BTW, I would appreciate a critique of the fit of the suit I posted earlier today. I think it fits generally pretty well, but might do with a bit of suppression at the waist.

Too late, it was from fall '10. I'm wearing mine today.

I know Manton doesn't like these shoes, but I'm certain they wouldn't elicit a second glance from anyone outside of this forum.

The fit is quite good overall, but due to your dimensions it looks boxy. The straight pockets and chest pocket also accentuate the boxiness of the suit. If you can pull the top button away from your body by more than 2", then you can get the jacket slimmed. Alternatively I suggest...uhm losing some weight. Are you seriously wearing 2 ear rings in the pic?

Actually, I checked yesterday (and tried knotting my way through some of the 85 ways of tieing a tie). It's neither; it's probably a nameless knot (#10 or so).

Evidently, I need to practice tieing ties more.

Today's effort. Smith & Co 13 oz sharkskin. Dark green Capelli tie. Merolla bengal stripe shirt. Unfortunately the integrated webcam doesn't really capture the color of the tie nor the texture of the suit. I believe the tie is from the fabric on the left as photographed on Cappelli's counter by http://sartorialnonsense.blogspot.com/
