I agree with this. My comment was not to imply Cleav would look good in a very tall or large collar, just slightly taller given the types of ties and knots he wears. Good for Cleav to be open to at least trying it. If he doesn't like it, it will just reinforce his preference for the current collar height.

Speaking of collars,

 

I have calculated the dimensions of my neck and face:

 

Neck length: 5"

Neck width: 4.5"

Face width: 6.5"

Face length: 8"

 

Given that I'm 6'0, I remember @kulata informing that for men with a longer face and taller neck, that the collar and its points should be long and wide (spread); respectively.

here's a northern lights check

Don't like it. Top is a suit and bottom is a different suit.

Good deed Friday for my 2000th post

If you are a US42 or maybe US40 and in the market for a staple grey flannel suit. Here is a Sartoria Partenopea for Maxi Ho (A store in Napoli) at a steal price, this is essentially what you pay for a nice tie. I would have snagged it if it was a US44 but oh well it may just be your lucky day if you are looking for a staple grey flannel suit.

I own a 100% cashmere navy blazer from the store and it's made by Sartoria Partenopea. Fantastic stuff

*Don't ask me any questions. Just order if you need it and return if it doesn't work out

I'd grab it, but the pants will probably be 4 inches too big in the waist. I've paid more than that for some of my shirts.....someone better buy that quick!
post #15742 of 37672

That's an unfortunate name for a store

Yoox? Why's that, Greg?

I've never bought anything from them....or any other shop that doesn't have complete measurements. They have some very good deals on quality stuff though.

Looks really great - I'm confused, what's not to like here?  I'd change the square but everything else is pure win.  

 

Also that's definitely jacketing - I find it hard to believe that anyone would prefer that plaid as a suit

Not Yoox, but "Maxi Ho"... :uhoh:

Maxi "Ho" is an unfortunate name for a store indeed lol8[1].gif
post #15747 of 37672
Ah yes, maybe because their products get around? Really odd name for a store in Napoli.

I was going to say the same thing. The square was a terrible choice, but I think everything else looks good. I know a lot of people will say it would look better with mid grey trousers, but I like the dark bottom look there. I'm not crazy about that shirt collar, but that's just nitpicking.
