    TB, I think that the shirt is fine but the jacket is awful. I think you are wasting your energy trying to fix something that doesn't need fixing, you really need to get a well fitting jacket or a couple of them. I have yet to see a jacket that fits you well, I think you'd do yourself a great favor by getting a custom sport coat made that actually fits you well. I say custom because it seems like no OTR jacket fits you well.

    I think it varies depending on the trouser obviously. This last pair I posted look to be about 8" on the dot..

    Looks pretty good, TB. That's as wide as I'd go, but I prefer a very mild spread, almost a regular point collar. The back height seems fine. You could ask for a little more height in front if you wanted. I'd also ask for more tie space, especially if you wear chunky knit ties like that.

    Yeah, it looks to me like another .25" in band height would help shorten my neck, and I guess that would call for a similar increase in point length to compensate.

    I don't disagree with you, forex -- and I've got a custom SC being made for me right now -- but I'm not sure how you're arriving at this conclusion from these pics since I didn't include any good robo-poses.

    I'm not sure that's an option with MyTailor.com, but I'll ask. I agree that the collar looks too low in the front but seems fine in the back. Thanks for the suggestion, Parker.

    ^ I like your recent interest in pinstripes, Phatso. Not 100% sold on the tie, but it looks good.

    I know I'll take heat for this but I just can't seem to convince myself that a navy suit should go with black shoes. PG as usual your fit is spot on, it's just that I would have picked some shoes in a brownish color, this would have (may be) pull the tie and the whole thing together. just my $ 0.02

    I happen to love black shoes with navy suits, just as much as brown shoes.

    +1. For formal business dress they are essential, at least in my work environment.

    I don't know what it is with the multitudes of hate for black shoes. I still like them a LOT in many cases.

    This hate of black seems to be particularly prevalent with the younger ones around here.........just sayin'.

    Although upon looking again at Phatt's fit today I do get what the poster was saying about how a shoe in a tone to match the tie might look especially good.

    I don't hate black shoes... and thanks for the "younger ones"... I really really appreciate it, hahaha

    I just don't like them as much as I do brown ones
