Liking that suit (?source) & overall outfit. I think I'd prefer it as a 2pc, as the waistcoat appears to button quite high on you. Personal preference, though.

Another nice suit. The overall look is a bit monochrome, what with that shirt/tie combo, but I guess with that suit you have to play it cautiously at first.

 

 

 

No major work to do today, so casual:

The 2" cuff by IanGP

 

 

 

Hmmm, that looks a bit out of proportion to me. I think 2" cuffs look better on wider leg openings... I love the (lack of) break in those trousers though.

Cuffs predate #menswear, Clag.

 

Yes they do, and I should have cuffed these!  I think I might have pulled my trousers up a bit high for the shoe shot; but you're right it looks that way in the pics.  This is one of four suits from the same local tailor, whom I no longer use.  Actually I'm pretty broke right now, but when I do get to go back to the tailor, it isn't that one!  There's just too much disconnect between the fitting and the making, that I won't go into.  Anyway, I'm on a major health kick this summer and intend to need a lot of new clothes in a few months!  But back to the point: I'd not really thought about the breast pocket thing.  The position is a bit odd, even for a fatty like me.  That too, will change - thank you.

All of our opinions are equally invalid, so yours is as welcome as any! :)

Excellent biz caz look here CD. I like how your PS reflects your strides, and this is yet more evidence in the case which is building to prove that the no navy strides 'rule' is a complete load of bollocks. Well done sir!

Yea cuff looks a bit tall for that leg opening but if he's got long legs I guess it probably looks fine. smile.gif

to me cuff proportions rely more on height than leg opening. I have a few trous with 2" cuffs that I think work fine ... but again im 6'3

Probably half of the vintage ('50s-'70s) trad suits I find in thrifts have 1.75"-2" cuffs.
