    I really don't like any of this. It looks disjointed and the jacket fit is a bit off. I suspect it is too small for you in the chest, which is causing it to bow outward and close the quarters. The jacket color is perfect for Fall/Winter. The sweater color would be lovely in the Spring/Summer. And the pocket square would look good in a pile of bones and ashes. Your posting protocol, however, is fine. Welcome.
    Nice fit on the jacket/pants, but the combination does not work at all IMO. I do like the tie, however.
    It doesn't. The shirt and pants combo does not work, and the tie is heinous. That said, it looks like a nice jacket.

    Here we wear mutch white because of the heat. We are not in Atlanta and we have diffrent styles all over the world. In Sweden I wear alot of tweed suits of the cold and so on... And the tie is a taste thing. I love paisley, you dont.

    CTP since you finally let go of the gorilla pose your pics are becoming stand outs to me for all the right reasons. Nice fitting stuff, good combinations, well done sir.

    Been a little while. Had a few weeks off work so I was wearing jeans and tshirts :).

    Anyway, saw a client this morning and wanted something coozy. Comments always appreciated. I retrospect I should have used my navy wool knit but I wanted to wear my new tie :X Spoiler has shoes and a better fit pic

    Agreed. I also think the sweater is a little big on you, Citan

    Unfortunately you are right but rugby sizing is odd and the small was too tight in the chest so I had to go up to a medium. It is comfortable though.

    I just got a new sport coat for Christmas and this is the first time I have worn it out. Any feed back would be great. I have been trying to improve since I have been on here. I already know the coat sleeves are a little long.

    The zip cardigan has no place in that fit.

    Here is the new Isaia base S navy suit I just got. Nothing has been altered, and I still need to have it cleaned and pressed. The inseam is a 35, so I know I the pants are too long. Thoughts?

    I am wearing a white BB ESF shirt and a chocolate brown grenadine, along with peal suede shoes.

    Please note that i have a large chest (44ish) and a 36 inch waist, and that I have a very large ass.

    Also, does anyone know why the bottom of the suit coat billows out like I have a large stomach? Is that just because I have a large chest?

    Thank you guys for the thoughts/criticism.

    I like paisley. I don't like that paisley. I like white, too. Still really like the jacket.

    It is actually a quilted suede vest. But I can see what you mean. I added that in there as it is more fashion forward to compliment the fashion forward cut of the sport coat.
