Moo, I think that jacket is too long for you. I really like the belly on those lapels though.

I had the same thought about the length, but wasn't sure that critique was appropriate for this thread. +1 for the lapels, too.

I used to really like them but I'm getting tired of them. The knots always look messy and they pil like a mofo. Any takers? I've got probably half a dozen from Rubinacci, Borrelli, Kiton, et al.

So the photo was taken before drinking in the baby's room?

There is an unconverted crib and sleepers in the background of the picture.

if you don't know this already - you can use the volume buttons (either of them) as shutter release, so you don't need to hold the phone and get a finger around to the screen to trigger a photo. It helps a lot with the arm's length pictures.

Yes and no. Or is it no and yes?

The off center belt buckle is kind of confused.gif but the height of the pents is OK, or as the ladies like to say, "age appropriate."

I would say your tie length is just right in the picture where you are wearing suspenders. When pants are worn on the hips, I try to get the tip of the tie to cover the waistband. When pants are worn higher, I try to tie the tie so it would be the same length as if I were wearing pants on the hips--which results in the tie going well past the waistband.

I believe my source for this habit was Will from ASW, but I could be mistaken.

Trying to calibrate the length of the coat for a shorter man is invariably difficult. Logically, it'd make sense to have it made shorter so as to show more leg, but yet it can border on looking cartoon-ish if so.
