    I was going to say the same thing regarding the tie knot (it looks like it might be a bit too big), but it is hard to tell from the angle. A very nice first post in any case, but it it a bit difficult to assess the fit (also because if the angle of the shot). And welcome...

    Well......actually it's the other way around - I match my clothes to the camera. :nest:

    And Malford, if I were to use one of those fabulous leica's I would hope my photos turned out better. Sweet cameras.

    The Stasi secret agent look is so in this year. Did you see their hipster disguises too? The one with teh cut-off jeans reminded me of idnfl's avatar... :(




    Close-up shot came out blurry, so only the full-length pic today. Shirt is a blue micro/graph check.

    Welcome Vic, Your ensemble is very well put together. All items work together perfectly and each serves it's role as it should. I'm particularly fond of your shoes. May I ask who made them?

    Great classic look Fred. Like the more subtle approach lately. I'm starting to come off "Italian" and veering more to "English" myself lately.

    I ENVY YOU on the Lobb's. Still saving up for a pair...!

    Thanks all for the replies on my first shot here. I didn't have anything higher to put my smartphone on. The shot was made in the office, so I had to make do with a table and a book for support.Will look for something else the next time.

    As for the tie, it was an oldie I still had in my collection and I wasn't completely sure about wearing it. As for the knot... I have denied the existence of other knots than a full windsor for the past 22 years. Sorry... [​IMG]

    Not in OC, but the marine layer is pretty thick in the am and doesn't burn off until early afternoon, it's usually upper 50s to mid 60s until then.

    Thanks a lot for the welcome and nice words about what I'm wearing,
    The shoes are beechnut burnished Merton by Crockett and Jones. In the photo they look a little bit darker than what they really are.

    Cheers

    Vic

    Seriously? Even with the pyjama pants? :D
    Like I said, the shirt is to be ignored, I am nitpicking about the jacket...
    (as for the shirt, I shouldnt wear it at all actually^^).

    The vents (which are super deep Napoli style vents [though real Napoli would be unvented]) close not well enough in some positions in which I want them to close (I know it's clothing and it mooves, but then I could go nakes as well).

    Well, see above, the side picture was actually inteded to show the problem with the vents.
    I don't get the exactly what you mean with tension on the sleeve seam, but the other problem is something pretty complicated (and not visible here) that someone spotted who knows a lot about tailoring and analysed the suit for ca.20 minutes in real life (it is an optical difference caused by the shoulder seams which is due to my differently shaped and sloped right shoulder).

    The fabric is a very balky English cloth I brought them (don't what exactly, something random made in Huddersfield), it reveals more than other fabrics...

    This is a suit with eased fishtail back trousers for braces (wtf?) and a double breasted shawl collar waistcoat (which is still to come).
    I had some quite challenging expectations (at some point I even asked for a certain thickness of buttonhole gimp to get neater buttonholes - the fabric is balky as I said and the thicker gimp would compromise "closing" comfort so the used the normal one), especially as it was the first bespoke items that they made for me, but they coped very well, especially with one (!) fitting.

    Hey Vic! Good to see you here. I have kept an eye on your fits occasionally at AAAA.

    Great stuff. BUT I do not dig the combination. I think that the striped shirt is sharp but in a combination with the suit .. idk.. the patterns (IMHO) don't fit that well. I would have worn this suit & tie with a plain shirt.But then again you would be wearing the "president's outfit" (see picture below) What's good? the linen pocket square and your glasses :)
