    - I'm going to have to against the group circle jerk on this. There is something not right about the balance & proportion of the jacket & pants. Not sure whether it is the angle as it's certainly not from your camera & lens set up.
    - The button spacing could be the issue. But until we see a robot pose - jury is out.
    - I have noticed that your pants are lack shape? Maybe to full or straight? May I suggest with your next commission to go for a higher rise to make your legs look longer.
    - I do like the colour combination


    Thanks for this. I think you're right that the fit of the suit is off a bit. There are a few reasons and some you already mentioned.

    -Button stance is a bit off at times due to the original design based on buttoning the bottom button. I changed it after realizing that was a mistake. Still need to add an inner button so that it doesn't pull like it does. That'd fix a lot of the button stance problem.

    -Pants were because I wanted something very loose and comfortable. I think you're right that I should have had a higher rise. The jacket itself might have been better off slightly shorter with how tightly it fits on top.

    -Lastly, I made it last year and I'm the dumb guy that gained shoulder mass and worked on my lats the whole time. I think ALL of my suits fit slightly off these days.

    Here's the robot pose:

    You never fail to disappoint. Thanks again.

    Now that is a sign of summertime. The shirt and tie combo with the lt. tan seersucker is rather splashy, and would really wake a person up, but you pull it off well. 9.5 points -- .5 deducted for a plain withe PS, bright and fluffy to offset the shirt & tie, would complete the eye opener.

    Critique/comments are always welcome.

    What are the shoes? They look great.

    One day, you're going to drop your laptop carrying it like that. [​IMG]

    Another consistent and good look.

    Colours are great, especially the tie.

    Jacket collar seems a bit loose around your neck in some of those pics?

    I don't know about business, but it would be smashing on a summer Sunday.

    McFly??? Is that you???



    The resemblance to Crispin Glover was also mentioned by Holdfast a little while back in an earlier post......the look is entirely unintentional though.

    He is a bit of an oddball when interviewed, and although I'm not a huge fan of his earlier stuff (I never actually saw Back to the Future part I or II), his performance in Bartleby killed me....you really gotta see it.



    Looks pretty cool. I think I've said it before, but I dig the somewhat eccentric hairstyle too.



    Thanks...the hair was actually a bit wilder before, but I've toned it down since. It's obviously a greasy mess, but I'm none the less flattered that you dig it.........[​IMG]

    That combo is screaming out for a white button down shirt. And I think cuff links are too formal for seersucker. Looks like a fun suit to wear, enjoy.

    Lookin' good. This is more CBD than the CBD thread today.

    You are quite welcome.

    If I can bring disappointment to yet others, then it will all have been worth it.


    - B


    Well you did to others; I was quite happy with things but I'd never admit that.
