    Drakes in general has narrowed a bit though in reality, this one doesn't strike me as narrow the way it lays.

    No, it doesn't look narrow on you. For me I think 8-9 cm is best (wide shoulders).

    Dude, you always look like you're enjoying life. I appreciate that. Nice outfit too.

    I like the shoes, details?

    I would like to see them closer [​IMG]


    Same shoes I'm wearing today, Ferragamo Tramezza tan penny loafers. I think the model name is Denis, but it's been years since I bought them so I'm not certain. I've stopped taking regular close-ups of shoes for my WAYWRN pics. This is a deliberate choice on my part, as I think this gives a more realistic overall impression of the outfit not to over-focus on shoes the way we sometimes do on here.

    A little fun in the sun today.

    It never gets old. [​IMG]

    ...New Suit, thanks whusurdadi
    Thinking of wearing this to my best friend Privateview/my birthday tomorrow night, any ideas for shirt/tie combo's ?
    -TTO


    I love the suit. The current combo is fine, but I feel the tie is a little dark. I'd prefer it with creams, beiges, white and other browns. Paler blues are fine too. You could try greys and blacks with it too for a different look.

    first post here, be gentle

    The photo is very nicely done. As for the outfit, the overall effect is certainly striking, and I suspect, creates the look you want from it. Not to everyone's taste, but I think it's good. The jacket looks a little loose around the collar. Regarding your query about the slimness for the trousers vs the shortness of the leg, I'm afraid that it's a fairly unavoidable trade-off that the narrower the opening, the less break they can take. A slanting hem helps mitigate this to some degree but the underlying trade-off is still there unless you're willing to put up with stacking. The other option I can think of: remember those drainpipe-styled trousers from the 60s with really heavy taper, that came with an L-shaped hem, like an old-fashioned military uniform? If you don't mind the look of that finish, that can avoid the problem. It's a very stylised look though, and I don't think it meshes with the rest of your style.




    New summer trousers today. They're hemmed slightly longer than usual with a full break, partly for a more casual look, but also because the last pair of these I got from this maker (Loro Piana) shrunk about a quarter inch in length after a few cleanings, so I wanted to account for that rather than go too short initially.

    I like the coat cloth, HF. And the shirt with it.

    Ho hum today . . . [​IMG] Bad pic too; I'm a certifiably lousy photographer. Shirt is actually a lavender micro-gingham. Cranked up definition and sharpness to try to get it to show, but all it did was make the pic look worse. Old detail shot of shirt and blazer:

    No, just bad lighting. Go outside and take photos (use timer) in natural light, they will look so much better with that nice camera you have there.

    Have a good one,

    Not sure MB...I don't know if the heavy texture of the tie works with the heavy texture of the jacket. But thank you for not looking angry/ constipated today. [​IMG]

    Nice jacket. What do you usually request for shoulder wise on your suits? Small rope?

    He calls it a bevelled shoulder, though sometimes I'll ask for the waterfall. Frank thinks the bevelled looks best on me.
