Kent Wang (square)
Howard Yount (tie, pants)
On cuffs: All my dress pants and chinos have cuffs. I don't like pants without cuffs; it just looks unfinished to me.
I have a few uncuffed pants and they always fall weird. To me cuffs give an added weight that make the pants fall properly
I like this sweater a lot. I think a grey tie would have looked better here.
I love the jacket and tie, but the denim shirt is my favorite here. I think the pocket square is a bit too bright given the darkness of everything else in the top half.
Dang, son. How you gonna wear a POW three piece and not give us a full body shot? Suit looks doper than dope. Deets?
Chinos with cuffs… Hmmm, I've seen it before but I could never get behind it for myself.
This seems to be a pretty prevailing sentiment.
Clags, that is nice, and pretty classically you, but I am not sure about the square there.
^^^ My thoughts exactly.
Look, the square has two things going for it which trumps all else.
1) It's cream
2) It's Egyptian
Though in all honestly, I like squares that occasionally dominate an outfit simply by dint of them being bolder or brighter than anything else there. Now I'm not talking about full on silk Nagasaki exploding out of the pocket...just a little bit of dominance. Like. The kind you pay for when vacationing in Germany. On that note, it's something that Timotune does very well. He'll have a very sedate fit with a slightly too vivid square.
Can I say for the sentence-to-sentence segueing in that post?
Edit: Dammit, Caustic Man beat me to it!
^^^ Great minds...
Thanks again to everyone who likes my pictures and thanks again to everyone who takes the time and trouble to post pictures of themselves.
Earlier today, on Melrose Place, my favorite relay box and I. I am wearing a Polo Ralph Lauren jacket, Brooks Brothers PPBD, a tie that the person I was having lunch with gave me for Christmas, Squarextraordinare pocket square, Lyle & Scott sweater vest, Orvis cord trousers, and Allen-Edmonds shoes. The relay box is wearing a faux finish.
Stitchy, agreed, but there won't be any joy on the cuffs front. Not enough fabric. I could get a false cuff, but it wouldn't help the drape. I'll probably get my tailor to add some hem reinforcing tape to add weight.
I think a Fair Isle would be more comfortable with tweedy things. That sort of traditional. But don't be sad. It's just this man's opinion.
Thank you (and the others who thumbed). Our house is being remodeled, and non-cluttered areas in the house are few these days. The one that's been okay wasn't today. This is a BB Madison in what looks to me to be a worsted flannel. Just a little bit of fuzz to make you feel all cuddly.
You seem to have a super-standard RTW physique: everything fits u so well.
Damn that suit's nice, but square's too casual for me here + looks out of context with this otherwise CBD look
Did u intentionally match the band stripe repp with the wide top pocket? It works well IMO
