I'll ask my wife to snap a picture next time I'm wearing one of my better fitting "fat guy" suits.

From the Engineered Garments SS15 collection, right?

Nope. HUGO BOSS

Shot of the jacket. I took f'length shots, but with the vagaries of getting into position for timer shooting, no usable images. Next time...

Teasing us, eh, SB? Looks good from what I can see!

Thanks! I'm quite pleased with it.

A detail shot:

I am not pear shaped! I just have a big head, not broad shoulders, and skinny legs.

I will freaking post a full naked picture of myself just to prove it!

Do it - I'll make sure to quote it prior to deletion.

The things SF'ers would do for style.

I looked up and went to a tailor shop near work. It was about a 30 minute walk. The closer I got to the shop, the farther away I was getting from..."civilized area." People started looking at me as if I didn't belong there. When I finally arrived, the shop looked like a dump but found a fellow Korean gentleman at the door. He was an older gentleman and I had a bit of trouble understanding what he was saying at certain points. I just made sure that I got 1.75" cuffs and no breaks on my trousers. Now I can start wearing all of my Formosa suits and start my journey on OJT with the light gray Kent Wang trousers.

Not sure if this is appropriate--Clags et al, delete if necessary--but in the spirit of this thread's focus on building a wardrobe of staple items, I have a recommendation.  For those who need a versatile warm-weather navy sportcoat, SF affiliate Khaki's of Carmel is selling a lightweight, fully canvassed, almost unstructured navy hopsack from Ring Jacket for $636.  Size up one from Eidos/Formosa if you have any mass whatsoever (I'm 5'9", 152 lbs, and by no means bulky, and the 40 fit my usually-a-38 frame perfectly).

I think that's well within the bounds of this thread's mission. Clags himself posts links to various ties and hanks he comes across.

Nothing wrong with this. That's a steal.
