    Wait, you smell that?
    

    It does seem to be more "relaxed".

    But with smaller lapels...for a did well, I'd say the shirt collar is a good one for you.

    I generally like the vibe you are going for. I (and this is coming from a staunch bracelet proponent) just would not wear bracelets out on a naked wrist with a french cuff. Shirt looks fantastic though.

    noted; it does feel abit tight on the shoulders. I've tried on a slightly bigger size however I feel sloppy in it....I'll have to find a happy medium I guess.



    Thanks Spoo!

    :crazy: That is one tight suit. It might look better with the jacket unbuttoned, but yeah, shoulders look too snug.

    Though the suit in your latest fit looks like it has chest darts, so is not technically a sack?


    I think the shape of the coat is actually not bad; I think it would look a lot better overall if the coat was a bit shorter and the trousers were a bit slimmer. Maybe the coat could be brought in a little bit. Admittedly though, my tastes may not really be suitable for working in law.

    You're right that this coat isn't a sack; it's a relatively recent BB Madison cut. Generally, though, I've learned that so many attorneys dress awfully, that one need only minimum competency to look better than one's peers. Not denigrating my colleagues, but there's a reason that Jos. A. Bank is in the first floor of one of the most law-firm friendly buildings in Philadelphia.

    This is true about most of us. But only the best of us admit it.

    Back to standing out for a sec. I'm not totally against that either. I'm just not a fan of being different for the sake of being different. I think some people, like Neofinitia, stand out, not to shock or distinguish themselves from others, but simply as an expression of who they are and out of a desire to share beauty with others.
    I wore a barong yesterday.
    Very nice.
    Spoo, you're such a slave to the rules.
