• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Have you lost a lot of weight lately? That shirt looks like it was made for a much larger man.
Next time you go shopping if you have an extra $20 go to Best Buy (I’m assuming you’re in America) and treat yourself to a camera tripod. Doesn’t have to be fancy but even with that and your camera-phone’s timer you’ll take infinitely better pics than in your checkerboard mirror.

Also I dunno if you’re looking for feedback but ...
Dimple that tie knot!
Bright shirt and bright tie is visually too much - choose one or the other.
I wear dark blue / navy odd strides but they’re not popular on SF. I also do a bit of matchy matchy sometimes which is also not usually popular on SF (red your shirt and socks).
Certainly dark strides like that deserve much darker shoes (Black / dark brown / chocolate suede etc).

Hope that’s helpful, take it or leave it. Also scroll pics of this thread and other menswear forums and blogs and make a note of those pics you like (or don’t like) then ask yourself why. In time you’ll build a mental picture of what you yourself like and don’t like and will have a framework of how to put good outfits together either from what you have or what you plan to buy next.

"Ah! there is nothing like staying at home, for real comfort." It's not often that a Jane Austen line rings a little hollow.

Today's outfit: Self Isolation, Day 9. Navy + Tan, variation 3.

Class discussions on Discord are providing some much-needed structure and laughter to quiet days. Our discussion of Austen was bubbly and amusing, as any discussion of her ought to be.

I think--hope--my students are enjoying remote discussion on their end, too. It's no replacement for being face to face, but it's what we have right now, and it offers us all a chance to experience some version of togetherness.

Threads cited:

Shirt: Brooks Brothers.

Custom DB Blazer: Grady Ervin, Charleston.

Tie: Seaward & Stearn, from WornInCharleston.

Socks: Tommy Bahama.

Vintage items from eBay, thrift, & consignment: Alden full strap penny loafers; tie bar; Robert Talbott chinos from WornInCharleston.

Antique linen pocket square from a dear friend.

Glasses and sunglasses: Warby Parker.

Once again, I appreciate your outfit feedback.

I have a real camera but,...

It's kind of a big jump to go from saying, "I like to wear ties now" to "I like to get dressed up and take pictures of myself for a bunch of weird nerds on the internet"

baby steps...

Ill try find a place to set my phone on and shoot, holding it is pretty awkard

After a row of days working from home, I finally decided to wear some clothes and see if I can be more productive:

So today imma do the professor look (and do so rightfully, as someone at work said I looked like a ‘nutty professor’).

• Doppio petto trasformabile from Prologue with lovely extended shoulders, worn as a 6 on 2 for the sake of a smaller v-zone to go with the bow - I later removed the giacca as it was getting bit too warm in HK, and i wouldn’t want to rub the 8oz LGB so much on the sofa
• Bow aqua blue floral pattern - can’t remember source but may be thrifted
• Blue spread-collar shirt from Peter Lee, with fraying collars and cuffs, and elbow patch unseen, after some 6 years of heavy-duty wear
• Moss green linen cardigan from Muji
• Khaki with double pleats from Urban Revivo (at around USD30 retail price, no decorative fuss, but most importantly straight cut and wide legs!)

A trad interpretation of an outfit with an otherwise iconically Italian garment at core. Si? Non?

Cheers

Thank you for playing. I welcome all input, and I cannot be offended.

That tie is beautiful and so is my lustrous unkempt hair.

You're right about the shoes and belt. Good tip, thanks

I cant really see myself clearly, until I see myself in this thread.

Jacket and no tie is against my religion.
