I have taken to suits more lately since half the battle is won and choices are plainly obvious.
Such is life although I would not mind a 2 hour slot in which to play dress up just me and the mirror or audience shog[1].gifpeepwall[1].gif

actually, i usually do start with my pants, and work from there. not even sure why, its just how things developed. i think maybe it forces me to use different SCs, or id be reaching for the same few every time. happened to be i was itching for the SC/tie pairing so i started there, gotta change things up from time to time, lol. the most i have time to try out is holding up two ties to my jacket.

i wish i had more suits. frown.gif

I do really like this organic fit battle. It's a great idea, and fun.

was not offended in the least, homeslice.

I think these are both excellent fits. Really the only differences are the proportions, pants break/cuff show, shirt collar, and choice of footwear.

And Quadcammer, that was a douchenozzle thing to say.

I don't know if this is true or not, but perhaps your tie is too small Stitchy? Maybe it would look better with a wider one with your frame. Orge's tie looks wider by comparison, and more in harmony with his lapels IMO. But he is also cheating of course, showing that much of the tie when he can't button his coat. smile.gif

It's a fit battle.

 

I wish Stitches had cuffs but other than that.. it's all Stitch.

 

Both look fantastic though.

Would have preferred the jacket buttoned in the middle. If jacket a touch too small, 50bucks would fix that since there should be an inch or so of let out room a tailor could utilize.

Dieting for another few weeks is cheaper. smile.gif I just gotta get past the -20lb plateau shog[1].gif

IS has bad camera angle working against him.

O is one of the better dressers on this forum. Not as good as the Asian crew, but far better than the Reddit crowd.

The square, the pant cuffs, he has a nice bit of shirt cuff showing. I like the check on in_stitches's coat, but I think it does go to Orgetorix overall, with the square versus lack of square being the tipping point.

All this. By the way, I like to notice that Org has a much nicer lapel roll, he's tailored his jacket sleeves much nicer, and the collar on his shirt is just beautiful.

Org seems to be a great dresser and a good example to follow. He has a pretty simple palette, gets things that fit him right (i.e. choosing carefully and tailoring correctly), and is able to look very elegant, even though he's a pretty ordinary-lookin guy in ordinary shape.

Also, yes, his photo is a lot better than Stitchy's.

I have really enjoyed following O's blog, and am shocked at how he finds all these great fitting clothes through thrifting and ebay, although that's a different topic.
