I can highly recommend the grenadine ties from Andrews ties. Hand rolled edges and good thickness of the lining. Unfortunately they run out of forest green and chocolate brown really fast, but they'll probably restock sooner or later. The price is great too (~$64): http://www.andrewsties.se/index.php?cPath=74_62_76
Hmm, the sleeve length looks just about perfect to me, but that's just how I prefer them. I'm no fan of 1 inch of shirt sleeve showing under the jacket sleeve. IMHO 1/4-1/2 inch hits the sweet spot. This looks like ~ 1/4, but the watch prevents one of the sleeves from showing.
Just to be clear. I didn't suggest Iso to cut his hair, just comb/style it differently to fit in with the general vibe of his CM outfits. It's NOT like talking about weight, age, religion et c. He can just comb it back if he's wearing something that fits better with the style. Not that different from telling somebody to loose a tie that's not jiving with the overall look IMHO. Anyway, I'm sure you didn't take my post about long hair style suggestions the wrong way Iso, I...
I think long hair can look really good with CM, but not when worn in a Bieber-ish manner. Incontro, Nick and Luigi do it quite well IMHO:
If you have lighter coloured trousers, grey odd jacket isn't that hard to do right. As we see from UC's, Greg's and Pingson's examples, it's possible doing it well even with quite dark trousers.Two of my own fits, wearing the same jacket. With light and darker trousers. I'm quite content with these, although the pants in the first pic could have been a tad less snug (I've given them away to a friend with even skinnier legs than I): [[SPOILER]] Yes, I actually check my...
What Murl said, except I don't care much for the trousers in picture 4.
Some recent stuff I've picked up. Unfortunately none of the items were on sale Not pictured: the perfect F/W suit. Will post more of that in the Pitti picture thread that will be up within 2 weeks. Edit. Forgot about these:
On the fit of the jacket: I'd suggest you ask the guys in the tailors thread. My (unqualified) guess is that the buttoning point is too high and thus lands on your rib cage, rather than just beneath it, which makes the jacket flare on top.
Happy New Year guys! I just wanted to say that I've thoroughly enjoyed following, and sometimes participating, in the discussions of this thread during 2014.
