    Great look Spoo, nice seeing someone put that Shantung to use.

    Is that a rare visit to the Hyde Park New Pavillion by chance?

    CG, I see where you're coming from with this.

    VictorSF, I feel that your fits would often be improved if you removed a pattern from the mix, sort of a MC version of Coco Chanel's advice regarding accessories. Here, a check suit, check shirt, check tie, and check PS are simply too much for my preference. A solid tie or shirt would have bumped this up for me.

    Your stuff is impecably fit, among the best on the forum. And you also have the best, most professional photographer. I think this helps your looks work when they might not necessarily for other posters. I appreciate your obvious enjoyment of tailored clothes; I usually see one or two items that just push them over the top to my liking. I hope you continue to post your takes on tailored clothing.

    I know my criticism is rich, especially considering my history of posting ridiculous shit here (remember the snakeskin cowboy boots, or manatee vagina Bavarian jacket lapels?). I think I've finally found my aesthetic with this anonymously boring businesswear I've embraced of late. ::shrug::

    Speaking of boring businesswear, got this older Hermes tie for free with some repp ties I bought off of AAAC, and trying to figure out whether it's worth keeping. Input welcome.

    Dear Victor,
    I don't like you simply because you do and probably always will dress nicer than me... It's an emotion of pure envy and jealousy and I'm very upset about it.
    Regards,
    Bill



    jk, that tie is f*ucking money! :slayer:

    I love the texture on this tie, Spoo.

    Lufty,

    Sadly - that tie is not working for you - neither the pattern nor the width. Sorry. Rest of the look is solid, as usual.

    Yeah, that's basically how I felt about it as well. On that note, anyone want a free tie? :happy:

    Spoo - that is very nice. Great texture on that tie, and the suit fits great. Elegantly restrained.
    Lufty, not feeling the tie. Classic suit, tho.
    Victor, I appreciate your indulgence in clothes, & I enjoy your posts. You've got fit nailed down, and none of what you post is ugly. It's obvious that you have fun with clothes, and that your place of employment (if you work at all) allows you to do so. That said, I'd echo Lufty's advice to take just one pattern out & see how you like it.

    Lufty -

    I actually kind of like the tie. I don't think it works with a suit as there is A LOT going on; conversely, I think it would pair well underneath a sport coat and/or sweater. If you're a cardigan wearer, that would pair pretty well for a dressy/casual look for a night on the city.

    I'm the same way - gotta try it at least once - even if I know better!

    If for no other reason than to provide some startling contrast to the perfection that I excude every other day of the week. :crackup:

    I report, you decide.


    Yeah, I had a navy w/ white dots tie ready to go, but decided to give this a whirl instead. Hindsight…
