    Kappelan - you lost me with the light jeans and black loafers there... :-(

    Dig - don't think it matters, or that it can be controlled (like the shoulder stripe pattern matching issue). I may be wrong though.
    Most tailors I have used or seen working match the front part of the collar to the top of the lapel or the backside of the collar to the back. This works better with some patterns (both cloth and paper) than with others. Some do both, which involves a lot of ironing work.

    The egg looks great, but they seem to have stolen your bacon and replaced it with lord knows what?

    Yeah, brown probably would've worked better. Love your blog by the way, nice to see you posting here again.

    is there a thread here for business casual dress... tie optional and warmer climates? I feel the title of this one suggests other than the typical 2pc, 3pc, sport coat outfits that I regularly see here. I feel out of place as my office is as described in my first few sentences. I often feel under dressed for this thread as well as the CBD tread that was started this year.

    Spoo,

    I really like those shoes. I am looking to get a pair that are similar - perhaps not suede. Where did you get these?

    Polo Redway by C&J. Check out eBay, a pair or so pops up every now and then.

    Aiight. Before you all fire away, a few simple notes - this suit is one of two newly tailored, not taken to the dry cleaner yet (literally picked up the day of the shot). I like the shirt but NOT with this suit. I haven't been able to find a pocket square, yet. I will be wearing french cuffs ideally, if I can find a fitted shirt between now and next week's wedding. The photographer, Mrs. Q, is not quitting her day job. [​IMG] I am not good at self-posing. [​IMG] Haven't bought a suit in 15 years, haven't bought a SC in 6 or 7. I have NO idea how to correct the collar/lapel gap.

    The suit is actually navy but it was very overcast and no respectable amount of color tweaking would make it appear anything but charcoal. Getting ready for a wedding - I still have a few days to do more shopping.

    Lay it on me.

    - you are getting there but IMO your watch let's you down. I'm not saying you need some fancy luxury brand, just something cleaner
    Thanks for the advice, PG ... I think. *[​IMG] Looking around for the sarcasm icon*

    On the one hand, I agree that my Citizen is bulky enough that it might be more appropriate for weekend wear than for suits and jacket/tie combos. On the other hand, I've noticed that more than a few WAYWRN Big Timers go to work wearing watches that seem more appropriate for scuba diving. I'm not namin' any names here, but one member in particular comes immediately to mind.

    Not the best pic, I know, but you can just see a green-bezeled version of Big Ben peeking around his forearm:

    Nothing to butcher here. Who made that sweet blazer?

    [/spoiler]Shirt sleeves and jacket sleeves need to be shortened. I'd have used a V-neck sweater instead of a crew. Can't say much about the colors based on this photo.

    To my eye, it appears that the tie is fighting with the shirt.

    Epic disclaimer! Very impressive, Q.

    Lay it on me.
    Okay, here goes: "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar."
