ON SUBTLETY IN DRESS

AS MUCH AS I LOVE HOW FTHOGFARMER AND ADG DRESS, I AM A “SOMEWHAT CONSERVATIVE” DRESSER (ALTHOUGH FTHOG IS SENDING ME SOME SPIFFY CLUB CRAVATES IN BRIGHT COLORS, AND, THANKS TO HIS AND ADG’S INFLUENCE, I’M HAVING SOME HORIZONTAL STRIPE SHIRTS MADE UP).  EVEN IF YOU AREN’T A DANDY OR A PEACOCK, YOU CAN STILL EXPRESS YOUR CLOTHING TASTE AND SENSE OF STYLE SUBTLELY AND WITH SOME UNIQUENESS AND FLAIR.

THINK PATCH POCKETS, TICKET POCKETS, PEAK LAPELS, SIDE TAB PANTS, SINGLE PLEAT PANTS, DOT, CHECK, OR HERRINGBONE SOCKS,” NEAT” PATTERNED TIES, MIXING A VARIETY OF SMALL, SUBTLE PATTERNS, OR LEANING ON A PARTICULAR COLOR ACCENT FREQUENTLY (FOR ME, ORANGE OR PURPLE). 

I FREQUENTLY WEAR FITS THAT APPEAR ALMOST SOLID FROM A DISTANCE, BUT CLOSE-UP REVEAL DIFFERENT PATTERNS, COLORS AND TEXTURES.  SMALL GLEN-PLAIDS,STRIPES AND HERRINGBONES ARE GOOD EXAMPLES.  MY FITS DON’T ALWAYS JUMP OUT AT THE VIEWER , BUT I BELIEVE/HOPE UPON FURTHER EXAMINATION, THEY ARE INTERESTING.

TAKE TODAY’S FIT-

SAMUELSOHN CUSTOM SPORT COAT—PEAK LAPELS, TICKET POCKET.  IT APPEARS SOLID NAVY BLUE FROM A DISTANCE, BUT IS A NAVY/ MID- BLUE CHECK.

SAMUELSOHN MTM PANTS – SIDE TAB, SINGLE PLEAT. THEY APPEAR LIGHT TAN (OR GRAY) FROM A DISTANCE, BUT ARE A HEATHERED GRIEGE (GRAY/ BEIGE). THEY HAVE A TEXTURED APPEARANCE IN PERSON, ALTHOUGH THE PHOTOS MAY NOT SHOW IT.

SKIP GAMBERT CUSTOM SHIRT – THE SHIRT APPEARS ECRU FROM A DISTANCE, BUT HAS A BLACK, CREAM AND PURPLE TATTERSALL PATTERN.

E. G. CAPPELLI CUSTOM TIE – APPEARS SOLID BUT HAS A “NEAT” PATTERN.

( KENT WANG P S, BRESCIANI HOUNDSTOOTH SOCKS AND C&J MTO MONKS WITH CUSTOM TOE MEDALLION).

IF YOU NEED TO DRESS CONSERVATIVELY AT WORK, TRY SPICING THINGS UP WITH SOME OF THESE SUBTLE DETAILS … YOUR UNIQUE STYLE WILL EVENTUALLY EMERGE……..          MS
