JOS
Aquascutum
(not pictured) BB pants (tweedy brown, goes with the squares in the tie)

Dunno why, but this is the one Jos Banks shirt I really properly like.

acrid - like the fit a lot...though I am more curious about the whiteboard in the background. Something, apparently, is decreasing.

The last few sinews of resistance to my innate charisma and inimitable wit.

Earl Moro

I didn't win, but I thought it was a pretty damn good drink.

I really like that tie, stitchy.
post #44503 of 78717
Stitch - tie shirt and jacket look great together. Silhouette wise, I think you could benefit from:

-slightly extended shoulder
-slightly longer jacket (could be an angle thing)
-slightly lower buttoning point
-slightly longer trou
-wider leg opening

thanks, buddy.

all solid info, and i am aware of it. i dont disagree with any of this. SC was from B&S and is a little small. it was a great deal and is a great jacket, so i felt it was worth it even though the fit is not perfect. i think its still quite good. and i think the length is exaggerated by the angle, as you astutely pointed out.

the pants length i dont really mind, and actually wear a tad longer in normal wear, i hiked em up a bit extra to compensate for the jacket buttoning point. thanks again for the critique. i hope i was not dismissive.

There are some jackets that I have a 3 roll 2...the lapel rolls enough naturally that I've had it lightly pressed into a 3r2. Other jackets have flat lapels and so I fasten the top button. I like the way it looks and it just looks sloppy otherwise.

 

I would really like to hear the aesthetic analysis behind avoiding that top button. It doesn't work for all body types, but I'm 6 feet with shoes and have the right torso shape.

 

Got linked to a solid post on the matter...but it didn't really get into any real detail. Here are a couple pictures from it that I found interesting.

Looks alright...just not a fan.

 

12 kinds of awesome.

Ii I didn't get your idea wrong, I agree with you. The first two pics look alright TO ME, but not the look I will like to use. I think that in the first two pics, the top button, should be buttoned. In the case of the other two pics, the 3 roll 2, looks awesome, yeah I would use something like that.

Estitchy, I like this, especially the sock-trouser-shoe combo.
