    When you get your delivery, post pictures of you wearing it in the Indochino thread. I sure hope that you didn't go to the Traveling Tailor...

    It is always favorable if the fabric is nicely weaved.

    Good one can be Italian look blend with british toughness.

    As this occurred in an eyeglass store (not a propitious haunt for golddiggers, I would assume) and she looked some few years my senior, she would have been awfully long in the tooth to have been digging for gold--not that I have much gold to be dug, anyway!

    I am very sorry misterkisses , I was commenting last night with a very anguish mind.
    But however, I believe you may benefit from lurking in this forum if you want to dress better.

    I know the traditional sharkskin (pick-and-pick), which is an even twill weave that alternates black (or coloured) and white yarns in both the warp and weft. But what is the shiny sharkskin exactly? Is it the same weave, just in mohair or polyester? I have a traditional sharkskin suit in all wool and it isn't shiny at all.

    the guy appears to be musician, so the white shoes (trainers?), tie may not be out of place and black shirt is clearly evening wear.
    The suit looks to have a pull (too tight/ "X" on the jacket) due to the high jacket button vs. need to get shape into it. I have the same problem with an Armani suit slim fit reconstruction.

    Very nice indeed. The cloth merchant of Savile Row: is mohair a Savile Row trend? I've an Ede and Ravenscroft 'non-shark skin' but with similar mohair content. 'The mods' use to be big on mohair suits in the '70s
