    Citan, I believe you're a taller guy, right? I think the Rivieras are relatively short.

    They are on the shorter side, like most Neapolitan OTR coats I guess, though I am tall (6 foot 2). I had the sleeves let down around 2cm. The body could stand to have a bit of extra length but it's not too bad. They are very comfy on though, super soft construction and only quarter lined.

    Thanks, lads. BU, there are some other full-lengths months ago. Let us not speak of them... Lisbon, are you trying to make me feel bad? TB, they were camera shy the first go round, but here's how they looked for most of the day:

    I have, however, added some length to the sleeves on the shirt I have on order so that the cuff will stay in place regardless of the position of my arm.

    I like certain elements of this but some could use a bit of work. The tweed (suit?) is nice but the trousers are way too long and the shirt and tie is decidedly city while the suit country, IMO.

    I do like the cut of the DB 3 piece also.

    I much prefer the more structured Camel overcoat to the one on the left, which looks a bit fluffy. So a lot of good elements there that could be fantastic with a bit of tweaking.

    This is one of your best posts. Lots of neat details--especially, the pocket square.

    Thank you, gentlemen. The tie is from Drakes, picked up a couple of sales ago. The shoes are Johnston & Murphy. For some reason, J&M has stopped carrying this model. :censored:
