    [​IMG] H&M AA APC Converse and a bonus suit pic, disregard the part of the dress shirt hanging out, it was tucked it when I was wearing it, but a friend wanted me to send them a picture so I sent it before I changed. [​IMG]
    I can't tell from teh picture to much but it looks like the shoulders might be a bit to wide, but I really like it! Who's the suit/shirt/tie by?

    Yeah, so jpgm really needs his tag changed to "prettiest boy on StyleForum". [​IMG]

    My Thick as Thieves suit arrived!!!!

    Going ridiculously monochrome today (click for suit coat open):

    And an MC-style closeup:

    This suit is amazing--literally, two compliments on the way to work and three from coworkers so far.


    Very sharp! I may have to get one of these for myself... Nice choices on the shirt, collar, tie, knot size, handkerchief, shoes, etc.

    That said, I hate to be the one to bring the MC up in this lovefest, but it looks like there may be an issue with the sleeve pitch. All those diagonal wrinkles look like your arms are pulled back, and if it's not just that picture, then the sleeves probably need to be rotated back a few degrees to match your posture. Unbuttoning the top button may completely eliminate it, it may just be the picture, or you may not care (as you already saw, no one but me seems to care [​IMG]) but just thought I'd throw that out there in case you can tweak it for the next order. Unfortunately, it's not a really easy alteration to do - would require removing the sleeve and re-setting it - but it's possible, again if you care.

    Anyway, keep it up!

    Sauce, all I can say is: Wow! That suit trancends the borders of perfect, I think the fit may have ripped the fabric of space-time. I need to get my hands on a TaT before Jason makes it big and jacks up the price [​IMG]

    The only thing less comfortable about it than a "normal" suit is that the pants are cut quite slim. I gave Jason my thigh measurements and he cut it very slim based on that, which is exactly what I wanted. I'm so used to slim dry denim that it feels like silk, though. [​IMG]
    The pants are very fitted on me, especially my thighs. But even though they are slim, there is enough stretch in the fabric that they are super comfortable. For my next order, I'm going to have to go with the waist of the 36 pants (30" waist), and the legs of the size 40 pants. Probably the most perfect fitting dress pants I've ever had. I'm going to consider ordering some as seperates next time. I'm really hoping for a job by mid-June so I can afford another 2 suits.

    Well, I feel sort of ashamed posting after Sauce now as he's stepped up the game for all of us! I'm not surprised you go compliments...did anyone say "It looks like it was made for you?" 'Cause then you could have been witty and said "It was," in a sort of cool J. Bond way. Oh, and GS - do you do the actual sewing or are you the business end or what? I never figured that out

    Anyways, here's today's - kind of a redux of one from a few days ago.

    Thanks for the compliments, and thanks for the advice. I noticed that, of course, and in all the pics I posted, my posture was completely normal (for me). I have a tendency to keep my shoulders back and back straight--I think because I had a posture fascist for a fourth grade teacher--and I guess that's causing the twisting. I don't mind it at all, but I had no idea what was causing it until you pointed it out. For my next TaT order I'll talk to Jason about that. Unbuttoning the top button alleviates it a bit, but doesn't entirely eliminate it. Thanks, j.

    Excellent fit on the jacket, but I'm not exactly sure about the blue on blue here - perhaps someone more knowledgeable than I can issue a decisive ruling here.

    Also, Augusto, since I hated on your Aldos, I should mention that those Loakes look infinitely better - great, great fit overall.

    yea, the navy jacket with jeans irks me too. I think grey khakis could look really good with the navy and brown, and still keep the casual-ness to it. Esp since the pocketsquare seems to be grey so it'd all tie together like an intricate tapestry.

    Good advice. I only have jeans, though, so I will have to acquire some odd trousers.
