How's it fit?

 

It fits well enough for now, but damn this fabric is a carpet lol. A little slim cut for me and is a little tight on my arms with a very slight bit of bowing in the chest, but it's honestly fine. 

It's got some cool details (pattern matched elbow patches/working cuffs/etc). 

I honestly put it in the 'sell' pile because I was planning on gaining more weight, but I'm sitting at about 180 right now and I think I'm content being here or a little lighter so I don't think it's going to get much tighter.

True. I prefer fully canvassed and I think its worth a slight up charge if you are getting MTM, but I'd happily buy something I liked that was half canvassed. I believe the Cantarelli sport coats from NMWA are half canvassed and they are lovely in person.

Nope nope. Just remove the BD from the OCBD and then it's yep yep.

Yep, either, I don't wear BD, Yep biggrin.gif

I've never managed to like BD collars. Perhaps I secretly wish to be English.

Green pin dot tie isn't out of place with a navy pinstripe suit, right?

Have a last minute interview and my nice suit won't fit. Thrifted this one a bit ago and it works well enough for government work. Still trying not to look awful though...

Ok gents I have a question. My Fiance and I are throwing a party for our engagement. I bought a new suit which is a blue/blue grey suit. Its a gorgeous cloth and I will be wearing a white shirt with a eggplant colored tie. I dont wear black shoes as I cringe when I see black so what color shoe would you guys recommend? The suit doesnt photograph as blue or grey a bit of a hybrid of both. I am thinking of my dark brown Vass captoes but want to see what everyone opinion would be? I could upload a pic however its a shit photo as its hard to photograph.

Thanks!

Firstly, congratulations on your engagement. Best days work I ever was getting married to the Duchess over 25 years ago. I know it's hard to believe, 25 years!!
