Lino picture (Click to show)

 

 

Again I find myself separated from my photographer (I really need to learn how to take selfies) so these pics are not new. Double breasted jacket in a heavy Holland & Sherry tweed, cashmere tie from Petronius with the famous 7 and a linen monogrammed ps, all from Al Bazar in Milano. Of course I met the legend Lino while I was there, but that pic is hidden since I visited the store the "wrong" day on my last visit to Milano, so I was not dressed for the occasion (to say the least...).

That's the first time I've seen a Lino tie on an SF member. Can't really top that for #menswear #awesomeness!

 

Does Lino have all his ties made by Petronius, or do they come from various sources?

DipTies brought a howitzer to a knife fight. Barring the entry of a Full Wooster™, I think he's got this in the bag.

When I was there (about 10 months ago) all the ties with the number 7 were from Petronius. Of course they have "normal" ties as well and I'm not sure that all of them were from Petronius.

The rules can go fuck themselves - well known #menswear proverb.

So. I channel my inner Kimber and ditch the tie and the proper footwear.

And a nod to the great Agnelli.

The Friday Challenge, as stated above, is "#menswear", which, if I am interpreting the challenge correctly, means "the stylistic affectations of the moment". As much as I am too old to be "of the moment", I've done my best, within my means to comply - a single-breasted peak lapel suit, with ticket pocket; trousers with side tabs, no belt loops; a cutaway collar shirt; non-black shoes with a blue suit; a pocket square from Drake's; and colorful socks. That's as affected as I can be on a Friday before a major holiday.

Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
Shirt - Tyrwhitt
Tie - Hermes
Braces - Paul Stuart
Cufflinks - Metropolitan Museum of Art
PS - Drake's, via the Armoury, NYC
Shoes - C & J

#menswear details:

- The pose
- Long sleeved polo shirt with collar spread on the lapels (TBH, I didn't wear them like that outside my own apartment)
- Suit with crazy wide lapels
- Trousers with side adjusters, 2 inch cuffs, pleats et c
- Blue tassel loafers

In all honesty, besides the shirt collar popping, I like a lot of the #menswear-y stuff.



Bonus pic of my grandpa doing something similar back in the 40s:

From today. I guess mint green trousers, suede loafers without socks and jacket with upper two buttons closed count for #menswear. No?

Went to Coney Island for the first time ever on a whim today.  I probably wouldn't have worn this in hindsight.  Chambray cutaway collar shirt, linen jacket with 3/2 roll, patterned pants with 2 inch cuff, espadrilles, no socks, panama hat.

Why? It's a good MC casual look, and not exactly "out there" for being an AAS fit.

Thanks. I like the fit. It's just not beach attire. I probably would have worn shorts.
