Haha. May so be it. Though I've been told, on three or four different occasions, by different people that are unfamiliar of each others' existence, that I look like Leonardo Dicaprio with it. Though I have to say that that is not a familiarity I can see or care about, and I would grow a really manly beard if I could.

And a question: was the dubious choice of facial hair so overpowering that you lost all words to comment on my outfit (which, truth to be told, was the reason for me to post the picture in here)? If not, I would like to hear what you think (goatee aside) since I think that you have a great taste in clothing.

pazzion - i wouldnt quite call that a goatee. wink.gif

i think the fit is nice, shirt maybe a tad casual for the suit and tie, but nothing major. pet peeve, earphone cords in fit pics.

I think the colors work, but I don't like the style or cut of the suit, personally. To get a bit foo, I thin it would look better with a cream silk square, but the white works.

lapels maybe a bit small, but what else can you really tell about the cut or style from that pic?
post #9140 of 12606
It looks a bit stiff. I mean, I guess you are correct on not being able to properly judge it, but also I don't like the faux pick-stitching . It is meant to look high quality or rackish, but it just looks a bit gaudy to me. Of course, these are only opinions.
post #9141 of 12606
didnt lok stiff to me. how can you tell the pick stitching is faux?
post #9142 of 12606
Because you notice it. It is very prominent and too uniform.
post #9143 of 12606
What about this one, pb? This is by hand, right?

post #9144 of 12606
At that price it better be.

interesting. i like pick stitching though, so i dont mind when its noticeable, also, the pic is very close up.

unbel - lol

Also in the Bel pic, those are swelled edges, very different from just simple pick stitched lapels. Swelled edges are made to look prominent, but for what it is worth shouldn't really be done on a suit, only sportcoats and overcoats.

You won't like Mantonio's recipe for a blazer suit then.

pazzion your PS shouldn't fill the whole pocket like that. And  angle it down towards the lapel side.  nice tie
