    Thanks, man! Yeah, not so subtle, is it? [​IMG]

    LOL, I know! But I just don't like black shoes. I own exactly one pair of black dress shoes, which I only wear for funerals. Fortunately, they still look brand new...

    @DonCologne , I see what you did there! [​IMG]
    Nice pose, nice fit.

    Am I the only one feeling that Noodles' grey suit isn't a good fit for him? I feel that the jacket doesn't drape well in the chest area. It creates a convex shape around the chest, which is easily seen by inspecting the stripes around and above the top button down to the center button. It almost looks like he's wearing a bra under the the jacket, no?

    It's why you have the AA filter in the camera but repeating small patterns and high res sensors + lens will cause moire.

    Downsizing for web might also increase this effect.

    Elio: I think the moire is due to the weave of the tie. In the close-up, you can see that the "direction" of the squares between the dots alternates. I'm not sure there's much to be done about it.

    DonC: The collar is better, but I think a spread collar (with longer points to tuck under the lapels) would be more flattering for you than this cutaway.

    I think the lines would be fixed with a bit of waist suppression, but it's an entirely different cut of suit. It's just the effect of it not having a draped chest.

    I'm not sure waist suppression would fix it. I believe the convexity is due to the structured build/canvas in the chest area (aka non-draped chest?).

    That convex shape in the chest and the fuller sleeves, 3D look, is exactly what the doctor ordered by getting him buffed up overnight and reducing his hips. Suppressing the waist will make the whole look off. IMO of course

    Brown shoes there are perfect. I was just pulling your proverbial chain.

    I dont know how you all take such nice "selfies". I feel awkward asking a coworker to photograph my outfit so I can post it online

    Hola!

    Featuring a rare - for me - double four-in-hand. If that's the correct name.
