    New suit, and I think the legs are still a bit long. The look is a bit rumpled because I took this at the end of the day. It's a Dunhill Glen Plaid suit, To Boot NY shoes, Baron Wells bowtie, and a shirt from Outlier.

    You need your pants hemmed.

    Nice SC. Not a big fan of cargo pants, but they look okay with the polo and shoes.
    Nice relaxed fit.
    Everything you wear is always perfect. You have a great eye for what works. This could pass for Alain Delon in "Plein Soleil" [​IMG]
    Thank you, gents![​IMG]

    ^^^not a comment on this fit, but the last one with the cargo pants was real nice. I had never thought cargo pants could be made to look anything other than average...you made em look good. Nice job.

    Its the US involvement however since our textbooks (even outside of Texas) are so biased and don't tel the whole story, I make sure to teach all US Foreign Policy in my course with a more global introduction, then introduce how and why the USA became involved. Its very local, in fact, its MY curriculum. Great thing about teaching history where I do is that the curriculum is very loose, and teachers can teach it how they see fit.
    Thanks. What level school is it?

    Thanks for the comment! [​IMG]
    These are my unique cargo trousers because I too never was their fan. But Cucinelli can make even such trousers decent enough...

    You're close and have a good eye...I think its more of a local transliteration of the sanskrit text a friend of mine drew up for me (translates to "teach")
    A friend of my son had the symbol for Pi as a tatt on his bicep. He wore it for a few years until someone managed to show him it was a mirror image wrong way round. He had drawn it on in the mirror and got an ink merchant to fill it in! Neither he nor the inkster knew what it was - except that it was 'meaningful

    I like the slant pockets on the coat. Having two button holes on the lapel is interesting. Nice details.

    In comment to another comment about the waist suppression...I would have to see the back view of the coat to decide if it is too much.

    Thanks. Coincidentally, I was planning on stopping at Brooks Bros. today. Now, I have an even better reason.
