Keep the photos coming!

Well stated, HF

Agreed, thank you. Going to push a more monochromic look over the next bit of experimentation.

It's purely a matter of preference, but I'm not a huge fan of the amount of fullness around the thighs one sees with that cut. Will's trousers also seem to be similar in that respect. Also--again a matter of pure preference--I would go with a slightly lower gorge if I were your height.

Very nice, Manton. The jacket look better than the actual A&S cut to me. Is that Lovat?

Love that jumper; the combination of the hefty knit and the leather elbow patches is quite fun.

This is a very simple test. I put this up today for opinions. I am also going to post a poll and let people vote on this suit.

Poll: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=212720

I have always liked this suit. However, it has inspired from the most ugly venom, to praise. I even sold it once, to have it return to me.....so maybe it is fate.

So, what is your honest opinion? Is this a baller suit, or should I ball it up and light it on fire?

Please, give me honest feedback!

Oh, since I know it will land over where I am quite popular, and can't defend myself, I added a caption.

Mike

Yes. No. Single somehow strikes me as gimmicky. I have considered trying flat but Salvatore talked me out of it. Mina also said it would not good on me.

It's actually a very bright limey green IRL. Somewhat loud.

Interesting. My view is that two doesn't look gimmicky just because it's classic, but conceptually single pleats do seem more minimalist but not gimmicky, because the pleat serves the purpose of 'starting' the crease, no?

Regarding forward vs reverse pleats, I think the former only look good on high-waisted trousers. Reverse pleats may help giving a bit of width to figures that may otherwise look somewhat lanky. Surely you've had reverse-pleated trousers -- what made you settle for forward pleats, if I may ask?
post #27297 of 37077
I just never liked the way reversed looks.

This is my first suit, a navy solid BB Fitzgerald. How's the fit? I wish the alterations lady took it in more. What do you think? This is my first suit, a navy solid BB Fitzgerald. How's the fit?

Oh, their commentary has led to a few purges already. I don't mind the criticism as much as I do the manner in which it is dispensed...by people who have never posted a fit.
