Didn't you buy a very similar one? Same cut, slightly different fabric?
Thanks for the thumbs yesterday, gents! Today's fit inspired by @Sotiris
Due to the wonderful traffic in Jakarta, I had to get up so early this morning that I was forced to use artificial light, unfortunately.
Now you can see what a mess my wife's painting room really is.

(I'm aware that the jacket is too long, but I'm too scared for a disaster to have that altered. Do any of you gents have had success with such an alteration?)
Great combination, compliments.

Great analysis GMMcL. I feel a similar frustration - the occasional high-thumbs fit notwithstanding, mostly I seem to post failures. Sometimes I go back to look at those rigs, and can see immediately what was wrong. Other times I'm left scratching my head, wondering why a fit I remain proud of was so roundly ignored - or worse, reviled.
I don't really think there's an answer to this. WAYWRN is what it is. Most of its contributors are, I suspect, fairly decent and intelligent people. A few like to be "cruel to be kind". I'm torn between slavishly trying to copy the "approved look" and pressing on with my own style. The former would in some ways be easier but ultimately a kind of cop-out; very few succeed with the latter approach. I would hate to become one of those "always fails, never learns, wish he would just piss off" guys. Maybe I already am.
So...having got all that off my tits, I give you....today's fit!

Funnily enough, I was accosted at an outdoor café this morning by a lady who insisted that I must be a barrister, because I was wearing a "barrister suit". Well, I think that's what she said. In retrospect, maybe she said "barista". For the record, I am neither.
Coxsackie and I are staging a coup.
