Damn, that is sharp, CP!
I see you are a fan of Gryffindor, Threadbearer.
Yes, I admit today's PS doesn't work well. In fact most of the time my PS doesn't work well, which is an effect of my collection consisting of only five squares, which I thought would be more versatile. I have to make huge efforts for them to look coherent, and I think I should go back to good ol' white linen or no square. Today I wanted to have mostly blue in my pocket, to contrast with the tie, and this is the PS with the most blue I have. But the rusty oranges messed it up
from last week...had some affairs to tend to, a meeting, etc. so i wore my suit
Spoiler: details and diagram
ss11 damir cap (linen + wool + cotton)
90s cdgh+ suit (pants wool, jacket wool blend i think)
uniqlo tee (cotton)
Man, I have no idea what the geometries pic is about, but I welcome the contribution. Please explain.
various parallel and intersecting lines created by the silhouette. i like to play with shapes and volumes in my fits...really doesn't belong in MC but it's a suit so just wanted to share
(yes one of the blue ones is not parallel to the others )
... but those lines have almost nothing to do with the clothes and everything to do with how you are standing.
that's ok...well the clothes sit in a certain way, whether standing or not. the vertical ones are there because i am standing, yes. but the jacket cuts away because i buttoned the top and not middle or bottom, and so along with the bag over my shoulders look to be at 60 degrees whether seated or standing or whatever. the horizontal ones are there because of exaggerated shoulders (they really stick out past my shoulders, large pads) and cuffed hems being parallel to ground. the top of the cap can alternate between the 60deg or parallel to ground, modular i guess
Fan? He's the Head Boy!
Nice, but gonna call B.S. on those lines meaning anything other than you are a human of standard form.
The cuffs and hat are the only meaningful dimensions that are the result of the exact clothing choices made. I also draw really large lines on data that I know is crap, but want to publish a paper on....
Lol well not publication quality material I'll give you that ! It was not supposed to be very serious anyway ... Just fun conceptualizations, what does a mid 90s suit in a boxy, charicaturized cut do to the form ...
Anyway, thanks for having me over MC ! See you in a while, next time I rock a suit
I liked the lines. And I see that you're saying too, particularly with the blue and green lines. If you applied the same lines to Orgetorix pic above (as an example), you'd find mostly parallel green vertical lines and few 45 degree angles.
newyorkranger nice look today!
Needed a wider spread.
