ooops i meant to put this on the pictures section what was i thinking. plz move it admin? :)

What do you mean miserable cad?
I like the suit but what are you going to be using it for? I hope you don't go to the bars wearing that thing...

08-26-2005, 12:30 AM

but yeah why shouldn't i wear it to a bar?

08-26-2005, 12:32 AM
Hahhahaa I don't know... maybe a bit too formal for what is supposed to be a relaxed setting.

What do you do for work? That seems like a pretty f*cking formal suit if you ask me.

08-26-2005, 12:50 AM
actually i wore it tonight to a job interview for a bank. it went well. but yeah if i was going out afterward i'd at least remove the vest lol.

08-26-2005, 12:53 AM
I'm not a fan of the tie clip. I like the suit though!

08-26-2005, 12:59 AM
thanks! well since i tied such a huge double windsor knot, the skinny end of the tie wasn't long enough to go through the little loop on the back of the wide end so the clip was necessary. at least i didn't go with a chain! lol

08-26-2005, 01:03 AM
Honestly, if you're in that situation i would go with some double stick tape. I know it sounds ghetto but it works.

Very smart :)

Quite formal with the vest thing on, but if you are going for interviews at banks it isn'g going to look out of place.

If you go to a bar, get rid of the vest and tie and get that top button open :)

I picked up a quality hugo boss from vegas when I went there last. Attached a pic...

Yes.... I am very, very cool... (I am on the left with the jacket on)

08-26-2005, 01:16 AM
nice Daniel. Good to see I'm not the only one who favors huge knotted ties with wide collar shirts heh.

08-26-2005, 03:13 AM
Yeah it would actually look really good in a bank environment. I was only half serious about the bar thing, I was tryingo to just figure out where you were planning on wearing it. It would definitely look goot at a bank though.

honestly I prefer not to wear ties, an unbottoned top button, casual look in my opinion looks better. But hey I was at the races and wanted to look ultra smart!

The next time I went I only wore a shirt and no jacket.

I certainly hope you wore pants.

You brits do know how to tie a fat knot.

08-26-2005, 07:38 AM
you look like an accountant in a big adventure movie, and your on the evil firm side and pointing out that this and that is their property and you can account for it!

you know, like the brit in jurrasic park, the firm guy.

08-26-2005, 08:04 AM
I like a little smaller knot with a dimple. Nice suit.

08-26-2005, 08:43 AM
The tie clip and vest have got to go. The suit color is good, though. Now get a bit of a tan and you're set. ;)

08-26-2005, 08:47 AM
I like the 3 piece, you would just have to have an occasion to wear it.

08-26-2005, 08:52 AM
You did right. That is a banker's suit.


08-26-2005, 08:54 AM
It's too rural and old fashioned for my taste... but to each his own, certainly. For what it is he did a good job with it, though looks like he should be on the set of Aviator.

08-26-2005, 09:34 AM
I'm a banker and I can count the number of times in the last 5 years that I've had to wear a suit... on one hand with two fingers chopped off.

That suit is better for the mortuary crowd... no offense.. it's sharp... but damn.. too much.

08-26-2005, 11:21 AM
That's the look of a young oil tycoon (when he's not wearing jeans and a t-shirt).

08-26-2005, 11:27 AM
That suit makes you look hella British.

08-26-2005, 11:34 AM
british eh? well i'm a texan. i just dont have a tan b/c i fear sunspots lol must be the fat tie knot that makes it look european. had a wide collar shirt though so figured might as well make the knot big a la American Psycho.

08-26-2005, 11:37 AM
I think it is the combination of the material,vest,tie,hair, and pose that makes you look british. I guess the ghost look may add to it as well. I am not a big fan of the material. You should have went with pin strip. Those look pretty sharp.

08-26-2005, 11:53 AM
I like larger knot ties. I need to buy more suits.

08-26-2005, 12:47 PM
It looks like you just stepped out of the early-mid 19th century.

I think Dan's (Hulk) suit is much more trendy/modern.

08-26-2005, 01:12 PM
I think it's awesome.
I sure hope you have a pocke****ch- I wear one with my suit and that **** is pimp as hell.
I can't believe I just typed this.

EDIT: lol the censor blipped the middle of pocket watch. I guess I should have seen that coming.

08-26-2005, 01:12 PM
One thing I don't like about it is the color. I like black suits.

08-26-2005, 01:24 PM
I personally don't like a fat knot though I like a spread collar. For a spread collar I prefer a half windsor. It is triangular and symmetrical, but smaller than a full windsor. I also like a four-in-hand knot with a buttondown and a point collar. Though a half windsor looks good with those too.

08-26-2005, 03:19 PM
The material is tweed, no? That's uber Brit. And I just noticed that your pants have MULTIPLE pleats... umm... that's just wrong. Unless you plan on carrying half of Texas in your pockets or your legs are gynormous you have no business having more than a single pleat on your pants. Even that is a bit much. Conservative is an understatement for that suit. I love the tweed, though.

08-26-2005, 03:32 PM
I would never wear that, but to each his own. Hopefully you got the job.

08-26-2005, 05:56 PM
nope dont think its tweed, just charcoal grey 100% wool. it might look tweed because it has tiny checkers of grey and black though. anyway thats the only suit they had in my size at the men's warehouse being that i'm a pretty small guy (5'6).

I have a more modern navy blue pin striped suit, but I outgrew the pants and there is no more material to let out on the waist! i really hope a tailor can add material to make the waistline bigger...even if it doesn't match...a belt can cover that patchwork up heh. I really like my navy suit *sigh

I'm not so fashion knowledgable....I'm wondering...is the tie clip too much being that I had a vest on? lol

08-26-2005, 06:04 PM
Awsome suit... might be pressed to find an occasion to wear it tho... but still a great looking suit!!


08-26-2005, 10:06 PM
thanks 8ball....you don't think it looks too um...pimpish? oh i'll find reasons to wear it....even for a regular day at work, or a casual friday just to be a jerk. i like dressing up anyway

08-27-2005, 09:28 AM
it looks way overboard to me. Jus personal preference

08-27-2005, 11:06 AM
It's the colors that make it look old. It it was a black suit, black vest and a dark silver shirt with a black and silver tie it would look ace.

08-27-2005, 12:16 PM
Ya, if that pic was b/w you would look old school for sure. DO it and post it here lol.

08-27-2005, 03:24 PM
figured might as well make the knot big a la American Psycho.

There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman; some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me: only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable... I simply am not there.

08-27-2005, 04:12 PM
black and white. yeah maybe the tie clip is too much. it stands out even more in the b&w pic. and wearing black suits to job interviews are generally considered a no-no. i've heard its best to go with grey or navy.


08-27-2005, 04:19 PM
Where did you hear that? Blue may be a bit more busnissey but if I was an employer I could care less whether someone came in wearing a blue, grey or black suit.

08-27-2005, 04:57 PM
several interview how to dress type websites. black is considered more fashionable and blue and grey are more conservative.

08-27-2005, 05:20 PM
I think the suit is just a little to big for you if you ask me. The b/w pic makes that more obvious I think.
