Is it possible to wear something like this without looking autistic/larpy?Maybe with chinos, collared shirt and a blue quarter zip?
no.>Maybe with chinos, collared shirt and a blue quarter zip?absolutely not.
>>17896571No, sadly. And it's too weird to be laughed off as being eccentric.
Halloweens been over
>>17896571The only way this style of coat could possibly be worn in public normally is if it didn't have all the filigree and was in a darker color. Black, midnight, navy or grey.As in the pic?No.
>>17897385Correct. There will be a version of this back sooner than we think
>>17896571Yeah on the fourth of July or your country's equivalent you could. Otherwise no.
>>17896571if the jacket had less decorations it might be possible although that might end up looking Asian dictator
>>17896571distress it and lie about it being your ancestor's heirloom fuck
>>17896571OP here, just wanted to emphasise, something LIKE this.I know people aren't ready for the actual thing, but just a bit more than the bland wool overcoats people have been wearing for too long. They're boring.
>>17897572These square shaped overcoats are so stale, they need binning off.I think the lower cut away shape with some nice buttons is probably the most reasonable improvement without entering autism territory
>>17897573and no lapel. Lapels are so tired.
>>17896646>Hat>silly necktie>cape>boots>wig>walking cane>strange trousersnot exactly a like for like comparison to what i'm suggesting is it
No. Everyone will think you are a vampire.
>>17897576you asked a two part question and got a two part answer.question 1: can i wear this without it looking like a costume?answer 1: no. photograph for example.question 2: could i mix this period jacket with chinos etc?answer 2: absolutely not.i shouldn't have to explain to you why mixing different eras of clothing is bad, but if you need a quick example just look at anyone who wears a waistcoat with modern low cut trousers.
>>17896571you will look ridiculous and maybe people will think you're weird but if you hard commit to it then people will probably find it charming if they already like you to some degree. i do think it's better to at least wear something a little out there alongside it though; can't see it working with the normie ocbd chinos loafers shit. i wear a lot of wild shit places and usually get compliments on it, even though some people surely look on and think it looks ridiculous.
>>17896571You have autism. Sorry I had to be teh one to tell you.
>>17896571OP bought a Halloween costume and is trying to recoup his losses lmao.
>>17897573I started wearing a parka over my suit
>>17898456you need other shit like a Jaguar from at least 25 years ago or a Range Rover of similar age, I don't think you can pull this off if you're just a regular slob who lives in the city or ugly suburb on very little land
>>17896571I stopped paying attention to Fashion Week about 5 years ago, but the last reference I remember to anything like this was some old Hedi Saint Laurent stuff. Even then, it seemed a bit lappy to me. May find something useful looking through Saint Laurent's SS15, FW16, SS16 shows.
>>17897577That’s a good thing tho
>>17896571yeah you can. wear it as an overcoat and theme the rest of your accessories colonial. think chico balmain fw2016
>>17898884this is the fit im talking about
>>17896571Only context I can think of where this would be okay would be if you're in a band and that's your band's aesthetic or something.
>>17896571You surely can't wear a whole fit like that. If you take the jacket for example and combine it with more temporary fashion it might sorta work but many people would still think your fit is weird
>>17899247Also, it could work if you're member of a Clockwork Orange gang.
>>17896646But this shit goes hard as FUCK
