HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 3608  

post #54106 of 78722

My dear Sr Diaz: not at all, really, although shape-wise they are not ideal yet - that tailor is never to be seen again (by me, I mean, I haven't actually murdered him), and I'm engaged in a crash health kick this summer so they will gradually be getting looser around the chest and waist! (Well, that's the idea...)  I'd never noticed that about the arms, perhaps because it's a soft linen and wears very easy.  I see what you mean.  Until I can go order another batch of suits from my new tailor, I'll just put it down to manly physique. lol8[1].gif

 

Good spot on the CT shirt.  The collars do vary between styles; I bought a batch of them a few months ago for under 20 Euros a piece.  I find them quite comfortable, but some of the collars are definitely just a few millimetres shorter than I'd like - this is one of them.

 

Thanks for your thoughtful input.  You are a good man.

Nice SC. When I saw this pic in the Mini Gallery that shows at the right of the page I thought it was a fit of Mr. Diaz. smile.gif

Getting my summer stuff back from the tailor at last. The MTMJTATIB (MTM Jacket That Almost Turned Into Bespoke™) should be ready soon too...

 

 

(yeah, I was feeling matchy today. New Rubinacci knit tie via Shaya @ Exquisite Trimmings and I don't care how much SF may hate it -  I love it smile.gif)

HKflaneur - while i think butler is technically correct about the belt showing, over all i think it looks quite nice. try without the vest, and buttoning the jacket, that would be helpful to see.

Henry Carter & ocbd (1st fit) putting in some great looks. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

HKflaneur: on my screen that looks like a bright electric blue suit. I hope you have the commensurately edgy personality/lifestyle to pull it off!

 

 

With somewhat curved/bellied outer lapel edges, they need to fit right across the chest, especially with a DB style. This looks too narrow across the chest, causing the inner edge of the lapel to bow, which in concert with the deliberately curved outer edge, creates the optical illusion of the cloth being stretched across the chest. It's less pronounced in the 3/4 length shot than the close-up, but still present to some degree IMO. Shame, because otherwise, it looks very nice on you. Still looks good, but that detail would bug me. Mind you, it sometimes happens to me simply through carrying too much crap in my pockets, so...

Mark the date in your diaries; one of the rare occasions you'll see me wearing non-black shoes with a navy suit:

Love the navy SC with the crisp white shirt and Merican bow. Nice.

Getting slightly less UCBD as each day passes. The less sleep I get, the less fucks I give about being conservative.
