I agree with SB that the fit looks overloaded. Great-looking SC but the waistcoat looks short though (and/or tucked into your trousers? ). I'm not a fan of a waistcoat with a belt , waistcoasts calls for braces, I think.post #36484 of 787229/25/12 at 7:48amQuote:Originally Posted by GMMcL

Waistcoat: J. Crew
Tie: Italian woven wool, maker unknown
Square: Italian silk, maker unknown
(Sorry about the waistcoat lapel here. This is the only shot that shows the square.
On second look, I think the problem is simply that the waistcoat is much too small: the bunching between buttons as well as the gap, seems to hint that it's very tight. It's a waistcoat, not a corset - be comfortable! Great fabric though. Also, most trousers from "fashion" stores like Zegna tend to have a fashionable low waistline. If, like you (and me), you're not a skinny teenager, it's a fight to keep them where they're supposed to be. With a belt, that fight is lost, with braces it's possible to win. But the best version is trousers that have more depth in the crotch and a higher waist: nobody wants to see a "male cameltoe".
I love that coat, and the tie and jacket are really nice too.post #36485 of 787229/25/12 at 7:55ampost #36486 of 787229/25/12 at 7:56amQuote:Quote:
Thanks for the feedback; I do appreciate it. Yes, the waistcoat is too short, and had ridden up on me as well. The SC is not worsted, but I see how it looks that way in the photo. The trou are separates, and not a part of a suit. I'd originally gone for a darker, patterned flannel, but it made the fit even more unruly.
Again, appreciate the input.post #36487 of 787229/25/12 at 7:59ampost #36488 of 787229/25/12 at 8:03ampost #36489 of 787229/25/12 at 8:19ampost #36490 of 787229/25/12 at 9:06ampost #36491 of 787229/25/12 at 9:17amQuote:
I'm not sure exactly what it is, but in general, you are an annoying individual. Your clothing, never ending opinion and inordinate stream of posts aren't helping.post #36492 of 787229/25/12 at 9:30ampost #36493 of 787229/25/12 at 9:52amOriginally Posted by PTWilliams

Lufty - is the tie a silk printed with red spots on a navy background? If so, do you have a source for it please? I've been looking for that pattern for ages to replace an old worn-out one.
I keep meaning to get the trousers of this suit tapered a little below the knee, but always forget. It's not that obvious in this photo, but they'd look better with about 1" smaller circumference.post #36494 of 787229/25/12 at 10:01amQuote:
Yes, I saw that in the picture. I blame that on my fifth beer. Fortunately, I am among friends at styleforum.
Actually, I was the best dressed because everyone else was dressed for comfort. There was one guy from the Tie society in a suit, but everyone else was pretty much in tee shirts and jeans. I think everyone was so impressed that I put any effort into what I was wearing. Of course, may its because the models and people in the business were on their day-off so to speak, but I really got the feeling that dressing well to look good wasn't something they'd naturally do, at least among the guys. The worst dressed on styleforum would have been among the best dressed there. But everyone there was supper nice.post #36495 of 787229/25/12 at 10:06amQuote:
And yet, you don't know me from Adam. How brave. Do you think, perchance, you take this internet forum thing a little too seriously? Breathe. xx
