    I think it looks very nice and agree that it might benefit from being let slightly out in the waist and having the lapel rolled slightly higher (more 2½ than hard 2). Fabric looks flannely in the full pic but not in the close up - what is it?

    Thanks guys. It is an HLesser for Carlo Barbera. Very soft Donegal like Hopsack-y fabric. About 11 oz. It wears heavier than I'd imagined it when I bought the piece.

    I was being serious though, his right whisker looked warped - and it usually doesn't look like that, thought it would be nice to give him a heads up in case he forgot to wax or comb it. I appreciate his beard, and I'm sure anyone would appreciate someone letting them know that an aspect of their image is off from how it is usually so they can fix it for themselves. I don't let people walk by me with food on their face, I man up and tell them.


    Hey man look great. You should post a pic of your entire outfit from shoes to neck, you mention the shoes and socks but noone gets to see...:(

    Wait. I'm going to take this back. This tie looks great because it's proportional to the rest of your fit. A more loose, classical american-type fit. UC doesn't rock this fit and the tie looks disproportional on him.

    Looks a lot worse than what you've posted before (the new suit). You look really uncomfortable in it.

    could possibly be the pose. I may try it with a proper white shirt and a more natural pose. I know theres work that needs to be done to it, just not sure how much.

    This is the third of the three new (to me) BB suits. I can't determine the actual color but there have been numerous guesses that it is grey with a hint of green. I may have to have the legs slimmed.

    It was breezy but I'm not sure if I needed to go a half inch longer in the leg?

    The knot is as tight as I could pull it. I had to use a D4IH because it's too long, otherwise.
