Since fat guys are the new black, I figured I'd strike while the iron is hot.
Jacket: Some Italian guy with a diluted brand
Shirt: Some Chinese guy
Tie: Handmade in Heaven by a dead Italian grandmother
Square: Some cheap Ikea-GAP hybrid in the HKG airport, was free with purchase of instant ramen
Sweater: Some cheap cashmere from some GAP rip-off brand in Euro Zone
Pants: Some discount store in NYC
Shoes: Ed Green's red headed step child
Bag: Some hillbilly from Seattle
Watch: Italian Navy issue
OH SHIT, BUSTED TAKING PHOTOS OF SELF IN GARAGE! HOW TO EXPLAIN?!?!?
Steed (E. DeBoise) bespoke odd jacket in navy Fox 14oz woolen flannel (for those of you who care, this is the model without the front cut/dart)
Paul Stuart faux tweed trousers, herringbone with windowpane overcheck
It could be the bright sunshine affecting the colours, but I'm not liking this combo. I like each item individually a lot, but not the combination of these two colours in that outfit.
The less tailoring required the better. I've had quite a few things fixed over the past couple years, but on new acquisitions i prefer to find jackets/shirts/pants, ect that require little to no tailoring.
I agree ... purchases post SF have been limited to sleeve and waist suppression primarily ....

Mine went from Savile Row military shoulders to softer natural shoulders. Completely different look.
IB - Trini is right ... i had a ton of shoulder padding in that second picture up there ... the grey flannel suit ... and it worked out fine going to minimal shoulder padding/natural shoulders. i do not think it affected the overall shape of the suit.
I still have one more Aquascutum jacket i hope to have done. I'll do before and after shots on that one and post later. My tailor is killing me softly... lol.

we fat guys need to come together ... and organize a march. to stop the fashion houses from continually using these skinny a.s.s models who look good even in garbage bags ... lol.
i like the fit btw ... nice jacket ... the green is a great touch ... and it plays off the pocket square very well.
