    Nobody says you have to play, but I'd appreciate it if you did! :nodding:

    Test shirt came in. Now to wear and wash and wear it again, then finish up the order.

    I understand completely. Get yourself a tripod and get outdoors.



    Ahem. You're really putting that bottom button to the test there, sir. :)

    Thank you for your comment!

    Once again I apologize, but I do not speak English. Translate to an electronic translator.

    Do not quite understand the meaning of this question, if not difficult to rephrase please.

    Thank you for your understanding!

    Ваши ботинки выглядят странно с этим мотоциклом.

    Yes, yes, they do. A bike like that calls for wearing leather boots. Just a friendly comment.

    Hi Bafe - Thanks for your second post. How's the weather in Zurich? I offer you the following obervations: 1.) Belt and shoe seem fine to me. I'm sure some folks around here will hate your socks - but for a casual fit I say have fun with them. 2.) The hat is ok - but perhaps would look better at an rakish angle. And perhaps better still to not wear it all - would have to see your face without it to determine for sure. 3.) I'm not fan of the meh color of your tie. And please tie it such that it reaches your belt. 4.) You have a somewhat challenging build to dress. You will do well to consider this further as you develop more fits. To that end fits which are dark on top/light on bottom or vice versa are generally not flattering to fuller frames. Try to build some outfits with lower contrast between the two halfs. You will find that if you focus on creating continuity from shoulder to toe in your jacket/pant/belt combinations that it will more flattering on you. 5.) Is your lapel collar flipped up in back. If so stop it now and never do it again. Best - G

    Nice looking collar. Looks like it fits well everywhere but the waist.

    Korshak, no?

    I agree...though I think it would probably be workable with any solid grey suit. And matched with a white, straight-fold PS...that tie needs to be playing alone on the jungle gym.

    Hi, thank you for the advices. The weather really sucks, but since I have to prepare some exams, no problem.
    1)I'm a student, this means no dress code for me and I'm completly free to have fun
    2)I'll post a picture without it as soon as possible.
    3)I really like it, perhaps it isn't very bold or impressive but under the right light I find it look great on a pink shirt (By the way, I couldn't find any other color that matches pink shirts as good as green does, maybe a black knit silk would have been ok)
    4)I know, I'm quite fat, sadly I don't own many light jackets or dark pants (apart from a winter flannel pair), I'm searching all the local thrift shops for lighter jackets that fit me.
    5)I did it inadvertently while preparing for the self shot, I'm not a fan of the look.
    Thank you again for the advice.
    PS It's my third post
