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...

Many thanks, fellows. I can't lie, however - semi retirement does agree with me. From shouting at the kids to get off my lawn, to the wife making me sleep in the outhouse, it's definitely the life I wanted

You certainly look strikingly different! I think it's a positive change overall, but never really minded the old look.

That jacket really does seem tight across the chest; not only are the lapels bowing out, but that's also causing the jacket below the button to pivot inwards by way of compensation for the forced movement above, causing the fronts to overlap. At least, that's the visual impression being created.



Great to have you back.



A beautiful - if still cold - sunny Monday. Cold enough to justify buttoning up a 3pc before going out for those who are displeased by the configuration below.

[/SPOILER]On a visit to the dry-cleaners to drop off a couple of suits, I was advised by a likeable (and clearly knowledgeable from the brief conversation we had) fellow who was dropping off what seemed to be Liberty tie, that I should have brightened up the look with a stronger choice of tie. Sadly, I didn't have time to discuss it further, as I was en route to an appointment. Thoughts?
Bolder tie for me. Nice suit (although my preference is unbuttoned 3pcs)

Apologies for the weird camera noise going on in the second picture, my camera is crap, but I included the picture anyway to get a better view of the hat.

Spots don't work against the gingham.

Not a fan of the loafers or lapel decoration, but the rest is good.

The grey, but preferably red or navy

Relaxed lounging:

Cordings RTW cords
T & A Gingham bespoke shirt
I like the colour of those cords - would look great with a navy jacket.

Jacket's not at all flattering. Too long?
