    Yesterday's self-imposed homework assignment was to assemble an outfit in which all sliders were on the 10 side of the Country-City scale. Today I tried going the other way but quickly realized that an All-1 outfit for me would be polypropylene shirt, nylon pants, polyester fleece sweater, SmartWool socks, and hiking boots.
    So where do the pieces in today's outfit fall on the F. Corbera Continuum? (I'm especially curious about the shoes because, although they are heavily brogued, they're still bals, not bluchers.)

    Maybe a more earth toned tie would have put this into the "country" zone but I like the colors all the same.

    I think that if the predominant pieces (jacket, trousers) were browns/tans as opposed to greys it would read more 'country', but I only say that considering that you are trying to get as far to that side of the continuum as you can today. I think what you're wearing looks pretty good regardless of the continuum.

    Not feeling the tie. Something red or brown, perhaps?

    Awesome look! What kind of fabric is the suit made of? Also loving the tie, although I'm not a fan of orange, in general.

    With very few exceptions - this thread is a nightmare

    I need your help. Please- a young guy with a limited wardrobe.

    And I do know that's a poor imitation of a three-piece. Dad had it for his tuxedo (yes, I know), and while I was able to point out his errors, I am in need of more professional assistance.

    You know you're a man of prominence when your nightmares consist of men with middling taste in clothing.

    They are impossible to obtain. What does this mean for us? Doom?

    Doom? Look on the positive side. They are impossible to obtain, perhaps, but it is easy to pay for them. In advance.

    Mr. Dot Guy- you are well known, are you not? Could I have your opinion?
