Here's to this one being better than the last
>>15975380Damn I leave this place for a couple months and the general becomes complete garbage. You guys were always pathetic though
Advice on mixing blue and green?
>choosing Bateman as the OP pic
>>15975864He has a very good dress sense, that is something you cannot deny.
>>15975380Yeah, one can hope, but it is quite unlikely.
>>15975250patrick baitman isn't trad nor ivy nor prepgj provin that this general is just a binch of unfashionable neckbeards who live on 4chinz
>>15975924Patrick Bateman went to Yale, didn't he?
>>15976462Harvard. He made fun of Paul Allen, who went to Yale.
Is it me or the quality of these threads is decreasing with each edition?
>>15975924He went to Phillips Exeter, sounds preppy to me
>>15976642No, it's not only you, I mean half of the posts are always about how the quality has gone down since less and less people are posting but as we all know, /tip/ is a Christian general so I'm sure it's just because many of them have momentarily given up /tip/ for lent.
>>15976515That makes it a lot funnier then. I really gotta rewatch that movie.
>>15976647Pathetic post lol
Alright since you fags won't stop whining here's a fit in my poorly lit basement
>>15976713Sweater is Jamiesen's of Shetland
>>15976713S L I M F I T
>>15976713Looks pretty decent but are you ever gonna use that bike to actually lose that gut? Once you do the fit will look much better.
>>15976666You're nearly marked with the mark of the beast so you're clearly pathetic, Satan.
>>15976713Are you the slim fit anon from like 2 or 3 years ago???>>15976666Based
>>15975250Picked up a Canali Navy Cashmere Blazer today at Goodwill for $35. Will post when it's back from the cleaners
>>15976713Love the waxed cotton, adore the sweater. I would switch the pants out for navy/brown corduroy pants and get some shoes that are the color of the pants you're wearing right now.
NHV anons should come to Mory's with me when it opens
>>15977140>paying $35 for anything at goodwill>getting it dry cleaned immediately Yikes...>>15977163I’ll go
>>15976732>Pants don't fit like a parachute >S L I M They're clearly straight cut
>>15977124He stopped posting a year ago, not two. Also what's with the three obnoxious question marks?
>>15977256Mate, straight cuts don't taper to such an extent.
>>15977262*to that extent.
>>15976713Nice costume. Not every single piece in your outfit needs to come straight from the preppy handbook. Learn to mix in non-tip elements and you won’t look like such a larper
>>15977258No it’s been at least a couple years. Feel free to prove me wrong though
>>15977297You're an absolute retard if you think that he looks like a larper.
>>15977423Stop falling for bait you stupid faggot
u like her outfit /fa/?
>>15976713I don't like oxblood pants with Barbour, otherwise fit is good but lose some fat, dammit!
Are those pants /tip/ ?What would you pair them with ?
>>15977199Fucking draft dodgers
summers coming and this fine gentleman wants a new jacket and shirt to keep him cool and tastefully dressed in the beer garden, what do you suggest to him?
>>15978466Wool trousers are a tip staple, but those are too short
>>15979041The good old classic white/blue ocbd with a navy blazer.
>>15979249at his size? the fella clearly has a large gut but he also has wide shoulders
>>15977213>not cleaning goodwill clothes immediately after buying themshoo shoo, hippy
>>15979267Well the guy requested a jacket so you're gonna have to go over and talk with him.
>>15979881I like wearing stained thrifted /tip/ clothing as I imagine the hairy fat daddy who sweated in the clothes for gay sexual gratification
>>15980321are you me
>>15980338>>15980321fucking loser cucks
>>15980321this but with women’s clothing
>>15980357incredibly high test and enviable
>>15978466I'd pair with a cable knit sweater or a simple patterned shirt. Even a simple white t-shirt would look cool, just not TIP. Probably some simple derbies for shoes. Where did you find them? I like them.
>>15981299I would rather you tuck that shirt into your trousers
No that’s gay
>>15981299Why do post the exact same fit every time? At least tuck in your shirt, holy shit.
