    Well done, Crusty. Suit fits you marvelously, but where are your shirt sleeves? Cant even see them peeking out of the arm you are holding up?

    Shoes look fantastic, I wear the hell out of mine, they will break in wonderfully.

    Without the braces, this may be one of my favorite looks you ever posted.

    Thank you Spoo-meister. The braces are a necessary evil - the trousers only came wtih side tabs, no belt loops - and they won't be seen most of the time, when the vest is in place.

    As for my shirt sleeves, I have no idea where they went - they must have been camera-shy this AM [​IMG]

    It is classic and basic - Im just not a fan (old high school colors lol) - but for PG's look, it came off so overly saturated, I think thats why I wasnt sold on it. The tie is insanely nice though.
    - I have just had another look & have adjusted the saturation as I was using a work monitor today & it is CRAP!

    The shirt doesn't work for me. The combination of color (white, formal), collar (BD, casual), and material (almost like a tailcoat shirt) is not to my taste.

    Love the waistcoat Orgetorix, interesting shoes as well!
    Maybe the trousers could be a touch longer also...but just nit picking, overall I really like it!

    Congratulations, NYR! Your classes sound terrific, and thank goodness some people still recognize excellence. And good tailoring.

    Crusty, today's fit is great.

    Thanks! TBH, I was thinking it was almost a DTO of some of your fits when I put it on. And the trou aren't really quite that short IRL. I had just adjusted them and pulled them up too far.

    New camera angle Crusty? It works. Over the fucking top as usual, but I like it.

    No doubt its spot on - nothing at all wrong with it - I just have a personal thing for too many straight lines with no motion. Shirt, suit, tie all have perfect straight lines. A paisley PS would have been what I would have done with it. But hey, thats just me.

    When I saw Mike's fit, I was planning to offer a similar opinion. I think the PS would have been the ideal place to employ a subdued paisley. Nonetheless, nice look.

    Also, Nii, you looked great in that DB.
