    Summary:

    To dress shirts with double cuffs is recommended to choose a jacket with a slightly enlarged end of the sleeve. This is considered the classic form of sleeves for use with shirts with French (double) cuff.

    Slim sleeves end in many contemporary and fashionable jacket is not very suitable for a double cuff shirts. Such a wide cuff and often sticks out a narrow sleeve fashion jacket.

    I like the shirt with double cuff cufflinks and under so I order a jacket with a slightly enlarged end of the sleeve. This is a classic shape, proven over decades. Recommend.

    Hopefully this will all read. I apologize for graamati and construction of phrases. I write through the translator.

    I like it when you keep it quiet. Your clothes, I mean. Of course. Very nice, HF.

    HF, tried to comment in the thumbs-up section, but it didn't go through. I wanted to say, this is one of your best fits in recent memory. Are the sleeves of this jacket slimmer than your others? Wonderful tie. In all, a great fit.

    Perfect tie to add some season color, texture and "punch" to classic, subtle outfit.

    Thanks Victor.

    The word for suit is the same as the word for costume in Russian, I see. In English, "costume" has a rather different meaning to "suit". Although it may be that your translator has a pointed sense of humour, as it isn't the first time my outfits have been described as costume! :)

    Anyway, the suit's not mohair, but normal wool. I don't think there's any angora in it, but can't remember for sure.

    Thanks; only on SF - or in my wardrobe - is a windowpane suit, with a striped shirt, textured tie, pocket square and suede shoes considered quiet rather than eccentric... :)
    Sometimes comments don't go through; sometimes a page refresh causes them to reappear, but rarely even that doesn't work. Think it's a software bug.

    The sleeves aren't any slimmer; in fact, if anything, everything on this suit is looser than some other items I have. Photos sometime lie. :)

    Either that, or the way the fabric hangs around me just works OK. Thanks for the compliment though; in fact, I was partly inspired by a fit I saw recently on here (maybe even from yourself; I'm not sure who to credit, exactly) that combined brown and grey in a way I thought was interesting and worth experimenting with myself in my own way. SF is still good for getting inspiration like that.

    nice dunhill cufflinks. There is a bespoke cufflink thread regarding a pair of cufflinks a jeweler is working on with me, would be great to get your feedback in that thread, see the link in signature. also, great bags. beretta makes nice stuff from what i've seen. They have a similar bag for about 1200 euros (1950 USD) here (Suede and crocodile) http://www.madaboutown.com/bags/beretta-suede-briefcase.html What do you think? What other bags do you use?

    First off, can we please put spoiler tags on that shit? :embar:


    It's a bit short, and the buttoning stance is a bit high, but it looks good overall. It's certainly more youthful than much of what we old fogeys here on MC wear.

    Try buttoning only the bottom button of the coat, rather than the second button, so the lapel rolls all the way down. I think that would look especially good, considering how high the buttons are already.


    I think you'd be better served by a higher contrast up top. The values of the shirt and tie seem just a bit two close.

    Today, featuring another Ugly Tie. Some cleaner pressed the life out of these lapels a while ago; I am still trying to bring them back to life.

    At the risk of beating a dead sheep, the shoes - particularly the red ruby Dorothy slippers - need to go. Otherwise, I dig, I dig.

    In a circus...well, i'd rather call it individualism, but hey, that's just me.


    You'll be pretty alone in saying that. Nevertheless: thx :)

    Today: a prep look.

    Wow, Pete. Just wow. Great fabric, lovely cut, well chosen accessories. You just knocked it out of the park. Maybe I can persuade you to go shopping with me!
    I think it's far from a tragic mistake. The advice to try as separates has potential, and I think it also works as a suit. Maybe a navy tie?
    Great photograph. Suit's nice, too... ;)
    I was going to give you some stick for the crest/badge on the jacket, but since it's for your club... Ah, screw it. Unless you're actually wearing the jacket in the club, I think that's just over the top. Otherwise, great fit.
    Security guard with a twist. However you're living your life lately seems to be agreeing with you. You look quite content!
    F***in' great, Gnatty. One of the best looks I've seen from you. And I generally don't even like red ties!
    I can't believe I'm putting myself on the opposite side of PSG on a matter of color, but I think the tie is just a bit too saturated for the rest of the look. It's all I see when I first look at the pictures.
    Excellent, Doc. I generally like your aesthetic, but on days like today, your fits are exemplary.
