It's not your typical "first suit" fabric and perhaps not even the second or third. It would be interesting to hear the thought process behind that choice. The suit looks very good, of course.

That it looks very good and the fabric is wonderfully soft was pretty much the thought process. Chris brought it down from Dallas after our first meeting because he thought it was something I'd like, and I did. Not any more convincing than that, though Chris deserves all credit for having the thought.

Also, thanks for the thumbs.

I read the entire post. I actually meant "What brand is this shirt?" and "From what materials is it made?" 

 

Also, yes I did read the entire post.  Maybe it's 100% non-iron cotton. Maybe it's made of untreated cotton. Maybe it's made of supima cotton. Maybe it's a Brooks Brothers shirt. Maybe not.

 

 

 

 

Further, even though I posed my question incorrectly, why didn't you add something beneficial to the argument and offer an answer? kthanx bye

My old Dolce sports coat is now, officially, way too small...

@TTO Not a chance of doing up those buttons! I have a few SC like that, can't bring myself to sell them/throw them away though.

In retrospect I think this is a fail, for lack of contrast between jacket and trousers. What do you guys think? Trousers are gray flannel, jacket is a green donegal-type weave. The jacket's color is a little deeper IRL, but I still think it needs more contrast.

Jacket: Attolini
Trousers: PRL
Shirt: Robert Talbott
Tie: Dillards
Square: Brooks Brothers

Hey fellas,

I posted a thread here a while back asking for some critique on a BB suit that I'll be wearing throughout this semester to recruiting events and interviews. The common consensus in the thread was that:

1) My pants were too short, and
2) Switch out the repp tie

I snapped a new photo over the weekend at an event that I attended. I know the photo is pretty low quality (I had to crop it), but from what you can see, how do the pants fit?

I feel like the pants are still a little short -- they flare out a little when I walk. I'm not sure if that's due to them being too short, or not being narrow enough.

Thanks for any advice!

It looks fine to me. Cool jacket.

Pants seem alright, but maybe a little wonky because your knees are locked. I'd also get a heavier tie with less of a sheen. The knot seems a bit small for the collar (try a pratt or half windsor). And button your jacket when standing, you'll look better smile.gif

 

I like that you are wearing brown shoes when everyone else went with black. Can't really tell much about the quality of the shoes from the picture, but nice brown shoes with that suit will probably make you memorable (in a good way) at such events.

Thanks! The shoes are Carmina shortwings; I'm hoping that I'll stand out in a good way when it comes interview time and not in a "look at this douchey kid" kind of way.

When you say a "heavier" tie, can you elaborate on what you mean?
