    You have very nice taste Soph.

    The amount of cuff showing is absolutely perfect. The shoes and breifcase are really stylish too!

    I think your overall look would look 100 times (ok...10 times) better if you went MTM or bespoke though. The size of the suit seems to fit, but the pants and jacket have a lot of small areas that are not quite right on your body. Of course, I am not saying it looks bad at all!

    Oh and 1 more thing...since you like Neapolitan style...how about some cuffs on the pants? I think wide cuffs on the pants will bring out the silouette on the pants and show off your shoes much better.


    -- Interesting question. I orignally did cuffs at 1.75 inches, but I've found I much prefer the line of no cuff with this type of look although I do have cuffs on some of my suits. Despite Tomasso's obbession with the narrow [​IMG] lol than standard US. I think the Neapolitan's have it right with their overall look. Yes, this is not authentic neapolitan bespoke no padding etc. etc. but I don't want that look for business entirely. Although it is excellent casually imo. But I [​IMG] narrow pants, and I love to shoe off an entire shoe, why hide such a passion as excellent shoes. Bespoke would be great! But a Ceasare Attolini bespoke is not in my budget nor is it necessary for my career. Most people dress horridly in the medical field. Thanks for your input.

    I use an insole to make them fit a bit more snug, which I like my boots to fit.
    9 1/2 G fit like an 11 D US imo.
    They are great business causal boots also.


    9 1/2 like an 11 [​IMG] I gues I'll take my chances with a size 9 and see what happens. Thanks

    Great outfit. Talk to me about the boots. How is the fit. I want to buy a pair but the one's I've seen say they are G fit. Are they wide?

    They aren't quite the EEE one would expect due to the toe shape. I'd say more of a E to EE. The H fitting is probably a true EEE. Great boots though.

    Soph: Great suit, that's my pants fit of choice too. Maybe a bit more contrast in the tie would be nice, however?

    Yes, my 6G fits something like a 7, but a bit wider than a D, more like an E.

    Great look. The arms and shoulders don't drape as well as I would prefer personally, but that can probably be attested to your muscular physique and the cut of the suit. The boots also throw the symmetry a little out of proportion. That's just a matter of preference. But, you obviously have good taste in clothes and know the look you want to achieve.

    I too have been eyeing the Craftsman, but I'm uncertain what size to order. I often wear a 9, but AE's 9, in both the Colton and Park Ave., is a bit too narrow in the toebox. Length is fine and width is fine elsewhere. This has me stuck, as I don't want to order boots that are too tight, but loose Chelseas sound like trouble. Thoughts on what I should go with?

    You can get insoles to tighten them up, also help with odor, comfort and wear. I went up a half size, and with the insoles, they fit me snug. I agree with you that loose chelseas are big trouble as there are no laces.

    Well, since I am very self centered and always want the attention on me, I shall post what I wore today 9/1/06. I knew the weather was going to be dreary in NYC today, but given that it was the last business day of summer, I decide to go full blown summer, linen sportsjacket, creme pants, purple shirt and boots.

    Jacket and shirt are David Chu, pants RLPL and boots & pocket square are Zegna, which I think you also have a pair Soph. Pics are bad, sorry.
    Edit: Would like to mention that this is after a day's work, three hours at the Barneys warehouse sale, dinner and drinks afterwords and a one hour trip home.

    You look very sharp. I think Cream.offwhite is the perfect linen trouser. Much better than white unless you are at a resort. You pull it off quite nicely.
    I have two pairs of Zegna Ankle Nap. Co. boots.[​IMG]

    Ben Silver.com Overpriced though. They do have the two classic models. But bootsonline.com has the french veal and buckle boots, and custom program.

    Nice look Ed. I don't know if it's the blurry pic but does the jacket have no side pockets? (I see the patch breast pocket) - it looks great and I love those details for a casual sport jacket.

    Thanks, patch pockets all around and side vents. I looked a lot better this morning [​IMG]
