Noodles - Great suit. Pocket square looks like it is trying to fly away.

I will work on the PS. I will most likely crumple it up and stuff it.

OT re: Fappening (Click to show)

@Isolation - regarding the Fappening: I agree with you entirely, and indeed that's why I have chosen not to download or look at these celeb photos. I do suspect that your diatribe was in reaction to my comment, in which case you mistook my intent. You appear to have conflated "blame" with "lack of sympathy". I do not in any way blame the people whose salacious images were leaked. I also empathise with their plight. But I find myself a little more reluctant fully to sympathise with that plight.

 

If you want to be the mayor of Toronto, don't go snorting crack cocaine - unless you're prepared to deal with the consequences. If you're a racing driver, don't have one too many glasses of wine at a restaurant and then drive home. And if you're an aspiring popular entertainer, don't allow naked photos of yourself to be taken, and especially, don't then upload those photos to a cloud server with weak password protection. It's purely a matter of common-sense.

 

Again I emphasise that I am entirely in agreement with your general argument, and I hope that the people who stole the images are found and prosecuted for their disgraceful and clearly criminal behaviour.

Fudge.
Sleeves too long and way too uneven.
post #11795 of 37396

R sleeve looks good to me. L side needs shortening. Possibly you have a dropped left shoulder or long left arm, or perhaps Murl had the opposite.

 

Just be careful with the cuff button positioning. If the button-holes are fake and not heavily stitched, moving a button is an easy task for a good alterations tailor. However, heavily-stitched fake buttonholes will leave marks behind, in which case the sleeve will need to be shortened at the shoulder - not a job for beginners, even with a plain-coloured suit.

 

On the whole I think this suit deserves a gun tailor. Choose carefully and be prepared to pay a little extra for their expertise.

Damn Doodals! That is a very nice fit on the shoulders. Definitely the lessons have paid off! Congrats!

Great fit, Noodles! And gorgeous lapel roll. Of course a suit with such voluptuous curves and 'personality' can never be worn in a CBD environment. wink.gif

Gonna get a Formosa in the fall for sure! Thanks y'all

I am thinking about this one...along with others that Noodlers have suggested.

Noodles:

1. Buy that tie now and a few others.

2. Order some more ties to bring your total acquisitions since this post to 10 ties.

3. Add at least a few other ties to your wishlists.

4. Profit (well, at least look damn good).

There is definitely some spill over from AV selling into SF orthodoxy, that's for sure.  And some are just brand ho's.  Noodles has a LV handbag.

Pshhh NO ONE in CM geeks out over Kiton, Brioni, or Attolini. NO ONE

 

@The Noodles Damn, that looks like a Drake's striped grenadine I was hunting for a few months ago. OOS too :(

By the way, I'm not sure about more stripes for you, Noodley, especially in bold colours like the red/white/blue you have in mind: you're young and have a boyish look, and are, I think, wanting to project a more adult and masculine kind of personal authority in your business dress.  With your proportions, stripey ties and grey or blue suits will always be somehow reminiscent of school uniform.  You don't want to look like an Asian Harry Potter.  The neats work better for you, I think.
