    A higher rise would help lengthen a shorter guy, as long as there is relative proportion to his physique. If said subject has a short torso, he might want to stay away from a high waist (but that is true of all folks with a short torso).

    A high waist on an overweight man is a bit more tricky. I suppose it could work if attempted with a dark trouser and and full leg paired with a chunky shoe to anchor the body. It could also be a disaster if a light color trouser is worn which might draw attention to the lower abdomen area (isn't that called a fumpa?).

    I think 12' is the perfect rise. High but not to high! Epaulet's trousers are a must : - )

    Good luck!

    See? That wasn't so hard, was it? :D

    It's not my favorite shirt, so I won't defend it too much. The categorical statement that it doesn't go with tweed does strike me as an overstatement, though.

    I will not have the tie disparaged, sir. Handbags at dawn!

    could not get a fit pic i was happy with, today, so this will have to suffice.

    also, i think i have to let down my right jacket sleeve a tad, and the shirt is new and the sleeve a little long, need to fix that too.

    i await "rise" comments

    I think they look great and flattering, but most people would think they look even more old-mannish than the same pants on a thin dude.

    What I really hate are high rise flat fronts on a bigger man, no matter how well cut! Front arse is not a good look...

    Awesome stitchy! However, I think by letting the sunlight hit you directly in the front we might get a better representation about the fit, just my $0.02. Of course, I love the shoes, but I would like them even better with a bit more polish on the toes.

    my college room mate went into genetic anthropology but I doubt that even she could explain the apparent evolutionary gap that seems to be existent between the two of us. maybe you are the missing desideratum linking us to other great apes.

    If this is the only thing you can say about this outfit I think you have some learning to do.

    stitchy, I prefer suit pants with greater foot openings, covering the first 1-2 holes of the shoe.

    Also, wtf is going on between the two of you clapey and stitch, seems you guys need to calm yourselves down a bit...

    I got to wear a suit yesterday for the first time in a month and all you guys get is a crappy bathroom pic due to lack of lighting anywhere else. I am sorry haha. Shirt is a blue stripe, tie purple/burgundy grenadine. Next time I suit up I will take a much better picture...good to post again tho.

    Left sleeve looks long but it is the angle.

    thanks. the problem is, if the sunlight is direct, it can wash out the colors. its a tough game the whole lighting thing, especially with an iphone.


    CLAPEY!!! you know i was only saying those things out of love right? i was not upset about the great rise debate, just messing around. i would not speak like that here in a serious way, only with someone that i assumed understood i was not even remotely serious.



    i do not prefer greater foot opening. see above for clap explanation, i thought it was clear that i was just messing with him for being right and having nicer hair than me.
