    No time to comment on many looks but this one stood out as something a bit wackily different:

    Great looking corduroy blazer.

    If there's enough material, I would cuff the pants togive it a more balance top to bottom look, just my opinion.

    BB, get thee to a core strengthening exercise class. All of your clothes will look 100x better.

    I suggest shoulder exercise to start.

    Great use of the fall palette. I wish I could wear more orange, but I just look silly in it most of the time.
    You may think you look silly but other people might not see it that way. Give it a try [​IMG] .
    One thing that sucks about living in Nashville is that I could never wear that tie without every third person wanting to talk about University of Tennessee football with me.
    You should try living in College Station, Texas home of the Fighting Texas Aggies whose school color is marron, yet their rivals of 100 years the Texas Longhorns school color is orange. Pepole see me wearing orange and I get some nasty looks but it does not bother me.
    - a ton of folks from my office went to that conference. they echoed your thoughts. - the pants and jacket are too similar in color. i think you needed more contrast to make it work.
    You are right niidawg the pants and jacket are too similar in color to make it work effectively. ___________________________________________________________________________ A couple of outfits from this week. The first one I wore to a friends house warming and the second one I wore this Sunday. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Beard is starting to get epic. Also, thank you for untucking your shirt on a weekend. It is a weekend, after all.

    +1. Also, you might want to shorten your sleeves, and get pants with a lower rise.
    [​IMG]
    Nice look. Shoes are great, too. Slim those sleeves, and you've got a winner.
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I like this too, a lot actually, but I'd choose a different color pocket square...it seems too close to the tie color.

    -knew you'd like that look...very much "you"
    -thanks, I do my best, but that not epic, this:
    [​IMG]
    is when it was most epic. I've started growing it 2 and a half months earlier this year, so by March, whoah, watch out!
    -bleachboy, yeah. Even if time is an issue, which it is with many of us, simple core activities would take you a long way.

    Hi NYR,
    Do you size up your jacket because all the stuff underneath?
    thanks


    I thought about it, but decided against it. Without the sweater, the jacket has a touch more drape, with it, you can see its slightly fitted. My tailor and I did have a conversation about it and we decided that since the fabric was so heavy, most of the time a sweater AND that jacket would be overkill.

    I think I've read the advice before, but you really should consider cuffing your trousers, I think it would add polish to your fits.. When I see plain bottom trousers like that, they just don't seem finished.. I like the pattern of the sportcoat, but I think the tie clashes somewhat..

    Monday and it is hot again. I hate heat.

    Prada suit, Polo shirt, vintage silk knit, vintage Wright Cordwainer shoes.

    Hoping to bring back some cooler fits soon.

    Have a good one.
