I need to be better about my photos, I'm sorry. It's actually Silver, Brown and Navy with a slight sheen to it. I haven't worn a stripe tie in some time. I may go back a couple pages and consider some with some texture/shantung or something. Thanks.

Noodles, I know that you are a Daniel Craig Bond fan, so perhaps you know where I can get some ties like this for less than Tom Ford prices.

I feel that my grenadines are not CBD enough, and that type of weave would work much better.

No p, jr. Getting good pics is rough. Glad to here that block is silver not white.

Really? I've never felt that. Grenadines are perfectly conservative for any occasion IMO. A solid, fine weave grenadine is rather inconspicuous. The texture isn't even noticeable from more than 3 or 4 feet away.

So Rudals I'll attempt to explain why the silhouette of that latest coat is much more flattering on you than the previous ones.

First the older smaller coats, see the effect it has with the shoulders creating an A shape of your torso? It's quite, well not feminine but definitely not masculine either.



Second the new coat, the extended shoulder is much more flattering and combined with the waist nip, gives you a much more masculine V shape. This is what you should look for in newer coats. If this has been covered already, my apologies I haven't been keeping a close eye on the thread for a while.

Noodles did you get the waist shaped on that jacket? Either you're standing weird, or it looks like it could use a little of bit of shaping

@Henry Carter

Are you sure that isn't a picture of the same suit taken at a weird angle?

Its Awesome, Surely I will buy at least two.

hmm perhaps your right. Rudals? Funny Angle or weight loss/gain? Either way the bottom version is much more flattering and the top version is what I noticed the majority of his coats looked like in the 38R.

P.S You do have some issues with the trousers also. The back rise looks too long perhaps (notice the sagging around your back thighs) and they could be lengthened 2cm.

Thanks for chiming in. 

I believe the issue with the trousers is, once again, what my tailor referred to as balance issue. 

Basically, I have  a flat buttocks which causes the extra fabric in the back to just...cause bagginess(?). 

The length will be adjusted. I think I need a break.
