    Hey fellas...it's been a while! Summer heat and relaxed dress code at work mean I haven't been dressing up as much. But fall is here!

    BTW, forgive the underarm ripple. I was slouching sideways during the photo, apparently.

    Tom Ford is not my favourite, but these two spooPoker's suits look nice, specially the striped one (but no working cuffs?)

    Actually I hate OTC socks. I keep them at calf height. I find that OTC socks keep catching on my pants at the calf and the friction does not let them fall properly. I have 3 pairs, and I plan to toss all of them at the first sign of lint. Also, a school orientation is where parents take their children to meet the teachers for the first time.
    Todays fit? Battistoni. Thanks.
    Thank you so much for the tie - love it! Buy the damn shoes already!!!
    I was in a room full of bicycle toed rubber sole black Aldos. :confused:
    Thank you, Tom Ford.
    :cheers:
    I opted not for functional buttons on these.

    I am not suggesting that you make your shoulders and arms any smaller. In that jacket you have a hourglass look where the upper part is noticeably bigger than the lower part. Why not try to de-emphasize the difference in size between shoulders and the hip area? Maybe a less fit waist would do the trick.

    Thank you! [​IMG]

    Not all of my jackets have a clear form, for many the difference between the shoulders and hips flattened, as you advise. But not strongly flattened! Just when the waist to smooth out much, I like the barrel-column.

    There is still time - I do not have hips are small, a very complex figure: a thin narrow neck and chest, but developed muscles, especially your shoulders and back + narrow waist + wide hips and legs.

    At the same time - a short length of the body and the hands and feet are very long.

    Still there is a slouch, and the difference in shoulder height.

    And the contours of the body are very sharp, not smooth lines - it is because of the body musculature and a small amount of fat.

    Sew on my figure - it is very difficult ...



    In the most recent photographs - fences jackets with partial lining.

    These jackets are made from mixtures of fabric: linen-silk-wool.

    This fabric is very capricious in processing. In addition, it quickly loses its shape to wear (linen wrinkled, especially if it is not reinforced liner)

    Silhouette of summer jackets different from the silhouette of jackets made of wool.

    So - these jackets - not the best option.

    But what to do, linen - linen is ...

    I think the jacket is pretty great myself^. Perhaps fuller legged trousers would help eliminate the illusion of being top heavy. I am in a similar boat as you as I still have a decent amount of muscle left over from when I did power lifting; so I understand the challenge. (5'5, 170) Luckily my legs are too big to fit into most pants resembling slim fit.

    I share your pain, I have a very complex figure too: narrow shoulders, flat chest, thin legs, beer belly... :embar:

    An experiment continues...

    ... I'm increasingly of the belief that if one can find the "right" kinds of "busy-ness" in adjacent patterns, and uses rich enough colours, the visual confusion that results can be a positive rather than a negative. They visually blend rather than appearing as separate items. This is something I mentioned some months ago, but have revisted more recently. Yesterday's look was a toe in the water, using a bold bengal stripe shirt with a houndstooth suit and a moderately patterned tie. I was surprised to see it gather positive feedback from you guys; I was rather expecting a fair bit of flak. Today pushes my little theory a little further down this road, with a complex shirt and tie combination that I'm hoping "blurs together" slightly at a distance. For instance, the effect seems different to me in the close-up and full-length photos below.

    (For maximum Pseuds Corner quotation value, the effect I am trying to mimic is the cluttered but warm/gentle feel of a Victorian era drawing room, rather than an elegant or precise modern lounge :) )

    I think the patterns on bow tie and shirt and nice match in scale - but I think you need a different PS, one that gives more contrast to the tie.

    Holdfast, the one thing that stands out to me is that in the full length photo it looked like you were wearing a camo bow-tie. Curious if its just my mind playing tricks on me...

    Otherwise, I find it visually interesting, if not something I would necessarily attempt. At least not to that extreme
