    ^ Hey Bat - welcome to posting in the thread. Fit looks generally good - but is the suit black? If so, the shoes are a no no with it - just too light. Hard to tell from the pics. PS fold is not my personal favorite, the sharkfin is a bit dated to me, would have prefered a TV fold or a small puff with this. Anyhow, welcome and please post more.
    The suit is black with a copper tone pin stripe. I only have one pair of black shoes and they are in desperate need of sole work but looking at the picture I posted I can see what you mean. Noted! I will definitely youtube some PS folds. This one was done by my GF... (I know... I've learned my lesson).

    I couldn't get the camera to focus with the self-timer, but here's what I had today anyway.

    I've done this combo a few times before but I like it. Don't think I'll be able to get a whole lot more wear out of this or my other flannel suit since it doesn't really fit very well and I doubt my shoulders are going to shrink in size any time soon. Didn't notice the knot until I took pics and too lazy to bother fixing it.

    Not CBD today. Have the day off, so getting some use out of the F/W gunclub check while its still cool enough to warrant it.

    from head to toe, excellent.

    ^This is just killin it. Hands down one of the best fits posted in a while - pretty much perfect. Coat may be a little short, but it fits the overall aesthetic.

    Another Monday morning - threatening rain sometime today, but with seasonal temperatures, so no hat, coat or scarf - hurrah!

    FWIW, and have at it, iGents . . .

    Buona Pasqua tutti.

    I have a pair of trousers in a similar shade getting hemmed at the moment, so I'm taking notes on possible combos. Nice one.

    And now for my first actual post WAYWRN.

    Overall, fine, if a little dark for Easter.

    Would be improved by: black shoes, checking the trouser length is correct (difficult to be sure from photo). I don't mind the pocket square fold, but in conjunction with the black suit and brown shoes, it creates a somewhat late-90s/early-00s vibe to the pic.

    And finally, easter. 100% not Manton approved.

    Hmm, that's a lot. I like the concept, but would need a full length pic to judge. Perhaps going tie-less and with a plain white shirt might have been better ?

    Pictures like these restore my lost faith in Aviators.

    Aviators are totally dependent on a person's facial structure. On some people they're brilliant; on others (like me) they're awful. They're a cool classic style, it's just not one for everyone.

    Welcome. Keep posting. [​IMG]

    I like the very tonal look you've created. Good for spring weather, plus it happens to sync nicely with the background blossom.

    Details on the shoes and jacket?

    Another great combo, worth a full repost.

    That's not my gut bulging out, it's the stoopid white belt. If I knew then what I know now...

    Digmenow, don't take this personally, but this fit is all kinds of awful. The trousers are too big for you, and at least 2" too long (although I think you recognize they are too big, so don't hesitate, buy some new ones, today); the colors are all reminiscent of autumn, very drab, and then boom, the blue shoes.

    Very nice. This thread really needs more non-CBD done well, and this brings it.

    I second this suggestion.
