    Yikes on the price! I think MTM is less even in their higher end fabrics. Are we talking about a jacket or a suit?

    RTC: Not going to quibble, but just say definitely keep going in the direction you've been heading as here. The higher collar stance on the shirt suits you better than many of the anemic collars of past pics (I still like points under lapel). Stitch can weigh in on stripes (if he feels like it....this is meant as an arch reference to the good taste thread).

    Heh Rudals...I think that's a bigger collar than he's had in the past. It seems higher to me than his other ones. Do you mean spread?

    shirt collar is not good, but the stripes do not bother me, regardless of what is being said in the GT thread right now.

    Yeah. I definitely need more collars like the one from last week. I'll make sure that any future shirt purchases are like that. I like the fit a lot more as well.

    I'll probably relegate the other shirts to weekend shirts worn sans ties or wear them on days when I don't feel like wearing a tie with a jacket.

    Thanks! Thrifted as well. Had some lining issues that I fixed myself and it's good to go. Vintage BB 346. Buttons say 346 on them so I might swap them out someday.

    Is it the shirt collars or is it the jacket?
    I am thinking the jacket may be a tad big?
    Can't tell with current pics.
    Your thoughs?

    I'll take another pic later. I think the jacket size is fine, but the shoulders are slightly padded. It's a vintage brooks brothers jacket so it's not supposed to be tightly fit. I have a muscular upper back and shoulders (and growing!), so I've been erring to getting jackets that are a hair on the larger side since I outgrew some of the nicer jackets I bought. Like a 38R J press navy blazer that I feel like I'll rip apart if I move the wrong way :(

    I think RTC had very low (height) collars in the past which I thought didn't flatter him. This one is higher up on the neck (that was all I meant to say). But I would suggest longer collar points and more of a spread to tuck the points (the neck might be slightly too big too). Collar is a bit wrinkled, but not in a carefree way, more like a "please iron" way. Lacks the life that a nice spread collar can provide. Damn it...I was not going to get nitpicky.

    In general, I like the direction RTC has been heading. A navy jacket helps. Can't say much about the fit of the jacket from that close-up shot though.

    This is so ridiculously badass I can't stand it. This might be my favorite fit in this entire thread.

    You do? Hell, I don't even remember my first post. Pretty impressive!

    Don't worry. I'm picking up some things slowly and having fun with it along the way.

    One must, in the end, think for oneself. That orange/rust tie, awesome.

    Nice! I think the suit could use a re-press though. There are a few weird creases here & there. Smashing item!

    Tie is good; actually IMO everything looks good together except the shoes, which would be better black or dark burgundy.
