    Spring is here. Cotton and linen are back.
    Jacket deets? [​IMG]

    Hopefully today is better.
    Many have mentioned their thoughts.

    Listen to PG.
    Listen to Nii.

    I'm between a short and a regular, depending on the maker. If you're not going bespoke, make sure the length is good for you.

    Many thanks to Holdfast for this Paisley tie. :thumbsup:

    lolololololololololololololololol tie is hideous.

    Tie is sweeet. But - suit deets?

    Might want to dial back the saturation.

    From the weekend, shock of cold weather. Alas, my tweeds are all stored up now as it is 20 degrees quite consistently. Always a sad day!


    Those are some splendid colors! And the fit is spot on. This photo is a pleasure to look at.

    Thanks for your opinions on the tie. Personally, I rather love it and have gotten nothing else but compliments on it thus far.
    I have found that people often compliment something just because it has grabbed their attention and made them feel the need to say something in a hurry. Compliments don't necessarily equal praise.

    ^ the tie looked like it was from the set of Avatar. In fact, when I donned 3D glasses it looked pretty trippy.
    [​IMG] You've been very funny lately, acrid. Are you doing standup in the evenings? "Take my tie ... please!"

    Since I picked up the scout trooper helmet, the stormtrooper helmet hasn't gotten much use.
    Nerd. [​IMG] I find your lack of faith disturbing.

    A shock of fresh air, also; the slacks and bicycle are my favourite elements. It's good to see you stopping by this thread again

    I like it. You can make the horizontal striped knit work well. I can't.

    One of the more insightful, if annoying, aspects of posting photos here is that one begins to notice all the things that look wrong about one's fit - usually well after it is possible to change it. Thus it is today with the fit of my jacket, which seems to be pulling slightly in the chest (at least to me), as opposed to today's trousers, which are more than a bit loose at the waistline. Argh.

    FWIW then, fellow posters . . .

    This is all meant constructively, no offence meant:

    Understand your face and body type. You are skinny, have a long neck and a high forehead. The skinny means that you will drown in many normal-sized garments. You will look like there's a suit carrying someone around, rather than vice versa. It also means you have to be careful about accessorizing: big cufflinks, shiny ties with big knots and the like will only exacerbate that.

    The long neck means it's a bad idea to have the long collar points you have. You will improve balance no end by getting wider-spead collars. It also means you might need a higher collar. It might be useful trying out MTM shirtmakers.

    The high forehead calls into question your hairstyle and facial hair. Your current hairstyle accentuates the forehead, and your facial hair makes the lower half of your face very busy. Combined with the long neck and skinniness, it results in an unflattering picture.
