Hand-polished shoes are really something.  I've almost completely stopped doing it with my arse now.

 

(Great fit btw, and where are the shoes from?  I like them.)

Holland & Sherry Summer-weight three-piece suit

The Armoury Lapel Pin in Rose Gold

Sam Hober Macclesfield tie

Turnbull & Asser pocket square

Socks by Gammarelli

Hand-polished shoes


I started to sweat for you, until I saw the suit was a Summer-weight. I think the fit calls for a full-body shot.

Thanks Mimo. Yes, hand polishing shoes is time consuming, though I find it therapeutic at times -- when I'm trying to do smth mindless.

Tbh -- if you're in an air-conditioned area all day, or even stroll briefly outside in the heat, one can get by relatively comfortably in a summer weight suit paired with lightweight voile shirting which was what I was wearing.

These below are some fit pictures I have. The trousers were already spot on so I didn't bother to try them. Hope they help:





And, a clearer shot:

I've heard of ways to get those pictures from your camera directly into a computer, so you don't have to take pics of the screen pics of your camera. Really convenient.

Unfortunately, the camera isn't mine, but I hear you.

Definitely not an everyday look for me... but for a change, once in a while in summer, I actually like it. You might be interested in the side/side comparison with the new SS Napoli model that I got in the same size (which has shoulder padding/extension and is a bit fuller across the chest). That suit looks much more like my usual self, but it measures very similarly across the shoulder, seam-seam.

I peeped your post in the SS thread, and I definitely prefer the length on the suit jacket. Did yours come with functional buttonholes on the sleeves? I really don't understand this trend in RTW...

Well, I think your usual stuff is roomy, but not "too big", which is something I prefer myself - so I'm kinda biased. I think shortness of the jacket is what is contributing most to my thoughts of it being a bit small. Short jackets always look like you borrowed someone else's to me. Yours doesn't really look overly tight, and the lapels lay flat, so it might just be that it's a leaner cut than I've been accustoming myself to.

^^ Everything he said. Sr Diaz speak truth.

 

I think there's a trend of too-small clothing, even within the hallowed confines of this thread now and then (naming no names).  HF is an exception, so seeing a shorter, closer-fitting jacket does look a bit unusual.  Half an inch longer and it would barely register, though.

Yes, but they do actually have a reasonable bit of space for shortening, and I was lucky with the lengths anyway. In principle, I agree with your disapproval of the trend.

Yup, it fits... just a lot leaner & a bit shorter than usual for me. I'll have to be a bit careful to wear it with similarly casual looks. It's a bit less suitable for smarter looks like yesterday's but still within an acceptable margin, I feel.

Got to shake people up occasionally. laugh.gif

My casual sunday.

 

post #53460 of 78724

This is from Saturday.  A few of my favorite things.  Black watch tie and belt (both cotton).  Fun shirt.  Seeruscker pocket square.  Argyll and Sutherland Highlander strap.  Jeans (pleats hiding behind the jacket).  Bit loafers.  No socks.
