    Dig, while I was away you have improved your fits about two million percent. Well done! It's nice to see such a great transformation.

    I like the PS and tie combination.

    Shoes are dark brown suede wingtips from Land's End about 2 years ago and yes, drakes... I wish. TieBar in reality. :hide:

    The sportcoat is a little longer than i prefer. and the pants are a little fuller than im used to....would like some opinions on the coat, I love the fabric but have considered getting rid of it dozens of times because im not 100% on the pockets and lapel

    Quite a daring outfit. I like that you are willing to experiment, that is good. However not all experiments work out as they should :D. I would have to admit to not being a fan of that outfit, I blame most of it on the sportcoat pants combo. Everything fits fine, pants a little baggy but thats alright. I have no personal suggestion other than your evil twin / doppelganger Spoo (;)) and rest of SF may come with some suggestions what to do with that jacket. I personally do not like the jacket, but I have never been a fan of houndstooth. Jacket styling has a vintage appeal, that is good, it has character.

    This is very much, "Best Dressed Man in the Sports Bar."

    You have pulled off some pretty good fits in the past (if I remember correctly) but this one doesn't work. Besides the jacket being too long, it looks too big for you over all. I like the combination of materials, but the fit is way off.

    I had a long ass day and was not even going to get back into this thread till the morning. But Nii, you are giving Mr.Sam some serious fodder with these poses, may he rest in peace... Derek, you are such a Spoo, its not even funny. :) Im gonna show you in a sec where I made the same mistakes. But valiant effort.


    I want to sig this really, really bad. :lol:

    Look at two similar (failed) outfits on me, and you will see that this combo, while totally working in your head - is not the best one do do.

    spoo, i swear i dont have a back log of all your previous fits so i can rip em off. thats fucking hilarious man.

    I like the pattern on the coat, maybe with darker grey trous and a trip to the tailor would benefit. In my head and laid on the bed it looked good, but EVERYTIME I wear that all together I feel off. I need to follow my gut more.

    This is where I think I am making the most progress. The days I over think it, its a fail.

    Derek - SC looks long and maybe a bit bit. It's ok but not great, at least on you. Might work better for someone else. As for the combo, I think the pants, shirt and tie all work but it needs something else. How about a light grey sweater or cardigan instead of the jacket

    Thanks! There were aspects of the "before" that I appreciated but the "after" is just what I was looking for. I need to hunt SkinnyGoomba down and thank him. I used his guidance on how much to taper them.

    Following the trail you have blazed, sir! Carry on, and thanks.

    Much appreciated. I'm finally getting a sufficiently sized inventory to be able to make such a match up.

    Meanwhile, I could just spit!

    I've been obsessing a bit over this fit as I planned to wear it during an upcoming major management meeting of the company for which I work later this week. Today, the dress code came down via e-mail.

    Business Comfortable.

    W...T...F...?

    I've been instructed not to wear a tie during either day of the two day event. :fu:

    I'm deep into revision mode as I type this. Fortunately, I recently had some PRL slacks altered that will work well for day one. Believe it or not, we'll be eating "All American BBQ" on an outdoor terrace at 7 pm at a resort just north of NYC. I'm wearing a camel hair blazer (black!) for protection against what I expect to be temps in the 60's(F). The company is suggesting polo shirts!

    Thursday is still up in the air but I've got an idea in mind. My only concern is that the shirts that I just purchased and I was planning on wearing are spread collar dress shirts and now it sounds like OCBD would be more appropriate. :fu: :fu:

    Barstards!
