It was an ebay thrift that cost me fairly little, Hackett linen and cotton I believe. Most likely I wont wear it, the shoulders present an obstacle in that there will be too much alteration needed together with sleeves & body.

 

I purchased 2 SC's on the bay for quite little. This one and one SR pane/check in wool, they were both advertised as 42R but the SR one fits very much better in all aspects mentioned as flawed in the fit I posted. I've learned a lesson though, keep to your exact measurements as I did on the SR rather than your "size" -- what I relied on for the Hackett. Progress, gentlemen.


 I don't understand why people buy jackets/suits over the internet because you can't try the stuff on. I go to stores and try jackets on and even though they're the same size they all fit differently. Some of them fit better than others. I only buy them if they're close and I think my tailor can alter them.

after years of buying, you (me) get a feel for what brands work for you. I have no issue buying stuff online because i know how most makers fit me. this was after a lot of buying and returning/reselling though.

You two need to decide who gets to use that avatar, or at least make them easily distinguishable.

You're right, we have a Shibumeeting (great word, huh?) scheduled for today, we'll figure something out. Pistols at dawn or so...

That tie is amazing.  It's one of my favorite patterns.  The green, red and yellow are so vibrant.

My first post in here. No real means by which to take a good fit pic. Just components.


Details:
Linen/wool tan SC from Samuelsohn
Tie from Kent Wang
BB shirt
BB navy linen pants
Timex Weekender watch on strap from the knottery (I'm big-timing it today!)
Santoni Knox shoes
Belt - don't know the maker - it's just my favorite belt

Edit: The editor won't let me add more than 2 pics per post from my iPhone. And its acting up when I tried doing a second post (terrible reception in the office). Plus, the one on my work computer doesn't give me the option to upload pics (not sure why). So I guess I'm stuck with those two pics today. Sorry for the crappy iPhone pic quality

BTW, I'm like you, I like pick stitching too (provided it's done tastefully). My favourite suit has tons of it and I love it:

Edit: forgot to say: I like it because it makes a suit look less 'stiff'

it is! id rather not say exactly, but all their pricing is on the website, similar to KW i believe.
