    Snake, looks great.

    Tween, I actually think this looks good, other than the t-shirt which looks odd. I think it might be bc the collar is really think and just doesn't work with the blazer, which is amazing.

    How do you like those duckie brown shoes? I ordered that exact pair a few days ago...

    thanks for all the input guys.

    I should have been more clear I guess, the tee is just an old supreme x hanes (what i actually wore out in this heat, along with some WWM shorts) and I didn't bother to put on some sort of oxford although I normally would. Most likely a white one since the pants are a blue oxford cloth/color. I like Jet's idea of some yellow in there, I'm trying to keep it to the classic prep spectrum for something like this.

    The big pants + slim blazer is something I've been juggling around in my head for a while, and figured I might as well test out. I tried pinrolling them too but that looked stupid, and I tried them with some darker shoes but they're heavy duty longwings and felt it messed up the summer vibe. I'm considering getting them hemmed to be ankle length with an actual cuff though.

    I can't tell if 123abc is just messing around but the blazer is navy blue.

    Maybe I'll tweak it out a bit on a nicer day and get a photo with some better lighting to see how it really comes out.

    thatguymj - I've grown to really like these bucks and I wear them just about every day now, they're really comfy and super lightweight. Good summer shoes.

    I understand what you're going for with the Junya runway theme Tween, but the cut of the pants seems a bit off. Junya def. has pretty loose pants on the runway, but they don't fit the same way as the ones you picked out. I can't quite pinpoint the reason for this...

    Well thought-out response.

    As far as the shirt is concerned, there are a few different options. I specifically dislike H&M shirts because they tend to have really low-cut armholes, which means they end up being cut wider through the body, and the collar seems to get messed up after a couple of wears and washes. As far as cheap goes, I find that the Gap slim fit shirts actually aren't bad. I buy the medium tall shirts and have them tapered and hemmed (the latter so I can wear them untucked), and it's a decent fit. There are also some online made-to-measure options. You'll probably have some sizing misfires before you get it down pat, but you can end up with some reasonably priced well-fitting shirts. If you want to try it out, Modern Tailor (one of the affiliates, I think you'll see them as a "featured sponsor" with a link to their site if you go to the Men's Clothing sub-forum) has a cheap introductory offer.

    As far as the SF "uniform" is concerned, I feel like there's kind of a diversity of styles that get love here, but there's probably a long and seemingly baffling list of no-nos as well. Dunno.
    It can be kinda tough to find the balance between tuckable and untuckable in a button-down. You can have the tailor take more off the front and back than the sides when hemming, which may help keep it in that range. I just basically always untuck, since I can.

    It was a fall day yesterday. It's summer again now, 20c or so, but this morning it almost broke freezing.

    bored while waiting for a reservation, so fall preview!

    I have a feeling I'm going to live in this jacket. I layered it with a bunch of different things and I liked them all. (under barbour, over blue baseball jacket, under vest, etc. But part of my still wants to get an oversized camo parka instead, since I have so many waist-level jackets. And this one would be redundant with my green junya one.

    Thoughts?

    +1 I think the style of dressing most appreciated here is great: v sharp, but somewhat safe, almost a uniform, and not necessarily the kind of style u see a lot of or is appreciated IRL. the PS is de rigeur for WAYW jacket and tie fits but rarely found any where else ... and generally considered somewhat dandyish. Take a look at the Wall St Journal, for example, and count the number of pocket sq's. Not a common affectation amongst the biz elite even tho many are wearing tailored suits and some even dress reasonably well. :uhoh: Men who clearly know a lot about cloth and clothes and fashion and are models of well-dressed trans-Atlantic style don't necessarily dress in an SF approved way - Simon Crompton, for example, won't often put PS and tie in the same fit. If he posted here anon he'd prob be pulled up on it. Likewise say Luca Rubinacci mixes styles in ways that IMO works most of the time, but strays from many of the conventions of color, pattern, cut and cloth here, even some of Spoo's fits that been trashed for being too 'interesting' are amongst his best looks, again IMO. def I like to see (mostly) perfect combinations from peeps like Holdfast and M Breinin but would also like to see more risk taking by peeps who know the basics

    Works for me.

    Love the tie.

    Anybody got a bead on a decent knit tie like that? Doesn't need to be baller, just acceptable on the off chance the need for a tie arises.

    Your post is somewhat contradictory. You start off by saying that a lot of the fits on SF are "dandyish" and not representative of what you see in real life and then you conclude by saying that you'd like to see people take more risks here. Doesn't make much sense.
