Pants could use a taper

Not sure if you're joking, but didn't we have this whole discussion yesterday or the day before (and multiple times before that)? SVB has already laid out his position and people have laid out their oppositions. Bottom line, he's not going to change and he shouldn't either because you should dress primarily for yourself. That's not to say that fit and style shouldn't be discussed when people post fits, but this has already been hashed out.

 

SVB, you do you, buddy. Personally, I'm not for the retro-ish style, but you wear it as well as I think anyone could, and I respect that you stick to your guns on the matter.

Pardon the right cuff. Didn't lower the right sleeve jacket enough.

 

Suit - BnTailor

Shirt - Vanda Fine Clothing (yes, you read that right)

Tie - Vanda 

PS - Vanda 

Shooz - St Crispins

Scarf - The Hillside

M65 - Uniqlo

Besides the cuff, might the jacket be a bit short? Maybe it's just the way you're posed, though.

Length seems fine for a DB jacket, as double-breasted jackets are typically cut shorter than single-breasted jackets.

Ah, makes sense. Thanks.

The lightness and shininess meant that I thought it worked alright, though I saw SB's point.

That's a complete idea, and I think this jacket is working better than the navy one. I think you could keep playing with proportions and fit within this aesthetic, but it would be tweaky stuff.

Burn baby burn

(but the lapels would've been more aggressive in the 70s)

Nice work!

 

if u want critique.. (Click to show)
shoe and SC color r too close.  Mole or Loden suede b better imo.  Aqua/teal square doesn't seem the right choice here either- too near the shirt color.

 What's the reason for this, Journeyman?

Supposedly, because of the closed quarters, DB jackets are cut a bit shorter so as to not exaggerate the torso.

cheers, right. the horizontal hem can bisect the wearer. The SB is a gentler transition

Weird haircut after the shower this morning...

Sydneysiders, beware. @nabilmust is lurking in a stairwell somewhere, waiting to jump out and put your own painstakingly-chosen outfit to shame.

 

Truly exceptional Nabil - well done.

 

I'm picking up my own finished B&T suit tomorrow. Imagine the anticipation...
