Ah ha. 1.5 out of 4 (Counting getting Spoo's shoe wrong but knowing he was there as half) is... well bad, but given that there were two wild cards in the mix...

Thank you kindly, sir. The suit is my first new suit purchased after my discovery of SF, so it actually fits well. :-)

Nice collar on the shirt.

Thanks. I have been slowly adding nice shirts to my collection, but this one is a cheapie - glad to see it's up to snuff.

Thanks man, the cufflinks are sterling silver great dane heads, the maker referred to me by Spoo. They are pretty garishly large, but, so too are great danes, so I like 'em a lot, as I own/love great danes.

As it's close to Easter, my color scheme for the day has been derived from Easter eggs, it seems, and my fit, which looks much better in real life, looks lumpy in the photos. Arghhhhh.

FWIW, and have at it then . . .

I like the color combination, and think the socks are absolutely perfect. My only nit (I know I'm picking the fly shit out of the pepper here) is the rise on the pants. It lends to a very small torso. I've never seen you without a vest so I don't know if this is a standard rise for you or not, but it's something that jumps out at me.

I like the new position in the second pic; it's good to mix it up. Oh, and I really dig the PS on this fit as well. The overall color scheme is really nice.

First version was much better. Second attempt is very disjointed. No colour or pattern harmony.

Love that shade of pink. Overall outfit is very solid too.

I guess what I mean is the shirt/tie combo is actually pretty nice to look at but it's far too striking within the context of the overall look. It highlights the shirt and tie at the expense of the overall look. Spoo: that's a really great jacket fabric. Love the windowpane on the heathered herringbone grey. No fit pic from me today, you'll be relieved to know. Good Friday, good weather, and very little to do!

Why? I rather like your fits.

I'm not sure that the rise of the trousers is longer or shorter than my norm, but the trousers (PRL vintage 1990's) do have a less-than-flattering pattern of pleats which can make one look squatter than one actually is (and I need no extra help in that department, thank you).

For the record, the jacket, shirt, socks, and shoes are BB; the trousers, belt and PS are PRL.

My favorite of your fits to date. The chocolate and pink is wicked and the PS is spot on. You also look very comfortable.

I like this look on you UC. Very clean and it doesn't look lumpy to me. I can see the weight loss and you're looking very gentlemanly. Very "Springy" IMO!

Thanks. I like pink, because I'm a nancy.

For those that are not fans of the tie, rest assured it only has one or two more wears left in it. The slip-stitch, if that's the right terminology for it, is coming loose on the narrow part of the blade, so I fear it's not much longer for this world. Shame, because I quite like the tie myself, for occasional use.
Thanks... Shame about the tie.
