    Those red pants are awesome. I noticed with the shorter cut on those jackets, it makes your torso look very compact compared to your legs. With the picture containing the lighter coat paired with the button down shirt, this affect isn't as prevalent. I think this proportioning looks much better on you. It might also be the closed quarters on that jacket as well.

    Thanks. And you are correct. I actually prefer non bum freezers my self as well, however finding the near perfect RTW jacket has most times led me to only finding bum freezers (I wish this trend of making short jackets would soon end). The problem of being 6 foot 2 and wearing a size 36 jacket with narrow shoulders :)

    Konda: as we here just had this discussion about my jacket, I think your gray jacket looks off. It looks too short, but that's mostly due to poor front-back balance (correct me if I'm wrong). That is, the front looks weirdly "lifted" making you look like you have a pouch and creating the effect of a disproportionately short torso. But since I can't see the back of the jacket, maybe it's just too short. The other 2 seem fine.

    hard to see it, and im not a square guy anyways. but i will say the rest of the fit is very tasteful. i would only recommend a longer collar that reaches, and preferably goes under, your jacket lapels.

    It's pretty impressive. His daily post counts are close to 100 many days. I don't even know where he is posting to get that many posts in a day. There must be some sneaky DT threads he's going nuts in...

    Cue stitchy's reply to this in 5... 4... 3...

    Even with a mental sheen deduction, I'm not sure that tie works with the jacket.
    You are correct. :D Seriously, though, the tie and hank are so shiny that they just clash with the nubby jacket fabric.
    You really look nothing like I imagined. (Neither good nor bad thing, to be clear, just very different than what I expected. Kinda like when Darth Vader was unmasked...) What made today your big internet debut day?
    Others have raised my objections to the choice of shirt and tie with that suit, so I'll just say, "Ditto."
    Does not look objectionable from this distance, but if you want more definitive reactions, you'll need a closer shot.

    He must have the highest post-to-pocket-square ratio in the universe.

    its really 2 years and 3 months. that is a lot different. right?

    do you want a serious answer or a witty joak answer?

    i would say, more importantly, did you like todays fit, but if you did not like it, i dont want to know. :)


    i post in many a place. im not sure if its impressive or grotesque.


    what did you expect. were you not expecting the handsome devil you now see before you?

    i never really had an issue with posting my face, just never had a pic that i liked. this one, i like. i thought it was a nice pic all around.


    i admit, this did make me LOL.

    This is a great way to punch up a low contrast outfit.

    Well done!

    I, for one, would LOVE to know when people doesn't like an ensemble of mine, and, if possible, why. That is what really helps when trying to improve...

    That tie looks great, HF. So does the shirt collar.
