I would post some pictures with that shirt and different SCs. Like I said, the stripes are a bit thicker.

I really hope westerners do not think of Confucianism as a religion.

I don't have the shirt yet. Was debating whether or not to kop

My vote is for the Havana jacket unless you think you'll wear the suit often enough to go in that direction instead. I would not choose to use the Lazio jacket as an odd jacket, though, so my vote is a very biased one.

Noodlers, I figure I'll get a more diverse and experienced set of opinions here than in the Proper Cloth thread.

I got my newest fit and and have washed it twice. It fits perfect in the midsection when I'm standing, but I'm not sold when I sit down. What do you think, half an inch too tight, or just right for a very slim fit?

That's me sitting up straight and sticking out my gut.

That bulge at the bottom is what concerns me.

And that's me slouching down while sticking my gut out.

Am I being paranoid? Or do I need to let it out a tad?

Here's a full standing fit pic.

Sorry for all the pictures of me sticking my gut out as far as possible!

Well, Suit Supply offers free returns so you could get both and return the one you like least.  They actually encourage that kind of thing.

 

Cheers,

Sorry I missed this. I was actually just sitting here thinking about how lucky I was (and feeling very content). For me, this is what contentment looks like: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


The coffee is decaf. I had a caffeinated one a few hours ago)

To be clear, I mostly focus on organizational culture and on national culture as it pertains to organizations. But in doing the latter, I've read a good amount on the development of culture (I also taught a class in Seoul on the development of cultural values and thought processes).

So I don't really get into the nitty gritty of culture in the traditional sense (though if I did, I'd be looking at a much smaller lifetime income)

Americans have a hard time disentangling religion from morality, I think, because we don't really comprehend the degree with which Christian morals, particularly those of the New Testament, are rooted in Greek philosophy. This was made even clearer after living in East Asia, where the dominant morality is directly tied philosophy, both in practice and in history.

I think it is rather telling that when when I took World Geography in middle school in the late 90's, Confucianism was taught as a religion. For a lot of Americans, if something is a belief system, it must be a religion. Philosophical belief systems don't even occur to many Americans because we have become so far removed from our own.

 

It's not only with Americans, organized religions are governed by uneducated priests everywhere. This gives room to so many stupid self-help, don't-worry-be-happy type of movements, that lack basic philosophical foundation.

Original Bible was translated from Greek, it was compiled and written in Alexandria (probably), in the time when Stoicism was the order of the day.

Unfortunately, I was never much exposed to Eastern (Asian) way of life or belief system, so can not fully relate. But then again, I'm still young :D

That Havana SC is very versatile, has a true navy (dark) color, while Lazio suit is more blue, and I don't think it will work well as SC. I don't like it's color.

Id vote again for the Havana silk/wool for sure.
post #33808 of 37396

The havana sc looks almost too casual... like a knit.

I'd say those two styles are very different.

 

The suit jacket might work as an SC with different buttons, though the fabric would make this hard.

How does one justify calling that a sportcoat...?
post #33809 of 37396
Because it is. And it is awesome.

@gdl203, please elaborate.

Might as well call it a cardigan with lapels ;)

How would you wear it?
