    Got caught in a downpour on the walk to work, luckily in front of a cab company:

    ...

    Diggin it!

    ...

    +1.000!

    ...

    That´s the problem with ill-fitting suits. If it doesn´t fit in the shoulders, you can´t win the game with neat shoes.

    ...

    I dig that.

    ...

    Although i do like the simple colourwork, the texture of that tie kills it for me. It just seems to me a nice silk tie (e.g. paisley) would have fitted better...just my 2cents.

    Still feeling Irish...

    I'm wearing: all from - H&M Trench coat, white jeans, denim shirt, tried tshirt and plaid scarf.... and ramalhoni shoes - the Havelocks

    Funny. I'm wearing my Havelocks today as well. They're frickin' awesome.

    Edit: That shrunk horribly. The pants are actually brown. Here's a better pic of the pattern

    First wearing of the jacket. I feel like it could be slimmer along the sides and waist.

    I tend to agree with Working Stiff with regard to the length of the jacket below (not to the "awfully" extent).

    This jacket looks awfully short for what is otherwise such a conservative outfit. Maybe with slimmer pants it would look OK, but here it looks off.

    Orge's response:

    While it may appear short, it measures exactly right on me. The ideal length is half the distance from the collar to the floor, and that's what this is.

    Is this a "rule" of some sort that I've never heard. And, if so, because of varying torso length/leg length ratios between people, that would negate the "just cover your seat" rule in many cases.


    On the flip side, I agree with sugarbutch with regard to the fit of the suit below (including the jacket). Does this measure the same as the jacket you mentioned is the "ideal length"? It could be the camera angle/pose, but it appears a bit longer.

    Orge, IMO you should make a template from these trousers and get every pair you've got altered to mimic them. Maybe the jacket, too. You look about 15 lbs. lighter and 4 inches taller.

    The "rule" is something I've read several places, and it was the method I was trained to use when fitting for MTM suits at Brooks Brothers. Flusser says:
    Not having a bespoke tailor, I use the latter method as a general guide. For me, it says 31" is the ideal BOC length, and I will deviate at least half an inch to either side of that measurement, depending on the coat. Regarding the two suits pictured above, the second is 1/4" longer than the first. I suspect the difference in appearance is due more to the second suit's overall slimmer silhouette than to any actual difference in length.

    Useful info. Thanks for posting.

    Apparently night shots are not something my camera is very good at.

    Couldn't quite put my finger on yesterday's fit but it did make you look quite a bit slimmer. My arrangement of side by side might help me , and others, see why. Coat length helps... button position...slimmer trousers... sometimes it is just the picture, i.e. head included (?). Regardless, use that suit for important times or to talk to tailor about creating other fits. Nice suit my man! [​IMG]

    Like the fit but I would have chosen a different tie myself as it blends into the jacket, just my opinion though.
