    I like every item here in isolation, but it is really jarring as an outfit. Wouldn't pair any item with the others, personally. I just don't really get what you were going for, maybe.


    The suit looks great, but the bow tie is too wide for it, and I feel the square doesn't quite chime in. Great fit on the suit though, and I like those shoes with it.


    I assume this must be bespoke. I don't know... somehow the extreme shaping it needs to fit propely doesn't seem right to me. I guess my subconscious archetype of what a leather jacket should look like isn't that. But that may just be that my eye for casual clothes is poor. *shrug*





    Monday... feeling green...?

    I like the shirt - have a similar one by RLPL myself - but consider it a spring item.

    i've gotten comments about my hair ... not being very "grown up"
    so i tried styling it differently today

    one of my bosses asked if i got a haircut so i guess it is noticeable
    it may not look much different in pictures, but i styled my hair down and to the side today
    not all spiky up
    i have very straight very "asian" hair so i am still trying to figure out what to do with my hair

    [​IMG]
    wearing one of the new ties and using that purple patterned silk ps that i failed with before
    need to figure out how to fold/puff silk ps's better

    edit -
    [​IMG]
    tried a rolled puff for the first time
    it's a little too much purple action but i like this ps fold a lot

    The jacket is too short. This can be seen in the photo behind. Not good. Sorry...

    hmm you think so? the bottom of the jacket ends where i can cup the bottom with my hands right at my knuckles does this mean i have short arms then? O_O hmm i wonder if getting a slightly longer jacket would get rid of the "bell bottom" effect that i have with these suits?
    thanks i still need to learn how to handle the darn ps properly ... silk does not like to "fold" ... and my puff was just too out of control

    Yep, but it needs a bit of work on the jacket. I wanted to wear it a few times before I returned it for tailoring.

    I see what you're saying. Thank you.
    :) The opera was great! Onegin himself was Croatian, I think, but did a really good job singing in Russian. I understood almost every word. Olga, Tatiana and Lenskiy were all Russian singers, so, naturally, I understood them as well.
    Victor, you are one of the most interesting posters here. Your diversity and photography is amazing. Also, I could only imagine how many Russian women's hearts you break just by walking past them. For their sake, I hope you don't take the metro.
    Thanks. :happy:
    I'm slim, but not terribly athletic. I don't work out, all I do is various cardio like dancing, playing tennis, drinking, etc. But with photos like this, the closer you are to the camera, the more it "bubbles" the middle part making the subject look slightly chunkier. Move away from the camera like VictorSF does for better proportions.
    I disagree with the bow-tie. I couldn't possibly move the tripod any further away so my head would fit in the photo. But if it were there, you'd see that it's rather large (thanks, Dad) and the bow-tie was made proportional to my head rather than my neck. If that makes sense at all... Would you mind helping me out with a pocket square here? What would you wear? I had trouble finding something that would look good. Whenever that happens with other suits or coats I just go for a white linen, but here I felt it was too close to the color of the suit.

    I think he was asking if the lobbs are bespoke, but I might very well be wrong.

    VictorSF, you are a machine!
    Style with technical precision, without getting mechanical!

    Kudos
