    Don't listen to anyone on here regarding the fit of your suit but YOURSELF! For real bro your shit is spot on! Especially in this look. The pants break "no break" perfectly. The suit looks like just the right length and personally I like loafers with a suit. Right on Bro (Y)

    I have that same Lands' End tie! I still haven't worn it yet but I love the texture. It looks like raw silk. :D

    The length of the jacket on the wearer is fine. There's nothing wrong with it. I always wear 42S myself and I notice virtually all the newer suit jackets are shorter.

    But I do think the left sleeve on the jacket needs to lengthened about half an inch.

    If you want the picture to get a fair judgement you should really post a pic that shows the entire outfit. 4-in-hand is always the best knot imho, regardless of collar spread.

    I've always wondered; you seem to be always leaning slightly forward in your photos. Is this due to bad posture or the angle of the photo? It makes you look like you have a hunchback.

    At first, I thought I should bracket 'these are loose terms'/'you get the gist, of what I'm saying,' but I thought you'd all be smart enough, to figure it out. But, alas! (Let's see, if you're smart enough, to get that one, you condescending arse.)

    Maybe he's built like Jonah Falcon and gravity's just taking hold.

    No.

    Manton already mentioned on a previous post. The manufacturer is a Spanish company called Gorina.

    jester, i was replying to rambo. you know what it mean? actually the china man copies everything, so it is not inherently wrong.

    look, listen and learn.

    The high quality felt used in competition that Rambo mentioned is not manufactured in China. It is either Spain - (Gorina) or Belgium (Simmons). If you play snooker (UK) Strachan Stroud is the cloth of reference. Although the cloth is called felt, in reality it is a blend of worsted wool and nylon (usually 85/15).

    China copies everything but his clothes are not used in competition billiard.

    Hope you have learned something please keep on looking and listening

    My parents refelted their pool table years ago. It was with Simonis.


    CEP, looks good, but I think you would look better with more chest in your suits. I think this is P.Johnson, right? I know he likes trimmer stuff, but more chest will give it more shape and even more illusion of a trimmer waist. Also, I think the skinny arms look a bit out of proportion, plus they wrinkle easier.


    I understand the gist of what you are saying, but not everybody probably does. I wasn't being condescending at all, just silly. I think my post is very helpful, especially when there are so many questions where people ask if something fits and it isn't a simple matter, of buy the next size up.
