Agreed on the white, although cream would be more interesting. I think a slightly bigger lapel would look better too - besides my personal bias towards wide lapels, yours is on the skinny side in proportion to the rest of the jacket, and you. As for the cotton/linen etc, of course they're very comfortable, but you have to live with the creasing and so I think they work best for casual jackets - cotton in particular.

Head to ankles current season Eidos including brown unlined linen puppytooth (oremezzano) suit, white cotton/linen spread collar shirt and brick/brown bicolor silk knit and white linen raw edged square with brown silk chainstitch (like you would find on the hem of denim). Hooves are from Jamison.post #20 of 37375/22/14 at 5:12ampost #21 of 37375/22/14 at 5:40amQuote:Originally Posted by Sotiris

Was thinking cotton instead, though.
you're a good candidate for a Liverano cut Isolation. you've got the physique to go wide long lapels, fitted waist and open quarters, ... suit u more than this, which isn't bad all the sameQuote:Originally Posted by IsteRed

With regards to the picture discussion:Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)I have the full set up, though I think I only bought the remote (10 bucks) for the purposes of SF. DSLR and nice tripod I had before I started getting really into taking pictures of what I wear. The pictures would be better if I could go outside; I'd get nice depth of field and better lighting. But generally that is too much of a hassle and embarrassing to boot, even if I do go out behind my apartment (as I have occasionally done for Friday Challenges). Still, having a good camera makes the process a bit more fun yet also frustrating. Just as there is a lot that can go right with a dslr over a point and shoot or iPhone, there is a lot more that could go wrong as well. But you can play around with the iso, f-stop, etc etc and get things like richer colors, depth of field (switched to a different lens recently; between my wife and I, we have around 10k worth of lenses...which isn't much as far as real photography buffs go....NOBD), better interplay between shadows...lots of fun stuff. I'm a generally bad photographer, and the lighting in our place is pretty bad. The above picture is from two standard windows, one about 15 feet in front of me and the other about 18 feet to my left. Neither window really produces much light when I generally take my pictures, especially as both face other buildings.post #24 of 37375/22/14 at 6:21ampost #25 of 37375/22/14 at 6:28amThread Starter
It isn't. My last mtm piece before jumping over. They had really dialled in the fit, and at around 2/5 the price, I was tempted not to make the jump. But ultimately, I was bored with the cut and wanted variety. Plus its only half canvassed.post #26 of 37375/22/14 at 6:30ampost #27 of 37375/22/14 at 7:22am
I do like slightly seedy connotations, 'tis true.Originally Posted by Isolation

I'd second the suggestion of a black tie with this. The just-lighter-than-navy tie and dark brown suit are very strong visual counterpoints, with the white shirt only enhanced the contrast. A black tie would "settle" down the centre of the look, evening things out. Also either a wider collar (to go down an SF route), or a smaller one (for a non-SF look).
