    Some nice fits in there acecow ... but you need some new blue jeans

    Thanks. Yes, I know. I have a total of 3 pairs and two of those (including the pair I'm wearing) are beater jeans that I wear when I don't really care much. Like, walking to the corner store, etc. That includes going to work for certain reasons. [​IMG]

    Where did these come from, and are there any more? I'm thinking about acquiring some yellow trousers for some spring/summer GTH fits.

    These are great. I believe I bought them at Zara on clearance last spring. I'm not sure if they make them any more, but you can definitely try!

    Excellent. Much appreciated, ace. I just can't bring myself to wear red trousers.

    P.S. any feedback on the fit and balance of the coat would be helpful as I plan on another order with these tailors but feel this isn't quite there yet?

    I'm sorry if this has been said before, but I think the front balance is slightly short. In the first photo it looks like the jacket is pulling upwards (perhaps the result of a tight chest, as someone mentioned). Also, there are quite a few folds in the sleeves in the photos you posted, and I think this is a posture issue that the tailor should have taken into account. Rotating the sleeves might help.

    LOL. If I could get it up there without being arrested at the airport, I would bring you'all some good Cajun sausage. I already sent Spoo enough hot sauce to last him into his 60s. [​IMG]

    really? have some pics to share of gunboats with tapered/narrow trousers and it looking proportionally good?

    i'd like to be edified.


    Well, my second +1 (general dislike of wearing shoes with the shoebox still around them) was the most important, so it's hard for me to show you a good looking example. Maybe if I turn it around: imagine just a small part of the boats (the bows, so to speak) peeping from under the trousers. That, to me, would look very unattractive, like the wearer had tiny round feet. The alternative is showing the ugly bastards (hi fans [​IMG]) the way they are, like you see the "Pitti Italians" do"”I prefer that.

    (Hope you weren't distracted too often by my choice of words...)

    The jacket fit is not bad, but you need to tuck that pocket square down and tuck your shirt in. Actually, get rid of one or the other altogether - the shirt and PS aren't working with each other. Pictures taken in natural light without a flash will also look better--the colors will show up better without the glare.
