    I'm afraid the lighting wasn't what I'd hoped. The pants are actually closer to olive green. The shoes are taupe suede.

    The truth about unbuckled buckles is that i have pretty high instep so most of the double monks just won't buckle on me or if they buckle they hurt.


    The pullings on chest is because of my proportions i have big shoulders and chest and narrow waist,i'm wearing a size 56 now,when i wear size 58 the upper part is looking better but the bottom looks like tent,size 54 is great in lower half but i'm afraid to breath in it.Also the shoes are not gray,they are navy suede.




    Casual today.

    If it is pulling like that, it just doesn't fit. You can't say "oh, it is my proportions" because the idea is to get a jacket that fits your proportions.

    That's a sharp sportscoat. Or should I call that a blazer? Are those buttons MOP?

    Hi NRY, I am pretty new and don't know much. I think you have your suits made bespoke, in which case you've considered this, but I want to ask: why are your 3 buttons so close together? I think it makes the suit look very, very long (and you, a giant). Might look more calm or balanced if they were spread out a bit, perhaps a bit higher.

    Then don't wear double monks?


    Then buy a 58 and have the waist taken in?

    In this post, wearer is 5'11, I have read that rounded is for taller builds. Is square toed out, for all styles/builds?
