Another nice pic Pingson. I like the slightly off beat colour of your trousers there, not sure what that's called but a nice change from more traditional gray, charcoal, stone, putty etc. and pairs well with the jacket.

I am aware that I am going against the trend towards high buttoning points, but that one deserves some comment, the lower button is way above the hip pockets line. A more balanced buttoning (look, I am advocating for a low) will be more flattering and more comfortable. Would also play with the lapels shape and with the sleeve length.

 

I agree, actually.  The front of this suit needed lifting up a bit after being cut too long (I'm not as fat as I used to be), and the mark for the button seems to have gone with it.  It's funny, I don't know why I didn't notice wearing it, but sometimes it takes a pic on SF to get a proper perspective.  I'm not unhappy with it, and rather than modern it looks rather old-fashioned and stuffy to me, in a way that I rather like given the rest of the style.  But I immediately went back to the tailor last night to ensure a lower button stance on the next two, lighter weight suits.  You're right about the sleeves too, just a touch too long.  As for the lapels, well, you be you and I'll be me. :)  I got my hair cut last night too.  Just in case it was worrying anyone.

 

Seriously, thanks for the input - specific suggestions like that are always helpful, even if sometimes we disagree.  Feedback that makes us question assumptions is a real bonus of SF sharing.

 

P.S.  I've never had twenty thumbs.  I got nineteen once, but I'd be far too ashamed to ask.  However, when I get those next two suits, I'll be hoping for some heavily-devalued thumb love.

I think the colour was called "corn"...

A new suit - not exactly thrifted but I did get it for an outrageous price (the shop is going out of business).

 

I had it tailored of course but I fear the jacket was taken in a bit too much, now that I am wearing it away from the store. The lapels are bowing slightly so I might take it to a (better) tailor and get it let out a bit. Also the sleeves are longer than I prefer. But overall, I'm happy with it - it is very similar to the Suit Supply 'Lazio' model I had my eye on for a while.

I do hate to disappoint you, but I failed to attend the Whitney Biennial last night, due to the fact that a). the temperatures were below freezing, and b). the line to enter stretched from the museum entrance on Madison between 74th and 75th Sts., up Madison Ave, across 75th St. to Park Ave., down Park Ave. to 74th St., and a bit of it on 74th between Park and Madison. The hipsters obviously have more resistance to cold than I do.

Digging into the archive of suits, I've dug out something not worn for a while. Hope that it meets with some level of approval.

Which definition of funky did you have in mind; sneaky2.gif

4. Slang
a. Characterized by originality and modishness; unconventional
b. Outlandishly vulgar or eccentric in a humorous or tongue-in-cheek manner


PS is wool/silk from Drake's a few years back (got it from our own Malford) and the moleskin trousers are the single pleated (gasp!) version from Pakeman Catto & Carter....


Nice tie BTW - really envious of that one I am.... nod[1].gif
