Booth is correct about squares. In particular, I agree that linen squares with colored edges are gross.

Meh, I like a little color in my squares. It's a little flashy, dare I say peacockish? But then again, I post regularly in the peacock thread. I guess it's just not for the faint of heart. peepwall[1].gif

You know I'm with you Alex.. I like either a very bold stripe (one very bold one) or a very subtle one that you cant see from far away until you get closer.. that's why Im on the fence about putting it into regular rotation..we'll see.. my tailor had to reweave the elbows and a tear on the knee...as for tie what would you suggest? I agree it can come off as maybe a little monochromatic? I thought the texture of the tie being wool would help. Thanks for the words though.. appreciate it!

I'd say texture (something along the lines of herringbone, like you used, or a grossa grenadine) would be important in offsetting the stripes. Burgundy or navy...but I feel like I'm just giving a standard answer by suggesting those colors. Probably burgundy would go better with the lavender (lilac?) of the shirt.

I'm not a fan of the Tie Bar ones (I have two, one which has been worn once and the other which has never seen the light of day). Guyliner looks pretty alright with them, but that's probably because there is almost always some other element of his outfits that demands the viewer's attention. I do like those with rougher colored edges, such as:

Very nice! Love that shade of blue. More info about those shoes, please? (But you should put in the laces correctly...)

Not sure why the break looks so huge on the left leg in the first pic - the right is more what I see in the mirror.

Tom really great pics before and extremely well fitted for a well built bloke like yourself. Seems to be a small but very well dressed contingent of Polish bespoke buying members that post from time to time.

Poasting for the friday challenge...

 

When I first got this jacket I was happy with the shoulder expression, but the more I look at it, the more I dislike the overall silhouette. Can't quite figure out what to do to make future commissions look better, perhaps it's just my body shape. I was thinking some more shoulder extension, leaner chest, less padding, fuller sleeves and more closed quarters, but I can't be sure about the results.

I agree the shoulders are extended enough, and I love the roping.  I don't think that's your problem.  The collar and lapel spread quite wide which narrows the appearance of the shoulder a touch, but again I rather like the style.  When I look at it, what draws me is that the quarters look very open, tapering away a bit too much, and also perhaps the skirts are just an inch or less too long. The overall effect is to make a triangle of trousers that's more prominent than your triangle of shirt, and therefore makes you look bottom-heavy. 

 

There's probably not much you can do about the cut of the quarters now, but I think three things might make you feel better about this pic next time you take it: first, take the jacket up just a tiny bit higher.  Second, don't wear patterned trousers with this one as you want to diminish the bottom half of the picture rather than accentuate it.  And third, I'm not sure what camera you have, but I know my little pocket one really exaggerates perspective.  So try taking the picture from a slightly higher vantage point, somewhere between the chest and the navel: I think this angle is too low, and also making you look bottom-heavy.

 

But you know what?  My first impression was "nice jacket", so sometimes maybe we just over-analyse...and I'd be interested to see what the more knowledgeable tailoring gurus have to say.
