    If you are English and a UK citizen and have a posh Upper crust accent to boot, you are a God in Hong Kong!!! ::slayer::teach:


    Edit: Sorry, just saw you grew up in the USA. I guess no posh accent then.:blush:

    Shoulders could be wider to balance your frame, but they don't look like they're pulling, either. The flare may not be for everyone, but in all it looks fairly Anglophile. I also like the large scale shirt & paisley tie with the suit.

    More than anything else, I'm wondering what that suit would look like after a pressing :)

    I like the look as a whole, SB. I dislike cuffing jeans once, tho. At least twice or not at all. It just looks...unfinished. Sorry if that's unclear.

    Sounds like you want a very Neapolitan coat. Dropping the front dart to the hem is disguised with patch pockets and more distinctive with flap or besom pockets. Does Frank do spalla camica?

    Thanks, P. Jeans are so idiosyncratic. I can see where each of you is coming from, but I have a hard time wearing jeans in any other way when wearing boots. Another turn of the cuff looks too bulky to my eye, and no cuff looks like there isn't enough "weight" at the end of the leg.

    ^This.

    If anything it means the front balance is slightly long, as there is a very slight angling apart of the vertical stripes, but it's mostly just that the quarters have been cut very open on purpose.

    Nah man, we talked about it at your trunk show. I mentioned something vague and you hit the nail on the head saying something like you were looking at them to make some stuff and ultimately went another direction. What's the website?

    Not sure he's talking about the quarters here. If you can imagine ctp (awesome get up btw) turned 90 degrees so we can get a profile shot, it appears that the jacket doesn't fall like two pieces of paper sitting on top of one another (for lack of a better term). It would look like this : "<". I don't think thats a fit issue, but more of a breaking in issue. CTP, is that a brand new coat, first time wearing? I find on my jackets maiden voyages this happening sometimes.

    The coat is rather comfortable, yet has its fit issues. Shoes are not rubber soled, but double oak with topy. It was a local fall festival where I represented my own practice.
