Love the hat, Marc.
Thumb master? I'm not witty at all.
The 20 thumb thread is really Claghorn, Elio, Cleav, and Don's baby--I've just stepped in a couple of times recently. Thanks for the shout-out, though!
Most of them have descriptors already. You deserve one too, as does Don.
That makes me a sad panda.
I knew I was right to start cropping my face out of my fit pics.
Not to much brown at all. Like the way you did the vest and socks.
It was meant in a loving way, I assure you, your actual face bears no poop like resemblance.
Thanks for the feedback. First off, I apologize for the pic. I will take a better one next time. It was a last minute idea, as was the ensemble. I am not much of a "Classic Mens Wear" guy. I have had plenty of professional jobs, but I always have had a love for casual/sport attire. However, these days as I am spending more time at my company downtown corporate HQ, and have felt the pressure to "suit up" at least to a degree.
I realize now that the color of the pant was a mistake. This is actually (though it's hard to see from the picture) a Michael Kors Navy blazer, which I actually really like. It's classic, not too slim, not too baggy. The pink shirt and navy tie with the navy blazer is a combo I have seen online and like. But it's usually paired with a grey or dark brown pant.
I thought the textures worked, but it's hard to tell from the picture I am sure. I will make sure I take the shirt into more consideration next time. And the shoes being darker is not something I would have thought of. Do you have a general rule you use about how dark your shoes should be in relation to what you are wearing that I am missing?
Thanks for the advice!
Don't apologize, it was just an observation. I look forward to seeing more pics from you. I don't think the choice of trousers was a mistake at all. Like I said, it's a classic combination. The shoes are very light as shoes go. For me having shoes that are anywhere near to the tone of your trousers makes them look muddled and disjointed. My lightest shoes I will only wear with white trousers, or very light shades of other colors. A pink shirt and a navy tie is not a bad idea, but with a blazer and khakis I think it is a mistake. Other people might disagree though and I encourage other people to proffer their advise. I am only one person with his own set of ideas and prejudices.
WtL, I think the jackets are too small for you, and the pants (at least in the first picture) are probably too large and need a pressing. In the second outfit, the tie and hank should never be within 100 yards of each other.
Thanks for the feedback. Specifically, thoughts on what makes the jacket look to small and what color/9attern id issue on the tie/ps combo? Thanks, I appreciate it.