>>15981299hello professor, how was vegas?>>15980302do you have no other ideas? tweed seems a little warm for summer
>>15980446>>15980593French brand "De Fursac" : https://www.defursac.fr/en/p-pantalon-homme-bronze-20hp3russ-rp14-42.html
>>15981622WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU TALKIN ABOUT YOU DUMB CUNT, I CLEARLY SAID NAVY BLAZER, NOT TWEEDSPORTS COAT
>>15981443Tucking in your shirt looks better 100% of the time as it accentuates your shoulders by thinning your waist, giving you a nice taper (unless you're a muscle devoid twat such as yourself).
>Smacks >>15981622 With ruler Silence!
>>15981653>shoots you in between your eyes
>>15981649i am saying i think the texture and heft of tweed would suit a larger gentleman, but i am not so sure about a navy blazer
Bros where do I buy high waist trousers from? I'm from the EU.
>>15981882To add to this, are made to measure online stores like Luxire good?
>>15981885Yes, luxire is supposedly good.
>>15981882Scavini has some, but I don't know if they ship oustide of France
>>15981631Why do these companies feel the need to have their own sizing instead of actual measurements?
Hello /tip/ aka /losers/ general
>>15981740Well then what do you recommend for the summer? Maybe tweed wouldn't be so bad considering it's not all so warm over in Northern England.
>>15982848tweed would do for cooler summer days, but it tends to be bipolar up here. larger gentlemen though tend to be less than comfortable in just a shirt, and men of his sort like having jacket pockets available.
>>15983005Well, I dunno what to advise, i guess morbidly obese people were born to never be /tip/, I mean they can't even see their tip :(
>>15983069they dont typically need to, thats the wifes job after all
>>15982672good pic, saved
>>15975250i remember mixing what i learned from this thread, with what i learned form the workwear threads, and absolutely loving the stylekeep on keepin on homies
>>15983483And what did you learn?
is there any political or cultural reason for you guys liking trad/ivy/preppy looks?i like it because it genuinely feels comfortable
>>15987275I like it because it's both dressy and casual at the same time, and doesn't make you look autistic if you can pull it off.
>>15987728that's trueit's a flexible style
>>15987275I simply wear it because I like the style! It's got a vast array of fabrics, rich colours and garments for one to choose from. There are other reasons to why I wear it but this one is the most important to me.
>>15987789what are the other reasons
>>15987867One of them being just to look well put together in a way that normies consider smart, which will usually make them respect me without even opening my mouth.
let this general die already
>>15988310Why is there one fag who always spergs out in all of these threads? These are no worse than any other thread on this shit board
>>15988313Man, I don't fucking know why some cunt really wants this general to die off, but maybe because he's a sprezz fag who has a burning hate for /tip/ but of course, once you mention this some cunts start to pounce on your ass.
>>15988313>>15988346he does it because you idiots keep feeding himignore trolls newfags
>>15988352Good advice but it's fucking annoying and not like these faggots are packing their bags anytime soon.
>>15988313>>15988346>>15988381First time looking at a /tip/ thread in about 2 months. Looks like sprezz is just as dead. Not sure why you're trying so hard to hang on to this husk, or why you get so hurt when I point out the obvious.
>>15988346He is in both threads and we keep replying
>>15988346>but maybe because he's a sprezz fag who has a burning hate for /tip/The troll originates from the tip threads. After he fucked up them, he came to sprezz to repeat the process. He probably goes back and fourth now. He will attack anyone that posts a fit leading to no people posting and the threads dying and attack all advice given.It's LITERALLY some pathetic teenage boy in his room doing it. It's really easy to screw up generals on a slow moving board giving the impression the troll is more than 1 person. If people want to be negative, it should be constrictive criticism, if it's not, you have the troll on your hands.
>>15988513>1 person ruined /tip/ and /sprezz/sure cecil. my bet is on the SF state anon.
