    It's his last attempt to solidify himself as a member of SF lore. It's a final effort to ensure that, when the annals of SF are writ, he has at least a passing mention. His previously ephemeral fame scares him.

    Ok so to derail from the most recent nonsense in this threak and since Spoo is one of the few here that doesn't get bent out of shape when criticized....

    This got a lot of love but as an outfit, it is discordant, incongruent and while great by layman standards, this is a miss. Start from the top:

    A worsted wool "sportjacket" (I'm assuming navy). Can't see the pockets but I'm assuming flap. Either way, there is nothing in this that says that it is not an orphan suit jacket. No texture, no interesting weave. Paired with a plain white shirt, the ultimate CBD shirt. Then, add a textured tie that seems to be some sort of blend, which would be better paired with linen/tweed/hopsack etc. The pants, again, no indication that they are not part of a suit, which is not as a big of a sin when it comes to pants, but just very blah when paired with a blah upper half. Then the shoes. I hate the current fad for fugazy antigued, highly polished elongated lasts so I'm going to dislike these shoes in any application but here they just make no sense color wise. In this outifit, you have to go black shoes are very, very dark brown/oxblood. I hope you are not wearing one of those croc belts.

    Worth a re-post.

    I suggest further remediation for you, young man...your character flaws are clear to all of us on the boards. [​IMG]

    I think Victor looks great. The outfit is well put together. The colors, textures, and patterns are nice. The overall shape of the coat is pleasing, particularly for someone with his body. However, Bhowie's comment about the fit issue is not incorrect, and it's clear from the picture above. The collar on this coat sits low and is not hugging his neck. It's more sort of resting on his traps. It's not a huge issue, but it's a noticeable flaw. I'm sure some would call it picking nits, but that's what we often do here.

    :cheers:

    Ed, I appreciate the commentary, but perhaps the edmorel school of photography (in two different light sources) failed to properly display the fact that this is a suit, not a SC/pant combo. Had it been though, your points would have totally been valid.

    You are right about the shoes in this context though, shoulda been black.

    Thank you for taking the time to make a detailed critique though.

    Holy Moly those are bad pics if that's a suit !!! Anyway, black shoes would be better and that pocket square is a bit weak sauce but I stopped wearing squares so take that for what it's worth.
