    I have this problem with pants as well. That and my large posterior doesn't help.

    either you're insecure or just trolling to intentionally misrepresent the situation at hand :

    • i dont think he looks that bad at all
    • 5 thumbs up (more than here so far)

        "Probably the best fit I've ever seen from you. Pants are wide but in a cool 1940's way."​
    • moo top half is great
    • lookin'g good, mr. moo.
    • nice ! i like this jacket
    • t's just not a SWD fit (and maybe Moo should have spoilered it, I don't know...), this particular outfit isn't bad at all, color palette is good and it fits fairly well (pants are a bit baggy, ok)

    it's really down to your petulance and and overreaction to the non-positive commentary that just draws more attention to this aspect of your posting, it always has been and always will be about your attitude until you address that. your fits get the attention because some like it, some don't, and the rest know you'll have a meltdown with the slightest push of a button.

    I have 9 positive thumbs up here. I am not sure how 5 is more than that.

    The 5 positives are nice. Your are one of them, yet in other posts you make fun of the pants. So either you are trolling or just an ass. I am not sure yet.

    I am trying to dress better - as I think others are - and the only way is to truly understand if someone is telling you the truth or just piling on/trolling/doing SWD things. So, yes, I did go the extra mile today to find out if the pants are truly horrible, as several SWD members have made clear they feel, or if SWD is just being SWD "haha, it's a moo fit, gotta talk some shit".

    In my case, I agree taht the pants seem big. I know there´s guys here who understand much more about formal dressing, but I think even with a lot of knowledge in me, I could never "approve" of those pants. They look big and weird also.

    Oh, you´re kinda whining that "guys from SW&D are making fun of my pants". You are a grown ass man, stop being a crybaby and coming to daddy MC to tell on SW&D. Jeez.

    Good to see some other Aussies posting. Couple of pointers to help you along.

    Tie is not good. Yellow is difficult at the best of times and this isn't working. Something in navy or green would work better.

    I like the shirt but the collar doesn't flatter your build. You look tall and thin like I am, so you need something that sits higher and is more spread to make you neck look not as long.

    Shoes look very square toed from what I can see.

    Keep at it though, it will only get easier with some improvements an suggestions.

    Digging into the suit archives - I've not worn this suit since last August. It still seems to fit - if anything, it's a shade loose, a gratifying phenomenon.

    Suit - HF
    Shirt - BB MTM
    Tie - Lewin
    Cufflinks - Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
    Shoes - Bergdorf Goodman house brand

    I've already stated my opinion there but I'll elaborate. The pants are a bit baggy and I believe you know that - a function of weight loss? Now fuller pants are consistent with certain outfits (see Holdfast or upr_crust above), but are not consistent with this Italian fitted coat look. The coat doesn't show any fullness, the shoulders are natural, the sleeves are slim, everything is on the shorter (but acceptable) side. So, in a nutshell, the top is slightly incongruous with the bottom: fitted top, loose bottom, which is a formula that IMO doesn't work in tailored clothing.

    That said, it will be easily fixed (take the seat and leg in a little?) and the overall outfit, colors and textures look good :thumbs-up:

    Now, if this is something that cannot be fully mitigated (e.g. if you have wide hips), then you'd be better off widening the top by getting some shoulder extension and a little bit more chest fullness to re-balance the overall effect.

    Two lapel holes? A cufflink in one of them? :facepalm:

    Correct. Two. It is actually quite useful for a flower.

    And as for the cufflink - It is a beautiful little flower made of mother of pearl. I think it works really well as a lapel flower.
