    It's not a joke if you never stop. Everyone knows how it feels and it's incredible shallow, close minded, and ungracious. This has been annoying me for a while and I've tried being nice, but your bs diatribes have always pissed me off about this. Block iso and move on if you're incapable of growing up and stopping with the narrow mindedness.

    @YRR92 , yeah, I like BD collars for the same reason, but can't really wear them to an interview. Well I could have I suppose. I was honestly really disappointed by CT shirts in general. I doubt I'd ever recommend them. I bought 3 of them. Guess they're just going to be casual shirts from now on.

    @Isolation dear god have those pants hemmed! Top block looks cool though. I think DB's are better for the look you want to achieve. I think I've mentioned that before. I want a DB navy blazer :/

    I think Iso's DB's need the huge flare taken out of them. Even women's jackets don't look like that. I'm more ok with the super skinny waist than I am with the flare.

    Pretty sure that is from holding his arm up to take the pic. The right side has no flare. The waist suppression is a bit dramatic for my taste as well though....but that's what he likes.

    Isolation, have you checked out kilgour already? They have a nice androgynous silhouette for their new collection. Hell, they even have a vertical slit instead of a chest pocket.

    Could be but I doubt it. The reason I doubt it is because I have noticed it before. It's always way overboard.

    It's ironic because I specifically got these pair of trousers (from luxire under other posters' suggestions) trying to get something fuller cut and with full break compared to my usual slim trousers with no break ones, and I also picked one of my less waisted jackets.

    Thanks guys anyway.

    ps. I posted the question in the alterations thread, but if anyone can give suggestions on how to get the trousers adjusted I'd appreciate it.

    I've walked by Kilgore but I might bring a poker player friend to get outfitted so I might have a closer look.

    Yes I still don't have good photos because I've just moved but haven't got my camera and I'm always awake after dark, but I'll see if I can get better photographs taken in the future.

    Here's another picture of the jacket as a suit:

    Just take them to a tailor and ask for no break or slight break. I prefer the drape with no break tbh (i.e. kiss the shoes).

    Those trousers don't have a full break, they are just too darn long.

    Yeah. That's not a break, it's a puddle!

    I don't think he writes much (could be wrong), but his Tumblr is definitely worth following.

    Second try with this cord suit and this time I wear a little bit more casual shirt (oxford cloth) and tie (grenadine garza grossa).

    That might be too much orangey warmness for my taste. I'd have gone with a darker pair of shoes (perhaps a chocolate brown), and perhaps a navy grenadine tie. I still like that suit though.
