It's been pretty stable over the past 3+ years IIRC. Before that, yes, there was some minor incremental loss per year. Nothing major, but it added up to about 15lbs over the course of my being on SF. The major loss occured considerably prior to my joining SF, though of course wardrobe updates always lag the weight loss. What I would say is that with it being virtually stable since about 2009/2010, my wardrobe has now - finally - almost completely caught up. What can I say, I'm a slow buyer...

Honestly, there are enough idiosyncrasies in SS fit that the measurements on the site aren't enough to judge it accurately. Trying them on is the best option. Provided you don't find the returns process annoying, order a few sizes & styles at the same time and return the ones that you don't like.

It's a Brooks Brothers that I bought about 10 years ago.

Suit fits very well, and I love the shirt.  One of the most versatile and elegant shirts is a fine pale blue stripe that's regularly spaced (the blue and white stripes are the same width).  The higher collar band, longer collar points, and width of the spread look sophisticated too.  I'm a bit on the fence with the tie -- I think it looks very nice, but I tend to associate green with country clothes, and a grey worsted suit with city clothes.  Today the distinction is less about where to wear the clothes (a tweed jacket can look quite elegant in the city), than it is about combinations.  For the same reason, I would hesitate to wear a formal grey wedding tie or navy pindot with a green tweed jacket.

EDIT: The full-length shows what I consider to be a knock on narrower trousers, that the drape is much less forgiving of less-than-perfect positioning of the cuff on the shoe. Of course, this is really only much of an issue while roboposin' for you people...

Well, you look good, buddy. Keep it up.

That's gold stuff, Butchy

Ever thought about opening the quarters a bit on that jacket?

Yes - quarters need opening to balance the opening roll above the buttoning point.
Tie is lost against shirt.
Otherwise good looking pic and the slimmer tailoring is much more flattering than your usual tube cuts.

This will be my first post in this thread. Figured I'd give it a shot.

 He looks the same in all the pics I've seen. Maybe i didn't go back far enough though.

That sportscoat looks perfect.  RLPL?  Ideal match with the cream trousers (PRL?) and brown belt with engine tuned buckle.

^ that is great. Love the tie reddevil

post #57598 of 78717

What makes it for me is that the ivory or cream colored trousers are wool, from what I can see.  When people wear a light colored trouser, it's usually white cotton khaki or white denim.  The ivory trousers in wool gabardine or flannel drape better and look elegant, even glamorous in a 1920s way.

You know, there was a cashmere Belvest SC on B&S about a month ago that was exactly the same color and style as HC's. If I remember correctly it was for sale for quite some time and only sold for around 140 in the end. I was contemplating getting the jacket, but it didn't seem versatile enough for me at that time. It seems strange that the seller had such a hard time selling it while everyone here is absolutely raving about it.

A little off topic, B&S is the Marketplace in here? I hate searching in the forum Marketplace. It's really boring, scrolling and scrolling and more scrolling. Although I bought one SC in there very nice and at a very nice price.