>>15988545Well both threads were fine until it happened, and 5 people or so wouldn't have turned up in roughly in the same time period to attack the same threads. When people post a fit, just make fun of it, tell them it's cringe and does not work. When people give advice, question it, say it is wrong, do not listen to it. 1 person can easily do that on a slow moving thread and appear to be much greater. On a fast moving board they get drowned out by the other posters, or on name boards, obviously their troll name gets outed quickly. That's why without people tripping in these threads, the only way around it is by the generals having a kind of rule that posters follow or be ignored, such as constructive criticism only, outright bullshit and attacking outs the troll.
>>15988474>>15988513Someone needs to bribe the jannies to btfo this faggot with a ban and then a bullet.
hahah I SINGLEHANDELY killed sprezz and now tip bow before me
>>15988586I kneel troll-sama
>>15988584Pretty sure cecil's trip was banned, which is why he is using a different name now
>>15988647Good to know but I wasn't talking about him, I'm talking about this unsightly troll who shit up both threads.
>>15988659Bro have you seen this thread? What is there to even troll
>>15988684Nah, nah, nah, every single time there's this one dopey twat who always screeches on how he wants the /tip/ threads to die and such
>>15988684Let us see how this thread started...>>15975428That's the 2nd post in. Good threads mean posting your fit and getting confidence and feeling good about yourself from the replies, and at worse, a little help if you don't look so good. Whenever you post a fit and are told you look like shit, you're a larper, your average cut pants are slim, and so on, why would anyone post a fit? It's a toxic environment. Threads should be about pulling them up and enjoying their clothing journey, not ripping people to pieces and their self esteem. That's what the troll does. But like I said, it's not hard. Slow moving board and a lot of posters might be young, trying out this style and when people are anxious like that, trolling is even easier.
>>15988706I just looked at the archives of the last few TIP threads, and they look just as dry as this one.PS can you guys keep the trip here? Would be great if he stopped ruining the other menswear threads
>>15982672mfw this is the best post ITT
What's the best amount of break for pants?I saw an infographic on another thread that said pennies are the most formal loafer, is that right?Tips for taking care of OCBDs?
>>15988849No, horse bit loafers are the most formal, it's something you might've seen on the feet of an executive in the 80s and 90s but now a days they're basically extinct and for good reason since most of them are revolting. So second to that come tassel loafers which are associated with homosexuals (/sprezz/). Only then do penny loafers come which to put in the shortest amount of words are the best shoes out there for everyday wear.
>>15988849Break is subjective, keep in mind the les break you gave the the less warmth you conserve (in case u live in colder climates)
>>15988849Really? Trying to start a discussion of stale noob topics isn't going to help this place get any better.
>>15988982Right, make this thread better by posting a fit.
>>15989012No you havent
>>15989022Yes I have
>>15989034Go ahead and prove it then.
>>15989069Asking to post a fit is now trolling, fuck off faggot.
My former boarding school just texted me asking for money. Some of the prep schools must be really desperate
>tfw you have to wear slimshit otherwise it looks like you have wide hipsP-please tell me that this is the fault of the fit and not the cut.
Lurkfag from the last thread here, just wanted to answer some fit questions.>w2c boots?They're Allen Edmonds Fifth Street dress boots, and they're not on the website. Buy them from ebay or get their Hamilton boot if you want something similar.>w2c trousers?I don't know why you would want to, but they're Vineyard Vines Club Pant khakis, and I got them at a discount store (poorfag). They're alright but with their price you might as well just buy secondhand brooks/ralphlauren Yea that's all thanks all for the critiques
give me some trench coat inspo
>>15989069ID on the sweater?
I rarely leave the house, can i get away with buying whatever polo/trousers are on sale at a upmarket department store?
>>15975250Can someone post that picture of the Newman-type actor with brown hair who's wearing a white shirt and sitting down in some kind of middle eastern or egyptian setting been killing myself trying to find it
>>15988849OCBD's are extremely sturdy. Wash after every wear, hang dry and iron. You can skip ironing if you toss them in the dryer on tumble for a few minutes.Break is up to you, your build and what you are wearing. If you aren't sure stick with a half break and you will be safe.
