Friday smirk. Have a good weekend, gentlemen.

@mcobinad my only suggestion would be to opt for a four in hand.

Thanks for the thumbs and comments, gents. Yesterday's fit was put together in a hurry and yet I immediately had a good feeling about it. It was a winner on the street and at work, and appears even to have graced SF's front page. Cool bananas!

 

Credit where it's due: two of the pieces were on "maiden voyage". The jacket is Brunello Cucinelli, and was the bargain of the millenium. Cotton, buggy-lined, fitted like a glove off the rack, but had several large stains which looked like they might have occurred during shipping. I pointed them all out to the shop manager, bargained hard, and won the deal. One visit to the dry-cleaners later, it's pretty much as good as new. (You can still see the stains if you know where to look, but they are hardly noticeable now.)

 

The burgundy Sozzi knit is from @Henry Carter and there are still a few "on sale" right now (in several colours). Jason's stuff is always great and these prices are irresistible, even more so for you lucky Stateside bastards with your strong dollar.

 

@mcobinad , I liked both versions of your last fit but preferred the green tie. Also the jacket is by no means too large on you. Pents still a little more close-fitting than would be my preference, but I guess this will always be tricky, given your musculature.

The linen jacket creases more than I would like. I feel it is a fabric that should be blended...

 

 

The creasing might also be alleviated by the jacket being a better fit on you...This looks very tight to my eye, sorry bud.

Honestly, I would like to know if there is more to it or just a preference for certain people on here...... shog[1].gif

 

I think DBs generally look better cut on the slim side. But then, "slim cut" usually looks better on slim dudes. The pulling there also might be just 'cause he's leaning over. Pictures can't tell everything.
