Interestingly we both agreed on PG and o/o having great sense of color and pattern. I was typing my response same time as you were and we agreed on that. So i think there is some truth to the matter.

I wish both will comment more. Obviously its a personal choice based on their schedules, reasons for posting etc, but this thread stands to gain so much from their commentary, cos i agree, they are in a league of their own when it comes to color and pattern matching.

Heck - i would even muddy the waters more. Will i take fit advice from o/o - absolutely not, because he has his personal sense of fit that i don't believe in. Will i take fit advice from you or MaoMao (and some others) - absolutely yes, because based on evidence, i believe you have a sense of fit more in line with my expectations of what "right fit" is.

Bottom line - constructive feedback coming from folks with a proven track record works. If it doesnt work, you just break bait and allow the individual to wallow in their misery.

That's why I begun to follow SF: the outfits are great and the debates, even better! I'm learning a lot from you, gents.

Thanks. Yeah, large chest, shoulders and back, small waist, hypertrophied glutes and broad quads, which makes finding well fitting OTR trousers an almost unbearable chore. The thing is, as I replied to a similar post from Nii, that IRL the extreme waist suppression on the jackets is not as apparent as on the pics. I own several jackets which have less waist suppression but I find they make me look too squarish and shorter than I am. (I'm in Foo's territory being 5'3")

Spoozy Have you taken a look at this blog? http://venividivrai.blogspot.com/ There's a lot on it I don't like, but a fair bit I do. I get the feeling you might enjoy going through a few dozen pages. Give it a go - see if you get anything from it.

And which would be the correct term. Gluteus hypertrophy?

It is heartening to be reminded of the STFU*. It was knowledge of their ground breaking work and egalitarian principles that, in part, inspired me to attend law school with the specific aim of becoming a legal aid lawyer in my native South and there to represent tenant and migrant farm workers. Though it has been more than 30 years since I left that work, I still look on it as rewarding beyond measure. When seeking out and meeting with clients, I often dressed in this mode:

Yup, similar to how counsel dresses when meeting with [illegal] immigrants. Don't wanna scare them off with a tight suit and pocket square. Very well done!

IMO, these are fits that i think exemplifies both Spoozy's preferences, yet still aesthetically pleasing if you will ... I hope forumers captured in here don't mind ...

thoughts?






















although this is nice and i would wear it, this is not what Spoozy wants to become... lol:
