    Edge dressing, my friend. Edge dressing. :teach:



    I recommend that you never do this pose again -- at least not with a straight face.

    Oh, I've never been good with posing at all... want to correct. What makes it wrong?

    There's nothing wrong with it, per se. It just looks a bit silly and contrived. You could have gotten away with it, though, had you been wearing a wry smile on your face. :)

    Next time, try something more relaxed and lifelike, such as folding your arms across your chest, putting a hand in one pocket, or leaning on something like -- oh, I don't know -- like a handrail, perhaps. If you want a true fit critique, though, nothing beats the robot pose.

    You seem to have a little extra room in the chest with this jacket, judging from the wrinkle on the right side. Not sure if that can be fixed, though.

    Additionally, the tie and PS seem a little 4th-of-July for every day wear. Do you wear this tie often? [​IMG]

    This is drape, and it is good.

    Burgundy, gray, and blue is not red, white, and blue.

    To me the tie looks off not because of its colors, but because it was paired with a white shirt. A light blue would be so much better in my opinion.

    Orge's suit is a great fit. In fact, as far as fit goes, Orge is rarely off. If the colors are not to your liking, that's fine, but they are classic and suitable for everyday business wear.

    Can anyone comment on fit? I brought the pants in today to be tapered.

    BTW, the SC is new, that's why a label can still be seen on one of the sleeves.
