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.

Nothing wrong with the knot. He is showing too much square. And the rest is the jacket's fault.

 

Rudals. You are not 183. 180, tops.

 

Unless we're talking about circumference.

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.

I've not heard this. You wouldn't apply this "rule" to 3 roll 2 though, would you?

edit: maybe that Milano is 3/2? For the record, I'm definitely in the camp that would like to see him lose the top button closure. It throws the balance of the jacket off and makes it appear more skirt-like. Perhaps it's a cpa thing?

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 would like to dissociate myself completely from the previous poster and his alleged browser history.

I'm a little hesitant to go with KW MTM because there's no human measuring you. You don't have the right sense of fit yet.

 

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.
