    Guys - PLEASE spoiler the pics when you quote. It would be so much more pleasant and practical to only see new pics when we scroll the thread, rather than multiple reposts of the same pics.

    I would say a wool knit would be perfect, even a cotton flannel one. Silk would look off with the cord i think. Great look tho, I agree.

    Ian I would recommend getting something with less structure in the shoulders. Everything comes off boxy and too big, that and your jacket as a whole might be a size too big.

    [​IMG] the return of the much loved/hated bathroom shot
    [​IMG] (this pic was pre-alterations .. but i barely touched the jacket. just shortened sleeves and added buttons and slight waist suppression. let the pants out in waist and seat)

    bb golden fleece fitzgerald cut navy wool suit (thanks to steve smith)

    i'm getting closer to finding the proper fit for myself
    this jacket is the right length and does not flare out at the hips like most of my other jackets do
    the lapel is a good width
    and button stance is definitely better by being lower than my bb milano cut
    i think i'm almost there

    What is this flashy shit? :D




    Yup.




    Navy knit, and this would have killed. Or, a button-down collar might have helped. Sweet jacket.




    Good shit, doc. I can no longer keep silent on this next point, however. Your knots are weak. Every time you rock a nice combo, I get to the knot, and it's just :facepalm:




    As noted by others, coat is too long. There may be a brand out there that with a cut which suits your size, but you haven't found it yet. The combo here is nice, but the fit is just off. Maybe MTM?

    You're at the office quite late, aren't you? In which case, removing tie is acceptable.

    this looks really damn good romeo. I think we are about the same size so I must ask, how do you find the shoulders on the GF fitz? I have never tried one on. I prefer the made in Italy BB shoulders on the milano and fitzgerald (they are def. shaped different between the US and Italian makes).

    this golden fleece is made in US using italian wool
    i really like the shoulders on these
    strong but not too strong
    i have the BB fitz glen plaid but the shoulders fit a little differently
    these fit better for sure
    i think my bb milano's shoulder is more padded .. it's definitely more "shaped" than this

    overall, this suit feels lighter... and just hugs the body better
    i'll post all my BB suit pics together so you can see the comparison better

    The color of the jacket really makes that paisley work. In terms of fit, though, I don't really like the jacket. Can't put my mind on exactly what it is I don't like.
