    Didn't believe a pose could mean so much to a human being. My apologies Mr Spoo.

    Hey all,

    Long time no post. Got the green jacket about two months back and finally managed to get some pictures the other day:

    Replaced the metal buttons with brown horn, and re-cut the pants.

    Forrest green "Sidi" (judging by online research, a Mexican brand?) DB jacket.
    Blue T&A shirt.
    Red/blue/light blue tie.
    Light blue plaid PS.
    Gray H&M wool pants.
    Brown Dockers belt.
    Brown Sundial Norwegian shoes.

    Comments and suggestions always welcome!

    And yes, I know someone will bring up the damn "Master's Green Jacket" by posting this.

    I don't think the first pocket square works at all; I think you should burn it! :p I like the jackets, for the most part (some of those lapels are great!)--as I can hardly see what's going on--but you could tie your tie knots a little better/tighter, I think!

    Hey, glad to see you're back! :) I think, and correct me if I am wrong, anyone with more knowledge than me, the jacket is slightly too tight/short (sleeves are perfect, though!). While the lapels are quite 70s-esque, I like the jacket and the colour. The pocket square works well here, though I'm sure there are other combinations which would work quite well (like red/white, etc.). Like the trousers; not so keen on the shape of the shoe, but an improvement--so, win! :)

    I'm not suggesting anything, but has anyone ever seen JapanAlex01 and Rob McElhenny in the same place at the same time?

    I used to have a forest green DB blazer too; every time I posted it here, at least one person posted a comment along those lines. I really miss that blazer though (only got rid of it because it was a bit too big on me). It's a good colour for exactly the kind of look you're wearing (though personally, I find your interpretation a little too snug, short & tapered all round). A bigger problem, though, are the lapels. They really are very eye-catching, which is an unneeded extra distraction when the colour itself is so unusual.

    Not that he's not handsome, but I don't think I look like him (but, very funny). I'll take my hat off next time, so you can see. :)

    I LOL'd then I was like 'what does he mean by mullet?...'


    I didn't know about the rules on cotton jacket/contrast collar...I just put it on based on color.
    And burn the tie? but....but....I love this tie! I even wore it twice that week! :embar:


    Yeah, I guess looking back at the picture and comments something is amiss...or everything! Back to the drawing board!


    I cut the tag because it was too damn long but IIRC, it was a cotton/linen blend.


    Thanks - maybe just the pic? The jeans are dark-ish brown at natural light.
