    You have big hair then.

    I do. It air dries quickly and always ends up with volume to make Conan O'brien fight David Spade. My wife and my mother hate me for it.

    Looking a bit old-mannish. I'd really consider working on my tie knots if I were you. Beyond that, maybe crappy photographs are to blame, but everything feels so washed out.

    This is amazing. Wasn't going to comment at all today (too much stuff to do), but this changed my mind.


    Thanks, man!!!

    Sad day. Hopefully they are not ruined.


    They will be ok.

    Nice classic look, Nick.

    Considering your day, you look way fine. Sorry about your closet mishap - glad only that it wasn't the suits, and hope that nothing was damaged in the collapse.



    Thanks, Crusty.

    MBrennin-that BD has a nice collar roll, who is the maker?

    Alea.

    That's the burning white sun of a Texas afternoon. When it gets sunny around here, it does not mess around. Anything in particular old manish though?

    Several things: - The boxy cut of the suit - The true 3-button jacket - The low armhole and the wide sleeve - The short lapels - The closed quarters - Roomy pants - Lots of break at the cuff The tie is very nice!

    This just screams "I'm trying so hard."

    How? If anything, it shows a well-made jacket with the collar sitting perfectly and nary a crease.

    Mktitsworth: you got the right idea on the colors. Very classic look. (Light gray suit, white shirt, navy pindot tie, brown shoes). However, the fit is very off. Fit means a lot. I will second what Acecow said. Stay away from 3-button jackets. This is you: [​IMG] This is an example of the same colors with a much better fit: [​IMG]

    N - love the jacket and the tie. I think lighter gray pants would have been better though.

    I forgot the tie photo today. But was a dark brown waffle-y thing on a light blue shirt. Boots need a good brushing.

    I don't think they're too bad, barring being a bit long (are they at your waist?)

    The boxy cut of the suit, however is the killer here. Shoulders feel long, and it could come in a bit at the waist. I don't feel like the quarters are too horribly closed.

    I think the point of a 3 button is to really make a focal point at the top of your chest, so it's VITAL that the cut of the suit complements it. It should be making a V toward the waist to echo the lines at the top (imagine the old Japanese flag and you'll have a better picture of what I mean when I say the line fan out from the center.

    This jacket is also very nice, and the high gorge looks like it creates an interesting effect.
    Like this- except not sure about the notches way up on your traps.
    The gorge is extremely high! I did not like it at first but I am quickly getting used to it. Especially when I didn't need alterations [​IMG]
    DId you put on Alexa's jacket by mistake?

    I used to be that cavalier about zipping my fly. Changed my mind after I damn near put an eye out.
