    P.S. any feedback on the fit and balance of the coat would be helpful as I plan on another order with these tailors but feel this isn't quite there yet?

    don't know anything about the balance but I will tell you that I love the black suede shoes. Not sure about the turnback cuffs on the jacket, they are not subtle enough, if that makes any sense.

    TITFD Tuesday.
    Predictions for the day: I expect that Manton will not favor my socks; that ed will dislike my gunboats; and that fritzl will recommend that I relegate them to denim-wear-only.

    Excuse the poor colors and B/W fit pic, but it's overcast today and my phone camera doesn't perform well under flourescent lights. The colors in the third photo are the most true to life.

    Re TTO: I rather like the whole fit; it strikes me as quite English. The tie I don't love, but it's in the spirit of the thread and I'm with Ed on the shoes - they are excellent.

    Also excellent is the woman's reaction in the 2nd photo.

    Re Lufty: Das fit ist krieg. You are the sack king.

    actually not. they are not dead and totally accepted for suits in my neck of the woods...

    Looks like it has a short front to me. Also, I like the tie a lot.

    After what Lufty just posted, perhaps my socks today will slip under Ed's radar.

    Lufty, my only quibble is the lack of cuffs.

    My quibble too. But unfortunately the previous owner did a hack job on the trou so cuffs aren't a possibility.

    Not trying to cause any argument but are bowties in outfits outside of tuxedos considered CBD? I don't mean historically but rather in this day and age. I think in Korea even I'd get reamed for that; despite peak lapels going unnoticed.

    (Like your fit though Org, though I think your proportions are off with jacket/trouser... jacket might be a little long... like a hair or something).

    luft I think you're doing great, socks aside (thought I have no idea why you took a b/w pic)

    Bow ties are CBD in the South.

    Makes sense to me.

    actually the b/w pic is great because it makes you appreciate the cut of everything (another great sack) and the repp tie/longwings complete the Americana CBD vibe, even though I dilike the gunboats. For me, at that point the color pic can only be a let down.
