    @techno--That is an awesome look. Period.

      Great looks recently, ive been away for a bit and too many to catch up on individually, but people are kickin a$$ and taking names from the looks of things.

      Two things to post. First is a WIWAWB(what I wore a while back) for Easter. Everything since then has been pretty boring (jeans and t shirts to class, etc) but I kind of liked this look for what it was.



      Blazer - I have 0 idea. Was found buried in a closet at Mrs New Guys folks house and her dad told me to wear it if I liked it. For being 20+ years old, thing was pretty sweet!
      Shirt - j crew OCBD
      Jeans - j brand
      Shoes - ae van ness
      Socks - happy

      Second 'fit is what I'm planning to wear for a friends wedding in Northern California this weekend. Thoughts? Planning to add some kind of pocket square and I'm not crazy about the collar on the shirt, but it is the best fitting white shirt I have so I think I'm stuck with it...



      Suit - suit supply (Napoli fit)
      Shirt - nordstroms
      Tie - tie bar
      Tie bar - tie bar
      Not pictured - ae van ness and happy socks (same as above)

        @lukeduke - looks pretty good. your jacket could maybe use some tailoring. Suede players are one of my favorite pairs of shoes
        Thanks, Greg. Yeah, I think the pic is kinda deceiving. The jacket is actually pretty snug when buttoned up. Almost to the point where I think it's probably more fitted than a trench coat is supposed to be. I would have a tough time even wearing a button down with a thin v-neck sweater layered on top underneath it. I did have my tailor lengthen the sleeves a bit, but that was all. I'll try to capture a picture of it buttoned up in the next couple weeks.

          As you mentioned, I'm not crazy about the shirt collar either.
          I'd definitely add a pocket square. A solid white cotton or linen would be simple and understated. You could also try something darker, like a navy blue dotted square.
          I like the tie, but it's certainly on the more casual side. What material is it made from?

            @technojinn - wonderful outfit! Daring pattern mix, classic, yet updated, very nice!
            @foodie - damn I can't wait for my denim jacket to arrive, gonna wear the hell out of my ties and dress shirts with it!

            Strangely simple today:

              techno: Looks AMAZING. Love everything about it, especially the navy-white polka dot tie. I have a thing for navy-white polka do, and for red gingham, incidentally. I need to see about getting myself one of those ties.

              foodie: Those shoes are SO NICE. And I'm starting to grow pretty jealous of that jacket...

              NewGuy: Agreed on that collar. If you're finding it a bit too casual, you may want to switch ties. Looks solid all in all though.

              Matt: Rocking the purple; best part of the outfit is definitely where the pants meet the shoe though. Great leg taper, great shoe color. Love it.

              Rainy here and too busy to post a picture as of late... I'll show you guys the newest weapon in my "f-you" pants arsenal when I get around to it though.

                    Something looks off with the fit of that suit, have you taken it to a tailor(not alterations place)? the pants look too baggy and the rise seems low. The shoulder width seems good but the rest of the suit looks like it just drapes over you rather than "hugs". Last thing is the cuff width of the suit is meant for french cuffs, you can see how much room you have between the cuff and the shirt cuff. I'm suffering a similar fate today but it's not nearly as drastic and it is actually driving me crazy

                            Agreed, i think the pants are riding too low based on the sagging effect in the crotch

                              @techno, Great look but I think the pants need to be hemmed a little...maybe 1/2". Everything fits great but I think there's too much excess fabric bunching that throws off the sleek slimming look of what you're wearing up top.

                                @matt - great outfit, what color are those pants?

                                @maxman - way to rock the cardigan and jacket...what's the material on the cardigan?
