    I feel hesitant posting so soon after a potential Foo-threak, esp. given the controversial elements in this look... :)

    Nice, but I think that a more contrasting PS would be better. (a simple white for example)
    This looks great (especially the jacket!), maybe a plain white or pale blue shirt would have worked better.

    Holdfast: aside from the oversized lapel flower (I understand it has some kind of meaning in the UK) I really like this thing a lot ... :nodding:

    oh and I like your trimmer pants...

    It's sad that until f.c. posted the batsense video, I thought that was a scene from Reign of Fire.

    A fantastic movie. Wait. no.

    I quite like this, though I do wish the exposed front hung more perpendicularly to the ground. And while I like it, I think I'd still prefer a 6 x 2.

    Something about this really reminds me of that fantastic pic of il vecchio's pinstripe DB; in my opinion, that's still among the best ever posted on the forum, so to note any resemblance is intended as a high compliment.

    That's right. Gray glen with purple overcheck.

    Um hum.

    This is a great look UC, love the suit, especially the lapels, and the shirt and tie look absolutely fantastic together. Well done..




    I really, really liked this, but when I saw the third picture, I had to agree with Foo that the pattern on the shirt and coat seem to be competing with each other a bit. I initially thought the shirt was a pale blue, in which case the coat, shirt and tie really worked well together.. You've got some great looking clothes..

    I REALLY like the jacket and the shirt, not so much the tie. But the patterns on the jacket and shirt are fantastic.

    That looks like a woman's jacket from Zara

    well... foo might actually be 1.5m tall ... and he can't change that....
    that being said
    i don't think this DB coat does anything to help with the height challenge
    i don't know if it's the cut or the buttons or what... but just doesn't help to create an elongated silhouette
    probably better to stick with a SB?

    Thanks. I couldn't really capture the tie and jacket pattern well but I really like the tie & shirt. The shirt is a Keaton and looking at the pics I probably could have got it at a better angle.
