    Very nice casual wear indeed, I see you are strolling in the beautiful Observatorielunden! May I ask what pant you are wearing?

    Would it surprise you if i said that i'm not sure? As I have two quite similar pair of pants. These could be either a really cheap brand called Riley, or they might be a pair of RL pants.

    Splendid! Please provide details on the lovely tie and SC.
    The tie is Rose & Born, a Swedish brand. The SC is made by a finnish tailor called Kruunu.

    I like.

    Thank you [​IMG]

    Very nice until I saw the shoes. I don't think they work quite well here. Of course, your personality may compensate for it in real life, something I can't judge from the photo.

    Thank you.
    Well, I had a feeling that they might not be in everyone's favour. I do like them though. They're very informal of course, but lovely to walk in. Personally I think the overall attire is casual enough to not clash totally with the shoes.

    They're similar, for sure; suede chukka boots with a moderately thick crepe sole. I think I've read somewhere (maybe here on SF!) that the ones in Bullitt were Sanders. These ones are Zegna, main line I think. I've had them a few months or so now and worn them quite a bit; love them.

    Ah, I've seen those IRL a few months ago. They looked great; not in my size though (a pity, because I saw them at a Zegna outlet store). Very comfortable shoe, I imagine. Nice and nonchalant vibe, btw (the whole outfit).

    You shouldn't button your bottom button.

    Nice. Details on the maker of the suit, please?

    I thought he did that because he's adding a third button.

    I prefer to call them trousers, but thanks for your good action [​IMG]

    I didn't want to start a new thread and technically, when I took the pics,it WAS WIWWRN so... Would I be too much of a label whore if I bought these jeans? [​IMG] Obviously, the Rubinacci tie and non-slim fit dress shirt were not the best choices for these pants. And brown is for...well, you know. [​IMG] Maybe I should wait for the next markdown. I'm approaching my ideal weight with about 10 lbs to go. Timing is everything?

    What is actually the question? the fit or this jeans in general?
    Based on the remark quoted below, I'm going with the label whore question for a hundred, Alex. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] This isn't working for me. The tie's not right at all.
    Last night, prior to the Summer Fete at the Metropolitan Museum, and this morning, facing life after a mass quantity of wine, looking at a day promising thunderstorms by afternoon (hence, no suede).
    Last night: [​IMG] This morning: [​IMG] [​IMG][/spoiler]

    [​IMG] to mass quantities of wine. The blackwatch cummerbund is an interesting choice. This is your best seersucker look yet. I like the more somber shoes with the GTH suit.
    First time wearing this jacket as a SC instead of the full suit. 70/30 cashmere silk. I think it works, what about you?
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG][/spoiler]

    Yes, this works well. Looks great as a SC. I enjoy this tame, yet still Spooriffic fit.
    Casual today...
    [​IMG]
    [/spoiler]

    I would like this more either 1) without the sweater; or 2) without the coat.
    Sleeves need + .50"
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG][/spoiler]

    Yes. I am also not a fan of that tie, but that's another matter altogether. The crease is spectacular - do you own a press?
    I got the memo. [​IMG]
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Awesome. Out of curiosity, two questions. 1) How tall are you; 2) what size coat do you wear?
    [​IMG] More... [​IMG] [​IMG] Divots are movement-related, I promise. The turtled shirt sleeve results from armhole mismatch between the coat (high) and shirt (relatively low). This BB Regent cut also has some narrow sleeves!
    This coat looks to not fit you well. Too snug around the buttoning point, wrinkling in crotch, relatively closed quarters. Perhaps alterations can correct these outstanding issues?
    Alden saddles, perchance?
    Nah, old Florsheims.
    To tailor tomorrow: longer pants, third button, longer sleeves.
    [​IMG]
    Wow. The buttoning point on that is several inches too high; is it becoming a 3/2?
    Ok, first post here. Go gentle [​IMG]
    Well, me (minus the shoes) [​IMG] Closer up, the tie is trying to go Dilbert on me due to me just having played around with my dogs [​IMG] Shoes fit for a summer stroll with the mrs and the dogs (navy blue Sebago's) [​IMG]
    Looks quite good, except shoes are too casual for the rest. Even penny loafers would have worked, just one degree more formal.
    Great fit today, lufty. I really think you need sleeker lasts on your shoes, it would improve your looks significantly.
    When I start making bank, you can be sure that will happen. Until then, classic blobby american lasts.
    Some very good looks lately, no time to comment on those at the moment. Today's pics after a day at work and few hours driving...
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    This is fun. Two nitpicks - 1) lose the socks (at least with this outfit, while wearing loafers); 2) lengthen the trou by an inch.

    Thanks for the feedback, Lufty. I think whatever pulling you're seeing at the button is because my arm was in motion when the timer went off (I set up the camera quite far away and used the zoom to eliminate as much distortion of proportion as possible). I can actually get my fist between my chest and the coat at the button. I agree that the quarters are relatively closed, but they're wide open compared to some of my other suits! Not sure about the crotch wrinkling, maybe the wrinkles from the last wearing didn't fall out and they could use a press.

    Thank you for the kind remarks - they are much appreciated.

    Sure thing, man.

    My dad had a tie like that"”my brother and I called it the clown tie and we bought him a bar stripe red tie to replace it. [​IMG]
