I see you lurking! Your thoughts would be warmly received.
Most certainly the houndstooth, the colours are relatively easy to pair with most things.
Not a fan if aqua in general and not this multi-stripe windowpanes in particular....
Just a heads up you'll probably get a better response if you upload the images and paste the image URL. I don't think any one wants to download any unknown files nowadays.
@aravenel #3. Price is reasonable
@TweedyProf #1. I had a Caruso jacket in #2 fabric and I ended up not wearing it. It's been sold
@TweedyProf: I would go with the cream and brown Shepherd's check. It's more likely to fill a "hole" in your sportsjacket wardrobe. Antonio opined in the Eidos Napoli thread that it is the second-most versatile jacket after the navy blue blazer. I was going to buy it a few days ago until I learned it was no longer available in my size.
OK. I'll try this again........
What do you guys think of the length of these two jackets. I tried both over the weekend but did not make a decision because I am a bit unsure of the length. The grey is an Isaia "Cortina" model and the other is by Boglioli. For reference, they are both 28" in length. I'm 5'9" and most of my jackets are about 29". They both fit almost exactly as shown in the photos
actual boglioli fit
Team Asia fist pound
If you want classic length those are too short. Not covering your seat nor the models. As a casual blazer perhaps, but if the concern is classic length then those are too short. If you don't care and it fits your shoulders etc then keep it. Distance shot make it hard to make out much though.
Thanks Pingson, Kulata, AC, will ponder.
The houndstooth for sure. It's infinitely more versatile. You can dress it up with grey trousers and a nice tie like justin, dress it medium(?) with brown chinos and a light blue ocbd and probably even dress it down with jeans.
When it comes to groomsmen, I don't get the whole practice of having a bunch of dudes standing behind you, especially not when they're all matching. The history behind it isn't particulalry appealing either. Anyway, I'm going to avoid that whole matchy-matchy problem by getting married without any groomsmen, when the time comes.
If they must wear a gold/yellow tie make sure it's not shiny and has some nice texture to it. Maybe linen, a grenadine or perhaps even cotton if the weather is still nice. Wear it with a navy suit and it'll look ok. I'm afraid it'll look washed out with a light grey suit. It's certainly a very hard look to pull off. All three ties you've chosen are nice, but I'd recommend you don't buy the same tie. Buy different ones in the yellow spectrum and it'll look much nicer, like your groomsmen actually got to choose their own tie.
Not even one pull-up, Noodles. That makes me sad. Screw suits and immediately direct your focus to pulling your chin up over the damn bar.
Not a big deal man, if I could trade muscle for more brain I definitely would
Has anyone had Will Field re-cut double reverse pleat trousers into flat front? And if so, was it successful? Or should I just question my own sanity regarding removing double pleats.
Muscle can help you get brain....if you know what I mean.
Like many others, I'd prefer to have both.
Shockingly, this is possible.
Yes, it is possible to have both. But in actual real life, the smartest and most successful men I've come across have spent very little time inside a gym.
