    Yes, yes I know, my only defense is that the tie is so damn thick that it's near impossible to get even a small dimple in. I'll be handing my SF membership card in at the end of the day :embar:

    It's now clear, but colder in NYC - time to break out a hat, along with another three-piece suit.

    Suit - BB
    Shirt - H & K
    Tie - Marino Gabbri
    Cufflinks - Longmire
    PS - Ashear
    Shoes - Harris, via Barney's NYC

    I particularly love this tie (great fit as always, of course)

    You really look like the brother-in-law DEA agent from Breaking Bad.

    This suit fits well in the body and has a really nice lapel roll, but the sleeves need to be longer and the trousers need to be shorter. I also think a suit with less padded, square shoulders would flatter you more. The shoulders on this one give you a blocky look that makes you seem heavier than you are.

    Oh, and IMO the tie is ugly and you should tuck the pocket square down a bit so it shows just a quarter inch or so.

    "...the tie is ugly..." Well, this is a bit harsh--especially without offering a suggestion. While Kai's tie is not my cup of tea, I am all for letting the gentleman experiment.

    Maybe use the trick that one of the tailors gave and move the shirt sleeve button in so the sleeve ends right where your hand starts. It might look better but the coat sleeve might still be a little long.

    I like the way the red goes with the color of the sportcoat and white dress shirt. I might try a solid red one with a brown sportcoat I have but I have to get it tailored first. Thanks!

    Looks like grey worsted. So even if it's not an orphaned suit jacket it looks like one.

    um, what? the coat sleeves are far from too long. The shirt sleeves could be 1/4" or 1/2" shorter. The coat sleeves are fine most likely, and certainly not too long.

    Not happy with how the grey v-neck jumper works with the rest of the colours today. I blame it on still feeling half asleep when getting dressed, and deciding I needed a jumper at the last minute and not really thinking about what colour to use. Square isn't ideal either (a darker complementary colour would have worked better).

    But anyway...

    upr_crust I'm 5'6'' so very short (and fat with a disproportionate neck-body - very unfortunate I know :(). I would love to shorten the coat but as yywwyy pointed out, the buttons are positioned so slow that shortening the coat would ruin the overall balance. I bought it because I thought it's a very nice cashmere-wool overcoat (and partially because the salesperson was such a sweet talker); when I'm home I'll post a pic of me wearing the coat with the buttons closed so you guys can help me judge if alteration is needed. Maybe I can shorten it by 1-2 inches only.

    I wish that I could work in the fashion industry :)). The interview was actually for a job at a management consulting firm. I know it's a bit flashy to bring an LV to an interview but to be honest, I don't think that many people would recognize the Damier Graphite pattern. I personally like this cover bloc very much; it's nice and functional so why not? Plus, as far as I'm concerned, management consultants are fairly snobbish and I've seen them (and the receptionists at their firms) looking down on students not looking the part when going to the interviews. And Claghorn, I do wish that my friends are generous enough to gift me LV :)) - Plz be my friend if you're that type of friend :)).
