The KGB is dead. Long live the FSB.

The socks, PS, and stripe in the tie are all navy in real life, but they're reading as black on my monitor.

Those lapels are offensive no matter what time of year it is!

Are the quarters on that jacket that closed or is it your stance? There also seems to be some bowing issues with the lapels, especially the one on the right. Plus the jacket looks a little too short on you.

A little short? The sleeves are the same length as the coat. A full body shot would be so hard to look at with this sort of fit...for me anyway.

School... are you a professor? Either way, I say it's not good for you to dress like this...

I am a middle school teacher. What's wrong with the way I am dressed??

The jacket is perhaps shorter than other jackets; however, it does cover my ass, as Phat Guido would suggest.

The quarters are probably a little closed. I'm also standing on my toes in front of my bathroom mirror. My ID badge is in the chest pocket underneath the right (my left) lapel. Because I had the summer off and spent it at the gym, I am much more muscular than the maker of the suit probably imagined a 38S would be. As for the jacket being a little short, I'm only 5'7...

noway you are a 38S if you are 5'7"... that's the problem. as for the bowing issue, see if you can get a local tailor to tigthen the lapel tape

I had considered the scale of the stripings being close, but had thought that the values (i.e. relative darkness/lightness) of them, and the contrast levels (low for both shirt and suiting, their stripes against their background, and high between shirt material and suit material) would mitigate this - perhaps not, to some eyes, but thanks for the honest reaction.


I think it is fantastic.
