    I thought it was a suit for a second. Would have been great. :)

    Thanks. You guys are definitely right. I'll work on the tie immediately!

    What kind of break would you say my suit pants exemplify?

    i quite like it. in the first pic contrast seems to be sufficient to me. in the second two pics, not quite so much. but i think the top one was a better representation.

    however, in the top pic, the collar seems to be pulling away from your neck, maybe just the way you are standing?

    I agree, I thought it was a suit at first.

    Orge, most of your fits are spot on, though not modern certainly classic. Asides from the color palette which I actually like, I think this is the jacket that fits you best.

    By the way it would look great with jeans and loafers... :hide:

    The shirt is Robert Talbott MTM in a Royal Oxford cloth, thats about all the can tell you. The hand is a lot smoother than your average Brooks Brothers oxford cloth.

    I like it and I think the colours work great together. I would however let out the waist of this jacket, it looks tight and creates a slight hourglass shape.

    I have to say, I don't agree on the jacket fit. I think it looks good as is. Very nice look.

    I agree with you and not clapeyron. There seems to be a bit more waist suppression going on, which flatters much more than usual. This shape is what classic British tailoring aims for. And I also think the restricted palette plays quite well.

    Yeah the waist is completely fine. It only looks accentuated due to the chest drape/room, but that is a very nice fit.

    Hey if it's good enough for Patrick Grant .. although he got a bit of stick on FNB for the same reason i.e. jacket pinch

    Like it a lot Orgetrix. Question is, if not grey, what? Navy would be odd, Anything in a brown would make u look arboreal. Fawn?
