A richer/darker green or brown tends to work better on many skin tones I think.

I guess the colour on the picture is a gross misconception, based on the premise lighting and my polo shirt, the colour is a light grayish brown, not dark brown or green.
For those who said there are lots of men wearing brown suits, I guess you don't live in big cities.

FU might be too strong for this, nonetheless with the right shirts and tie, this will be a very nice suit for non-business purpose, pic soon

initials are homage to the greatest wu-tang solo album ever

 

Quoted for truth.

 

I like a lot of the GZA and Ghostface solo too. However, I thought only white people listened to Wu Tang.  At least that is who mostly attends their concerts.

Mostly white people attend Wu Tang concerts? Are you kidding? That surprises me. Anyway, I like everyone but my favorites are Raekwon and GZA. Method Man is good but overrated.

Ghost Face is the best to me.. he is the most consistent in terms of records.. he is still releasing records that are hot..cant say that for the others..

Is that shirt light blue or white? The pale pink with the grey is fantastic.
One day I will have trousers that fit that well.

Nice colours. You know, I saw a near-idently fabric in a Zegna suit the other day. Very nice (would have been tempted if it had fit me better). You have a real eye for finding good vintage items.

Thanks.
Yes, it is a nice fabric and good quality. I only payed 1100 SEK, approx 120 GBP for the Joseph suite. And a little more for the shoes

I like the concept but I would have gone with a more subdued tie. Perhaps an eggplant or wine color. On the other hand, I've never been able to reconcile the British love for pink ties. wink.gif

Hah! This sounds familiar...

 

I'm bothered with "you look ridiculous" comments everyday because I like my pants with almost no break. Learned to live with them. Coming from men with sloppy pants with hems that gather above the shoe and inseams that start at the knee, I don't care lol8[1].gif

 

About your suit, I don't think the jacket is that short, as it seems to cover your rear; it looks like you're wearing your pants a tad lower than they were intended to (crotch sags a bit) and that might contribute to the shortness effect. Sleeves are a bit long, by 2 cm or so. Jacket overall  seems a tad tight; you can see some bowing in the lapels (tight chest), pulling at the top button (tight waist) and non-overlapping bottom button (tight hips); though all this might be due to your stance. Shoulders fit well; there might be enough seam allowance in the jacket to let it out a bit elsewhere, so it ends up with cleaner lines.

 

Is this RTW or MTM?

Good to know I am not the only one who had the same problem. I don't care about what they think, The problem is that at the end they always do what they think is right. 

 

The jacket can be buttoned easily, and it's not uncomfortable to wear. Somehow, I like jackets with a little bit of silhouette, but, yes, I don't like the bow effect on the lapels, it's not looking good (the collar peaks should reach the lapels - or vice versa).

 

This is RTW, without altering, for now. Only the trousers has been hemmed a bit).

Yeah, but with some perseverance you might get there. I usually hem the pants myself, but when not, I've already convinced both my tailor and my habitual salesmen from El Corte Inglés to leave the trousers the way I want lol8[1].gif

same here. and even for my own liking it took a while getting used to my pants looking like that, but it really is so much better than the standard pool of fabric that gathers around so many mens pant cuffs.

I had some resistance too when I started bring my stuff to my tailor, but the bottom line is that you are the boss. You have to wear the clothes, not the tailor. You have to be firm and say, "Yes, I understand that you think they are long or short enough, but I don't think so, and I want them a bit shorter /longer". The tailor will adapt to your personal preferences when dealing with you. biggrin.gif
