    No. Absolutely not. You get no protection whatsoever. eBay is great; the one time I've had an issue, they handled it wonderfully. And when you pay on eBay, you pay through Paypal anyway (I believe they are now the same company)

    Stitchy, I hate to say this, but it makes me think of Men's Wearhouse.

    Totally depends on the level of trust between you and the other guy, as you obviously forego all the ebay dispute process. You still have the paypal ones, of course, but IIRC from last time I looked, they're not as generous.

    So it depends on whether you trust the guy (and vice versa, actually). Caveat emptor et mercator!

    Not intending to single you out stitchy, but this is precisely the kind of stripe that I really, really dislike.

    I think stripes should be evenly spaced. I also prefer then a bit wider spaced, but that's not my real issue in this case. What it is, is that if they're not evenly spaced, it should instead be blindingly obvious that there's a deliberately different spacing between stripes. But in this suit, the width alternates between stripes by a really small amount. Enough not to be obvious as such at first glance, but still enough to seem "off" for some undefineable reason. On top of this, your specific tie choice is particularly frustrating with this type of suit fabric, because it too has an unevenly spaced stripe. The two patterns together mean you've got a whole heap of varyingly-spaced stripes, which creates a rather strobey effect. (The tie would be nice with a solid suit, mind you, or even with a wider-spaced, even stripe).

    Colours are fine, though. It's the patterns that do my head in. Of course, this may just be a personal bete noire, but thank you for the opportunity to rant. ;)

    The level of formality of his jackets and ties is fine with khakis IMO... I've been doing that a lot lately too.

    Taking the new (to me) navy chalkstripe out for a test run. Very happy for the chill today.

    wow. you cut deep today, SB. real deep. :(


    no worries. as soon as i looked in the mirror i knew it was off. too late to change tho. posted just to see what specifically people would find wrong with it, and how better to use the individual items. thanks for the feedback. :)


    its not bad, for sure. just a td off to my eye. no biggie. as noted above, my eye is not always the greatest.

    Agreed on cuffs but unfortunately the suit was second hand and there wasn't enough fabric for them.

    Stitch: I've got a light brown pair of wool herringbone being altered at the mo. They would have been a better choice with the outfit.

    The jacket has elbow patches so it's quite informal but I see what you're getting at.

    Shoes are Antonio Meccariello MTO.

    Nick Pollika: gorgeous suit and tie (can no longer give thumbs-up for some reason).

    This jacket is going to be slimmed overall, do you think it would be wise to have the sleeves tapered as well?

    It is getting increasingly difficult for me to distinguish the bulk of the images in here from what I see at AAAC.
