post #25741 of 55200

Thoughts on new suit supply collection? Enormous amount of linen stuff. I personally like that (and think its a travesty that more linen isnt worn in aus) but I know many people dont like it,  so it will be interesting to see how it goes down.

Brendon Julian is looking quite sharp, although I think his jacket is a little tight.

Rob sorry mate, it could just be my old school training but I have to disagree on this. Side bulge is better managed by a) less length, I.e the trousers falling in a straight line not bunching and b) having the right width at the ankle. Wider ankles and especially lighter drapier fabrics like some high super counts are a pain in the ass for this. On the other hand smaller widths can have the same affect, because again they can't fall over the shoe properly. Stiffer and heavier fabrics, mohairs and fresco for example don't tend to side bulge but of course they still need to be fitted properly. Either way, it's only natural that the front of the trouser will break the most, because it has the vamp of the shoe in the way to stop it falling straight like the back, so a slight angle can help. But as I said, not a hard and fast rule and not widely done anymore.

At FJ's we had the contract to do the army dress/formal uniforms (mess kits etc) and some of the higher ranking guys would be absolute sticklers for a bit of angle, so they could have only the slightest or no break at the front, but the back still touched the shoe I.e avoiding the pee wee Herman look.

Of course all of this is completely pedantic and 99.9% of the population wouldn't even notice it outside of Styleforum. But being pedantic was a trait drilled in to us at Fletcher Jones, you couldn't even fit trousers by yourself without being shadowed for a year by a senior fitter, coats 2 years.

P.s sorry for the FXH length post (no offense FXH ha ha)

Do you guys have any reccs for a shoe cleaning kit?

Or do you buy items individually?

 

In any case suggestions of what and wear to buy are greatly appreciated! For black and brown leather.

Wow! Now that is big. I'd much rather watch an hour about that than the excriciating point-scoring on Q&A right now.

Regrettably, this is par for the course in the APS nowadays.

 Everyone knows you have to have a bit of angle on the hem! Not just the the 00.1%

All custom linen. RLPL tie.

Nice tie P. Bear. Nice everything.

 

You sure do like a low button stance.

Gotta be at the natural waist line. Being 6'1 with a long torso doesn't help.

True that - you have an allowance of going 1 or 2 cm (0.5 - 1") above the belly button.

 

Alternatively, with a long torso, you could try a 3-roll-2. Just that the roll has to be very well.. rolled.

Avoid refined carbs (since carbs can't be withheld completely) - such as flours, rice, pasta, risotto, etc. Once a week go mental, the rest of the time stop it.

I find even with some refined sugar each day I can consistently lose weight by avoiding the carbs.

Don't skimp on the animal fats (but avoid processed plant fats such as canola and peanut oil). Cheese is great!

Just some advice I've received that works well for me.

Currently eating Oreos and drinking full cream milk. Will probably lose weight this week.

Oreos?
