The button stance is rather low already, much lower than other jackets I have, and both my tailor and I decided to make this jacket shorter by exactly half an inch compared to the previous one... maybe a robopose with arms down would help to better judge proportions smile.gif

 

Button stance is fine/good. But the space between the top button and the bottom button seems a bit squeezed (prob. due to a combination of lowering the button stance and shortening the jacket length). For my eye, I'd restore the prior length, but keep the new top button position, and lower the bottom button by the same amount as the restored jacket length. But as long as you're happy with the new length, all's cool! :cool:

Yeah the previous jacket did look a bit long, maybe because it had dropped fronts (which it turns out I didn't need) in addition to the extra length. Perhaps raising the stance by 1 cm, then lowering the bottom button by another centimeter would be a good compromise.

Holdfast, that tie is brilliant!

Please ignore the absolutely horrendous green wall color; this is my home office/inventory storage. We haven't gotten around to repainting.

First, the suit is not the best fitting suit I have as it is pre-SF…

Thanks for the comments, I tried a bit harder with my knot…not as sloppy this time.

And, finally, the shoes are not near as rough as they look…

love that suit, GMM.
post #63703 of 78724

Cool suit, GMMcL.

 

And thanks all for the dictionary-worth of adjectives re: the Pucci tie!!

First I make the same pose as for the first picture. When I stand straight I am looking every time a little bit like a robot. So I tried it with one leg a little bit cocked.
