    Love this look. One thing though, I'm not fond of the black belt and brown shoe combo.

    I like it. Love cotton/linen blends, wish I could afford more worthwhile ones like those. Should I even ask if I could afford the pants?




    belt is blue, fyi

    As I was born in 1955, you've officially made me feel old. As for Wall St., that's my work neighborhood - the romance of working in the financial services industry has worn off in the intervening 35 years, but I wish you well in your career ambitions.

    As for tortoiseshell eyeglass frames, they simply help me channel my inner WASP :satisfied:.

    You work in finance? Weird. I'd always pictured you as a museum director. You may have to change careers.

    My academic background is art history - the only thing that prevented me from pursuing a career in museums was lack of a healthy-sized trust fund or a pronounced taste for poverty for much of my career. My museological career now merely consists of writing checks to museums on an annual basis. :)

    I might start doing this. After viewing the Steins this past Saturday amidst all of the rude tourists and screaming children. I think better "curated" crowds might "suit" me better.

    So do you think the suit fits terribly? If so, what can I do to remedy this? I just took it to my tailor and he said it looks good and I spent a few hundred dollars having the suit tailored. I am a little upset that I am receiving such negative feedback after all the money I put into having this suit look good with my tailor.

    Personally I don't think the sleeves are too short. My issues are more with the buttoning point/length/pants rise, which can't really be altered. It doesn't look terrible. If you like it, enjoy it! I'd just suggest maybe waiting a bit before going and getting 2-3 more similar suits to see if you still like the fit/silhouette after living with it for longer and seeing other silhouettes on SF and blogs, etc

    New sportcoat, I didnt work today and just tossed on a shirt and tie to try it out. Courtesy of b&s. I need to let the waist out, hopefully the seams have enough allowance as it was a mtm item.
