    As far as I remember this has been done in the 80's aswell, even on sweater sleeves.

    ^ I like the windowpane, but I think you are just too young for a DB.

    It isn't exactly flattering to the body either. Jacky G could do things others could not.

    Almost all of my 15 suits are DB. I have 4 SB's. Trust me if you saw my entire face and over all appearance you would't think I was day under 30. I wear DB for a few reasons. OTR it get better patterns, full cut, I look older- which is something I need and don't need. Customers used to request someone more "senior" to work with them.

    Im not saying that they are strictly for geriatrics - I was wearing a Huntsman pinstripe DB at the age of 31 - but it has to fit your gravitas. From what Ive seen of Paolos face, he does not seem to have the gravitas to pull one off - but he looks at himself in the mirror in the morning and says it works, so, there you go.

    Nah, if I remember right it just doesn't fit inside the shirt cuff.

    Hi Dan,

    Your combination of shirt, tie, pocket square is good to go.

    Adjustments: Your shirt collar appears to loose - you need a smaller neck size. Your tie knot is a bit large and could use a dimple. Pocket square could be more aligned with the angle of the top of the pocket (or use a looser fold which can be more loosely aligned.) To me, the very simple TV fold you've used is fine but I prefer it when this sort of fold aligns pretty much exacly with the top of the pocket.

    Carry on!:)

    Hi, Gdot. Really appreciate your advice.

    You're true about the neck size. Problem is, S sized shirts tend to have sleeves that are too short for me so I have to settle with M.

    I'm aware of the rather bulgy knot. Believe it or not, that was my second attempt ever in tying a tie so I had no idea how to reduce the size of the knot, let alone creating a dimple. Maybe I should try small knot instead of FIH? FYI, that's a knit tie.

    Never mind the pocket square. I actually intended it to align with the pocket but it just wouldn't sit right :/
