Christmas fit. Took the picture in a hurry; there are a bunch of weird tucks to the fabric of the jacket & pants that stand out in this that weren't really present in person.


  • I think you're mostly making this work, but two things I don't like. The first I've never seen before, but why are your wool pants so fitted, like a skinny jean? They hug you at the things and actually seem to taper downward, making your sweet Grensons look like clown shoes. I don't like that look, especially combined with the multilayered heaviness of your top; I think I'd recommend these Gap x Ovadia & Sons pants seen here over them for the look you're trying to go for

    Second, why cheapen an overall good combination with tacky wrist jewelry? It's like, wow "cool, casual, sophisticated" and then BAM! "A&F college student". Obviously you can tell I'm not a fan of most wrist jewelry on men, so take that as you will.

    All this IMHO of course.

  • Thanks for all of the input! Looking at it now I definitely agree that the pants/shoes combo is odd and if I wear those pants I will do so with a much slimmer shoe in the future. They are actually kind of a home tailoring experiment; I wanted to try a heavyish wool trouser that was rather slim but it definitely looks off with a larger shoe (that was among the first times I had put on the Grensons, so I'm still getting a feel for it). On the jewelry, they are actually wristbands from some music festivals. I agree that they look tacky but they hold a lot of sentimental value and are conversation pieces to be sure. I have been having a hard time talking myself into getting rid of them.
