    What acrid said. Also, the tie is too "city"/"formal" or whatever else you want to call it. Something knit would be much better.

    I think a repp stripe would look good with this but the multistripe screams worsted suit to me.

    I can't disagree. I'm really short on ties toward the country end of the spectrum. The "wonkiness" of the lapels hadn't really registered with me. Too wonky even for a decidedly "country" outfit?

    I think he means how the lapels are rolling to the button, which has nothing to do with city/country just fit in general.

    Well in that case it's just a function of arm position related to taking the photo. They look normal in a robopose.

    So, I just got in from my first round of studying for the day and this was waiting for me...
    Behaviorists would say I should delay gratification and open this after my exams to reward myself but, well, I lack the fortitude.
    Borrelli Linen suit. Size 42 (up from my normal 40). Thoughts? I know I may be biased but I am blown away..obviously it needs to be tailored but I think the shape of the jacket suits me well. Would love to hear you guys opinions.

    Also, this is my first linen suit. What kind of shirts and ties does one wear with it? Any recommendations would be great.

    It looks like one lapel is pressed for a 3/2, and the other pressed for a 2. Hence, lapel wonkification.

    If you have a nordstrom rack by you or a neiman marcus last call/saks off fifth, they have some great wool ties in staple colors, shades, and textures(think herringbones, tic weaves, etc). In particular, nordy rack has some great wool BB ties from this last fall and some nice facconable wool paisleys, at least at the one near me. I think something like that would go well with this outfit and they could be had for cheap.

    52 degrees here in the People's Republic of San Francisco. When the afternoon (gale force) winds kick up, it will feel like it's in the 40s.

    FWIW, I think he's correct. Strictly speaking, facts are just theories that are widely believed to be true.

    You mean like how the earth stays between 91 million to 94.5 million miles away from the sun as it makes its yearly elliptical orbit? :sly:
