    Victor, I have also been enjoying your posts. That grey sports coat is especially lovely - would you share details of the cloth?

    Very pretty colours/patterns; I like.

    I must admit that I'd prefer the suit with flapped pockets instead of patches though. That's one (presumably?) Italian influence I just don't get. Patches are a rustic sort of detail to my mind. Even though that suit isn't super-formal by any stretch of the imagination, it still feels to me that it's formal enough to take flaps instead. *shrug*

    No hate from me. I love the pattern and fabric.


    Are you wishing for winter again, Spoo? All week with the winter colors.

    Like the shirt/tie and the colors but not a fan of the suit.

    - Fit is off - lapels bowing/lifting off from chest is a RTW feature. Something about the shoulders is unflattering but I can't pinpoint it.

    - Fabric looks like a lightweight flannel, which is my least favorite cloth. Does not have the body/drape of a solid worsted, nor does it have the rich plushness of a good flannel. Instead it looks flimsy and gauzy.

    - The patch breast pocket and the curvy hip patch pockets are distractingly casual. I like patch pockets on suits but the effect should be more subtle.

    ^ Magnificent, Victor! Are these all pieces you personally own, or are you modeling them for fashion spreads? You have such a vast collection.

    kgmessier, Thank you!

    This is my wardrobe. In fact, it is not very large.

    I leave only a certain number of prophetic in the locker room, and sewing or buying new things - old seeding.

    I also do audits every year, and then that a year has never dressed - get rid of them.

    This helps save space in the closet.

    In the rotation is usually about:

    50 jackets (including suit couples)
    15 vests,
    50-60 pairs of pants,
    About 100 pairs of shoes
    60-70 shirts,
    100 ties,
    the same sock and breast pocket handkerchiefs,
    20-30 cufflinks,
    about 60 belts and suspenders
    20-25 coats and cloaks,

    Very fond of hats and scarves, these pieces of 50 items each. :)

    Well, briefcases, handbags - 20 pieces is enough.


    I try to stick to that amount.
    And get rid of excess.

    As a result, wardrobe quite compact, but everything you need in it.

    I was just thinking that. If they are all yours you should post a pic of your closet. Place has to be nuts. EDIT: "About 100 pairs of shoes". Now I definitely need to see the closet.

    Thank you!

    House to quickly take off on a simple Canon.

    A more extensive photo sessions take off my friends, whom I called in every day.

    They shot on Canon 5D in general, sometimes on Canon 50D, 5D when it is not at hand.

    I have a small dressing room, it is more convenient than a wardrobe. [​IMG]

    A part of the seasonal things (in Russia strong differences of climate in the year) is stored in another apartment. Translate them as needed and seasonally.
