I has a jelly because my sartorial parmas don't fit me well.
First World problems i know.

le steech: love the fabric and features but something about the fit is off for me -- seems a bit generous in certain dimensions. Could just be because I'm viewing by phone.
here's me this morrow. Sorry for the photo dump. Can't find spoiler function on phone.

I really like that, GMM. I might have went for lighter trousers and a olive PS, but it's still great.

I gave @in stitches a thumbs up for the suit, which is just awesome. And the location and photography is nice FWIW. However, I don't really think that any of the shirt, tie and PS really worked hugely well here. The tie and shirt work with each other. However, the wide-spaced stripes seem incongruent with the texture / weave of the suit for some reason - perhaps the shirt is very CBD and the suit is most definitely not. PS just seems random. Nice shoes. The suit in itself is worth the love, and all the components are good, but once you stop gawping at the suit and its lovely shoulders and step back, I'm not sure it's a particularly strong fit by Stitchy standards.

 

I also don't like @Cleav's fit today, which is most unusual. The tie is excellent, and I normally like 'northern lights' but this strikes me as one example where it doesn't look right and the tie looks out or place in the ensemble.

 

I am aware that I am almost always a voice crying in the wilderness on these occasions...

 

You're not alone. The suit is great, obviously. I like the tie and square, but I think the square could be better. I agree that the widely spaced pencil stripes of the shirt are too formal for the rest. 

 

Cleav's didn't totally work for me either. I think it's just the tie being too bright for an otherwise sedate fit.

 

Still, good stuff from good gents.

Glad to see that the Danube Marl works with grey flannels in the wild, Mac--I held off on buying it.  My mistake.

Thanks! The color is great for Southern California. Wish I could fit the Samuelson … looks great on you!

Appreciate the honest feedback, gents. I would go ahead and explain why I simply disagree with it, but I have found that any kind of specific fit defense by the OP is poor, and adds nothing to the conversation. I guess we will have to agree to disagree.

Would very much like to hear @edmorel's opinion on the matter though.

Lol Noodles. Only you, baby.

@Isolation - Your most recent fit is probably one of if not the best I've seen from you. I think it goes to show what even a bit more subtlety in the cut of a jacket can do to make it look a lot better.

@in stitches - Holy. F*cking. Sh!t. That suit! Awesome.

Thanks!
I deliberately went outside the comfort zone on those, to see how far I could push it without breaking the whole.

4 patterns, btw.
