    They have worked together as long as I have known Manuel which is at least 20 years but some one told me they have split and operate separate businesses now. They are always very dapper.

    Thanks for the critique - I agree with you pretty much point for point. I wish the jacket were a touch longer. It is slightly roomy, but I like the shape of it and I am hesitant about altering it as I'd rather keep the shape than just have it be too tight. The shirt I usually wear casually without a jacket and tie, but was actually inpired by some of your past combinations to try it out with some solid navy... perhaps I should have also gone less casual with the pants - it was either these (cotton) or grey wool... I just thought the beige might warm up the pallette as opposed to the grey cooling it off.

    I really like your sober, yet interesting outfit today.

    I keep hoping you'll convince me you know more than you're letting on, because I always enjoy a well-informed challenge to orthodoxy. But so far you seem content to rail against the existence of SF "experts" even as you try to position yourself as one.

    If you're not trolling, which I assume you are, your opinions are likely to be considered more seriously if you let them stand on their own merits, rather than wrapping them up in a personality fixation.

    @spoo:
    No worries - at the end of the day I still have the "It's just clothes" attitude, and I know that my wardrobe is by no means exceptional. I am definitely one of the people that are here to learn. That said I'm also "that guy" at work who dresses up, wears pocket squares, wears colorful pants in the summer months, and makes some of his own clothes - so I get a few comments from time to time - useful criticism is refreshing when the comments are usually "What is the name of that color?" and "Is that a napkin in your pocket?"

    I didn't think that someone would write a response nearly as long as my post, but you nearly succeeded.

    Interesting Chris, thanks for that. BTW, I saw Manuel recently and your name came up. He mentioned that he's known you a long time and that he thinks very highly of you.

    So what's the verdict on my gray suit? Unwearable? Should I find a shorter version of me and give them it? :(

    Do you like the fit? Do you have the money to buy a new one?

    I posted a SC here recently that got shot down (in a nice way :p ) but I'm not giving the thing away. Funny thing is I get quite a few compliments on it from strangers/colleagues. It bothers me a little knowing the shoulders are too wide and that the waist is taken in too much, but it is wearable.

    That being said some of my SC's are not wearable and fit me terribly, these I will be selling soon. Don't let SF rule your wardrobe, no one has the budget for that.

    Eason,

    I don't think it's unwearable. I would clean up the trousers a smidge - in both posts it seems a little bunched up at the crotch. After that rock it for any number of nighttime social occasions with sharp shirts and open collars, etc. etc. In other words, play with it's 'of the moment' fit - it's sexy on you. Not sure I could recommend wearing it to work or 'proper' daytime situations though - it's so trendy it's really more 'street wear' than anything else.

    Of course, that's just one opinion.

    It's stylishly short. It's too short for my tastes, but you may find differing opinions here.

    I am probably capable of that, and foo could of course exceed it by a factor of four.

    Should SF add word count and add it just below post count?

    ^Yeah, my take would be similar. It's very fashionable, very of the moment. But it's not outrageous. It wouldn't be my first choice for an extremely conservative setting, but otherwise, wear it and enjoy it. For stuff like that, it's more about context than right and wrong.

    keep it. adjust the trous a bit though. its not classic CBD, but not unwearable. I think you can easily make it work.
