Deserves a new thread-  sounds interesting.

I'd like to write a review/blog/article/something about Nick Lopez, a bespoke tailor in Houston. There isn't a lot of information about him, so I thought I'd write something about my experiences with him. I have pictures of the shop, I've talked to Nick about the suit-making process at his shop, and I have first hand experience, so I thought I'd post something on Styleforum.

 

I could just start a thread, but would that be the best thing to do?

Hmmm... I would be in love with it too, very nice.

You have your shoulders hunched forward though. That's why the gape in your right chest is so apparent in the sunlight.

Stand up straight and you will look a whole lot better, and put a tie on to finish it off, maybe dark blue with a bit of surface interest.

I'm always intrigued by the books on your shelf. Today, especially interested in the book about Fairfield Porter. What little I know of him, I like his stuff. And what a great first name--"Fairfield".

I think you're wrong on the pants fit and I'll leave it at that -I can't imagine we could possibly have a constructive conversation about this given your narrow approach to what can look good.

I think this is being a little unfair to the MC guys.  Shah's pants in that photo look remarkably like shitty Gap chinos.  The only reason that I strongly suspect that they're actually neither ill-fitting nor look like chinos is because I also have pants that look like shitty chinos in photos but nothing like that in real life.  Shah, are they even cotton?

Thank you for your praise, but I am as fallible, style-wise, as the next person (a fact that is brought to my attention when I post a fail on here).

The Fairfield Porter catalogue came from a retrospective of his work under the aegis of the Whitney, I believe, some years ago. His work is rather like a modernized version of Edward Hopper (albeit in a very Connecticut WASP context).

Good morning everyone. Sorry for the poor lighting, the suit is a brown tic weave with red windowpane flannel. If i had such a thing i would have paired this with a burnt orange paisley or white linen with burgundy edge square. thoughts? Jacket is a bit short, will get longs in in this cut in the future.

I need to find a way to take better pics... The pic quality the camera angle is becoming terribly annoying...

Bottom seems lose and your top seems tight. I'm not sure if that's the look you're going for, but I feel as if all of your fits I've seen is way too tight for you. That might just be a personal preference though.

Citan, I don't think that the jacket is unduly short - judging from the length of your arms, the hem of the skirt of the jacket falls within the tip of your thumb and the thumb joint, which is within the range of proper length (my salesman at Paul Stuart, when last I was there, rather pooh-poohed the traditional "rule of thumb" - the hem of the jacket being in line with the thumb tip).

I think that you've got one too many patterns going on with this fit, at least for my taste (currently - I've done three-pattern mash-ups myself many times in the past). I'd have gone with a solid shirt or a solid tie with this suit, though I like both the shirt and tie separately, and I like the color combination overall. A light blue shirt with the tie that you're wearing, or a solid burgundy tie with your shirt, or even, as you suggested, a burnt orange paisley (with a small-scale, muted pattern, if you're wearing the shirt shown).
