I'd put Rudals at 5'11. Like all Asian men, he thinks height is really important and thus is trying to tack on some centimeters.


Bahaha, I forgot that 5.83 is, you know feet exactly. Touche, good sir. Though you are shorting yourself about 7 hundreths of another inch. Why not pull a Rudals and round up? :P

Howdy, gents. Sorry for the photo malfunction yesterday.

Here's today. I'm just under 6', btw.

Sorry - all I remembered was that you were REALLY tall - NBA player tall.

For the record, I had been running around most of my adult life convinced that I was 5' 10" (177.8), but it seems with age that I'm only 5' 9" (175.25). Feh.

Really? I would have guessed you're my height (5'8").

Are you wearing a suit with those monks? I was interested in getting a pair of monks but was told that it is not as formal as oxfords.

Right on! I don't want to derail the thread but in case it does, we can take it to PM's.

For shoes, it's all online between Nick @ Bespoke England and Steve with GFW. Luxeswap of course :nod: and I use Fields for the super crazy alterations like changing the jacket balance, lowering collars, etc. *he has 2 of my Sartorio SC's right now

I do have an alternative tailor in Fairfax. He does complicated alterations as well and he's made me a tux but for half of what Fields charges. I'll post fitpics of the tux later on.

I like it that you posted something challenging. It's good to think about and learn from. Do try it with a brown with a solid shirt and report back. I'm feeling that the combo might work nicely (cf. Stitch's panta DB with reddish tie from the last FC).

Tis a suit o wedded one Doodals, yes and with dub monks

on any formality scale I may agree with that sentiment though I believe it worked for a Club meeting and they are pretty sleek looking

The watch is not really a suit watch for me so you may put that on the same formality scale...

Interesting you point it out as I considered EG black dub monks and JL Towcester, plumped for them YMMV

I have those other dub monks worn this morning over on 'Rock your socks, pants, shoes' threak where levels of formality have been mooted too. Interesting stuff.

@Cotton Dockers


A good way to do gray jackets, namely with white or off white/cream trousers.

It would have been great in a deep purple too, though only if you already have a few navy SCs.


I want a jacket like in your last fit, navy in a 38R, subtle overcheck (brown, burgundy)...

@cleav - excellent all round, but I am especially envious of the tie.
