Oh my God I just found out that the forum has a 'block' feature and you can hide people's posts!

Praise the 21st century.

If I could figure out how to use that I'd only see about 3 people's posts.

Kidding folks.

Spandexter - you've posted some great fits the past few days, mate. Quite envious!

 

While there are some details out (collar gap, sleeves look like they are a bit baggy (?) and the pocket square is a bit too pedestrian for my tastes) the outfit is miles ahead of anything I could put together.

 

:)

Hit the 'show spoiler' link. One of the photos.

 

Could be angles, could be posing, could be any number of honest things negating any potential issues.

Thanks. The tiny collar gap is due to the misplaced shirt collar more than the actual jacket (my wife isn't the best photographer in the world and after shot 436 I was running late and things weren't quite where they should have been). Good pick up on the sleeves. Although they may appear baggy the rippling is actually caused by the sleeve pitch being quite unsuited to my arms. I've thought about correcting it but have been too lazy to actually do something about it.

Having a look at pictures of your own and picking up all the issues makes you realise just how good some of the fits are on some of the posters here.

I've gotta say that I wouldn't call that a collar gap. Seems like a pretty harsh critique in my opinion. Looking good Spandexter.

It wasn't a critique. Your reading comprehension missed the oodles of compliments.

 

Since he then elaborated explaining it was more angle than anything else that clearly renders the backhand comment irrelevant.

 

Cheers.

Collar Gap is usually used to refer to the gap between the collar of a jacket and the back of the neck of the wearer. It is also, at times, used to refer to that gap between jacket collar and neck continuing around to the side of the neck.

I think matt might have been referring to the fact that the collar points did not sit under the jacket lapels.

That is a function that is directly related to what sort collar one is wearing, the spread of the collar, peak lengths, if the jacket is done up or not, the cut of the jacket, and preferences. It appears that on this forum that the preference of some that the collar peaks be under the jacket collar /lapel has mutated into another hard a fast forum rule. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Fussell gave it its most common name - Prole Gap - referring to the ill fitting jackets the US Working Classes wore.

The illustration below shows what it is - but the example looks anything but a Prole. Its very common in USA even amongst the very wealthy and fashionable - although one could argue they are still proles!

Thanks for the clarification. I had assumed that it was a hard and fast rule based on the consistent feedback around that exact situation!

post #24989 of 58046
Thanks fxh. I was referring to your first definition of collar gap. I am a big advocate of the collar points sitting under the jacket lapels. However, I can't say I alway meet this standard myself!

PoP, thanks for the feedback and I'm sorry that I didn't see it and respond earlier.

I was actually a little more reserved yesterday, as when I wear the tie it's usually with a blue-and-white, Bengal stripe shirt with white collar and cuffs and a DB suit with wide lapels!
