    ^ I believe I can recall a thread discussing how to remove deodorant stains, but I hope that was about stains from deodorant, rather than stains to the deodorant cap.

    Ouchy.... Sounds ominous...

    Bit of a lighter tweed for today. Trousers are a mess.

    Yes Angina, monograms should be inside your shirt collar or under it, not where everyone can see it. A monogram is meant so the clothing item can be identified as yours after being sent for a wash. It is definitely not stylish and almost as crass as leaving the manufacturers label tacked to your jacket's left sleeve when wearing the jacket.

    My first ever post here on Styleforum, hope I get this right.
    If the thing with the image viewing doesn't work, what site should I use?


    I am a newbie when it comes to suits and classic clothing in general, but I love it.
    In the picture is my first suit, bespoke from Hong Kong (as bespoke as it gets at 2400 HK$).It is a little wrinkly since this photo was taken the first day I got home, after having it in my bag for 15 hours on the way home.
    What do you think of it?

    Edit: the shoes are vintage, probably Florsheim cordovan, same as in my profile pic.

    Tip on posting pics- you need to use the Image Tag function.
    When posting pics, click the Image icon to insert a url or upload a file.

    Pretty good. We've certainly seen worse debuts (including mine...). Don't love the shirt collar; wish it were more spread and the points were tucked under the lapels. Speaking of which, the lapel width is on the narrow side of classic.

    The tie color and fabric is wonderful.
    The first pic foreshadows the snow that will soon come to Michigan. Nice overcoat--a sporty length.

    I agree the lapels are on the skinny side. However, this is not a sin since he is so skinny. The narrow lapels complement the thin sleeves and the slim pants. However, to the OP, do note this exaggerates your tall, skinny features. If that's what you're looking for then power to you. However, some wider lapels may downplay your thin, tall frame a bit and perhaps give you more of a V down to your torso. This would be ideal.

    I agree that the collar should be more spread for your body/neck. Just make sure that you keep a rather high collar as your neck seems to be quite long.

    Lastly, and it might be the angle of the photo, but your shoes seem to be a bit blubby for the pants. Again, you appear quite skinny and the pants don't look too trim to me, but if that is the leg opening you're going to stick to I'd suggest a sleeker last.

    Thanks, critique is always helpful.
    I am going to buy a shirt that goes better with my suit and my neck but right now that's what I have, it's the only real dress shirt that I own.
    I am probably going to buy some shoes that goes better with the outfit too, maybe chestnut oxfords in a pretty "slim" last.
