    Since my 2-roll-1 velvet jacket rustled everyone's jimmies, here's my take on CBD to make up for it.
    And yes, I know that wearing a pocket square with an outfit like this is technically incorrect...

    My "point" was this: [​IMG]

    And not this: [​IMG]

    But, everyone should hike their own hike.

    Coda: acridsheep could wear anything and make it look like a million bucks. He has the "touch".

    Dean shah's fit points to something that you seem to not be able to understand, which is that clothing doesn't have to adhere to a certain set of rules and regulations, like wearing a white tv fold pocket square, or any pocket square for example.

    I'm firmly on the MC side of things during the week when I post fits but can still appreciate looks from designers like yohji, dries van noten etc etc. Doesn't mean I'd wear them, but that's not the point. I also really think your post count is at the point where your commentary in this thread should be backed up with some fits of your own, think of it to school the shah's and SW&D guys if you like.

    Sheepy's shawl lapels bear but the most passing similarity to the ones Bogart sports in Casablanca. To my eye, they are as different as different can practically be.

    I find the notion of reshaping Acrid's lapels quite odd. People seem to have gone a little apeshit crazy in this forum recently concerning the extent to which an existing garment can be, or should be, altered. Lapels, "buttoning points," pockets, hems, sleeve diameters, pants leg "tapering," shoulders: it's like all these things exist only in MS Paint in the imaginary StyleForvm world and one is free to move them around at will.

    If you had the eye to restyle something successfully, you would have had the eye not to have bought something ugly or ill-fitting in the first place.

    Are you altering something that fits to fit a bit better? That makes sense.

    Are you engaging in a restyling of a garment, particularly RTW? This is nuts except in very rare cases. Toss it, and get a new one. If you can pay for a recut done by a real tailor with some chance of succeeding, you can pay for a replacement.

    @ Blasphima:
    I like hard 3 but most of SF doesn't so if you get any shit for that ignore them! Your jacket fits well but sleeves look a bit short. don't like the tie at all but there's nothing 'technically incorrect' about a pocket square with that outfit, and a white TV fold is about as conservative and inoffensive as you can get.

    Here's a new jacket I just bought with a classic Oxford shirt. I know the jeans aren't great - I am trying to slim down a little before buying new jeans and trousers. What else could i wear this with besides jeans? I was thinking navy cargo's. Not khaki chinos I know that but maybe stone or white chinos? Feedback please

    The ps is not technically incorrect. Especially a white one. The tie, on the other hand, is an atrocity and deserves to die.

    You're also rocking a little too much exposed cuff for my tastes.

    Looks good but undo your top button and get a different tie.

    Blasphima:

    suit is a little dated but IMO it's a true 3B so top two done up is fine
    tie is very dated, I'd suggest you pass it on to a charity
    pocketsquare is fine, yours is folded too wide so it's not sitting well here (too much showing)
    suit sleeves are probably 0.5-0.75 inches too short

    I've been wearing the hell out of these pants I got from inlandisland lately. It's still cold here in Sweden so corduroy works just fine.
