    No worries FXH I welcome all comments.

    WRT the fabric, I think it's the palette of the photo. This is the fabric:

    Here's the shirt in some better light:

    Think you'll agree that it's appropriate beyond Pitti! The pants are essentially a grey flannel.

    Agree with the fit comments, I don't think the juxtaposition of such a slim shirt with broad trousers works. It makes my legs and butt looks bigger than they actually are. The tweaks you mentioned are just what I was thinking of doing. 21" chest and 20" waist, combined with losing 1 or 2 kgs, would work wonders I think.

    The cuff is long because it's a three button cuff. Just wanted to try something different with that shirt.

    When you say "inch or higher waistline" are you referring to the shirt or pants?

    I'm gravitating a lot towards side-tab-pants that sit at the natural waist. Difficult to find OTR, but I (hopefully) found some from Epaulet.

    Also, USPS is SO bad. I bought something from Howard Yount 3 weeks ago, last update January 28th after it was sorted into 'International Mail' in NY. Ridiculous! I recall a month long wait for my Epaulet pants before (so another 3 weeks before my new pants arrive). This would be fine, except for the advertised 5-10 business day nonsense that's advertised.

    Have you ever posted something that doesn't involve you being an iWanker? People don't choose their shoe size you know. But I guess your probably 6"4, 100kg with 4% body fat and a 12 inch dick right? Oh and the shoe size to match of course..... Jesus....

    Sorry to hear of your mail dramas. While it's of no help to you, I've never had any problems with US Post and my parcels have always arrived in 10-11 working days.

    The only time it took longer than that, I contacted the seller and he discovered that his wife had put the shoes that he was going to ship to me back into his wardrobe, and so he'd entirely forgotten to send them. Thankfully, he made up for it by sending them via courier at his own expense.

    +1. Not worth the effort to scroll past so on the ignore list he goes.

    Trousers

    edit:: Ok I had a look at the shirt - its blue - but still those sorts of checks are on the casual /country side and don't work with a cutaway, which is intrinsically more towards the formal rather than less formal.

    In my view that pattern calls for for a more longer peak collar or button down and open neck.

    If you must wear a tie with it I'd suggest a square end knit.

    Those checks, even in blue are far too solid and blocky to wear without a jacket unless with jeans or chinos.. Theres a clash of context and message and not one that works in my view.

    In the UK pants = underpants/reg's/ grundies/jocks/underchunders.

    As recently as just last year Cameron referred to buying his pants in M&S, meaning his undies. In USA pants always means trousers.

    Here it used to be pants and trouser were interchangeable although usually in the past women's were called pants and men's trousers. I think the distinction has been lost.

    We now use both pants and trousers to mean trousers. But refer to underwear as underwear or a myriad of other names - none of which exhibit the coyness about such things (toilets) our USA brothers display.

    Of course we Scotsman have no use for underwear anyway, or trousers for that matter...

    No. They didn't have much by way of shoes. A driving shoe, the brand of which I can't remember, and a Church's suede loafer.

    I do have small feet and am short, but still... Unnamed, i have yet to see anything of actual substance in your contributions. Show us your best fit, then perhaps you can have an opinion. At the moment, CW's word is better than yours - thanks for the rally, Jason.

    Shots fired lol

    I was in HB three days before I saw the first sale add, and even then it looked pretty thin in terms of choice stock.

    Also has anyone bought anything in terms of clothing for SWMBO OL? looking at picking up something from LLB not sure if US sizing eg 14 equals Oz/Brit size 14.
