    You're just reading too quickly. I posted from my phone, and then edited the post on my 'puter. Look now.

    Yeah, it's a twill. And looks like it's been brushed too. Very, very nice [​IMG]

    In my opinion, that's a horrible jacket for you. I'm not sure what is going on, but it emphasises your hips way too much, they look to be wider than your shoulders, which is the worst silhouette possible to my eye. Also, the chest is too small and the jacket is too short.

    that is very nice, pingson, and those ribs are very clear.

    diaz, cool. thanks! and yeah, i think the brush is what had me second guessing, it makes the twill ribbing much less prominent. which in a wool tie, i think is awesome. no hate to pingsons tie.


    i see now. looks even better. great fit.

    Thanks. I don't think anyone should take every piece of advice they are given on this forum. Half of the advice is just one person's opinion vs. another's. I have thought seriously about the advice I've been given and thank those of you who've taken the time out to give it. That being said here are two outfits from the weekend. They're both very casual.

    Looks fine to me, an exquisite coat for an advanced wardrobe.

    Hmmmm, not bad. Perhaps it's just the pic, but that button stance looks a little low for a paddock, which is basically just a three button without the bottom button and a slightly lower stance. I'd put the buttons on a paddock higher than your example shows, not as high as a true 3-button but not as low either. This pic of the Duke of Windsor is what I think a paddock should look like:

    I think something like this could look good on you; I doubt I can rock it though, cause I'm much wider.

    Today. Maybe navy pants would have been better.

    Actually, the Prince's natural waist is between the Paddock's both buttons, thus allowing both to be buttoned. So, when buttoning the lower button, you will always have a low buttoning point, as the bottom button is positioned bellow the natural waist. Take a look at this example by Slewfoot.
    Thanks, but you can wear it well too, as your latest coat already has a buttoning point very similar to what you would have on a Paddock.

    Yeah, but I think I would be inclined to button both buttons most of the time. Dunno, I don't really like the idea of buttoning only the bottom one on a 2-button jacket, even if it's designed to do that.
    Anyways, the thought of a paddock jacket has crossed my mind before. Might end up with one, who knows.

    AS, I know it's sacrilege, but I think you'd look much better today if you ditched the black watch...

    There is nothing remotely exquisite about that example...

    Perhaps tightened the tie a bit too much for the picture ^_^

    With selfies, there's probably nothing more important to capture than color (unless you are looking for fit advice), so you'll want to avoid overly yellow lighting (the type you tend to find in bathrooms). Pretty much the only thing I can tell is that the shoulders fit you very well and that suit has nice lapels.

    Also, new challenge. I added swears.
