    I feel like you could benefit from narrower plackets. the width on this one paired with the small bow tie and your frame throws off the proportions.

    ok, there's still a lot of improvement for e.g. victor, whom you mentioned in your former statement, doing it well.

    besides victor- sorry for picking him out, but he's exemplary for dressing well and not congruent with the wheels(shoes) - there are a few phenomens i monitored on sf, mostly exclusive to muricans, anyway.

    -people tend to micromanage their clothes and think their choice of shoes can be let to groupthink.

    -muricans are afraid of sizing. actually one size up is three millimeters in length or width. actually this can be all or nothing. get aware of it.

    -considering that people have different foot shapes due dilligence is of advantage. this is a learning process. see micromanaging above.

    no need to enhance the basic understanding of feet against shoes at this point.

    taking victor as role model.

    point of departure: small and wide feet.

    he favors short and wide lasts. c&j and trickers caters him.

    i assume fit is good. no creasing and other visible parameters.

    where's the improvement?

    imo and from a subjective point of view, the proband is building his wardrobe around his body(shape) with exceedingly carefulness to fit and appearance. on the other hand, the choice of shoes is a mixture of brand slavery and lack of attention, imo.

    he walks in his shoes, not me.

    he claims to be fussy with proportions, not me.

    discuss.

    Next time...start with this statement towards his outfit if THIS IS IN FACT what you were trying to say....get it?
    It comes off a bit more appealing than saying such things about him having a terrible body.

    I to agree that some of the clothes seem a bit more form fitting then they should be.

    Might be the angle or the bad lighting. While I don't love the fit, I don't think it is a disaster. I will try better photos.



    Thanks Ed.

    You must have missed the slagging I took for them early on...

    Thanks, Doc. It's certainly more conservative than where I started out.

    This isn't Sir F.

    I, along with many other SFers think that you should try and come across a little less blunt when ur trying to describe or insult another males human body figure. Unless of course it's that important to you how other men's body's are built...

    I'm on my iPhone, so I don't have the patience, to thank you all individually, but thanks to all of you guys who thumbed-up; I appreciate it! :)

    Holdfast, the trousers are light blue. The SC has the same blue running throughout the checks. I think it works/I like it, but I might consider white! :)

    Whoever asked about the lapel flower, search Eric E. on this board: Two cost me 18 bucks! :)
