    Man that's nothing, if you go to any beach in Paris they tan naked. Maybe it's like that in the US 2?

    Wore this to a kind of informal party this weekend. I am just a teenager so I could really wear whatever I wanted from just a shirt and pants to a suit. I chose the latter.
    Dark blue suit, light blue and white striped shirt (very, very small stripes), knitted green tie, light blue PS, brown derbys.

    Thank you. I took them with an Ipod Touch actually. I (it's my dad's) have a great camera at home but the pictures of me on that camera are not focused on my clothes but the party :)

    Potato, sandwich, and cheese cameras crack me up.

    I disagree as well. I usually don't get into these type of discussions because I don't wanna sound like a know-it-all when I'm decades behind some of the guys hanging out here.

    1. This is really just opinion, if you look at some of the classic style icons such as Agnelli, Grant and Astaire they were all fans of DB + BD. In Europe we tend to avoid BD when going for formal business wear, but it's not an overall "rule".
    2. This I agree on, shirt sleeves would look nice if they were a bit shorter.
    3. Nah, looks good on a young guy with a slim build. The cloth does not look like it's straining anywhere.
    4. No need really, even though I (almost) always like the look of a PS. There are no formal/informal guidelines that state the need of always wearing a PS.
    5. It can be done both ways:
    Cary Grant liked his 6x2 unbuttoned:

    Where as Prince Charles likes the buttons done:

    I'm trying to figure out why I don't like this as much I normally would. I like all the elements a lot, and the colour combination is very classic. I think maybe the shoes might be too dark and formal for the (?)jeans... something lighter and a bit more casual, or a slightly more formal trouser and I think this would really rock. (Personally, I also think your jacket is a little short too, but I know my jacket length preference is not shared by all/many).



    Monday, and a very busy day it turned out to be...

    Why do you do this? The last couple days I've been breaking my flippin brains over this...Usually when people pull this shit, they do this to build some forum rep for some sort of long term scam or to just live out some form of obsessive validation neurosis.

    But you, you seem to be a very nice and friendly person and some of the outfits you posted on here are obviously really you. And what you are wearing looks really good. You don't need to deceive us with some fancy black tie pictures weirdly cropped from other peoples Facebook page to get our internet love.

    Please enlighten me. I'm just doing this because I cherish this community very much even though I haven't been on here for very long and simply because of the 1% chance of you trying to pull some scam on B&S and hurting the reputation of this forum.



    This is the real Sir F. Keep doing this please. Don't be a Sir Foney.
