As promised, pictures of my outfits - Page 59

Interestingly I dont own a plain white pocket square. I also RARELY wear a plain white dress shirt.

I received the RL suit today. It looks great, better than I expected. The pants fit perfectly. The jacket is very tight, it LOOKS perfect but feels very tight, I might need it taken out 1/2"-1".

Here is probably the closest you will see in my pre-improvement pics. I was photographed for a newspaper article that had nothing to do with music, so I wore a normal length tie and fairly plain jeans and shoes. The blazer is an OTR Banana Republic 44L. Sleeves are a bit long.

spiffy, I'd love to see pics of the ebay suit pre-alteration.

It is amazing to see how well you take the digs that the jerks here have unloaded. Some people just forget that sartorial tastes (and perceptions) can differ, and that they were beginners too sometime in the past.

Hats off to your positive attitide.

I'm on the fence as to whether or not it needs alteration. The fabric pulls slightly, but not very noticable. However it feels very tight.

Mt Spiffy probably gets a lot of compliments from women because he acts in a graceful manner, is respectful, confident and assertive but not arrogant or cocky. This is something more respectable than any clothing choice.

Eh, I'm working on not being arrogant or cocky

Thank you.

I will, I really will. I've been swamped with a lot of things.

These are several outfits that I have worn recently and received numerous compliments on, perhaps more than usual. Most are coat/tie/jeans/shoes you guys dont like.

A suit, the light makes it look brighter and bolder than it is:





This shirt, tie, and coat were all thrift shop finds:





This shirt was a Christmas gift, it is several sizes too large, but I love the design so I kept it:





The infamous pony shoes, with an equally outrageous tie knot:





Similar ensemble, but with a sweater:





A step further casual, no tie:






I expect a lot of criticism, and that's fine, but remember, it's unlikely to have any effect. I love my clothes, I love my shoes, and except where mentioned, everything fits the way I want it to.

Here we go!
