    clags is indeed known to like the hard 3.

    Thanks a lot guys, appreciate it [​IMG]

    I received the suit yesterday and was very pleased. I had asked for a copy of a Corneliani suit except for the lapel and notch that are inspired from the measurements of a David Diagne MTM suit (9cm width and small-angle-notch inspired by CAMPS)

    Claghorn considering everyone and their monkey has so much to say, I thought I would too, so....

    IMHO This particular jacket looks much better with both buttons fastened than it would with just the middle one. If both are buttoned it portrays the idea of intention, with middle only it would look more like exasperation or can't be bothered, or don't care. Three buttons done, little miss priss.

    IMHO Pocket Square, I would have gone with white linen with orange or brown edging, edges up and out.

    IMHO Tie, whatever knot, but that knot to have more heft, slightly wider tie would have been better. Wider tie would of course also give the knot more length.

    Example of tie knot. I am sure OP will not mind.

    I can´t decide whether I like the tie or not. It´s a kind of raw silk with a rough texture.
    Let me have your thoughts.

    Soft.

    Of course, and Kent Wang boxers. But I didn't list them since they are not shown.

    I think the biggest issue is simply that the buttoning point is too high. The 3Bs that HRH and Vox are wearing would look alright with the top buttoned, but your buttoning point is at least an inch higher than those. So regardless if you button yours or not, it looks unflattering since it makes the lapel too short and it looks like your torso is wrapped up like a sausage.

    I really like this tie. And, I think it would work, beautifully, with a dark navy blazer or suit.

    JOS

    (not pictured) BB pants (tweedy brown, goes with the squares in the tie)

    Dunno why, but this is the one Jos Banks shirt I really properly like.

    acrid - like the fit a lot...though I am more curious about the whiteboard in the background. Something, apparently, is decreasing.

    I didn't win, but I thought it was a pretty damn good drink.
