Sadly, I didn't have time to discuss it further, as I was en route to an appointment. Thoughts?
I think you did right just as you are... but you probably knew that already.

Very nice Greg - among all the great pics that show up on this thread you and Threadbarer and the late lamented TC Houston probably have the style closest to that which I would like to emulate. Slim cut classic. I am on the hunt for a summer weight POW, and while I am slowly coming around to the possibility of breaking my prejudice against tan shoes. Your combo with that rust coloured tie works very well.

Work outfit, thought I'd try a 3 button...







Have to have the coat altered a bit, taken in on the sides and hem the sleeves. Plus my shoes need to be shined. Other than that I think I look alright considering the whole outfit cost under 100 dollars. Any suggestions ar loved!

ps: Ignore the babyface, thanks!

Holdfast: Lovely suit. Tie choice would seem to depend on what you were trying to do today. Looks good as is; would look good with a more vibrant tie.

MOK: Likewise, lovely suit.

o/o: Beautiful tie.

Upr: New look suits you. Cheers.

A public service announcement for Nii: I'll be posting a fit later today with closed quarters. So, when you see my name, and the beginning of a picture, you should probably look away.

O/O - for the first time in recent memory, I'm not sure about the interplay between the tie and ps. Love the suit on you though.

Nii - Love that suit man. And have to admit to diggin your mix of soft-core car porn in your shoots....today's is just slummin'!

Butler - that's loungin' done right!

Gregaz - For some reason, the heavy tie doesn't seem to work with the fabric of the suit....however, I love the color interplay and the items seperately.

Navi - It could be the angle but ,that jacket looks too long on you and really shortens your legs (hell, it could also be...your legs). I think the 3-button makes the effect even more drastic.

Yeah the jacket is a little bit long, but its mmostly the angle making my legs look short. Jacket needs work but I enjoy this shirt and tie combo a lot.

I tried going without the collar stays today, and now that I see the picture, I conclude that was not the right call.

Who are these "cool kids on the other side of the playground." Don't tell me you've been posting in SW&D...if so, I will have to go over there and kick their *sses.


Yes - I'm enjoying SW&D - they're pretty open minded on style and give good honest feedback.

2" off the waist through so far, aiming for another inch. It's not been quite as tough as I feared, although the last inch is much tougher than the first one

The only problem is my suit trousers have largely gone from over-snug to over loose. Trying to decide whether to see if adding brace buttons would be an option or whether to get the waistband taken in.

Thanks - slipped down a bit (no gut to hold them in place, and I don't like belts under vests) - need braces or something...
