It's what the called PG style .
As far as I remember this has been done in the 80's aswell, even on sweater sleeves.
^ I like the windowpane, but I think you are just too young for a DB.
It isn't exactly flattering to the body either. Jacky G could do things others could not.
Almost all of my 15 suits are DB. I have 4 SB's. Trust me if you saw my entire face and over all appearance you would't think I was day under 30. I wear DB for a few reasons. OTR it get better patterns, full cut, I look older- which is something I need and don't need. Customers used to request someone more "senior" to work with them.
Im not saying that they are strictly for geriatrics - I was wearing a Huntsman pinstripe DB at the age of 31 - but it has to fit your gravitas. From what Ive seen of Paolos face, he does not seem to have the gravitas to pull one off - but he looks at himself in the mirror in the morning and says it works, so, there you go.
Nah, if I remember right it just doesn't fit inside the shirt cuff.
Steven Hitchcock garberdine SB no vent, half lined summer suit, gauntlet cuffs.
T & A bespoke pink shirt
Hermes tie - unknown PS
John Lobb St James's burgundy loafers
first try here with some basic combination. any faux pas or something?
Just to clarify
Your combination of shirt, tie, pocket square is good to go.
Adjustments: Your shirt collar appears to loose - you need a smaller neck size. Your tie knot is a bit large and could use a dimple. Pocket square could be more aligned with the angle of the top of the pocket (or use a looser fold which can be more loosely aligned.) To me, the very simple TV fold you've used is fine but I prefer it when this sort of fold aligns pretty much exacly with the top of the pocket.
Hi, Gdot. Really appreciate your advice.
You're true about the neck size. Problem is, S sized shirts tend to have sleeves that are too short for me so I have to settle with M.
I'm aware of the rather bulgy knot. Believe it or not, that was my second attempt ever in tying a tie so I had no idea how to reduce the size of the knot, let alone creating a dimple. Maybe I should try small knot instead of FIH? FYI, that's a knit tie.
Never mind the pocket square. I actually intended it to align with the pocket but it just wouldn't sit right :/
