    no native speaker here, I meant how much overlap he pinned at the buttoning point.

    is the first one a Chan, too?
    the final decision on jacket length is a personal one, can't tell much from the finished jacket with the shirt untucked and your feet not included in the shot, but it looks like it's covering your butt. so i'd say that works well especially if you are short, as you said.

    I couldn't perform a golf swing in a jacket not even with armholes high enough to cut of blood circulation, maybe with raglan sleeves :)


    @tits: how is critiquing a garment which can yet be fully altered more ludicrous than critiquing a finished garment where most alterations are not an option any more?

    I would imagine that proper meditation on your question will lead to the appropriate answer.

    I'd very much appreciate you to not act like a douche, tits.

    I see you are from dallas, I went to mckinney high school as an exchange student quite some time ago. from my experience people from texas are usually very friendly

    Obviously you did not meet many from Texas. Had you, perhaps you'd have heard the saying (which I'm sure is not unique to us) "You ask a stupid question, you get a stupid answer."

    SB that jacket is absolutely wonderful. The shoulders, cut, and fabric are perfect for you and your build. I love the large pattern balanced by the solid tie. Definitely something I will catalog for later copying...er...inspiration.

    Spoo, the first fit is really busy, almost too many elements. However, I think that is just in the close up, from a distance it is probably less dizzying. Love the suit obviously but I much prefer it with a blue shirt for some reason. Maybe just me?

    HF, I love your sweater collection, nice cardigan, looks thick!

    Tir, I love that hat and I think it clashes wonderfully with the rest of the look. I swear that is a compliment.

    EFV, that fit is dazzling. You do country so well. Every time you post an earth toned outfit you excel. Bravo.

    BlackUmbrella, I like the grey tie with that SC. What trousers may i ask?

    Something casual with which to end the week.

    Playing with some of my "new toys" (the cords and the waistcoat) . . .

    All is from BB, except the PS (PRL), the scarf (Aquascutum) and the hat (Tesi)

    ^^^ I wouldn't have creased the cords, but otherwise I like it! Pushes me another centimeter toward getting a camel hair SC.

    EFV, this is fantastic. Easily the best-fitting suit I have seen for a quite a while here and you can almost feel that fabric. The colour combination is working, textures, patina of the shoes - all great. And a simple PS to round it off. Details?

    The cords ARE creased - it's merely that they're BB Milanos, and my legs barely fit inside them :embar::)



    The SC I bought prior to being my current weight, and recently had re-tailored to fit the somewhat smaller me. The shoulders are still a shade large, but for casual wear, I'll bear up under the strain of a less-than-optimal fit.

    The overcoat I picked up at one of BB's warehouse sales about three years ago or so - a very lucky find.

    Re-read that, SeƱor Crust. CM doesn't like the creases.
