    no actually it's a tea house, many of the LA ones are in kinda a mall area have various things attached to it like retail stores, but that backdrop was the only place with decent lighting.

    drizzt3117, the Brioni sleeve still looks a bit short, you are showing too much cuff. Can you ask your tailor to extend it, or the buttonholes have already been made?

    It looks to me more like that white shirt has really loose cuffs. They are falling down onto his hands. Am I right? Too loose for my taste anyway.

    Yeah, the cuffs were a bit loose, I think I need to button them with all of the buttons, I don't think the sleeves are too short on that particular jacket, because with a normal shirt, it shows between 1/2" and 3/4" of cuff, while the Oxxford shows about 1/4" I understand the Saville Row standard is 3/4" so I figured it was OK.

    What a difference between these 2 suits. First is much better at waist and shoulders I guess Nice ties but seems you matched tie/square on the first?

    Yeah, it's the same square and almost the same color as that tie. It does match the light blue shade in the Versa tie as well. It's a difficult choice between these two suits, I like the Brioni shoulder better, but the Oxxford is nicely tailored IMO.

    It seems that people think matching tie and square is not a good idea that why I was surprised to see that and wanted to confirm ths detail...

    The first is 10 times better on you. I do not talk about construction but fit.

    Look at your arm and shoulders.

    On the second you look to have fat arms, narrow shoulders and no waist.

    The first has nothing of this.

    Forget the second is Oxxford, look only the fit, imagine it was a Boss fused suit, would you still say it looks great?

    [​IMG] Thracozaag and Bradford Oct 13, 2003 Thracozaag was the guest of honor at a charitable fundraiser for the YMCA Board on which I serve. The location was the home of a local billionaires wife here in Paradise Valley. Quite the evening. I'm in a Hart Schaffner Marx suit with a Robert Talbott tie from Nordstrom's that I got for $2 at Phoenix Junior League Rummage Sale. I believe Thracozaag is in Kiton. OK - It's old, but I finally got a computer with a fast enough processor and a cable modem hookup so I can do the ImageShack thing. Bradford

    My point is that there's a time and a place, the Oxxford does deemphasize my shoulders a bit and has a bit less waist supression, it's a different look, more of a boardroom look, a bit less intimidating than the Brioni.

    I personally like matching tie and square sometimes, usually I will go with a color that is similar but not exactly the same. If you saw the square/tie in real life you would see they are not exactly the same color.

    OK - now I'm having fun - another one from last year. Myself, my wife and our son John at his christening. 4 months old then, 16 months now. [​IMG] The suit is a Jones New York that I got for $35 at a consignment store in Scottsdale and then had tailored for another $50. The shirt is a Polo Ralph Lauren that I got at the same consignment store for $5. I'm sure that Ernest or someone will tell me they look like they're worth what I paid  [​IMG] Bradford
