    Dude- you've been upping your game - and I like the move into more blues and brighter colors for you.

    Leave the shirt. Lengthen coat sleeves.
    I must respectfully (partially) disagree with Lufty on this one. The shirt appears to be covering part of the palm. I'd shorten the shirt sleeve by .5" and lengthen the jacket sleeve by maybe the same amount. EDIT: Actually, looking again, I'd just shorten the shirt sleeve.
    I think I'll have the shirt cuffs taken in, then see how this shirt looks with the jacket. Maybe another fit pic after that will settle the debate.
    I agree. k it looks good otherwise. Jacket has decent shape. As far as squares, you can't really go wrong with a white tv, but with that combo you could do almost anything, add a splash of color, keep in conservative, just make sure the square has a complimentary similar color, and not a matchy one.
    Thanks for the PS advice, Rob. I have but one PS so far, so I'll have to start building my collection. Maybe I'll pick up a white linen from Kent Wang.

    Love this pic, StanVan. Good stuff lately. As a neophyte in this area, I can't comment on the fit, but I like what I see overall.
    Not a pro, but I'll chime in. That's a beautiful jacket, k-man, and I'd like to know who made it. It's pulling a little too much at the buttoning point, though. You can have that fixed when you take it in to have its sleeves lengthened. The shirt sleeves look fine to me. (The left-hand cuff might be hanging just a little low, but not enough that it bothers me.)
    Right on. Thanks for the advice, TB. (cough cough [​IMG]) It's an Epaulet Caine. Funny, I just had the sleeves shortened about a week ago--looks like I may have to have the tailor hit the undo button. [​IMG]
    BTW, nice tie man [​IMG]
    Thank you, sir. [​IMG] Wish I could tie it as well as you tie yours. Can you direct me to a thread or some other site that shows how to get those perfect FIH knots of yours? - K

    No site - just practice, practice, practice. You need to play around with it a bit. It takes me some time to tie my ties.

    Didn't think of it before, but now that you mention it, I can't get away from it. It's like a song stuck in my head.

    Yup - got a few of those - one my size and was always on the fence about keeping it.
    IIRC they have pretty cool labels :p
