    Not really. More likely the shoulders are too narrow and natural for you. That's why the formosa looks so much better on you (extended shoulder), It balances you out very well.

    That is a nice looking suit though..

    That's what I figured. It was in my 'get rid of pile'. It's a brioni, so I'll probably just try to sell it on ebay.

    A camera that low will always accentuate your hips.

    No, just put the camera somewhere higher. A bookshelf or so.

    Edit: seems the last pic was already made from a better angle. Perhaps the shoulders are indeed a bit too narrow for you. Didn't you have the same issue with your Zegna suits?

    In other news, I got to Sydney and realised I hadn't packed any pocket squares.

    I feel naked.

    Still better IMO than your 38R suits, Noodles. Not as good as the Formosa. Better than a useless black suit. You traded something useless for something not ideal but at least wearable. Plus you can't wear your Formosa everyday. Just relax and keep the thing.

    Yes indeed. I'm really happy about how it's turned out considering.

    I have posted it on WAYRN. ^^

    I forgot mine this morning and realized on the way to work as I was already late. The thought of *actually* going back and getting it crossed my mind. I had to fight the urge.

    Fortunately for you, thanks to the tag, you will be able to get some decent money for it!


    Balance the phone on a bookshelf, using a shelf that is almost shoulder height. Do it now.
