    I'm interested in your job constraints concerning your wardrobe. Would it be too forward to ask what kind of environment forbids conservative dress?

    It's worth noting that SB posted three or four fits in the Good Taste thread, in the midst of many posters who were getting obliterated by Manton and Foo, and he nailed those fits. I think that was 2012, a year after his own rude awakening.

    SB was also one of the first to comment on a first fit of mine in Tailor's thread, and was very helpful.

    You really should have, because you suck. GET OUT!!

    Also, that link was superb, Crusty with a goatee, a classic Orgetorix post, good times.

    I dont even know what my first WAYWRN fit pic was, but it was miles worse than yours or Clags'.

    This is so obscenely good. 10/10 would frame photograph.

    I really enjoyed Don's most recent fit as well. Thanks, Stitch. I agree that the sleeves are a little short on the jacket. What other fit issues do you have with it?

    Thanks. I have two lights that I use when taking pictures at night. One of them has been broken for the past two weeks or so. Today it started working all of a sudden. Best thing after natural light.

    I hesitated on commenting on that because it may have been nothing more than your pose, but it looked maybe a tad short and boxy. I decided to err on the side of being a jerk.

    Colours and textures are all really really good,but the fit of the jacket is certainly not 10/10.

    First could be colors. I also like the way the SC looks almost like outerwear. I also like the slightly short sleeves, the slightly boxy jacket, and the way they both look with the cuffed trouser. Silhouettes and proportions, then. I tend to like what AAS posts, though - and since I don't know a thing about CM, most of my reactions are pretty knee-jerk. I would say that I like this outfit because it "looks plush and chunky and sharp all at the same time."

    The only thing I'd change is the shirt - for a barrel cuff (this is term, no?), because everything else about the outfit looks really casual and easy to me; but maybe the links are there because there's a peak lapel involved?

    In the formality scheme you're definitely correct about the cuffs. It's very nice to see your take on MC stuff though, please do keep commenting and posting feedback over here. :)
