[quote=flix;4208852]But could you or someone else please tell my, why the tie (has to?) do such a wave on your chest? Not only when sitting down, but also when standing?

This.

Spoo - fantastic.

PhatGuido - the first pic (lighting) doesn't do the fit justice...if #2 is closer to the true colors - love it.

A few people critiqued that tie, but I thought his tie was an excellent choice for the suit; the problem was that the shirt was - as you say - too close in scale to it. A microcheck shirt (with the same tie) would have worked better IMO and preferable to a different tie.

I really must see if I can dig up an old photo...

I think that's fair comment (emphasis mine). Still some little niggles, but a generally happy medium.

Another gloriously sunny but cold day:


For anyone who read the discussion a couple of pages or so back about actual jacket length vs the degree of closed front influencing the appearance of length, this is one of the the RLPLs I mentioned that is actually exactly the same length as the brown plaid Polo that was appreciated at the weekend, and yet seems a bit longer. Looking at it more, this also has an unnecessarily/unflatteringly wide jacket skirt below the level of the button (perhaps caused by a long front?) which also adds bulk, which again is what makes it seem longer.

Interesting. I don't mind closed quarters, but perhaps in this case it might work against you, visually. If you're not against more open quarters, would you consider them for your next MTM?

I don't think those argyles would count as 'fun' socks to even the most conservative member

Thanks - it's not a bad fit, if not perfect - I decided it was good enough for RTW particularly at the silly price I paid for it in TKMaxx. The fabric is really nice, and I lacked a DB for occasional wear.

Looking good PG - nice simple clean lines and contrasts. Great tie.

For your entertainment (or dissection - not that around here those two activities are mutually exclusive) . . .

Fit looks much better. If I'm being picky, shirt sleeves could be a tad longer but all in all it's pretty decent.

Nice. You disprove the ridiculous notion that odd navy pants can't be stylish.

In combination with the pants it does look a little bulky - but I think it's the trousers that are the bigger visual influence.

It seems that the suits in my closet mark where my figure has been - this one was a more recent purchase, and I haven't morphed into another shape very much since. I am put in mind of the cartoonist Nicole Hollander, whose character Sylvia states - "I'm always the perfect weight for my height, which varies."

As for your jacket today, I agree that the jacket skirt looks both unnecessarily and unflatteringly wide, making you look wider than in actuality that you are.

Ironically enough, the shirt, from Lewin, is a 16/35, whereas my normal shirt size from US sources is 16/34. I've always just bought the 16/35's from Lewin, and let shrinkage take of things - apparently this shirt (from the photo, at least) has shrunk more than I had thought, though I suspect it may simply be a trick of the camera.
