noice everyone this page ^^^^
^ white square. Other then that, nice look.
Cheers, MGD83. I would if I could, but this is borderline acceptable as is.
You mean your office does not allow it?
Implicitly, not explicitly.
Another stellar weather morning, 60s but sunny
Blue suit, striped tie, white shirt
Black shoes n watchband
Nice idea, but that might make things even worse, given that it's width of the upper arms that seem to be causing the most concern.
First time wearing that tie as it turns out ($25 from the recent Barney's sale). I didn't notice anything esp bad but maybe I didn't pay enough attention.
How can you limit such a fantastic and versatile jacket to one tie color? Try Sage, Burgundy, Rust, Chocolate brown, Black and of course you mix up the pants beige, olive, brown and grey.
After making several attempts over the last day or so, I can finally respond to bespokekiwi's vicious insinuation:
I have never used the words "wow factor" nor have I ever used the word "pop" in such a context.
BKiwi, you and I have a date, noon, in front of the SF Saloon. Bring a pistol.
Today, I've gone very casual. Unstructured, unlined, treated wool navy Glen Plaid jacket by Brando (which, I think, is a Lubiam-produced line, not sure though), Kamakura light blue BD, and cotton bow-tie by The Hillside. Worn with (unseen) PRL custom-fit chinos and brown suede C&J monkstraps.
It's funny - unstructured jackets always look 'messy' in pictures, especially in the harsh, unidirectional light in which these were taken, whereas they just look unfussy IRL. A while back, I remember commenting on someone else's unstructured coat (by Ring Jacket, if I recall - I think it was Conrad Wu actually), and saying it looked odd, and now I find myself looking at these pictures and thinking the same thing.
Second pic for body fit, but also especially for @DerekS showing #fuckyeahmenswear folding back of overlong jacket sleeve.
No meeting with bankers today but just dressed properly for work. Thanks for the shirts @Claghorn (today's and the last one).
Oh...perhaps you are right. I thought the sleeve below the elbow is what gave that jacket a boxy vibe...
Like the tie / shirt. And the suit / shoes in fairness! I'd have done my PS a different way, perhaps a TV fold, but it is what it is.
