    Interview today - hence no PS.

    Obligatory bathroom pic below - note not tight at the waist, so button pulling is just movement. Pants may need more tapering.

    NICELY pulled off. All around incredible, and love that jacket. Let me know if you decide to sell it, haha.

    Following that fit is not easy, so here's today's 'fit'

    Great briefcase.

    I love the color and pattern play, but I am not feeling the extreme drop on the jacket. I think it looks off. I would either look for something that is not as constructed in the chest, or not slim it in the waist as much. I am not saying the jacket doesn't fit you well (I see no pulling, etc), BTW, just that the cut isn't flattering.

    I dig the colors, but i wonder if the casual nature of the pants really goes with the jacket? From what I can see they are not creased, and the jacket seems to be structured, etc. Just a thought.

    +1 Exactly.

    Mumbai today. HOT and sticky, even fresco not cutting it, first meeting no one wearing tie or jacket. I now in shirtsleeves with no tie. Much better. Chan; Jantzen; Hober; C&J. PS was the little napkin thing I found under the fruit in my room. Attachment 65058Attachment 65059Attachment 65060

    LOL, TB. [​IMG] Shit, Tom. You just made me snort a little coffee up my nose.

    Hey, Mal - be careful of the deer behind you - looks like it's whispering 'sweet nothings' in your ear or gettin ready to lick the back of your head. [​IMG]

    Dear, P...looks a little big on your back. Whatever you do, ditch the green flipflops..[​IMG]

    No, not from the current trip.
    Jacket is NSM in Breanish tweed, shirt local bespoke in S.I.C. Tess voile, tie Panta shantung [​IMG] , pants Ambrosi in VBC twill and shoes by C&J cordovan loafers (both not pictured).

    Now there is irony for you. You were the one who suggested I start buttoning the DBs this way. [​IMG] Mike
    - I think it is with this suit in particular or it could be the camera angle - which i will be expanding on below
    G - is the balance on the coat off a bit. it almost feels like it is dropping off you, especially if you follow the lines in the windowpane around the middle.
    - It could be the angle as well as depth of field as I too was wondering what was wrong. See below as an example if I may. - The height of the camera has remained the same just the depth changes. - Same cut as yesterday, only difference is cloth & number of buttons
    Same depth as yesterday (approx 1m), only cropped for square format & IMO too close for 35mm as you can see the centre has a slight fish-eye effect [​IMG] Approx 2m, only cropped for square format & IMO the SWEET SPOT [​IMG] Approx 3.5m & cropped in, also good as there is minimal distortion (disregard the noise for now as the cloud was over-cast & not moving so I have lifted the exposure) [​IMG]
    - does this help?
    ..
    - great photography, nice Leica look PS & style, though very ballsy for corporate or law (or are you in creative)
    Following that fit is not easy, so here's today's 'fit'
    - you are too hard on yourself - I like your fit as it is wearable & real

    ^ 2m is the sweet spot for sure.
    Ive always been abject to ties the same lightness as a shirt. Im not sold 100% but I think it works here.
    I love the PS. Kiton?

    - I had a cocktail to go to after work hence the tie with no pattern choice
    - PS is one of my Herringbone faithful
