    Alright, when both Kulata and EliodA tell you your lapels are not too wide, you have to listen to that.

    At least in this picture, the lapels look pretty awkward at the notch, and the barchetta looks unrefined.

    Good eye. Especially on the barchetta.

    The weird gorge is probably just the angle. But yeah, the breast pocket is pretty funky and the trouser rise should definitely be higher (stylistic choice).

    But man that back was clean.

    Also, finally picked up the green tie I'd been "needing" from ET.

    That's what first caught my eye...especially given that drop right shoulder that is more visible in the blue jacket picture.

    Nothing chunky about the U and K last Vass, Cox. I have two pairs in the F and I love the last....it's a classic.

    Didn't want to do a full length as my trousers suck but here's the tie and pocket square combo. I know the tie is not the favorite of everyone but I love the shades of blue and brown together big time!

    Jacket is Flusser, tie is Fumagalli (never heard of them), pocket square is Drakes.

    This is a pocket square/tie combo I would never have considered a month ago.
