These two points are very well made - people need to realize not everyone is dressing nice for the same end goal/reason.

Well, the sleeve length wouldn't bother me that much. At least jacket and shirt sleeve length are in sync :) A tad too short, but better than the usual way-too-long-length. The jacket length, however, is way too short and the button stance is dreadful, as mentioned already.

Size - Yes, I am fat. You can all worship skinny men in skinny suits until the cows come home, but it won't make me any skinnier. I am a little above 100kgs, a little under 6 foot tall, about a 46 chest and 38 waist. If I could be rail thin and wear clothes in a more flattering way, I would, but there is little that flatters me. I photograph badly, I make good clothes look bad while my slim colleagues can make bad clothes look good.
Alan is skinny. Jake is skinny. Mark is skinny. I am fat. Get the fuck over it.

Signet Ring - I had this made when my grandfather passed some 6 years ago. It is his family crest, with their family motto inside. For the Australians on here, I grew up in Cabramatta, so I lay no claim to being aristrocratic, but I love my family and am not ashamed of my name. My wife wears a Kamon on her formal kimono, I have a ring. Only on SF can we get berated for something so intimate and personal as that.

Tweed - I love tweed. I love rich, sturdy cloth, and I am not a banker. I am not a lawyer. I do not have board meetings. I do not sit behind a desk anywhere, I do not meet with stiff lipped upper crust people and try to be unassuming. I have no dress requirement other than to enjoy my clothes and try to help my customers. I enjoy wearing tweed, flannel and cord, particularly in the cold.

Beard - My wife likes my beard. She means more to me than any of you.

Tan - I have the best tan my Irish blood allows.

Posh Biker - I am neither posh nor a biker.

Fuddy Duddy - I am a bit fuddy duddy. Anyone who wants to call me out on it in person is more than welcome.

Again, I don't post often. Maybe if I lose 20 kilos, cure my baldness, get a fake tan and dress for your job and not mine, I will be accepted on here. Until then, I'll leave this forum to my betters.

Should I ever make it to your neck of the woods, I'm headed to the Armoury to shake your hand.

It's just jealousy, Ethan, jealousy. You and the Armoury folks look great, and you are a pleasure to do business with. My best wishes to you for Christmas!

I herewith want to apologise to Ethan for my stupid critique.

Ethandesu, thus far to my knowledge, I do not know any one of your size who dresses like you & makes clothes look that f--king good. It is quite sad that these fellow SF'er would stupidly pick on your (out)fits & physique. Oh well, I guess people on the internet are full of it.

Anyway, here's a pic for y'all to nit-pick.

Come, come, gentlemen. A few snide comments on a men's clothing forum surely don't warrant such an emotional outpouring.

No one's being emotional. We're just stating the facts.

Armoury crew are style not fashion icons/guides for us all. There's a distinct difference.

This is quite nice.  It's basically Lino minus the Technicolor dream coat(s) motif.
