I think getting a bit older, as well as learning about and appreciating the world of tailoring I began to see the benefits not only in appearance, but in comfort as well as how you are perceived. All in all, I feel that it looks more elegant and timeless.
I have always preferred a more monochrome color palate, which hasn't changed much over the years so I like to express myself in textures and silhouettes.
I think I can carry the fuller cut, because I am on the tall side, 6' 2". But then again I feel that some of the better dressers on this forum don't err on the side of tight, much the opposite. Many think looking good, or good tailoring is about how close one can get cloth to their bodies without causing ripples. This is a very amateur way to approach tailoring.

I totally agree with this. In no way was I implying on tightness being the standard here. It's something I try to caution my brothers on, especially taking into consideration that they really aren't built for severe waist suppression in the first place. And while a fuller cut might not work on me, I appreciate all kinds of silhouettes nonetheless.

I like this quite a lot.

 

Because you know what you're doing, I'm going to nitpick just a little: your preferred super-precise/clean/formal look means you really need to keep your suits well-pressed. Wrinkles and creases can be perfectly pleasant, but they're not your style. Of course, they'll always reappear, but between wearings, get them pressed. Also, your square is escaping a bit too much for what you're after.

 

 

 

 

 

Messing around on the weekend...

 

 

 

 

I like everything but the tie. By the way, I am sure you are hoping this game against Korea doesn't go to penalties

Yeah, fashion silhouettes on otherwise conservative suits I find looks a bit odd and there is a lot of it today. I guess its just how the pendulum swings.

guilty as charged here. I try as much as possible to not stray to far out though

I was watching the (wonderfully golden for GB) athletics, so only caught the shoot-out itself. Meh, even on such a golden night, nothing changes in the football... we always lose on penalties! :)

On this whole fuller cut thing (which I think looks awesome on both pB and Holdfast)... do you think it is achieveable with MTM? I mean... if I wanted a fuller chest, would it be possible just with measurement changes or does it need to be cut in a different way?

 

By the way, I think pB's trousers would have looked better if they were made in a more straight cut, with less tapering. Might just be the picture angle, though.

This is my first time posting here at Men's Clothing's WAYWRN and my only suit, because I don't usually wear suits of two reasons:

1. I am not old enough to wear suits to job or school

2. Suits don't come in my size or are very difficult to find, which is XXS/42R.

Please, give me some good tips to improve myself or the suit.

I usually wear this as a 3-piece, but I was looking for variety. I am also not sure about the tie, first time using it...sorry about the bathroom pic.
