IS, looking good here! What are the cuffs on this suit? I ask because I am 5'9", should be getting in a boatload of trousers this week, and will be giving very specific instructions to my tailor. I am torn between going 2" and maybe something a little more modest like 1.5".

I have a love/hate relationship with the acquisition of things, generally. I like nice things in theory, but I don't find any entertainment value in simply owning them. I need to be able to enjoy the use of them regularly. So while I can see why a nice camera is theoretically a nice thing to have, I don't enjoy photography in itself, so I don't want to buy one. One reason (among many) that I like clothes is that I can get regular enjoyment from them because I can wear them regularly. Each wear amortises the cost, as it provides another quantum of entertainment value to offset against the initial cost. This is the same reason I tend to buy a top of the line car or laptop and then keep them until they break.

Okay I admit it, I can't stand looking at your grainy pictures anymore! There, I said it. Just kidding.

By no means, am I saying you should go get a nice camera. Heck don't even get anything just because I said so (I know you won't). 

But, I think it would be very nice to see your looks in a better picture quality. That's all I am saying and nothing more. 

You put together a great look and your phone camera is the worst thing about it. That's just my two cents.

 

For me, I had to get a new phone because my old phone was dying and even though it is only 8MP or 10MP (don't know), it allows others to view my pictures better and provide better feedbacks. I need feedbacks. You don't.

Wait for summer, improved light gives improved HF-resolution.

Thanks B and others. The fabric is a product of the genius that is T4phage: two tones of unbleached, undyed wool, woven by Breanish.

And here in boston, I'm appreciative that they actually have to put some thought into what they wear to look good instead of wearing tank tops and booty shorts all the time.


I need to move to nyc.

Stitchy, that's a winner. And don't think we don't notice that hank all up in your pocket.

My tie is...

Let me tell you how technologically behind the times I am: my phone is 7+ years old, so its camera remains beyond terrible. I don't know exactly, but it's probably something like 2 or 3 megapixels! Hence my still owning a separate P&S camera. Which is even older than the phone, by the way!

I generally keep things until they break rather than upgrading constantly, so tend to have much older tech than most people. Hell, I only got a new laptop a year or two ago because the old one finally died after about 8 years faithful service. I'll keep the current one until it dies too. Another example: I replaced my 10 year old car last month because it needed an engine stripdown to fix a problem, and it wasn't worth doing that. It doesn't bother me to have outdated stuff as long as it still does what I want it to. When I do get round to getting something new, I tend to buy something nice. It's just that I don't buy it unless what it's replacing is beyond redemption.

Having said all that, I think even my old P&S is better than using a modern phone camera for this kind of snap, if only because it can sit somewhere stable. If there is decent lighting, it takes decent photos; I just don't get good light in that room from about late September until about March, and sadly there's nowhere else in the house with a ledge the right kind of distance to take a full-length pic.

My cell (a stupid phone) is about the same age. And I still have a non-flat TV (tube TV?). How about that?

thanks, guys!!! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

luv2breformed, these cuffs are 1.75 inches. my fave hight for my build. im 5'10, and blessed with a generous gut and thighs.

SB, i would hope you all notice the hank. its from kamakura, and i love it. its cotton, but its kind of creamy in texture and its awesome. and only 10 bucks!

kulata - suit is sartoria formosa from nomanwalksalone.com

HF, i use my iphone 5 for all my pics and i adjust the color when needed in photobucket. i personally do not feel any great need to invest in a fancy camera solely for pit pics. also, getting pics from my phone to my comp with the photobucket app is so easy.

Catching up on this thread so I don't know if this has been addressed, but you do realize you've got a Tom Ford suit in your profile pic right?
