    Definitely true. Believe it or not, some musicians even wear black sneakers! And people think I'm a freak because I can tie a bow tie.

    You're correct about the shirt. I've washed it once and will again before I wear it the next time. If the sleeves are still too long then, I'll have them altered further.

    The vest is a 3-button with kind of a u-like v shape.

    I'll take another picture when I've mad these changes (and the jacket will be unbuttoned).

    Appreciate the comments.

    Cheers

    Consider sleeve garters for your sleeves? They will keep you shirt sleeves at a proper length and would be hidden by the jacket. It would also lend to some historical accuracy which would go well considering the rest of your ensemble is classic.

    Banis two possible issues. I have placed arrows in above photo to indicate.
    1) Bunching on the shoulder seam. Is it just the pose?
    2) Rear of jacket is protruding too much. Perhaps use a billfold in the breast pocket instead of a wallet in the back pocket?


    These are beautiful shoes! Details please?

    Banis dresses better than most. Truth be told, he's one of the few posters that I look forward to on this thread. I appreciate the Neapolitan shoulder; honesty, I'm a sucker for it. But like Banis said, it's probably just the side angle of the photo. I'm sure in real life it's as charming as I think it is. If not, then Banis needs to hit the gym & buff out those delts to fill out them waterfall shoulders :devil:

    1. It is how the shoulder is made. Nothing wrong with it.
    2. I don't put anything in the back pockets. It is just my fat ass, as I haven't been going to gym often for the past three-four month due to a new baby. It will be fine till the NY.
    3. Shoes are G&G Hayes in Vintage Rioja.
    Thanks! I think you are far too kind about the way I dress.
    Shoulders on this jacket in front view look like this. Difference can be seen.
    Will most definitely work out on myself. :)

    That's very kind of you to say, though the streaks of both three-piece or double-breasted suits are over for a bit.

    Dressed for a dull and possibly slightly damp Wednesday.

    Suit - BB Fitzgerald
    Shirt - BB MTM
    Tie - Lewin
    PS - No-name brand
