What is /fa/'s opinion of vintage menswear? I sort of collect stuff from the '20s to '50s, and it's a real bonus when it fits. I get more compliments in authentic vintage suits than modern suits haha. Pictured here- late-'40s "bold look" era herringbone jacket with early-'40s tie, shirt, and tie bar (early-'50s charcoal gabardine trousers out of frame). I just really like the fit and aesthetics of this period. What do you all think?

It was in fashion at the time. Now fashion has moved on. It's great that you have your own style but people on this board usually disregard anything of the sorts of what you like. Usually people who say they are "classy" are neckbeards and have a bad stigma around them. Now you may be a troll you may not be. All I am saying is keep your individual style and disregard what other people say.

your babyface does not go well with wearing suits
let alone grandpa suits

Haha! Oh yeah, I left out my embroidered pony fedora that I tip for m'lady's pleasure. No, I understand what you mean. I really don't wear the stuff very often, collecting it is just a hobby of mine. I figured maybe there were other collectors here of this era of stuff, too.

Are there even arms in those sleeves? Fucking become a man before you try to dress like one you faggot.
>>
>>8557815
Wide, no taper sleeves that drape from the sleeve head were a characteristic of the cut. I guess it doesn't help that I am missing my left arm haha. All that's in that sleeve is an aluminum tube prosthetic

idk in general it's a bit too... blocky(?) for me but that's because I'm a hungry skeleton and look retarded in everything that isn't skinny/slim fit
>>

oh dear

>>8557673
i like it op. I don't own a suit myself but would like to some day, I just don't have much formal occasions.
>>
>>8557892
People were built a bit blockier back then haha. Yeah, a lot of the silhouette is very straight and square, but drape-cut suits of just before WWII had a good deal of waist suppression and a higher waist in general, two things that are on their way back.
>>
Notice also the bump under the left shoulder pad- that's where my actual natural shoulder ends. These suits fit me better because the armholes are cut higher with a bit of padding, fitting my new arm better and looking more symmetrical and natural. Newer suits sag really badly in that shoulder and arm for me haha

you look like a rejected extra from the great gatsby

Holy shit, fucking rekt

In all seriousness anon, looks good.
Gives me a total fallout vibe, but I like it.

Have fun with your hobby!

It looks stupid. Go fuck urself.

You should wrote that in the first place. Collecting this stuff gives you knowledge on trend's progress, tailoring and shit, even though you look crappy in it and straight out of fedoralounge forums.

Honestly, I'm more interested in the way of customizing and exposing your bionic arm ver. 0.1 to make it look cool.
I think it could go well with lunarcore.

I really liked it, OP.
The only thing I would do to change it a bit would be to choose a different pocket square fold.
Your fold in tat picture looks a bit goofy, if you don't mind me saying it.

Google different folds and try them on. If you are going with a 40s look go all the way.

Babies wore suit or blazers too back in the day.
People think suits are for gramps becouse they are the only ones wearing them daily (at least in europe)
>>
>>8558386
>at least in Europe
Nigger where in Europe do you live to see people wearing suits daily without being businessmen

But if your name's Knox... Why does your handkerchief have 'J.T.' on it?
>>
>>8557874
Do like Admiral Nelson did and pin the sleeve to your jacket
>>
>>8558427
Gramps are wearing them daily thats what i meant. Also menswear is popular in bigger cities.

op you look familiar

I like the 40s look. What's the oldest piece you have? I own a jacket from 1904 that's subtle enough that you could wear it today with no problem.

fucking kill yourself
nothin "bold" about this

>>
>>8559592
Educate yourself, fuckwit. The "Bold Look" was a change in menswear after WWII
>>
>>8557673

At least when you do it, you seem to do it right.Not like fedorafags that try and blend modern with vintage

Oh dear.
Well, you know what they say. It is what it is.

Haha no problem. I happened when I was 15 and just started driving. I had the window rolled down and my arm out to adjust the mirror, and the driver of a semi in the left lane got distracted and drifted. Trailer tore my arm off at a combined vehicle speed of 120 miles an hour. Could've been worse haha. Could've been a head-on
>>
>>8561830
Thats a miracle
>>
>>8561830
holy shit. that's crazy, glad you're alright though anon. if it's not weird can i see a photo of your prosthetic? not gonna lie i think it'd be cool to see you do this kinda stuff >>8558215

I don't have any photos of my own with me, they're on my computer at home. I will see if my wife can email them to my phone. It is similar to the one that this man has, except for the aluminum sections of mine, which aren't as bulky.

>>8559585
My oldest is a tuxedo jacket from around 1915. The one thing I dislike about pre-'20s suits is the sack cut of the jacket (still prominent on Ivy League cuts). Yeah, menswear now has a lot of influence from the early 1900's and 1960's.
