    Only when I clicked the on the picture for a zoom view did I notice the rich colors and fabric of the trousers. After seeing the close-up view, I'd say either shirt is a winner.

    Agree about the knot, but disagree about the tie - I think it looks great! Not the best fit with the jacket though, there is something about the colour of the jacket that clash with the tie.

    Re. exposed collars, I'd like to contradict some previous assertions.

    It's an accepted wisdom that the point of the collar should be hidden when the jacket is buttoned. In general I'd agree, especially with a formal suit. But I also think that's a particularly English style - usually based on a spread/cutaway collar that's definitive of the "City gent" look. It certainly looks smart, and it's a look I'm often wearing myself. That standard Jermyn Street style plain or striped shirt, the solid or pin striped blue/grey suit, and a fairly heavy tie. As far as serious business style goes, that's pretty much it, and never wrong.

    But i response to the debate on Mr Victor's exposed collar points, I'd like to offer a word in defence: the "French" collar, or really shirts in much of continental Europe, has a longer point that heads down rather than out. In which case, unless the suit or waistcoat has a very high gorge, it's going to show. It's usually accommodating a less chunky tie, too, for a look that's slightly less aggressive merchant banker, and more man-about-town gallery owner!

    As most of these recent pictures (I've only been looking at this thread for a few days) from Mr Victor show him in a more casual summer suit, I think this style of shirt, with French collar, perhaps a knitted tie, suede shoes, etc, is perfectly appropriate.

    Each to his own. I have double cuffed shirts for work with both French/pointed and English/cutaway collars. I'd say the latter is never wrong - especially with a pin stripe and a fat, strong tie, for a formal business look. But I don't think it's fair to say the former is always wrong either. With a linen suit, brown or burgundy shoes and a more delicate Italian tie, I think it works for me just fine.

    Thank you.

    It really is a gorgeous jacket. My crappy pics don't do it justice.

    Just perfect! I often do the same pairing, sometimes with a brownish paisley pocket square.

    I would prefer the brighter (left) shirt.

    You need to work on your snatch technique. The rest is pretty good.

    The squats aren't near parallel, they're more like 3/4 of a full squat. Lower the weight if you must, but you're neglecting a boat-load of glutes and quads. Form needs to be perfect if you want to do CrossFit (which is why I'm generally against it). Fun to see a form video though, keep at it! :)
