    You and I are same height and inseam (close enough). I find 29.5 the shortest I will go, which is not ideal, but I live with it, with 30 as my ideal. 30.5 is ok, but 31 feels too long. But I'm happy with a one inch range on length. Perhaps those numbers might work for you too. So, I think the brown linen is probably fine and the Eidos too long though not obscenely (i.e. if you really love the suit, then I'd think ok to keep).

    Our apartment came with really great floor-to-ceiling wardrobes in addition to a walk-in closet fortunately. My wife got the walk-in and half of the wardrobes, but what I have works. Except for shoe storage which I need a solution for. This is for suits/jackets/trousers. The shirts from the other pic are in a identically sized wardrobe that has a different configuration with more racks like this one has at the top for jeans, sweaters, socks etc.

    Viola Milano? They had lots of tricolors this season.

    The colors are very autumnal and with the strong herringbone, doesn't mesh so well with the rest of the outfit which has the look of spring. There's a drake indigo raw silk from this past season SS which might be nice in that fit: purple-blue, but light enough.

    Jfrat, a pic of the fit from earlier, but with better lighting to properly reflect the color of the jacket, would make feedback more accurate, if you are able to do that.

    The tie is Liverano and Liverano from The Armoury. Where would I find the drakes you mentioned?

    You have thirteen trousers... why the odd and 'unlucky' number?

    It's more or less just what happens when you have twelve pair and then buy another ...

    Cheers,

    Thanks!
    Annnnnnnnnnnnd, added to my Wish List on Hober.
    How many folds is yours? The knot and dimple look great.

    It is a self-tipped four fold I think. I always get 58" long and 3.5 wide.
