    Bespoke indeed. I agree about the rotation of the sleeves, but I will wait for the coat to settle further in order to decide whether an alteration is advisable, just in case. The trousers are full, but my thighs are full as well...

    Jumping the shark jumped the shark that jumped the shark just now. That's how much jumping a jumping shark jumps.

    There's just a bit more saturation than IRL, but the colors are reasonably accurate. I understand the jacket is not for everyone. It requires steel balls, a razor sharp wit, and a Reagan-esque charisma.

    but do you really think a double-breasted suit and wide tie is complimenting this guy's body habitus? If you ask me it's all wrong. Stodgy and old looking. Not cool. But hey, the
    girl looks cute, so maybe it's working for him.

    I was going to try say it in 100 char or less, but stuff it. Anyway...

    I think you look pretty good in your outfits. Sure your body shape is a little different to a couple of other 'clothes horses' (meant in the nicest possible way) on here who look awesome in almost anything they care to choose to wear. If i were you i would just be very proud of what you have achieved and learnt so far, and savour the pleasure it gives you to wear such beautiful clothes on a regular basis.

    So in my opinion, relax, enjoy yourself, have fun :happy:
    Oh, and finish your outfits off with a PS, they always look so good..

    I have decided to take Style Forum advice and have my suits drastically slimmed down especially the pants. Pics soon to follow.

    Hello, Nice look. I know I can wear pants that are sometimes way to full but it seems judging by the pictures you posted that your chinos are too tight, especially paired with a jacket whose lapels look to be from the early/mid 70's. Nice colors and pattern combination.

    very nice Nothing much to improve except a better lapel pin, TBH since you are bold why not try Mr.K Lapel flower or real flower, rather than that random pin?

    Not the best picture quality, but from what I can see it is classic and swank.

    Citan, I think you have dysmorphia. A bit less waist suppression, and you're fine. I disagree with Moo's suggestion of a longer jacket.



    I ain't mad at it, Sheepy. It's just bold.

    I don't know why you always have to speak ill of me. Hopefully Moo you will give me an honest opinion without the usual snide remarks when I post the improvements.

    Tie measures at 3.5" widest point..... hardly wide isn't it? Maybe because the other end is sticking out to the side giving it that illusion.
    Thanks on her compliment :)
