    I was in London going out at night to a party/social gathering of sort, not sure if that's that kind of situation you mean.

    Haha the chain was for my keys I swear I have no pocket watch or monocle, but it does look a bit steampunk I suppose. I just hate rummaging for my keys at night.

    Couple easy fixes for this Robs- first, u could change the buttons on the SC to make it look a little less like an orphaned suit jacket;

    2nd, if u really want to keep the tie a double FIH knot might deal with the excess back length, but better would be to ditch the tie and avoid the schizo formal top-half, casual bottom look.

    Nice shirt, and pic [​IMG]

    That's how Four-in-Hand knots are supposed to be tied. They aren't supposed to be straight and symmetrical. Really, if that's what you thought was wrong, you really have no place making any critique.

    I'm not sure why you're going on about Guy Pearce or the 1890s - or selvedge denim as if you discovered it or even as if I had said anything about it - or why you think I said you had the worst taste on the forum (I didn't), but then your entire post was a spectacularly bizarre rant which I'll just ignore because you simply seem to have a problem with both comprehension and self-control.

    Dear Pliny,

    Thanks for your comments but I'm aware of how the outfit was put together. The jacket has the original mother of pearl buttons and the sport coat itself is an odd jacket from ISAIA AW12 collection so I can't see in any way that that it could look like an orphaned suit jacket. The ties knot and length is chosen to be a bit sprezzatura this day so that explains the length, I like it but some doesn't and you seems do be one of them. The pants are a pair of cord pants from Lubiam and are also causal and I think they fit very well with the jacket that's also a quite casual with it's shorter length and patch pockets. That's my story about the oufit, hope it explains how I thought when I put it together.

    Well, take it or leave it. If this is how you respond to good hearted criticism then fine, be on everyone's ignore list until one of the forum mods ban you.

    I'm open to people giving their opinions on my pics, it's kind of what this thread is all about. Yes, sometimes there might even be people giving you completely non-constructive critique, like saying your fits would not be better at 2am in a bar restroom. If you can't take things like that without starting a vendetta with the entire forum you should move on (as several people have suggested that you should do).

    EFV, if I recall, you recently posted one of the more successful tie + jeans fit. I know 38R goes for that sort of thing.


    38R, the comment about your collar and knot were not made by me--that's what I meant by you being mistaken. I hadn't seen the fit being referenced until you tagged me in a post. I'm not one to get worked up about collars, but I agree that your knot could have been better tied, especially if it's a half-windsor, which is supposed to be neat and centered. A properly tied 4IH is supposed to be a bit askew. I alternate between both, generally based on which knot the tie is most suited for. That tie actually makes a handsome HW, but since it was for the Italian CBD challenge, I went with what the Italians seem to prefer.

    On collars with less spread, half windsors give the impression of a perfectly symmetrical knot. The second is another FIH, which isn't as nicely tied as the other you posted, in part due to chance an in part it's an inferior tie (Suit Supply, which isn't bad for the money).

    Also, for all of our collective good, please never engage Foo in a conversation. I have imagined infinity, and it leaves me cold.

    Thank you very much for your kind words, really. Yes, the jacket is truly unique. He has made my tailor Mimmo Pirozzi. And do you think that jacket is not perfect because it has already two years. In fact I brought her ironing while then I tried the other.

    Shamelessy, at the end of the final hymn at church, this morning, I inserted the first four measures of “The Victors” into the bass line.

    I've been posting on tumblr and the German styleforum, but I'd love to get some more inspirations and knowledge out of you guys. So here are a couple recent fits (unfortunately, it's the same suit).

    Comments and criticism are greatly appreciated.

    I have already ordered a new camera, so until it arrives I can only post cellphone pictures.

    Apologies, if I have missed any posting guidelines. I need to get used to posting on SF.

    This thread, at the moment (last 24 hours or so) hasn't been too focused on clothing unfortunately. Might I suggest the following for inspiration?

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/381083/waywrn-composite-20-thumb-minimum/0_20

    With regards to your fits:

    The first is not something I'd repeat. The tie and shirt stripes are way too close in scale, so it appears super busy. Ideally you want the shirts stripes and the size of the tie's pattern to be very different in size. This the lack of color contrast in the tie and shirt.

    I like the second.
