It took some tailoring by my alterations tailor to give my jacket some shape, and even now it's a little boxy.

i've concluded either the fitzgerald is an excellent fit for you or there is no hope on earth that it will look good on you. For me, I've never been able to fit into one—there is always a wonky shoulder issue with one that fits in the chest. Since losing some weight, I thought the shoulder issue disappeared—only to discover that the chest is weirdly big on the size that fits in the shoulders. Turns out to get the right chest fit, the shoulder issues return.

@SeaJen

My tailor did excellent work, however, in giving it some shape without causing the single vent to gape. I have no clue what magic he did, actually. I'm not a religious double-vent zealot or anything, but do find they are 10x less forgiving with gaping if the jacket isn't perfectly cut for you. For that reason alone, I steer toward double vents (besides the typical aesthetic superiority and SF group think preference for them).

With the juxtaposition of words, I could not let the opportunity pass - I am incorrigible in that respect . . .shog[1].gif

I was raised by a very old-school elementary school teacher - grammatical pedantry was her stock in trade. It rubbed off . . .

Like the Commasutra you're filled with grammatical juxtapositions.

Puns are the highest form of comedy, amirite? happy.giffacepalm.gif

I tried this on. It fit me well but I was bothered by the lapel size.

when i first joined styleforum, narrow lapels were kinda liked. all the bespoke-only dudes of course had their own thing going, but us plebes still kinda liked them.

also docholliday always talked about how they were a way of life. has he stuck with that?

ah, the good old days.

I too wish both of these things, but if I were more flush neither of them would prevent me from picking that up. Hopefully it'll still be around in the near future.

Fitzgerald fits me very well, edpecially on the shoulders. But it's single vented, which just doesn't look good on me.

Very early start to the day - would normally stick with my navy grenadine, but wanted to try something different:

I like this. I think the cardigan works well. The white ocbd/knit tie/cardigan/burg shoes/tweed thing is very Ivy, but the shoes themselves look rather English, and the cut of the clothes is very Italian (and very nice). So, best of three worlds, IMO. White oxford is fine here, I'd say. The white/green square with white shirt and green tie is pushing it, but I don't think it's too much. I think if you had a square with navy (from the sweater), green, and some other color, that would be good. I also think a university stripe oxford could be really cool here, with everything else the same. Would you mind sharing some details on the shoes?

 

Speaking of uni-stripes, this was yesterday (sleeves need work, huh?):

 

 

I wore that with burgundy brogued cap-toe bluchers. Can't say I've noticed that collar gap in the mirror.

 

And this is today, with the same hank (I'm lazy). Dark brown AE Strands:

That's my main beef with the Fitzgerald fit. I generally stick with Madison for shirts SCs and everything else really.
