Of course you would argue that, especially without seeing the results.

Thanks.
I might let the jacket be how it is supposed to be. It's not that I don't trust my tailor for ruining it or completely change the shape. The correction I'd like is very minimal so, whatever.

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?!?!?

Thanks, this one had to be made specifically too.

Not really - most people don't really notice these details in day to day life! Occasionally someone spots it, but not frequently. I mean, you didn't notice it at first, and you post on SF!

Your snark knows no bounds.

Clavicle surgery to meet SF-norms would be truly big time.

Your bravery against the elements is remarkable. Hope you had a fun visit!

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.

More f*cking rain so no shoe shots, sorry:

I agree ... purchases post SF have been limited to sleeve and waist suppression primarily ....

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.
