    ndw - Slick as hell bro. Looking great.

    Unfortunately, I bought my bed, and now I have to wear it, if you'll forgive the nearly-incomprehensible metaphor.

    Don't worry. You're not alone in this. Though, if you don't mind, I prefer the left side.

    Anywho, trying to incorporate some of the advice from yesterday, especially that of Phat Guido about how to take pics (Thanks again). Hopefully some of it comes through. Being Texas in the spring, the wind was up.

    leather and jeans done VERY well. nice aeglus. who makes the jeans?

    ...

    i know its going to feel like the criticisms just dont stop ... but soon enough you will be happy with yourself and how turned out you are. First the good:

    • good to see you took the photography advice. your proportions came out a lot better
    • the tie is very nice ... green actually goes well with brown so kudos for pulling that off.

    and the bad:
    • avoid black and brown, particularly brown suits with black shoes. i think brown suede or darker brown calf would have been a lot better
    • work with a tailor to measure the length of your arms, and then work on your shirts and jacket sleeves, so that you have a consistent amount of cuff showing. it would surprise you that most people have different arm lengths and RTW shirts/suits dont account for that. that is causing your sleeves to look too long on one arm vs the other
    • look around here and you would see a lot of pictures on how jackets and pants should fit. with time you will find tweaks to things like the drape of your pants, shoulders etc.

    Looks nice Rob.

    +1 i missed Rob's fit. nice tie. is that a black panta cashmere?

    Great look Aeglus. Wish I could pull off the Morrissey, but my hair's a bit thick.

    PG - Details on the suit fabric? How does it hold up under hot weather?

    Spoo - tie is fine, suit is dope, shoes I actually don't mind, but yeah, they're a bit distracting.

    mktits - you're getting there. Some good advice given.

    NYR - nice sportcoat.

    Acrid - no problem with pink shirts from me, but in general, I don't see too many light tie / dark suit combos that look good. A darker tie would work better here.

    EdgarAllenPwn - dark pants work waaaaaaay better [​IMG]

    Fred - nice tie. Silk? or wool?

    Much better.

    Brown shoes.

    Shirt with shorter sleeve length. Or pull down the sleeves on the jacket as they may have bunched up. Probably the former.

    Shoulders are too big and the sleevehead is likely off as well. This is causing those indentations at the top of the sleeve. These are known here as "divots."

    Colors work much better today, I like the tie.

    Either the lapel rolled funny, or the suit needs to be pressed.

    We can always count on you to deliver! Love the MC/SW&D harmony. TOJ? Looks like their calf bomber to me.
    ^Not sure if it was already mentioned but the coat sleeves look a lil long.
    I was thinking the same thing. It seems they're about ~0.25" too long but I don't think I should stress about it too much.

    For sure. They're either going in my "lose 40 lbs" bag or my "to donate" bag. Probably the latter, since they won't fit around the waist if I manage the former. [​IMG]

    Damn, you guys suck [​IMG]

    The tie though, I can't see how a thick woven matte silk (Hermes lourde) is a wrong choice with a charcoal flannel pinstripe. Maybe the shirt and shoes (and direct sunlight pic) didn't help, but I think purple is a great compliment to grey flannel. Oh, the square is white linen. #winning [​IMG]



    +1 And I think MB needs to go to Suit Detention and be forced to wear Men's Wearhouse suits for a week as punishment for his comment.

    Hey, I said I loved the suit. I just was not feeling that tie (color more than texture) and those shoes (again, color, color color) with that suit.

    We'll see what the Vice Principal has to say. Maybe we can knock your punishment down to having to appear at a deposition in an aqua polyester leisure suit.

    [​IMG] Mike, it's a class 1 felony to be discriminatory against the color purple, FYI.

    I believe that legally, the forced donning of an aqua polyester leisure suit would constitute cruel and unusual punishment anywhere outside of St. Petersburg or Boca Raton, FL. [​IMG]
