    @Derek: lovely ensemble - not sold on the thin blade showing thougth, but maybe that's just me...

    Experimented a bit with colours and patterns today. Might have overdone it though :) Suit is navy btw.

    exactly, and also learning to dress for your body. Citan would benefit from higher rise trousers and given how thin he seems to be in the middle, he should do less waist suppression (the opposite of what everyone here would tell him) then he currently does. A bit less suppression, a bit more space at the thighs/butt for his jacket and the coats would not have that extreme hourglass shape. When you first come on here, slim is everything and you have a tendency to go overboard. You can still have a very nice silhoutte on a jacket without having it come in so much at the waist and have such open fronts/quarters.

    Totally agree. His pants are usually fairly high waisted. Higher than the average around here for sure. I totally agree with Ed on the jacket though. With so much jacket suppression it makes his hips look a mile wide. I think Citan should work on that for his next purchases.

    yes, and look how high the fly ends and how he is getting some mooseknuckle. The point of the higher rise trousers would be to have his pants where he wears them now and also giving some breathing room to his crotch.

    Not to beat a dead horse, but the unbuttoned picture seems to clue in on the issue with some of Citan's fits. From the picture (and that is all i can go off) it appears your upper body is not proportional to your lower body. I do not know if it is being caused by where you have your belt at. But if there was to be a full length picture, i think it would provide a clearer picture.

    If that is the case in terms of body type, then a longer coat with a lower buttoning point would better elongate the upper part of your body to balance it against the lower part (pants). Also wearing your pants lower on your hip would help.

    I think.

    Ah, then I agree, but I believe this pair could sit just a little bit lower. Not in the hips, of course, not even near. Just a little bit lower, maybe that would be enough to fix the crotch as the rise looks quite high already... it looks like both the pants and the jacket waist are sitting higher than his true waist...

    I don't think you can get Israeli citizenship on the strength of that, but if Stitchy's cool with it, who am I to argue?
