Prom. I was on a very strict budget, and was firing up the advice section with all my questions. Thank you Murlsquirl and LA guy for the advice. 

1. Ralph Lauren (Polo line) Black suit

2. Modern tailor white trial shirt (Fit me extremely well, just need to shorten the arm length a tad, as it is bunching up.

3. Cole Haan oxford dress shoes.

4. Tie bar white linen pocket square 

5. Brooks brothers satin black tie (forgot which line, I believe it was 1818? Not sure, a friend who used to work there let me borrow it.)

I honestly don't think it's too shabby for my first time wearing a suit, but let me know what you guys think. And don't worry, you can critique it as much as you like, still new to this haha.

During the course of out visit, we met prominent dignitaries from signatory countries and we had a mutual cordial exchange.

We also visited the Red Cross museum where we enjoyed a humanitarian symposium disposed by Monsieur. Laurent Feller, who is the 'deployment team leader' in the case of emergency i.e. humanitarian crisis, war outbreak or natural disaster (like the cataclysmic disaster that occurred in Haiti in 2010) in which case, Mr. Laurent and his red cross team have 24 hrs to intervene, so as to dispense aid and support to the victims of such unforeseen circumstances. In the very last day of our stay in Geneva, we decided to organise a boat cruise to add that extra bit of memorabilia to our stay in GENEVA.

Please be indulgent with these guys as none of them is a fashion aficionado but everyone of them is a brain box in the legal field. Please excuse me for the copious pictures wink.gif

Sculpture of Ralph Bunch (1904-1971) - Diplomat & Nobel prize Winner (1950) UN undersecretary for special Political AffairsUnited Nations Undersecretary Generals for special Political Affairs The Council Chamber - Hosts The Conference on Disarmament. The message conveyed by the various murals is one of faith, justice, intelligence, hope, solidarity, peace, and technical, scientific and social progress. But the paintings have a very ‘realist’ tone. On the painting about social progress one can find black slaves, about to be liberated. A white man, presumably Abraham Lincoln, oversees the whole thing. On the painting about peace, one can find five men and a bow of peace. One can also find two ‘realist’ paintings: one depicting the conquerors of war (probably the First World War), carrying a heavy burden that signifies their dead. Next to that, one can find the conquered, shaking their fists to the sky, crying for revenge. This last painting is particularly striking, knowing that the League did not prevent the outbreak of the Second World War.

First of all I apologize to all of those who now are going to complain that I did not hide photos in a reply, I made this reply from my iPad and I dont know how to hide pictures when they appear as urls only...

Great pictures and good to see you in my backyard. Unfortunately I was travelling myself, it would have been interesting to meet otherwise. I am the permanent Swedish representative to the WTO so it's right up my alley. Maybe next time!

No worries. Another occasion will certainly come by to meet. Geneva is a replica of Paris but in a smaller version. We had a beautiful moment and people are nice over there smile.gif

Apology not accepted. biggrin.gif You can use the @ to respond directly to him without quoting the post. You can also delete the pics in the html. It usually says img. Or just delete everything between the words quote. Or spoiler stuff. Lots of options.

Not bad.  The jacket fits you decently.  The biggest issue I see is the divoting and curving at your the shoulder.  The shoulders are too wide for your frame.  In my opinion this is one of the first things to check for when buying/trying on a jacket.  Most other things (not all) can be fixed by a good tailor.  I think the button stance is also too high.  The waist and sleeves look good.  The pants look fine.  They have a good break.  Not too short or too long.  I'm not a fan of the shoes.  They are not oxfords, but bluchers because they have a open lacing system.  Oxfords would have been better here as in my opinion.  Good job.  I hope you continue to post.

Friday.  

 

 

 

New stuff.  PRL scarf and Banana Republic jacket.  The buttons are very oddly placed on the jacket.  Can I add one in between and have the other two closed up?
