The suit fabric and cut is beautiful, as are the shoes - bravo on that.
This recurring pose, however, serves no flattery to your ensemble, accessories or otherwise.
There seems to be some difference of opinion on the pose - the colors are truer to reality than in my standing shots, and there are those who find the relaxed nature of the pose appealing. As a means by which to show off the clothes, however, I have to agree with you.

I'm not usually a fan of three button suits but this looks fantastic with the alterations, kudos to your tailor for that. Very nice PS too - just picked up some similar floral numbers myself in green and cream.
The three-piece suits, (all eight of them, at last count - I seem not to be able to resist a sale) are going into hibernation, as spring has finally come to NYC, and I am sure summer heat directly behind it, but thanks for the compliments.

Anyway, have a good one!
I thought your suit was bold, until I saw HF's fit for the day . . .

At the very least, I should be given credit for my brilliant innovation of the day: instant turnback cuffs. This jacket came with working sleeve buttons, and the sleeves can't be shortened any further despite still being a trifle long for me. But by undoing the bottom two buttons, turning back the cuffs, and then buttoning the lowest buttonhole back up on the second button... perfect! Evil genius, or what?
Today's jacket is bold as brass, but has its appeal, and though I am unsure about matching them with those exceedingly blue trousers, I can say with some certainty that your tie today is definitely a no-go, IMHO - truly mufugly. But, from your comments, you were expecting a total load of isht on your fit today, so, not wishing you to disappoint you, let me add to the isht pile . . .
Exactly my point, fellow; it's too subtle Lord-Barrington, are you auditioning to become one of Tibor's concubines? It's a big harem; I've seen pictures
Lord Barrington was just being kind as he could tell I was being genuine.. My Harem pictures shall stay on my facebook only, never on Styleforum. I know it will spark a thread on DT. :P Barims do you have any summer walking umbrellas?
