It takes a staggering amount of manliness to post pictures featuring such a foo foo little dog.* Great look. I like the darker tie. Dog needs a pressing. *I have a great dane: do the math.

Thanks.

And, no, the buttons are in the same place, essentially. I asked him to fix a couple that were crooked...although one still is. I did not move them out any further though.

You chose wisely.

The best if he'd juggle the doggie.

You're right about the sleeves; need to handle that.

Thanks guys - thought the beige wouldn't be enough contrast. Maybe it'd all tie in if I got those sand suede longwings.

Much as I dig big dogs, nothing bigger than a wee pup could fit in an San Francisco 1 bedroom. Would get an Akita if I had the space.

Rumor is that it WAS a three BR, but then two were converted to closets... just sayin'...

Again, crappy image quality, blah blah. I need to get a good camera and figure out how to take timed photos. Anyone have an HTC Evo and use it to take pix? I am a novice at this.

Suit BB Navy Herringbone Fitzgerald
Shirt BB ESF Navy Striple
Tie-Thrift Store find (charcoal and purple)

BTW, any shoulder issues on this? Can't tell.

Hard to tell with the photo you took, but the shoulder fit looks good from my vantage point. I don't think that tie looks great with the suit (or really, at all, to be honest), though it could be the lighting. As it stands, it kind of disappears into the suit. More contrast would be better. Also, a pocket square could help liven things up a bit.

Thanks for the recommendations! I'll definitely give the app a try.

Scroll down for more pics...

Anyways, here goes: I put the jacket back on and run my hand up my arm to my shoulders. Trust me, there isn't even a centimeter of extra shoulder fabric protruding. I couldn't cut the shoulders even if I wanted to! My arms and shoulders are pressing against the material. The problem, however, might be in the shoulder pads; this is a pre-worn jacket (hence the fabulous deal), and the shoulder pads are somewhat broken and creased. I circled the creases and bumps. Might you guys have mistaken those creases for the perimeters of my frame? 'Cuz my shoulders continue on for a few inches after those creases... Here, have a look and tell me what you think.

Can't help you with the specific model, but one of the biggest keys to good photos with any camera (especially phone cameras and point-and-shoots) is light. You need bright, soft light--indoor lighting is rarely good enough, and direct sun will play havoc with brightness and colors. Ideally you need to be outside on a cloudy day or in the shade on a sunny day. In front of a large window that lets in a lot of light can also work.

Also, play with your camera and get to know how it handles different backgrounds. If I'm standing in front of a white wall, my phone camera overcompensates and takes a very dark, underexposed picture. If I'm standing in front of a very dark background, the opposite is true--the shots come out overexposed. So my background needs to be medium-colored or a mix of dark and light for the shots to turn out well.

If your HTC doesn't have a built-in timer feature, search the app store for a self-timer app. I'm sure there must be one for Android.
