Thanks YRR92, is there a reason why club collars are more suitable for SB suits, or is it just personal preference?

X- post from the Linen trouser challenge - we need more participants, I'm extending the deadline!


NSM linen trousers, Simonet Goddard chambray shirt and detached collar by Sean O'Flynn, Hermes tie and nubucks by John Lobb, St. James's

While I fully subscribe to the charm of a wrinkled coat, the same does not go for trousers. I dislike the unbecoming way they wrinkle and thus subscribe to the old adage of getting two pairs made and change at midday.

PS And yes I'm aware of the tie, tied too long:)

Cheers, it's so hard to capture the color of this suit. I should really get a camera, but I can't justify buying one just for taking outfit pictures.

Date night with the lady. FU trousers included. Hopefully not all night though.

Love the colour of the suit and the colour combinations. Just a question though: in the 2nd pic, is it just the way your arms are held or are the sleeves of the suit just a tad short?

My opinion? That ^^^ is not good. Small shirt pattern + small tie pattern = awkward looking. PS melts into the jacket and offers nothing interesting. Jacket is too short in all respects. Also, there is something weird going on with the shoulders. Maybe just the sleeves need to be rotated. The tie knot also makes me want to cry. In fact I'm going to start crying right now.

Thanks. I guess the sleeves "rolled up" a little bit while taking the second picture; the first one is a more accurate reflection of the real length.

In the first picture, the sleeves are still short by most standards.  I'd say the sleeves should be about an inch longer.  In fact, if this is off the rack, I'd recommend going up a size.  The chest appears to be buckling at the lapels and there appears to be a bit of collar gap.  Nothing huge, but I think a slightly bigger jacket would help.

Not one to usually critique in here, but there's um, how do I put this, some very questionable combos over the last few pages. YR, that pin..... CM, those trousers,... MF, not sure about yours bit too much going on I think (monks, DB, club collar, PS etc etc) it needs simplifying a bit and Butler (surprisingly) the belt and tie, not up to your usual very high standards I'm afraid. Also don't think the lighter linen trousers work with the mid blue shirt, should be lighter blue.

Clapey nice swing.
