Yes thrifted. Maybe a hair long but I ain't sweating it. My first Kiton piece.

Perhaps but the fabric is casual enough and the horn buttons contrast well so to each their own.

Thanks @ericgereghty. It's NSM in Fox flannel.

The tie might have mitigated some of this but all you notice when you look at it is how odd it looks with those wide lapels. The overall affect is drab and uninteresting. TheoProf can do better. 


Agree in the case of TheoProf. The strong extended shoulders look disproportionate with his long neck and seemingly slim build.

@Kent Wang 's observation about my shoulder size versus what appears to be a slim build is due having a larger frame than my neck size would suggest. The 300 push-ups I do every day probably add to this effect. However, I agree that the shoulders on that sportcoat are not optimal. I really love the overall fit and fabric of the jacket and can't bring myself to drop it from the rotation. The shoulders are actually highly structured but very lightly padded if that makes any sense.

You'll get over that. :)

You're leaving San Francisco? :)

I like the fit, but the breast pocket hangs very low in my eyes

It's almost like we should have a separate thread to discuss just this topic

Have you had a look at NMWA's S/S lineup?

From yesterday. The indoor lighting doesn't really capture the burnt orange color of the tie.

I really like everything here except the pattern on the jacket.  I wish the jacket was solid.  Pattern overload.  The green windowpane in particular really throws things off for me.  I see the green in the square, but still.

I still don't understand why noods thinks there's anything wrong with that suit. Sleeves and right shoulder could be a hair better, but it looks pretty damn good.
