    Just curious, who takes these pictures? lol.

    I take all of my own pictures and try not to bother people I know in person about photography or fashion since it's not a hobby of most people.

    Lufty is correct. After my last, rather disastrous post, I came to the epiphany that to submit postings here was, implicitly, seeking approval, and that, ultimately, the only approval for my fits that I need is my own.

    There have been many constructive criticisms of my postings here, and I have taken them to heart, much to the profit of my alterations tailor (I am much more conscious of fit now than I was prior to posting here, and I've also lost some 10 lbs. since the beginning of the year). For that, I thank you all, collectively.

    However, it has become obvious to me that I will never practice the "house style", and that there are elements of my fits that invoke the psychosexual anxieties of clothing-obsessed but otherwise straight men, from which they need to distance themselves. Anything too colorful, too shiny or with too bold a pattern seems to make at least some of the locals crazy, and when I indulge in them, I get smacked - sometimes with an aesthetic basis for the smacking, sometimes not.

    Simply put, posting here has ceased, at least for the present, to be fun, hence I am in self-imposed exile at That Other Website (though I have always cross-posted between the two sites since starting to post here actively).


    While your style is not my style, Crusty, don't be spineless. Posting over at AAAC is a waste, if you ask me. You are one of, what, 4 guys that post pics over there? At least here you will receive criticism and advice from people who actually know what they are talking about, rather than a round of back slapping from those who don't. You don't have to post every day, but throw up some fits that you feel good about once or twice a week and see how that goes.

    Dressing up for an art gallery opening tonight. The Drake tie itself is 1/3 of the suit's costs [​IMG]

    Wow, that is quite a suit!

    Oooooo! This post gives me hope that the long-awaited "Voxsartoria Cross-Indexed Relational Study Between SF and AAAC with Analyses of The Subtle Influences of LL" project is still alive, and, dare we hope? nearing completion. [​IMG]

    Lovely casual outfit! As many have already said, you look a lot better in slimmer clothes.
    Nice casual look, doc.

    Thanks fellows. Variety is the spice of life.

    This looks classy and comfortable. I'd have picked a solid square but I quite like this.

    I actually tried it with a solid white linen; didn't do quite do it for me. YMMV, of course.

    Still a bit formal. How about this?

    o/o, you have the capacity to both delight and terrify me, as I have a sneaking suspicion that my clothes will eventually evolve in that very direction as I gain the experience that comes with time... [​IMG]

    Day out at Ascot on Tuesday. Picked the right day weather-wise [​IMG]

    Very nice "casual" alternative to morning dress, suitable for outside the Royal Enclosure while still being smarter than the average punter.

    Some pseudo-southern trad

    Like the bow-tie.

    <re: sugarbutch's look>
    nothing wrong with that fit and I would not get any waist suppression on it. my only suggestion would be for wider lapels on your frame and I think a 3roll2 jacket will have an elongating effect on you.


    Wider lapels yes. I'd prefer seeing a slightly lower buttoning point rather than a 3-2 necessarily, though we're both noticing the same truncating effect of the current look.

    Yesterday's Ascot atire as featured in this morning's newspapers:

    "Ascot fight on Ladies Day stuns horse racing fans"


    Funny stuff. The local radio this morning said that in light of this, police have been granted the power to confiscate alcohol at will during the meet. I suspect local plod will be swilling Grande Annee tonight...

    Dressing up for an art gallery opening tonight.

    I will join you in wacky suit-land:

    Sounds fascinating. Is it longitudinal? Will there be charts and graphs? In all seriousness, is it real?

    Kind of reminds me - Is Reevolving performing a sociological study with the shoes over $500 thread?

    I think he grew weary of hearing the same things over and over again, often in curt, crass posts. I believe you may find him in the forum formerly known as Ask Cruiser About Clothes. But now that Cruiser has entered self-exile, I'm uncertain what to call it now. [​IMG]

    that would be a shame.

    btw ive always wanted to say, the disparity between your dress and that of your avatar cracks me up every time

    Wrapping up suit week with a gloomy rainy Friday.

    is that pattern subtle or bold irl, the pics are conflicting.

    also is suitsnoozefest over yet?

    well i for one like having you around, and take no issue with your style. honestly i cant say i blame you. getting kicked repeatedly is certainly enough to put a man down. maybe take a break for a few weeks, but dont leave us. youre a nice fellow.
