    Reminds me of, "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication."

    Great great fit.

    I normally can't stand ties in that color, but this looks really good. We need more of your fits around here Ian.

    This is why shorter jackets are huge here in Korea; they've got proportionally shorter legs. That being said, if I recall, you've also got big hips (as do I), so short jackets might not flatter in that area.

    Hippies.

    Have you experimented in pant cuffs and rise?

    That was more directed at RDias, the cuff/rise.

    Both of you are hippies.

    I'd get them long enough to cover the widest area of my hips. The one I got today does, and I don't find it particularly unflattering in that aspect [​IMG]

    My pants are very high rise already, and cuffs range between 4.5 - 5 cm.

    ^ I assure you, my proximal phalanges are devoid of ink. Plenty of hair though. [​IMG]

    I'd love to see a greater variety of looks in this thread. It can get very "SF-approved" at times, with a plethora of navy jacket/grey trouser/knit tie combos. Not to say that doesn't look good when it's done nicely, because obviously it can... it's just nice to have some variety & excitement in the thread too. The high-risk/high-reward outfits are always more interesting to me, even when they fail (as they should more often than not, given their inherent difficulty).

    Nice colours. While you're a big guy, I think you could still stand to taper the trousers a bit more from what they are here.




    Messing around with two very difficult to reconcile parameters. First, I wanted to wear this green shirt, to experiment with this week's unusual colour shirt theme. And secondly, I wanted to wear this linen jacket, because I had to go to the tailor & order some matching trousers to create an ersatz linen suit, and needed to be sure the colour of the cloth hadn't changed significantly since I first got the jacket. Combining those two fixed outfit elements proved... very difficult! But it entertained me:

    I agree. Your trousers could be tapered slightly, which will look way better. But, Don, almost all the stuff people tell you here - we're really reaching. Looking great.

    Looking good HF.

    Also, I understand what you mean with more variety. But, I really like the fits as of late. Less sporadic, which I like. Maybe there should be an "In almost good taste" thread that will leave out certain crazy fits and let other posters with more SF approved fits post. I'd follow that.
