    Yep, need those too. But really - you dont think the grey worked? I thought the grey with the b/w square and the grey/white stripe seersuckers, it flowed nicely (Nii - you see me, not contrasting there?)

    Spoo - i agree with the comments about todays fit, particularly the shoes and tie. However since i have commented a few times already on your color coordination issues, i didnt feel it was necessary to pile it on. Like i said the other day, you have all the elements - you just dont put them together very well. I really suggest you check out this color coordination article from Ask Andy: http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/C...ordination.htm

    dig the colors Parker.

    Gorge is lower on this one, right? BTW, the "barrel" comment wasn't meant to refer to your weight. I'm thinner than I've ever been, and I still look a bit barrel-like in my higher-gorge stuff. It's a function of lack of waist suppression or some other such victorian artifice and the high buttoning point making the jacket hang like . . . well, like a barrel.

    Yeah - i know what you mean ... IMO its the poorest fitting jacket in my wardrobe and your feedback is already consistent with what i know ... so no worries at all. I def appreciated it.

    I know you can't see the whole thing, but this was the most I could muster for today.

    This whole combination is fantastic. Well done.

    Man - Im the last one to say someone is wearing too many bright colors... but you are wearing too many bright colors. Kind of like Elton John vomited in a rainbow on LSD. Nevermind the price or cut of the suit, but swap out the PS and shirt for white and white and it would have been OK.
    .


    Fair enough. I guess I found the suit so bland I wanted to Juice It Up, plus I like me some crazy colors.

    Digging that seafoam tie.

    THE ANTI MULTIPLE EJACULATIONS ON A SINGLE RECIPIENT EDITION

    The suit is the least of your worries.

    I'm not sure yellow and lime green are in your color "season" if you know what I mean. In other words, they make your light-ish skin seem a bit sickly.


    Also good to know. Maybe I should have my colors done.

    What's the South Park reference? (forgot to quote that comment).

    Here's today.

    Yesterday.

    I know there's obvious fit issues like waist, sleeve length (actually, the shirt sleeves are too short), and shoulders.

    How about the combination? The suit is a dark navy. Any input is welcome.

    I like this jacket a lot - looks like the classic BB/Press lapel roll - but I'm a bit thrown by the besom pockets. Can you tell us why you chose the besom pockets? "Sleeker" look? Just wanted something different?

    masterfully done PG!!

    ...

    beautiful scenery G. where is this?

    Haven't posted a look in a while. Figure a conservative one is a safe bet (I hope).

    Feedback, as always, is very much appreciated.


    Obviously the cuffs can be fixed easily. the lighting is poor so its hard to tell, but the jacket doesnt look great on you. See the fit on kevin's jacket above ... shoulders, waist, chest etc all dont fit/look right. The pants could also do with a little tapering ... you are smaller and so the full pants makes it seem like you are swimming in them.

    Beautiful. The one thing that captures my eye is the stitching on the pocket square pocket.
