+1 on all the above. Haha
picked up my new BB milano navy pinstripe today
came home and threw it on for some pictures
my signature pose
at first i asked for 2" cuffs then chickened out and settled for 1 3/4th inch
wearing my new peal/C&J brown captoes
Spoiler: a whole lotta pictures
loro piana fabric
i could stand a little more erect ... difficult to gauge when taking a picture of myself from behind
i did virtually nothing in terms of alterations - shortened one sleeve by less than 1/4", added buttons, did not touch the waist of jacket at all
took in pants waist and cuffed the bottom
i know the jacket is still a tad short ... but that's how the milano is cut, right?
That style of felted material and the sorta rough hewn stitching on the SC, is there a word for that because I love that look and can't figure out how to describe it. TBH why don't you just will me the entire wardrobe?
I'll fess to it. I like the competing herringbones. Come to think of it, I just generally like your fits. I hate you, though, because I can't pull that off.
Rome, I agree about the jacket length, but otherwise, it looks like it fits pretty well. Mazel tov.
This looks fantastic. Best post yet.
If you don't like how it looks, don't wear it. Just because BB Milano is "supposed" to be short doesn't mean that you have to like it that way.
It's like when I go to a brick-and-mortar to try on suits, and the salesmen tell me that I should wear a shorter, "european-cut" jacket, just because I'm young. I don't care what the young men in Europe wear - I don't have to follow a trend blindly!
Just thought I'd throw that out there.
Spring is on it´s way! I wore this with just a quilted barbour vest, scarf and gloves.
The tie is Pari. Never used it until I got this SC and realized that it works well with it and the vintage silk PS I just made.
hi, i am kevin and live in japan, nice to meet u
The briefcase is from were? Do you want to sell yours!
I'm glad you did; you are too short for 2", IMO! (It really irks me, that people still don't get basic height proportions! *Snobbery*)
Very nice, sb, but when are we going to start seeing full shots of you again? At the very least, please include a pic of yourself from the knees down so that we can see your choice of slacks, shoes, and socks.

The button stance is too high for me
If I'm wearing a jumper/cardigan, you're unlikely to see my shirt sleeve cuffs. My jumpers have sleeves longer than my shirt sleeves - and this is how I want it. On a site where some people demand their shirt sleeves be longer than their overcoat sleeves, this may be unusual.
Given how stuffed the jacket sleeves look, a solution might be sleeveless jumpers.

"Looking great. The collar points however aren't."
I can see that it looks terrible. It is a really old shirt. Could probably use some starch
