    1. Shirt: Buzz Rickson chambray, worn untucked. Like so...

    [​IMG]

    ...but sleeves altered to be short-sleeved.


    - B


    I have that shirt and I haven't worn it once since the day I got it. The fit is horrible. It is so blousy in the chest and waist that even with darts the fit is a total fail. Plus the sleeves are so short. Also the construction is totally meh.

    I am surprised that it has vow's seal of approval.

    I will post a pic, if only to warn others, since that shirt is considered one of the best chambray shirts.

    Thanks for the include, ace. Here are some casual fits I posted in the past that I think may be better than the one you quoted.

    Thanks for this thread; as a new poster (obviously), and someone who would classify most of his outfits as belonging in this thread, I'm glad there's a more appropriate place for me to post, once I finally grow some stones and get an outfit together that's worth posting [​IMG]

    That looks familiar. [​IMG] ... but you switched out the belt!

    The attempts at compartimentalization in WAYWT threads are becoming silly. One MC/SWD thread is enough and it could even be beneficial to merge them (IMHO).

    works ok for me except for the hideous belt, its one of those fun sock my dick items MCers should abstain from wearing.

    The dressed up Butler can also dress down. Age, and the taste and resources to indulge in the best in tailored clothing, are not barriers to looking put together in casual wear.

    By put together well, do you mean rapey as hell, Bill?

    I think the differences in attitude alone between MC and SWD make this thread worthwhile.

    historical, from the best of WAYW thread:

    Great, you got Neofinitia's first post, that one was good.

    And now some more casual looks, selected from a non-urban viewpoint, from the patrician to equestrian to plebian.

    [​IMG]
    Voxsatorial, doing what mortals think of as inconceivable- a nailhead tan doublebreasted jacket.

    [​IMG]
    Unless of course you are Phat.

    [​IMG]
    This outfit of yfyf is shown elsewhere in this thread, but this is the image of it I like: linen and purple gingham.

    [​IMG]
    Fuuma- not for everyone. Ok, almost no one can pull this off. But the look here is more than the sum of its parts.

    [​IMG]
    Baron- just wonderful, that hint of pink from the red/white university stripe OCBD up top, covered by the dove gray sweater.

    [​IMG]
    Berlin Report- it's just jeans, tshirt, and a jean jacket. But it is relentlessly perfect, from the leather strap to the aviators to the scarf.

    [​IMG]
    Baron- the ragmuffin style for the farmers market from the year before 2008. I had to bring it back to life because it represents an ideal for a hot June day when there is nothing social on the agenda. A linen blue-plaid shirt, who knew?



    plus some others
