Hehe. I think it was time to get back to reality... I agree with the lack of oomph. Thanks, nii.

Yes, that's exactly what I see too. And yes it's nitpicking, but where would we be on SF without that.

Well, next time I wear it, I will wear that combination and we can see. I have been wearing black shoes quite often lately, and I am getting weary of them. I wanted that pop of color...I was trying to look Italian today.

Further, nitpickery is what makes this place what it is! I am much happier when the fit passes muster, and the critique focuses on the accessories, as those are easier to change.

And, I am digging the fact that Nii likes this, and you'all are nitpicking.

Is it a blue suit, Spoo?? I can't tell. Looks like it though. I like it.

Quite true - but that's what one should expect from me when left to my own devices .

Meanwhile, I can't see most of the submissions so far (nor my own posting), so if I'm not commenting yet on someone, it's not personal, it's a technical limitation (due to my employer's block of most photo-posting images).

First post. Sorry about crappy pics, had to use the camera phone.

Just a quick question but I´m noticing it more often. Is wearing a coloured cuffling in the lapel button hole a sort of new trend? I´ve seen numerous pics and people wearing it so in the past weeks.

Sounds a little like someone I know who is very much into lapel decorations

Damn, dude. You have to be the skinniest cat on this board!!!

I like the combo. It seems to me that this suit has too much shoulder for you. It might be the angles, but it seems less sleek than most of your recent fits...looks a little big in the jacket.

You're right but I think it balances out. Sort of like a case where a little extra shoulder doesn't hurt to make the proportions better. Then again I'm loving most of the new PandArts and probably am not thinking right. Also I think I'm getting too conservative in my MC thinking but I wish his shoes were darker

LOL! I know, my GF says I need to eat more.

Cheers Mike!

I think it has a bit to do with the angles the suit is a 36R King's Fit by Ben Sherman. The shoulder/arm seems sit just inside the end of my shoulder, however the waist isn't as surpressed as my slim fit H&Ms and being a wool/linen blend as opposed to a poly blen it hangs a bit more naturally. I'm toying with the idea of having it taken in a bit which should help sleeken the silhouette.

I don't think you should take in the waist at all. Would look too exaggerated.

Would raising the arm holes help? Or is that major surgery?
