^My tongue was slightly in cheek. But a guy can dream, can't he? Can dream that one day the lion will lay down w/ the lamb (and not necessarily to do what those guys did next. Not that there's anything wrong with that).
Thanks for all the kind words.
Thanks for taking the time to comment - it seems difficult for me to go all monochrome blue with a blue PS too, hence the flash of red, but I appreciate your thoughts.
Fighting must be a form of flirting. WTF is everyone so hostile? Just post some pictures of WYAWN.
Spoo didn't seem to be offended by Iamatt's comments and it was his outfit that he was commenting on. Maybe it was harsh, but, jesus, he posted the pic on a public internet forum and gets praise all day long. There was some substance to his post that I am sure spoo will consider in the future. I agree, there could be a more civil delivery/approach, and the whole lamenting the old days thing is annoying if you don't choose to contribute photos anymore (and just complain), but could we please get the thread back on track and post some substance. Please....
To that end. Here is an old fit pic with a fake lapel flower and no ps for everyone to bitch about . Cheers.
Back on track starting........ NOW.
Guys, let's all be happy and grateful we've experienced a real nice style forum in the past, it probably wont be back again.
Come on dude - todays WAYWRN was filled with old ghosts, thoughtful critique, snark, 5 pages of posts, gifs and memes.. god, I cant think of a day since the changeover where I felt more at home!
I know broseph, but still. The new forum doesn't give you that instant "happy feeling" I experienced when logging on to the old forum. Too much commercial and nonsense stuff going around here that's not too comfortable or relaxing, which is not what I want when I'm checking out a website in my spare minutes.
If you think it's bad around here on WAYWRN you might want to check out the shoe thread where there is a heated debate 'afoot' regarding the proper classifcation of pattens vs. clogs in medieval footwear history.
(It's actually a little interesting.)
Cheer up guys! It wasn't really a bad day. There were some good fits, some clunkers, some goons and some guffaws.
I think it's just plain old hard for most of us to be too focused on great fits when it's so damn hot out. When the weather cools the mood will change again, and again, and again.
Yes I need a real camera, and yes I'm not wearing a jacket. Sorry!
negro please ...

That was sort of the idea; this was for a casual get together last Sunday (probably should have made a note of that). It was over 90 degrees out so I went for a slouchy look. Doing everything up would have made the heat unbearable. I generally wear the same thing to work, but with grey wool trousers instead of khakis, and then I stay buttoned up until it gets too hot in my office. If I was wearing the tie to work or a formal occasion, then I would have knotted it more carefully and paid more attention to the length, but this was very casual. You are correct about the trouser length, though. I will have to take care of that later...
I'll take another picture tomorrow as I'm leaving for work to give you an idea of what it looks like all put together.
The trousers are very baggy, but then again I like them that way.
The tie is really quite beautiful, as is the vest. It looks much better in person that it does in that photo.
Thanks for the advice and the criticism!
I think this all proves my place in SF. I am the boobs-siah of the new forum. Come suckle at my breasts... except that I've been working out recently and have less of a breast to suckle. Well. That won't work.
Instead, I think the forum needs this fit again, still with the top hat.
And, there will be many more who will discover SF in its new, evolving style and be content, inspired and happy.
My business mentor used to tell me "change or die". And he was right. Embrace change and enjoy it.
