DB came - your opinion? (No alterations yet)

DBs are really hard to get right and people have really divergent opinions on how they should fit. But really small changes in the length and the shaping can shift a DB from looking great to looking too boxy or too skirty or whatever. The placement of buttons matters a lot too. I don't really know how to describe or take apart exactly how each element contributes to the overall look, but I think because the lines are so strong and well defined (e.g., one horizontal line running across the bottom of the jacket as opposed to the broken-up bottom of the SB, the long line of the peak lapel running all the way across the body to the button, etc.), misplacing them even a bit can really change the look. Add in the fact that DBs are pretty rare, it's difficult to get a DB in which the wearer looks comfortable and at home. I think the likelihood of getting a great-looking RTW DB are pretty low. Of course I think mine is amazing:

but I remember when I posted it most senior forum members didn't like it.

So anyway, on this particular DB...to me it looks skirty/hippy. But if you can, try and play around with it a bit by pinning it and taking careful note of how the look of it changes when you make it shorter or more waisted. Be very demanding and precise when looking at a DB. Then once you like it, rock it and don't look back.

I guess this was for me, so thank you very much!

Funny, I was thinking. How nitpicky. But I agree with you 100%. biggrin.gif

Thanks! What shirt colour would be better?

The color could be the same, but with pencil or candy stripes instead of the multi-stripe you've got going on there.

IC, the checks on the SC and shirt are too close in scale. The tie hurts my feelings, but getting past that, even if you like it, I don't think it works well with this SC.
post #41755 of 78724
I was wondering about the scale. I went with this shirt because it's chilly and the fabric is nice and thick (yes, that terminology was on purpose). I can do better on the tie, but I freaking love this thing.

A pic of me getting my pic taken for an article on large format photography (that's my pic behind me). The cane isn't ornamental, I just cropped out the boot on my rt leg.
