Please excuse the trousers they have yet to be altered in length. I'll only be posting occasionally since I don't wear a suit everyday...

You might try buttoning both buttons, or just the lower one. The Duke of Windsor and President kennedy both had their suits made in a two button style similar to this. Kennedy buttoned both, and the Duke just fastened the lower one. Google photos of both of them and you'll see what I mean.

Been doing CF for 3 months now. It's been great for me so far. But I'm only too aware how cult-like it is, and that's cause for some concern. I'd like to hear some persuasive arguments about about what is wrong with it. I've heard none on this forum.
Tie might be a bit long, but the outfit is so good that it comes off as as one of those slight idiosyncrasies that keep the look from being too studied and perfect. I wouldn't change it.

And the piece you found and are modeling is delightful. Nicely done. But that would very much miss the vintage...
I'm also a big fan of these: They're made of titanium, have great polarized lenses, and are absolutely bulletproof. Possibly in the style you're looking for. http://www.scheyden.com/ C
Persol is good, so is Oliver Goldsmith.
