The Shooman

I want to do the `whole 3' this time around when l give my speech in front of thousands of people. The talk is not to bankers and conservative people so l can afford to be unique in my style.

The `whole 3' = pocketsquare, tie and flower.

I need to do this carefully, but l want to go bold and do it my way. This is an idea up thought about this morning while getting dressed:

* deep red colour chisel toe quarter brogue shoos by G&G
* navy wool pants
* white/light blue medium width striped shirt
* bone tattersall patterned sportscoat
* deep red/navy traditional paterned striped tie
* white polka dot p/s with navy background
* red rose that is only partly opened.

The red rose and red in the tie balance and anchor the top and bottom of the outfit by matching the shoos to the rose/tie. The pocketsquare also balances the outfit by matching the trousers to the top with a p/s and blue in the tie. The coat and shirt provide the perfect background for allowing the bold accessories to come out in a unique way. The accessories will also draw people to look towards my face.

What do you think?

I definitely want to do `the 3' in a unique way. Doing two things is too easy.
 
No navy odd pants please. I'd say a navy suit would be much better. Not a fan of polka dot squares either, that pattern should be saved for ties exclusively.

There's too much going on. Red shoes, navy trousers and white sport coat, you'll look like the American flag. Wont go over well in Oz
 
Why not use a mid-sized white carnation à la Prince Bernhard? Despite the closeness of its color to the sport coat, this live flower will always be noticeable as a boutonnière in a quiet and understated way. I think the navy trousers are more than fine in this combination unless you desperately want to avoid the "Northern Lights." Most people shy away from navy in this department to avoid clashing, as they have too many shades of blue in their wardrobe as odd jackets or because they simply don't want to be caught with a combination that is significantly lighter above the waist (hence, "Northern Lights"). (For my part, I tend to think that navy pants are a great complement to most shades of grey and brown, and I don't mind chasing after the Aurora Borealis once every so often.)

I think you have a great idea for the shirt. Once again, to tone things down a little more, I would go with an oxford-cloth in light-blue university stripes (and, perhaps, this is exactly what you mean by "medium width." Everyone seems to have their own name for these things. . .). As for the pocket square, I concur with your color combination, but share some of Monkeyface Monkeyface 's distaste for the polka dots. I am somewhat stunted here, with my inability to post links and such, but perhaps you could do better with a blue handkerchief with white piping.

I hope that this is not too opinionated as a first substantive post. . . (It certainly is pretentious and affected, my apologies!) At any rate, I would love to see pictures of separate items or, better yet, the entire outfit.

Yes, wearing `the three' in those colours is wayyy too over the top. Maybe even wearing `the three' is too ambitious and trying to hard. Wearing clothes successfully is being able to "feel it" and to avoid "trying to make it" or "forcing it",

Maybe I should stick to my old style of a nice tie and flower without a pocketsquare.

Yes, l was actually thinking along those lines. Definitely a nice understated flower for this time of year in Australia.

Definitely want to avoid a suit. Why? Because everyone else will have one on. I also want to add lots of colour in my clothes like l always do.

That is what l mean.

Great idea! Thanks.

Not too opinionated at all.

I haven't given too much thought to things yet, but l will sort it out in the next week. My intuition will tell me what will work and what won't, especially after l lay things out and look at the combinations.

MEGA TOP in my opinion!

Great picture. A good reminder that l was way over the top.

O.k...l was thinking about wearing a navy tie with while pinhole dots and navy ps with white piping along with a pink shirt and an elegant pink flower to match the shirt. Also dark brown shoos. That may work.

Pulling off `the 3' is quite difficult. Still, l wouldn't mind doing it. I've never done the whole 3 before, but l want to do it AT LEAST once.
 
Then again a bone suit, with a lighter tie and accessories with a pink flower would be even better. The real issue is the navy trousers and navy tie/accessories with bone sportscoat, it is not as high level as the real deal done properly.

O/k, l am lacking some things to pull the look off to perfection, so maybe a flower and tie and that's it. I need the flower to state that this guy is not your usual type of guy.

Clothes are very enjoyable so it is good to think about these things sometimes. Why? It brings about creativity. I don't like predictable and boring, l like something unique because l am unique. None-the-less, nothing too crazy and silly either.

You are speaking to the masses, a little bit of Unordinary flash is OK.
 
I will not be speaking to the masses, it is a private event.

Speaking in a big hall.

I want to look amazing!

* tailored silk/wool fully canvassed Burberry sportscoat (back when Burberry were making amazing clothes)
* bespoke navy trousers
* dark brown Edward Green oxford shoes
* deep pink shirt (might even get a new one)
* Drakes navy tie with white pin holes
* navy ps with white piping
* No name navy sox
* braces or belt?? (not sure yet)
* pink azalea flower from my garden (worn those before with bone coats and they are a HIT)

It is a unique look, but not as crazy as the picture in above post (girl with "pretty face").
 
I think the rules for Stage Clothes are very different to everyday or business wear. Its a pity more men didn't understand that. You can be much more flamboyant and have (even SHOULD have) more contrast on stage and wear things that wouldn't work in everyday life.

Like this, right?

How about this look with navy flannel trousers and dark brown Edward Green shoos. Personally l think the brown tie and ps allows a flower to be worn without the outfit looking over done.

too many differing colors. if you ditched the pink shirt for white you might, and i stress might, be able to swing it. as it stands now its going to look like a mess with different colored shoes and pants along with 4 pattern bingo up top.

Oof that looks even worse than I had imagined. Worst used car salesman caricature I've ever seen. Please burn that jacket. I'm sure you can do better.
 
Wow Monkeyface, interesting comments. Used car salesman? Ouch!

Maybe i'll go for a completely different look, maybe a white shirt and completely different tie and ps and flower. I might try another bone coat.

I'm generally not a fan of jackets that have shi(r)t patterns. Anyways, don't wear this to the event if you want to be taken seriously. Ignore what I said if it's a used car salesman or clown conference.

get rid of that pocket square, then you will be top

Yeah. I might just do what l do best, the cravat and flower look with no ps, or maybe a tie and flower. I was trying to do all three (ps/tie/flower), but it is not my natural look, so maybe I need to stick to doing what l do best.

I feel in control and comfortable with the flower and cravat.

Shooey - I'm thinking - - big audience - say 500+ - big hall - up on stage - try navy blazer, white or very pale pink shirt, solid knit tie -= blue, black or burgundy or a rep block stripe tie - or horizontal strip knit tie - I have a beuty a navy knit square end with a light blue broad strip across - pale grey trousers, brown or burgundy shoes - burgundy socks, white or pale pocket hankie, - flower in lapel will then work well - you'll be visible and make a statement with the block colours - navy blazer and pale trouser.
