    Are you brave enough for side and back shots? I would do that and post in the Tailor's threak if you want a knowledgable answer. I feel you need more room in the skirt, and doing that would magically make your jackets look better (they look good now, so this is an incremental thing.)

    I also think that some are also confounding you with Citan because of the headless shots and the whole username begins with "C" thing.

    Pure fit shot in obligatory SF bathroom setting; photo taken straight on:

    Like I said, just a tad bit more flare than I'd like, but much of the flare is due to the shot angle.

    Opinions?

    ^^^Just read your reply, Corb.

    I'll bring this up when I see Patrick in the next week or so to collect my casual navy suit.

    Cheers

    You are obviously in better shape than me but I think we have similar "problems" in proportion despite being different sizes (from what I can tell) so I understand Corb bringing up that we may be confounded a bit. Part of the reason I don't show my face is that I am rather young looking and see the hazing other people get for that look. So i would rather it be about my clothing and fit. Also, I am a therapist and I would rather not have potential clients see my face and think, maybe I saw that guy before. Its mostly a privacy thing.

    Anyway, we both seem like former athletes, maybe with different disciplines. It leads to the hips being wide thing and it bothers me as well as my torso is rather slim IMO. If you find certain cuts or tailoring works for you Coldeyed, please share them with us, I would love to hear how I can improve as well. From what I can tell though, you may need to let back of the waist and side seams of your jackets so they drape better. Some of my best fitting jackets have had this alteration and it looks better!

    No snark from me, cold eye. I like the suit as it is. I kinda like a little skirt flare, but Vox has a lot of experience at these things so I'd consider his input.

    :fistbump:

    What also accentuates the flare on the right side is the iPhone pocket in the lining; given the convenience of easy storage and access, I'm willing to live with that.

    It'll be good to re-visit the fit with Patrick one-year-and-a-few-extra-pounds-around-the waist later.

    Vox makes a good point, and we'll be sure to examine that possibility. I suspect that in addition to more room in the skirt, I might need to widen the trouser legs and increase the break just a tad. I've already requested a higher rise to accomodate for the use of braces.

    Ah yes!! you are looking amazing again.:nodding:

    IMO Shorten the jacket sleeves a little, and change the PS, white cotton TV or white silk blob.

    This is a cool tie! What a great bow! How nice it is to wear clothing that was donned by your grandfather. It looks brand new.

    While I like, very much, the pocket square, I'm not convinced it works with this tie, and perhaps, it is too similar to the shirt. Maybe, a plain white linen PS with a light gray border would work better. I'd love to see that pocket square on a blue blazer against a white shirt. That would be stunning.

    Thanks for the critique, gdl. I can't argue with any of it. I bought that shirt before I learned how much better spread collars work for me, and I just haven't retired it yet. My pocket squares are another issue entirely. They simply cannot be tamed. I put them in place, order them to "Sit!" and "Stay!" but they wiggle their way upwards and poke their little faces out from behind my lapels. They're so cute, though, that I just can't stay mad at them.



    Thanks, cp. :)


    @ianGP: The suit is a BB Regent from a few years back.
