Manton, that is a beautifull suit, I those lapels! EdMorel....Damn, that is one fine looking sportscoat, what fabric is that? Spoo, great job today, you really captured the essence of your inspiration shot. ThreadBearer, lovely subtle details to capture your inner pea-cock. Holdfast, loved your source photo and think you've managed to capture some of the lovely colours and textures in your fit, especially liked the shoes and their patina! also @ Spoo, yesterdays 'woe' suit looks like its great, the only real issue I have with it are the patch pockets, they look off to me, too low I think? Everyone else entering the Challenge today...well done, some real inspiration from you guys! -TTO Also...Congrats big A, how could I forget that!
Since it is nostalgia week on Style Forum. Clothing from the paleolithic era.
Love the lapels and the overall tall and skinny look. I always enjoy the way your clothes work with your body instead of trying to present some replacement image.

I'm no Flusser, but I don't think oversized clothing flatters any body type. I have a chest-to-waist drop, so I like to accentuate it with my slim shirts and sweaters; it looks good on me. I'm not sure what you mean by big, but if you have a bit of a belly, you should still wear relatively tight sweaters. I'd search for as tight as possible without the sweater exposing love handles and man-boobs. Basically, clothing has to follow your body curves, but at the same time smooth out any imperfections by not being skin-tight.
Point taken. It makes sense, about your clothes accentuate your body. For the record, I'm 6'3" and 260lbs, athletically built (although I am developing somewhat of a beer belly). I say athletic because my entire life my shoulders have been fairly broad and my mid section not so much. However, I have long arms (usually take a 37/38 sleeve) so in order to get shirts/sweaters to fit I usually have to go with a XXL for sleeve length however that throws the mid all out of whack.
I've recently dialed things back, sweaters at least, to XL and though they fit my mid sections fairly well I'm almost always tugging at my sleeves to pull them down t my wrists. I think your sweater fits you well. Maybe this is a unique problem that I have.

^I was saying the same thing. I remember this jacket and tie from earlier and I liked it then but I'm with it now.

Yes! And I dig the shirt with this get up. However, there's something going on with the shoulders of the jacket. Can't quite put my finger on it though.
