    Dislike the peg-leg trou with the DB. It's an out-of-balance look.

    It would be a sin if you didn't even try to bring that striped chick home.

    I think you made a great effort, BUT....

    1. lose the button down shirt collar.
    2. shirt/jacket sleeves too long
    3. trousers too skinny / peg leg
    4. get a pocket square
    5. button the second button on the jacket (it's 6x2 DB)

    I think you look sharp. I would go with a spread collar shirt. Also, I concur your shirt sleeves are too long.

    However, do NOT button the bottom button on a 6x2. It will make you look like a square. It is the equivalent of buttoning the bottom button on a 2 button jacket.

    Agree about the higher buttoning point and wide spread. I am waiting for some sales though on dress shirts. At first I really didn't care too much about spread and not I like wider ones. Unfortunately the suit was a MTM that didn't work out as well as I would have liked, the tailor fixed it as well as he could. Thanks for the reply

    Very warm in Michigan today. At an outdoor party so decided to layer the loose RL madras jacket for a statement.
    Have a good sunday folks.

    That may be the best thing I've seen from you, TKE.

    Thanks. I wasn't sure how much I liked the grey jacket with white pants, but I guess it worked.

    I've recently bought two suits that fit me a lot better and I'm planning on getting a few bespoke suits made within the next week. My cousin gets his suits made from a bespoke place in Manhattan between 42nd and 5th called Enzo Custom Clothiers so I'm going to stop in.
