SPOILERS, fellas. SPOILERS.
Thank you for the kind comments. In the spoiler, I believe that five pictures will be worth 5,000 words of instruction, as to how I fold my pocket squares.
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
Post of the week.
How would one properly store their pocket square? Hang it or fold it back?
First post in ages as I'm currently on a 3 month summer holiday, so I haven't had many occasions to dress up for.
This was worn last week for my girlfriends mum's birthday.
Jacket: Jack Wills
Shirt: Ralph Lauren
Pocket square: Aspinal of London
Trousers: Farah vintage
Socks: Paul Smith
Shoes: Russel & Bromley
I picked up the jacket for £29 down from £229! I need to get the sleeves shortened, no idea why i was wearing them like that, just felt like it!
Was lucky enough to pick up a fair few tickets to the Olympic Games in my hometown London!
Here's me and my family outside the olympic stadium ( I'm on the right) and then inside for the 100m final!
Belt: American Apparel
First outfit really looks good!!
Good modern fit, beautiful colours, sophisticated smart casual. I also like that PS as lot with that outfit.
Second outfit also fits you well.
My main criticism is that I would change the shirt for a solid colour one, and I easily prefer the shirt in your first outfit because hmmm... too many stripes together and not enough difference in scale.
Then the milky pink tie that also makes a strange iffy little knot, I personally think you could carry off a tie that is a whole lot bolder and modern and shiny (silk) , or even more subdued with good texture, but with a bit more bulk so it makes a really good knot. Use up more 'real estate' in the tie knot area.
Pocket Square, I would probably stick to white cotton because of the pinstripes. rather than gingham?? (is it).
I realise you trying to do pattern on pattern on pattern. To me it seems all too much.
yes, but TTO is winner of the awesome vote. he has awesome swag standing, so its ok.
Kobe, would you be seen out and about looking like this guy. His clothes all look like they shrunk in the wash.
What does GQ know about style anyway. I think you should seriously consider burning the magazine.
If you want to look flash with a touch of class, I recommend the peacock thread for inspiration.
gq is part of what is wrong with this thread.
Only good for the hot women in the Brit Edition.
GQ AMURIKA! Y U NO HAVE HOT BRITISH WIMMENZ
Thanks so much, I will be trying that tomorrow.
Just because your sleeves have cuffs, does not mean you have to use them.
Are the shoes from Corthay?
