Dude, spoiler the pics. Cox looks great, as always, but there was literally just a discussion about the need to spoiler posts.

Ahh, thanks. Was just looking at recent images posts...missed that one.

Another option: write a standalone post and "tag" the user, using the @ sign. I believe this works on cell phones...

Thanks very much. The jacket is an obscure brand, "Gulliver Look", which I believe is a low-rent spinoff of Lardini.

 

It was laughably cheap but I'm very happy with it.

I don't even know what those words and numbers mean. So probably not.

It's a camera format. Implies a mirrorless system with the image in the camera's viewfinder (if it has one) being digitally rendered directly from the CCD (image sensor).

 

In SLR (single lens reflex) cameras, a mirror bounces the light up to the viewfinder; it swings out of the way only as the shutter is depressed, allowing the image to impinge on the CCD (or film).

 

Removing the mirror mechanism allows for significant miniaturisation of the entire camera body. However, the shorter distance between the lens and the CCD means that the optics are all different; hence, mirrorless cameras require a completely different set of lenses to SLRs. The lenses also tend to be smaller and lighter.

 

"Micro 4/3" is a particular standard (involving set distances between lens and sensor, and a set size for the sensor) which was jointly developed (if memory serves) by Panasonic and Olympus. There are many other types of mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera now on the market; all the big companies have rushed to bring out their own standard, as there are big bucks to be made by selling their own range of lenses to a "captive" market who have bought into their proprietary system.

 

I myself have been for the past couple of years using a Fujifilm X-T1. I think their lenses are on the whole better than the offerings from Panasonic. Most of my fit pics are snapped with this camera and a Fujinon 35mm f1.4 prime lens, which is a superb piece of glass.

 

 

 

However, I can still get better pics with my Nikon D700 - only problem is, that camera is currently under repair. It's also a great big hefty thing - looks very impressive and professional, but not so practical to lug around.

Thanks! I think I would have to say that I would have chosen perhaps a different tie, a darker one, perhaps with a green/olive element to work with the windowpanes in the jacket. And I'm not so sure about French cuffs in less formal fits, but my wife got me a new pair of cuff links for Father's Day, and I hadn't worn them this week yet, so I threw that in, haha. And, a pocket square may have done well here.

What suggestions would you make?

^Great fit all around.  Like the jacket and the shoes a lot.  I think the doing up all the buttons on the cardigan makes it look stuffy.  I'd undo the top and bottom ones for a more casual look.

Always a sound notion. Despite the damp, I liked this fit a lot.

Really like the tie, Justin. Is that the Francesco Marino? If only the stripes went the right way... :)
