    This is my absolute favorite Synth DR pic. I love how such a classically styled jacket can still lend itself to proportion play, and the relaxed but focused shape you have going on. Good shit.

    do you have to wear a suit to an interview at a boutique? that look isn't really "americana" if you ask me. I'm assuming you are into the workwear aesthetic since you want to work at a place like that. given that, I would wear something more in-line with that aesthetic (or maybe even closer to the store's specific aesthetic). most boutiques want their employees to represent what they are selling.
    Well, I figured I would wear a suit (or at least jacket/tie) to show that I'm serious about the interview while showing some sense of style. The store is more Americana than workwear, and I'd be worried about dressing down too much. I remember some comments in RFT (?) about dressing in suits for an interview at a department store like Barney's, and I guess I'm trying to channel that advice a little.
    also ^^ I think you should ditch the shirt and wear something more conservative like a light blue shirt or a white shirt. its still an interview
    Yeah, this is sort of the decision I'm grappling with.
    dls: that looks really sharp. How much chest clearance do you have with that blazer (p2p vs. your measured)?
    Thanks. My measured chest is around a 37, and it's actually a Banana Republic small (off the rack, thanks to ctrlaltelite for the tip). It measures about 20.5" p2p.

    I just get bored, you know? I was wearing some gap shirt ([​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] ) to work today with grey jeans and boots, and it was like, so fucking vanilla. got home and felt dirty, so I changed to go out to dinner with my friend. i don't even think i looked good, i'm not fucking delusional, but goddamn it felt better to wear than joe six-pack's shit-kickers and denim, especially with some shitty pants that I frankensteined with a sewing machine all by myself

    I think you could pull off some loosey-goosey, Yohji style thing. Got to get fewer sneakers in your rotation though [​IMG] My agenda is to get everyone doing an about face and wearing baggy shit by next year

    haha nice softy, just when I was starting to worry about you

    I've been trolling pretty hard for the hell of it. But fear not, I'm a long time caller first time listener.

    It's from a local MTM shop in Toronto. I think the leg opening is slightly too large and will probably get it slimmed down just a touch.

    What shop and how much? Were you pleased with it? I'm planning on moving back to TO after I graduate this spring and ought to get a decent suit or two.

    I'm really enjoying colour at the moment.


    [​IMG]

    anyway, shirt is making me look like i have love handles here. Doesn't look like that IRL. I should just upload some facebook photos or something, i tend to look much more natural in social settings, especially when drunk.

    yeah i know same bottom half as all the others. I just got another pair of ervell jeans in khaki, and a pair in black on the way. waiting for a store to get back to me with measurements so i can get the green copper oxide ones. i just love how they fit.
