    New suit from Maxwell's... comments on fit welcome as alterations are free at local tailor. I think I would like just a bit more waist suppression. Shirtcuffs generally do show with this shirt and suit but not in this pic. Occasion: seeing a magic show.

    It looks like it fits well, but what's that fabric? Also, if you care for comments beyond those requested, lose the tie and fix the pocket square.

    I'd wear a wool/cashmere/linen tie with that suit, not a silk and I would suggest that if you are getting peak lapels, don't skimp on them. I don't like the way skinny notch lapels look and skinny peaks are worse, for my tastes. Also peaks on a fabric like that is a bit incongruous.

    No buzz kill but for those who asked....

    http://www.wate.com/story/14900808/b...h-leukemia?amp

    Some diseases simply....suck.

    For those who have not considered adding their DNA to the bone marrow registry....

    It's a simple swap from the inner cheek and if by some small chance you are a match for another YOU may be their CURE.

    And, yes I'm adding my spit to the database on Saturday.


    I believe this comment needs an explanation - I confess being mystified by it.





    Lufty is correct. After my last, rather disastrous post, I came to the epiphany that to submit postings here was, implicitly, seeking approval, and that, ultimately, the only approval for my fits that I need is my own.

    There have been many constructive criticisms of my postings here, and I have taken them to heart, much to the profit of my alterations tailor (I am much more conscious of fit now than I was prior to posting here, and I've also lost some 10 lbs. since the beginning of the year). For that, I thank you all, collectively.

    However, it has become obvious to me that I will never practice the "house style", and that there are elements of my fits that invoke the psychosexual anxieties of clothing-obsessed but otherwise straight men, from which they need to distance themselves. Anything too colorful, too shiny or with too bold a pattern seems to make at least some of the locals crazy, and when I indulge in them, I get smacked - sometimes with an aesthetic basis for the smacking, sometimes not.

    Simply put, posting here has ceased, at least for the present, to be fun, hence I am in self-imposed exile at That Other Website (though I have always cross-posted between the two sites since starting to post here actively).


    psychosexual, really man.....?

    I appreciate the experimentation, but this doesn't work for me. The boater and the jacket are a bit too incongruous to my eye. Two ideas: 1) lose the boater and replace with ivy cap; 2) lose the jacket and replace with madras/summer-weight odd coat.

    Thanks Lufty...I kind of agree, I think the military tunic inspired coat looked much better buttoned, but they all got lost and I keep forgetting to replace them, Buttoned, and with a less formal shirt i think this may have worked?
    Thanks for the honest critique though, more are welcome!

    I think I see what you're going for. I like the jacket, but I think there's not enough contrast with the trousers, though. I could even go for the boater, but would like it better if you were wearing some dark denim and the boater were the one twist in the outfit. As is, it feels like the fit is going in three directions at once.

    Deets on the jacket?

    If you've got the shirtcuff issue taken care off, I think you're good. Be careful the tailor doesn't go crazy with the waist suppression. You're right - you only need a tiny adjustment there, if anything.

    Greg, thats a perfect Sunday look. Well done. Patches look an eensy bit low, but they do line up with the bottom button, so Im not sure.

    Happy fathers day, btw.
