Cheers Parker! I totally agree...I've been on the hunt and lookout for some nice black lace-ups that are in my price range.

My condolences. 95 is a great innings, but still, it is never easy. You and your father both look smashing, and respectful of the occasion.

If wearing the carnation inspires you to start wearing carnations on more pleasant occasions as well, a florist can make one up for you in minutes that will sit flatter against your lapel (they cut off the stem, and then use tape and wire to create a new stem, so you lose that "fat" bit just beneath the calyx). You could do it yourself easily if you had the materials, too, though I've never tried.

It looks nice, but I'd prefer a shade darker trousers with that jacket. More a "light mid-grey", if that makes sense, like the grey bit of the tie.

Your jacket looks 1 size too big for you.

At least! That jacket is gaping a good inch or two at the neck.
post #30833 of 37077
Thanks. Yes, the jacket was 1 size too big for me. It did fit a while ago. But the one I'm wearing on he pictures just got altered by my tailor. So it should fit now.

Pretty much this... just something to do... in this one case, there's a bit of history: the coat was to be made with TWO buttons on each sleeve and came with four. I had a choice to have them replace the sleeves or they offered a nice discount. So I saved $ and can still have two-button sleeves

Wow, upr, I had no idea you're so well travelled. Here you are again (to Stalin's left, natch) -- looking dashing as usual -- at Stalin's 70th birthday party. (Bet that was a lot of fun! Did you play Scrabble?)

So you posted these pics before you got it altered? How about some after pics.

Indeed. (Glad you took it with humor.)

The jacket's length OTOH could be too short, but a full body shot would help to figure that out. Some might say that the buttoning point is too high, but I'm inconclusive here.

Your shirt's collar isn't wide enough, its ends don't hide under the lapels or are in danger not to hide when you move a bit. And it could be higher since your neck is long.

Trouser length could be too short (for Germany). But it depends on your size, the taller the more "full break" (bottom right), otherwise "regular break" (bottom left):



Not sure about your shoes, they look cheap to me.

No those pics were taken after the jacket was altered.

Jacket: Yeah, I think the sleeves are a bit too long, too. But my tailor told me it is just right. The length of the jacket hast been changed by my tailor, too. Before altering it has been an inch longer.
I just didn't know and asked my tailor - that's what happened...

Shirt / Collar: It is a normal size 41 (16?) business shirt by "Eterna" with the "Kent" collar. Maybe I should choose other shirts / collars. I have one shirt with a shark collar. Could that be right? How do I get the collar higher?

Trousers: They are more "regular break". I am 187cm tall (6'1"?). They got shortened a bit, too.

Shoes: They are "Lloyd" shoes - normal black leather. They are not that expensive, but I don't think they're cheap.


I bought that suit when I was a lot bigger. Maybe after altering it, the fit isn't right anymore... =/
I bought it with size 106 (42L?) and now I need 102.

Thanks for your answers @ all! It helps a lot.

I think it's still too big unfortunately.

Not sure what's beneath that anonymity swirl, but if you have a long, narrow face a collar with more of a spread would look really great. As far as how high the collar is, this is not really fixable in an off the rack shirt. Everything there depends on the manufacturer's preference. A few years ago it was the fashion for collars to have two buttons at the neck, thus giving it a higher stance. I still seek these out for OTR shirts since I also have a very long neck.

If you stick with this whole "dressing up" thing, I strongly advise getting some shirts made. They're not necessarily more expensive than better off the rack brands (think Zegna, Canali, and -- dare I speak its name -- Charvet) and you can get them any ol' way you want. Plus you'll feel like a king the first time you put one on.
