    Maybe. I think it's difficult to tell without the trousers. It looked pretty good in the store but I didn't have time to try the trousers or an L.

    As I said, there's a problem with my iPhone camera. And I wasn't really looking for comments on the fit, just offering it as additional information since many seem interested in the cut of the jacket, and the silhouette was OK despite the problems with the camera. I have to say that I think it's actually a pretty nice jacket.

    Thanks for the comments, gents.

    1 is awesome, but he made the right choice for his situation. Namely, not having a perfect navy blazer.

    Shugz, please say you koped that tie.

    I like your picks.

    I figured I'd take a look at what I would keep for my work fits if I had to pair down to five (or six). I could live with just these six ties plus my black grenadine grossa for funerals and my black and white glen plaid for weddings (both are worn with white shirts).

    I don't mean to emulate his style exactly, more that like him I would do something non standard but still be seen as well dressed, wearing things that are not the usual subtle that SF likes.

    Don't forget to stop by Kilgour on savile row. I'm not sure if they have their new collection already, but the pics/interview I saw in The Rake made it look like something that would suit your waist suppression better.

    In any case, I have not. I'm trying to rein in my purchases at the moment. But soon I'll have a new, bigger closet. And that can mean only one thing... :nodding:
