    the material looks nice but it does have some awkward shape to it... the shoulders are very structured and the quarters seem almost miniaturized or something (could be pic angle) giving it and odd contradiction. It might work much better in a more eclectic, "devil-may-care" kind of fit.

    The SC looks pretty good for a thrift. The major problem is that it's been shortened and the pocket-to-end-of-skirt distance is way too short.

    Some good looks today folks. Miles I think that SC would look alot better if it had more soft shoulders. They are like in between structured and extended but not roped. It is like the no mans land of shoulders. Basically it looks like it was altered when it should look like it was altered for you. The gorge is a bit low as well. However, the fabric is good and I think you should look for similar pieces in more modern cuts. May i suggest scouring ebay or b&s?

    For those waiting with bated breathe, I decided to get the borelli linen suit. I am going to get the DB blazer if it is still avaiilable after I sell some old items :)

    Also, received in the mail some epaulet rudy trousers, very nice quality and a caruso light grey sharkskin suit. I am spoiled, I don't think I will ever be able to purchase a non-full canvas suit again...

    Pictures and fits to come :devil:

    Thank you all for the input. I have little knowledge of SCs, so I appreciate the education.

    Not too struck on this fit. Jacket could do with being a bit longer - and the shoulders a little stronger...

    Actually I think the jacket is good on you? But i'm not a fan of the pants like that (wide and little long) Maybe you like it that way?

    I don't mind the fullness of the trousers at all, but I agree that they are a tad bit long..

    Feel ashamed to post today but my philosophy is warts and all. This shirt is being thrown into the for sell/donation bin. The shirt sleeves shrank about 2 inches and the collar is :barf:. The jacket is part of a suit that I have not had hemmed/altered yet. I purchased it last fall when I was a bit smaller in the chest and prefered shorter jackets. Not sure if I should keep or not the lapels seem to bow out and the jacket seems short. Salvageable or try to move it?

    I am clothes poor, which is why I joined this forum to begin with (for the advice and the ideas) so please do not poke fun that I wear cheap stuff compared to the rest of you. That being said, I have a grad school (MBA) interview today so I went conservative:

    Charcoal Joseph Abboud suit, but it is Loro Piana Super 120s - tailored to fit
    BR slim fit white dress shirt
    CK blue/white stripe tie
    J&M black cap toe oxfords
    Brushed stainless tie bar

    I did not go with the pocket square since it was an interview.
