    I have no use for tassel loafers at all, regardless of context, but his outfit, taken as a whole, was outstanding. The loafers and the tie are where his personality shone through and helped the impression that he was wearing the suit, not vice-versa.

    Gentelmen, please don't waste anymore time on the loafers - I off course did not put on loafers to get out and walk in the snow, really!

    I was dressed for an other occasion; an indoor one to boot, when the opportunity to take a few shots came up - and guess;it had started to snow in the meantime!

    Please give me enough credit to be able to choose proper footwear for different climatic conditions :) :bigstar:

    Butler, I give you plenty of credit. Suit is dope. It's not often we see bespoke on this board, so thank you.

    I'm sure you have a boring grey worsted; please post the next time you wear it so we can placate the minions.

    The linen is a deliberate step back from more colorful efforts as I try to become more comfortable with a base of sartorial knowledge on which I can build. Señor Corbera has been most instructive in his thread(s).

    I keep meaning to get around to that! :lol:


    Thanks, gents. I am not worthy. :worship:

    I know that I could never pull off wearing a sweater like that, but you make it look good. With that sport coat, you could probably wear anything and make it look good. How many more days until the "blessed event"?

    It's not for everyone. So, as someone else said to me here on another fit issue - I think that was around my dislike of the whole New England thing - if you feel you have to have it explained to you, it probably isn't for you! For me, it also seems a particularly British form of slightly eccentric (I could use the word, 'dandified' but it's not quite right here) fine tailoring. It is the combination of perfectly made clothes in a very traditional mode, but in a completely FU pattern, worn by someone who has clearly transcended conventional critique in terms of how one 'should' dress. Butler pulls it off, in other words - many others might not be able to; others still might never want to try. And since I am particularly British and very much attuned to the possibilities of this manner of dressing, it appeals to my aesthetic sensibility too.

    Off topic, and feel free to ignore if this unsolicited comment, but are you always that hunched over, or is it just a bad photo? Try some gentle stretching exercises; it helped me a little. Otherwise you might get some back pain later on in life. Re: the jacket, I'm not a fan of concave lapels, but if you like them, the general fit will probably be OK once tailored and pressed.

    I already posted some feedback using the like button, but I just want to credit you with having improved your look by a country mile since first posting. The improvement is dramatic, and in a relatively short space of time too.

    Obviously the tassels are just there for displaying the overall look and aren't going to be worn for ages outside in the snow. But more than that, sometimes a cool outfit is just a cool outfit, and this definitely qualifies and deserves acknowledgement.

    Nice look, obviously. Out of curiousity, what weave are the suit and tie. Both look very "dry"/"hard" to the touch (forgive my lack of finding better adjectives) but I wonder if that's just the lighting you happened to catch?







    Had to get dressed in under five minutes this am after suddenly realising I got an appointment time wrong by half an hour. Only just got there on time. Photo taken a bit later in the day, so slightly more crumpled than usual...
