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.

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.

No spring entry for me today as it's 29 degrees in NY It's also my first casual Friday in the past 15 years or so
post #36969 of 37070
My entry will hardly be "spring-y" today either, and because I had no access to SF (couldn't get access to the website this AM), I'll have to post after work. Did others have access problems to SF from yesterday evening onwards?

Yes, it happens here once in a rare while.

Yes, I can tell by those jeans.





The weather's been glorious recently. Bright sunshine, and almost 20C when in the sunlight, so...

SPRING CHALLENGE ENTRY (actually worn yesterday)





And what I'm actually wearing today:

Was wondering about the PS w/ jeans...looks good. The more I look at it, I think I only like the SC and the shoes. Don't worry about the weather. Spotted 2 big flocks of geese flying in this morning during dog walk. Warm temps around the corner.

Spoo, let me start by saying that your looks are almost always spot on, especially in terms of fit. Today is no exception, but you need better jeans!
