    Nothing wrong with HB when it fits like that! I do think you'd benefit from some shoes with a more elegant last though (not as pointy).

    Thanks, Pliny! It really is a fun jacket. The leather elbow patches and cuffs, the pockets, and the belt back really give it this rustic look. Almost makes me feel like a lord who's going for a stroll on his estate.
    This suit fits you very well, so don't worry about the fact it's Hugo Boss. One thing I'd pay attention to in future purchases is slightly wider lapels. That suitsupply washington, for example, looks much better on you.

    Great example of why navy and grey does not have to be a boring "uniform" :slayer:
    I can only echo HC's advice that a slightly rounder shoe last would probably serve you well
    About ten years ago I lived not too far away from you neck of the woods (Charlottesville) and I was miserable every day for about five months every year when temps were topping 80 (or above). My northern-Scandinavian genes are not cut out for those kind of temperatures. More autumn-appropriate clothing today :nodding: [​IMG] Close up:

    It's made by Fallan and Harvey (I got it from Spoo a while back for next to nothing). You are right, I do indeed have a low right shoulder, but it is mostly not so visible as in this picture through (perhaps a 1.5-2 cm difference between right and left shoulders)

    That tie somehow manages to make the jacket look almost conservative.

    You are making a case for why SF dislikes yellow ties.
    that tie is too bright

    Except that it appears he is wearing it in ... Vegas? If so, rock out for a night out. But don't wear it to the conference the next day.



    Today. The little squares on the tie have little flecks of blue, so I passed on the pure white PS for the tipped version. I know it is not everyone's cup o' tea.

    +1, words fail me :eek: - the jacket could probably work in a substantially more sombre setting


    This is probably my most well-fitting jacket, which is highly ironic given how much time (and money) I have spent on MTM :blush:
