    I have to admit I didn't think you were gonna pull that one back from the brink, man. Well done. Now just add a lighter pocket square with some kind of pattern to get a little texture in there.

    ^^ That may be the best look you ever posted, PT. Srs.
    North - Perfect South - :lookaround: :)
    Whenever PSG comments positively on color, you know you positively nailed it. Thanks man.
    Its not my wedding ring. Its signifies a personal allegiance to something, and I never take it off.
    He nailed it. That.
    You keep saying this, but I am totally missing it. I have not read every post the last few days, but who is getting salty?? I see just some light hearted ribbing. I personally :inlove: Victor and am in awe of his sunshine.
    White PS and this would have been Babe Ruth'ed.
    You are nuts dude. :laugh:
    Good point, noted. Thanks!

    Okay!

    Let's see what SF groupthink thinks about my second suit (first suit still at the tailor).

    [​IMG]

    charcoal with white pinstripe.
    pink shirt.
    red tie.
    white pocket square.
    full brogues.

    Personally, I feel that my pocket square isn't folded correctly and should be more flatlined. Yay? Nay?

    Personally I think you should worry about other important stuff before you worry about your pocket square.

    -You need wider shirt collar
    -Jacket lapel too slim
    -Tie too slim
    -Jacket button is pulling too tight
    -Pants too long

    That is just based on my very subjective personal preference. Do not take what I said seriously.

    Victor,

    Please keep posting lots of pictures. You are doing a wonderful service.

    Like Victor, I also shave my head and have a light complexion. Not having any hair to provide contrast with my skin makes it very difficult to wear certain shades of colour. As a result, I've tended to keep to the dark blue and brown palettes when choosing clothes. Yet the pictures that Victor has posted are excellent examples of how to wear lighter shades for a person that shaves his head and does not have a George Hamilton tan.

    I come here to learn by example: Victor is my muse, my hero, my champion. :slayer:

    I stopped coming to SF after the re-launch of the new site. But now that Victor is here I check it every few hours.

    :fonz:

    You want me to ask him if he's single and interested in hooking up with you?

    My opinion diverges with just about all of these except the last one (pants too long), as I have nothing against slimmer lapels and narrow ties.

    I do think a smaller knot is warranted, however, which would (GASP) perhaps even call for a smaller collar.

    • Lapels look oddly shaped.
    • Pulling at waist.
    • Quarters (lol) too closed.
    • Pants too long.
    • Eyes too closed?

    Does a wider shirt collar mean a spread/cutaway type of collar? I do agree with your opinion of the slim tie though. I will definitely be trying to get a wider red tie (only red tie I have ATM).
    I think you're my new best friend. :nodding:
    What does the term "quarters" refer to? The lapels are oddly shaped due to this suit being a 3-button that I've pressed into a 2. I know, I know, it's a crime, but I wanted a 2-button that badly and the roll didn't come out right, so I just flattened it. Small eyes! To pieceofsand, freedom_fries, and preposterous: I do agree that my pants seem a bit long long in this picture. However, when going in shoe-less, I thought the pants were a bit too short. I believe this is just the shoe being larger than the pants leg opening, causing some bunching, and I will try to rectify this with a new shoe/more hemming. Thank you for your suggestions!
