CBD WAYWRN: An Experiment - Page 72

post #1066 of 6978
From WAYWRN. I promise not to sully this thread with many of my pics, but I am genuinely wondering whether this fit would qualify.

The suit is grey, but looks different due to the lighting - the day two photo was taken in the morning with natural light in the room.
The final tie is by far the nicest (but then I have dubious taste in ties )

Those shoes look nice to my eyes - great tie too.

Manton: I know I won't change your mind on the tie or shirt, but wondered whether this slightly better stance allayed your concerns over today's suit fit:



I won't deny that there is some skirt flare but I think it shows it's not as egregious as the main pic suggested...

The waist is a bit snug, and the shoulders are a bit lumpy and "straight" even for a DB in my opinion.

Thanks for the feedback. What do you think about it's suitability as a CBD fit, assuming your critiques re: fit were addressed?

Hmmmm, ok. I don't even know how to lace a shoe like that in all sincerity!

Thanks for the feedback.

Not quite. That thing cost more than most Rednecks would spend on their wardrobe in 5 years.

Fit looks off in this shot. I have seen it before, looking better...so maybe this is just an off shot Acrid.

I would have selected a darker tie.

Another business trip. I know how most people here feel about button downs with a suit, but are they CBD, especially American CBD?

Thanks. Fixed the knot post-photo. Don't know what happened there.

All of his shirts are custom.
