    Really? Can a 3 button suit not look good?

    Btw, sorry for not being on subject but wanted to address this.

    dont take it too hard. you look pretty good actually. room for improvement, but not complete disaster for sure.

    stick around and see what you can learn. certainly the snark can go too far, but often it is not meant with ill will, just a bit of messing around. even the most veteran of posters does not escape a bit of snark for their clothing choices from time to time. over time, you will learn who is just yankin your chain, and who is being a jerk, and who to ignore, and who to listen to.

    good luck! :cheers:

    yes. depending on the build of the wearer, and how high or low the button stance is, it can be bad.

    There is some good snark in this.

    Somewhat casual. Was pretty cold in MI today and wanted to stay casual but still dress up for my grandmother's birthday (75!). Hope everyone had a good weekend and, for those affected by the storm, I hope the recovery is going well and you are safe and sound.

    PS, yes, they are jeans and I wore brown suede chukkas.

    He had originally mentioned being unhappy (or at least less than sure) about his tie knot. Though yeah, it's usually more about knot type than knot tying ability. I think most people, even noobs, know how to tie a proper knot. (On a personal note AS, I wore a Pratt a few days ago)

    Holdfast, I think, would very much agree with this statement. And not just because of his profession.

    You have to take the belittlement along with the constructive criticism, I'm afraid. My stance has always been: if you still like an outfit after it catches SF flak, then the outfit is a keeper because it is a genuine reflection of your personal taste. If the outfit suddenly starts looking like crap after the SFers explain why it looks like crap, that's when you start looking for something new.

    Now on that note....

    Gentleman, I need your help. I had been wanting a houndstooth jacket; this is something I picked up a month or two ago. Needed some serious reconstruction (sleeves lengthened, waist taken in, shoulders taken in, conversion to soft shoulder)...ended up costing as much as the jacket (used Hugo Boss). I get home and I realize I have no fucking idea how to match a tie with a green houndstooth. It's halfway through the day and I've gotten two compliments...but from people who have less than a stellar eye for style.

    I'm spoilering this because I am very unhappy with it (I wore it today mostly out of stubbornness). So yes, what fabrics and colors would work here?


    Ignore the ps...it goes with the light blue shirt and the navy trou. And I'm still very much a ps noob (I'll figure them out as I go along). My concern is the tie/jacket combination)

    If the colors are accurate, I think you did fine.

    Alright. Good to know guys. They are accurate. I think I'm just not used to such color combinations.

    Darker brown would've been better though, right? I need to get some darker brown ties anyway. As soon as November is over and I'm free from Man of Lint's watchful eye, they will be purchased.
