He tapered them much too aggressively the first time, and they were billowing in the hips like riding pants. I think the second time around is about as good as it's going to get.
I agree on the buttoning point, but one of the funny things about Toronto is you can either buy all of your suits online and never quite know what you're gonna get until you get it, or spend all of your money ever all the time. I think working the lapels helped things a bit. In the earlier pic the dry cleaners left a really hard crease to the third button.
I think a much better solution is for me to start hitting the gym again so I don't look like a frumpy pear.
Lol, I wasn't trying to grow a beard or anything, just been lazy to shave lately. It'll be gone by tomorrow, don't worry. Less critique of the hair, more critique of the clothes (although i know its a simple fit so not much to critique)
Been gone for a few ... missing Ghana already ... a few shots to share Heading out ... Home sweet home ... Sourcing artwork at the neighborhood art joint ... Random day at the beach ... Final rounds b4 heading back ... write up on tropical dressing and more pics on the blog in the coming days ...
This suit does make a statement, but it does need to rest for the summer season.

Regarding your fit: loved the way you combined the sc and tie, but the shirt seemed out of place, colourwise...
Wow crusty, NOW that is a power suit. I feel like i immediately have to obey your rules, whatever they might be
I am flattered, Sppozy, that you've linked my name with the others on your list.
I am not in disagreement with your take on the yellow shirt with my SC from Friday - the color tended to overtake everything near it.
As for blind obedience to my rules (at least while wearing today's fit), I just warn you that people have gotten themselves in very odd situations doing that sort of thing - forewarned is forearmed . . .
