looks good noodles

much better than that RLBL in black
post #13322 of 37405
You lie.
But agree with u on RLBL.

I think something close to black or black looks way better on an Asian than light mid gray unless textured. Got to get a good cut to shirk the cheap suit feel but I think it can look great. Imma wear my black chan when I get a chance. Also want a db in this: http://www.dugdalebros.com/online-shop/new-fine-worsted-bunch-140/8932/ next year.

This is the correct, and thus the only, answer.

I have those pants, and they are awesome. But if you want something for the gun check, start with the plain light gray flannel. I have those too and they are the perfect pants for a loud SC up top. Kop the herringbone also though because they rule.

Grabbed the herringbone and the medium brown. Would've kopped light grey flannel, but not available.

Noodles, you are nuts. Work on the lapel roll and that suit is a keeper.

Those brown twill look really good. I need a lighter pair so I only grabbed the fawn. I'm done with trousers for a while.

I sit here and shake my head, struggling to understand why Noodles will put on a full suit and tie for a fit pic but show up barefoot. I guess it's better than wearing a jacket over a t-shirt or untucked shirt and jeans, but seriously. Either don't show the feet or wear decent shoes and complete the picture.

Also, that suit is a hell of a lot better than the ill fitting things you had at the beginning of this thread. You're just being neurotic and over-analytical. You got rid of an ill-fitting black suit that was completely useless and now have something that is absolutely passable and wearable. By all means buy things you like more when you have the time and cash, but accept an incremental improvement along the way.

Both excellent choices. HANJOY! No go out there and find some simple light gray flannel pants.

Haha...I was gonna say the same thing. Crop those beat feet out before you post, man!
post #13331 of 37405
Wait...y'all know Asians dont wear shoes inside their homes, right?

I didnt crop for you all's entertainment!

Noodles. I think a different tie would look better as well, but that suit is awesome on ya.

Glad you found something else that works. That's the PRL, right?

Take your fit pics outside or in the office if you must (or crop out your feet FFS). Plus I've heard of not wearing shoes in one's home, but never heard of not wearing socks. Entertainment is overrated; it's pretty much impossible to evaluate a suit from a barefoot picture.

I pulled the trigger on the briefcase. I'm sure there are better ones to be had, but (a) not at that price - incredible bargain and (b) not in Sydney at any price.

 

I already have a structured (i.e. cuboid with hard edges) briefcase faced in burgundy croc-pattern leather, with a nice tan pigsuede interior. These are unfashionable now but I like it. Purchased it many years ago at Victoria Market in Melbourne. This new case will complement that one nicely.

 

You really don't want to see my other case. It's a shocker. Will be tossed on the pyre very soon.
