nice shirt and tie combo
Today I depart
From my normal mode of dress
Japan makes nice suits.
It you are distant
It appears solid grey;
Closer, subtle stripes.
In this photogaph
My pants look like they're too long
Then I hiked them up.
Also my coat sleeves
Are a bit short for my taste
I also cheated
Because the shirt I'm wearing
Is a non-iron.
This is my first WAYWRN post (new to SF). I'm a year out of grad school and I'm slowly trying to upgrade my wardrobe. I don't have a pic of the shoes I'm wearing - they're AE Maxfields in chili.
Agreed. Is this coat a bit tight in the chest Spoo? Or is the bowing an effect of the cut?
The color combos look swell.
That is one of your better graph paper shirts luft, I really don't like the ones with thin lines.
Nice tie too.
Suit is a bit on the "straight/angular" side.
who's the japanese maker? or is this a case of more secrets. too many secrets!
Agreed. I need a similar tie.
Thanks. I have another with really small red checks that I liked when I bought it, but I feel I always struggle with making it work in the context of a full look.
earlier this year, I was under the impression they were in business together. Are yuo coming to NYC to see Mina?
Lufty, I am seriously considering sending you some new shoes.
Thanks very much!
Thanks, I see you echoed similar today too. The jacket is a bit tight - I had it tailored at my smallest... been porking up a bit lately.
Got my suit back today, had the sides taken in and the sleeves slimmed. I think having the sleeves slimmed makes them stick to my arms a little more so they look shorter than before. Either that, or my new shirt is too long. edit: yeah too long Still, better than before.
Eason, to my eye it looks too short as a whole - the rise on the pants, the length of the pants, the sleeves, and the jacket. Was it intentionally meant to be that way - a la Thom Browne?
Yeah, shorter rise, more cuff, shorter jacket. Still, not crazy short.
