Hello Garry. Long time no see you in person. Posh Penguins Club? Good name or should I keep thinking. Checked out midnight blue at The Wreath's favourite bespoke tailor today. Looked just like black.Asked Tom to get out the ivory for summer dinner jackets and....It's bloody sold out!! Who would have thought?Got my new look organised, starting with a navy sport coat and grey pants, all tropical worsted. Will post pics when it gets sorted.Sorry, my cynicism got the better...
Ha Ha Ha ha! Sorry, can't stop laughing.
Sansimeon...Very Nice. Brown (square and shoes) and pink is a great but underrated combination.
ljhrox - Because you are very lean I would add a forward pleat to the pants to add some breadth...and drop them down a bit. Keep the same leg opening but have a slightly lower rise next time.
I wouldn't have thought of brown with that Black Watch but the whole outfit looks fabulous, as does the Nordic scenery ( although I love the bleakness and austerity of Scandinavian TV shows...must be my dark Celtic blood).Grey flannel pants, or even navy would also look excellent of course. Black Watch sport coat is actually quite versatile...with tie, open neck shirt, roll neck sweater, brown, grey, navy pants etc...

I thought slimmer lapels, two buttons and pants with a higher rise might give me the illusion of more height.I would love to return to UK and thanks for the offer, but my wife and I are recovering from travel splurges to 12 countries in the past few years, including a solo trip by...
[/quote] I think this suit is giving you too oval a shape. IMO you need more shoulder structure to compensate for the slope, a bit more waist suppression and slightly longer pants.
And don't buy any. Buy chalk stripe, much more elegant.
That 's truly funny!
CLEAV...Just mulling over that last shot at the beach. I think your suit has hit the sweet spot for lapels, a width that will never ever be seen as "out". Tell me, are this and your other suits two buttons (sometimes it's a bit hard to tell) and are they off the rack? If so, what brand? I have suddenly moved towards a narrower lapel like yours and two buttons instead of a three roll two. This always happens when I watch too many Sean Connery James Bond movies, which is...
