"+1 on the tie, details please I love it. P.S. re. thighs/hips - in English we just say big butt. ,)"
The tie is a pre-SF 7 cm (I know, I know) wool+silk mix I got for cheap at this department store. My wardrobe is not very expensive
And funnily enough, I don't have much of a butt... what I have on my hips are remains of weight loss that don't want to go away
You might be served by a slightly shorter jacket... Not much shorter though.
I think the camera angle is making my legs appear somewhat shorter than they are. I actually find this jacket a bit short, but you might be right, a shorter jacket could make legs appear longer... thanks for the tip!
