+1. I have a soon to be 10 month old baby girl, and she is the most wonderful thing in the world.  Its amazing the bond that is built with a Dad and his Daughter.  Either way, you will enjoy your baby regardless of the gender.

Congrats again cheers.gif

Congrats guys. My baby girl goes to Kindergarden this fall...I will be a wreck. On the bright side, she got scared last night, and managed to get in bed with me at 2AM, and I woke up with her snuggled on my shoulder. She doesn't sleep with us so being able to hold her for a few minutes like that was awesome...it was even awesomer that when I said, "Ok baby, you got to go to sleep in your bed now," that she gave a slight whimper, said ok Daddy, I love you...gave me a smooch and went right back to bed. inlove.gif

I have a hard time getting true colours when wearing this jacket (phone camera's exposure values get all messed up)

Looking good Diaz, jacket look a little roomy across the chest/waist but maybe that's an illusion created by you having your hand in the pocket? Or maybe it's just that the armholes are rather low on the jacket?

Suit and shoes looks great! Not sold on the tie and possibly also the shirt - hard to tell with that hipster-filter ffffuuuu.gif you used for the top image.

It's definately not roomy, in fact I should have gone for a size larger, as I like some more chest room and a size up had some nice drape, plus extra room I need at the seat. What you see is caused by my hand in the pocket pulling a bit due sligthly low armholes (though this jacket happens to have the highest armholes in my collection).

Yes, it's hard to tell fit from a photo that is not the traditional robo-pose photo. They are boring and stiff, but for diagnosing fit they are unmatched. I also feel that DBs are much less forgiving when it comes to fit - a DB has to fit spot on to look good. Yet another reason why I have not dared to venture into DBs yet (the exception being a vintage suit I bought because I fell in love with the cloth it was made out of). You're rocking you DB though, pretty awesome lapels on it fing02[1].gif! Oh, and I like your tie as well!

Thank you. Since I changed photo spot and angle it is easier to evaluate the results.

I understand the comments regarding jacket length. 

 

As for the ensemble it was more or less a grab and go this morning...

Will try with grey trousers another day.

With DB's I like the waist to be rather fitted, but with more extra room in the chest and shoulders than I would get on a SB. A drape cut does look awesome on a DB.

Go back to your old PS fold, RDiaz. The Foo thing looks like a rolled-up tie.

Still forgot to charge my camera battery so I have to rely on crappy my iPhone camera. Rather CBD today.

But I started doing the Foo thing because my old square puffing technique sucked frown.gif I could just come up with an ugly monkey fist. Guess I need to practice a "just stuff it in" chaotic puff...

 

 

Pingson, that's rather far from CBD, but I like it.

I found the more time i spent on my PS the worse it looked. Personally, the "grab 'n stuff" method works for me.
