    no problem at all sir, i even notice your tie clip(if thats what you call it)....

    but looking at the fit of your shirt makes me think i need to go a bit slimmer on my own fit.[​IMG]


    @Aaron01-im starting to realize this now [​IMG]

    after seeing how others shirts here fit them, thanks!!!1


    That's what this forum is all about, learning what's works. Yeah I can see that your shirt is a bit too big. Just to give you an idea, i am 5' 9" , 167lbs (pretty athletic build), however; i wear a medium in must shirts and some shirts I have are smalls depending on the cut/brand/style.

    im a pretty awkward size i think 6"2/ or 3 with a very slim build.also, a lot of my clothes came from my baggy stage.meaning it was a look that i was going for.i tried to change this style and transition into a more appropriate look for my age (31).
    since visiting here i have noticed what shirts in my wordrobe have a better fit.mainly the ones that accentuate my body type more and are not baggy...a year or so from now i think i will have re invented myself into something that fits me and is stylish.its been tough so far, i actually had to learn how to shop for myself all over again and not pic out 36" jeants when 33 or 34 fit me without looking like some hood rat teenager!!!

    It all comes in due time. I would suggest going to a tailor and get measured up. It is always good to know your real measurements so you will have a idea of how clothes shit properly fit.

    Getting ready for another day at the office...

    Nice but IMO a tie would finish it...
    Outstanding. Casual is so much more difficult to do well than formal.


    Very good.

    +1 and thanks

    Dig the tie.

    Thanks - I thought there would be one person on here who liked it (and probably only the one [​IMG] )






    No full-length pic today, sorry. Trousers were light-tan in colour.


    Nice combination. Great SC

    ManofKent - Elegant as usual!
    Cheers.

    i like the shoes

    Thanks - default wet weather black shoes.
    ...
    I like the top and the bottom, but not together.
    Broke out the new Sam Hober grenadine today. Ah, the texture!
    It's not too short, by the way; it just looks that way 'cause it's blowin' in the wind.
    The bag is a Slinger briefcase from Custom Hide.

    Nice tie. I need more Grenadines. The Slinger looks good - I've had their Scholar for about a year and it's holding up well.

    Too bad - that looks very promising. beautiful tie. Deets on the shirt. Been looking for a muted red stripe shirt ... something similar to that.

    I'm with Nil - for some reason I can't seem to find a nice red striped shirt. You did. I'm jealous.

    Thank's gentlemen[​IMG]
    The shirt is by an italian brand named Camicissima.

    How many ways can you say "flawless"? God damn. This is a solid example of killing it on all fronts. Great work. Who made the jacket btw? Perfect.


    I hope you aren't serious. There is something seriously flawed about that jacket.

    I like the colors, but . . . .

    Not one of my faves from you, egW.

    Where do I begin? I like the pink pants and loafers but something's wrong with the jacket. I know! It's DB & looks like a tent. You need at least 6 lighter buttons and get it waisted.

    NYR, I like the fact that you get outlandish but please, stop posting the fam. Nothing against them but it's sad enough we post pics of ourselves (and you hand tatoo tells me why you're not afraid to blank out your face [​IMG] )

    I'm beginning to like your weekend fits better. Colors are richer.

    Cord jacket clashes with the plaid trou IMHO. Otherwise OK.

    [​IMG]

    That DB coat looks like a mini dress on you.

    Looks like you found that suit after 3 years of searching in your closet. And you've grown.

    The BD collar ruined this, otherwise I like it. A lot.

    Kiton blazer
    Brioni pocket-square
    Kiton shirt
    DG pant
    MD belt
    Armani socks
    JL bluchers
    ADP cologne
    Piaget watch


    I would have gone with a different pant, belt & sock but otherwise spot on

    The lapels motion is getting me seasick. Wish you had went with a sleeker shoe, otherwise I like the tones.

    Ghey bracelets and official FNB tie aside, this is a nice fit.

    Some will say the jacket is short not realizing the pants have a low rise. I like this. Especially the tie.

    Diggin the cut and shades. Many will hate on the shoes ([​IMG]ish angle).

    See? Much better.

    Oops, I think I went too far. Am I in this week already? Oh well.
