    Take because my wife was mocking my socks - I have no idea when I got these, found them during a clearout the other day. Worn with brown suede Sulka loafers and bespoke linen trousers:

    Out of sight is a surcingle / lizard belt, yellow university stripe shirt and a blue fresco half-lined sportcoat with smoked MoP buttons.


    Consider me intrigued

    Solid. Coat looks great.

    Some of your suit jackets/SCs look a bit 'off' to me Orge, usually in the front quarters area but I can't put my finger on what it is, but this jacket fits you very well, and you've combined it with a nice set of complimentary duds too. Great job.

    Great tie. Those pants come out as a very dark navy in the pic - almost too dark, imho.

    Thanks. If you care to point out specific examples, I'd love to get a better idea of what you're talking about WRT my other jackets.

    Everyday, my friend.... everyday [​IMG]

    Actually, I'm on leave (wore the suit to a fancy local political function I attended with my mother)... other than that, just relaxing at the beach, getting more tattoos and simply enjoying the fact that I don't have to salute anyone for a while [​IMG]

    If you're really interested, take time to review your own fits.

    Compare your fits to people (here or IRL) whose aesthetic matches your ideal.


    you saved me from writing a novel C.

    i have nothing else to add.

    Will do going forward. It seems like your suits and jackets often seem to fit you well around the shoulders and chest but the vertical balance seems off, like they are short/tight - perhaps 'truncated' is the best word I can think of - around the lower quarters which doesn't flatter your build. I'm not suggesting that you should go for loose, baggy quarters and as ai understand you thrift a lot of your gear for enviably low prices it may just be a nit pick as I'm pretty sure you are regarded highly among the better dressed SF igents.

    For a minute I thought 'when did Russel Brand join the forum?' but then I remembered you're not a long haired English fella but a beautiful exotic lady. Scarf looks fine!

    I think it's a very unique touch.
