I tried out some of the combinations y'all suggested. I threw in a solid green tie and also a green polka dot tie, although I'm sure it's not SF approved.

#4 is the best (if worn with black shoes and belt). Very rakish
#6 is the best in a more business conservative way (would work well with dark brown shoes)

2nd try to pick up the suit. Left one hour early from work. Drove thru stupi@ss traffic for 45 minutes. Arrived at the tailor shop. Found parking. Ran from the parking lot up to the tailor shop. Saw a sign from afar that read, "Shop closed early at 3 today."

Maybe call first next time, Noodles?

rms340, with the exception the polka dots, I think all of those work. I'm not as adventurous as gdl, though, so the chunkier knit would not be my first choice.

What yall think about this SC?


Picked up 3 thick winter socks for just $25!!!

Do silk knits work with cream linen SC's?

Noodles, I like that SC and the fit looks good too. Like really good. Kop!

Thx for the feedback!
I think this is one way diversifying my look!

Not bad, Noodles. Do you think you might be subconsciously throwing your shoulders back when you get your picture taken?
post #12714 of 37396
Yes. One of the many subconscious robopose nuances. The robopose is about the most unnatural position a man can be in. As such, when one is attempted, there is almost always at least one area where the subject has positioned something awkwardly.

Noodles, if you are in Georgetown, I almost bought that same SC there last week.  It's cashmere right?  That is an amazing off the rack fit for you...or at least it appears to be in the crappy pic.

Ugh...should have been grading and instead, watched two episodes of season 4 of the Walking Dead. And I get on my students for not prioritizing!

 

Noodles, I like the pattern and fabric. However, either you're throwing your shoulders unnaturally back, leading to the bowing at the lapel or it is a touch too small in the chest. I suspect it might be the former. But make sure the lapel line is straigher if you try it on again. I'm with SB, Stitchy and Murl if it's just your pose. A refreshing change for you. When chillier (not now!) something to wear with a blue BD on the weekends with a nice tan/brown cashmere scarf when you run out for some starbucks.

IMO it looks pretty dang good Noodles, but for the slight bowing.  Fitzgerald?

You and I have already discussed this. We reached and agreed upon several conclusions, as I recall:
a) clothing in motion will always provide a better sense of fit than clothing in a still shot
b) a robopose is very difficult to do well
c) when done well, no other still pose will convey fit better than that
d) even when done well, it lacks a certain something found in more relaxed poses

As far as c) goes, Vox is king at roboposing well. Betel isn't quite there, but is quite good. I'm not bad at the robopose myself.

Looks good Noodles. I like it. Although, if my memory serves me correct, you've been trashing Zegna's Milano cut over their "skinny" lapels (3,25-3,5"). This SC seems to sport the same lapel width, no?

If you're not throwing your shoulders back, this SC needs a slightly fuller chest. I think the lapel width is objectively alright (if there was such a thing as objectivity), but your frame is more flattered by the Formosa lapels, i.e. fuller cut lapels. For RTW though, this is really good.
