There seems to be a lot of complaints about using spalla camcia on business suits. With the overall rather appalling state of business dress, what issue is it really? I mean, it cannot be that bad to sport bespoke suits with spalla camcia (granted that most of them are well fitting) rather than what-have-you ill-fitting rtw shoulders. To me, fit should be above all else as the majority rather wear horrible cuts due to it's label with little or no attention to true fit.
The shirt's body and sleeves should be taken in. Obviously the trousers needs to be shorten as you've already acknowledged, but also needs the back rise fixed such that the "bags" behind your thighs disappear. I do not like the dimples in the jacket's shoulder-sleeve area, so I would have that taken care of as well. The buttoning point seems rather spot on though, as well as the general cut; it does give off a good conservative vibe.

Quote: Originally Posted by voxsartoria I should never have entered the Kent Wang Seersucker Contest. My regret is not so deep, nor the consequences so cataclysmic, for my folly to merit it's own thread. So, I post it here. I look back ruefully at my missteps, the poor strategy, the sheer hubris. And I must admit that edmorel was right: I shoulda worn Allen-Edmonds seconds with my Steven Aver. On the positive side, I now finally have several...
Quote: Originally Posted by Working Stiff I want to make steak tartar. Is there anything I particularly need to know? I plan to buy a piece of sirloin and chop it by hand (people seem to say that this is better than grinding, and I don't have a meat grinder). Will serve with french fries, no vegetables (green salad after). I have this recipe from Madame de St. Ange that I copied out a while back - I'm not sure whether it was she or I who omitted...
Obviously, Prince Don Fabrizio Salina gets my vote.

So the leather is processed and used flesh-side out. It's an attractive look...at least initially...albeit perhaps not really suitable for dressy occasions. But the real problem stems from the fact that the...
