because you post more close-ups?  Stitchy's pics tend to be more middle ground.

+1 to HW. I use FIH more often, but will still wear HW regularly. Really depends on the tie. I have some which simply look better with a HW. I also tend to use HW more with wider lapels. And longer ties (such as older Henry Carter) where the tie "pen0r" would be too much even for me.

The length of the back of the jacket seems quite reasonable, but I think the bottom hems of the sides of the jacket appearing to be lower than the rear vent flap looks very wrong to me. It's not for me to recommend what you do with the jacket, but if I were to want to keep it, I'd have to get that corrected, if it can be corrected.

Sorry the pictures are washed out! I'll fix that for future posts. 

in the meantime: 
- the suit has a light blue windowpane in it
- the shirt is light blue with green and white stripes
- the tie is chocolate brown with blue dots
- square is white linen

Like the tie! The jacket fit is good, though it looks like you may be able to swing a bit more length in the future. iPhone pics have a way of throwing proportions off so it's hard to tell.

Shirt doesn't belong in this fit; would go solid light blue or pale pink since you've got a patterned tie and suit. And if you're going to do a plain white linen square I don't think a puff really works. It's kinda TV fold or maybe a few peaks or nothing.

Lastly, pants are hemmed a bit too short it would seem from the first pic - looks like they're floating. If there's fabric left maybe consider getting them let out a bit?

Have you ever considered having a suit with stronger (maybe even extended) shoulders + chest drape/swell? I realize that's a complete 180 from your style, but..

Went a bit troppo today - don't know what possessed me.

 

 

 

 

I did have fun though!

Coxsackie, everyone in this life needs a bit of "de trop" now and again - good that you enjoyed it.

Speaking of "de trop", my attire today is a bit of overkill for the occasion, but I enjoy it.

Out to dinner with old friends this evening.

Suit - BBGF Regent
Shirt - Tyrwhitt
Tie - Canali
PS - Alain Figaret
Cufflinks - Budd, London
Shoes - C & J

IIRC he did too. The difference is that you didn't keep it up long enough for people to consider it a personal idiosyncrasy. I hardly notice it with Stitch now, and I doubt many others do either.
