    Is it still annoying if the character I most resemble is Peggy?

    Would you rather be the guy who wets himself?

    no,

    fwiw, it's tight and on the short side.


    If we're talking about his haircut, I agree.

    The coat is great. Are you guys running around wearing J. Press sack suits?

    The coat does look tight. He's ained weight since it was made and it shows.

    contrary to popular belief, he is actually not a robot. Not the best pics, but you can see what you need to see, in movement and in person, all I saw was comfortable, well fitting clothing:

    I own 2 suits, both OTR and I never post questions in WAYWT because I don't feel it's fair to comment without posting photos of my own. However, I wanted to check my own impressions against others. I think it's fair to say that the difference between Matt's fit and what my eye prefers are just subjective. I trust the collective judgement of others enough to know that he's not "doing it wrong".

    Ed, why do you have so much stuff in your outer pocket? [​IMG]

    It's throwing off the nice line of the jacket.

    it was just that day, I usually only carry my phone in there but had fabric swatches, a tape measure etc.

    how's the shoe lace knot tying coming along?

    Since this thread is now a free for all, someone please help me understand what is "impeccable" about Foo's Sportcoat/flannels photo. To my eye, the jacket looks too tight in the waist, and the shirt collar seems tight. When going no break/large cuff I tend to think the top needs to be relaxed a little to balance things out. It just looks uncomfortable to me...am I the only one?

    I agree about the tightness of the shirt collar and the jacket, which are unusual. The proportions are things Foo's done since the beginning IIRC.
