    Yeah, there's certainly a flare to that one, something accentuated perhaps a bit too much by the narrow waist and high positioning of the lowest button. It's not really swinging open though: the plaid remains vertically/horizontally aligned, so I have to believe that it is intended to fit that way, at least more or less. I like the silhouette (obviously, or I wouldn't own it!) but then again, I have a range of overcoats and some are narrower in appearance so I can pick & choose depending on what look I want.

    BTW, I agree with stitchy that your most recent pic was easily the nicest you've shown us. I would echo those suggesting leaving the shoulders as they are for now, and just wearing it a few times. They look like they fit fine there, and you may simply need to get used to them. But if they really do still feel too tight after a few wears, fair enough. By the way, the jacket front seems to be a little long for you; not something worth fixing but rather something to watch for in future purchases. Note how the jacket appears to "pivot" around the fastened button such that it spreads outwards below? Now imagine deleting a little material from just below the shoulder seam at the front, and imagine how that would straighten the jacket below the button as a result by lifting the top half inwards. Tough to put into words, but you get the idea, hopefully.

    (As an aside, to work out the the difference between this flaring and that on my overcoat, look at a pattern or weave: the plaid on the overcoat remains vertical, but your herringbones start slanting sideways below the button).

    I'm going to be a grump and say that while it's a beautiful suit and fits you very well indeed, I think a slightly higher buttoning point and a more closed front would flatter your build even more. Then again, I just don't really like very open & very curved fronts on anyone, so my personal prejudices come into play here.




    Anyway, what do I know, I'm wearing a cartoon tie... [​IMG]

    Jeebus, did you dress like that everyday for undergrad? And if you're wearing that to your finals all the time, you're clearly not studying enough!

    Hah! Just kidding. Looking sharp!

    What is the difference?

    I like the style of khakis & chinos. I just really don't like the color in khakis. Chinos come in a variety of colors that I've seen.

    Makes sense re: your jacket.

    And yes, this and the other blazer I have are 42's when I'm realistically a 38... I bought them so I could layer with sweaters. The reason Why I want to take them back to have atleast an inch put back in is because with my bigger sweaters, they're tight when they're just on. Honestly, one of my sweaters fits fine under a jcrew tweed blazer that's a 38. I feel a bit of tightness in the back when I cross my arms, but it feels natural.

    With this and the other blazer (the other is tighter), I feel like robocop!

    Khaki's are essentially chino's in the 'sand' color. The usage of the word is now colloquially ambiguous given that khaki is used to describe this style of pants even in other colors. See 'dockers: alpha khaki' for instance. They're chinos, technically speaking, but that's not how they're described.

    Stitchy just knows better than to post fit pics when he's wearing them.

    incorrect! i have posted fit pics in chinos/khakis, but they are generally reserved for summer, and they are awesome. would you like me to find one for you?
