    If it's the same shirt in both pictures, I like it. Prob is in the first picture it looks like you're wearing a solid lilac shirt. That I do not like.

    i rarely consider PSs in my thoughts on a fit, unless they are OTT noticeably "off." i have no PS knowledge, so i dont judge. :)

    Lose the square.
    Is this Caruso? The cut is favorable on you and the longer length is good. As is the button stance --
    but your pants need to come up at least an inch and maybe two to meet that middle button. Right now the low pants are making the top look even longer than it already is. That said the coat could be shorn a half inch in length.

    I puff, regardless of fabric. If anything, I find linen/cotton holds the puff better than silk.

    I've tried it and it just looks like a freeze dried flower. I fold cotton and linen and poof silk.

    Depending on the cotton. I have a few cotton squares that I fold, and a few that I puff. I always puff the silks that I have, and I always fold the linens that I have. But cotton just depends.

    Sheep ^ Would look better with black shoes. White, shirt, monochrome tie, black shoes, and that's not just me being pro black shoes in every situation.

    ^ I don't disagree. However, I have yet to find a pair of black shoes I like enough to buy.
