    Stitchy, the shirt, tie, pants and shoes are all great. And the color and texture of the SC is quite nice. But the fit leaves A LOT to be desired. There seem to be a lot of folds and excess fabric all around. You should bring it to a tailor and have him give it the once over. I'm sure minor alterations would improve the fit a ton. The tapered, fitted appearance of the trousers only accentuates a boxier, baggier fit, and ruins any congruity within the fit.

    Also I think you could use a bit of break in your left leg, but the perceived difference in length might just be your posture.

    mimo - tie is panta, thanks.

    clag - the collar is gigantic, and i love it.

    SB - i roll my shirt sleeves. OCD with my watch. i end up fidgeting with my cuffs all day, so i have given in to always rolling. i know it would look better with cuff showing, but i must persevere the minimal amount of sanity i have left.

    BB - thanks for the critique. the cuff is hung up on a shoe lace, making it appear to sit higher than it does. no idea why the SC looks like that, there are times i posted it and it looks tight. it is far from boxy. imo, there is literally nothing about that pic that represents what i actually look like. which is why i hate posting full lengths. meh, who knows, probably a little of both. thanks again, i dont mean to sound dismissive. should we ever meet, you will see what i really look like.

    thanks, sheepy! but, i like the collar, which incidentally looks great when it has some roll going, not flat like in the pic. and again, no idea why the jacket looks like a tent in the pic. ah well. i tried.

    CURSE YOU QUADCAMMER lol

    Decided to wear my first SF affiliate purchase. HY pointed knit tie. And I'm including a fit pic with query (details to come in the spoiler).
    [​IMG]



    The lapel seems a bit wonky. The jacket was given to me by my dad; it didn't fit him. I say this because I wouldn't have purchased the jacket otherwise because of the lapel. I haven't had it pressed yet, so maybe a pressing will fix it. But is there any way to get the buttonhole side lapel to extend further down? Is it even an issue or is that deliberate?

    Also, I don't like showing shirt cuff.

    This looks great. Particularly like the suit and pocket square.
