    It can be confusing to the uninitiated.

    Did you happen to get the number of the carny who dropped off your coffee table?

    Deets on the slippers? I'm a fly fisherman and would love them for around the house.

    I really have to get a better camera, the iPhone sucks in low light. And light is rapidly becoming a rare commodity here up north...

    Yeah, I completely understand where you're coming from and agree with you totally. It's tough trying to even compete with some of the outfits here as I really get very little, if any opportunity to dress up smartly. So when I try to pair my ties with outfits I struggle! I really should have not worn a tie but I wanted to try it out as I haven't worn that one yet.

    Cheers Nick

    Tiny knot is fashionable, but looks odd with a spread collar. French collar/small knot/thin tie has better proportions, if that's your thing...

    Since someone was complaining about the lack of 'fit-pics', I tried to combine the crap robo-pose with one in which you can actually see the fabrics etc. Shoe pic is really for those on the 'Cool Shoes, Paraphenalia and Desiderata" thread who spotted these in my size on ebay...

    Deets
    Suit: a date uncertain vintage suit, made in West Germany from Italian fabric (Reda Regal, which is really beautiful and the grey is rather more blue-grey IRL, and the reason I bought the suit) for a minor local UK department store, that I had altered (wrinkles on trousers are merely the result of me having to walk backwards quickly in time for the shot, sleeve length is the English style (i.e. approximately the same as the shirt sleeve length) - but I may change them further;
    CT Black Label shirt;
    Carouzos tie and vintage tiebar (thanks, Dave Davenport!);
    C&J for PRL dark brown suede monks (+boring socks).
    No PS - I am actually wearing squares less and less these days.

    Was the jacket length one of the alterations?

    Long gorge, low pockets, looks like it was shortened, right?

    Yes, well-spotted, you two. Not by that much, but enough to change the balance a little. IRL, you really don't notice, but of course with a robo-pose, you do. I guess I could have the flaps of the pockets removed, which would draw less attention to the shortening - actually just tucking them in does the trick.

    This is a general problem for me right now. I am gradually converting to having everything made bespoke but it takes time and money (or if you don't want it to take time, you have to have a lot more money). So in the meantime, rather than waste that money I need to save for bespoke, I buy the occasional second-hand pieces in decent fabrics that have a good general overall fit, and with some alterations will do for now, even if they are not perfect. That's life.

    Getting everything in shot is not straightforward.
