    does look better in natural light in more natural stance than the robot pose :) I still say you should try a new updated suit with less structure, LBM 1911 is a nice Italian brand, has been around for a while/ good rep, and is softer than most kitons and isaias without looking boxy or dated. the allen Edmonds shoes are clunky to me, bro! those are thick soles on some heavily brogued wingtips; liked the suede shoe with what appears to be a nicer sole in your new pix. just my unsolicited two cents, of course. will be interested to see your kiton suit!

    I think your suits look great.

    Ditto on the shoes.

    Great fit, and flattering on your body shape.

    I like your current styles better than those that Foxx is recommending.

    Foxx and Kai please spolier pictures. This is like the 4th time I've seen DC's outfit. And I agree with you Kai. DC has a style and it works for him. I'm still not sure what the whole one leg up stance is all about though.

    Greetings all, I do acknowledge some inputs on my previous post. Please forgive me as I'm still struggling with angle of the camera self snaps. Here's my look for Friday. Enjoy your weekend.

    UC, that's a perfect fall outfit, which suggests that I should be jealous of your weather right now.

    Engi, I wish you'd gone for different shoes. A lighter color (deep tan) and more casual style (full brogue or loafer) might do you some good. I'm normally not crazy about chiseled lasts, but I think a slightly sharper edge there could look really good. I feel like the shoes, while elegant, are conservative enough to appear a little staid compared to the rest of your rig. You could also go the other way -- longwing gunboats might be cool with a rig like this.

    Don Cologne, I happen to like the shoes, and though I agree that you might be well-suited aesthetically by a less built-up shoulder, if you prefer/are more comfortable in this kind of cut, then you're better off with it. You shoulders might also be square enough that they'll have a relatively constructed shape even with less padding/stiffness.

    I'm pro monochromatic, but this is off to me. There are four different shades of brown here. They don't blend together well. Also, those blue socks are out of left field given other colors are all brown. I think this would be much better with a dark brown shoe and sock.

    Stichy I love those Arran's and those colors work together perfectly

    The beautiful orange tie is often unappreciated
