    In other words, these are the people, or the people who like these peoples' looks, telling MCers that they don't know how to dress, etc.

    SW&D people get rid of stuff before the 10 year mark - too dated by then.




    I like the suit, Holdfast. Is the chalkstripe purple?

    Why don't the mods do that? Have a WAYWRN where only certain people can post and discuss. Fuck the 99%, let em' whine.

    Wishing a happy vernal equinox for all, be they SW&D or MC.

    Also, I liked much of what KingJulien posted from the SW&D HOF thread. But, of course, many of them fit within the spectrum of MC, so that's not surprising.

    I absolutely agree. What I am saying is that it's not just standard MC WAYWRN without the tie or either the North-eastern US or Italian-style upper class casual that is affected by so many here. And yes, I tend towards the 'heritage / workwear influenced' stuff when I am not on university business. Mind you, I do actually also have a smallholding with a barn, vegetables, fruit trees and chickens so some of the stuff is also being worn functionally as actual workwear. But I don't really have the lifestyle to accomodate the more radical or couture type of fashion clothing, unless I dressed this way to work, to which I have no fundamental objection but it would require an entirely new wardrobe and sense of myself... so a pretty tall order.

    FTFY.
    In my little SF advice column, one of the things that I poorly try get across is that it is useful for beginners to examine on what point of the informal/formal spectrum their life lies, and taking cues from that. I feel (without being able to offer convincing evidence) that the current MC crowd might benefit from a toning down of the level of formality in their coat and tie looks. You, in contrast, have thought about this. More power to you...which takes me to...
    ...that's exactly it. When I see those SW&D "fits" in suburban back lawns or in the homes of parents, it really doesn't work for me. [​IMG][​IMG] The MC crowd has its own similar sins arife, of course.

    I guess this would be a reverse-cherry-pick?

    1. Jamieson is a red herring. That was an old "MC" fit cross-posted over there. He can basically do no wrong, but I'm not a fan of the hat...which is as ubiquitous in your selections as are...oddly...raincoats.

    2. The guy with the slick hair and peacoat looks suspiciously like a Sartorialist pic. Is it really a SW&D member or even an SF member?

    3. Berlin Report always looks great, which I hope any mens shop owner would. (There's that hat again, though.) A lot of what he wears falls into the category that Monkey and I were discussing.

    Everyone else that you posted looks either really awful, or if not, has a look that if found on a dude approaching 30 or passing it, would look rather unfortunate. From tween to twenties, awful to great. Beyond that, I don't want to see a mktitsworth with fades indicating the contents of his front pockets.

    Is this really the best that you could find? And what's with the raincoats...is humidity an issue in SW&D these days?

    :)
