    That would explain it! Really wonderful shape - the man not only responsible for his own excellent product, but the shape of about 70% of the "Vass P0rn" on this site too.

    +1 to what Justin said, too. That really is a wonderfully cut jacket.

    Hahaha. Yes, perhaps just one step too many. Maybe even if the shirt had been white instead of pink, it might just have carried better. +1 on the shoulders though: so many jackets seem to have an extra inch either side on the shoulder, or worse, be the latest idiot fashion that looks like a school uniform outgrown the previous year (Ryan Gosling, anyone?). This sits just right, and a nice clean, military-style shape to the slant.

    Tell me about it. At 198 cm it has been hard (ie. almost impossible) to find RTW suits and jackets that fit well. And even harder to accept that MTM/bespoke is the only way to go in this case...

    Studies have shown that taller men, statistically, tend to earn more. Maybe this is a natural selection to allow bespoke tailoring and business class air travel! In the mean time, if it's any consolation, I like your style - money well spent.

    I have heard that story about height and salary as well. Can't say that my paycheck follows that pattern though.

    I wish I I had money for business class when traveling, the leg room in coach I usually rather incufficient.

    fellow 200cm person reporting in. luckily my company is very generous when it comes to business trips, hotels and flights. thy always let me fly business or if non existent first class. though if i make a vacation i'm usually way too cheap to pay the significant upcharge or use my frequent flyer miles. i simply book economy and ask to be seated in the first row or at the emergency exit. 50% of the time, this works all the time. remember kids, no flight attendant wants to see a grown man cry.

    You could just cut off 13cm of yours and add it to myself and we would both come out at exactly 185 cm in the end.
    Would it make both of us happier men?
    Honestly, I think no matter which way you turn out to be, you will always hate on certain aspects of it.
    This is at least general consensus on your hair, but I think it does also apply universally and to height as well.
    In the end I still think being unusual tall is superior to unusual small because an athletic/slim silhouette is what is pleasing to most eyes at our times and is more easily achieved by somebody tall than by a small man who often suffers from his "fat" waist/hips preventing the clothes from falling vertically eventhough they might only be something like 30 inches wide.

    The picture was taken purely for fun. In the real life I wore the jacket with a pair of chino, and without tie and hat.:)

    Although I travel a lot for work, I work at a university so coach is what I get to travel in, no business class for me. But I agree on the emergency exit strategy, that's what I always try to myself.



    I agree with you. There are always some things about yourself you are less than satisfied with, as the saying goes: "the grass is always greener...". However, except for a few situations, the aforementioned air travels being the most important, being tall is generally a good thing in todays society. Besides it give's me a fully legitimate reason for buying bespoke clothes :D

    Colours in the photo are slightly screwed up today (or rather, more screwed than normal); the narrow-wale cords are a dark forest green rather than the near-black they appear here:

    Last of the summer weddings today, so one last romp for this jacket... Who am I kidding? This is Texas. It's only just now becoming appropriate weather to wear a jacket again.
