    You don't have the proper body size for those skinny lapels. You may not be heavy, but those lapels make you look much larger than I am sure you actually are. It is a very awkward look. As someone that makes clothes for people, I'd highly recommend a 3.25" (at least) to 3.5" lapel for you
    Just measured them, the lapels are 3" (are their widest point). Not sure if they can be widened.

    It's a decent look Phil but the lapel critique is valid. Also I like the colour of your shoes but above the ankle you are very business formal and IMO a laced shoe in the same colour would have worked better.

    Spoo - I always dig that shadow stripe suit on you, and someday, I will steal those Kents from you.

    Unbelievable!

    Encouraged by some good comments, I am being bold to post another WAYWRN.
    It's Saturday, so I wore jeans with a jacket. I did try a pocket square but still it looks weird to me. [​IMG]

    While posting, I found I had worn almost the same style last weekend.

    [​IMG][/SPOILER]


    Great fit, but shows how much better dark jeans look with a jacket.

    Ok Guys, This is my first fit.

    The intention here is plain old boring business presentation look. I want to look polished and professional - but take a background to the presentation.

    Most of my current clients are in the middle east - the climate is VERY hot and often very humid. So this suit is a very lightweight high twist 160 yarn fabric. So thin it's practically transparent. Drapes beautifully - but also shows every little thing.

    Musta made the tailor crazy. [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Suit - Canali OTR
    Shirt - Truzzi
    Tie - Zegna
    Belt - Ferragamo
    Shoes - Bally (They are very dark chocolate.)
    Tailoring - Mario Bosco Atlanta
    (Did I mention my clients are total Euro label whores?????[​IMG] )

    Go crazy on me guys - quite perfection is my goal.
    (God do I need a haircut!)[/SPOILER]


    There is something wrong with that suit. The front-back balance is off (please, correct me if I'm wrong, I'm not a tailor) and that causes the front bottom parts of the jacket to overlap as well as the back of the jacket to hang lower than the front. There's not much that can be done about it without severe alterations and shortening the jacket. I wouldn't keep this suit if I could return it, but if I were stuck with it, I'd probably ask my tailor to re-cut the bottom front panels to at least open up a little more. Also, shorten the trousers. Otherwise, everything looks good!

    If you want more information, find a post I made about my first MTM suit not so long ago. It had the same problem, but a lot more severe.

    Fark it is HAWT in HKG..

    That jacket is marvelous! Your style is what I want to grow up to if I ever have to wear jackets on a regular basis.

    Great fit, great jacket, but the lapels are way too skinny. First thing I noticed about your photo. I see that others think the same.

    This is the most "dressed up" I've been since the school year ended. Thought I should capture it for posterity.

    Perfect pocket square look for a wedding. Festive mixed with a classic background of blue and white.

    You did it!

    I believe that is a Borrelli Sorrento, 70% cashmere, 30% silk.

    Thank you kindly, Spoo.

    Vox's butler?

    His butler does look a lot like Vox too. Perhaps that's a security measure.

    Could someone explain all the love for Mr.voxsartoria's outfit ? It looks like a light lime green sport coat on my monitor [​IMG]. Does it appear some other amazing color on your screens ? Fit is great though.

    I like it because of the colour, it's very sprezz indeed, together with the fit.

    I wouldn't say the jacket is full on lime green - a bit quieter than that.

    But the real deal is the fabulous fit, particularly the beautifully made natural shape of the shoulders on the jacket.

    Add in the perfection of proportion between all the elements (tie, collar, lapel), sunglasses that perfectly fit the face, the sharp haircut, as well as the confidence in his posture.

    When it all comes together like this the look becomes greater than the sum of it's parts.

    (Whether or not you like the color - the REAL deal is the absolute confidence which is excuded by the wearer. Confidence bolstered from his knowledge in the perfection of his ensemble.)

    ^ The buttons are really close to the edge of the sleeve. Personal preference?

    Trust me, you aren't. It's the cheapest DSLR they have.

    I dunno, dude... A contrast-collar french-cuff shirt and fedora, yet the shirt is unbuttoned. That just doesn't look right. Also, what's up with the buttons being right at the end of the suit sleeves? Overall, a rare miss from you in my book.
