- I have noticed that your pants are lack shape? Maybe to full or straight? May I suggest with your next commission to go for a higher rise to make your legs look longer.

Thanks for this. I think you're right that the fit of the suit is off a bit. There are a few reasons and some you already mentioned.

-Button stance is a bit off at times due to the original design based on buttoning the bottom button. I changed it after realizing that was a mistake. Still need to add an inner button so that it doesn't pull like it does. That'd fix a lot of the button stance problem.

-Pants were because I wanted something very loose and comfortable. I think you're right that I should have had a higher rise. The jacket itself might have been better off slightly shorter with how tightly it fits on top.

-Lastly, I made it last year and I'm the dumb guy that gained shoulder mass and worked on my lats the whole time. I think ALL of my suits fit slightly off these days.

Here's the robot pose:

Now that is a sign of summertime. The shirt and tie combo with the lt. tan seersucker is rather splashy, and would really wake a person up, but you pull it off well. 9.5 points -- .5 deducted for a plain withe PS, bright and fluffy to offset the shirt & tie, would complete the eye opener.

Another consistent and good look.

Colours are great, especially the tie.

Jacket collar seems a bit loose around your neck in some of those pics?

I like the color play. The shoulder seems pretty strong for a casual type of suit, but I'll let the specialists weigh in on that one. The tie is great for summer.

I don't know about business, but it would be smashing on a summer Sunday.

Nice suit and combo there Crusty. I have had my eye on a seersucker but even though the SW is close to the South, seersuckers are rare here. In fact they are not even stocked at our best Dept Store. I am on my way to the Caribbean and will hopefully stumble on some nice linen, etc. Well done!

The resemblance to Crispin Glover was also mentioned by Holdfast a little while back in an earlier post......the look is entirely unintentional though.

He is a bit of an oddball when interviewed, and although I'm not a huge fan of his earlier stuff (I never actually saw Back to the Future part I or II), his performance in Bartleby killed me....you really gotta see it.

Thanks...the hair was actually a bit wilder before, but I've toned it down since. It's obviously a greasy mess, but I'm none the less flattered that you dig it.........

That combo is screaming out for a white button down shirt. And I think cuff links are too formal for seersucker. Looks like a fun suit to wear, enjoy.

Well you did to others; I was quite happy with things but I'd never admit that.
