    I would like the tie knot a bit tighter. Other than that. Perfect!

    Thank you, Citan, for your comments. I did notice the slight gap at the collar in my full-length pic, but think that it is due more to the pose than the suit - I did check myself out in the mirror yesterday evening on that very topic, and I think that I'm OK, but I'll watch for that in future.

    The shoes yesterday were Crockett & Jones, found at Barney's, which, I believe, had them designed especially for them. I picked them up several years ago, and they have served me well.

    I'll pass your compliments on the tailoring of my trousers to the alterations staff at Paul Stuart's :satisfied:.

    Victor, by tie space he means the space between collar ends that is right above the knot, where the collar is buttoned. I agree for bulky knots it looks better when there's some space, like this:

    I agree that the narrow button stance seems to throw off the fit/line of the jacket, but there was an article on Brunello Cucinelli last month where he was pushing this style. Included was a pic of him and the interviewer in similarly styled jackets, and BC listed his staple times and included a 'one and a half breasted' blazer.
    It had the air of desperation of someone trying to foist some kind of pointless signature style on the public but to me reeked of fashiondom. Let's see, we've had DBs, we've had SBs, we've had SBs with peak lapels ... Let's combine SB with DB - Brilliant! The male version of skorts!
