The 2nd Annual Los Angeles Tweed Pub Crawl Nov 10

There comes a time in life when friends, a cocktail and tweed are the only things between you and a night of being cold and alone.

The Second Annual Los Angeles Tweed Pub Crawl

Thursday November 10, 2011
Starting at 8:00pm

Wear your tweed. Whether it be a suit, a sport jacket, a cap, a scarf a skirt or a tie, put it on and let’s go out!

We’ll meet at the bar at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles and stroll to downtown’s finest purveyors of cocktails and ales. From 8pm ‘til we’re through.

Hope to see you there.

The suit shouldn't make your legs look shorter than they are.

With the low waist on the trousers and the bunching at the ankles, it just makes his legs look shorter than they are. 

There are other issues like the skinny tie and wide lapel imbalance, or the long bunching sleeves, but the critically awkward elements that stand out the most are the pants and the vest. They destroy any anatomical harmony that the eye can enjoy. 

He's a slim man; the long vest trying to go over the low wasted trousers gives it a saggy belly look. If he's going to wear a vest, he needs higher wasted trousers. The vest would have to be shorter giving focus to his trim waist.... Also, he should get those trousers hemmed, he's gonna get his heel caught in the leg and trip.

Good thing is he's wearing a suit. I've had worse fitting things, but I try not to wear them to red carpet functions.
