    Been wearing this linen (Uniqlo) blazer a lot recently (the only one I have), because it's so warm! I bought these chinos from Uniqlo, too, but they were vanity sized, so needed to get them fixed at the waist! The leg is a little flaired/baggy, so I can't wait to replace them with a better brand (Dockers). (Shirt sleeves are a little too short, too, I know!) [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Wrinkles and rumples... - Yes, it needs a press, but I also just lost 9 lbs. so things are sitting a bit funny now - happy to finally say these awesome shoes are by SF's own DC Lewis. This is the "Clayton". [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Moar shooz:

    I like the wrinkles, Spoo. It's cotton, right?

    Thanks, yeah. It's a very thin Dormueil cotton with a lot of memory. Even freshly pressed it looks a mess [​IMG] but I though it was nice with the slubby tie.

    Ok, here is what I am seeing:

    The Sleeves are too long, the jacket is way too short, the lapels are too small, the pants are too long and not nearly fitted enough for the jacket. Basically, it needs serious help.

    Sorry,

    Mike

    I wasn't massively fond of the colour of this suit last time, but I think this lighting flatters it much more. I wouldn't wear it against my skin colour, but as a colour in itself, I can see why you chose it now. Nice one.

    PS. the Versace tie you commented on will NOT be burned! [​IMG]

    ...

    Moving in the right direction incrementally. Keep going.

    Cool suit. Liking hte shoes and the overall look too. If its suits all this week, will be be odd jackets all next week, and then comparing scores? [​IMG]







    Sunny and fairly warm day, so out comes a bit of linen again:

    Nice, but why you no like cuffs?

    If you're going for classic style, +1 on Mike's critique (and I'd add some concern about the sheen of the material for anything other than a nighttime look). If you're going for a fashiony look, then you can ignore the bits about the lapel width and jacket length.

    Thanks for the compliments, everybody, on yesterday.

    Cooler temps in the midwest. It's so wonderful. Soft, unstructured blazer day.
