    It's not a great pic, or pose for assessing fit. But your shirt collar is definitely too big and I am pretty sure the jacket fit is very off. And come on, you know you are posing for a pic for this forum and you are looking in a mirror...did it not occur to you to fix your tie knot? :satisfied: That said, I like the look of the outfit and you would look quite polished if the fit were better. Good luck, padawan.

    Second go at the heavy wool tie. Same tie, different color. I did a better job with the shirt (which is more of a commentary on my previous choice than this one). This whole wool tie thing takes some figuring out (knots and texture).

    ^ That suit seems a bit too business-y for a wool tie, IMO. If you have tweed sportcoats, that's the perfect tie.

    It's an odd jacket, but yeah, I see what you mean about mismatching levels of formality. It's one of two jackets I own that have some sort of orange...uhh...what do you call small amounts of color in clothes? As far as tweed. wouldn't that be too many rough textures?

    It was much less harmonious, mostly because of a poor choice of shirt.

    If it's an odd jacket it kinda looks like an orphaned suit jacket... [​IMG]

    ------------------------------------

    Trying out new tweed MTM SC. I'm on vacation so I took pic @ home, where lighting sucks, camera is worse and I have no space to move; so please excuse the poor quality. Looks like someone else wanted to appear in the picture, too [​IMG]

    It was steeply discounted, so to be honest, it wouldn't surprise me.

    Thanks [​IMG] It fits rather well regarding balance and overall body shape, and I'm happy as I'm definately making progress in how MTM fits with this tailor. If armholes were just a bit higher and shoulders softer / more sloped... they are quite restricting right now, and look a bit awkward when I move. Hope that will be fixed next time. Also, I asked for man-sized 11cm lapels and the jacket came with 9 cm ones; it looks like there was some misunderstanding between the tailor and the factory. I accepted it, anyways.
    Also, just ordered a pair of light brown flannel trousers (from the same tailor) to go with it [​IMG]

    In those first two pictures there appears to be some serious bowing in the lapels. The jacket might be too small.

    The length of this jacket works really well for you-- It's a little shorter than yours others, right?

    I'm not even remotely serious.

    Sadly, I have this problem in real life. I deadpan everything (I grew up inspired by Daria), and often times it goes way over people's head. The worst part is, thinking back on it, I am always a little tickled by the fact that they thought I was serious. For some reason, I sometimes find it funnier when I'm the only one in on a joke; probably makes me some sort of jerk ^_^.
