True, but it is my impression that the Albanians assimilated much more to Turkish culture than did the Serbians. At least that's what the Serbians tell me.

Hmmmm. Complicated... That's one of the stereotypes we (Serbs) like to push. And by Turkish culture we mean some kind of primitivism, which is nonsense. I love our Turkish heritage, in our music, food, language. I believe mix with their genes gave us the most beautiful women in the world, and pretty handsome men :-)

Yeah, 1389 is still a strong subject with many people. Whatever the case, it makes for an interesting mix, as you say. But what about those Gorani women. :smarmy:

I am impressed with your knowledge, and appreciate your interest :-)
Next time I'm in Chicago I'm taking you to some Serbian joint.

I lived in Kosovo for almost a year. Made a lot of friends there. I'm definitely up for some Serbian food next time you are in town!

^^^ I like this better than the last one. Patterns seem to mesh better. BTW, another great poster from the '16 crew.

Thanks Caustic Man.

 

To be honest, i like the other one (http://www.styleforum.net/t/394373/hof-what-are-you-wearing-right-now-part-iv-starting-may-2014/40545#post_8534293) a bit more then this. Here i think it's a bit to much blue. Blue jacket, blue tie, blue pocket square. The brown tie would have maybe been better or a total different color for the tie.

 

And keep in mind the different image/color editing. The last image shows more or less true colors, the first one, well, i changed the contrast and saturation a lot. Changes the mood of the image quite a bit.

It's a lot of blue, yes, but if you are going to overdo it with a color, blue is probably the least offensive.

"I dropped the buttoning point, extended the shoulders, widened the leg at the cuff, and slimmed it at the thigh. All by relatively small amounts (~1cm).

The suits looks great. A few tips based on things I've notice: shorten the jacket by 1.5 inches or so. This will make you look longer/taller and still be a good length. Trim the pants from knee down. This will make you look slimmer and taller. Keep the button stance, but only if you make it 2.5 buttons (an optional 'hidden' third button for cooler days). Otherwise, raise the top button a touch. Add patch pockets with natural shoulders instead of slits.

I think the natural shoulders are a great look. These adjustments will possibly fix the appearance. With regards to the shirt collar, it may benefit you to use a double button to raise the collar. It will work well with the higher knock on the jacket. I wouldn't go too high though.

jcm, you should be flattered. You inspired a three-year lurker to break his/her posting duck.
