    A little visible shirt cuff would be nice, acrid. Are those slacks green? If so, where can I get a pair? (Of slacks, that is.)



    If I may pick a rare nit with you, cp, I think the slacks may be a bit baggy and the shoes a bit clunky. Love the rest, though!

    For the record, the blazer that received many accolades in this posting...

    is the very same blazer that was roundly criticized for being, not just long, but waaaay too long in this posting...

    The blazer was not altered between postings. The difference is nothing more than a few inches of camera height. (I lowered the camera for the better pic.) Just goes to show how much camera angle can influence apparent fit.

    I think the jeans threw it off. Honestly, I like the "bad blazer" better because it looks to be fitting your neck and shoulders. In the good blazer photo it is sitting away from your neck and collar. It seems that many of your jackets do this.

    Looks good, but what about a full-body shot?

    To be honest, and I hope this doesn't come off as being arrogant but I don't really have time for full body shots and setting up a camera etc, between working full time in promotions/marketing, setting up Henry Carter for launch in April, trying to stay fit, organise my wedding coming up etc etc there's all sorts of excuses but I take all my photos with my iphone as soon as I get to work in the morning, it's quick and simple this way and the photo's come out pretty good with the light at work.

    I also don't really post in WAYWRN for fit critiques (this is where I don't want to sound arrogant) as I'm more than happy with the way everything fits me and despite being only 32 have had 14 years of working with or wearing tailored clothing so I should have a pretty good idea by now of fit/proportion. I post to give others ideas the same way I look at guys like Vox's etc posts for ideas myself. Hope that makes sense.

    Thanks. The tie bar was a gift that came from Ben Moss. Here is a close-up.

    Regarding the pocket square, I feel that I should at least say in it's defense that IRL it is much more burgundy (full shot is the most true to colour) and off white. It came out as bright red and white in the pictures, which I agree look a little intense/garish.

    I might like it in another outfit, or if it was poufed showing the white and dots with another ensemble, but I think here it looks too matchy with the shirt, imo.

    I don't think the differing reactions to the same jacket has only to do with the camera angle. I think a bigger contributor is the difference in rise of the trousers you are wearing in the two pictures. The shorter rise jeans makes your jacket look long. The slacks on the other hand have a longer rise and hence the jacket looks correct in length. I might be wrong but that was my conclusion looking at the pictures.
