    Your fits are fantastic, exactly the sort of thing I'd like to emulate in the long run.

    Fully agree!

    Kappelan: As I am a little bit curious, could you maybe provide details on your height and weight?

    Spoo: Details on the tie you are wearing on your most recent pics (page 1802) ?

    Thanks!

    Kappelan, have you slimmed down your jackets in the past year? Your fits seemed to have improved a lot, but I can't put my finger on the reason why.

    Thanks all, for your comments and thumbs.

    This tie (today, not sure what page you are on due to reading configs being different) is a Drake's bicolor grenadine garza grossa.

    THis is a post work shot, so everything's a bit wrinkled. There are patterns on both the pants and the jacket, see the closeup shot. Too much?

    No problem with early debut of the summer suit, but I think you'll agree that a more generous lapel would be more flattering and in keeping with the proportions of your collar and tie.

    How did your students and colleagues react to this today?

    I see that you're taking o/o's counsel on summer hosiery...


    IMO, the tie is too shiny for the rest of that outfit.

    Thanks for the comments today everyone.

    I am taking this SC to my tailor tomorrow. I plan on letting out the waist a bit so it doesn't "flare" open below the buttoning point so much. In particular, the back sides of the jacket tend to bump out, leading to an odd crinkle and slight pull at the button. I am also thinking I may need to size up a bit in the chest. Will try on a 41 or 42 to see how it fits for future purchases down the road.
