    Holy shit! You know you've crossed a (thin blue) line when Tibor -- the gentleman's gentleman -- threatens to get medieval on your ass.

    Thank you for your comments. Until now, I was unaware that the homeless has access to the Web.

    On a football board that I'm a member of, one of the posters decided to commit virtual hari kiri by posting a photo of his genitals. Gruesome stuff, but at least he showed a certain style in the manner of his exit.

    I'd leave them be. That's a very slim-fitting suit. Might as well keep the overall look as clean as possible.

    Unrelated point, but IMO, the slimness is revealing fit problems around the shoulder-line, arms and trousers. Of course, it may just be the snap/lighting/pose, but there is rumpling and twisting that runs counter to the aim of a slim/clean suit.

    Leave it be, it's not wide at all. If anything, this is as narrow as you'd want to get with the shoulders.

    Did you steal the tie pattern from my grandmother's couch? She's been missing the material for some time. Just fess up to it so that we can get some closure.

    I know you're probably nursing a hangover right about now, but you're actually more accurate than you realise with your inadvertant in vino veritas. The tie pattern is a Liberty print, inspired by vintage interior decorating patterns (maybe more grandmother's wallpaper than couch, but could be either). Liberty prints are definitely a love or loathe item. I'll let you decide which camp you fall into once you come round from your bender. :)

    Wow, this has been an interesting read this morning! [​IMG]

    Taking some of the advice given on my last post, I scaled back considerably on the patterns. I included the full body pic even though the coat's fit is off considerably. I've recently lost a good deal of weight and didn't realize how much smaller my shoulders are now. Shoes are the same cordovan as before - I chose them to pick up the color in the tie and also to avoid looking like a big black exclamation point. How's this for pattern / color / texture?

    Thanks!

    Very nice! And I hear that picnic basket skirts are on the verge of being the next big thing! Somebody's got to blaze trails, right? :)

    If you don't mind me asking, what's the length / width of your tie? I can't get any of mine to knot that big without ending up way too short.

    Looks like a bomb went off on the last page or two. Remind me not to venture out of Dumb Threads when I'm drunk.

    Waistcoat doesn't fit quite as well as it used to... shirt doubtless continues the UrbanComp's picnic theme... :)

    Tie's 3.5 inches in width. Perhaps a bit wider than what you might see Robert Pattinson wear, but otherwise pretty normal.
