    A full length shot would help a lot, but in the picture you provided it doesn't look short. Any shorter and it would be a problem though. Jacket length is one of those funny things, though. There is no set rules that is right for everyone other than it should at least cover your rear. Proportionately to the rest of your body it may indeed be too short.

    My travel budget would not be the issue - it would be the size of my luggage, in order to hold "The Art of Painting" - it's rather large for an average suitcase. Never mind what effect my filching might have on my popularity with Interpol. :satisfied:

    I watch the show mostly to see the English countryside and parts of the country's history. The clothes aren't too bad either ;)

    @Claghorn are those johnston and murphy's or bostonians or something? I know they both had good lines in the past and that medallion looks familiar. Apologies if I'm totally mistaken.

    Allen Edmonds my grandma bought me freshman year of college. They got little wear their first four years. Heavy wear their 6th-8th years. Moderate wear (and better treatment) after joining SF.

    Ready for spring. Tired of this snow and boots business. I'm not sold on this navy corduroy square. I thought about wearing burgundy or brown, but they both seemed too matchy.

    She has a thing for buying her grandchildren shoes. She grew slightly wealthy (enough to comfortably retire...nothing extravagant) in late middle age as a result of a lot of hard work, saving, and investment. But she grew up really poor and only was able to afford one pair of shoes every two or three years as a child. She's suffered joint problems in her feet starting in her 20s as a direct result. Because of this, she has a thing for buying shoes for her grandchildren.

    Yes, it can be a little like that. But one gets used to it quickly.

    Jacket is Canali Exclusive, fabric is wool/cashmere and almost certainly Loro Piana.

    Thanks. The shirt is RLP and has been roundly (and correctly) criticised for its rather stingy lapels. They look ok in this photo though I guess.

    LOL

    3 and 4 are great.

    Wonderful, Pliny. Is that Kent's soft shoulder?

    @Pliny I'm echoing the sentiments of the gentlemen above. :)

    Who makes the coat? The cloth looks very relaxed.

    thanks, ..'normal'. It's taken me quite a few jackets, but normal shoulder considerably sloped seems to work best for me.

    Depends, just perfect for some crowds.
