    The coat or the outfit? Agreed on the second (tie and shirt being the offenders), but I can't envision how would you criticise the first.

    Take away the tie (please take it away), push the PS in a lot further than it is now, lose the belt and replace with suede and you have a pretty nice fit. Bit flashy as it is. I like the coat but I think you'd benefit between a bit of contrast between it and the denim (lighter denim maybe?)

    Lurker > Poaster, but I did want to a today's fit, since I actually had a chance to snap it.

    Yea could be true, the terribly lit pictures don't help either.

    Suit is Charcoal Grey w/ light blue stripes, blue shirt, navy dot tie. I thought it was a safe play, as I have a hard time playing with striped suits.
    I tend to usually go plain shirt, plain tie to stay conservative.

    That's really surprising. Regarding fit, it seems to fit better than almost every jacket posted here today; regarding style, it has none incongruent stylistic detail; regarding cloth, it's a very nice shetland; and, regarding handcraft, well you must be blind to not see the amount of shape that has been put into that. Hey, I'm sold.

    More shoulder extension than I like, and I think we can all guess what I'd have to say about the buttoning stance, and perhaps do something about the pockets (jetted hacking seems....dunno....)...

    but give me the cloth and the quality of construction, and I'd be happy.

    I'd feel pretty 'pimp' in that outfit if I were at a cocktail lounge, except for the pants.

    I'd also dial back on the shoulder extension, just a touch, as it's just barely starting to divot. However, it's a Paddock coat with the lower button buttoned and the pockets are simple crescent pockets. So 2 of your 3 points were simply non educated.

    edit: meant "points" and not arguments

    I wasn't making an argument.

    I like higher buttoning points than the norm. That's lower than the norm. It was a preference.

    I dislike the pockets. I can only see the front half of the pockets, so I'm not sure how I'm suppose to recognize they are crescent. If they are, I'd probably like them more. Still not sure I wouldn't rather have patch with that color, fabric, and pattern. Regardless, also a preference.

    Stitchy mentioned he found it unappealing (subjective). You expressed surprise (subjective). I pointed out aspects I found unappealing (subjective) and appealing (subjective). They weren't even subjective arguments. They were just comments about what I liked and disliked.

    Nobody is attacking you, Victor; tone down the antagonism.

    I meant "points". The literal translation of argumento (points in english) is argument, damn language barriers. I'm sorry if the tone seemed to be raised. I'm not defending myself from anyone, as the coat isn't even mine, I'm simply having fun making a point.
