    It really does look like an erect, uncircumcised penis involved in some sort of horrible bondage accident.

    Thanks for the comment! appreciate it. This is a mantua model drop 6. My chest is 41 waist 33 (actual measurements) but I usually wear 40 or 42r jackets and size 34 trousers. I have what I would call an extremely amateur athletic build. I have moved away from the more tapered coats to more standard drop 6 because the feedback I have received, which I agree with, is that severe waist suppression looks odd given that I have more muscular, wider hips and thighs. The jacket is very nice and I have found corneliani to fit my body rather well, though their models vary widely in terms of chest width and waist measurements even in similar sizes. Hope this helps!

    Thanks for the shoe rec. I will check it out!

    My first contribution. I recognize my knot is disheveled. What is the consensus on the collar (besides it looking lop-sided thanks to my shoddy photography)? Can't tell if I should size up without looking sloppy

    ellsbebc - looks good. Collar is nice. I think you could benefit from slightly wider lapels (think of a line that lands on your shoulder line at the mid-point between collar and shoulder seam, as a good rule of thumb) and I tend to prefer a bit more swoop in the shape of the fronts and quarters. But everything fits and the outfit is nice and conservative.

    Agreed on both accounts. Copped this BB Fitzerald off ebay for $110; no complaints from me as I build my wardrobe. I prefer significantly more open quarters; still learning that a jacket can accentuate my frame without having thin lapels

    Re: your thumbs up spoo, maybe a green grenadine or a green linen tie?I was also thinking a steel blue tie would be nice, like the kent wang grenadine in steel blue.

    Señor Crust, that would be a great explanation for my thoughts if only it were true...

    Ed, you make a good point. Perhaps if we add a necrophiliac element it will explain the bloodlessness?
