    There has been a lot of talk about the inappropriateness of casual shots in the WAYWRN thread. Yet, that is what many of us wear more often than our suit-and-tie ensembles. Most of you'd agree that posting in the SW&D sub-forum is not an option. I've tried to assemble most of the casual fits from the past month and re-post them here. Hopefully, from now on, if you want to discuss casual MC style, this will be the thread for it. Please, feel free to post any and all critiques that you have as well as photos of your recent fits.

    First time posting in WAYWRN:

    This was for brunch and a stroll around the city on Sunday:

    A couple from last week's holiday:

    Hello sailors!

    [​IMG]

    Was today Milano chinos day?

    [​IMG]



    And me:

    Not the best picture, but today's a seersucker shirt, AA hoodie, APC Petit Standards and Vans Authentics.

    [​IMG]



    Inlaws are awesome for letting Mrs. Spoo and I have a night out, and for letting her on the other side of the camera for a change. [​IMG]

    here's a more crazy shirt; guess it's more ok when it's up top

    Feels like I'm becoming you guys with the near-daily fits.

    Happy, er, Sunday girls:

    Fun Shirt for the TD Philadelphia International Cycling Championship with obligatory SF Bathroom Shotâ„¢ and FaucetDickâ„¢. Cheap giveaway sunglasses.

    Long time lurker. Don't think I have ever posted a fit. Will only be wearing a suit a few time between now and October, hence the casual fit today. Critique/comments are always welcome. Have a great afternoon!

    Should I post this in the CBD thread? Or should I have buttoned my jacket for that?



    Hi,

    Just a little try with some new clothes :

    purple corduroy hugo boss pant
    french bespoke shirt (Courtot)
    john smedley sea island cotton pullover

    Similar to last fit and feel better about it since it's more casual.
    [​IMG][​IMG]



    Good morning!)))
    [​IMG]



    Cross post from SW&D, figured it applied here as well.

    [​IMG]



    Off to the club for a meeting regarding the AT&T National. Shirt is a Pink/White stripe OCBD. Pants are linen, hence the wrinkles.

    Critiques/Comments please!

    Had to pop into work for an hour, but couldn't be bothered to dress up, so...

    Felt like wearing black and gold for some reason:

    Shoes are green grainy leather driving loafers.

    I'm in full non-BD mode, C or otherwise. Not "anti" anything; it's just too hot and muggy for a coat and tie, especially since I commute all of 2 miles by public transit and/or foot.

    Some crappy iPhone photos today. It was the first truly warm, sunny day we've had so far this year and a great excuse to break out my summer GTH pants.

    [​IMG]

    Pretty casual office I work at.

    From scorching...

    ...to mile-high dry...

    ...to the beach...

    ..to the city...
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    See you all around. Docking in for a few.

    neo, you always rule so much.

    it was kinda rainy and overcast and cool today"”probably not the best day to wear white pants & madras...

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    More crappy iPhone photos. I think this trend may continue for a while. Sorry gents.

    Home from work...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And now off to DJ at my favourite cocktail lounge...

    [​IMG]

    I stick my MC stuff in SW&D so I may as well do the same for MC:
    [​IMG]

    Had no time to post on weekend, but here's couple casual outfits from saturday and sunday.

    Saturday:

    Sunday:

    [​IMG]

    Vacation steezy, rumpled and easy.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Probably the last work related thing I post for this job (finishing it up soon). Been sort of cheating things lately; only a "dress shirt, dress slacks, dress shoes and necktie" are required so I just toss a tie on at work.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Very casual today:

    [​IMG][​IMG]



    Take 2.
    [​IMG]



    Chilled-out sort of day...

    [​IMG]



    Encouraged by some good comments, I am being bold to post another WAYWRN.
    It's Saturday, so I wore jeans with a jacket. I did try a pocket square but still it looks weird to me. [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    While posting, I found I had worn almost the same style last weekend.

    [​IMG]



    An attempt at casual; lets keep the collective disapprobation of the moccasin-loafers civil.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]



    This is the most "dressed up" I've been since the school year ended. Thought I should capture it for posterity.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Indigo Palms linen shirt
    Banana Republic lightweight cotton slacks
    Polo striped cloth belt
    Ray-Ban shades
    Citizen watch
    Johnston & Murphy disposable loafers
    Oldog/oldtrix socks



    Haven't posted in a while. The casual thread inspired me to take some photos. This is from Friday/Saturday/Sunday:

    I know it's half SW&D, but fuck poasting there! I need to get rid of this shirt"”it's an inch & 1/2 too large in the neck! (And lol at my A.P.C.s"”they were an inch too big to begin with, and stretched out in the crotch and knees, etc. It's so funny how weird these areas look! [​IMG])

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    End of a long day, crappy iPhone pics... ironic, as I just returned from a photography class.

    ridiculous pants require ridiculous facial expression

    Maybe you should show everyone how casual is done best. I'm sure you could. Although, casual may be for us, less fortunate people, who drink beer at night, instead of cocktails for lunch.

    A lot of work went into that- great, let's hope it sticks.

    The louche business dress shot of edmorel is legend itself. funny, I find it more reasonable than a tie without a jacket.

    If I see another photo taken with a Galaxy Tablet I'm going to fly to wherever you are and punch you in the face. Do I make myself clear?

    WTFAYWRN? This is like the aversion therapy scene from 'A Clockwork Orange (Pants)'. Every picture has at least one element that's trying too hard, except for niidawg (maybe) and acridsheep. Check yourselves. You're making the SW&D guys look right, and FNB just soiled his sheets.

    First of all, I wasn't doing a best of, just collecting all casual shots from last month's WAYWRN. Secondly, this is a different style of dressing. While bright colored pants may seem like trying too hard to you, to me they look interesting. Each person has his own personality and it may be expressed in many ways; at SF we express it partially through our choice of clothes. For example, when I wear red pants, I feel natural and comfortable. Spoo looks great in his colorful trousers, he's having fun and not taking himself too seriously. I prefer that to the CBD. That's not to say I don't like CBD, which focuses on fit and proportions rather than color and texture. It's all very interesting and worth mastering. By the way, this one's my favorite: [​IMG]

    Well said. I dont do casual that often, but when I do, my bracelets and I thank you for having a place to park it.

    Also, thanks for the include and nice words.
