That's what I was pointing out.

Not one person has anything positive to say about the suit, and for good reason. And in the past I have been highly-complimentary to Kai for fits that stirred some controversy.

Isn't it interesting how Kai thanked me for my post yet others seems to be so offended? People who have been on this board for a while know that I generally endeavor to be constructive, and I thought I framed my comments as nicely as possible. Do you know how many times people have played "Pile-up on the Newbie" on this board over the years? Has anyone ever seen me do it? There have been many occasions where a new guy posts for the first time in a poorly-fitting Mens Wearhouse nightmare and the first posts they see are pretty much "your suit sucks" and I have been among the few who have tried to steer them in the right direction and welcomed them to the board.

You're getting too hung up on this personally. My point wasn't to ostracize you. Highlighting your post was used to point out an example as recent as a few posts after mine where not a whole lot of useful feedback was given. I'm not trying to say everyone everywhere should be constantly nitpicking or making suggestions, nor is there anything wrong with praise for a job well done, but there's room for improvement most of the time and very few voices offering it.

Talking about this thread, in particular. The one that you are complaining in.

 

It's full of a bunch of circle jerks, a bunch of needless nit-picking, and one guy that complains about the circle jerking and nit-picking.

There's room between circle jerking and needless nitpicking. Can we please please keep doing it?



Kai, you knowz somebody's going to say your pants are on the full break side there right? (or were they just slumped down?)

Yup. If I was being picky I'd suggest chocolate brown (or even darker green) cords to enhance the contrast between jacket & trousers, but the fit of everything is really nice (jacket not pulling like one or two of his other jackets) and the existing palette is good too.

My first thought was "Is this guy wearing chain armour under his shirt?", for serious. At a second glance I saw that it was an ascot though. Great fit on the suit btw.

What is the finish on the tie?  Is it a weave?  I like the tie texture vs suit window pane (?) pattern contrast.  I think it qualifies as "in good taste."

Welcome back and hope to see some more entries on your blog - its got a great tone and has been very helpful.

Lol that's funny. I've never worn an Ascot before so I probably haven't got it quite right shog[1].gif

 

This is my first bespoke suit also so that was an interesting process. It's possibly my last as it took me a long time to save for this one. It's something that I've always wanted to do.
