You show up the day you get shouted out by PTO? Don't blame ya.
^ That's how you wear a fedora.
Full body shots included today.
Gant navy Blazer
Light blue herringbone shirt from Bruun & Stengaade
Tie from Artesanos Camesieros
PS - Breuer
Flannell trousers from Oscar Jacobson
Monks - C&J.
Is the shirt of a certain "type"? Or are all Borrelli shirts standard fitted with high collars?
This looks so sleek. I love the arrogance of that pocket square! Rarely, do I see a beefy turtleneck sweater; it brings to mind the word "sophistication". The only thing that I would tamper with are the socks/shoes. Maybe a laced shoe? Black? Just curious--to what profession did you serve as a intern?
Not sure if all of them are, but most of the ones I have are, yes.
Allright, thanks! Without too much flattering, your fits are definitely what I am aiming for, so thanks for the extra information.
Yeah, it's busy, but I think it works. Couldn't get the long shot today because I do those outside and it was raining. Thanks for your thoughts, sb.
I call bullshit. Yes, it's a lot of patterns, but they're all quite different and are also of varied scales. A blue shirt would have been better, granted, but even a striped blue shirt would have worked with this fit provided the stripes weren't any more conspicuous than the ones in the white shirt I ended up wearing.
You've had a fair amount of criticism for your fits, but the truth is you have more natural style than most posters here.
I can be serious, too
Thinking of giving the new suit a litlle more drape, like this:
Suit - HF
Shirt - Thomas Pink
Tie - Hackett
PS - RLPL
Cufflinks - The London Badge & Button Co.
Shoes - Fratelli Peluso, via Barney's NYC
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
Chest clearly too small, the lapel is belling out.
Personally I would ask think the jacket is too short but that is less important.
I think that this outfit is fairly stylish and the trousers look one whole lot better than the jeans you were wearing with the previous outfit.
It may be fashionable to not have your hem set / sewn to the correct length in your jeans by a tailor, but never stylish.
It may also be fashionable to wear jeans with much more formal jacket / shirt / tie / PS, but seldom stylish.
I think that the guys who post on here try to dress stylishly rather than fashionably. So when you try to dress fashionably instead of stylishly, the guys tell you it looks bad, and you call it hate.
I guess I am trying to say that most fashion is not stylish, and never will be, in the same vein, most stylish outfits are not fashionable and never will be.
Also, you may have a beaufitul pair of shoes, or tie, that if assembled into an outfit properly, may become part of a stylish outfit....
where as, incorrectly assembled, well...
for instance, why would you choose a bright pink PS to wear with this conservative outfit, and why would you have your trousers tapered so much that they look like skinny fit jeans. I mean, are you trying to tell everyone that you have matchstick legs. Why don't you just get it over with and have them made skin tight complete with knee bulges then you could look 'real cool', but a bit of an ass fashionwise and not at all stylish.
What are you trying to achieve, skinny fit fashionable formal jean type trousers, or stylish suit trousers.
Your jackets are so short that they don't usually cover your backside or your crotch for that matter, and it is so tight that it splays apart at the front that even if it was long enough, it still wouldn't cover your crotch.
I go on... but i don't think you understand the difference between style and fashion TBH.
Back to a more blah (normal!) look, today. I need to size down in my shirt collars. My neck has shrunk.
I need to clean my desk. The cat, certainly, is not going to help.
now thats bs
