Smart outfit and answer.
Rock on Senor Crust.
You look MAHvalous!
Need to work on a better robot pose. Lapels don't bow like that IRL.
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
Stressed out Thursday.
everything is a shade too light in the shoe pic:
I fucking LOVE VictorSF
^ oh no... you got the gheyzzz !!!
Back for the attack with the world's fattest camera.
Damn that suit is 100% WINNING. Details? Only very slight complaint - Maybe a wider tie would be better for these lapels? Fabric on the tie is great though. Panta?
The suit is Sartoria Partenopea. The tie is Altea. The tie is a bit narrow, and I almost wore a wider grey cashmere. However, I really chose this one for the color.

Pos. feedback given with thumbs, as usual. More nuanced feedback below...
If the suit actually has a texture to it, I like this a lot. If it's a flat worsted, the tie is too rough for it. I can't actually tell from the photo what material the suit is, as the whole image is slightly grainy.
Would love to see a full-length pic of this as it appears to fit very nicely from what we can see. Hard 3-2 is very far from my preference, but I can see it being appropriate for that kind of fairly casual windowpane fabric. Tie is very nice also, but I find it too dark a contrast to the rest of the look. Of course knowing what the rest actually looks like would make that determination easier to make. Nice to see a pic from you (can't recall seeing one before, at least recently).
Not a huge fan of the overall look, but I love the fabric/colour of that jacket.
Lots of elements I like individually here. But the overall look feels confused. I think it's that the various elements are working towards very different but equally strong effects. The trousers and shoes are about textured somewhat-faded tones (mottled grey flannel and snuff suede). The jacket and socks are deeply saturated and vivid. The shirt pattern is busy, but the tie is all about blocks of colour like the socks are. Too many effects (which is not the same as too many patterns; the actual number of patterns here is not high at all). I'd contrast this with the look o/o just posted which actually has more patterns than yours but the effects generated by those patterns all work towards in the same direction so it works (at least for me). Hope this feedback doesn't add to the day's stress...
Still, somewhat hypocritical of me to talk of an effects-driven look...
Crusty: Totally agree. Keep rocking on with your bad self.
I already felt like I had a plain boring fit today, and now I feel even more so.
