A day in Via Del Tritone, Vittorio Emmanuele, ROME.






Picked up a CANALI shirt from this store: Michael F. Store owner is Italian. He has lived in the States and speaks very good English. He is a CANALI retailer. Top notch service and highly recommended smile.gif

@mcobinad, I appreciate what you're doing, but your clothes are too tight

Thanks for your comment but I am forced to disagree with you on this one. I don't know if you based your assumption on my previous fits. As for this particular suit, I went two sizes up from a regular 48 to a size 50 (38-40 UK). If you look at the arms and chest of my suit jacket, you will notice how relaxed the jacket is and the buttons are not pulling as opposed to my precedent suit jackets. On previous occasions, people on this forum have called my attention to the snug fit of my suit jackets and I decided to heed to their advice. For this reason, I decided to go from a 38 to a 40 and here again, you are telling me that my suit is tight. Oh well, I know I have done my bit and that I can not please everyone. I have said this before and will say it again, if anyone does not like my fit; simply skip. I just think a lot of people here are biased. I know how much effort I have made here but some are still bound to judge me based on my previous fits as if people never make progress. It's just a damn shame !

Only you can tell if your clothes feel good and allow you to move freely. But from your pics it looks like there's an X at the waist, pulling at the crotch and tightness in the sleeve and thigh.

Lapels also do not lay cleanly, very U shaped and not V. The shoulder are also. Little messy, looks narrow and it bunching behind the collar on your shoulders being very square and not extending far enough for your large arms. Still much better then previous fits!

I actually really like your style, so I hope you dont take all the comments too personally. You are the perfect candidate for MTM as I think one of the bigger issues for you is shoulder slope and the fact that you have forward shoulders. It would be interesting to see you try on an off the rack 42 to see if alleviates any of the issues in the chest and shoulder area. Of course, a 42 may present other issues in other areas, but again, it would be interesting. Thanks for the photos, they are fun.

Robo-pose for those who enjoy that sort of thing

Love the Jacket and that tie combo, nice touch on the pin plus you kinda look like a young Colin Firth which is always a plus when it comes to suits.

 

How do you like your Double Monks by the way? I'm looking to get one from Meermin however am having some doubts about their lasts after getting the Elton Toe Cap - seem a bit extra bulky than Edmonds or Loakes.

I wear a scarf and tie all the time. Just worry about keeping my neck warm, any way will do.

Here's a poor iPhone pic of the full suit:



Regular old AE black cordovan gunboats for that boring American look:


Dude, are you just the EXACT same size as me or what? Scary.

I wore more than 144 "outfits" yesterday (if a different square = different outfit), but I happened to be in this combination when I went out to lunch (an outfit is only truly worn once it crosses the threshold)

It's definitely an improvement.

I think the camera needs to be a bit higher correct? Colors look pretty close to accurate as well.

 

 

Tie/jacket combo is great.  Correct on the camera.
