    The coat seems too large in the shoulders, no? Kind of boxy. The picture without the jacket looks better, because (not to sound like Foo) it seems that the jacket clashes with the shirt too much. Other than those minor things, I really enjoyed this. And I'm envious of your cold weather.

    A little, but its a very old vintage Irish Tweed...Frank took in the sides a bit...my posture probably isn't helping, but shoulders are heavily padded...as for the shirt/jacket, I think the scales are different enough to pull it off, but I'll leave it to the peanut gallery...cold weather rules!:slayer:

    Pull up your pants, man. And get some slimmer ones while you're at it. Your tops look OK, but the bottom part constantly lets you down.

    Or maybe his little girl IS one of his minions. What good are kids if you can't enslave them?

    By God your right kids should work. I am going right home and have my daughter do the windows and mow the lawn.

    First post didn't go through, so here's my second attempt
    at my first post on this forum. Wore this suit to a business
    banquet last night. Haven't had time for alterations or to get
    better shoes (current are from high school grad). How is my
    OTR-mockery?

    We could nit-pick but I am sure you were probably one of the better-dressed guys there, and unless you were among the severe upper echelons, you certainly did not embarrass yourself . Pants might need a bit of tapering, and for the love of god get some fresher shoes!

    The suit can be fixed to fit you pretty well, IMO. Just a bit of waist suppression and sleeve cropping should make it work pretty decently. If the color of the shirt IRL is like the second picture, burn it. Along with the tie, which made my dog howl in despair. You owe him a cookie.

    This sport coat and the linen one with three patch pockets look best on you, IMO. Good job, why don't you try 3 button coat?
