and to show the impact of a white shirt square...heres the sme jacket/tie with a light blue shirt and different Cappelli square Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Diaz gotta agree - way below yr usual stellar fits. The silhouette is more morning-dress-at-Royal-Ascot than 2013 Madrid. The roped and pagoda'd shoulder is mannered; the baggy-legged plaid could be from my grandfather's closet; and worse still the black oxfords and white shirt shouldn't be in the same room with that beautiful summery Drakes? square.
Ouch, that hurts about the trousers! I actually love how they fit - they are not so baggy really, my legs are just that thick. Or are you just talking about the fact they are plaid trousers?
Black oxfords and white shirt with this are part of this friday's WAYWRN challenge - I would not wear such a combo otherwise
Barroom...me likey...small photo but very nice fit. Great work "reducing" (as Betty Draper would call it)...I am a former 52 trying to get to a 46...but that is for another thread ; ). Only point I would make is that some fun socks would really make this fit supreme. maybe you are in a too conservative workplace for that, or maybe not your personal style...but a light blue, or dark red pattered socks might really make a nice splash
If I crop the image and leave only the top part, the shape and location of the armscye still bothers me. I don't know how to explain it, that's the problem. Perhaps I could say it looks too "Richard Anderson", which is a type of cut I hate with a passion.
The way too open quarters are not just the result of being open per-se, but also of a long front balance (which also causes the X at the buttoning point). But yes, future commissions, whoever makes them, will have that fixed.
Anyways, these MTM jackets, while not overly expensive, are probably a waste of money - they cost more than RTW and I'm still not happy. Might just get a couple decent fitting RTW jackets so I have something to wear this summer (my usual RTW brand is just €200 per jacket), then start saving for Steed or NSM. I'll be happier in the long run, and for some reason I keep coming to the same conclusion.
