    Nice (look and) trousers, nii? What fabric are they?

    thanks NOBD - its brushed cotton. a tad heavy and very smooth to the touch.

    Going to a wedding in a little bit. I'm open to any advice on changes.....

    few nitpicks about the fit of the jacket (shaping in the body, loose collar), emaciated shirt collar etc, ... all in all, it looks well put together and i suspect you will probably stand out in a positive way at the wedding (unless it is all SFers at the wedding).

    i say go, have a blast and enjoy the wedding - and not worry too much about your clothed.

    Nothing to butcher here. Who made that sweet blazer?
    PRL, by Corneliani I guess.

    Honestly though, the pants are a bit too tight and a bit too long, the shirt collar doesn't sit right, brown shoes would've been better, the right shirt sleeve got stuck on my watch and the photo framing is terrible. Mostly minor issues, but they all detract from the whole. Thanks to everyone for the compliments though!

    switch to a plain white shirt and you're good to go. that shirt's way too casual for a wedding. Otherwise looks good.

    Got pretty warm so the jacket came off though. Also sorry for the crappy pictures. Was I overdressed for Rapture? I need to know for next year!

    - hard to critique w/out more information on the wedding.
    - also maybe give us some options that you have in your closet next time
    - otherwise Nii nailed it - see below

    ^ Damn those eggs look good
    - free-range care of MeerCat
    The egg looks great, but they seem to have stolen your bacon and replaced it with lord knows what?
    -TTO

    - savoury mince + carrots + peas...
    What knot is this?
    - unfortunately it is standard SF "Double Four-in-Hand" knot.
    Thanks for the advice, PG ... I think. *[​IMG] Looking around for the sarcasm icon*
    - no sarcasm, just thinking something with classic lines is more befitting
    - nothing wrong with larger watches provided the wearer is wearing it well & not the other way around

    Yes it's tweed. I don't let the seasons dictate my clothing, I wear wool ties year-round. I'm that balla. [​IMG]

    But I got this jacket recently and wanted to give it one wear before Fall. It's not that hot though, only got to be too much when the sun was blazing down.

    The wedding was in suburban Northern California, so I was easily the best dressed there (not to sound arrogant, it's just that there were more than a few guys in jeans). In fact, my buddy that was one of the groomsmen got his tux rented from Mens Warehouse and the pants fit so bad (he wears a 36-38" waist, and they gave him a 48" pair and told him "oh, that's the way pleats fit") that he bought a pair of black Dockers to wear with the tux jacket. So this wasn't exactly a sartorial affair.

    A couple of fit pics from the past week:

    Only took one jacket with me, and it was linen, hence the heavy sleeve wrinkling.

    Thanks, I did. It's been quite a while since I was last there, so I did the full-on touristy thing again. Realised how unfit I was after all the walking around... Lots of fun, though!
