    no effing joke.

    worth noting though, that general leg shape and how your legs and knees are positioned at the time of the pic makes a great deal of difference regarding how trousers will look in a pic. some are more genetically fortunate than others in this regard.

    also, when outside, a small gust of wind (inside or outside the trousers AYO!) can billow/misshape the pants if the wind blows at the time the pic is snapped.

    HC - love it.

    I came to the conclusion that 8.5" is the best leg opening for me. I use to do 8" but realized the pants were going over my shoe

    Fit and pattern mostly, a little too busy. I don't really like any shirt I wear with a sport coat to have more than two colors, including white.

    4-5 inches? Yipes. I'm beginning to think this may be a bigger problem with more of my jackets than I thought. Appreciate the note, aravenel.

    Thanks, CM, but the trousers are forest green. I tried to correct for a warmish cast in the pictures, and I guess I took that down too far.

    To be fair, I don't know how tall you are, so it may be more like 3 inches. Regardless it is unfortunately beyond alterations.

    I forgot the tie photo today. But was a dark brown waffle-y thing on a light blue shirt. Boots need a good brushing.

    AS. My man. Please don't wear that black watch with contrast collar shirt again. Please. That just ain't right.

    the jacket is definitely short but only like 3 inches too short
    the good thing is you have an insane amount of clothing and live in la so you will be fine with purging this one item

    I thought the shirt was the best part! But I am of questionable judgment, and moral character.

    Holy shit. I thought that was vox for sure.

    The tie/SC combo told me otherwise though..

    Kidding. Holy fantastic fit, man. Probably late to the commenting on it. But props on all the fit.

    This is from yesterday, didn't have the time to post it after I got home last night (had a cranky baby to take care of). Anyway, it's a rare full-length outdoor shot, so a little out of the ordinary. I will return to the regular programming later today :D

    Not enough contrast between the brown in the pants and the brown of your jacket (I realize that this is answering a question that you didn't ask). I'm technically wearing brown on brown today as well. I say technically because while Howard Yount lists them as brown, they are really closer to gray.
