    Is this the Jerseystyle forum? Sports cars, teeth whitening and working out.

    Fuuma, was riding home today and thought of a WWFD (What would Fuuma do?) question - what is your stance on dressing up to go eat, and what do you wear (full fit in description) to places where jacket is required?

    I don't switch clothes to go out. Let's say I know I need to be dressed up (recently had a cocktail on protocol) I might actually make an exception but my current uniform is:

    velvet, silk or tweed Jacket (varies a lot, from Paul Smith to Paul Harnden going through Lanvin)
    White dress shirt (mtm)
    White cotton handkerchief (just pick them up at some menswear store like Barneys, who cares about that)
    Sweater (Branquinho or Borrelli)
    Black Jeans (Cloak or *gasp* Levi514)
    Black boots or dress shoes (something Mitteleuropean)

    This is fine for eating out, going out or pretty much anything short of a funeral, marriage, opera night or embassy reception.

    If I am in a summery climate I'll often go lighter (white jeans or pants or lavender or somesuch colour, brown captoes, blue dress shirt and a militarish light jacket).

    Dunno if the question was serious or not but here you go...

    I am packing right now and I'll probably bring one black moleskine suit as my only suit but a couple of sportcoats, sweaters, jeans and maybe one additional pair of dress pants.

    Hey I've (rarely) been to the gym and had my teeth whitened (I smoke, drink red wine and a lot of coffee so...) but I mean, that's kinda like talking about sports or whatever, it shouldn't be the main trust of this thread.

    my question was indeed serious, and I figured as much, thanks. I would've done the same a few years ago, mostly black everything and a white dress shirt, lots of raf and jil sander, but too much time on this forum and in the clothing factories has me into bespoke suits and italian style shirts and the whole setup lately. Don't think I'll delve as deep into it as the MC guys who do the 'casual' look as if they're going to go hang out with their white friends at the country club and pretend they're Italian or British, but viewing clothes as arts n crafts makes for fun dressing.

    i've long given up on discussing anything meaningful in here...i use email or other methods of communication for actual conversations.

    going to citronelle/central jacket is required, so i will take a nuur metallic one and bluesteel those fools. no jeans or sneakers so will have to wear some distressed boots and trousers, am tempted to go drop crotch ann but the wool is too warm for now.
    i will check out pocket squares at barneys, have 0 right now so i guess i could add a couple to the closet.

    Not that it was a great one, but you wouldn't consider a conversation on general self/body improvement part of fashion? The clothes go on the body

    Improving myself is wayyyyy up there past fashion. There are some things I want to buy, but won't because I feel I need another inch or two pec wise to fill out properly. Some find that important and it affects their personal style

    Not to sound repetitive but I can always count on you or shah to state something is off topic, sometimes you might have a point, other times....not really

    As far as cars, I already told you people find beauty everywhere clothes, cars, whatever. None of these things makes this jersey style, whatever that is

    My guess is people like to hear the opinions of the others they talk to here in SW&D who probably don't go over to the other sub-forurms ?? Who knows
