Here's some testing with my new jacket. First up is orange, then blues with a chambray shirt. Pants white and then light grey.

How come? Classic style is classic style and those who complain believe in classic style. There's a bunch of guys in the US wearing nut huggers and short jackets. Gianni Agnelli was an Italian, of course, but did not dress like TimoTune (not to criticize Timo in particular, his style just is not classic in either Europe or the US).

I am really Jelly when you can wear such elegant clothing in UK, it is so hot here in Hong Kong that shorts aren't even cool enough for the day

Not everyone likes the classic American (wider) style. The Italian cut seems to be more appreciated over here. However this will be a subjective discussion, but i read to mutch complains about the tightness (some complains are correct, but some are not) of pants or jackets which are just fine.

I'll agree with you on this one: There are different thoughts, on how much space should between you and the jacket, you and the trouser leg, etc. I think, it's pretty obvious, as to when it's too tight. If you find it uncomfortable, if you can't sit down, without your dick showing, if there are pulling lines on the jacket, it's too tight. You want a jacket to lie perfectly smooth: This is the goal. When there are pulling lines everywhere, it's too tight; it's not a matter of a personal take on style/fit, IMO. Then again, you can go the other way, and have things too baggy; I think it's, almost, just as bad. Why wear a poncho-shaped suit? There is a definite point between too tight and too loose which is the ultimate, perfect fit. It's where people think this point is which is the subjective/objective debate. As tight as you can go, without making creases/pulling, etc, is fine--and meant to be, really--in my eyes. There are other things like leg openings, and how much shoe it should cover, etc...

It may be great minds in English, but of course...

Thanks I absolutely love that tie, too. The hobers simply know what they do.

老外 lǎowài. haven't heard it the other way around, both in cantonese as well as in mandarin?

nevertheless they don't call me that but rather gāowài. they say it's because I'm tall (gāo) and a foreigner (wàirén) but i've come to learn that gāo can also mean testicle...

O well if you are German, I can see your point. I rarely met any German guys less than 6 feet.

老外 is mandarin, I lived in Hong Kong and we use 鬼佬 for the same thing. just for your $0.02

睾 is different from 高, BTW do you read traditional chinese? that's cool my german friend is still poor after 2 years in practice.

Things like you are describing here are a reality of the RTW world, however it is not this simple. Sometimes you will have pull lines on a jacket, but guess what? It is not tight! 2+2=4, but so does 3+1, alas! Sometimes you can have a smooth jacket that is tight 4+0=4! Alas!. There is more to fit than just "bigger" or "smaller". It has to do with the fact that we all have lumps, bumps and curves in different places that will still be prominent in a bigger, or smaller garment if of the same cut. If you are sticking to RTW you have to try on many brands and models until you find something that is cut the best for your figure. Things should "feel" comfortable and be smooth without the sacrifice of a sloven look.

Kind of boring today. I swear, all these off white/cream/stone pants are different colors/cuts/fabrics in real life, not wearing the same pants over and over haha. I need more summer pant variety though I think frown.gif. May I ask for assistance on what to pair with this SC? I always feel like I am missing an element of color or pop with it. Pants, ties, shirts, etc would be nice to know your guys' thoughts.
Jacket-Belvest linen
Shirt-Polo
Tie-Nordstrom
Pants-BB cream white
Shoes-Brown suede chukka

i'm even tall by German standards though haha. my mandarin is coming along slowly. my cantonese suffices only for cab driver smalltalk up to 800 metres. i know pinyin and a little simple chinese but my writing looks 'like that of a three year old'. i wish i had more time to learn it, though. my girlfriend in china is Italian so now there's another language I wish I had paid more attention to in school...:S

 

@ citan: light cyan/white gingham PS?
