Last week: small/small--
And today: small/large--
Me too (see above).
These get progressively better as you scroll down.
Was just thinking the same thing.
I don't like the tie and shirt together here - but I think the tie and suit are good together. And I'd call them large/large because even though the dots are small and the stripes are pin, their spacing is similar. The similar spacing between the tie and suit, as well as the similar thickness of the stripes/dots, works well I think. Change the shirt to a solid light blue and it's a good fit IMHO.
it's unfused, that's just sorta what they're like. it's a little exaggerated on that side b/c i'm holding the camera up.
I'm waffling on my next run of shirts for this reason. I like the softer, more casual look of unfused, but at times they look a little too rumpled. Thinking I might order my next round with soft fusing to see if that makes for a nice middle ground.
I think a lighter interlining will create less rumpling too - I've ordered my next round with a lighter interlining, I'll let you know how it turns out. But also I kind of like a slightly rumpled look - I could probably get less rumpling out of this one if I put in some effort with a steamer or iron.
Agreed. All my OCBDs are unfused and make for a nice, natural rumple that I quite like. Plus it aids in a better roll, IMO. But for my semi-spread rotation, I think a light interlining is the best way to keep a bit of shape without looking stiff as a board.
I get all of mine unfused, I just ask for stiffer interlining.
^^ ill bet you do! ^^
ahhh, that goes back to our dinner conversation. im not sure that its for me, but do what you do, son.
thanks! i think i know why this look was appreciated, and there are certain element that i will try and repeat, when i am looking for the CBD look. however, that is not always the look i am looking for. the goal then is, to identify what those looks are, and improve on them as well.
there is also the fact, that there are still things i like that will never fly here. i may "grow out" of them, or i may not, but i will always endeavor to be true to myself, and try to look good while doing so,
No one is trying to mold you into someone you're not, we're just trying to help. This is not about CBD, it's about what goes with what, color-wise, texture-wise, what proportions work, etc... Happy to see you wearing green stripes and all, but you have to find what works with those.
Good stuff, Stitchy.
sb- is that one of those Drakes wool/silks from last year? I love that square and have one myself. But I think it's a little out of place here because of the lack of color everywhere else. I think I'd have gone just white linen. Just my two cents. Everything else looks great though.
looks good to me
