CHET B ,  him hating my fits is a joke because his tie knot is wrong, his jacket doesn't fit. the top hat is too costume like. so, not out of context, he hated my tie knot and jacket fit etc.  and to top it off,  he says he is a teacher of style/menswear! he is like the scholars who taught that the world is flat, expert (so to speak) maybe.  correct, no.  
 

if other members wore the exact same fit, they would get a congratulations.........

 

edited to play nice, unlike others.........

Question though: why are you wearing blue jeans with an otherwise decent outfit? Doesn't do it for me, sorry.

I'm in the camp that jeans with #menswear on top is a good look. Carry on.

Correct me if I'm wrong, isn't that the Zegna label from the 80's?

I knew I was doing something wrong - squat so much that it is difficult to find pants that fit whilst neglecting shoulders biggrin.gif Always something to work on!

Four words: odd pants, odd jackets and maybe six words + odd vest!

Quick shout out to amadar for giving me a very fair price on an astounding Zegna Su Misura piece. I now have a Navy-ish blazer that fits like a glove, a very sight alteration in the arms and I will be in eahven. If you find any more of Mr. Green's Su Misura pieces you have a buyer in me!

 

Fit pics to come once it's steamed.

I think a pair of well-fitting chinos would improve this look quite a bit.

My shoulder workout consists of flipping through a couple hundred hangers of clothes, especially on the suits and coats. Feel the burn!smile.gif
