    This is a good comment.

    Liam, I like the shoes, and I reckon that your suiting game is strong.
    What I would suggest is making sure that you ensure lapels aren't pressed flat when they're dry-cleaned but 'rolled'. There's a good guide on here somewhere about lapel rolls.

    I PM'd Liam O and he said he is going to Orlando for a trade show and that the suits are heavy.

    I did this once with heavy suits when I was in my mid 20's and almost died. I went into a major department store and they put me into an inexpensive cotton blend tan suit that saved my life. They tailored it over night. I wore it with a patterned green tie one day and a patterned navy tie the next. It looked good with both white and blue shirts and with brown shoes. LiamO, is there any chance you can go out tonight to a local Dept store and do the same thing? You will look and feel so much better not wearing heavy fall/winter clothing in the humidity capital of the USA (Orlando). Wearing heavy clothing in FL this time of year will really look odd.

    hard to tell, but it seems the tie is too short.

    also, are you wearing jeans? if so, i think the jacket is to dressy for jeans.

    great pic tho. ill PM you my address, send me some noice fabrics, mkay? :)

    That would be a great plan if I had any money to spare at the moment, which I dont :(
    the suits will be worn at night, and the glen plaid one is actually reasonably lightweight (unlined, very fine wool).

    During the day I'll be wearing chinos and an unlined cotton blazer (yes, the ugly one that doesnt fit, lol) with some variety of linen shirts.

    Your idea is certainly better, but financing my fiancee's move to TN, my move to Iceland, paying for flights and saving money as I'll probabl not be permitted to work in Iceland, I have to be super stingy with my cash. Even a cheap cotton suit is a luxury I just can't afford atm.

    Very nice posts from some members recently. Esecially Daskarn. Go Nordic countries. :)

    Here's some testing with my new jacket. First up is orange, then blues with a chambray shirt. Pants white and then light grey.

    Excuse my ignorant question, but does your jacket cover your behind?

    Cant help but think that the tie knot looks off in some way. At first glance it looks a bit too small in proportion. Maybe its the cutaway collar that is thrwoing this off?

    I agree that the jacket does look somewhat on the tight side. You are fortunate to have a good figure, which IMO allows you to be able to pull off this more 'fashionable' look of the shorter/tighter SC. However, keep in mind that fashion is fleeting but style is timeless.