>>15988982but posting snobby digs at noobs is
>>15975250Investment bankers in M&A typically work 75-100 hour weeks. How was Bateman able to do all the stuff he did? Was it because he was a VP and therefore had more freedom as a result of delegating his work to associates and analysts?
>>15991823Cocaine, bro, cocaine.
>>15991994I was referring more to the free time he appears to have. Many investment bankers work until 1am every day, sleep a few hours and are back at the office by 9am the next day. Patrick was always out and about.
>>15991722Nice collar gap bro
>>15991823His dad owned the company. He didn't work at all and only kept the position there because he liked the status he got. Truly /TIP/
>>15991823>Investment bankers in M&A99% of M&A work is through the lawyers. Inv. Bankers take companies public, manage their balance of authorized/outstanding shares, and act as market makers, they don't actually involve themselves in M&A too much except to encourage them in order to 'make a play'
Hey dudes. Can anyone recommend me some herringbone tweed pants? I’d like to spend less than $175. I want to wear them with boots and a leather jacket, and maybe a Henley, for the true old-school look. Also I live up north and just need warmer pants.
>>15994008>I want to wear them with boots and a leather jacket, and maybe a HenleyGet some other trousers, lad...
>>15994158With the combinations mentioned even jeans would be a better, more fitting trouser for your ensemble. Look, if you do manage to find some that you like, go ahead and buy it jf you're so keen but do be aware.
>>15994559what a poorly fit>pants too long>vest too short>ugly green buttons>dirty drab shoesjacket seems off too but hard to tell with that bag
I grow weary of athleisure
>>15994649I would also wear them to the office, with office clothes.I was just wondering if someone could But I think a vintage-style leather jacket + tweed pants would work.
>>15987275For the coming race war
>>15995423A lot of normies would still compliment him on it.
>>15996117definitely, because standards have fallen so much. A tucked in shirt with buttons gets complimented
>>15977199>>15977193> YWN go to an all male YaleFuck bros why even bother
>>15979041Madras shirt with muted colours and a larger check pattern
>>15991823You are probably talking about the book, because in the movie we don't see him do very much. As far as I understand he didn't actually work that much during his working hours. He watches the Patty Winters show at work or does crosswords, reads the Zagat to stay up to date with the trendiest restaurants. His various beauty appointments happen when he is supposed to work, but nobody cares. Lunch break at one of the restaurants would take 90 minutes minimum I guess, then afterwards some conferences and his two hour workout. Dinin in another restaurant with the guys from work and doing drugs at a night club or going on a murder spree.Also, the narrator is incredibly unreliable, he probably only did half of what he claims in one day, rather in one week.
>>15997788>madrasThis isn’t sprezz general pablo
>>15999043you fell for baitanyways, day 10 of this thread and <200 replies. TIP dead as fuck
Where do I meet men who dress like this? I realized I’m rarely attracted to men but when I am it’s ones who dress like this. It’s just not common anymore and I doubt even then I’d attract one because I’m poor, but it’s worth looking for.
keiichi from higurashi took the prep pilllove to see it
>>15999219a dying style in most places, sadly. Everyone just wears athleisure
feelsgoodman, tip and sprezz are dead generals
>>16000431Unroll your trouser leg and take those god-damm pens out of your pocket. The bright blue in the shirt jars with the light green. Maybe white or navy Otherwise not too bad.
>>16002732nah form over function. I always cuff my chinos when it's muddy or rainy. And I grabbed pens on my way out the door to put in my car. The shirt is light blue university stripe and the chinos are khaki, the saturation is just probably fucked. Fussing over details is not /tip/
Where do you get socks? Looking to build a core set of socks that won't go to shit in a couple months.
>>15994559jacket looks like it's too big. also, why is he wearing a belt with a vest?
Any idea what brand this is? Hansen is the name of the guy
>>15990476the gth pants can.
Pleats or no pleats on chinos?
Any advice on what i should alter?
