    You're fast becoming my favourite poster in this thread. Your outfits are always so effortless - a fine example of how often, less is more.

    The shape of his jackets always looks fantastic in the torso shots he posts, but it's hard to tell that close up.

    Jason, the forum has spoken. Full-length shot please!

    That's my point, Corb.

    I think it looks pretty good as it is; and unless you have a tailor who knows WTF she or he is doing, why play around too much with trivialities? People often quibble about individual elements of fit, without considering the effect of each proposed change on the whole aesthetic.

    This, to me, is risky.

    So how far do we really need want to go?

    You know, man, your clothes all really look great and I'm impressed that at such a young age you're successfully balancing the right amounts of saturated colours and neutrals, solids with textures, etc. without overdoing it. You're dressing sharp without looking like a dandy, and I think you're mixing youthful and grown-up elements in a good ratio.

    That said, you have the kind of face where if I saw you on the street I'd probably smack the shit out of you.

    LOL!

    I feel like the whole wardrobe is too tapered, it looked extremely uncomfortable, then again I wouldn't know. Can you raise your arms out, or extent your legs without stretching the fabric? It also makes the head looked larger. Then again, these are personal preference, but I don't see how anyone would want to look like a bubble head and overly tapered leg opening with clown shoes. In terms of proportion, the width of your head is 60% of your shoulder width. Apart from that, I do think the color coordination is fantastic. Keep up the good work! Cheers.

    Thank you for educating me. :) I especially needed to know that because the English are my main source of inspiration in Style & History.

    Thanks all, for your comments and suggestions. All noted and considered. Tomorrow being Friday, Im not sure how to continue an austere trend faced with a much anticipated weekend.

    Also, the issue of shortening the trousers begs the question: how wide is the cuff?

    I await the day when I read the use of "beg the question" used incorrectly less than five times. Read a beginner logic book.

    I really liked the blue houndstooth PS with that outfit, pB, but I still see your point. Which of my 3 green squares would have met with your approval? (Other members are invited to share their opinions, as well.)
