    ^^ That looks better than most of your outfits, you do have a weird body though.

    Citan, I don't think it looks bad at all. A few small improvements is all that's needed, IMO.

    1) Use a better hanger. Those bumps (unless they are your anatomy) are from bad hangers.

    2) Maybe let out the waist a touch - that should assist in lessening the hourglass effect in the jacket.

    3) Try a slightly longer jacket. Maybe 3/4" longer.

    @no one

    Looks good. Bespoke, right? I think the sleeves could stand to be rotated, but I'm not sure if that would be an advisable alteration after the fact. Also, the pants look a little too full in the top block, but that may be just personal preference..

    Thanks I guess. I dunno. Starting to think I should sell off everything and start over. For the record, I am 5'11'' 175 40 chest 33 waist. I lost about 60 pounds 6 years ago and have been a runner and basketball player ever since. So I am not sure what I am doing to have a weird shaped body other than genetics. :embar:


    The bumps were there when I first got this suit tailored. I just think it is excess fabric or something with the collar I need to get taken care of. I will buy some better hangs though (I have a few nice ones but not enough). The waist could be let out a touch, they overdid it at the Polo store. I think a longer jacket would make my legs look even stumpier. this jacket is nearly 30.5 from the back of the collar.

    Don't know if this picture will help or hurt...

    I think a slightly longer jacket will drape a bit better, and coupled with a slightly let out waist will lessen the hourglass effect. I could be wrong, but I think it will help.

    Moo, I think these pictures will help your critique a bit more. I think the waist needs to be let out so it flows a bit better and the jacket does look slightly short in this picture. I also think maybe my pants need to be tapered below the thigh a bit...thoughts?

    So I'm very new to this and I'm probably wrong but I thought I would toss out my opinion anyways.

    From those pics I agree with moo, the jacket needs to be let out, or if you like the way the jacket fits, maybe a pair of slimmer fitting pants? From what I see it looks like you have slim fitted jacket paired with some relaxed fit pants. That could possibly minimize the odd proportions that I see.

    Woah, not that it matters--at all--but I didn't expect you to be Asian or shave-headed! Nice colour scheme--more neutral! :)

    Thanks! And, it's 100% English wool! :) It's not, actually, tweed, as far as I know--as someone else suggested--it's worsted! (It just looks that way in photos, I think.)

    Thanks for all the other thumbs, guys! :)

    In my experience, on SF one should always assume Asian until given reason to believe otherwise. Well that's how it is in swd at least ... I just stick with it anywhere on the forum !

    Ha, ha! "You might very well think that, but I could not possibly comment." As I am typing this, I'm wearing a beat up old pair of LL Bean chinos, a sweat shirt, and sneakers.

    :) Just this morning, I was thinking that I must get some new blades. I've been using the same blade for more than a month. There is no secret for a clean shave: moisten skin with warm water, just plain old shaving cream and whatever level of Gillette blade they are hawking currently. And, unrelated, I cannot tell you how many times I have cut my Adam's apple on the day of a concert. There must be a Freudian meaning behind trying to slit one's throat on the day of a performance :embar:
