Thanks gentlemen. HF, excellent fit today, and may your phrase "ongoing weight loss" be true, as I've done something most untoward with my AmEx at Paul Stuart - a POW black/white glen plaid suit, to replace its 20-year-old predecessor. As it's Paul Stuart's more slender model (and it fit, oddly enough), I was mesmerized into purchasing it - it's to be ready May 10th - photos will be taken very shortly thereafter.
Well-fitting clothes are an excellent motivation to maintain weight, that's for sure!

I must admit, I thought it was a pale cream, which enhanced the slightly retro vibe. I will continue to choose to believe in my mind's eye that the shirt was indeed that shade!
Green/Grey is a great combo (so's green/navy). Nice to see it getting some love.

Maybe the Ninja IS MoK...? (he posted yesterday in the CBD thread, after a short absence. MoK, I mean, not the Ninja).

Still looks good. The square is a delightfully incongruously insane touch.

The colours are very pleasant and the fit is good too. I think tab collars do not suit you, but then again, who do they suit, really? So have fun with them! I think I prefer this suit rolled to the bottom button, extending the lapel line. The lapel roll is soft enough to cope with it. Further to suggestions from others, I've tried pairing this suit with a contrast collar shirt; I think that also suits it better, so thank you to those making that suggestion.

I like it better rolled to the bottom as well. I also like this tie with it, but not the shirt.
For those interested, the river here is up a couple feet from Monday and is supposed to crest about four feet higher by Friday. So far no major damage in Louisville, not like those in places farther downriver. We pray they'll stay safe.
