    I'm selling this suede Harrington style Loro Piana jacket, as it's a bit big for me, so wore it for the last time today. Just about works over a big chunky jumper like this one, but really, it would fit a 38 (or even a slim 40) much better than it does me. I love how soft the suede is though, so have resisted selling it for ages, but the time has come. [​IMG]

    That jacket has some serious collar gap. Either ask a tailor to take in your collar or accept that that jacket isn't going to work for you. I'm not a big fan of the bright red tie with jeans either. If you're going to wear a tie with jeans a knit one would work much better imho.

    Bizarre, I've never noticed that in the mirror. I'll take a look later and see why it was doing that. Tie was actually more maroon than bright red. Sigh... color saturation.

    Had this image taken by a Rake photographer some weeks ago when I ran into him while strolling over LFW with someone from my uni. [​IMG]

    Just tried the jacket on right now and it's fine. I think I was moving my shoulders when that timer went off on the camera.

    Ideally, a jacket should always hug your collar, even when you move your shoulders. Anyway, I'm glad the collar gap isn't as serious as it appeared in the pictures!

    By the way, I have returned from the Field Tailors and have picked up my pants. Will was very gracious and did the work on pants in less than a week even though he had four weeks of back up work. He also showed me how to do the pinch test on a jacket in order to figure out whether it is fully canvassed or not. He is awesome. I have asked him convince the mrs that we should do bespoke. We shall see. Field Tailoring is superb. I should say Will. And he even ironed my pants on the spot while chit chatting and talked about suits and stuff.

    I see you went with the Chelsea boots. Are they new? Rubber soled? How did they work out for you?

    @ Cravat Noir - I'm usually not such a big fan of polo coats but that's one of the best ones I've seen in a 'real world' setting. Looks like it fits perfectly too.

    This isn't directed at anyone in particular, but is anyone else tired of seeing people justifying their pics whenever they get criticism. This has to be my biggest peeve on this forum, and nearly EVERYONE does it, forum greats included.

    IRL this tie isn't that saturated.
    IRL the shirt texture works with the jacket you just can't see it
    Trust me my pants fit perfectly, I was just moving/stretching/breathing so they just look tight.

    I'm just sick and tired of seeing all this justification. If you are gonna post fit pics then take your lumps and stop trying to let every one know you really do know the rules/fit etc and it simply looks like you don't. If someone points out something that is dead wrong, what's wrong with letting it lie? Maybe your cuff was caught up on your shoe, who cares, you know the length is right and make sure your cuff isn't caught up next time . . .

    The best dressers on here let there pics do the talking more often than not. Maybe I'm being over the top, but this gets to me so bad.

    End rant back to regularly scheduled program
