    ...and, after Yoox, I breezed through ShopTheFinest who apparently just got a boatload of Barba's. With all my staples already well covered, I snagged an "alternative" type grey'ish brown with a subtle nailhead. I think it's going to be interesting to see how/where I can work it in.

    As an aside, this is the first Barba I can think of that I've seen with double button cuffs.

    Y'know, I thought about PSA'ing something like "STF just got a buncha shirts!" but then I thought, those who pay attention in the right places, they'll spot it :)

    I might still do it, but only after the in-crowd here gets their shot first.

    Its an all-seasons 11oz-ish weight wool, not sure the thread count.
    And yes its a suit.

    Looks fantastic. Odd there isn't any hand detailing on the inner lining.

    Indeed, I thought Borrelli's look like this on the inside:

    This is from a suit from 2008, does it mean that the quality of newer suits is lower, or am I reading too much in this?

    another sw&d crosspost, this one should hopefully not be perceived as trolling though

    I think the general consensus is that whilst the overall quality is still very high end, costs had to be cut somehow or other and as such modern items may not have as much detailing (be that in choice of buttons, handwork, cloth used etc).

    That is nice, KoY. From an CM perspective you might want to go for a broader spread on the collar so it lays under the lapels. Also, if you are going to keep the tie bar move it down a bit so it is not wider than the tie and keeps everything in place.

    Appreciate the feedback, both shirt and suit are actually from H&M so there are probably more things than the spread that could be improved, but they do fit surprisingly well considering the price :)
    (And yeah I realized the tie-bar was too high after I took the pic)

    First pair of non-zipper trousers. Also first pair of non-belt trousers. I feel that the next pair needs pleats.
