    Today's combination, in retrospect, doesn't work quite in the way that I had intended. I note that you've the SF-blessed aversion to neckties with reflective surfaces (an aversion that is not universal, as I note from other comments, but definitely part of the culture around here).

    Of course, the thunderstorm that was supposed to have occurred this afternoon did not, which obviated the reason for my fit today (damage control to my dry-cleaning bill) :embar:

    Great taste level overall, all the items are awesome (including the 3714 :slayer:) but jacket doesn't fit you well around the chest and that's distracting. Also don't feel that the shoes are a good match for this particular plaid - too sleek and city, brogues would have been a better choice IMO

    Thanks GDL - First time out (and probably the last for this Suit). Custom Fit just ain't for me.

    Does that collar really come right up to your jawline, or are you deeply tucking your chin in the photo?

    Edit: Sorry. I just discovered that you answered that already.



    :facepalm: Oh, I am so ashamed of you right now.

    Silly me! I kept thinking, "Is he referring to a suit model--AA?" The only AA I could think of was Ann Arbor, but, surely, he did not mean that! Ha!

    Maybe the tie is a bit too rustic with the suit...

    I dunno what this means at all-- but hope you liked the pic :)

    G Lorenzi was a great place I've seen to get a really cool gift for a gentleman, if you're not looking for a tie, clothing, etc. had I known I would end up checking a bag, I probably would have bought a knife or razor.

    PM'd you back! :)


    Thank you and I appreciate it, Jason! Though the big lapels and huge collar rolls may not be an instant fix, that is something I can bear in mind on my future purchases! I will be trying the conservative>flashy approach! This reminds me of a quote I saw on someone's tumblr(I'm forgetting the name now...)
    "Details are meant to be subtle. They should be noticed not gawked at."

    I do have some other suits that have yet to be tailored - said suits might fit yours/everyones feedback, so stay tuned! For now you'll all just have to deal with my bat wing lapels and ill-fitted jackets ;)



    Really? You seem taller! I did just post a rough measurement of myself at another thread and I think my huge drop is causing big problems :(
    I'm a fan of roped shoulders(the TF type) :inlove: but if I had to choose, a neapolitan shoulder fits me best because I do already have naturally big delts.

    Hey Ian I don't think the issue is about conserative>flashy. It's mainly about your proportions. There are some people who are walking color clashes and still look good due to knowing what proportions fit their builds. For you being so short and muscular I agree with scaling the proportions down, but don't feel like you have to stop "peacocking" (if that is a word) if it fits you.

    Hey T

    Love the casual, uber-cool look.

    Just not sure about the tightness of the jacket. And it looks tiiiight compared to your other jackets.
