    Same here. I'd rather have it made to measure at Paul Stuart in NYC.
    Their Canadian / Natural Shoulder has always worked for me personally.
    Custom does offer greater detail, but who has time for all the fittings ?

    At 6'9" I can see your challenges, and they are greater than mine.
    Looking put-together is an expensive and time consuming thing to do, for tall and big men.

    FWIW - In the past I have found excellent looking ties, extra long by Robert Talbott.

    Mondays should always be 'serious dressing' and you nailed it well imo.
    Summer Navy ( true navy) suits with white buttons,is pretty snazzy! ,,,, and allows you to use the jacket
    in additional ways, with other trousers. (White especially ).

    Mica: I'm guessing that one of your series of replies above is about my suit; thank you! And yes, I do use it more frequently as a summer blazer rather than as a full suit.

    A couple of suggestions:
    - please use the Quote function to make it clear who you're replying to. Otherwise it's a total guessing game as to what on earth you're referring to in any given post.
    - the Multi quote feature will make your life - and our reading - much easier when you want to reply to a series of posts in one go. If you do use it, it's nice to then spoilercode any images, again to help readability by compressing the thread.

    Welcome to the board.

    Ok thanks for the tip. Also, you can formalize a navy blazer always with a simple white square, picking up the white buttons.
    The devil is in the details.

    I disclaim any knowledge of DerekS's ability to osculate well, nor have I ever had the privilege to spoon with him - don't blame me for this . . .

    Looking good, with two exceptions - I don't feel the PS and I also think it would look better if you didn't stick the flaps into the pockets. Hiding the flaps to get fake jetted pockets only works if you don't have a ticket pocket on the jacket.....

    You are wearing your clothes, and "your clothes aren't wearing you " as so many wind up doing.
    This is the way that Ralph Lauren would dress, and that will tell you everything.
    Perfection via simplicity is always within reach with Classic dressing.

    Yeah, that would work! I only have one yellow tie, and I do think yellow works best with this suit, seen as the stripes are yellow too. A nicely patterned yellow tie is hard to find though.

    Be happy it hasn't been too hot in your neck of the woods...

    That looks great though, well done.
