1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Wow! The flannel, the huge lapels, the bow tie, the shoes... You nailed that shit.


    Also, I posted this in a different thread the other day, but here's my new overcoat. It's a copy of the RLPL coat pictured. The coat is not lopsided, I am. [​IMG]

    Thanks, BB.

    I love that new coat. I agree with Nii...you need to swagger it up!

    Looks like a new phone...the pics are much better. Lovely suit, too. Too bad you insist on ruining fit pics by jamming your hand in the pocket.

    Great suit and combining!! I like suppression, but it may look better if you let it out just a bit.

    Mike, this suit also has '60 Impala lapels, but for some reason, they don't look as huge as the ones from the suit you posted a few days ago. Maybe they're not '60, but '61 or '62 wings. LOL!!


    By '61, Impalas were wingless, bro. [​IMG]

    This suit is quite suppressed. It is untouched, and I would say it is from the '50s or early '60s. Pants have drop loops and frogmouth pockets.


    Mike, the pieces are all very nice, but the BD and DB just don't work together. It didn't even look right when Fred Astaire did it.


    Well, he was my inspiration today, in all sincerity. Maybe I should have gone with a spread. Oh, well.

    Mike

    Great suit, Trini. Is that the one you want to bespokalize?

    Yup - that's the one! Different lapels and pockets though.

    A rare FAIL coming from you.

    pattern of jacket and pants too similar, looks likes mismatched suit.


    My thoughts exactly.

    thats a REALLY nice jacket BB. but you need to pop that collar, fix your stance and wear it with some swag. right now the coat is wearing you.

    Thanks! Will do. It actually has a vivid purple lining that maybe I should flash. [​IMG]

    Good idea. Notch and patch?

    Bespokalize

    Replace an OTR number by a similar custom number.

    I LOVE this suit and combination in general. I'm a big fan of glen plaid. I like the width of the cuffs on your trousers and the break seems right. The pocket square is a nice choice. The length of the cardigan/vest seems too long, IMHO.

    You got it.

    RTW - Polo from a couple years back.

    Looking good, Trini.

    Cheers.

    For the record, I like 'Bespokalize'. Nice mix of bespoke and socialize.

    I think the bow tie works really well with this suit. We don't see enough bow ties, IMO.

    I would have reserved the BD collar shirt for sport coat/trousers, but that's just my personal preference.

    Thanks, I was kinda going for the Fred Astaire deal..but I also think the BD is a fail. Should have gone with a spread.
