    Thanks for the tips Spoo. The loafers are actually navy but I get your point. I check some of the other threads for tips/hints/fit advice but rarely post in them. One of my favorites is the "appreciation of gray' thread and "shoe porn".

    The stance comes naturally, I grew up in the Bronx and have lived in Brooklyn for 12 years now...LOL

    As for cuffs, most of my pants are in fact cuffed. Especially those with narrow openings. in fact I was debating between these pants and another pair of Mabitex which are cuffed.

    As I post more, you'll see a bit more variety in pretty much everything.

    Notes for the coming week, no striped ties, cuffed pants, stepped up shoe game....got it! :)

    ps the Kendrick Lamar reference boosted my estimation of you by about 1000x:nodding:

    Awesome Baldness Rules!!!!!!:slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer:

    Kai, I think this would benefit from more substantial lapels and a bit more wrap on the DB.

    Ebony man, thanks big homey! Im digging the versatility of your looks too!
    Why thank you spoo! That is worth 10 thumbs up in my estimation. I silently learned from all you guys following the thread for over a year before I even posted a thing and I still do. I feel I was already 60% there in terms of honing in on my fit before this forum. Then I stumbled on you guys from GQ from the referral of the style guy and it was like I struck gold..information every where I looked.. answering questions that S.A's at stores like Nordstroms, Saks and Bloomies could not answer for me..it was an eye opener..then finding an awesome tailor that I have worked with over the last 3 years.. so I am not taking the prop's.. Im giving it back to you and all of you old head's on here that helped a gent out..

    P.S-Kendrick is dope.. but I am looking forward to my man Joey Badass.. he reminds me of what it used to be like.. but Kendrick, intentionally or not, started a movement. Hopefully for the better..

    Gracias. That shirt was white though; I suspect something is funny about my camera or the lighting.

    The result of that is flattening the roll again.

    Really, the neck is what decides where the lapel will roll. If dry cleaners have pressed your lapels flat, maybe you can press the crease they have created out, but don't press it again all the way, just a little below the neck then let the lapel roll naturally. Although by that time, the tension and curve created by stitching (padding) the canvas to the outer shell might have been destroyed anyways.
