    uh no.... they're actually super comfy... I guess cuz i had my foot on the chair and it appears there's some space at the heel but no. I can't bear to wear shoes that don't fit properly (too small or too large). I got these recently and have really liked them....especially b/c they were about 75% off :happy:

    what i noticed from taking pictures of myself without a timer/tripod ... is that holding the camera out in front of you makes the jacket shift and bunch up so it's really difficult to tell how it actually fits
    plus you take especially bad pictures (blurry and badly framed/cropped)
    so...
    judging by these two pictures... the jacket does not fit well
    the first picture... the lapel and chest area on ... YOUR RIGHT ... is bowing or doing something (probably because you're holding your arm out)

    Sorry, Kid N, but +1. It's not MC approved, it's not street, it's not cool individualism or daring rule-breaking, it just looks stupid whatever aesthetic yardstick you use and there's no getting around this. But we all make mistakes. Sometimes everyone else is just wrong, but I've actually got rid of things after comments here made me realize that they were crap and I am sure that's true of many others. This is one of those things.

    Must be a little drunk this morning. I seem to be experiencing double-vision.



    Don't be obtuse, James. More is always better.

    Bravo, but perhaps the border of the handkerchief clashes with the tie somewhat?

    This is true. Some titivating may be in order. A bit bold from me to be honest. Uncharted territory...

    Loving this chunky sweater. (Charcoal gray?) The bow tie adds the perfect finishing touch. The bow, by the way, is nicely tied.

    It's Friday, sunny and cold, and I thought that I would relax, if not the form of my attire, at least the color scheme.

    Suit, shirt, tie, cufflinks, shoes, overcoat - BB
    PS - Ashear
    Scarf - HF
    Hat - Selentino

    That double collar does not look that pathetic, but I don't understand its functionality. Maybe it's warm.
    I wouldn't though, but then again I also haven't got any experience with Jantzen.

    Love that orange tie Malford, great combo with the slate gray POW suit too. Proves a wintery outfit can still look cheerful and bright.

    Function is a shaky basis on which to judge clothing. What is the function of the tie? French cuffs? Wingtips? Let's have the courage of our convictions and just say that it's ugly.
