Looking slim, old boy! Did you shed a few pounds?
You should go with a green jacket to complete the Oompa-Loompa look.
I thought Don Cherry was the only one rocking that collar these days.
Not a fan of this outfit, but Caid has some really nice stuff. Are you taking a trip to Japan soon?
Wow... Nick Carroway might just want his clothes back.
Fucking awesome, ol' boy. A little too much going on there for my taste, especially for the orifice, but I like it nonetheless. Nice.
The high contrast patterns of the coat and vest are too strong to be next to each other. This sort of thing is easier with darker winter tones, as all the colors blend together more softly.It's November up here. The white trousers are way out of season. The vest would look better under a darker coat, and with a club or foulard tie. The large patterned houndstooth coat is so different than anything commonly seen that I really can't comment.than anysthi
Once again, trying too hard. This is a mess.
TOO much. It works but is forced. No need to have so much mix and match...er, mish mash, going on. It's totally like walking down the street holding a sign that says PLEASE LOOK AT ME. Again, it is forced but it works...it does NOT have any of that understated elegance to it.
Looks like a Halloween costume. Emphasis on the "costume." If it looks like you're trying too hard, you're trying too hard.
You look nice Richard, but may I ask where you are going? It may not be appropriate for the occasion.
Oh goodness. Individually each item is attractive. But together it's just too much. If two items were replaced with something more neutral, the entire look would improve. As it stands now, I see WASP carnival barker.
You've sported and shown some decent outfits over time. This is not one of them. The sum of the parts does not make a good whole. Too much at once. Looks as if you need a cane, hat and stage to dance upon. Additionally to comment on previous postings, jeans will never be GTH pants or WASP attire when worn with a tie and sportcoat. No matter what Ralph Lauren prints, jeans for places other than the farm and especially with a tie is hollywood style gauche at its best.
Richard:The earlier post Re: this outfit and jeans was my first after months of reading your blog. I did not realize until then that you must approve each post. This means you have approved for publication the first shot "looking slim" above and many other nasty barbs aimed at you. I will say while you do have some lackings you certainly manage to take critique and mean spirited jabs with a gentleman's stride. Very WASP like and well done.
Overdone...busy....seizure inducing...foppish...unsightly...ooohh look at me....contrived...Shal we contine?
It's obviously meant as a joke, not as something to be taken seriously. Why post this?
Two sizes two small.I dare you to button that jacket.
First, is this you Richard? And second, no way. No. There are three very distinct patterns-all very bold and powerful in their own way-that are too much to the eye when put together. To me, classic clothing enhances the person's character. This outfit screams "LOOK AT ME!!" Not wasp at all.
I think you aren't trying very hard. Did Chensy break your spirit?
I've been a harsh critic of Richard's clothes, writing, and all-around dumb-ass outlook, so it is only fair to praise him when praise is due. Although a little on the carnival-barker side, this ensemble works. Well done.However, he should be careful about where he appears in in--he'd require surgery 10 minutes after arriving in south Brooklyn in this rig.
No. Just wrong. No. No. No.
Hmmm. . . I like the jacket and vest separately, but together the look is just a little on the busy side.Best Regards,Ulrich von B.
The waistecoat is nice but the jacket should be closed. Beautiful tie but too bold for the tattersal and checks.
It's too busy, go change.
I like the attire, however i do wish to comment on all of your pictures at once. But first let me clarify that I do love the blog, no matter what comments or critiques I might utter from here on forward.So.. I have noticed that you look at a fair amount of photographs, both the older ones and newer photos and advertisements. However, there is more to learn from those than just inspiration for attire. Take a closer look at stances and postures. Always you will find that the back is straight, shoulders back, yet still relaxed. This gives that air of confidence, of power and of a WASP. Other things that come to mind are that they often have a hand in their pocket, or behind their back or clasped together at the front. And especially models have stances where they shift their weight onto one leg or the other. This gives them a stance more pleasing to the eye than your simple forward stance. To be truly honest. I outright hate the stance you use in your own pictures, because they make the outfit more boring and bland than they are. You're a WASP and you like to have fun and there ought to be some air of arrogance in your stance, in your body language, because you know you are better than the blokes who simply never learnt to even dress properly. But I cannot detect it in your stance.This makes the pictures and the outfits somewhat boring.For example, with the attire you are wearing in this pic I would like you to picture in your minds eye the setting I will now describe.Stand with your back against the wall, your left foot about a foot away from the wall. Your right knee bent and your right foot flat against the wall. Then either fold your arms and move your right hand towards your beard. look slightly towards the right and look thoughtful. The picture would look more natural and you would send out a message of being relaxed yet sophisticated. Something else you could try, would be sitting in a comfortable recliner, legs crossed, one arm on an arm rest and the other holding a pipe.I honestly believe that different poses would make the outfits look even better. I look forward to more good posts.Greetings,Denis W. Oei(On a side note, I am (merely) a hobbyist photographer, so my word isn't conclusive, however I do implore you to consider my suggestions.)
Not something you should wear in public......
I must add that the shirt has an oddly high collar, and that the proportion of the largish collar to the skinny ties is unflatttering.What argyle socks and loafers went with this?
Stay away from places where there are strobe lights.
Nice pieces but to busy togeher! Major Overkill!
Extremely bold, and holds together, but does give one the uneasy feeling that it could explode at any second. The white pants would work better if you lived in Florida, where it was 82 yesterday.
Tailor Caid Days is a Japanese blog highlighting clothing available at the Tailor Caid shop in Japan, or something to that effect.This is not Richard. Richard should have been a little more descriptive in this post because the readers are obviously confused. Unless that was done intentionally. Keep up the good work Rich.
It looks great! A little busy but WASPy none the less! Good show!
The next time, perhaps a white shirt, a blue shirt, or a blue shirt with white collars and cuffs (and regardless of color, shirts with cuffs that show when the jacket is on), a blue and gold striped necktie, and a white pocket handkerchief might be something to try and compare.....
It's depends on the occasion of course, but for summer afternoon cocktails where you want to be the centre of attention, it's terrific. It makes perfect sense if you're feeling relaxed, chatty and have a martini in your hand.
