Great fit. Like I said, almost all blue can be done tastefully. I know it can, I've seen it!
Yeah 8 months. It's one of those things where, once I know I dressed bad, I couldn't do it again. So I started ordering everything as soon as I can. Of course I made some mistakes, about 5 shirts and 5 ties I don't like to wear too often. But the ties found new homes through Spoo.
I don't have enough to post great daily fits (eg: 3 MTOs still on the way, and maybe 2 other shoes before I can call my shoe collection well rounded) but I have enough to post one or two here and there.
And thanks Panda. I think all you veteran SF's need to bring back the pre-2010 crew. That's what I look at and learn from, or at least I try. Not saying there's not some fits I learned from recently here.
I wish I still had pics from my first posts
I just kept posting and taking notes until I saved enough to buy better fitting clothes but it still took me a long time. As for ties by the time I stopped posting two years ago I had nearly 100 and out of those I think I kept 10 or 15, the rest will be donated to the Rodeo Clown Tie Donation Fund.
The suit I'm wearing in that pic was one of my last two full suits I bought before I changed jobs where I didn't have to wear full suits anymore. It's a Ben Sherman that I had tailored. The Linen suit from a few pages back was my last suit I bought. I don't recall the maker but I know it's not anyone of any import but again I had it tailored to fit as well.
Yeah there are a lot of pre-2010 SFers I'd love to see post again but as you said there is still quite a bit of good fits posted here now, which really makes me wish I still wore suits on a daily basis.
