    Being honest doesn't mean using abusive language. There is a civil way to put anything, however people seem to need everything sugar-coated before it being handed to them without crying like a baby on this forum lately.

    Interesting. If anything, I find it too puny.

    I have the opposite problem, I am too scared to post fit pics because I know I will then have to toss half/all my wardrobe and start over :laugh:

    I recently posted a fit pic, and Spoo was able to set me straight (so to speak) in a very gracious manner. I will admit I was hoping that I would get approval, but knowing that the waist was taken in too much is very helpful going forward and making new purchases. To be honest I still plan on wearing the SC as I love the pattern and I am too poor to buy more SCs at the moment, but I see no reason to get up in arms over asking for someone else's opinion, and then not liking what I hear.

    Some do. Others don't. Just say it, why do you care about the poor bastards who take it personally? If anything, they should be grateful that people like you provide pointers. Nii often provides critique and I feel that people are thankful in general. I know I learned a great deal from him.

    There is also something called constructive criticism. And I have a sneaking suspicion that people would not be so "honest" and present themselves in such a rude manner if they were actually face-to-face with the target of their criticism as opposed to being a bully from the safety of a keyboard.

    Maybe it's the angle? Or maybe I have bought into the spread collar hype :laugh: I say this as I admire the two OCBD shirts I just received :bigstar:

    That's a normal, healthy reaction, imo. Without getting too psych I feel that people take direct critique as a judge of character here. If somebody says you can't match patterns well it says nothing of you as a human being.

    OK, here is a critique. NYRanger's suit is way too tight across the hips giving the impression of saddlebags. Stylewise, the pocket square is both too prominent in its height, and seems to be a bit at odds with the jacket and tie as far as texture and overall look.

    NYR I really like the combinations you come up with!

    Is the PS white or light blue? Also, there would appear to be an odd indentation on the side of your SC, could be nothing, just something I noticed.

    I recently received my first MTM sport coat, and I LOVE it. It was made by Anthony Paranzino, a.k.a. Tony the Tailor, a.k.a. my new best friend. Tony's a forum member so you can contact him via PM, or you can reach him through his website: http://www.bestmastertailor.com.

    Meh, I don't post here prevalently just because I really don't see the point of doing so. If I put together a good outfit, I will post away--but until I can adequately build up my wardrobe, I would rather just learn.
