Re: Ivy League style for today

The obvious thing is the sleeve length, it's way off, but when you couple that with the trouser length the problem seems somehow amplified.

Re: Ivy League style for today

Have been wearing this Press suit a lot recently, to mixed, though generally positive reviews. What do you think of the colour? It's been a sticking point for many, am curious what you experts think!

Re: Ivy League style for today

Is there a factory making clones of me and McDermot?

I quite like that type of green, nice pair of reddy brown or burgundy shoes all good me thinks...so people will just not go near green

HA!

I agree with BB on a nice shade of green and the ideal shoe colors... I do think the pink does make it look very, uh, green... But rock your style, mhalat, f**k the haters...

Very snappy - is that one of the recent Southwick suits in J Press mhalat?

I like pink and olive green. The outfit needs a bit more, either a patterned shirt or a nice knitted tie like this ...

Do we have more green suit aficionados here? Or more bearded mediterranean ad men? Either way, glad to be counted among your number.

Incidentally, was wearing with burgundy penny loafers today.

Berkeley Breathes - I'd usually wear with a blue twill or royal oxford shirt, but was just TOO excited to wear this recent Mercer Acquisition. It's too pink though, you're right, my camera clearly went a little bit on the fritz trying to capture the contrast, judging by the blur on the shirt.

Woofboxer - It's just a vanilla J Press poplin suit, not one of the Southwick collaborations. I snapped it up in... July I believe? It was 60% off at the time, and was thus too good to pass up. A note - I have very broad, sloping shoulders. J Press suitings seem to be cut for men with narrower, higher shoulders. I'd have thought twice, even with the discount, if I knew ahead of time that my tailor would have to take the jacket apart and reconstruct it for my build. The end result was great, but nullified much of the discount that made me purchase the suit on impulse to begin with! Love the tie suggestion. As for the patterned shirt suggestion, I'm a big fan of Liberty, so will keep this in mind next time.

Thanks for your feedback, gents!

Re: Ivy League style for today

I think Mr McDermot and I share Irish backgrounds to varying degrees, displaced Iberians maybe the link


It's difficult with pink shirts,  I've got, at the last count, about 5, some too pink, some too peach, the subtler the better I've found. The perfect one I finally settled on was on a oldish but still modern gant, pale enough that it doesn't leap out or look over saturated within the ivy pallette


For the record here's the colour

Those viewing on Samsung should see it the truest those on apple will see it a bit paler

Love that pink!

Re: Ivy League style for today

Today was the first time I ever wore a tie in an everyday situation. Not going to lie, it felt a bit weird at first.

dooooooood

seersucker is very much 'my shit'. usually prefer a finer stripe, but you're just killing this. am curious, are you seeing any interesting spanish sartorial decisions? would love to know if you've seen a nice teba jacket, for example.

I think I would be remiss in my mod duties if I didn't point you to another place here on TI where teba jackets were talked about --http://forums.filmnoirbuff.com/viewtopic.php?id=20066

Re: Ivy League style for today

Puttering around at home today in Patagonia chinos and an untucked old short sleeved BB Makers (a dark blue with white stripes, although it's hard to see the real color in this horrible lighting):

https://s26.postimg.org/oi06f7mx5/IMG_1540.jpg

Yesterday I wore this beautifully aged Bean OCBD...

https://s26.postimg.org/sseuass09/IMG_1530.jpg

Both shirts made in the USA of course... A truly magnificent collar on the Bean, I felt like Redford's Bob Woodward...

Re: Ivy League style for today

Thank you very much, fellas!

@ Sancho: this is a modern Lands' End Seersucker shirt I had slimmed down as it was extremely full cut, fuller than most traditional fit Lands' End shirts. If you are on a budget, those LE shirts still are winners - I don't find their collars too small as many do. They are not the biggest rolling collars but they are quite ok!

@ Mhalat: Those shorts were Lands' End "modern cut" non iron (very much like Sta Prest) chinos first, but after wearing them for a while I discovered a scar at the knee that looked awful. So I had them altered to shorts with a cuff, and that turned out really well. Don't be fooled, those have a relatively low (let's say medium) rise, fortunately most lower to medium rise chinos look ok on me as my torso is a bit shorter than my rather longish legs... a good alternative are the traditional cut chinos as they have a higher rise but they are also fuller cut - but still not too full.

@ BB: nice shirts!

P.S.: @ Young Ivy: I love your seersucker jacket. Top!
