    Cheers! Well, it's not a BB it's a Samsung Mezmerise [​IMG] but is has a really nice 5mp camera on it with near full manual functionality. Couple that with a nice vintage camera app and...

    Whew ... I was going to be upset since my BB photos suck so bad, even in FULL sunlight.

    Very nice. I think Spoozy said he is skiing in Austria this week, so now is the time to wear this jacket in peace. [​IMG]

    Had to share this as gregaz brought up Blackberry:

    My twist on what yfyf had yesterday:

    I can get behind everything but the shirt. It looks like a flannel to me (not sure if it is) and to me that just is out of place with the rest...especially considering the size of the plaid.
    +1. A subtler shirt would improve the fit, but it still looks good - this is how to do jeans+jacket.

    How about a muted tie, and standard spread shirt with barrel cuffs and let the suit do the talking?

    Great advice Mike. Advice I plan to follow more often myself. I'm learning a lot combing through this thread. Keep up the great work gents!

    Had that same issue with my old Palm Centro, which is why dug out my old Sony CD Mavica (great Carl Zeiss Lens, lousy storage system...3" CD RWs...slow as fark in saving and transfering.
    But this Android camera is pretty darn good for being part of a phone.

    I still crack up every time a watch that sketch...

    Jacket looks a bit short for you...but as always the colorplay and other fit aspects are great.

    ^Nice fit. LIke the simplicity.

    [​IMG]



    ^Just beautiful.

    [​IMG]

    ^Nice combo, Mike. Coat is beautiful, but after seeing that longer velvet coat on you - I think a little more length helps your proportions (at least in a static photo). I understand your personal preference is for slightly shorter (and it looks great) I just thought I'd add that comment because it instantly came to mind when I saw this coat.

    [​IMG]

    ^Difficult to pull off, but I like the combo with the grey.

    [​IMG]

    ^The jcrew coat is surprisingly very nice.

    [​IMG]

    ^Great photo!

    [​IMG]

    ^I like the pant, coat, and tie combo, but I think the shirt detracts from it. IMO a simple oxford would make this classic. See Conn's look below for an example.

    Not a real outfit, just a suit jacket I liked at the Partenopea stand at the Pitti (so sorry, the tag on the sleeve is no extra Sprezz). Cool guys they are, not throwing me out after they find out that I am going to uni, have neither a business card nor that I'll buy their stuff for any shop. [​IMG]

    That is Mauro Blasi, his family acutally owns Sartoria Partenopea and that is their stand at a trade fair, not a store...

    Looks quite like Stile Latino to me, but could be anything else as well.

    Had no idea. I like SP stuff, just not a fan of the combo he has going on. Very- Miami Beach...

    I have posted some photos of their stuff on my blog, I like them a lot as well, a certain model they made for a Milanese retailer is among the best fitting rtw garmnets for me.
