1. jungle, that is probably the best purchase you have made in your life, hands down. I am legit jealous.
2. Rudals, Id like to jot a few notes towards your attention:
You are impetuous by nature, and that is fine. Kind of. Slow down and think as you go along. Snapping pics in 8 different suits and getting good advice is fine and dandy, but if you never stop enough to think about things based on what you have learned, you will be relying on others indefinitely. Sure, that may be fun for this thread, but its not ideal for you as a real living human being.
I like that first gray suit a lot, the fabric and color seem quite nice and I like Zegna. However, please make the following 2 mental notes.
1. When you take those mirror selfies you are lifting your arms which in turn lifts the body of the jacket and makes the button point appear higher than it does irl. Now, I dont know if you want to put your arms down and ask an SA to snap a pic, or take it home and have a friend/your woman do it and then bring back the stuff and buy what you like, or some other option, but the way you are taking the pics is not helping you to reflect how the suit actually looks, which is really the most important thing.
2. As it relates to button stance, some people are very specific that your belt buckle should never show when the jacket is buttoned. EVAR! Some people don't care, and some even like it, especially those who wear lower rise pants. You will inevitably get people yanking you each way. A lot depends on build. For example, due to my girth, and my leg to torso ratio, I am much better off with the buckle out of sight. DerekS however, almost always has a visible buckle and he looks great. He is both taller and skinnier than me and has longer legs, so the visible waist line does not skew the appearance of his proportions.
This is one of many many areas where there is not, per say, a right and a wrong, there is only a what looks best on you. You need to figure that out, and stick with it. Know in advance that there will always be people that do not like it, just like HF did not like my light tan shoes and navy suit, and that is fine, because if it looks good, and you are following a specific path with knowledge of what you are doing, and you pick one camp over another, thats is A-Ok.
Thats all for now. [/quote]
Now, that is worth reading and considering Doodals et al
Stop learning? Never.
Well said S
