1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    Is safe to assume the aforementioned loudness comments were in response to my shirt and tie? Are incongruous patterns a default definition of “loud"? I guess I might have to keep that in mind….or not. What I am trying to accomplish is a look that is not as "conservative" as the deemed successful CBD standards maintained in this thread, but without being...."loud" or otherwise clownish. While I enjoy scrolling this thread, I do find that attempts to deviate from the accepted standards are frowned upon (No surprise there..) thus, I am trying to find my own way. I don't have the body shape, the youth, or work atmosphere to really make an independent statement of fashion like some do, but I am working on it…

    BTW - I think my shirt/tie combo today, while not perfect, is one of my new favorites to come out of my closet. :slayer:

    ETB, have you ever though about getting some suits with slightly wider lapels and some more texture? Flannel, linen, birdseye, etc. would work much better with your more out there ties than shiny worsted suits IMHO.

    I'd love to TBH. And yes, I've looked into it. Problem is, nowhere in Dublin / Ireland sells anything like that. I'd have to go bespoke, which I can't afford. My other option (which I seriously considered) was ordering online from SuitSupply, but not being able to try it on first is the issue. I'm 6'5" and broad, so fits are difficult for me for the most part.

    I'd love a "Lapo"-style wide lapel suit.

    I knew it! Looks better with Ewan McGregor's face, but even then it's only slightly better than an average American male.

    What I wore for "Spy Wednesday".

    Thanks, everyone, for all the thumbs up for yesterday's post. It must have been due to @Sugarbutch's tie!

    I understand where you're coming from. I'm living in Scotland at the moment, and there aren't many options here either. SuSu has free shipping/returns, so it might be worth a try. Refunds are pretty fast, so you wouldn't miss your money for long.

    I'm 6'4" and a similar build to you, I think, ETB and I've found SuSu that fits. I have the benefit of a store in Philadelphia, but I've also bought online. The measurements they provide for each style have been very useful. Not sure about to Ireland, but they offer free shipping and returns in the US. Worth a try.

    I tried on a bunch and I liked the Napoli and York. I have a SoHo jacket. I have a couple of weddings later in the summer so I'm looking forward to picking some more interesting suits up for those.

    Docker's looks nice, although I think the jacket and pants are too tight.
