    What I'm wearing today. I wasn't goint to use a SC, but yesterday my tailor brought me the SC he took to do some alterations, so I was eager to use it. I think he needs to reduce a bit the chest.

    Really liked the fit, without the outerwear!
    In my opinion, when donning an outerwear with a suit, it should extend past your suit jacket. Also, the shirt is made of which cloth? I'm not very versed on cloths and I'd like to know more about which shirtings are adequate for which neckties.
    Thank you for posting a great fit that could inspire those questions, at least on me.

    The photograph is less then optimal, but, in my opinion, the chest is fine as is. Yes, it lacks of shape, but that's a RTW, right?
    Honestly, it's so columnar that I can't give you any advises on possibles alterations that would make this jacket more flattering to my aesthetics. However, if it had chest shape, I'm sure that some would be fond of your jacket's silhouette.

    Today definately looks like spring, and I tend to run so warm that I've directly switched to linen mode.

    Betelgeuse - its a nice jacket, but needs some shape. maybe a little in in the chest and some in the waist. as is it looks pretty boxy.

    Diaz - noice fit. fantastic pants.

    I didn't want to alter the chest because of the fear it might limit the motion. But it might need to be a bit reduced.

    Regarding the outerwear - I don't personally mind the length. To each his own right?

    The shirt is a Thomas Mason silver line twill I believe. Its a prototype for a new Eidos collar style I'm testing, so the factory just made it in a fabric they had available. I'd say a pale blue twill shirt like this serves as a neutral ground for really any fall necktie fabric.

    Great suit! Hope to see it in your fall line up. You should cross post that watch in the watch appreciation thread.

    +1 to this. I also think the style of coat is not particularly well matched to the otherwise very sharp ensemble.

    Okay, I was just so not feeling at all conservative today. So I blinged out my navy-and-greys with some serious purplage. What can I say, it suited my mood.

    Everything else is fairly tame.

    Does this count as 3 patterns? Big checks, medium checks, small checks...

    Sorry for the crappy lighting. Note the awesome red cords and the highly disCORDant black shoos. Didn't get the smile or pose quite right, and not sure I captured the spirit of the style.

    Nice combo, but an unusual shirt - contrast buttondown collar, or do my eyes deceive me? The only shirt maker which comes to mind who might make such a shirt RTW would be Paul Fredrick, and I've not seen such an offering from them like that in a while. Yours was MTM?
