Let me rephrase. I hope I pop up on GDLs thread one day. I'm not one to maintain a thread. I just had an idea I thought was good, is all. Looks like it was, as GDLs is different but still similar, as you don't get to put your own picture up.

And as for too much blue...

This is also close to one of my last posts...and what I wanted to wear today smile.gif

Wow, 3 years? How is that even possible? As soon as you learn the basics you can start implementing them. It should take you a couple do months max before you can post a solid fit, and a couple more before you cab post a top notch one. I guess it does depend on how much money you have to your disposal. But then again, I've posted some of my best fits when I was still a student. Now it's just CBD stuff.

Yeah, 3 years is longer than most and a lot of it did have to do with funds...when you support a family more of your money goes to things other than new clothes (for yourself that is smile.gif )
If I had been a student perhaps it would have taken me less time.
But who knows, I wasn't the quickest SFer to catch on and I did take a few divergent style paths before finding my way back.

WAYWRN is not broken. No need to fix it.

Fair enough but I'm not sure i was seriously suggesting or expecting a major overhaul of the status quo in my post, I was more venting at stuff which has mildly bugged me for some time now, and rather than just moaning, throwing out a possible solution with some irony and little expectation it would be adopted.

I agree that variations in the pics thread have been attempted - the CBD and the Good Taste threads as examples (although I'm not even sure I took the time to learn the difference between the two!) and as you say they eventually seem to fade out.

I do stand by my contention that there are generally two types of regular posters - the Look-At-Me group and the Guide Me group, and the friction arises when someone inadvertently conflates the two!

Anyway I made my point and don't want to jack the thread any more for now. Normal service resumed!

This is the PS and on the suit you can see more from the outer orange part:

Ah that's looks much better...I guess the colour was a bit blown out in your photo making it look for burgundy and less burnt orange.

dude, theres people that have been here YEARS that still havent gotten a top notch fit.

however, ill also add that a true "top notch" fit takes a hell of a lot longer than a few months. Theres far too much to learn what really fits you. Drape, button stance, pitch, rise, etc...what works for some doesnt work for all. The only way someone is gonna be able to post a "top notch" fit in the first few months is by shelling out enough money to go bespoke and pay for someone else who understands proper fit to do it for them. Id even go as far as saying a truly "top notch" fit is near impossible with OTR. Unless of course your "top notch" is just another way of saying a decent fit....in that case...disregard my rant. But, I think that may be the problem nowadays on the forum. While theres some great stuff at times...theres very few if any fits that are 100%.

Sorry for the typos, typing on my phone while walking home from work. I think you ended up somewhere great, but it's too bad you don't wear suits anymore though. Why don't you try wearing a casual suit on a Saturday or Sunday some time, for a nice brunch or dinner?

I gave the example of me being a student as I had to live off about 300 euros a month, which isn't much. But yes, clothes are irrelevant compared to raising a family, which is a very big responsibility, and I respect you for that.

Oh I never judge a comment based on typos unless they're so bad I can't make heads or tails of it smile.gif
I think you make some valid points and I appreciate your honesty.

Also thank you for your assessment of where I've ended up and yes it is a shame that I don't have more opportunities to wear suits, formally or casually but if one arises and I have the moment's foresight to snap a pic I'll certainly post it here smile.gif

I think that it's awesome that you managed to stretch such a small stipend to include bettering your wardrobe and as my salary increased I did tuck a few bucks away here and there to build my own.

Thanks, being a family man is my biggest success to date right before buying that linen suit two years ago lol8[1].gif

Unless certain RTW suits fit you perfectly. I've been to a lot of tailors on savile row wearing a suitsupply suit, asking them what they would improve. The only thing most of them suggested is slightly wider lapels and trousers, but by less than half an inch or so. I can live with that. That's why I've decide not to go for MTM or bespoke, it's simply not worth the money at the moment. Perhaps later on, when my body changes, or when I earn so much money that I don't care. Whichever comes first wink.gif
