    u didn't like my Cappelli suggestion CP? [​IMG]

    On 2nd thoughts it was too close in color to the SC.

    With that jacket I'd say 'go safe, go solid'. Maybe something that picks up a minor + with texture. What about one of the Capppelli donegals on ET?.

    They are green, maybe a light blueish hue, but definitely green. I thought about wearing navy merino ones, but a) it was too warm for that and b) I thought it was too boring.


    Those are Ugolinis.




    Thanks a lot guys! The "stache" (it was just four days old) is already gone though, there was someone who really, really hated it. And she's kinda right, makes me look really sleazy. Which is fun for a while, but all the time...


    Hmm, I don't think so. You don't see a lot of people wearing them here. I, for one, absolutely love them though.

    Attempt 3. Trying the windowpane again after receiving feedback.
    Switched out some stuff...
    Is it better now? Trying to be less matchy-matchy and use more complimentary colors.
    Doesn't really shine that much. Mostly camera flash

    Using my late grandfather's ruby cuff links and matching tie clip. I never see tie accessories on this thread.
    Are they frowned upon?

    Also:

    I understand some folks write things such as, "shoulders too wide, waist too big, hips too wide..."
    What happens when people have less than ideal physiques (which I assume is around 95% of the population)?
    How do I compensate for a boxy body?
    Would an ideal, Savile Row level, skilled tailor end up cutting a boxier looking suit or is there a work-around of some kind?

    All so confusing...
    Thanks!

    Those comments had little to do with your physique and reflected the reality of the fit of your clothes. Just because you may not have an idea physique doesn't means that your clothes shouldn't fit properly. A suit, with careful alterations, emphasizes the good parts of your physique and hides the bad parts. You hardly look rotund so you shouldn't bee too unnerved by those suggested alterations.
