another thrift fit, I am going to crosspost this in the good taste thread because I am seeking critique
I am figuring out what to wear to a casual youth in government luncheon at the state capital
also I promise I am not one of those douchy high schoolers that wears a blazer and loafers everyday, I wear jeans, flannels, and leather jackets most of the time
HELP ME!? how do I impress and schmooze with old dirt bag politicians and also impress girl of high school age?!
Actually this is the most sober ive been on a Friday night in a long time - my babysitter couldnt work tonight. So, Ian gets a lucid response.
Age has nothing to do with dressing well in a proper social function. You can dress however the devil cares for day settings and parties and what not, blame it on the impetuousness of youth or rebellion. But if you are attending something that has an impact on your future career and lays groundwork for something that directly affects monetary gain, do your best.
This means : do NOT roll your pant cuffs. Have them hemmed at the proper length. Make sure everything you are wearing is pressed. Dont wear anything you have seen in the peacock thread. Play the colors safe - stick with a white or blue shirt (pressed), and a striped or solid tie. Do not wear a pocket square. Wear a solid blue or pinstripe suit or a security guard look. Fit is paramount, you should by no means look like you are wearing your fathers clothing or the clothing of a dead/outgrown man you found with a yellow tag stapled through the lapel on it. Labels are meaningless for this as the odds of someone asking you if the spalla camicia on your jacket is Attolini or Isaia happening are as slim as finding a Rolex in the pocket of a thrifted pair of RLPL pants. Wear your best fitting outfit, be clean shaven, and take the knowledge you have and skill set you have acquired this far in your education and let your personality do the talking for you. Many times you see people wearing the most expensive clothes in the world and they dont resonate. They have no gravitas. You need to feel confident in well fitting, good looking clothing. You wont be confident in an ill fitting Kiton suit, this I promise you. Now go shave, clean that nasty fucking dribble thats going down your mirror, press your shirt, brush your teeth, practice your best movie star smile, and go out and get the dopest chick in the room and impress some politicians. Resume thrifting the following day.
