    Love that swag. Really good combo. Nice lapel roll on the jacket! :slayer:

    Oh I really dislike that picture. I was hungover and I'd been wearing the suit the night before and it certainly shows. Yep it's the same suit. I have narrowed the lapels since the picture without my glasses on. I'm actually thinking of making it a 3 button rather than a 2 roll 3.

    Cool jacket. Can you comfortably walk in these pants, or do you have to do a stiff-legged waddle?

    I thought the way he uses the scarf under the blazer looks awesome. Will try that someday.

    Hehe yes, they are fitted, but the wrinkles are due to the fact that I'm to lazy to press my trousers. They are as I said very fitted, but they are definately not limiting or snug.

    IMHO, Stillig, that falls down just the wrong side of the dandy / over-sprezzed divide. I think it's the scarf that just tips it over, because the jacket is great. And it's usually pretty safe to say that if Hampton likes it, it's probably wrong in some way! [​IMG]

    You made the lapels even more narrow? Not sure that was the right move, but that's not for me to decide. Those are quite some shoulders for a skinny lapel. I think the lapel needs more meat to balance out the shoulder.

    No pocket square, charcoal trousers down below, and cordovan tassels protecting my hobbit feet.

    No offense, but as one of the resident peacocks in here... I have to say this is all kinds of wrong... It is all over the place. They pieces are nice by themselves... but together, combinations are off and jarring... not in a good way, and they are fighting with each other. i would suggest browsing the peacock thread for some inspiration on lethal combinations. As of right now though, unfortunately, it looks like you were dressed by tumblr.

    Thank you, Sir.

    Today, a bit of to-ing and fro-ing outside, winter is firmly over (heading back to 30C already, another 20 to go!), so back to half-lined linen:

    No. Jacket/tie/PS/shirt = nice, use of scarf = awkward (why not put it outside the SC?), pents = painted on, shoes = meh, chain = WTF WERE U THINKERN?!

    I can see your knee bones. This is conclusive proof that the pants are too tight.

    So I tend to post more on the SWD side of the forum, but as many know, I recently got married back in December. I've now gotten the full batch of photographs in my our photographer and figured I'd share these here:

    Menswear shots from the wedding
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Everyone wore their own clothes for the wedding but the ties were all purchased from Kent Wang and gifted to the guys.

    From left to right: Our officiant is standing farthest left and wearing a burgundy grenadine tie. My best man wore an Epaulet suit in “cadet grey” (now discontinued), a glen plaid tie, and Allen Edmonds shoes. I wore a special-order Epaulet (Southwick for Michael Kuhle) suit in charcoal grey flannel, a shepard’s check tie, and Bexley shoes. My wife’s best man (yes, we made a couple non-traditional choices) wore a RLBL suit and a houndstooth tie.

    For anyone considering a MTO suit from Epaulet, I would definitely recommend it. I was really happy with how the charcoal flannel DB came out. Mike had a few such fabrics and I told him to just pick whichever he thought would be best. The one I ended up with has a really fantastic hand and drape, plus while it is properly thick as a flannel fabric should be, it's not so thick that I can't wear it most of the year in LA. The ordering process was really easy, and I liked being able to add features like the ticket pocket and smoke mother of pearl buttons (the latter at Mike's suggestion).

    It was cool too that my best man wore his Epaulet suit. I've got the same one -- this is the old "Desmond" model that was their first foray into sport coats. It's fused, so it's not at the level of quality of the current offerings, but it's a really cool shape that I've always liked -- slightly more British in a couple of ways.
