no difference just as warm!

but i like your look perhaps a bit more supression in the waist and the tweaking in the pants but overall looks good chap! also i am gland you did try to match you shoe and breifcase!

You have very nice taste Soph.

The amount of cuff showing is absolutely perfect. The shoes and breifcase are really stylish too!

I think your overall look would look 100 times (ok...10 times) better if you went MTM or bespoke though. The size of the suit seems to fit, but the pants and jacket have a lot of small areas that are not quite right on your body. Of course, I am not saying it looks bad at all!

Oh and 1 more thing...since you like Neapolitan style...how about some cuffs on the pants? I think wide cuffs on the pants will bring out the silouette on the pants and show off your shoes much better.

I use an insole to make them fit a bit more snug, which I like my boots to fit.
9 1/2 G fit like an 11 D US imo.
They are great business causal boots also.

-- Interesting question. I orignally did cuffs at 1.75 inches, but I've found I much prefer the line of no cuff with this type of look although I do have cuffs on some of my suits. Despite Tomasso's obbession with the narrow lol than standard US. I think the Neapolitan's have it right with their overall look. Yes, this is not authentic neapolitan bespoke no padding etc. etc. but I don't want that look for business entirely. Although it is excellent casually imo. But I narrow pants, and I love to shoe off an entire shoe, why hide such a passion as excellent shoes. Bespoke would be great! But a Ceasare Attolini bespoke is not in my budget nor is it necessary for my career. Most people dress horridly in the medical field. Thanks for your input.

9 1/2 like an 11 I gues I'll take my chances with a size 9 and see what happens. Thanks

Yes, I would say with out the orthpedic insole a 9 1/2 g fits like a 10 1/2 D US

They aren't quite the EEE one would expect due to the toe shape. I'd say more of a E to EE. The H fitting is probably a true EEE. Great boots though.

Soph: Great suit, that's my pants fit of choice too. Maybe a bit more contrast in the tie would be nice, however?

Yes, my 6G fits something like a 7, but a bit wider than a D, more like an E.

Great look. The arms and shoulders don't drape as well as I would prefer personally, but that can probably be attested to your muscular physique and the cut of the suit. The boots also throw the symmetry a little out of proportion. That's just a matter of preference. But, you obviously have good taste in clothes and know the look you want to achieve.

I too have been eyeing the Craftsman, but I'm uncertain what size to order. I often wear a 9, but AE's 9, in both the Colton and Park Ave., is a bit too narrow in the toebox. Length is fine and width is fine elsewhere. This has me stuck, as I don't want to order boots that are too tight, but loose Chelseas sound like trouble. Thoughts on what I should go with?
