    You've got some fairly serious lapel issues in both jackets. They really shouldn't bow out in a curve from your neck. See HF's fit above as an example and compare and contrast with your fit. Not sure that this would be fixable for a reasonable amount of money at a tailor.

    Welcome.

    Now go get some shirts with a more spread collar. Burn the second (grey white) tie.

    UC, may I ask what that "thing" is called on the tip of your shoe laces? And what function does it serve? I can only imagine that you put them on after lacing the shoes?

    Thanks for the advice. The consensus seems to be get rid of both coats which I will do. And yes, that isn't the best tie.

    Nice colors, Spoo. Jacket seems to be bowing, though.

    Guy in my office building has this same suit. It looks a million times better on you though. I don't think the guy I work with got the correct size.

    The proper term for the "thing" on the end of any shoelace is "aglet". In the case of my shoes today, the aglets are small leather tabs, rather than being metal or plastic bindings, to keep the ends of the shoelaces from fraying. The aglets were made for the shoes, and remain on the laces (but can be removed, if I were to need to get new shoelaces).

    Otherwise, their purpose is decorative.

    You're pushing into CBD territory with this one Spoo! (except for perhaps the square, although I think it looks fine). Love the tie--Drakes?

    The concave shoulder is beautiful, Cravate_Noire! May I ask for more photos, and who made it for you?

    Those shoulders are intense. Talk about making a statement.







    Feeling meh about today's shirt/tie combination. Better in concept than in execution, sadly. The poor fit of this jacket around my neck is starting to bug me more too... causes me to leave the jacket unbuttoned more often than not. I thought the corduroy material would loosen up after what must be around 10 wears now, but no sign yet.

    Looks dated to me. Really dislike the concave shoulders. Maybe this is one of those things that will look better to me with time.

    I have no idea how you're wearing that many layers today and not dying of heatstroke, but this (imo) your best post since I've been on here.
