Looks like grey worsted. So even if it's not an orphaned suit jacket it looks like one.

um, what? the coat sleeves are far from too long. The shirt sleeves could be 1/4" or 1/2" shorter. The coat sleeves are fine most likely, and certainly not too long.

Not happy with how the grey v-neck jumper works with the rest of the colours today. I blame it on still feeling half asleep when getting dressed, and deciding I needed a jumper at the last minute and not really thinking about what colour to use. Square isn't ideal either (a darker complementary colour would have worked better).

 

But anyway...

As I am 5'9" tall, I'd be very undecided, were it my coat smile.gif.

upr_crust I'm 5'6'' so very short (and fat with a disproportionate neck-body - very unfortunate I know :(). I would love to shorten the coat but as yywwyy pointed out, the buttons are positioned so slow that shortening the coat would ruin the overall balance. I bought it because I thought it's a very nice cashmere-wool overcoat (and partially because the salesperson was such a sweet talker); when I'm home I'll post a pic of me wearing the coat with the buttons closed so you guys can help me judge if alteration is needed. Maybe I can shorten it by 1-2 inches only.

I wish that I could work in the fashion industry :)). The interview was actually for a job at a management consulting firm. I know it's a bit flashy to bring an LV to an interview but to be honest, I don't think that many people would recognize the Damier Graphite pattern. I personally like this cover bloc very much; it's nice and functional so why not? Plus, as far as I'm concerned, management consultants are fairly snobbish and I've seen them (and the receptionists at their firms) looking down on students not looking the part when going to the interviews. And Claghorn, I do wish that my friends are generous enough to gift me LV :)) - Plz be my friend if you're that type of friend :)).

Suit - BB

Cufflinks - Longmire
PS - Ashear
Shoes - Harris, via Barney's NYC

Love the hat! I've also broken my felt ones out for the Fall.

I wasn't advocating taking up the hem more than a couple of inches, max, but think that the balance would not be affected greatly if you did shorten the coat by 2 inches. It will never be a coat in the currently fashionable short mode, but I think that it might be a bit more flattering were it a little shorter for you. However, the advice of a trusted tailor trumps anything that I have to say on the subject.

With morning temperatures in NYC under 50F, and with my exposed scalp, a hat is a necessity.

Would lost the hat. Otherwise pretty nice, what watch is it this time :)?
