    Hand-polished shoes are really something. I've almost completely stopped doing it with my arse now.

    (Great fit btw, and where are the shoes from? I like them.)

    I started to sweat for you, until I saw the suit was a Summer-weight. I think the fit calls for a full-body shot.

    Thanks Mimo. Yes, hand polishing shoes is time consuming, though I find it therapeutic at times -- when I'm trying to do smth mindless.

    Tbh -- if you're in an air-conditioned area all day, or even stroll briefly outside in the heat, one can get by relatively comfortably in a summer weight suit paired with lightweight voile shirting which was what I was wearing.

    These below are some fit pictures I have. The trousers were already spot on so I didn't bother to try them. Hope they help:

    I've heard of ways to get those pictures from your camera directly into a computer, so you don't have to take pics of the screen pics of your camera. Really convenient.

    Unfortunately, the camera isn't mine, but I hear you.

    I peeped your post in the SS thread, and I definitely prefer the length on the suit jacket. Did yours come with functional buttonholes on the sleeves? I really don't understand this trend in RTW...

    Well, I think your usual stuff is roomy, but not "too big", which is something I prefer myself - so I'm kinda biased. I think shortness of the jacket is what is contributing most to my thoughts of it being a bit small. Short jackets always look like you borrowed someone else's to me. Yours doesn't really look overly tight, and the lapels lay flat, so it might just be that it's a leaner cut than I've been accustoming myself to.

    ^^ Everything he said. Sr Diaz speak truth.

    I think there's a trend of too-small clothing, even within the hallowed confines of this thread now and then (naming no names). HF is an exception, so seeing a shorter, closer-fitting jacket does look a bit unusual. Half an inch longer and it would barely register, though.

    This is from Saturday. A few of my favorite things. Black watch tie and belt (both cotton). Fun shirt. Seeruscker pocket square. Argyll and Sutherland Highlander strap. Jeans (pleats hiding behind the jacket). Bit loafers. No socks.

    AS, that fun shirt with a contrast collar pegs the nope meter. But you clearly enjoy it, so that eases the pain somewhat.

    I figure if I don't peg the nope meter at least once, then I'm not doing it right. It's in my top 10 favorite shirts. I didn't even know there was a nope meter. Learn something new everyday.
