    Haven't brought this suit out in a while. It's been too hot.

    Been considering selling this suit for a bit, so testing out one more wear to see if I do want to keep it. The shoulders are a bit big. Keep it, or work on it? Its a very dark chocolate brown. Also, lapels are a bit skinnier than my others, but that does not bother me so much.

    Spoo, the lapels are more of a dealbreaker for me than the shoulders, also is the sleeve (your right) twisting a little.
    The fabric is interesting, not sure if I like it or not...seems more of a cocktail suit than business wear. overall, the combo works for me, but the suits detailing isnt quite sitting right.
    I think you can and do better with others.
    Sorry if I'm being harsh, but if your not sure as well, I say flip it forward.

    Not harsh at all... today is really just an experiment to see if its worth keeping it or passing it on. I think my mind is made up, but wanted to poal the field. I appreciate the input!

    I really like the shoes, and have been considering getting a pair of black longwings myself. Alden?

    What do you guys do If you pair something up in the morning, and by noon you had realize the combination does not work, do you bother to make an effort to change your outfit or do you rock it until the end of the day?

    Funny you ask. I literally just stumbled upon the fact that the collar on my shirt does not have the right shape or height at all for my SC today. I am admittedly embarrassed that I didn't see this in the morning, but eff it. I'll eat lunch at my desk today :).

    Im not feeling myself today. But you know what, it happens more often than not, so you just suck it up and go with it. :) *closes door, shrinks behind screen*

    Yeah, I can see that. It would be easy to wear it as separates, with beiges/white/etc. As a suit, it's tough... open-collar white shirt is an unimaginative option, I guess... maybe ecru shirt and pale/mid-brown tie? Tough, but what a fun suit to experiment with.

    Today's chocolate-brown suit on th other hand, that one I'd move onto pastures new. The pattern is just a bit too weird.




    Talking of tough-to-coordinate suits...

    The coat looks like it's not fitting correctly around the back of your collar. I think I have seen this in a few of your jackets.
    Holy heck, good yo see you back, though I am not a fan of the pink/purple mixing. Althoughm you do look very similar to…
    Did you and BleachBoy coordinate outfits this morning? :lol: This isn't working for me, Spoo. I am not a fan of that cut, fabric, or color of suit, and the shirt/tie combo don't seem to go very well with it. Again, a valiant effort that just falls a little short. I think your consideration is well-placed and you should feel ok parting with that suit.
