    Genuinely difficult to choose between Slewfoot and SpooPoker.

    In contrast, is MBreinin's golden jacket seems to be a terrible fit.
    It is too long by current SF standards,
    and is very unflattering to his figure. A pear or bell shape is suggested.
    It just looks completely wrong, for reasons I can't describe.

    I don't get the fascination with Parker's jacket.
    Looks like a $5 Salvation Army jacket.
    It looks like he's a teacher or car salesman on a 1972 Brady Bunch episode.
    Does anyone actually dress like that?


    NODB has a great casual look.
    Spoo steps it up a notch, with a perfectly fitting jacket.
    Slewfoot looks "vintage". Like he should be in a Jane Austen movie!

    Thanks guys! Glad you liked the suit. Some great looks here that really show the versatility of corduroy.

    I've even been considering getting a tan/khaki colored corduroy suit with patch pockets one of these days.

    I'd buy a car from Parker any day. Great look. My vote goes to TTO because he has more square feet of corduroy.

    I admit this comment initially gave me some pause. If it had been posted by someone who had demonstrated, through his own posts, even a rudimentary grasp of the concepts of personal style and fit, I would still be concerned. Since it was posted by someone who has demonstrated the exact opposite, I am nonplussed.

    Alan and Slewfoot both put together excellent looks, but TTO takes it. As NOBD did, I give it to the man in the DB.

    Nice work everyone, thanks for contributing and big props out to Spoo for his organising, again!
    Mike, I think your coat looks ace, it's a touch long, but you know this, whatcha-gonna-do, don't mess with the length it'll only upset the balance of the coat. You've got the opposite problem to me, where I'm 7" taller than you so most of my coats look short unless I get them made and even then when I don't pay attention!

    With this post, I think you have been fully assimilated into SFdom.

    It's too long, and too big. Something is way off, I'm just not good enough to pinpoint it. Maybe it's the 3 button stance and short lapel giving you a massive torso. But, don't take my word for it, anyone here can corroborate. Also, look up "Tu quoque" The jacket takes away from the fantastic shirt, tie, and shoes. The green cords are so out of style, they might be back in. While I'm nitpicking, does anyone else feel the modern pocketsquare print doesn't go with the classic patterns/checks of the rest of the outfit? That said, I'm willing to go head to head in a photo showdown, and let SF vote.

    The jacket is a tad long. That is where it ends. It fits in the chest, the waist, the sleeves are not bunching and the shoulders are perfect. Maybe you are used to seeing me wear jackets that are borderline too small. This one fits. If it were an inch shorter, it would be even better.

    The pants were literally purchased new, at retail, last week, they are F/W collection Polo. They are simple wide wale cords, they are never out of style. Now, had I cuffed them with 2 inchers, or wore my Mabitex full nut crushers, maybe you would have an argument.

    As far as your adventure in Latin, you have repeatedly demonstrated that you struggle with even the most basic concepts of what fits and what looks good on you, so much that you have become a punchline on SF. Why would I accept your extremely harsh criticism when you have failed to demonstrate even once that you can assemble a good fit, or that you are even in touch with what a good fit is?

    You want a "Dance off?" Go ahead, post something you think you look good in. I have 700 pictures of myself I can pick from. I won't even have to put together a new fit.

    I don't consider myself an expert in Sartorial matters (far from it, actually). I have received my fair share of criticism, most of it deserved, and I try to take it to heart and make improvements. I draw the line with a blind squirrel who has never found a nut.

    Let's also keep in mind that you attacked Parker with the same zeal, and his fit has been universally praised.

    Mike
