The Weekly Web Roundup: Dec 22, 2019

The second to last WWR for 2019!

This week: spectacular vintage cloth, classic proportions, jazzing up the ‘menswear uniform’ (navy jacket, grey trousers) and more.


What I like:

This is a stunning vintage patterned cloth which has been put to good use. It’s well proportioned with pleasing lapels, excellent button choice, a lovely shoulder and accessorised conservatively to let the cut and cloth be the stars.


What I like:

Everything is well chosen and coordinated here, but what wins me over is the excellent cut of the trousers. I’ve a soft spot for a good full cut trouser.

For those interested, Peter has recently written an interesting article on the creative ways to stand out in black tie dress code for StyleForum’s blog.


What I like:

For the most part, I’m really not a fan of gingham and tattersall patterns.

I couldn’t go past this outfit though. The bold pattern turns this from a conservative menswear uniform into a unique, expressive ensemble. Excellent work here by Sem.


What I like:

This one’s really just all about the shoulder. You can see the roping on that sleevehead from a mile away!

It’s also a good example of how a conservative outfit is the best place to utilise bold accessories. The tie and pocket square have no competitors here. Other than the shoulder roping!


What I like:

This is an outfit with a vintage appeal, despite its non-vintage nature. The jacket fabric is loaded with texture, while the tie and trousers do wonders to complement each other. A plain shirt is well utilised here.

That’s all for today!
