1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Please start a new thread on this. Could provide for some massive entertainment (and interesting discussion).

    What I wore this week:

    Missing: Sky blue loafers

    Should anyone think that my trousers are narrow, well, the images lie. I am a strong legged guy and my thigh width is 38cm, knee is 27cm and cuff width is 21 cm. That falls well into the "classical trousers" -category.

    Really like this last one, @SYCSYC. I'd probably go down a formality notch or two on the shoes given the (relatively) relaxed nature of the rest of it. Bluchers at least, maybe some chukkas. YMMV.

    Jacket and tie combo is great. Do you feel like you'll wear the whole suit much? Seems like it might be a bit too in your face with all that windowpane but I'm looking forward to seeing it in action :nodding:

    Are loafers with a suit, generally considered a bit of a no no with styleforum folks?

    I try to inject a lot of discussion in my classes. Early on in the semester, it can be a little tough, so I always have a printed out headshot of some celebrity taped to a chair in the front row. I'll call on it if it becomes clear nobody is going to say anything, pretend to listen to it, and respond (summarizing what it "said"). Works pretty well and I rarely need to call on the face after the first month or so (though students still get a kick out of which celebrity will be in attendence, and I'll occasionally call on it only for it to provide an incorrect answer or a silly suggestion).

    One of my favorites to use is Toshiro Mifune

    [​IMG]

    (Akira Kurosawa is easily one of my three favorite directors. He was also remarkably humble given his influence, as can be seen in his lifetime achievement Oscar speech and the title of his autobiography, Something like an Autobiography).

    ---

    Well, it probably depends on the Styleforum member.

    A more helpful answer: it depends on the suit. If it is a pretty conservative outfit, then loafers are probably best avoided, but loafers are probably appropriate for more casual suits (linen or silk blends, louder patterns, etc).

    Pink and browns is an unusual combination for me. Continue to annoy people with choice of footwear.

    SC: Zegna Couture
    Shirt: Rayner & Sturges
    Tie & PS: Berg & Berg
    Pants: Boss
    Specs: Dr Martens

    right suit, right loafers. Not a fan of the European-gigolo-sockless-loafers-with-lounge-suit look, and don't see it much here, but a shapely pair of pennies or tassels on a decent last (not long & square toed monstrosities) worn with socks will take you to the door of the boardroom if not inside.

    imo in WAYWRN there's more censure for rule-breaking badly done (poor cut or fit or color-texture-pattern-material combination) than for rule-breaking per se

    Why is boardroom often used here as an ultimate test of suitability of any given fit that includes suit, shirt and tie (AKA classic menswear)? Proverbial boardroom is somewhere in North East USA, of course...

    And if you put it in that context, loafers suitable for that situation are (IMO) the ugliest loafers there are.

    Anglo-American? Really? Sorry if I'm being stupid, I genuinely thought classic menswear (as in suit+shoes+shirt+some sort of neckwear) is more broadly Western European thing with regional variances ( North American style being one of the variances)

    Loafers w/ a suit, for my medical school graduation. As @Claghorn discussed, more appropriate/easier to do this when you have less formal fabrics. In this case a wool/linen herringbone suit and a knit tie (considered a navy tussah but really like this combination) to go along w/ the shell tassel loafers.

    Agreed! I spent a small fortune on Criterion Collection DVDs of his works only to turn around and do it all again in Blu-ray. One of the best Director/Actor teams ever. I hope you don't go all John Belushi in front of the students... [​IMG]
