    macaroni has always posted great stuff that seems to go largely unnoticed.
    pretty inaccurate statement.
    Macaroni is one of my favorite posters. It also helps that his photos are very nice. No decent full length shot for me today. Shooz are blck suede. [​IMG]
    this is nice N. i think i have the same tie ... lol.

    nice Banis, but with your physique, i think a slightly larger leg opening on the pants would be better.

    I don't understand suits without socks. Maybe some super high fashion/too tight/short pants suit might be different without socks, but not a serious suit. I don't get how o/0, being a government lawyer, goes sockless on a regular basis.


    He wears a very full cut pant leg. I doubt anybody even sees the lack of socks. Probably has a pair stuffed in his drawer for when he really needs them.

    Lufty- I think you need at least a less-stingy brim and maybe a shorter crown. Those proportions aren't the best on you and make the hat/head look disproportionately large.
    I think it's at least a 3" brim - I don't recall Brooks having one with a larger brim. I am not aware, do they get much larger than that? And, for the record, I have a stupid big head compared to my gangly body and pencil neck (14.5"). Like, 7 3/8. Seriously big.

    Nice. I really like your odd coats.
    Is that a custom made? 7.5 oz? Do you even feel the jacket?[​IMG]
    Yes - very satisfied. It gets very hot and humid around me so I wanted as lightweight as possible.
    +1 and this is great, ndw. I'm a fan of striped ties worn this way (plain suit, solid shirt). Excellent pocket square choice. That suit fabric is beautiful. Durable enough for pants? Looking good, too, banis. Nice looking giacca.
    Thx, P. The fabric is probably not durable enough for the pants to overwear them,but I wanted a summer blazer and decided to get matching pants - I also figured the linen and silk would strengthen it slightly. First handful of wearings have been nice.
    ndw, I would have liked a darker tie with that suit/shirt combo, particularly given the black suede, which unlike most on the forum, I am quite a fan of.
    I [​IMG] black suede. WHat color pairings would you recommend with lighter pastel color ties like this? I feel like blue is too matchy and pink would be too dandyish (for me at least). I also have a few off white summer ties that I can never match up.
    this is nice N. i think i have the same tie ... lol.

    Dear mr Spoo,

    That tie knot is perfect. [​IMG]

    Yours sincerely,


    Thanks... it was pretty damn good [​IMG]

    First miss of the week for you. Don't like the proportions (lapels bowing, in combination with shape, buttoning point and size of pocket flaps makes it all look a bit weird). Could just be photo angle, of course...

    I agree the fit of the suit was off. Im now 10 pounds down from 1 month ago, so all of my stuff is fitting unusually. The weight seems to have fallen off mostly my waist and hips, so pants are sitting low, and my waist suppression is not so prominent. I also thought I should have the pants tapered, they feel a little wide compared to my most recent Pantas (which I adore).

    And yes, the angle of the pic was a little low.

    For comparison, same suit today (at 162 lbs)
    [​IMG]

    And at 175lbs

    I think a black/white or blue/white houndstooth or glen plaid would have worked really well. maybe even a simple black grenadine.

    Update: Got home after court victory, got changed into loungewear, then realized that I had a client meeting in 40 minutes. Wasn't going to put the sweaty suit back on, so this was the result.

    dude screw your health. put the weight back on to get the waist suppresion you so desire. way more important. [​IMG]

    ^ Great look, Greg! Is the popped collar on the coat intentional? BTW, loving the shaved head. You look badass, no homo.....

    With the soft tailored jacket, loud colors and shorn scalp you look like the more tasteful version of Luca.
