Those lapels are comically large for your slim frame.
Shirt collar as it relates to the jacket is really jarring. Terrible fit.

Lapel width is fine, just unfortunately accentuated by the low gorge.

I like wide lapels, though I agree the gorge here isn't great. I also think the relationship between the collar of the jacket and the lapel isn't quite right -- it's like the notch is a funny shape.

 

The shirt collar is pretty lame on its own (the points are too short to roll properly), but what about the jacket makes it worse? Is it the distance between the points and the jacket, or something else?

Buttons, certainly, make a huge difference. It was not until about a year ago--when I went through a mtm blazer experience-- did I learn/realize the importance of having the right kind of button on a coat. Up to that time, buttons were completely off my radar. When the tailor brought out several trays of buttons from which to choose, I was amazed to see how the various colors and hues changed, completely, the look of a plain navy coat. I liked every one of them. Finally, I had to rely on the tailor's good eye and experience to make the selection. Since then, I have been much more aware and appreciative of the lowly button. It is not so "lowly".

YRR, that check is toward the suitier end of the spectrum. Those in the Foo camp would tell you unequivocally that it does not work as an odd jacket. For me, it would depend on the details.

That sounds about right. The detailing alone is, generally, too suit-like for me -- no swelled edges, normal pockets. I think I've been looking at the pattern from too close. As soon as I saw the pictures, I was pretty sure that it wouldn't fly.

 

I have the trousers, but they need a touch of reweaving and they're even more dated than the coat (they taper, but in the wrong direction). Maybe I'll make them a project.

 

EDIT: What are arts and crafts like at Foo camp? Do you think they're hiring counselors?

I'll make the thread sometime late on Tuesday, but the new challenge for next Friday:

 

Friday Challenge: SF Family Values

 

The basic premise: you need to post a fit with at least two pieces from different brands/sellers considered a part of the SF Family. This could be affiliate vendors or active members with their own brands/products.

 

Who qualifies: Off the top of my head, Panta, Sam Hober, Post-Imperial, and Wolf vs Goat are clearly members of the SF Family even if they aren't AV's. All affiliate vendor brands are allowed. In addition, clothing bought through resellers (like Malford of London, Exquisite Trimmings, NMWA) is also allowed. Luxeswap is a tricky case. I'm disallowing anything bought through Luxeswap's auctions (sorry Spoo), but allowing anything that Luxeswap carried like a regular reseller (the belts, or the Drakes for Luxeswap that I just noticed Stitchy has).

 

Additional Rules:

* to reward difficulty, every additional item--again from different Family Members--past two grants a two vote bonus. So if you manage to wear the wears of five different Family Members, that's an additional 6 votes

 

* Family Members are strongly encourage to participate. They just can't rep themselves.

 

* I reserve the right to make additional rules before the first entry is submitted.

Sorry about the poor quality, my vest has a black watch pattern. Had a navy jacket but it got too warm. Doesn't he look awesome?

Very Cool! You look great together!

I've heard it's a tough gig.  The fit battles with the FNB crew can be brutal.

The pocket square adds a nice splash of color.
Is this suit a SS Lazio?

Ah! I thought so! I just purchased this same suit. It is my first Lazio; luckily, it is a perfect fit for me. It is a lovely suit.
