Menswear Dog fashion tips:





When it's 90 degrees outside you have a lot more to worry about than a bowtie. Being burned alive is one, for example.

If there is one item of clothing you would get tailor-made, what would it be?

I'd say a toss-up between a blazer and shoes.

I do not see how any one can know. David Rothman's IQ has not been mentioned (and he only had a K-12 education).

M65 definitely wasn't for me. I bought a Swiss woolly shirt instead.



I like the color and simplicity.

I just went through an online "men's" store and scrolled through three pages of clothing.  All T-shirts.

If they were plain white or black t-shirts, I approve. Otherwise, anathema.

I bought two Riley's dress shirts today. Not perfect nor particularly cheap but somewhat ok.

Three pages of black and white t-shirts would be boring.  They were screen-printed ones; some were "vintage".  Nothing I would pay my hard-earned money for.

Is there a "How a Shirt Should Fit" infographic for men who are not as slim as depicted?

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

Why there should be? The same logic applies to them too.

The key is to wear clothes that fit.  As much as I want to wear those 32" waist pants that are hanging in my closet, they would look ridiculous.

The epitome of style and good taste:

I wore one to my prom and for my Confirmation.
With a shell choker.

Please tell me you still own these.
I only wish I still had them....and could fit into them!!

What do you think of this one? The design seems fairly timeless. Just wondering whether it is too dressy to be worn with jeans and t-shirts and the like. I fear that the watch would seem a bit out of place and I'm looking for an everyday watch.

Chrome finish is fine for all hours and all occasions. Gold would make it automatically very formal.

“Everything in this life passes away — only God remains, only He is worth struggling towards. We have a choice: to follow the way of this world, of the society that surrounds us, and thereby find ourselves outside of God; or to choose the way of life, to choose God Who calls us and for Whom our heart is searching.”
― Fr. Seraphim Rose

It is what is inside that counts for an everyday watch. In your case an ETA 2824-2. You might be interested in a take down of this movement here:

Yesterday I've had the (dis)pleasure of going to a white tie ball. Only when men have gone through that they know the challenges facing women wearing strapless dresses. You're continuously afraid that your tailcoat will give way and show underneath your tailcoat.

Too bad that only today I got round to tailor the waistcoat a bit more to my size.

I'm thinking of buying Bundeswehr's moleskin trousers but I dislike the cargo pockets. I wonder if they could be de-attached without the resulting trousers looking silly. I guess I could just buy another trousers without the pockets but they'd probably be a lot more expensive.
