    If I was to be exceptionally arch, I'd point out that the debate ended up being more about defining identity & the meaning of personal preference rather than about marriage itself, and that understanding why you prefer something is far more potent a learning experience towards developing a personal style than simply looking at pretty (or not) pictures. In other words, it might help you decide why you find that skinny navy suited french look you mentioned so appealing, which is much more important than just liking it.

    But I think my shrink slip is now showing a little too much, so I won't sail such waters and instead return the thread to the safer harbours of more amateur clothes photography. [​IMG]

    What have I done?!

    And to think, all it took was a reference to DELICIOUS CAKE POPS made by MY WIFE.

    Seriously, guys, they were delicious. PB, I recommend you get a wife asap to bake these for you on your birthday. I think she found the recipe on Pinterest.

    I don't need to marry my girlfriend for her to make me great food. Then again in two weeks when it is my birthday she is going to be in Cambodia.

    Monogamy and coupledom don't have to equal marriage. Marriage, in fact, has ruined many a good relationship.



    Then I withdraw my thumb. Take that as you will. :D

    I really like this outfit, especially the tie. nobody else who could wear this tie besides oldog comes to mind, though.

    I myself would have opted for darker shoes.

    Guys - I really appreciate all the comments and feedback! let's me know if/when I'm on track on the changes I've made.

    @pB - I don't think it's the sleeves...it gets pretty tight already when I cross my arms. I have a feeling it's your initial hunch on a shorter jacket + moving the buttoning point and pockets up about an inch with a little bit more of waist suppression in the front.

    EDIT:
    Robopose of the suit prior to alteration:

    Mind you, this is already a 38S

    The missus and I celebrate our tenth anniversary this week, and we spent the weekend sans sprogs on Tomales Bay. I came across this tribute to o/o and Mrs. o/o in a shop in Point Reyes Station:

    PB was talking about something being amiss yesterday and it was driving me crazy, but this is what I think I'm seeing:

    You seem to have a slightly dropped right shoulder. The sleeve head pitch is also pretty far off on your right arm (slightly off on your left, but not that bad). This creates a pull and pucker at the armpit. You can see the wrinkles and divot in your armpit much more clearly in the "before" picture. The alterations helped, but I fear the pitch of the sleeve head is just not suited to you and is making for a slightly awkward silhouette that throws off the symmetry and balance of the jacket.

    All and all I don't think it's a big deal and think you look good, but I had to put my hypothesis out there.
