    They are the color inverse to the tie and basically the same pattern. That looks bad. Too studied. You get it now, bro?

    We may agree to disagree but lapels seem too wide to me because they occupy more than half of his chest and past half way the shoulder line, it seems out of proportion but it still looks good. Maybe a lower notch would create a different visual. Since iammatt is here, why don't we ask him what he thinks of it.

    no worries.

    i should have been more precise. i'm not promoting the full break. i'm all for the correct length in the conservative manner, i've been taught.(see one of your recent contributions to this thread). i was much more concerned about the cuffs and imo the cuff height ndw is spotting is spot on for his built and frame.

    Jacket needs wider lapels and more shoulder padding to help balance out your head.

    Me too. There are some very good points being brought up. By their public nature, our images are open for critique. And critique can be really useful even if it's harsh.

    PG... I know all your P Johnson stuff is cut the same. The windowpane seems to create a different visual effect than the stripes or the plaid. Very true about the fleeting moment the camera captures. Something can look totally great in one shot, and off the next.

    To be honest, I have absolutely no idea on the details of the jacket. It's second hand, and I can't find any labels in it anywhere - neither brand nor materials. All I can tell you is that it's wool, fused, and the buttons have been replaced. Sorry.

    Nice jackets, Dennis Walker and Kevinsp8. I really like your gray (linen?) pants too, Acrid, but they might be even nicer if a little tapered. PG, you look great as always imo. I really want to DTO the gray/brown sport coat w/ blue checks. Is it a linen blend?
    You're right that they match the shoes and pants in color, but he's right about them matching in terms of sharing a pattern. Imho, a common mistake on SF is to have things match too much in size. I'll give you an example. On the first page of pocketsquareguy's pocket square thread, Spoo posted a bunch of great looks. But one that got a large amount of compliments was this one: [​IMG] In a lot of ways, it's really beautiful. Each piece is excellent. But all together, it was my least favorite of the looks in that post, because the size of the stripes were virtually the same and thus too matchy imo in the shirt, suit, and pocket square edge. That said, as an exercise in matching patterns, it's impressive. Btw, JapanAlex, the little green thumb's up buttons are to indicate you like a post, not to post snide commentary (except perhaps in DT).

    The lapels in question area great. Would not change a bit.

    I was wondering if the fact he was wearing wool was a form of sartorial cannibalism?

    Unbearably hot. I was outside for 15min prior to taking this shot and sweat right through my shirt and suit.

    I've thought about taking in the waist and slimming the sleeves on this coat slightly because I think it would improve the overall fit , but since it is strictly a hot weather suit I have left it looser fitting to allow for more circulation. Truly a form over function question.
