Will do. Sorry about that.

post #19607 of 32190

I read SF fairly often, but I don't post very often, partially because I find it time consuming to find replies to what I write.

 

I'm curious what the rationale is behind having so many large on-going threads rather than having separate sub-sections for them? e.g. this thread being a sub-section of Classic Menswear. That would have the advantage of being able to easily skip content that you don't care about and being able to see all of the replies to your specific thread.

hi all,

I have a christening this Saturday and its due to be approx. 30 degrees Celsius. It's not formal enough to wear suit to it, I was hoping to wear my new AE Walnut strands.

My strands are the first pair of walnut shoes that I own and I have no idea on how to match them. How does this look? I'm wearing my chinos and was planning on wearing a new Ralph Lauren green stripe shirt.

Any feedback appreciated

Is it possible to be a middle aged hipster?

Thank you. 

Last year I travelled to Austria - and it seemed very common for middle aged men to have tote bags. On my return to London, I seemed to see them more than I used to - obviously because I was aware of them and was looking out for them.

does this look weird?

 

i recently got a white polo shirt as a gift, and it was kinda too big for me.

 

so i decided to wear it with my beige sweater. does this look weird to you guys?

 

any suggestions?

 

 

Personally I wouldn't match this with a beige sweater, as the colours are too close - it can have the risk of making the sweater look mis coloured or even dirty. 

Try a bold black, or perhaps a navy - of course colours like red will match nicely, however I would still to the darker colours unless you want to make a bold statement. 

 

Hope this helps :)

If you are going golfing, yachting, etc then I think It works fine, but for casual wear I would not match these up- I agree with the ideas given above. Also I would recommend against wearing the collar outside of the sweater. Just my tastes though. Good luck.

   I have a new "blazer/SC" I say this as it appears to be more of an orphaned suit jacket upon closer inspection. None the less it is a very good fit and fairly good quality so I would like to make use of it. What I am interested in is opinions on which color pants to wear with it. I have included a image of the jacket as well as the wool pants I have at my disposal. 




The jacket is a subtle plaid, predominantly a medium gray. The pants available to me are from right to left:
1. Dark charcoal 
2. Charcoal (slight texture gabardine)
3. Gray (worsted)
4. Medium Olive
5. Medium Brown
6. Taupe/Tan (Calvary Twill)

I have a few other pairs but they are out at the cleaners presently. Any quick opinions would be appreciated. 

Thank you, 

M

Number 3, the grey ones.

Those chinos are waaaaaay too slim. I personally wouldn't wear those shoes with them either. That color is a hard one to work with and the style has a bit of an identity crisis; while a captoe oxford the brogueing and color is a bit of a head scratcher.

Yes, there are tons of them in Park Slope, where hipsters go to die!

Thank you Patrick, I suspected that gray would be the best choice.

This thread is part of Classic Menswear... There is, I believe, a similar thread in SW&D.

Thanks Midnight. 

 I am about 6ft, 32 waist, 40 chest, although most big box stores say its a 42, I prefer a snugger more tailored fit. Neck about a 16, little less. Arms probably close to 37. The sleeve length on the shirts I mentioned is between 27 and 28 from shoulder seem to end of cuff. The sleeves are also slim, far slimmer that your average box store "slim fit". Thank you again for your time, I have been looking for shirts that fit me well for years. its just unfortunate that buy time I find some they are are all logo'd. Granted I can wear with a jacket, waistcoat, sweater and no one is the wiser. But it would be nice to have some other options. Randomly, I just received my first pair of Alden's based on recommendations from this site and they are fantastic!

Midnight,

 

Thanks for your reply. My measurements are 32 waist, 40 chest (although most big box stores will try and put me in a 42, I prefer a snugger/tailored fit), little less than 16 neck, about 37 arm. The shirts I mentioned have a sleeve length between 27 and 28 inches depending on the style from shoulder seem to end. Also their sleeves are slimmer, much slimmer that say you average stores "slim fit". A brooks bros super was like a tent in comparison and the fabric seemed of lesser quality (maybe I don't know quality fabric tho.) Thanks for any information, I have searched for proper fitting shirts for years, its unfortunate the ones I finally find are logo'd, however I can wear with a waistcoat, sweater, or jacket and no one is the wiser. It would be nice to have other options. I am not opposed to having things tailored, but it would be nice to have a good starting off point rather than just getting a awful shirt and trying to have it fixed. Randomly, I recently purchased my first pair of Alden shoes based on information on this site and they are fantastic.

 

Sorry if this is a dupe post. Forum posting is strange to me at times.
