    Fudge. You ruined for me. I thought you looked something like the dude in your profile pic. Lol Superb look all around but I must caution you to not stand so closely to the wall there since drunkards may have piss on the wall there. And that writing on the brick wall distracted me...still trying to make out what it says.

    상봉중(학교). The wall is of the school; it's right across the street from our new apartment. In the morning, I hear kids chattering on the way to school. It's pleasant (low enough to hear them, high enough so they aren't loud).

    +1. Anyone that's not stick skinny should not wear slim fit flood pants.

    p.s., DonC I think you really need to go for unstructured jackets to soften your upper frame. And sweater under jacket looks really bad on you, accentuating your girth. Maybe a solid and inconspicuous one will serve you better.

    This jacket has always been a bit tight, it's one of the remnants of my old RTW stuff... a weekend of too much drinking also contributes.

    And to prove that I can function without French cuff shirts, a picture from my recent visit to Vancouver - more specifically, from the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park.

    As I was the one who first commented on Don's trouser width, may I just point out that all I said was that I couldn't help but feel that sometimes they were cut too wide.

    A couple of weeks back, Don posted one particular fit where the trousers were cut just a little slimmer, and to me this improved his silhouette.

    It was just a gut feeling I had. I'm no expert on menswear, but I have to judge and advise on human proportions on a daily basis in my job, and I have a certain level of confidence in my gut feeling. I have no idea whether my observation contradicted any particular rule.

    Don responded quickly, stating that he has a couple of pairs of trousers at the tailor now. It will be really interesting to see the results. I might be proven completely wrong, but either way, I really respect the effort Don puts into his dressing and I hope one day to be able to get to a similar level. Keep up the good work, buddy.

    Quote:I was the same way at first then I came to the conclusion that a half break with 8.5" taper works best for me. I used to do an 8" taper but was too narrow and my pants wouldn't even fully go over my shoe

    The week starts with my favorit suit from Oxxford clothes. I am very satisfied with the fit of the trousers.

    Very nice suit and over all it, and the trousers fit you in a superb way.
    I'm not so sure about the shoes with this suit. To me they are too causual.
    The suit, tie and PS-combo is a nice colourmatch.

    Jacket, pants, and shoes work. That shirt is not meant for a tie (the width of the stripes being too close to the width of a tie). Pocket clashes with the jacket (smooth to its rough, cool to its warm). Jacket sleeve is too long.
