Lol, I don't stand a chance.
Lots of linen, pointed end knit, untucked back blade, unfused collar, wool/silk square, BnT jacket, beard.
Don't you have a peak lapel odd jacket? Dudeman, that's a missed opportunity.
Nah, I think he just laid down a marker that will be very hard to beat. The only weakness here is that Claghorn doesn't have feet and therefore can't sport the iconic shoes of #menswear--either narrow-waisted loafers in grain or suede, or double-monks.
Some predictions: lots of the aforementioned shoes, lots of linen, lots of cream/eggshell trousers, lots of high-waisted trousers, lots of slubs, lots of beards. (My entry will tick all but one of those boxes).
I do, but BnT is more #menswear
I have but one word to add to this thread.
My strategy for this challenge was to try to reference as many of the things @Anden included in the examples as possible, and then add linen and slubs to that. That's what #menswear means, right?
First, linen galore: linen blend jacket, linen shirt, linen pocketsquare.
Matka silk tie with slubs for days.
Bonus points for aircraft-carrier sized lapels.
Down below, we've got cream trousers that are cotton but are cuffed like they're wool.
To cap it all off, dubmonks in suede.
@heldentenor Love the PS/jacket/shirt/tie combo. Would love a close-up if you have one.
All the pieces look great, but I don't think the white shirt goes well with the cream pants. I think a light blue shirt would look much better here.
Reflective coloured lenses
Green Draper WSL cloth
Linen BD shirt
Silk bourette tie
Christian Kimber linen square
All in all - yes, you could say I'm a wanker winner.
@Coxsackie well that's my entry done and dusted. Great look and I love the suit--first wear/post on SF?
Also, you forgot to give yourself credit for the bigass oak door, another iconic staple of #menswear.
Thanks, I've posted the suit once before, but it's a summer suit and we've been in winter here in Sydney.
Predictably, though - first day of spring today and it's suddenly 22 degrees in the shade! That's Sydney for you.
Don't discount your entry yet, it's strong.
This is off to a strong start. Doesn't look like I'll be able to participate (going out of town), but look forward to what everyone else comes up with...maybe a linen DB with a polo and Belgian loafers
I must say that I'm utterly impressed by the entries so far. Both the thought behind the fits and the photography.
