    Thanks for all the feedback everyone!

    This was my original post:
    And here's a few of my responses:
    Thanks! Medical professionals definitely do not seem like the type of people from which you should take fashion queues...at least not around where I live.
    Point taken.
    I shouldn't have posted the size since it isn't representative of a 38L. I'm 6'2" and 180 lbs (+/-10 lbs on any given month). My height is mostly in my legs, so I generally get a better fit with a 40R as opposed a long, then have the sleeves lengthened to get the length on my overly-long arms correct--picture Cosmo Kramer from Seinfeld and you'll get a pretty good idea of my build...it made it really hard to find properly-fitting suits and shirts before I discovered tailors and MTM.

    Coat is great on its own. Shirt and tie? Not so much.

    I am admittedly a little suspicious about a legal system without juries ;o) But that aside, great response to a seemingly odd comment. That suit is not my thing but you make it work for you and you are certainly better dressed than the Average Swede.

    Thanks for the reply. I will experiment with other shirts/ties next time I dig out this coat.

    +1. Textures and patterns aren't coherent.

    The jacket is beautiful. Deets?

    Never seen a breast patch pocket in that shape.

    Lovely suit. Not sure about the shirt. But why oh why are you doing that #menswear thing with your tie? As I said to Timotune who has been doing a similar thing, it looks like something copied from GQ - and that isn't good.

    I agree with orge, that tie boaner is ridiculous, silk knot in lapel + sunglasses out of the pocket, doesn't help it out any.

    Like the suit fabric though.

    It's a rosette, not a silk knot. I was my late father's and I wear it every day.

    As for the rest, you know what they say about opinions...

    cool beans about the rosette.

    while you are free hold your opinion, and the main thing is that you are happy with your dress, you do have to admit that some of the elements in your fit are on the spreezy/#menswear side of things. and as long as youre cool with that, rock on.
