    It is the chest that is too snug. Most people in efforts to wear properly fitting clothes end up wearing clothes that are too tight. When you size up in a suit the shoulder width doesn't change all that much. Sizes are based on your chest, not the waist. Find a chest that fits you and the rest can be dealt with by a tailor. It will end up looking better.

    I don't like that jacket, GMM. Is it linen? I don't like that kind of texture with a pattern.

    Blue Wednesday, apparently, for me. Sorry for the poor lighting.

    Polo
    Kamakura
    KentWang
    Drake's
    TaylorStitch
    Meermin

    Opted to go with a knit and pair it with similarly casual items (unstructured/unlined linen/silk jacket, OCBD, chambray pants and suede loafers).

    Gonna follow up that last post with another blue suit: my first suit and my first time posting in these threads!

    With that said, I'd like to apologize for a few things: 1. the poor quality, 2. the hideous tie-knot (I know I need to work on that) and 3. the douchebag-posing. I hope you'll bear with me his time.

    Not bad Squire, I like the shirt collars. The tie just needs to be straightened and tightened up a bit.

    Thanks evil!

    Yeah, I tried straightening it but it wouldn't budge. Still learning and having just watched a video on how to tie the FIH, I think I know where I went wrong. Looking forward to trying again next time, hopefully it'll turn out better now. :)

    Squire, the neck opening is way too wide on that suit for you. I'd look into some other brands and/or sizes to find a maker that "hugs" your neck a bit more.
