    Quite sensible. I agree with you, even though I would rather not. ;) Here is a closer picture and a more accurate representation of the short/small Club Collar to the Fedora. In comparison, how much taller should it be in order to balance the scale of the fedora? Also, are there any particular brands of Club Collars you would recommend to achieve greater harmony?

    An instant contemporary classic. You remind Napoli to stay on track and not forget the simplicity of a second skin. Bellissimo!

    So now we're making snide comments about the thread that exists to make snide comments about men's style forum threads?

    I'm not a GIF guy, but I think I could do with one from Inception here.

    Perhaps 50%, and I would say longer, rather than taller, meaning that I don't think it should come any higher in your neck, but rather add some mass to the bottom edge. I don't know of any brands to recommend. I'm sure I'm not the first to say this, either, but imho the crown of your Fedora may be taller than ideal for the size of your head. Though, with the square shape of the top edge, getting shorter may start to look oddly proportioned, and moving toward a pork pie/fedora hybrid, so I can see the reason for a tall crown. from the slightly side on angle, it looks better. Still, it looks to be as tall as my top hat. I think the width of the brim is spot on.

    Cool stuff, man. One of my immediate thoughts was, don't ever let Manton or Foo see this or you/we might end up with a veeerrryyy long, sometimes really exciting, always r/evolving, never boring though, debate, that alas to this day has not found a real conclusion, as far as I know. Those in-the-know know, white shirt/white PS, socks matching trousers being the keywords. Epic.

    @Claghorn my shirt was ironed, (hastily i admit) the tie knot was as regular as yours. and the only thing different to one of your fits was my cardigan. which will see plenty of use until spring.

    really ladies, if another member posted my fit? it would get thumbs. i know that.

    now i have a tripod, i will try harder to get better comments. even if you guys slam it just for fun. or team up. as you know, i am not a troll, and will try better to win you guys over. even if my style is different. and when i like a fit, i thumb it . but rarely comment negatively on another member's fit. - even crusty sitting with his button's fastened, which is a classic no-no.

    and yes troll,(not you clags) i wear the cardigan 2-3 times a week. so it gets in a few fitpics. seriously, pics or STFU. please, amaze me.

    i do not try to impress, or fit in. I only push others to try new things, and do not expect them to dress like me, but to explore their own options.

    i am known here (in other threads) as generous, and helpful . i will not stop until we accept each other's differences, and learn from eachother. this is the forum's purpose, and the recent debate forced me to wear something simillar to a Claghorn fit. so i am trying on my end.
    And honestly, i liked it, even with the brown cords. but the jacket,tie,shirt and square were taken from his playbook. so props to claghorn, for making me try something different. you guys might like where this leads.......

    Look, I have nothing against you personally, but that fit would never get thumbs even if a forum favourite would have posted it.

    The quality of the picture is horrible due to bad light and mobile camera. You can't really make out any of the details, but from what we can see the shirt collar looks wonky (not in a "sprezz" way either), the PS doesn't seem to match up well with any of the other garments and it's folded in a pretty boring way, the tie could use a good tug and a dimple to make it look more alive. Personally I like blazers with metal button, but on this forum they don't get much love, and this one seem to have lapels bowing in an unflattering way + slightly too wide shoulders (at least it looks so in this pic).

    You keep trotting this out from time to time and I'm sure its riotously funny in your head, but for your own benefit you really should just stop. It wasn't funny in the first place and each time you repeat it, it doesn't get any more amusing, you just make yourself look ever more tedious and dull. If a 'joke' doesn't work the first time, do you really think it gets better with repeated telling? You originally posted this because you took umbrage at a comment I made which wasn't even a direct criticism of you, more a concurrence with what someone else suggested, but you chose to ignore the original poster and come up with this 'hilarious' attempt to put me in my place. Do you think it worked? You have your set of admirers on here, of which I am one on occasion, so I suggest you stick to posting your daily fits and popping up to chip in whenever there's a comment about genitals, but your repeated attempts to regale the board with your uproarious sense of humour really don't seem to get much traction.

    In truth, a lot of it is more over-emoting than over-thinking, as I have a visceral negative reaction to seas of identikit young continentals wearing navy suit/blue shirt/navy tie. The above is either an exploration of the drivers behind the emotion, or a post-hoc rationalising defence. We'll never know which!

    Mine was very tongue in cheek. :)

    I'm so outside their approval range, even if they were still around, I wouldn't want to try my luck.
    It's been very entertaining and instructive, though (still is, reached post #~4500). Also, witnessing the early baby steps of some of the now very settled forumites is pretty enlightening. ;)

    Your maturity shines, along with your knowledge. (i'm joking, your fits would not be better at 2am in a bar restroom.but if you believe so, kudos to you)

    An all around charming ensemble. The trousers are a little short for my personal taste, but that width was quite the rage in the late Teens and early 20's and again in the early-mid 60's. I think you certainly cable of Rockin' it today amongst the rest of your more seamless look.

    Tibor: those are great photos. The look of the high fedora, club collar and DB suit reminds me somewhat of a 1980s new wave album cover. Can't think which the specific one, but there's something about your look that echoes that vibe strongly. On an abstract aesthetic level, I like the outfit a lot.

    Holdfast, that fedora was made in the early 80's, so you are spot on.

    Gary Numan "I Assasin" or "Dance" perhaps?
