    I was all thinking "that's pretty good", until I saw the jeans.

    You've got formal up top, casual below. The whole thing is dischordant. It's like Jeremy Clarkson, or big-tech-CEO-who-wants-to-show-the-troops-he-can-be-hip-and-casual.

    Basically the only way to successfully wear jeans with a jacket is with a rough tweed, an OCBD, and no tie. Even then, it's tricky.

    Good news is, easy problem to fix!

    Darker wash denim would have looked better.

    Gorgeous shoes, southernstyle. Did I read it right that your new menswear shop is in Chapel Hill? I lived there for six years and miss it dearly and often. Will have to drop in when I'm next back in town.

    Here's me today; conservative on top with a bit of pattern in the trousers:

    The tie is a brown wool BB challis with red dots.

    It's sad, not hilarious, and it speaks volumes more about this thread than it does Stitchy's fit.

    I think you're overstating the case, Clags. I am a fan of Stitchy's adventures in SW&D, but I don't like the shoes, either. I also like that he's posting it in this thread. But even Stitchy himself would say that you post and you take your lumps.

    im all for taking lumps. shoes are excellent tho.

    in any case, my experiment in cross posting served its purpose, and that shall be quite enough.

    I think I could pull off jeans and a casual jacket with a coarse knit tie. But then again, I'd rather not.

    as in pull them off to replace them with trousers that would look good with your jacket and tie?

    My response is less to edmorel's comment and more to RTC's. The initial snark I have no real issue with. And I agree about lumps.

    I also dislike the shoes (and I like a healthy amount of SWD stuff, but I've never gotten behind such shoes), but I like the rest of the fit. SWD accepts Stitchy's MC fits (after a while). I'd like to think at some point the reverse will be true.

    Are you a singer, or is it just a fun name? I was wondering if you were dressing for gigs or for business.

    That would be ideal, yes.

    It's a relic of a long-dead dream to sing opera from my college days, but I've used it as a handle on a couple of forums for awhile and didn't have anything better in mind. My more mundane real-life job is teaching history at a university. The healthy percentage of academics posting to this thread led me to start dressing better and--now that I have a "camera" in the form of a phone--to join in.

    I like the x-post, but we're also allowed to critique it. Constructive criticism is more helpful than snark, but plenty of CM fits get snark as well. I used to wear a lot of street wear when I was younger, so I appreciate the other side of the forum.

    Having said that, I wouldn't have worn those white shoes back then. Either the last should be a little sleeker, or they shouldn't be white. In this form they remind me of those Birkenstock clogs before they became fashionable. They were frequently seen on nurses or people who had given up on caring about their dress altogether. I do like the rest of stitchy's outfit though!

    I should probably add a disclaimer that my tastes have changed considerably since then and that I'm out of touch with current street wear scene. For all I know those shoes might be from the current hype brand, which I suppose would make them a little more acceptable.

    Thanks for the comments, everyone. I guess I was going for a soft, low contrast look, but perhaps that is not something to aim for. I imagine this would have been better received with a navy blazer/better square. Next time!
