Timeless in the best sense, CP.

Love that jacket and the colors of the fit! Did you have any waist suppression done at the tailor and is there any possibility of letting it out just a smidge? I could be wrong but it seems a just a tiny bit tight in the waist.

The Eidos quarters might be playing tricks with me though so i hope others that know better might chime in.

@Chaconne I had the sleeves shortened and the buttons replaced with smoked mother of pearl, no waist suppression. Next time I have it on I'll see if it seems snug.

#36. Same suit as last time. The trousers are cut a little slimmer than I would prefer, and with a lower rise. Cucinelli are "fashion-forward", I guess.

 

Apart from that, I love the cut and drape of this suit.

That suit looks great on you minus the pulling on the inside of the thigh. Anyway to let it out a bit?

Letting out his leg (unbending it) would do the trick smile.gif

You're both right. Like I said, the one and only fault of this suit is the slim cut of the trousers. I checked - both inseam and outseam have precious little spare fabric. An expert alterations tailor might be able to squeeze another 1 cm width out of the trouser legs - I don't think that's worth the bother (plus you never know, it might hang funny after that).

 

It is what it is. I love this suit, and it's very practical for the Sydney summer heat.

The regular Malvern has a different medallion on the toe. Did you have those MTO'd?

No. I bought them off the shelf from Khaki's of Carmel. I don't know the provenance of them, but I recall Jim saying he ordered them with this color and patina added.

This is nice, especially the shoes; where from?

I also like the navy, but it would be particularly good if your hair was dark (I don't know if it is or isn't). Then, tie and hair would frame the face. If not, the tie is the only dark focus point of the outfit and probably draws too much attention.

Thanks you Sander, shoes are from Carmina through Skoaktiebolaget.

post #32669 of 43974

Cox, I like it. Needs darker shoes IMO, but really strong nonetheless.

Sorry, just getting back online with morning coffee after snowy commute. Totally missed the Outlook joke, though!
