    If it was 25C outside right now, there would be floods from all the snow.

    Also, it's currently snowing.

    Because I started my working week this night, chances are good to see some more suit action the next days.

    Get a Pal Zileri cord suit from ebay tomorrow and after the alterations I have some more suit action for you next week.

    How many suits do you own, out of curiosity?

    Shows promise. May I make a few suggestions for your next fit posts:

    - Size up the photos. This can be done as the final step in the photo adding process. Select the largest "maximum frame size" of 500 x 1000 pixels.
    - Take better photos, preferably in natural light (outdoors or near a window), with a longer focal length to avoid perspective distortion.
    - One outfit at a time.
    - Include a full-fit shot (as above, seated or standing) and a couple of well-focused close-ups demonstrating details such as pattern and texture.
    - Unbutton your jacket when seated. Unless it's a DB of course.
    - Generally, this thread is for classic fits incorporating pressed trousers and tie. Your tie-less fits might be better posted in the MC Casual thread.
    - Keep posting, and don't be offended if you get canned or ignored at first. Persistence and a positive, friendly attitude will pay dividends.

    Welcome!

    Disagree. If you're wearing tailored clothing, I think there's a place for you here.

    As a matter of fact, I think this thread should be renamed "What Are You Wearing Right Now? Tailored Clothing Edition"

    The shirt is not the issue IMHO, it's your trip to the vintage store
