    I have to see a full length of this suit!
    Wow, that's some suit HF.
    i am intrigued ... FULL SHOT FULL SHOT FULL SHOT!!!
    Wowza.
    NOBD-approved colours, even! [​IMG] [​IMG] I just ordered a black grenadine from Drakes since I really found myself wishing for one this am while I was trying to choose a tie. Hopefully it'll arrive in time to wear with this suit again later this week, and I'll get a full-length shot then. If not, I'll definitely wear it again next week. I want to get a few wears in before it becomes too warm for the flannel (mid/late April onwards here, usually). I reckon the auto-focus didn't know what part of the pattern to lock on to...

    A black knit would also work well. As would a black Panta cashmere.

    Grr... stop making me think about spending more money...! Heretical as it sounds, I'm not a massive fan of knits. If I want texture, I tend to prefer a grenadine weave instead (although I actually have roughly the same number of each). I know there's not a massive difference in appearance sometimes, but the feel is really different; the grenadine is "soft", whereas knits are "crispy". Cashmere, on the other hand, sounds like a divine option. The only issue I have with Panta ties, and the reason Drakes is my go-to instead is that the last time I looked, the lengths are fairly long (59", or something like that) and given I need to double-FIH normal 57/58" ties anyway, the length is just too much. With a cashmere tie, especially, the knot would become bulky on me.

    A new suit. It needed special work. I am not 100% thrilled, but compared to the before, I can live with it. Of course, in real life...the little things are much less evident than in the stark contrast of a high resolution digital picture.

    Oh, I left my pumpkin in today since it was suggested that cropping my head was possibly exarcerbating the perception that I am "boxy" over on the cool kids thread. [​IMG]

    Have a great Tuesday,

    Mike

    Those two things aren't necessarily related, ace. [​IMG]

    (Just bustin' yer chops, bro. You're one of my faves.)


    oh God ... everything Acecow said was accurate and i believe in good faith.

    take the advice and stop being a d.ick!!!


    To be clear, I do appreciate the critique. I've also PM'd ace and he has been even more helpful. I appreciate that as well. I wouldn't be posting if I did not genuinely want to learn. Hopefully today is better.

    Money. You look as acrid as I do.
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG][/SPOILER]
    Nice look today. I'm undecided on the shirt, but things look positive.
    [​IMG] [/SPOILER]
    Love the buttons on the SC.

    I need to get a black grenadine. It was either this tie or a black satin, which was too nocturnal a vibe.
    As others have said, more is needed. [​IMG]

    Today IS better, but that tie made me punch my toddler. I don't like punching babies, generally. Also, consider a two button suit - I don't think three button suits are your bag. Finally, you may want to take some fullness/length out of your trousers, but it could just be the pose.

    Getting a haircut and especially shaving off that goattee will do wonders for your look. You seem to be of average height, maybe on the short side. 3 button jackets with high button stance and super long jackets exacerbate your shortness. The jacket looks to have a nice lapel roll, but it's not for you. Go for 2 button jackets with a lower button stance and a short overall length. Also, those socks don't work at all. Stick with plain dark grey socks for the time being. No comment on that tie. I see that you're trying and that's good, but tame it down.

    The cool kids were right, Mike. Having your melon in the pic makes a big difference -- and I mean that in a good way. [​IMG]
