    At first I also think the stance is weird, perhaps too high. However I think the issue is the coat is a bit long for him. In general I think this is the best X#$$@# made jacket I have seen.

    PG, I agree that the jacket is a bit long and the pants a trifle full. The lapels are just gorgeous, and DBs look very good on you. Overall, the suit reminds me a bit of the longer Armani suits you used to wear--with better fit, of course.

    It has a slightly "droopy" quality to the silhouette, esp. in the close up. I like that a lot. Others here will not, I suspect. It's good to have variety in a wardrobe anyway, IMO. [​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG]

    Primary school graduation? Otherwise, my mind is boggling slightly

    That striped waistcoat of yours has always been perversely compelling

    This hardly approaches too busy, IMO.

    I didn't think it was way too busy but I think a solid shirt would have been the better choice. I also have to admit that this fit is a tad out of character for me.

    What brand of watch?
    Nothing to extraordinary. It's a Lucian Piccard automatic.

    It is not a joke
    I realise that it is not everybody's taste
    But i am an artist and sometimes like to dress differently

    With respect, as an artist, the odd juxtaposition of one item against other items all of a particular style but not executed particularly strongly just come across looking "odd" rather than evocative or thought-provoking.

    I don't get a sense of "cohesive" or "shocking" or ironic or...

    I'm ALL FOR different when done convincingly.

    These are buy no means everybodies cuppa but I find them at least confidenet and/or convincing in their execution. Purely opinion I realize:
