Butler, you're one of my favorite posters and this looks great. Not sure about that guy's bow in the back. Stripes? Your mom looks wonderful for 91!

Describing anything about high-end shoes as austerity has always struck me as ironic. I know, it's an appropriation of the term, but it still cracks me up anytime somebody mentions their austerity brogues that cost upwards of $500.

I suppose I should add that I really dig the fit, Moo.

Butler, your mom looks great.

My past two days in attempted style. I think taking self mirror pictures in the tailor shop is an all time low for me.

This is so many levels of horrible. It's like you're peacocking the whole outfit to death. Sorry.

However, the advice of a trusted tailor trumps anything that I have to say on the subject.

 

This is me wearing the coat buttoned. Too long isn't it? I think I will have it shortened by 2-3 inches and will also have the waist suppressed a bit.

 

 

What I was wearing underneath - I posted a picture of me wearing this Neil Barrett jacket a while ago to ask if I should keep it; one SFer said that DB doesn't suit me and told me to return it. Stubborn me kept it anyway since I thought the fit was ok. Did I make a mistake?

The coat is not too long- it just looks like a full-sized coat. It would look classy with a suit, but out of place with a casual attire. You should shorten it if you plan on wearing jeans with it, but it's not necessary if you would wear it with a suit in the winter (also would be more functional that way). The buttons are very low, and there's a chance the coat would look awkward if you shorten it too much (It would certainly look awkward to me, but of course, not everyone shares the same perspectives).
