    that does look pretty. maybe next time. just for you, and mr. drake. thanks!


    cuz that definitely wouldnt make me look like ive got the hots for you. i am more well versed in punching people than i am manually stimulating them, maybe thats why i shifted in that direction.

    either way, well done with the advise.

    i think ian will do a fine job.


    who ever knows? :confused:

    Joshua, Your outfit looks great man, I am sure you got a compliment or two on your outfit at the wedding as well !!

    Nitpick Crit: Tie looks a long, maybe change the FIH into a DFIH and cinch it tighter at the collar to use up the length.
    I really like how the tie picks up the colour in the trousers and I like the look of the white PS, nice [​IMG]
    The dress watch looks classy peeking out of the cuff there, also nice cuff showing.

    Looks good Sir!!
    However, IMO a white shirt with a much stiffer collar and more fervent necktie knot completed with a white TV fold PS would look more dignified and imposing.

    Thank you for the compliments. I was hunching over ever so slightly, which makes the tie appear longer. However, now I think a DFIH would of been more appropriate nonetheless.

    Noting your popularity in this thread, may I suggest a diet rich in beans - we wouldn't want you to run out of gas mid-interviews.

    All the individual pieces are very nice, and they fit well too. In addition, your haircut is very sharp. However, I can't get over the disparity between the top and the bottom - the top is very formal (wedding tie, navy coat which looks like part of a suit, FC shirt...) while the bottom is casual (brown scotch grain bluchers, cotton pants). IMO, either you should just wear full suit and black shoes, or make the top less formal (change the shirt, and maybe wear less formal tie).

    Many thanks to SpooPoker, Kai, Johnboy, Fred49, EFV, RDiaz, MrDaniels, Requiem, sugarbutch, Holdfast, VictorSFreturn, SeaJen, ian, and clapeyron for your thumbs up and good suggestions. It's always nice when "old stuff" in the closet still has a little punch.

    I agree totally, that trousers which are too slim on bigger guys makes the problem looks worse. (TBH, there is absolutely no difference between a larger man and a slimmer one, on paper; if trousers are too tight/wide, they are too tide/wide!) What I am trying to suggest may have been miscommunicated. stiches would benefit greatly from a harder line from waist to leg opening (think Spoo--haha, the man-love continues! :p); ATM, his trousers kind of droop on him, which makes any affect, that he is large, look totally worse. Like I noted, I think maybe a 1.75–2" cuff, and less break would make his leg-line look better (*I'm sweating*). IDK whether it's the break, ATM, the lack of cuff, the leg opening or the width, but something is definitely off!

    I am not wearing it (hasn´t been to the tailor yet) just trying out patterns on patterns. Is it too much?
    Navy moleskins and C&J chukkas.
    Shirt is Ashwood and Blake. Tie is from Pari.

    Love the jacket, but switch to a light blue shirt and perhaps a more rustic tie.
