    Prince of Asturias uses Pinstripe for dates and he looks really good, I don't think Pinstripe is just for Business and the so called "some social occasions"

    I don't know who that is - I don't doubt that he looks good. It's not that people will point at you and laugh if you're wearing pinstripes on a date. It's just that, in the United States at least, pinstripes have a business connotation that,to my eye, make for a somewhat unrelaxed appearance on date.

    Compared to what most people wear out, a nice suit, with pinstripes or without pinstripes, would look nice whether relaxed or unrelaxed.


    By the way, for anyone wondering, I changed my username from Tony Romo to Superfluous. :nodding:

    Generally it looks pretty good for a beginner. two things I would mention though.
    1. Your shirt collars look to be about 3 sizes too big, and should have at least a medium spread.
    2. You trousers appear excessively slim/narrow in the pics.

    I think you can. Though, I wonder in Cali how often you would wear it?

    I would wear this of course!! (not surprising) :) your fits are usually so conservative though we've (at least I) never seen you try to rock something like this. I think it comes more down to attitude and confidence than anything about the coat inherently. It's been said many times but if you have to ask then....

    Here, my Corbera-inspired fit coherence calculator is applied to our esteemed friend Butler, who shares my inability to dissuade crowds of swooning blondes from making a footpath out of skimpy undergarments.

    [​IMG]

    On the formality scale, the three piece suit might entice the rookie eye to conclude that the fit's palpable dapperness tilts the meter toward city-ish. In fact, the fabric and pattern of the suit reveal its true underpinnings. The bowtie, pocket watch and tassel loafers combine for a full on English country look. You can imagine Butler enjoying a fine Cuban cigar and a glass of cognac while being fellated on the patio of his Swedish villa in this suit. What he is not doing, however, is working in any kind of urban environment.

    The fit, as you might expect from someone of Butler's prominence, is spectacular. Notice the structured shoulders and perfectly tailored trousers. Here, Butler is in the rarefied air of Foo, Corbera himself, Whnay, and Phat Guido (RIP). While the spot-on fit may prove irresistible to many, it lacks the ruffled evidence of a life replete with the drunken, yet strangely soul enriching activities of yours truly. It is here, in the shadows of morality where Butler could improve.

    In terms of coherence, Butler is again pinning the meter. The fit is immediately understandable, requiring little more than a passing glance to register as aesthetically pleasing and country. If Butler were to summon my advice, here, I would say that he could dial it down a notch, to appeal to mortals. It is important to remember that even the very best of us become better people through humility. An untied shoelace, or a slightly askew knot would probably do the trick and help Butler reach the next level.

    As far as color goes, Butler is encroaching on Richard Simmons territory. Which is not to say that his fit is insufficiently masculine (I once saw Richard Simmons bench a booth full of heavyweights at a Taco Bell in New Orleans), just that it is certainly dandy.
