VINTAGE 1950's SILK SUIT BY HARLEMRAGGZ
Mario Muscareli (idk the exact spelling)
Vanda on maiden voyage
Do you have a full shot of the pants with the jacket? Looks like a tough combo
Thanks all to Noodlers.
No white square?
I like it from what I can see, though tie & hank a bit matchy and tie knot may be a bit full for that size spread. Clags makes a good point; I shall await final verdict pending full shot.
Not with this suit~
One step at a time. We finally got him to take the suit out of its plastic and actually wear it outside. Now, we'll have to slowly convince him that it isn't necessary to keep his pockets sewn shot.
Also, Noodles, selfie pro-tip: Just stand naturally, as you do in real life. It is possible to do a good robo-pose, but it takes practice (it also helps to spend a good amount of time at a tailors in front of a mirror...basically the way the tailor instructs you to stand is the way you want to do a good robo-pose). And a robo-pose is rarely appropriate for outside shots, which really do scream for something a bit more natural.
Anyway, how does it feel to finally wear that jacket out and about?
One of the strengths of this forum is that it gives people with some experience in the way of men's style an opportunity to help those just starting out. In the best of circumstances it guides newcomers in the right direction based on what they hope to achieve. It also gives the newcomer an opportunity to learn from the mistakes of others and, hopefully, not repeat those mistakes. In the case of @The Noodles I can't help but wonder if he would have been better off just learning all this on his own. Is there a psychological term for compulsively seeking advise and then not taking it?
Btw, you look good @The Noodles .
Very trad today. Brooks Brothers tie, vest and shirt.
I went to Suit Supply today with intention of buying a suit. They were very busy and I had a hard time finding someone to help me. Maybe another day.
Went to a nice brunch. For once, I wasn't all that overdressed (though I never feel overdressed)
AS, you've really found a groove of late. I love the balance of tradition, fit, and flair/self-expression you've achieved.
could noodles pants use less break at the hem?
Are those slanted pant cuffs?
Or is it just the stance that's causing the pant leg to fall not straight in pic 2?
