    Noodles, Who makes the suit in the bottom photo. I like the way the shoulders fit you.

    That is E.Zegna. Thanks for the compliment but it is one size small for me.

    Chest is small, not the shoulders.

    @jrd617 I haven't had experience with Septieme Largeur but I have bought from their lower end Markowski brand. I can easily say they were one of the worst pairs of shoes I've ever bought. The shoes were clearly sprayed to colour and developed uncoverable blemishes in the toe box. Worse than that the service was abominable. French is my second language and the gentleman in charge cared more to correct a term I used than address the issue (I said cobbler instead of tanner....as if there a store anywhere that is exclusive to either).

    All in all that left me with very little confidence in their premium brand. Despite the nice option of custom patina etc. If you can't even provide a half decent product at 200 euros (I was expecting maybe Meermin quality or Loding) then what am I to expect at 300? Stay away.

    RTC - Rust is the color you are looking for.

    @The Noodles, at least by the end of 2014 you will finally have a navy solid and grey solid that fits. I am glad you are getting the navy birdseye Formosa.

    Hey does anyone use pinterest? I've started an account but I'm still figuring it out. Is there a list of styleforum members with accounts? Same as tumblr? A lot of the menswear stuff on there are kinda dreadful and just product advertising, so some more SF approved pinners would be appreciated.

    Oh mine is "isohei" http://www.pinterest.com/isohei/

    Be nice. I want at least ten followers before I die.

    I mean, ties are stuffy, so the reverse of having as much of your chest shown as possible must be the coolest thing possible right?

    I have no experience with Markowski, but do have three pairs of SL. I find them to be a good shoe for the price especially if you want custom patina. Don't expect Carmina quality, but you are not paying for it either. They offer a lot of variety especially for driving loafers.

    My custom job. A bit flashy, but wear when I am in the mood.

    What are you asking about? The coat? If so, I don't think black is the best color, but hardly an abomination.
