    Today I depart
    From my normal mode of dress
    Japan makes nice suits.

    It you are distant
    It appears solid grey;
    Closer, subtle stripes.

    In this photogaph
    My pants look like they're too long
    Then I hiked them up.

    Also my coat sleeves
    Are a bit short for my taste
    Needs alterations.

    I also cheated
    Because the shirt I'm wearing
    Is a non-iron.

    This is my first WAYWRN post (new to SF). I'm a year out of grad school and I'm slowly trying to upgrade my wardrobe. I don't have a pic of the shoes I'm wearing - they're AE Maxfields in chili.

    Agreed. Is this coat a bit tight in the chest Spoo? Or is the bowing an effect of the cut?

    The color combos look swell.

    That is one of your better graph paper shirts luft, I really don't like the ones with thin lines.

    Nice tie too.

    Suit is a bit on the "straight/angular" side.

    Thanks. I have another with really small red checks that I liked when I bought it, but I feel I always struggle with making it work in the context of a full look.

    Thanks very much!


    Thanks, I see you echoed similar today too. The jacket is a bit tight - I had it tailored at my smallest... been porking up a bit lately.


    PLEASE

    Got my suit back today, had the sides taken in and the sleeves slimmed. I think having the sleeves slimmed makes them stick to my arms a little more so they look shorter than before. Either that, or my new shirt is too long. edit: yeah too long Still, better than before.

    Eason, to my eye it looks too short as a whole - the rise on the pants, the length of the pants, the sleeves, and the jacket. Was it intentionally meant to be that way - a la Thom Browne?

    Yeah, shorter rise, more cuff, shorter jacket. Still, not crazy short.
