    Wow. This is so nice. This has to get 20 thumbs for the other thread ... especially considering what else has made it. Mine was probably like the 3rd one I've ever given, and lucky #20.

    I think that 20 + thread is a FAIL.

    I'm not certain I agree. I do, however, wish the pants were a deeper shade of tan, to balance out all the other brown elements. With that, I think the blue jacket would work.

    The DB would be another nice touch.

    Nice and good looking daugther.
    It's giving me the idea to create a thread call "shoes closet contest"!
    What do you think about it ?

    Actually, yours not so much. I think the statement was a reaction to a number of comments that had come before it. In this case, at least you were soliciting for thumbs for someone else. Which is a whole lot better than soliciting for oneself.

    Change the rules on the 20+ thread. Make it your own thread or something. There are many reasons why a post could get 20+ thumbs up and it may not necessarily be based SOLELY on the fit itself. How about going thru a week worth of WAYWRN pix and picking YOUR OWN top 5 favourite fits?

    That makes sense. I didn't think I was overly critical.

    I just don't click the thumbs up button for fit pics that are nothing more than applying rudimentary knowledge acquired from this site.

    Don't get me wrong - they're fine outfits. But I was hoping a thread like that would get 1 picture per week, if that. Like a true best of the best.

    I think it's far from that. I think it's a combination of auto-thumbs for certain posters and thumbs as encouragement for people who are improving.

    The issue is not with colors but more with scale and proportions. He is wearing a very nice FU shirt with a tall spread collar (which I love) and bold patterns; and a jacket that doesn't complement the look. That shirt and tie combo requires going big and bold or just go back to normal clags i.e. wearing a muted patterned shirt.

    I definitely get where kulata is coming from. I think a less extreme change would be had I worn a navy jacket with wider lapels (those are 3 inch and I think it would have worked better with 3.5). The larger lapel would make the scale of the check appear smaller. The DB isn't a bad idea. If it were colder, tweed would work. But a patterned jacket would be overload, I think (I think you mentioned a pattern jacket in the post previous to this).

    Also, the tie is a neat and not a polka dot, so that's a little less bold.

    Did you iron a crease into your jeans?

    Russ Ackoff, one of the fathers of systems thinking, boiled his wisdom into a series of epigrams called Management f-Laws. One of my favorites speaks to an organization's desire for metrics. To paraphrase: "When we cannot measure what we value, we value what we can measure."

    Yes. They're denim trousers, not 5-pocket.

    A structured peak lapel glen plaid suit. It will take you to very deep waters which I am not sure you'll be comfortable with and at worst you'll look like a Tom Ford model:D Holdfast would probably wear what I have in mind.
