    1. The pic with the green SC, It looks too big in the SC collar, but fair colours overall
    2. The pic with grey SC, the shirt collar looks too big for you. (there is collar gape round the side and back of the shirt collar).
    3. Grey SC looks very wide in the chest area and could be tapered at the waist to give a better fit.

    Yeah, I'd agree with the others they're hiked up a bit further than they're meant to sit (deliberately so to exaggerate the effect?), but remedy that and they'll probably be OK provided the trouser leg becomes long enough. More importantly, that woman's hair is extraordinary. It's as long as she is tall! Did you ask her how long it took to grow it out that far?

    There's a certain somewhat nerdy/old-fashioned vibe to this that I think would be pleasantly enhanced by removing the square, or at least using a square fold in a linen.

    Pocket protector instead optional.

    It shows. Real professionals use gin. [​IMG]

    This.
    It's good that you're trying a higher rise, but this might be a touch too high,and the high cuffs throw it way off - something between this and your previous fits would be ideal. For these pants I'd try wearing them a tiny bit lower and/or lowering the cuff a bit.

    I aimed for 13.5 inch rise on these, I wanted them to sit just below my navel however, you are right, I need to hike them a little bit for this effect. the pants cost next to nothing. I am testing right now.

    the woman in this photo belongs to the yao women, who are famous for their very long hair.
    they only cut their hair twice in their lives once when they reach eighteen years and once again when they marry. since she doesn't hide her hair coil underneath a black kerchief it means that she is already married.

    as fascinated as I was by her hairdo she in return was very taken by my height.

    Something more relaxed for the end of the week. Today's hat is one that I've had for a very long time, but haven't worn in ages, though, after seeing today's pictures, that is perhaps not a bad thing - I leave that to your judgment.

    Sports jacket, shirt, cords, waistcoat and boots - BB
    PS - no name brand
    Overcoat - Joseph Abboud
    Scarf - RLPL
    Hat - Stetson

    Wow! Perhaps a less of a cowboy treatment to the brim of the hat might help if you're concerned, but I think the hat looks fine.

    I also like the hat. The whole fit looks pretty good. Cords are great (milano fit?). I would like to see a different color shoe or a softer looking shoe maybe. It could be the photo, but the shoes look black and something in brown might be better.

    Tisk tisk, chest puff creates collar gap! That being said the jacket/shirt/tie combo looks great!

    Thank you, gentlemen (Stitchy too - I was posting as you were commenting). The hat is what I believe to be considered an Australian cowboy hat, and was a present from my late husband many years ago. It's not precisely my style, but it doesn't look too bad, though it might look better with a more casual coat (I've a brown leather 3/4 coat which would be a better match - the buttons merely need to be re-attached for it to be wearable in the cold NYC winter).

    The cords are new, and they are BB Milanos - good observation, Chico. I also bought the same in burgundy, which I have some trepidation in wearing, but if I do dare to wear them, I'll post photos, and let you gentlemen have at it :embar:.

    Today's boots are dark brown, and I've been meaning to wear them for a while, hence their appearance today. My alternate choice of footwear would have been a pair of brown suede loafers (Tyrwhitt/Loake - imagine a lesser imitation of Alden full-strap penny loafers), which might have been more in keeping with the soft earth colors of today's fit.
