    Like the fabric (and the rest of the outfit). I think that with your physique a somewhat wider lapel would be better. Can’t tell from the photo whether the length is good on you or not.

    Just one guy’s opinion.

    Cheers,

    Hard to tell with them pix but definitely agree with @Academic2 with regards to lapel width. Let's go wider...enough to land a 747. I have to because I have a big head [​IMG]

    Too difficult to wear. Let it go. No item should be a struggle to wear well.

    Exactly. I'm not very fond of the outfit this jacket was worn with - it's not versatile by any stretch and it also looks a little too short with lapels that are too narrow as others said.

    It's actually a suit but I find it difficult to wear for my needs. I picked it up otr last summer and really haven't worn it since. Agreed about the lapels, these things need some puberty juice. I appreciate the feedback. :slayer:

    Aha - makes more sense now. Yeah, I own a pretty badass PoW suit but struggle to find reasons/occasions for wearing it.

    It may or may not end up neatly packaged in a box to Spoo with some other things I plan on selling.

    Thanks, that's the wife's great grandmother...one of the first shots in the US after coming over from Spain.


    Thx

    That would be a lot easier to wear as a suit.

    Okay -- Top photo is probably my favorite, so I added it in for kicks. I think you've all seen that on my already.
    Second photo is casual -- are we allowed to post casual outfits on here? Either way. I'm here to learn, pick up awesome tips/advise,
    and up my CM game. Go at it kids:

    @Kylerton I like the bottom one as well, you might get better advise on casual fits over on the other side of the forum, or as @TM79 says in the MC Casual thread...

    On the subject of sunglasses, these are the ones I wear every day:

    Not sure about this tie/suit combo. I might try it again with a blue shirt. The suit is a very light navy which I find difficult to pair with colors, so I usually go with black/grey/silver, and sometimes burgundy.

    @Kylerton : looks like your clothes fit well, which is the most important thing.

    @coldsalmon
    I would suggest "upgrading" your shades. The lenses are huge. I believe the lenses are not supposed to cover your ENTIRE eye brows.

    Did you see my advice for you from a few days ago? Might try that... Not a fan of the shades, TBH.

    @coldsalmon
    I am going to have to agree with this. The glasses look a little outdated to me, and are definitely too large. Personally, I am a fan of Persols.

    Nope, I saw your previous post responding to that fit, but missed the one with the photoshop. Thanks for putting in the effort! I think that I generally look better with blue shirts (as the prevailing SF wisdom suggests), but I want to be able to look good in white shirts as well, since they are more UCBD. Maybe I will try this suit with a blue shirt later in the week. I had decided against a brown grenadine, but that photoshop is making me reconsider...

    @Rudals , the guy at the front desk of my gym called me "The Terminator" the other day for wearing those sunglasses.
