    no worries. maybe, but i actually like this length. maybe irl it looks different, or maybe more likely i have bad taste.

    i thought about a lighter tie, but i wanted to wear this one, and i wasnt sure what other color would work better. shirt is blue btw.

    trousers are a tad long, but i like em well enough.

    you are probs thinking of the POW jacket, its my best fitting jacket. and yes i do prefer 2 buttons over 3.

    my belly bitton is between the top and middle buttons of the SC.

    I was going to bust your chops about that actually. Your absence of a tie is what made me think your jacket was a sport coat. ;)

    I disagree with everything here except the trouser comment.

    institches,

    jacket is not too long but it is an awful cut for your body. buttoning point way too high, gorge too high, lapels to thin and roll finishes too high, sleeves need to be about 1/2 longer. Subjectively, the pocket square is awful.

    :laugh: i was doing to much walking around in the heat to wear a tie. :)

    also, i didnt have any white shirts. :)


    thank for your input ed. much appreciated. are the sleeves really to short, i think it might be just that my shirt sleeves are sticking out too much?

    this is the first i ever wore a non plain white PS. :( what would you suggest?

    I agree with pB and ed looking at this pic. You would benefit from a wider and longer lapel to a lower buttoning point. You should also hem the pants a bit shorter, even if you like some break. On the sleeves, I think it's a combination of both - shirt a tad long and starting to go over your thumb + suit sleeves hemmed a tad too high (ans maybe at an angle that's a bit off as well)

    thanks G, i would to ask you though, how it comes of irl. that was the suit i was wearing when we met.

    i know you were distracted a tad by my sheer handsomeness, and also by your kids, but how do you recall it coming off when you saw it in person?

    it came off in a violent fury of passion and tossed nonchalantly on the motel room floor.

    Awesome. Absolutely awesome. Never was a fan of brown ties but it looks fantastic. The blue color of the suit is gorgeous.Would be nice if the tie would be a little crisper but the overall look is great, definitely one of my favorite outfits.

    timotune, (great clothes) is this meant, to be a joke? 'Follow me on Tumblr:' While I have nothing against Tumblr (I have my own), I appreciate the joke! :) :p
