    Thanks, all, for the many thumbs up and suggestions from yesterday.

    And for "Spy Wednesday"...

    The pocket square is a beloved old Polo.

    Very nice.

    If you lose the jacket you'd probably be mistaken as the classiest politician in my country, Spoo - they only wear white.

    I have one Bedale and one Beaufort. I am very happy with both.
    This one are about 10 years old. Patina takes time.

    Now I understand looks really good on him, so fit. Same to your Mr! Not fat at all, and everything went perfectly on you too. But what do you guys mean by iGent, something for fun?

    Tibor, I fear that I must agree with edmorel. I think that, if you undo some of the waist suppression (to eliminate the "hourglass" look), that you will look better, but your 1930-1940's sensibility is at odds with the local "more fitted is better" aesthetic floating around these parts.

    Judging from your photos, there is no reason, other than your personal tastes, for you not to affect the late 1950's - early 1960's aesthetic (a.k.a. the "Mad Men" look) - you're thin enough to make that work, and I think that the narrow-brimmed fedoras of that era would actually suit your face better than the wide-brimmed hats for which you seem to have a deep affection.

    Just my $.02 . . .

    The leaning is a visual metaphor for the life imbalance that a two-week old child brings.

    Agreed. Though this is from me, who has a personal preference towards sack suits, so take it as you will.

    There's too much slimness on here. Many posters here can benefit from sizing up one, or un-doing more severe waist suppression. I was once a slave to the "slim cut". It seems silly in retrospect (I'm looking at you, RLBL).

    luftvier - it looks odd on the pic but the coat sleeve bunched up a little when I took the pic. And shirt is new, first wear so sleeves are about 1/4-1/2" longer than they'll eventually be.

    Is this coat really purple? Or, is it blue? Nice slacks.

    If you die, I want your stuff.



    Dude, Tibor, I really liked that you kept the old school cuts on all your stuff no matter how much shit you got for them being "baggy". I'm sorry but this just ain't doing it. Less suppressed waist will look 100x better on you. Find the middle path
