^ I like the careful posing more than I like the suit.

Looks very careful. Its rather hard taking pictures of yourself though.

The length of the jacket looks terrific. It just seems that non-European DBers wear their jackets too long -heck, they look like kilts, sometimes. Very nice.

I expected to move the sleeves up from the shoulder and hem the pants, but decided on doing more after looking at it in the mirror with the tailor. Taking approximately an inch off the bottom of the jacket (I know, I know, I'm a little scared, I can't lie!), bringing in the waist, and moving the button stance slightly to have the outer lapel lay more flat against chest.

I know this might sound like a huge overhaul, but I'm thinking (and hoping) it's going to be worth it. Here's a shot of the suit from the ebay pic. I didn't take any pics of the suit in person, but can't wait to update with a few pics of the end result. Thanks SF....

 

 I found a nice looking DB sport coat but the outside lapel was sticking out too much. Can this be fixed by moving the button(s)? Other wise the jacket fit pretty good.

Also a very nice combination with the white shirt and the grey tie.

 Probably too tight and uncomfortable. He looks like he can't breathe.

Lapels too heavy and large for that frame.
