Crusty, your clothes always fit you really well. You must have a great tailor.

Thank you. I do have a good alterations tailor near my office, and posting regularly in these fora always means that I'll be called out if my tailoring is less than stellar, hence my near-continuous employment of said alterations tailor.
I am also lucky to be a very average size - a lot of things fit me well off the rack.post #62658 of 7872410/21/13 at 4:56ampost #62659 of 7872410/21/13 at 5:30ampost #62660 of 7872410/21/13 at 5:52ampost #62661 of 7872410/21/13 at 6:21amQuote:Originally Posted by Caustic Man
Universal is a funny term. Is it universally unliked? No. And a thinner lapel might just be more proportionate on you. What I think gets a lot of hate from people around here, including me, is the super skinny "fashion" lapels. I can't say what would look proportional on you, but I'd rather be on the wide side, than the skinny side when it comes to peak lapels especially.
Thanks, I will be alert, and post pictures before a major purchase.
Jpost #62662 of 7872410/21/13 at 6:45amUC - I think you deserve a round of applause for the effect that you've had on the SF aesthetic overall. While there may be some motion both ways, you are a prime example that simple perseverance is necessary to move past the vitriol that often permeates the forum.post #62663 of 7872410/21/13 at 6:49amQuote:

Not a fan of the jacket, but it would have made a crazy cool suit!
Been away for a few days but back now. One fit from just before going, and the more casual one is from today:post #62668 of 7872410/21/13 at 7:46amQuote:
Looking at the full-length picture, I'd tend to agree, though I'll check it IRL before sending the jacket off to my tailor.
Thank you, Pingson!Quote:
The vitriol with which I agreed I took to heart, and made changes to my attire - that with which I disagreed (or was merely disagreeable) I learned to ignore. Had I not, I would not have had the pleasure of meeting some of the posters, including yourself. As for changing the Gemeinschaft around these parts, I couldn't possibly comment - I am only conscious of the changes that the general taste of SF has had on me - not so much whatever effect I might have had on the consensus around here.Quote:
I hope that 4th time is the charm.Quote:

Thank you Broness.
Certainly time for some different ones...they're a bit of an all-year staple for me because it's always warm or hot. But even after recent alteration, that batch of three linen suits and my favourite non linen (120s pick-a-pick), are just too big - the open jacket and hand in pocket are to hide the great sagging expanse where my bigger belly used to be! Anyway, they've been beaten to death for quite a while and the trousers are showing their age too. Time for some tailoring. I'm being a little cautious though, partly because I'm not rich enough, but partly also because even with 55lbs down, I know I want another 20-30 before I'm done. A few new suits are essential, but not too many just yet.
So, I'm just waiting for a jacket to be finished, and have four suit lengths waiting to cut: two flannel, and two linen - but better quality I think. There's also a monster tweed at the back of the queue for winter travel, not sure if I'll bother yet. A couple of lighter year-round worsteds will follow, I promise. ;)
