    You didn't listen to me when I told you the same thing. But I realize I'm probably not as persuasive as your wife. :)

    Timo, I am always shocked at how well the SuitSupply stuff fits you. That looks *great*.

    I think it is snug in the waist, which is an easy fix. Something is going on with the trousers though. Either it is a balance issue, or they are too slim. They don't drape well.

    Suit Supply trousers have a terribly slim leg on all cuts, from what I can see in their garment measurements. I think it must be hard to get a decent drape given that fact.

    Wearing a lot of white shirts until I can afford to buy some blue ones. Thoughts on this combination? I feel like this tie pattern is pushing it in terms of formality, but then so is the white shirt. I also feel like the color makes it less of a suit-only tie.

    It sucks that blue shirts are more expensive than white ones. :angry:

    I like it all but the square to be honest. Something with more color would benefit you. Off the cuff, I'd say green or blue would fit this combination well. If the square is either already, then I'd go with a lighter, brighter version.

    YRR, the tie is OK with the shirt, but not the best choice, a navy would have been better there, but then again a grey odd jacket is hard to deal with as it is. The square is bad, unfortunately.

    White shirts in my closet are cheaper than blue shirts in Brooks Brothers. [​IMG] Actually, maybe this is just me being picky, but it's hard to find really cheap blue shirts that are a reasonable shade.

    The square is navy, not black, but a lighter one might have been interesting. A big green paisley would be really cool, but I don't have one of those.

    PB, for you, is the square an issue of color, or lack of pattern?

    No, boychik, you're just genetically predisposed to knowing the best value in the marketplace, and sharing that knowledge with others :satisfied:

    Bad: There seems to bit a lack of material in the shoulders/arms which is giving the arms a slightly tight look, although your left arm looks almost flawless. The chest/waist area is odd; it's tight in some areas and not tight enough in others--the drape is not nice, so it's making lots of creases (this could all be due to how you're standing). I would suggest getting a less-tailored suit and trousers--they don't drape well (thank God they aren't too short, a la your usual)--then taking it to a tailor who'll give you the right waist suppression, to give a smooth finish. That nit-picking being said, it's a nice suit, and the faults are only minor. You certainly like that colour blue; I think every suit I've seen you in +1 has been that exact shade! :p Rocking the Italian look, too. :)
