my pleasure. thanks for answering. ill see if i can find it on their site.
I agree about less break on the trousers.
I think the shirt and pocket square are just fine (if it were a business event, I would say a white, straight-fold would be better...but what he has is very nice for evening).
Sorry sir, but I really don't like that tie at all.
You are really rocking that take-no-prisoners three-piece though. I bet you stopped traffic in it last night.
I do understand your wife...
Albert Hal is not amused.
Obviously I have much to learn, as learning is always an evolving process. I enjoy posting here and getting constructive criticism, I always want to tweak things here and there while at the same time maintaining a little of my own style. With that being said I'd never wear the previous fit (or the majority) of my fits to a board meeting. Thanks for the criticism and help.
I post here to learn, what happened to being constructive?
NOBD: The simplicity and consistency of your clothing is killer.
Here is a taste of what I wore to work this past Friday:
If you didn't look so badass I'd whine about the tie but great look for you.
was wondering the same. looks beautiful.
Yes. Watch is Breguet; suit is bespoke (Raphael); shoes are bespoke (Vass); tie is Carlo Franco; pocket square is Pink; shirt Jos A Bank; cufflinks vintage sterling guilloche enamel.
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
This begs the question... If Albert Hal can't wear it, who can?
Actually, he can wear it. He chooses for other reasons not to.
This is the first post that I have seen of yours, so I'm not sure if someone has commented to this effect already, but I really love your mix of traditional, respectable clothing and indecorous tattoo placement. I think that sort of dichotomy has a lot of potential from an aesthetic standpoint, and you take full advantage of that and do it well. Obviously, the majority of the people on this forum are not in any social position to attempt that look (myself included), and some may still be opposed to it, but I think if you have already staked your claim on your patch of society, you have managed to do it while looking your best.
On a somewhat unrelated note, are you familiar with the band Bayside? Maybe it's just the neck tattoos, but you remind me of the singer, Anthony Raneri.
The watch chain has a compass attached at one end (as was found among my late father's effects after his death in 2004), and a modern replacement pocket watch on the other (a present from my current partner). The chain originally had a small gilded penknife attached, but unwise packing got it confiscated by the TSA in 2005 - grrrrr.
the plus fours are sorta like the alien symbiote in spider man? Scary.
"Happy birthday! You wear it well"
"enjoy your birthday."
"Love how the socks pick up the tie and suspenders. Great! Happy birthday!"
"Happy birthday; sure you'll get better service on the strength of that stripe alone!"
"Great throughout! Would've added some pink colour to get the tie to blend in more - still, great job"
"Happy birthday, crusty!"
"You will probably be the best-dressed man at Daniel...and that is saying something...Happy Birthday!"
"Happy Natal Day! Sharp "banker" stripes! Impeccably shined shoes."
"looks great! Happy Bday!"
"Happy Birthday! And if I look as good at 57, I'll be quite happy."
"Well done, enjoy the tasting menu"
Thanks SF (a new me)
"Happy birthday, and you look great."
"Happy B-Day? Are you comfortable with the jacket length?"
"Have a great day, upr_crust. Nice ensemble, too "
"Happy Birthday Upr_Crust, have a great day!"
Thank you gentlemen, one and all, for the comments and birthday good wishes. For the record, the second suit that I bought from New & Lingwood was a short, not a regular, as this one was, Owen Meany, so maybe the jacket is a little long (I'm 5' 9", down from 5' 10" at my tallest). As for dinner, I made do with the regular 3-course menu at Daniel, which was quite enough food, thanks, and an excellent bottle of Vouvray. As for the suit's appearance, wearing that suit gets me a lot of attention from sales staff in every emporium on Madison or Fifth Ave., from Brooks to Barney's - a very useful thing, at times.
