    I agree, they are tight, but still comfortable and retain the needed room I need. However, feedback is valued and I thank you for that. About loafers, I personally think they can even be worn without socks with a suit, although it will need a much more relaxed suit than what I have here. Overall I think loafers are a perfectly OK option during sunny days and summer in general. And one doesn't have to be in Milan to sport them with a suit.

    Yes, linen, cotton, silk in a less refined weave, something like that. I like the combinations PSG comes up with for this type of jacket. Maybe he could offer some specifics. Plus, he's great with color.

    Thank you!



    I am realizing this shirt should be "relegated", or reassigned, to sports wearing. Regarding the tie, in fact it has a tone-on-tone paisley pattern, with a simmery finish, but I notice now this is not showing well in the pic.



    See above... :nodding:



    I would say the former, even if this means I could be taken as chicken (that is, using that as an excuse). But I am learning, so I would like to read that paragraph! :)

    Thank you all!

    not sure if you're serious, but virtually all competition tables are surfaced with Simonis wool cloth.

    The two ties in the rich purple tone are just fantastic.

    Indeed I am. I think it would make a cool project. And it would be wearable.

    Some might like this but it looks like you're wearing your little brother's suit. Its just way too small for you. And the loafers are an abomination.

    I think the button stance could be a little lower but overall i don't think it's too small

    If you lowered the button stance, then the proportions of the jacket would be off. This is a philosophical divide. Fiddling around at the margins will not lead to a reconciliation. Either you like the short jackets or you don't.

    Its not just short but too tight as well. The arms, shoulders, and chest are at least a size too small.

    Hi! New here... hope I'm posting this in the right thread.

    Recently promoted to a new position at work where I am required to wear suit/sportcoat and tie everyday. Wardrobe is definitely limited, as I haven't invested in any clothes of this type in a long while. Today I'm wearing:

    Shirt: Roundtree & York Gold Label
    Tie: Jos. A Bank Signature Series
    Blazer: H&M

    Still trying to figure out what kind of tie looks best with a spread collar... today I sported a 'Four in Hand'. Thoughts? (ps. I really hate the Windsor Knot)
