    CEP I really like your stuff, especially the PJ suits, but i have a suggestion, take or leave- leave if the effect u get is the one u really want.

    It's this-

    Compare pic of u below with pic of Butch. You present an hourglass, with a tight waist and a 'reverse gorge' at the quarters- lapels and quarters producing an 'X'.

    Butch's waist on the other hand is comfortable-looking- the lapel-to-quarter makes a more pleasing 'Y'.

    Could u not consider backing off on the waist suppression and avoid the skirt effect that makes some men look hippy? IMO the tight waist may look better in the static pics we see here, but IRL a looser hang to the jacket if anything accentuates a slim torso in motion .
    love the Challis BTW.

    Thank you, gentlemen. Today's braces I bought when I bought today's suit, as a light and fairly neutral color, as I knew that I'd have to use braces with this suit (and others from Paul Stuart), as the trousers have no belt loops.

    Today's tie I bought in the Pink store in Copley Place, Boston, several years ago.

    For the record, yesterday's suit is actually the greyest shade of light brown - something which might not come across accurately, between .jpegs and color monitors.

    REALLY don't like that tie. :(

    Suit is nice though.

    musicguy had a really great summery fit a couple of pages back, with no likes. Sometimes I don't quite get what SF likes.

    Talking of which...

    banis - second look is great. You forgot to button the collar though...

    Can't really get on board with the first coat though - that pattern is a bit out there.

    My guess is that this is by design. Seen a few do this recently. PG comes to mind. For some reason, I like the look.
