Love this look. One thing though, I'm not fond of the black belt and brown shoe combo.
Thanks, it's navy though.
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 .
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.
Goldman just got an opening. You will need to move to London though.
You mean Vampire Squid has an opening?
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.
