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.

Sounds about right. Solid summation.

Noodles you're wearing SCs to work now?!?!?

Thx y'all!
I dont know what I do unconsciously when a photo is about be taken. I definitely dont stand in my natural form/stance. Thats a sweet SC bit it is $900-(15%).
@jrd - yes, I may once a month just to diversify my look. I mean look at what the heck I am wearing today!

Fabric is nice. Fit and cut aren't great; not feeling the lapels, it's tight in the chest and will get worse when you layer it or gain a little weight.

He's right. Don't get it. Stay focused on the goal, noodles.

But my look is too boring~

Get some hankies. Not super expensive, and they can liven up your look a lot. Try making some nice combinations, practice with that. After that get some nice textured wool/cashmere ties, and by then the new Formosa's should be released. Also, try finding a tailor where it doesn't take a month to shorten the sleeves. I dropped my jacket off for the sleeves yesterday, and it's done today.

Get nice wool socks too. No more white tennis socks. Get some black or dark brown balmoral boots for winter, and maybe a nice black Adelaide.

Get some loafers for casual wear. Look into Carmina's string loafers. Time to throw out those Adidas superstars you always wear. Get some nice raw denim, chinos or grey wool flannels for casual wear. A navy blazer is essential as well.

You have much to do and learn, so no need to complain about boring fits at the moment.

Kulata is right

Those lapels are bowing = too tight of chest

Did you measure the p2p?
post #12730 of 37392
No measurements.

The SC, Noodles, is very much like the one MF and Stitchy have from Eidos in pattern. I like that it's rougher in texture (cashmere). It's fused, though?

 

I would not buy until you try it on and verify the fit. The picture you posted is so distorted that I wonder if it's your stance plus the magic of iPhone pics. Your chest and abdomen seem to be bulging! But if the bowing does not disappear, I would definitely pass or try one size up. The shoulders look clean so you wouldn't want to lose that.

 

Be patient on SCs. Aren't the Formosa MTO SCs about 500 more than this BBs? I'd save up and spend on the Formosa.

It's a nice SC, but it looks like you're about to explode out of it.

It looked like the lapels were lying flat on my other monitor....I see the chest is a bit too tight now.

Pass on SC. 

I will just shut up and get more Formosa suits. Can't do anything wrong with that.

Focus on fit!

Posting oddly-angled pictures and asking "does this fit?" isn't a very efficient method of determining fit

You need to deal with hard numbers

Srs, go into your local CVS and get one of these in the shoe repair section. Take it to the store next time to measure the chest, shoulders, etc
