I appreciate it.

It's packed up and ready to be brought back. I really wasn't too sure about it to begin with, but I wanted a second opinion, and really didn't know what could and could not be corrected.

Hopefully the next suit won't be such a glaring mistake.

Thinking that this suit does not go with this shirt. The patch pockets and 3 roll 2 of the jacket want to go with a more casual shirt. Or the formality of the white spread collar wants a more structured suit. Somehow, this just doesn't quite jive. But I like the parts.

Edgar Allan Pwn- it looks like you photoshopped your lower back off along with your face.

Props for asking for advice, getting some tough love, and handling it with grace. That you posted it here asking for a critique says more about your sense of fits than not being able to pinpoint exactly what was wrong with it. Clearly you knew something was off, and that's half the battle.

FWIW, I have a very difficult time evaluating suit fit when trying stuff on, and it is very easy to make big/expensive mistakes.

Glad to have you on, sir.

I've been seeing these crazy double-dimples very frequently lately! I'm more of a single dimple man myself...

Add me to the minority, this is what I do, and in fact what most instructions I've seen for a double FIH suggest you do.

It's the kind of stuff I wear to work these days so I guess it's MC-safe:

Most important tip: wear shoes in pics. Always.

I recommend that you post your pictures in this thread and ask to have them "Foofed: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=115692

You can learn incredibly valuable things from the comparisons.

I wear cool full long stocky and its highly available in seasonal fashion now a days...
But I don't like your dress... It seems to be old fashion and show your bad choice....
