    Nice one,@jcmeyer
    I agree with heldentenor that it looks most natural on mossrockss though.
    Your combination with the cardigan I like,but the worsted suit with slim lapels doesn't really fit the trad vibe, TBH.

    All true and good feedback. This suit, as with all of mine, was made before I realized the error of my lapel ways. Eh well, you work with what you got until you get more - and no one at the office notices. ;)

    I'll give the navy blazer a shot the next time this tie comes up in the rotation :nodding: Looking forward to see what you come up with next, whenever that happens to be!

    So many good fits posted of late, I've truly enjoyed perusing the last 20 or so pages! Well, it's been quite a while since I posted anything but the warmer weather has reenergized me. So here's my humble contribution. Apologies for the lousy phone pics. Hmmm..I do believe the sleeves on this SC could be a bit longer. Oh well, Happy Spring fellas!

    I'm definitely not a proponent of very matchy pocket squares, but here it seems without context to me. I think I would have gone with something darker to balance the tie.

    I think you would benefit from a wider lapel, proportions would be more balanced.

    Sartorial perfection, as always. But the "stache" is the crowning element.

    I, and I'm sure just about everyone else, agree.

    Theoretically if the tailor had more of the same fabric left, anyone know how intensive/possible would it be to change the lapels after the fact? Can ask in the tailor thread too.

    That's my one and only suit. I do like the idea of the herringbone / tweed combo with that tie—the BB version I have (which is the one currently on sale in their stores) is pretty shiny/smooth, which does contrast well with a woolly tweed. Also, I credit elio with reviving my interest in it—I hadn't worn it in a while and was kinda blah on it until he wore that fit and reminded me how much I love the colors.
