

Brooks Bros brown neat; Panta rust neat; Henry Carter brown challis; Vintage burgundy (less red than it appears here) challis; Samuelsohn brown cashmere knit.

Nice posts today! @SeaJen 30 jackets! As a fellow academic, I'm jealous and impressed. @Sander, you should get @Braddock to provide some input, though he will have to use a picture of yours to even it out.

 

Thanks also for your thoughtful comments, gentleman. 

 

@SpooPoker  has let me know that he might also post something in the near future. 

 

Gentlemen, thanks for helping to end the "curated" period on such a strong note, and to all contributors.

I'd laugh, but that's a very unkaiserlike thing to do.

first of all thank you @TweedyProf for the invitation to the thread.

Finally, this thread is now opened to the community. My thanks for your patience.

 

Just a few points

 

1. All are warmly invited to provide their reflections (please read the original post and have a look through the gallery).

2. Consider this as both an intellectual and practical exercise: what works and what is ideal.

3. Consistent structure in each post is desirable: a shot of the ties, perhaps a shot of the five jackets, and then ideally five quality shots of each fit/jacket. Please do this in one post.

 

Let me also open up the thread to constructive commentary and questions. I'm not interested in snark. There are plenty of places on the internet for that. Let's make this a resource for people.

 

Ok, looking forward to new posts. Let the festivities begin!

@cezinho For a guy just getting into the full time tie game, most impressive. As pairings go (though I recognize that's not entirely the point here) the only weak link I see is with the block stripe tie as it kind of washes out against the navy jacket. Perhaps in different light the contrast is more apparent?

On another note, this thread is a wonderful resource for further enabling purchases of beautiful things I don't really need and can't (or at least shouldn't) afford. Thanks to all participating enablers.

Great thread @TweedyProf! Sorry I haven't contributed as planned. Busiest time of the year here and I just can't find the time to take all these shots.

Doesn't matter though. Great material from a lot of awesome dressers.

Thanks, and no worries Greg.

 

I caught you during the transition between seasons. Of course, anytime you want to post, you are always welcome to.
