    Thanks! I don't think that it is really that big. Also, all that shirring mappina effect on the sleevehead is due to that sleeve is bigger than the armhole, which may also influence impression.

    Thank you, Mr. Downing. It's good to see that sartorial standards are being maintained in the land of eternal sunshine, T-shirts and shorts :D. It was suggested yesterday by one of the regular posters here that I do a series of double-breasted suits this week, after my week of three-piece suits last week. Alas, the series will only be two - the rest of my double-breasted suit collection was too large by half after I lost weight a couple of years ago, and went to the charity shops. Suit - BB MTM Shirt - Lewin Tie - Andrew's Ties PS - Robert Talbott Cufflinks - BB Shoes - Harris, via Barney's NYC [​IMG]

    IMO this color scheme really does you a favor.

    I take no responsibility for the office decor in the shots below. They are the undoubtedly hand-picked selections of an otherwise affable true religion/affliction wearing Herman Cain supporter.

    You are not getting any hate, you are getting advice. I recommend you use that advice, because there is no point in posting your fits without any will to improve.

    I don't mean to pick on sugarbutch, but his outfit shows a reoccurring problem in this thread. I appreciate that people enjoy their tweedy, country-ish sport coats, but they often just look incongruent when paired with certain accessories. The bright and vibrant colors of the shirt, tie, pocket square, and cuff links don't jive at all with the earth tones of the coat. The textures and patterns aren't harmonious either.

    Try a pale blue shirt with some texture or maybe a tattersall in a number of different colors instead of a solid white with double-cuffs. A patterned tie competes against the boldly patterned coat, so this is a good opportunity to use a solid tie with some texture, like a silk grenadine, or a muted pattern, like a cashmere or wool herringbone. If you still want a pattern and like the green color, then consider a green that is more earth-toned and doesn't have such a vibrantly colored pattern. The pocket square should also stay in the earth tones. Those Drakes moghul squares go well with just about anything, but a nice paisley madder would work well too.

    I generally agree with the critique above, but I think it might not fully apply in this case. The photo is lit by the fluorescent light above my desk, so the tie and PS appear to be much more vibrant than they actually are. The tie, for example, is a much more muted olive with fairly muted figures on it; same for the PS and silk knots (which are a very subdued burgundy). I agree that a PS like the Drake's would have been better, and I would have chosen something like it if it were in my closet. I typically wear this jacket with a blue shirt with a bit of pattern, but in the reality of this morning, this (fairly textured) white shirt was the only one ironed, and the kids needed to get to school.

    I hope the above doesn't come off as "But, but, but..." and thanks for taking the time to offer your suggestions.

    For me it's the French cuffs that throw this off. Absent those, I think everything would be copacetic.

    Here it is, iGentlemen - my first WAYWRN post (well, from last Saturday night).

    I'm aware my shirt sleeves are a bit long and I may need a few more tweaks with the waist suppression. Both the shirt and the dinner suit are brand-new - just picked it up that afternoon.
