    Clapeyron, that's a cool, breezy fit. Not sure I'd wear those shoes with it but it looks good on you.

    DC, did you have those buttons relocated rather than having the jacket altered? Something seems amiss with the button placement and lack of overlap on that db.

    Yes I changed the position for 4 cm. There was not much reserve on the side stitches.

    Good luck. Nice suit. That tie is all kinds of weird to me. It looks like wavy black corduroy. I think a twill, knit or grenadine would have been better. I hope you button your shirt cuff before the interview.

    hmm...i never considered a solid black cashmere/silk to be weird...but youre wearing yellow shorts with a sportcoat so i think we just have different tastes. ;)

    out of curiosity...what would make a twill or grenadine better?

    and no. i dont think ive buttoned my cuff buttons in over a decade.

    Those are all solid looks AAS weren't it for the trousers stopping half way through.

    Unless of course the New York in your signature refers to the state and you are not going to work in New York City but rather attend a wedding in scenic Rhinebeck.


    Sweet Luxire Shirt, though. From what I've seen I'd wager, given the horizontal stripes, that this the most conservative shirt in your wardrobe.

    Depending on the interviewer, that could work.

    Good luck!!

    Fit & fabric are very excellent, as is the overall outfit... but the button placement on the jacket would bug the proverbial out of me. The mid & bottom tiers seem way too narrow for your frame.

    The red iteration harmonises together much better IMO.

    I agree with AAS on the tie Derek.

    It looks like it's made from the very same upholstery fabric as my triclinium on my most recent Eyes Wide Shut Commemorative Unneccessoirée.

    thats funny....its one of my favorite ties...maybe its more subtle IRL because i hardly notice it. I liked the texture for something outside of a grenadine or knit .... c'est la vie.

    Portfolio: 40 year old Goldpfeil Caracciola (the Rudolf Caracciola (!)) it belonged to either my girlfriends grandfather or grandmother, we weren't sure. It fits my 15" Samsung X4C perfectly.

    I wish the suit would be from Oxxford clothes and I had the + 5 cm reserve on both side stitches. So only thing I can do is to loose some weight and make the old button placement.

    @ Don Cologne have you thought about adding a third row of buttons, effectively creating a triple breasted suit? you could become a trendsetter.

    Kidding aside, I assume you've also moved the upper buttons. I'd either suggest to remove them entirely, turning the jacket in a 4x1 constellation, or properly redo them without shanking the buttons.

    As is, the jacket seems very off due to the disproportionate overlap.

    Indeed a fine persiflage! you did a splendid job of channeling dear ed. Wouldve been more accurate if you were wearing a humbler while typing though.
