That is outstanding. Fantastic.

Is that Solito? I love the draped chest.

+1 I think it's one of Manton's best ever.

I hear you, but in this case, I don't think the rule is helping.

Sorry, Moo.

Not feeling the first one. I think the boldness of the tie and PS are at odds with the muted finish of the jacket. Will describes the problem well:

Like the second one a lot better, but IMO, that PS is quite distracting.

That's so awesome. Congrats. I have been on a wolfe kick lately. Reading all of his stuff.

I personally think the scale of the striped in the shirt and the jacket are too close. Also, the collar on the shirt isn't my favorite.

Dude, are you taking these photos while you drive? From crotch level?

That looks great.

no way that pic was taken in a car. also, the background seems to be walls. but i think you are just about right on the crotch level assessment.
