Does it, @Rudals?
Okay, let's break this $hit down...if anyone cares to.
I think I look good today (except the hair) but someone slap me upside the head and let me know what the heck is wrong with today's fit.
I was delete happy so I deleted the other pictures so I don't have anything to compare.
Does it really come just down to the top button or is there more to it?
Your knot sucks. You're showing too much square. You buttoned the top button (This is a general SF hate thing I think. Not much love for the hard 3 here). Jacket sleeve length could use .25 - .5". In short, you're hitting the basics, but not nailing the details.
Rudals, you made no poor choices with today's fit. It's just that the jacket doesn't fit you well. That isn't your fault. It's the jackets. I like 3 button. Ask anyone. But you don't have the body for it (generally anyone under 185cm doesnt).
Also, I wore a navy knit with a country jacket just for this thread.
Perhaps that's a bit of a generalisation, like fat dudes not wearing DBs - not always right. In this instance a slightly fuller length jacket with a more accommodating fit, help I think. Short and tight three buttons make you look like a child.
He said he was 6ft....183 is about right? Or is that just with weekend heels on?
You're coherent for the type of dress you need. The type of pieces are well chosen. For each, there are nits to pick but you have the forest (now the trees). I think good progress.
Most of us have all have reached a point where our wardrobe is not where we need it to be to achieve what we want to achieve (where you are now, where I am still). But knowing that goal is half the battle (and the hardest one, I think).
I had a good result with a MTM suit from KW, but also did not need any significant changes from the trial jacket. I think this is key for any MTM that is done through the internet and not in person. If the trial jacket fit Rudals well, he could get a nice result, but agree that he should go for in person MTM if the trial jacket is not pretty close.
