    Exposure is blown out, but shirt is blue.

    Far from teh truth, my friend. Somehow my camera makes everything look smaller.

    I live a rich life (in poverty) and have many acquaintances and friends. Oh if you only knew what has taken place on that roof...

    I am 6' 4" and fit very well in my bed with my wife (and even our son on occasion) to put things in perspective.

    I think it could still do with a bit of waist suppression.

    That's also what I had in mind, thank you.
    (actually it has already been altered in the back, maybe the next time should be in the front)

    I'm on a new computer, and the jacket appears to have a purple hue to it on the screen. Probably needs me to adjust the screen, rather than the photo itself being the problem. It's navy; does it appear purple to you or is it just my new screen?

    Looks navy blue to me; though a line in the pattern (houndstooth?) appears to be purplish.

    This is how pink and green/Polo/suede tassels were meant to be worn.
    I'd have gone with a more conventional brass-buttoned blazer, but this was very well executed nonetheless.
    Extra points for an unusually pleasant chrysanthemum color (I usually hate 'em) and the shoes- Polo Redways, right?

    Damn! Setting back the clocks has put my favorite photo location in some seriously harsh light. The colors in the closeup are pretty accurate, but the slacks in the long short are dark navy in real life, not charcoal as they appear here.

    Does anyone think black shoes and belt would have been better than brown?

    I do not like the tie with this jacket.

    Yes...shocked to see Handmade in China on the tag...


    My first Ercoles commission from what seems like a decade ago (4 years). Fleur de Lis buttons in a salute to Franceschiello...appropriate to mention seeing your SF name, although surely not the same Bourbon.
