Then you need to work on taking better photos, and I certainly don't mean that as any insult to you. My dislike of photographical tomfoolery for WAYWRN is not a secret here, but I firmly believe that bad photography shouldn't get in the way of a good outfit. It's not hard to get good photos. You just need a location with enough of the right kind of light and a place to prop your camera. I've found three or four spots at work and a couple at home that I use depending on time of day and whether there are others around.

Nice simple look today. This made me laugh.

That tie makes me rethink my aversion to paisley.

- maybe not the original but definitely early on the curve & a victim of the resulting Tsunami

- I hear you, but it's just how I have rolled for the last few years now. Less is more rather than "pattern car wrecks" to detract from actual fit & balance.

What really draws my eyes is the quarters, which are very closed, except that open gap below the button. It looks like the jacket that Threadbearer had made that went so wrong.

The shoulders are ok, chest fits. But the lapels are very small and the buttoning point is pretty high

The waist is not fitting properly and it is pulling in back there, which is creating folds below the armpits.

The pants seem to have a low rise, and they are not working with your body type.

It just looks strange, it looks big and then at the same time, small. There is no real waist suppression, but the back is tight around the waist. It is also short, which throws off the balance.

It is just not flattering, man. I think you can do much better.

Mike
I appreciate the lesson today Mike. Cheers my man.

I hate finding an inch of snow on the ground, but glad it lets me get some more flannel mileage.

Spoo kills it.... Again! And with a cuff at that

A lot less break on the trousers, too, to show off those shoes. Dunhill cashmere sportcoat Kent Wang herringbone pink shirt Kent Wang white linen pocket square Kent Wang enamel guilloche cuff links (coming soon) Thick As Thieves trousers First time wearing a lapel flower (it's a real one). Does it look alright? I've recently been buying flowers for the house regularly, so now I have a regular supply of lapel flowers.

^Kent - I like the flower, but coat needs a little less waist suppression IMO.

Since you asked. Didn't post it because I thought the two pics conveyed the idea.

I agree on the comment about shortening the trousers slightly. Did you have a blog about your apprenticeship there? I think I remember reading it. Did you keep up the hobby?

What I had before getting tempted during my fitting


Picked up new SC (2nd version of my 1B SB P Johnson in navy Loro Piana "The Wave" cloth & tie (black/navy 2 tone silk knit from Drakes

^^^ That 1B jacket is sweet...ohhh the pick stitching.... And both ties are lovely. Socks look great but I think a different pair of shoes would have really upped the ante.
