Experimenting with lighting.
I didn’t frame well, or my pocket square would be more in the shot.
The tie is from The Knottery.

theodinspire said: How tall are you?

About 6’1”.
The two blue blazers barely covered the model’s ass and the body was barely longer than the sleeves. It is probably the aspect of the current trendy look that I like the least.

Suit Supply. Your blazers look nice, but they’re too goddamn short.

This episode of the Alton Browncast with Sid Mashburn has re-piqued my interest in menswear.

As the days grow cooler, I’m wearing clothes I find more interesting and will once again start documenting my combinations, even though they’ll be retreads of looks past.

My style, at its highest, is most like Doug Guggenheim. I like suspenders. He’s often in a spread collar. He doesn’t shy away from a great double breasted suit.
Clyde Overholt is too prone to a douche-y shirt.
I wouldn’t dream of aspiring to Marty Kaan.

Sometimes, you just have to wear a seersucker suit. This is very casually put together, with the pink OCBD and copper knit tie. I can only get away with this because I work from home.

Swimsuit recommendations?!?

It’s summer and I’d like to get a new pair of swim trunks. 

<$50

NO BOARDS SHORTS.

Ideally, no elasticized waistbands.

My Imaginary Well-Dressed Toddler Daughter

My new favourite website.

One time when Quinoa and I got separated in a busy train station, she thankfully remembered our safety training: stay in one place, look spectacular, and don’t talk to poor people.”

I’m not 100% sure what I should do with this Tumblr.

My style has stabilized. I never properly examined its evolution. The more embarrassing moments are lost to my memory. I should’ve recorded them. 

Alas, here I sit, in a Lands End Canvas sweatshirt and shorts, having settled on the compromise of quality for the cheapness of their wares. Do I have anything more to share? 

I am unsure.

Is a tuxedo t-shirt with notch lapels more of a no-no than a tuxedo t-shirt with peak or shawl lapels?

Fitting
Ah, the benefits of losing weight. I had to stow this Cantarelli jacket when I gained too much weight to wear it without excessive strain at the button point. 
I&#8217;m undecided if the wool knit tie is too incoherent with the warm weather jacket. I just can&#8217;t stomach saying good-bye to all my burgundy ties for the season.

This is more stylish than anything labelled #menswear.

Cleaning

Chief Wiggum was wrong, you can get chocolate out. 

I was baking and neglected to put on an apron. The top photo shows the result of this negligence. As one of my workhorse shirts, I really didn’t want to sacrifice it to the baking gods, even if the resultant cake was very good.

I refused to resign myself and the shirt to this chocolatey fate and deployed my favourite laundry weapon: OxiClean. I’m not one to wantonly tout a brand, but this stuff really works.

First, I made a concentrated slurry out of the powder that I put directly on the stain. I let that sit for about two hours. Then I soaked the shirt overnight in the concentration recommended for ‘tough laundry stains.’ Finally, I did a cold water wash. There is no trace of the chocolate.

Note: Sorry for the wildly different colour cast. I was shooting under quite different lighting conditions. Trust me that this is the same shirt.
