    I´m pretty sure it´s only the pose, but your sleeves do look way to short.
    Good eye, and it's not the pose. These sleeves do, in fact, feel shorter than I'd like, but only get that way after I've worn the coat for a while if it's just been pressed, or if I don't press or steam the sleeves between wearings (not usually something I mess with). The creasing of the linen at the elbows causes the sleeves to draw up a considerable amount. This is something I'm displeased with my tailor about and have since avoided on subsequent linen coats (this one is several years old). As this was one of my first linen suits, I didn't know to account for the creasing/shortening effect, but my tailor should have IMO. Since this has working buttonholes, it can't be fixed. Linen can't easily be let out without scarring anyways, so even if I were ok with more spacing between the cuff and the first button (I'm not), I'm prohibited from changes. I still wear it anyways, though never without noticing the sleeve-length issue.

    Spoo's post above inspired me to come out of hiding. Hope everyone is doing well.

    Very warm today, so the blazer came off really fast. New shirt too, love the collar [​IMG]

    I am opposed to anything other than black trousers with black shoes. I might wear navy or grays if I didn't own tan/walnut.[​IMG]

    I am relatively new to SF but I would think the consensus is that it is a no no to have the skinny part of the tie be longer than the fat part, it is a definite re-tie event for me when that happens.

    I'm a huge PG fan and would DTO 90% of his fits if my job required suits/sportcoats. But, this one falls in the other 10%. I think it's the juxtoposition of the formality of the pindot tie and the relative casualness of the windowpane suit. To me, the sum of its parts exceeds the whole.

    I saw in your profile that you are a baggage handler, if this is true, you are the best dressed baggage handler I've ever seen, and... someone of your size must be missing a lot of fine threads from their luggage! [​IMG]
    - not only are there a lot of PG's out there but we are all apparently the same size according to my tailors

    - me too..

    - I wish all over new posters would take there time & then post consistently well edited fits like you

    Are the pants cotton? If so - great fit. As a slim guy I am often frustrated at the tendency of cotton to gather and bunch whenever there is excess material. There is a little of that going on, but they contribute a lot to this clean/relaxed (but still dressed well) look.

    The weather is only just beginning to clear here in NYC, and even with sunshine, it is not supposed to go higher than the mid-50's. I broke out a suit I've not worn in a while, and it's a shade large on me - it may make a visit to the tailor soon for some adjustments.


    Despite your concerns about the fit of your suit, you look great! I appreciate your taste in wearing dark, traditional suits. Your clothing, sense of style, and personality have come together quite well. I admire your willingness to stick with traditional standards. Please keep up the good work.

    The items themselves are all nice, not necessarily in this combination, though.
    Why not? Blue and orange are complements, after all.
