They should definitely require more reading n writing. I eventually hit the wall and the company assigned me a writing coach. In our 1st session, the coach discovered that I would get stuck as I tried to type up a draft. Then she handed me a pencil and paper. And I started writing away without fetting stuck. She said it is because I learned to write by hand.

I did for the first two years because my parents were holding a whipe - difficult to understand for someone born and raised in NA :-)
After that I started developing some crazy curiosity, and loved it. Geek...

Fit pic bump. A whole lot of CPA talk going on here, maybe I am in the wrong place....

In all seriousness, I posted here because I have gleaned a lot of good info by lurking this thread but happy to take this elsewhere if it would be more appropriate.

You're in the right place (though I completely understand why you might think otherwise ...).

 

(1)  Looks like it might be a tad short.

 

(2)  You have a substantially dropped right shoulder.

 

(3)  A stronger shoulder with a bit of extension would diminish the pear-shape silhouette, as would increasing the length a bit (assuming the shape is not just an artifact of the camera and the angle).

 

Cheers,

Thanks for the feedback. Still figuring out this whole "taking pictures of yourself for the Internet" thing but I'm pretty sure that camera angle isn't doing me any favors.

The jacket is part of a suit that I picked up second hand. Trousers are great but I am worried that the lapels on the jacket are too dated (Brooks Bros from the 70s). Look g for some input before I do any tailoring.

Lapels are fine. Button stance might be a bit high, but it's acceptable.

Do you have pics of the back? That should help with dropped shoulder/posture observations

Loafers vs chukkas - what is thought process in choosing to wear one over the other with an outfit (assuming both are suede and chocolate/brown colored). Talking mainly about casual outfits ( odd jacket combos, or jeans, etc) as opposed to suiting

Mood?

post #34707 of 37396
@Caustic Man

How does one accurately describe mood?
post #34708 of 37396

You don't. You feel it.

Thought it was a new styleforum term!

Mood: fun, confident

Edit - Do tell more about how mood will reflect shoe choice
