IMHO using qualifiers is redundant here as we're mostly assessing color schemes, fits, and combinations: these are not facts, so it will always be "IMO."

Fair enough. Nevertheless, the tone was more obtuse than regular. And then the follow up posts instructing me to bow my head, say thanks and snip up my jacket made me mad.

The best way to prove him wrong would be to try and capture some better pictures.

It's so weird that the jacket seems too large. When I first got it, it was a full size too small (it was a real steal on SF). I took it to my tailor and asked him if he could lengthen the sleeves (by 3.5"!!) and take out the waist and chest. There was nothing I could to about the length, so I had to come to terms with the fact that the bottom of the jacket will align with my wrists instead of my thumb-knuckles. When I picked the jacket up, I thought my tailor was a miracle worker.... And now this.

More pics are sure to come, as I traveled to FL yesterday, and, considering the jacket's awesome versatility, lightness and newness, and my resolve to start traveling light, it's the only sportcoat I brought along. So you might be seeing lots of it in the coming days. If, in fact, y'all think it needs some more work, really, put it out there: I want this baby to look perfect and I'm ready to listen.

If it's really a three roll two then you should do as Mike suggests and unbutton the top button. It's hard to tell but it may be a hard three in which case leave it. I don't know why there is so much derision for the hard three on SF. Maybe its the American bias here but a hard three with the top two buttons fastened can be a great look and might be a more English tradition.

Great start to the week, gents...

Great combo, Spoo. Who makes the tie?

Love these closeups, BTW.

Now you've got me going to your blog to check the total! $83?! Unbelievable.


Fabulous suit, Mike. Truly.

Mike

I think it's the posture and camera angle (low, pointed up). But, I could be wrong. This is certainly one of my better fitting SCs.

Try the Camera Genius app for iPhone. Has a timer, a big button, and some pretty nifty built-in editing functionality. Also, Google's Picasa has some pretty cool editing tools as well. Plus, you can upload directly to Picasa from Genius.

Thanks to both of you. I'll make those pants shorter and that shirt tailored asap. About the shoes... that will have to wait. Those are my better shoes and they took all my shoes money for now. But I'll start looking (something brown, right?)

From the current pics (the first in particular) the shoulders look too wide - and believe me, I do appreciate the extended shoulder look, but it seems a bit much. Thus the comments. Of course, when your arms are straight down, it may look completely different, so...yes, I'd like to see more pics.

Although you must admit, a hard 3 sportcoat rarely looks good.

Thanks. My fits cost me relatively little money, but the investment of time and energy spent thrifting probably comes close to balancing it out. Luckily, I enjoy it!

Thanks for the suggestion. I think you're right. This suit was a thrift store find that was "close enough" right off the rack, so I haven't bothered with adjusting it. The sleeves could probably use a bit of shortening, too--I'm wearing it today with my longest-sleeved and biggest-cuffed FC shirt, just to balance things out, but with most of my other shirts no cuff shows.

the problem with the SC fit here is that the jacket is a bit short and there's waist suppression, so basically your 'skirt' is flairing out. I've got the same problem and I can almost feel what it's like to wear that SC. It sort of just hangs off and out from the body and swings around... needs more length, or less suppression (or lower down). Are the vents popping open too?

Moo, I'll admit I often just don't get your look. It's not that I don't like your looks, I just don't get the style at all, but this one? this one is good... whatever you were thinking here, keep thinking it. PS - your wife looks beautiful, a little blurry in the face, but beautiful.

[SPOILER]

niiiccceeee textures there. Excellent start. Now clean up those ratty t-shirts and keep posting. Welcome!

- did you move the buttons back? the choice of pocket square is top notch (really nicely done). this SP is really great, IMO.

Apologies in advance for the dog pics (that's what happens when your wife is behind the camera). Also, full disclosure: pics were taken yesterday.

I was himming & hawing over the tie choice. Finally opted for the darker brown, but the other choice was a beige. Thoughts?
