    JapanAlex, you don't need to apologize to me. Spoo, you need to apologize to everybody for that tie.

    I like that coat and the colors are nice, Spoo. The shoes go particularly well with the color of the coat and trou. Tie looks all wrong to me, though. Washed out when everything else is a study in contrasts.

    (I won't mention the pattern ... :hide:)

    Would like a wider spread on that collar. Or something. Those long points are distracting.

    Spoo that tie seems to be wrong. But the colour of your jacket is amazing.

    The tie was selected for sentimental reasons as much as its coordination with today's suit - it was a favorite of my late husband's, and I've been trying to figure out how to work it into one of my fits.

    The color of the shirt and tie is a bit deeper than shows in the detail photo, and the texture of the weave of shirt, tie and suit are at variance with their appearance IRL - the weaves are smoother.

    Thank you, G-Dot for the welcome back - it was good to take a hiatus, and it is good to be be back, if on an irregular basis (suit-wearing in a NYC summer is a sometimes thing).

    BTW, add me to the list of worshippers of PhatG's suit today - way awesome.

    I like this combination.
    Jacket is made from flax?

    Very beautiful photo and a combination of wardrobe items. As well as the rest of that frame! :)

    On the issue of Lofer: what do you mean?

    Loafer, I mainly from C&J, Church, Cheaney.

    About what you ask?

    Some interesting looks; welcome. Perhaps slightly larger pics would be helpful too.

    You got a fair bit of stick for that look, but I thought it was pretty good, in a retro-ish sort of way, assuming there was a jacket too, somewhere.

    I really need to visit the V&A again. Nice setting for that pic!

    Kind of you; thank you.

    The best-fitting suit I've seen you post. Much better across the chest and torso than some of the others; no lapel bowing and proportions are pretty good.

    Tie is insane. I'm trying to figure out the best look for it; its not this outfit, but I reckon it must have a role somewhere. Rest of the look is good, and for once I actually like the look of a split-toe shoe (this is a rare thing indeed for me).







    Wasn't sure whether this belongs in this thread or the casual one, so figured I'd ensure maximum pollution by x-posting to both... :p

    I am not trolling. Those pants make you look like a woman. Those pants are probably beyond salvation, but perhaps your best bet (for these pants and for the future), is not to wear your pants so high it gives you a FUPA/makes your penis visible.

    Actually, I don't think his suit has got any of those problems. He wrote earlier in the thread that he is some kind of athlete, so those shoulders and arms are probably pretty close to his natural build. Agree with you on the colours though.

    Thank you, that's right.

    The line of the shoulders and arms costume repeated anatomical lines.

    I have a thin neck, but very well developed trapezius muscle, which has a polygonal shape.

    All these effects of training in weightlifting and powerlifting.

    You know, my whole thing is that I never wear a necktie, and this threak does nothing but reinforce my position on that. Repeatedly.

    The proportions of jackets from Paul Stuart are different than those of my usual source (BB) - somewhat shorter, which may have some salutary effect on my appearance (I have a big chest and short-ish legs). The fact that the suit is new means that it also has a better chance to have been bought with my current proportions in mind - I've changed shape significantly over the last several years.

    My employer blocks most photos, so I am most curious to see Spoo's tie for today - reactions are strong, and unusually critical, which piques my interest, certainly.
