Gerry Allowing for issues related to camera angle and perspective, this suit raises issues that I have pondered for myself. At the moment I prefer a tapered leg on my pants. I think it looks neater with cuffs and seems to fit the sartorial zeitgeist. On the other hand, it can tend to make a suit look unbalanced if one is top heavy in the sense of having relatively large shoulders and chest. The other thing with an aggressive taper is that if the leg is even slightly...
Only the impotent are pure.
I treat everything I buy from OS on the internet as a final sale unless the product doesn't meet the description. In most cases it's just too difficult to return things from Australia anyway. And at the risk of appearing like an apologist, I took careful note of the measurements posted on the HY site before I first ordered, they are accurate, the turnaround time has been good, and everything I have bought from them is high quality and meets description. Just my experience.
That's about 9 oz. That will wrinkle like granny's poon at the crotch and the back of the knees. Live with it or leave it. I usually think of Irish linen (for suits rather than shirts) as significantly heavier.

This is good advice. You could do much worse than to follow what the Yanks do with white bucks. Ribbon belts. Casual brown or navy OK. White never.
This is a perfect example of how to wear a sports coat and jeans.
Not married to leather soles. Just the first pair I got years ago when I thought leather was the dressiest option. Still do really. Also have a dynamic flex and a comfort composite.
Hadn't thought about the elastic. Do they refuse to do factory refurbish if you've done the topy thing?
I have the suede string loafers. They feel slightly wooden on the feet/sole compared to more expensive shoes. That said, they are probably the shoe I have worn most frequently with casual stuff since I purchased them - which wouldn't be the case if they were uncomfortable. They have softened slightly and worn well (apart from the sting bow coming undone on one. They also haven't become sloppy in fit as some loafers tend to do. My experience only, of course.
