    You need to find a better tailor.

    Is anybody making a thread like this one this year? unfortunately I don't have the time myself, but it would be great fun to see a compilation of the best from 2011's WAYWRN though.

    Merry Christmas everybody!

    This coat does not fit you Kid. It's about 2 sizes too wide/big in the shoulders.

    New pants, tie and pocket square. Going for what you call the "security guard" look I suppose.

    You always seems to be in foreign countries. Yet your location is still Amsterdam :p.

    Love this...though it may seem big because its unbuttoned with that scarf...would love to see a shot of it buttoned w/out the scarf. Details on the coat?

    it's actually perfect on the back and a touch snug... coat is a 38 and measures almost exactly as my bespoke suits and shirts which fit perfectly. Must be the pix... I couldn't possibly make it a size smaller much less two. Maybe all the plaid having gotten to our brains is now affecting our vision! (I mean that kindly dean to you and myself as well)


    thx NYR. I believe you're right on the fit "visual".... tho' this wasn't a fit pic; wanted to show the scarf and just adding to the holiday vibe. It's by Crittenden Rawlings in Midway, KY. Quite a burly lambswool fabric in a varition of "woodsman" plaid I believe but correct me if I'm wrong. Double vent, lined with the same fabric, surgeon's cuffs and super warm&comfy!

    It's hard to tell from the photo, but I think the jacket could use some waist suppression. Other than that, and the shoulders, I congratulate you for being a man and wearing plaid on Christmas. [​IMG]

    P.S. I'm surprised we haven't had any denim-hate yet on this photo. I personally think it looks ok, but I'm sure many SFers on this thread hate the jeans.

    He's wearing a plaid sport coat, so why not wear _______ [​IMG]

    Jacket looks like it could use a steam and press to remove the wrinkles.

    The waist suppression on the jacket is doing weird things. IMHO the waist suppression should either be less, or lower down on the jacket.

    I think you could benefit from a pocket square to break up the wall of charcoal/black (whichever it is). The tie and shirt just don't add much color, so it looks kind of muted (in a drab blah sort of way, not in a James Bond kind of way).

    The tie knot (what I can see of it) and shirt collar look good!

    What exactly do you mean by waist suppression? Do you think I should shorten this jacket? I am beginning to think it's a little long.
