    I think they might be too low... which is causing the pocket flaring. Either that or you need to get the waist/seat worked on because it's too tight

    I actually have my hand in the rear pulling on it. Just realized.
    Here's how it looks naturally.

    What y'all think about this. Ignore the pants. Would this be a good combo?

    Ginghams are hard to pair with a suit. I've some examples that are nice but in this case I think the shirt does not work. I like the tie... and is that JRD's Zegna?

    Too much going on here.

    Don't like the purple tie on purple shirt. There can only be one purple thing.

    Also, ditch at least one pattern. Check patterned suit + gingham shirt + pindot tie = too much. Throw in a solid shirt

    Noodals, some inspiration for your gray suit.

    From Niels of Shibumi, found it on the 20 thumbs thread or that one...

    The reason why I have 38Rs is bexause I used to weigh 15lbs less. Look at this. I am not denying that I am a 40R or long but just trying to explain y I have 38Rs.

    rudals - tie and shirt are too busy together. i think that if a gingham is worn with a shirt and tie its usually best with a solid tie.

    jrd - looks a bit washed out to me. need a little more blue in that shirt imho.

    Me?

    I was trying to color correct and think I did that to it. Here's another pic. In real life the blues are more blue. The shirt is a lighter blue herringbone.
