    ^ nice look; needs a longer jacket IMO.

    Two really good - and very different - looks in quick succession. Great stuff guys.
    I think it's more harmonious today.
    Colour/pattern-wise yes... but I think the trousers could bear to be lengthened by 0.5-1". They appear a bit too short, esp. for the wider leg opening. Could be stance/angle, but I think not. Gorgeous sunny spring day, so thought I'd wear this linen suit for what will be one of the last times.

    I truly love it, but it's just too big for me these days, esp. at the shoulders, which makes the collar low/loose in turn. That never used to be the case some few years ago. It's St Andrews RLPL, so I don't want to put it through serious shoulder surgery since even Ede will struggle to replicate the shoudler construction (it's quite different in feel and shape to theirs). Instead I'll just sell it on once my new linen suit arrives in a month or two. It's a damn shame to let it go though; the heavyweight but open-weave and slubby linen is a totally unique fabric in my experience and wears wonderfully cool even in hotter weather. It's one of those suits that feels special every wearing, and I'll be really sorry never to wear it again. So I'm taking the opportunity between now and the new suit's arrival to get a few final wears in! [​IMG]

    I really like this. You are a new man compared to yesterday. Way to go!

    Same tie and square as yesterday's car wreck. I think it's more harmonious today. PS slid up while I shot these, it's not meant to show nearly as much.

    The shirt and tie look a bit dull against the suit fabric. How about something with more contrast but not necessarily brighter?

    +1. A contrast collar shirt and white PS, perhaps? Or maybe I'm just saying that because your tie evokes:

    Definitely not a contrast collar [​IMG] You think there's not enough contrast? I thought the dusty pink was just enough for the grey nailhead. Here's a different shot in full daylight, still? [​IMG] Vs. Indoor light [​IMG]

    The "dusty" pink is just right. It is a great tie for this suit. And... I think the vest adds much to the overall image.

    [​IMG] Now I definitely need to see one of these IRL.

    Will have to find a way to HK as the Armoury now carries two RTW brands I'd love to see up close (Liverano being the other).
