    I live off student loans and a small stipend, hence why I usually bargain shop...these would be full price purchases which I rarely do.

    I sold all my solid suits because they no longer fit due to working out. I want to either get high quaility OTR (corneliani, borrelli, and caruso fit me well) or MTM like Kent Wang or this tailor in Michigan that CP got some excellent fits from. So this would build up my solid suit collection again.

    As you can see in most of my pix, my shoes are meh. I have AEs as they are comfortable for me and my feet are rather wide so I am not sure c&j lasts would even fit me.

    Either one is a big investment and I would likely be happy with both. If the C&J don't fit, I would likely try another brand before I decided.

    I am sure C&J would fit you, I have a very wide feet as well and they feels fine.
    Brave decision on selling all your old suits.

    I wouldn't call it brave..the lapels were bowing out like crazy :nodding:

    I got some nice stuff with the money I got back though, I don't regret it. I just want to get full canvas solid suits from now. Quality over quantity.

    Better--but the jacket is still too long IMO; it makes it looks like your legs are shorter than your body. I think you should be able, to grab the bottom of the jacket without excess material. Tie is nicer, and PS is nice addition. Trousers look a little baggy, and don't give me the 'I'm large' shit--objection!

    (Let me guess: There is a Smart Car parked between those two cars? :p)

    I don't think you are wrong most of the time but your delivery is very obnoxious and rude.

    It is? I didn't mean it to be; I don't want to offend anyone--especially in stiches (as I like him)--but this is the way I type. Reading things on the internet can be autistic-feeling at times (to be glib/flippant about autism).

    That's pretty nice, Stitches. Plus, I think you've got me beat in the beard sweepstakes.

    ^ Shape of the quarters not my steez. Would look better if you had them recut to be more open

    Also, I don't know why, but I've always found navy jacket/beige pants to look better than beige jacket/navy pants.

    Just so that you know, by kind of cool I meant pretty damn awesome, regardless of the maker.
