    A rare, very rumply full-length, taken on the fly after spending the day sweltering on the surface of the sun:

    Pardon the quality -- there's a reason I don't post more full-lengths.

    No button-down either. Shocking, I know. But chelseas would not showcase the Tradly shortness of the khakis.

    Clearly because it is the only reliable cure for a severe case of jaundice.

    I'm glad to see the continued deployment of the white shirt with brown sport coat.

    I like the jacket fit. To me, this is what waist position and button stance should look like. It's way too high on most RTW jackets which is kinda unflattering for most people... Sleeves seem to have just the right amount of fullness, too. There's very minor lapel bowing but it doesn't look bad.
    Pants are a different story. They don't seem to be draping well, but that's amazingly difficult to get right on a RTW/online MTM garment, so it doesn't look that bad really.

    Somebody please educate me. What is this lovely SC fabric called? Is it crowfoot? Diamond weave? What?

    Perhaps "jolly" was a slight exaggeration but I think there's a world of difference between, for example, the austerity of a mid-grey suit/white BD shirt/black shoes/black knit tie and something frivolous like navy linen suit/pale blue shirt/macclesfield-esque tie/oxblood shoes. Both are conservative looks but the first is glum and the second cheerful.

    Hmm, not feeling this, sorry.

    I feel that there's a lot of conflict here that confuses the effect being projected. On a pure colour level, the jacket and trousers don't play nicely together and the tie is too dark for both. Texturally, the jacket looks chunky which "feels" heavy and warm (I realise it's an open weave; I'm talking about the perception I feel on seeing it), and the trousers also look a bit fuzzy-textured and therefore warm to the eye, but you're (I think) sockless which doesn't go with those textures. The square is both too formal and I don't think the colour works either.

    The shirt/trouser/shoe (assuming you add some socks) combination is nice though IMO. Normally, I think your colour-choices play very nicely together, in quite a bright/exciting way, so forgive the lengthy feedback. It just seems a real change from your usual standard to me.

    HF, solid fit as usual....one thing ill say...youre consistant. well done my friend!

    Ah well, thank you Derek. I feel confident that I'll decide to wear something deliciously bizarre and controversial again very soon though, never fear! [​IMG]

    Sorry, I know this is your subjective opinion, but I am a graphic designer (freelance), and, as far as I can tell, it's, actually, a really harmonious colour set. I think, for ianGP to pick that out by eye is, almost, remarkable! :) I think this is one of your best colour harmonies yet, ianGP; I have found some of your older choices a bit garish!

    See: colour wheel.

    As for fabric choice, the smooth, matte of the trousers sits well with the chunkier weave of the SC, IMO.

    Gala Tux, not sure about the pant length, might be a touch long. Hard to tell by my stupid pose, but it was down to the wire and no time for last minute adjustments. I took sartorial license and did a vented jacket. Other than that I think I followed the rules relatively closely without being all nazi about it. [​IMG]

    ^ Looks likes there's excess material in the arms--but I can't tell 100%, because of arms raised--and, yes, the trousers need hemming an inch or more. Aside from that, it looks like a nice fit! :) I, especially, like the lapel width, button stance and bow-tie!

    (I'm not, entirely, sure what that pulling in the chest is, but it may be harmless! :p)
