I like the idea of SB getting his own scale. His clothing analysis is cogent enough to be of great use to this thread.

+1. He could also give an interesting contrast to the stated tastes of foo.

Back from vacation, tried my luck with the FooPuff™ today. I think it certainly is a huge improvement over my previous puffing "technique". This is a new Drake's wool/silk hank, which was waiting for me at my desk - wondering if it works here.

RDiaz, the foo.gif fold is an improvement, but not ideal. I remain skeptical of the suitability of that semicircular shape...

What I like about it is that the hank doesn't tend to attempt escaping from the pocket, as was usual with my previous puffs. Also, the arrangement seems to make it less bulky.

 

I like the semicircular shape, but I see your point - perhaps it looks way too neat and tidy?

Another try today, with and without the pocket square. It may be hard to tell with the light, but the suit is navy.

It shouldn't come out so much it looks like a semicircle. Try tucking it in another centimeter or so.

While I love foo's posted suit the only thing that I find a bit jarring are the buttons. Too much contrast for a suit, imo.

It also has patch pockets and double-stitching. Not sure if that makes it much better or much worse to you.

I guess a little better, but I always associate button contrast with blazers, or odd jackets.

It's a summer blazer suit.

I'll leave the rest to comment on the combination, but that trousers looks like spandex hugging your thighs. My 2c.
