    Superb![​IMG]

    Just as the threak sank to new depths of weird, MoK, PhattyG and comrade IST save the day. Furriners 3, Amurikans 0.

    I was thinking the same... triple threat [​IMG]
    Cheers guys!

    Trying to bring the cup back home:
    Nice suit Spoo and I like that PS. Not keen on the tie - too shiny for my taste but the colour works.

    Thank you!
    Yes, I do, but so far it's all in Swedish. Will probably get an English version going soon. Will let you know.
    RL cable
    Stenströms
    Bow tie from my own business

    I'd like to see a full shot to better judge the bows proportions. Colours suggest it could be a fun combination.

    Awesome
    Thanks

    I like the individual parts, but I'm not sure about the shirt/jacket pattern mix.

    Welcome back MoK - like both fits.
    Cheers! I can't see me getting back to daily posting, but I'll make sure I pop in fairly regularly.

    Niidawg - are you swapping the mug for a sunderland one shortly? [​IMG]
    I really like the blue pinstripe.
    Thanks - no idea who the fabrics from, but it seemed decent, and was quite reasonable when I had another suit made up. I was impressed enough with Mangas to go for a couple more.

    And a big-assed watch. [​IMG]

    I do believe it's a Panerai if I'm not mistaken.

    ^ Deets on lastmaker of footwear, plz

    If I advocated trainers with suits, that would be fine with me - it has the right kind of shape for it. But I'm pretty certain we're in a new decade now and need to find another clever way of subverting sartorial tradition

    ^ Meh. It's a cotton suit, at an afternoon show about GIs in the South Pacific. Just felt more comfortable. Sometime's a cigar's just a cigar.

    I recognize that theatre. You're in Toronto, right? Given how hot it's been you were probably one of the few people there in a suit.

    Right. It was hot. There were actually several older gentlemen (i.e. over 70) with nifty sport jackets on.

    That's not fair! Our man Spoo should count for more than one because he posts so frequently. He walks the razor's edge nearly every day. (And sometimes dances on it.)

    yfyf has disproportionately long arms as well so you may want to look at what he's done for some ideas.

    i think the length is fine ... i was referring to the fullness of the body and sleeve. check out the discussion on sleeves in the despos thread. i think it was explained better there than i ever can.
    Thank you, gentlemen. I will follow up on your leads.

    Ignore the supposed relationship between your arms and the length of your coat. If it covers your seat, it's the correct length -- whether your dangling arms only come to the top of the pockets or your wrists are tickled by the hem. How often do you stand with your arms flush by by your side, after all? On the other hand, your ass generally remains in place at the bottom of your spine, and is thus a more stable, and, er, fundamental point of reference.
    While it's true that my ass is, to say the least, a stable point of reference, I think it's oversimplifying the situation to say that a jacket's length is correct as long as one's butt is covered. All my jackets cover my ass. What I'm trying to determine is if I should wear jackets that just barely cover my ass or if I could perhaps offset my simian arms by wearing slightly (or even significantly) longer jackets.

    Hope you don't mind me saying this - you should just crop your face out of the photos. As is, I have a hard time escaping your 'If you look elsewhere, I'mma kill you' stare [​IMG]
