Love it. Very appropriate. The pants and tie are a bit too wide and are giving this a grandpa look. Next time get them trimmed up and you'll look the part without being too old about it.

Man what's with these comments every where? Would you like it if someone posted a photo of you with similiar vitriol.

Thanks! Yes, pants do need to be tapered but not enough time until Saturday :(

I can't tell from that one, but I think it could possibly be one of those jackets (forget the name) that does drape properly with both buttoned. That actually seems fairly likely, given that he has a "following." Most people who are interested in menswear know not to button the bottom button.

 

Incidentally, he looks sort of dumb, bottom button done or not. The pants aren't my thing. Also, I would say that comments like this directed at a style blogger are entirely appropriate. I wouldn't say he looks dumb to his face, but the internet is not a hugbox, and I think there's less of an obligation to be gentle with someone who puts himself forward with confidence, saying "this is good," than there is with someone who's just asking for advice and information.

Would advise against tapering pants.  They have an excellent drape and clean lines all the way to the ground that you'll lose in a mess of wrinkles if you taper them.  Tie is a little wide for the lapels but not by too much.

Personally, I think they could stand to be tapered, but not a whole lot - maybe 3/4 inch off the hem. What are they now, nine inches across?

Quick question: what are 'odd' trousers?

Dress trousers that are not part of a suit.

Thanks. Does it mean they once were, but are no longer, like an orphaned jacket, or just any dress trouser that's sold on its own?

Either one, but if it was clearly a part of a suit (for instance, subtle windowpane or any pinstripe), it may as well go to goodwill - you're not going to be able to wear them on their own.

Would get them tapered, not that much, but still a bit.
And also, my tailor would be able to get it done by the end of the week, maybe ask him for a one time favor and if necessary pay a premium.

Nope, you can wear windowpane trousers. Same goes for hounds tooth, checkered, plaid, etc. But those are more difficult to pair. Unfortunately, I have about three pinstripes in my wardrobe (when I was a young sartorial neophyte). I might just put them in a box... or Ebay.

Atlanta SFers: who is your cobbler of choice? I'm looking for a good cobbler to resole some of my leather soled boots to a more durable sole (leather just doesn't cut it for outdoor work) and to have someone work on my more expensive footwear in general, and I'm having trouble finding an acceptable answer. I've heard Bennie's, Trio, Midtown Shoe Repair... but none of them actually seem to stand out. What are your experiences?

I've asked the guys at Sid Mashburn and they said "Bennie's for small repairs" and for complex repairs they send it out off to New York, and shipping off my boots isn't something that's particularly appealing to me.

Agree with everything, but they dont add much to the conversation nor contain anything most of us won't agree with, though with a lot more unneccessary vehemence.

How subtle are we talking about, here? I mean, there are some windowpanes that seem (to me, at least) exclusively the province of a suit. The stuff on the left is bold enough that it could (imo) be worn as a trouser alone without looking out of place. The one on the right seems a bit too subtle and restrained - it looks like it belongs on a suit.
