    Agree about the higher buttoning point and wide spread. I am waiting for some sales though on dress shirts. At first I really didn't care too much about spread and not I like wider ones. Unfortunately the suit was a MTM that didn't work out as well as I would have liked, the tailor fixed it as well as he could. Thanks for the reply

    Very warm in Michigan today. At an outdoor party so decided to layer the loose RL madras jacket for a statement.
    Have a good sunday folks.

    Thanks. I wasn't sure how much I liked the grey jacket with white pants, but I guess it worked.

    I've recently bought two suits that fit me a lot better and I'm planning on getting a few bespoke suits made within the next week. My cousin gets his suits made from a bespoke place in Manhattan between 42nd and 5th called Enzo Custom Clothiers so I'm going to stop in.

    I don't understand why no love for this? It is pretty perfect except the little dimple on the shoulder end and slightly too short, with the trendy button positioning.

    Fantastic outfit, in my opinion. I'm guessing from your cropped head that you haven't gotten a new hairstyle, though.

    Jacket sleeves may be a little short; otherwise it looks like a great fit. Did you have it altered in any way?

    Thanks for the approval. The sleeves may be slightly short, but I think they might have risen up slightly in the photo. The jacket is actually part of a suit from J. Crew and it has not be tailored yet. I'm not sure what to get done to it, it seems to fit almost perfectly OTR.
    Yes, I made sure I correctly cropped the picture. Thanks for the kind words!
    Thanks a lot.

    Completely disagree. I think it looks great. I also disagree that it's too short.

    I don't mind not seeing a pocket square either. I've been wearing them less and less these days. Plus, with your color scheme, I think no pocket square works well.

    If I want to be super picky, your shirt cuffs look a bit large.

    Why no white tie? Also, with a tailcoat, you should really wear a vest.

    LP lightest is the perfect blend for a warm day. I want more jackets in this fabric.

    That waistcoat you wore in the last black tie photo is one of the worst fitting ones I've ever seen on here. Now wearing white tie with all that shirt, waistband and braces on display looks all kinds of wrong.
