    Im so proud.. [​IMG]
    - thanks Casper
    You give good windowpane, pappy.
    - at 1st read I thought you said wood..
    Very good. Would look even better wtihout the bracelets, but that's just me.
    - correct, you are not alone
    Casual Friday...]
    - have you thought about slimming the sleeves
    A little scared by great posters...[​IMG]
    - I'd swap out the buttons for less gilt & you are on a good start
    Weather couldn't decide whether to rain or shine all day long...
    - is that the infamous Anne Hathaway coat?
    Bow tie Friday!
    I just got a job where business dress is the code, this is the first few days...the fit off because everything is thrifted and now I have free alterations so I'll be taking advantage of that.
    - IMO you need to start on a cleaner pallet than what you have been collecting whilst lurking all these years.
    - new job is a good opp to start with basics

    While I like the 'idea' of this bow, it's too damned pale & never I really use it. But I thought I'd give it a whirl for a morning stroll!
    Divine retribution...it started to rain!

    Thanks for yesterdays comments, I agree the bow should have been wider!

    This is how I would have worn that jacket before joining the forum. Today I would have chosen lighter pants. Another SF effect: your collar buttons inevitably look like you're DTOing PG. Not a bad example to imitate, however.
    Maybe, it's time for me to get light blue or lavender pants. I googled to find what DTO means, haha. Good to hear that it's not bad. [​IMG]

    Do those buttons up! [​IMG] Apart from that, great get-up! Very nice jacket!
    OK. I will button up collars. [​IMG] I usually button up collars in the morning and unbutton them in the afternoon, which I think gives a good shape of collars.

    Another good post from you. The tie looks familiar, is it BB? I think you've got a great thing going here and I'm looking forward to you next post, as your fits are continously spot on (especially as I guess you mostly wear OTR jackets/suits?). This one is actually your best so far IMHO.
    [​IMG]

    The tie is a kind of BB replica with a different stripe direction. [​IMG] Yes, most of my jackets/suits are OTR(or RTW). I don't alter anything but sleeves and pants length. Anyway, thanks a lot, I like to see your fits as well, very solid!

    - I'd swap out the buttons for less gilt & you are on a good start
    I have never thought of changing buttons. um...Now that you say that, buttons look weird to me. [​IMG] Many thanks for a good comment!

    Please, ignore the mirror marks (/blurry second image); it's tooth-paste, I swear! I have yet to find a good place to take fit picks in my house! Also, I'm wearing the loafers pictured (no socks). (I don't know why I didn't take a picture of them...) The lapels are weedy, I know, but this is a ~£60, linen jacket, from Uniqlo (and the only linen jacket I have!), so go figure! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I like, but why is your belt buckle over there? [​IMG] (I know it doesn't really matter!) Also, one more turn-up, on the sleeves, would make it look less scruffy (matched with your beard). Not trying to say you look scruffy! [​IMG]

    ^ Nice! Not exactly sure about the bow tie (the pattern). TV fold would look nice with that!

    ^ You need a pair of collar stays, sir. And please tie your tie so that the tip of the blade reaches the center of your belt buckle.

    [​IMG]
    ^ The DB jacket is a very good look on you. But this one is not a good match with those slacks.

    [​IMG]
    ^ It bears repeating: Collar stays. On side note, we prefer public restrooms as our backdrops here, not janitors' closets. That said, yours is a very nice one. Carry on.

    first post here so here goes
    Add a pocket square and visible shirt cuffs and you're good to go, Fred.

    Oh dear god. That's awesome. Is there anything you can't logo? [​IMG]

    +1; maybe some lighter (electric blue) chinos? I'm intrigued as to whether I am crazy or not!

    OK, this is serves as a good reference for something I've been wondering: Are the sleeves on Fred's jacket the right length (i.e., he needs a shirt with longer sleeves), or should the jacket sleeves be shortened? I assume the latter, but iDunno.

    I think if his shirt fit correctly, the sleeves would show a little, but the suit sleeves need to be shortened a cm to an inch (~). Oh, wait, you have me on block! Ahahah! *pfft!
