Is that from Suit Supply?
Wow thats a pretty extreme position. Im sure i could create collar gap on a bespoke jacket if i really forced it. Standard test would be to hold arms out at 45 degree angle and see if any movement but the armholes are quite high so dont think itll be an issue. I think its fine and within reason. Wear itproud. I think when dancing ud unbutton anyway?
I'd suggest part of the versatility of burgundy is that it *does* go with black, and thus the only colour shoes other than black that you can wear with black pants (if you're so inclined). Assuming the burgundy is dark enough of course.
Voi sometimes has some Cucinelli gear and they are a bit more affordable.
When I was bought my FFS in 2008 it came by US post, trackable, fast and efficient was quite cost effective.
Thanks Romp, I get a little O-C about some things here and there, I'm sure I'll get over it
Btw, any size 15inch necks left in 'the white shirt'?
Although you should be careful what dance steps you do.
Irish Dancing would be ok as you can keep your arms down. But then your pants might show too much sock - please post pics of pants length for dancing..
Dancing might also scuff your shoes - I'd suggest wearing a shoe bag over shoes for dancing.
You may need to loosen tie somewhat for dancing - please post pics of tie:
(1) done up in various knots,
(2) slightly loosened - say for the Hustle or the Swim,
(3) Nutbush City Limits/ Chicken Dance really dancing loosened and
(4) one with tie off, jacket collar turned up, fly undone, with wasabi and soy from finger food down front of suit and shirt doing the Funky Chicken ( or Funky Gibbon*) at end of night
* prize for first to post reference unaided.
Yes have 15inch in stock. 15.5inch got one left.
One of your best to date!
Appreciate your sarcasm
They still have a few of their shoes which I cannot understand why they are so expensive even at Voi
Heres an old video of me doin' The Madison (now plagiarised as The Nutbush)
I'm wearing the DB jacket - note no Prole Gap on collar.
Ladies can get what ever they want from me
The mind boggles!
Firstly I agree with romp re: the overall situation.
To nitpick and answer your actual question
Secondly you've got some (very minor) lapel bow which likely isn't helping.
If I had to guess from those pictures I'd suggest that its a combination of posture and chest tightness, if I had free control over the pattern I'd put a touch more room (<1") in the chest and reseat collar following that.
If you like Formula One racing start talking to Sebastian about this year's championship and you won't get him to shut up.
If you just ask questions that show that you
a) Aren't a clueless brand-hound (i.e. do you stock Prada?)
b) Appreciate quality (i.e. know why a welted shoes costs more, or the difference between a fused and canvassed suit)
he'll respond in spades. I once spent two hours on a Friday evening discussion shoulder construction differences in his suits. I had no intention of buying anything, and he knew it..he just loves clothes. In the end I got a call from the wife asking me where the hell was I and why wasn't I home yet!!
