Good god. Apparently Iphone shots while stuck in traffic attempt to focus behind you. I promise to do better.

just have to manipulate the focus. use the camera + app, its way better for fit pics. try looking in the rear view mirror to see the screen and where the focus is. regardless, that was a very good fit.

Summer is refusing to go away. No complaints here!

Nice, HF. Who makes that jacket? The patterns my MTM stuff uses seem to be almost identical, very English.

 

And I'm hoping the opposite - summer must go away! It's still too warm! :p

Suit Supply
Hickey Freeman
Epaulet x 2
Allen Edmonds

Something weird with the sleeves, but it only happens when the jacket is buttoned. I would like to shorten the pants a little more.

Suit and shirt are both MTM, the suit cloth is a navy birdseed from Vitale Barberis Canonico, don't know the number unfortunately, shoes are EG Malvern

Top looks a little too pale for my taste - would have liked to see a darker tie here to balance the trousers and to give the eyes something to fixate on

Thank you for your answer, I'd the same impression. How do you stand on fresco trousers combined with cotton or linen odd coats? I'm okay with the combination, but I feel like the opposite is not as successful.

I agree here too, with cotton or linen trousers the jacket need some kind of texture to balance the trousers, more texture than what fresco offers anyway

Pings and VE I didn't notice the worsted, but I agree that a rougher, textured worsted such as yours works.  cavalry twill or flannel or corduroy I like too

ME- you've gotta hell of a drop.  That DB fits u like a 2nd skin.

   .. Trying out another blue on grey combo-

Henry Carter plum grenadine (fina, i think) on
Kamakura OCBD in the Tokyo Slim fit.  Their Oxford cloth is their thickest, but  not as heavy as BB's standard Oxford  IMO.  Still good though, with a smoother finish, flatter and with less of a sheen than a Royal Oxford, and somehow it rolls better-  more elasticity in the cloth I guess.

Anyway this one's got more of a roll and more tie space than yesterday HF, prob because this one's a half size up.

BB blazer - plaid with a light blue deco Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Flannels with Vass Oxblood Oxfords Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Again, another lesson on "less is more". The rich solid burgundy tie and that perfectly shaped collar set the stage for the brilliant pattern of the coat. Really liking the Vass Oxfords. Not one detail too many; nothing is overlooked.

Today last post for some days. Tomorrow I start in a short vacation.

 

This wonderfull Oxxford clothes sports coat I get today from ebay.com. Fits very well, maybe the sleeves are 1-2 cm too long.

Hello All,

 

I'm a first time poster long time lurker. I commend all of you on your high sense of fashion and I thought it was about time I step my game up. 

 

I definitely want to go for the slimmer fits I've seen from most all of you and to give some background, I recently graduated from college where I played soccer and ran track (therefore I have huge quads and glutes) 

 

I'm 6'2" and weight about 212 lbs. 33-34" waist, 16.5" bicep circumference, with thigh size of 26-27" approx. Here is a picture in the one suit I have now since I've slimmed down from ~240lbs. Definitely want to get down to say 195-200 lbs if it means I'll be able to fit into slimmer suits.

 

Thanks for your help now here go the pictures....

 

 

Suit: Jos A Banks

Shirt: Jos A. Banks

Tie: Moore's

Shoes: Aston Grey

^^Welcome! not bad at all for a first post! a few things id fix though....
-trous are too long...have them taken up so they have just a slight break
-shirt sleeves too short...show some cuff!
-jacket looks too big from the back pic...a decent tailor could probably remedy the rumples
-white linen PS is always a good idea wink.gif

^^^^Welcome.

I can't see the details of your suit. Is it a solid navy? I don't think JAB gets much love here as the material and workmanship are not up to the standard generally posted in this thread.

From what I can see, your suit could stand some tailoring in the shoulder area in the rear and the pants are too long with way too much "break". The "Shows" look a little ruff for posting in this thread as well.

Shirt and tie don't seem bad at all. Keep lurkin' and learning. There are some seriously well dressed dudes in this crowd and you'll learn a lot.
