It's a decent look Phil but the lapel critique is valid. Also I like the colour of your shoes but above the ankle you are very business formal and IMO a laced shoe in the same colour would have worked better.
It's my "playful" part of my outfit.................
The intention here is plain old boring business presentation look. I want to look polished and professional - but take a background to the presentation.
Most of my current clients are in the middle east - the climate is VERY hot and often very humid. So this suit is a very lightweight high twist 160 yarn fabric. So thin it's practically transparent. Drapes beautifully - but also shows every little thing.
Musta made the tailor crazy.
Suit - Canali OTR
Shirt - Truzzi
Tie - Zegna
Belt - Ferragamo
Shoes - Bally (They are very dark chocolate.)
Tailoring - Mario Bosco Atlanta
(Did I mention my clients are total Euro label whores????? )
Go crazy on me guys - quite perfection is my goal.

There is something wrong with that suit. The front-back balance is off (please, correct me if I'm wrong, I'm not a tailor) and that causes the front bottom parts of the jacket to overlap as well as the back of the jacket to hang lower than the front. There's not much that can be done about it without severe alterations and shortening the jacket. I wouldn't keep this suit if I could return it, but if I were stuck with it, I'd probably ask my tailor to re-cut the bottom front panels to at least open up a little more. Also, shorten the trousers. Otherwise, everything looks good!
If you want more information, find a post I made about my first MTM suit not so long ago. It had the same problem, but a lot more severe.
I believe that is a Borrelli Sorrento, 70% cashmere, 30% silk.
Thank you kindly, Spoo.

I like it because of the colour, it's very sprezz indeed, together with the fit.

But the real deal is the fabulous fit, particularly the beautifully made natural shape of the shoulders on the jacket.
Add in the perfection of proportion between all the elements (tie, collar, lapel), sunglasses that perfectly fit the face, the sharp haircut, as well as the confidence in his posture.
When it all comes together like this the look becomes greater than the sum of it's parts.
(Whether or not you like the color - the REAL deal is the absolute confidence which is excuded by the wearer. Confidence bolstered from his knowledge in the perfection of his ensemble.)

I dunno, dude... A contrast-collar french-cuff shirt and fedora, yet the shirt is unbuttoned. That just doesn't look right. Also, what's up with the buttons being right at the end of the suit sleeves? Overall, a rare miss from you in my book.
