    @ NDW:

    I appreciate the feedback and I think it's warranted. I will stick to my preference for hard three button jackets but I have had a few to the tailors for nipping at the waist (not this one ... yet!) and they usually come back better for it.


    I don't have an issue with the hard three button, and it seems to work for your frame, but I think nipping the waist would really elevate the whole look and markedly improve the fit. If you remember to, please post a before and after comparison once you get it tailored. Also, jealous that it is warm enough to wear seersucker where you are...

    Not sure there's all that much to say. The look is OK, but there's nothing particularly outstanding to praise, or egregious enough to damn. It's just a moderately-fitting, moderately-coordinated, passable outfit. It feels flat and lifeless at the moment. Of course, that last sentence acquires a whole new light if read in conjunction with your intended plans for the night! [​IMG]


    Thanks for the comments. You're right..it all needs work. I dress casual every day, so I'm a noob at all of this. I am determined.


    Might wear this instead Shirt courtesy of B&S. Thanks, Roguls.

    Also, pull down the sleeves...they seem to be bunching up.

    You're a better man than I am, Gunga Din. I was gonna go flannel DB but couldn't stomach it even at 72 degrees, 60%.

    I can well imagine that my "fit" today will not be popular.
    [​IMG]

    Actually, I thought this was one of the best I've yet seen from you.

    Similarly, this is very you - but a cut above the norm. I like.

    Great stuff.

    The fit on that jacket is really good though.

    In lieu of a long-awaited but never materialising seersucker challenge, here's my entry for the Friday 'Gold Standard' challenge:

    I am sure that there will be a seersucker challenge sometime later this spring/summer - it's not that warm up North here . . .

    Mikey, you are man of steel - were it me, at that temp. and humidity, I would be man of oily sweat.

    Actually, I thought this was one of the best I've yet seen from you.
    .


    Thanks - the color (or colour, depending on nationality of spell checker) scheme is very restrained for me, which may be why you liked it so much.

    Friday challenge-ing (Thanks to PA for his suggestion of a different helmet to alleviate the collar crushing of the previous one.)

    This is solid, SB. Well coordinated and the suit is a pretty good fit on you (a little shoulder divot action and maybe the lapels are pulling a scooch, hard to tell). Nice knot too.

    Well, when you move from the AC of the house, to the AC of the car, to the AC of the office and back again...you don't feel the heat. If I had to be outside today, I would have chosen the paper thin blue Attolini.

    Mikey, you are man of steel - were it me, at that temp. and humidity, I would be man of oily sweat.


    My office is about 68, Crusty. I could wear that 10 pound Nutter three piece in August here. [​IMG]
