    Pocket squares are all over workaday Manhattan these days.

    20s and 30s professionals playing MadMen is ubercostume (not to mention annoying).

    Kind of like how Oldog pairs very loose fitting hawaiian short sleeve shirts (see below) with carefully pressed, pleated trousers.

    FWIW, that is considered CBD in Hawaii. Foo's looks like laundry day.

    If it's going to be nostalgic and spring picnic, why not make it black raw denim and Adidas sneakners?

    Oh, I forgot, it's the Ambrosi thread. [​IMG]

    You don't think so? Think it's pretty rampant, actually.

    Did Ambrosi come to the US or was his trip canceled?

    Well, then they are doing it wrong because they have no other elements of the look even close to right.

    He sent a facebook message saying he was postponing his trip a couple weeks. He told medtechexpert that he would be bringing my pants. I hope both things are true.

    M, I'm in Naples again next weekend and should be picking up my next set of pents from Salvatore. If you like, I can take your commissions with me. Keep in mind that I'm not back in SF until early June, just let me know.

    Guys, the point wasn't to show-off a pretty outfit. I was simply trying to show that tailored clothing can, and should, be used more broadly. It should not be used to play dress-up. WAYWRN is rife with that problem. Just because you throw on a tie and put a pocket square in your pocket doesn't mean you'r necessarily better dressed than a guy in a sweatshirt.

    +1. although that sweatshirt is horrendous. anything else and it would've been great. Those pants fit beautifully.

    By the same measure, $800 pants should not be used to play dress-down.

    there are plenty of designer pants which run $800 that are meant to be worn with sneakers. Lanvin etc.

    So what you are saying is a man shouldn't bother wearing a SC or PS if it doesnt fit perfectly and isn't expertly matched? How about being dressed appropriate? That has no weight? Sometimes I feel ones effort regardless of the execution is worth a lot more than one just wearing a sweatshirt because it fits better or the color constrasts with the sweatpants better.

    The price has nothing to do with it. It's the style of pants. I would never wear pleated flannel pants with a sweatshirt

    See, if they were flat fronts and he wore some white Common Projects with it, it could work. Or even some suede chukkas.

    It's the pleats that throw everything off.


    what's so inherently formal about pleats and flannel?

    i thought flannel was kinda casual on the scale of things. Pleats just make things comfortable/fit nicely.


    Sweatshirts and tailored dress pants are incongruous.

    So what you are all saying is that when you want to wear a sweater, you pretty much have to wear jeans?
