    Actually, what bothers me the most...and this actually bothers me about all my photos...is that I face away from the middle of the screen. I've seriously considered repositioning the tripod and everything to remedy this, but I think that change would also bother me a bit. I may see about flipping the avatar and see how I feel about it.

    I have a question. As I just realized pics I've seen on this forum are yours(for I rarely look at the poster), do your button stances sit pretty high? You sit with your jacket buttoned often and I am curious.

    I have a few full around here.

    The two SuSu jackets I have are pretty low since I get them in longs. I have a Howard Yount RTW. I think that has the highest buttoning point. Then three mtm cuts and one bespoke cut

    I'm afraid you may have missed my point.

    I really like how you have your trousers made. Particularly the last one. It looks to have the largest opening but the silhouette of the trou look fitted in the most proper way. We just need to hike your trousers up higher [​IMG]

    Nah, they all look great. The brown suit looks great, blue one being my favorite. Maybe cause the shoes(they look like Carmina).

    I tried looking up SuSu, waht is that? A NY tailoring firm?

    Wait a minute. Does this mean that only a bunch of servants read my posts? Why, I never.

    I was on guard duty with @Mr. Six today, with a new square from ET. Navy cashmere/wool blazer was a ninety bucks from Uniqlo so although it's a bit too short, and has some other minor issues, I think it works pretty well. I changed out the buttons when I had it tailored.

    I'm sorry @jcmeyer but I don't think this jacket works for you. Not only is it too short, it looks too small overall. Combined with your traditionally cut trousers, you end up with rather awkward proportions and your head looks unusually large.

    Chris Alexander is a legend! I'd love to discuss him in the Architecture Thread.
    You amaze me with the computer sci angle.

    That roks PoP. How would u describe the feel and weight of the shantung?


    Hired!

    Speaking as someone who has a thick neck and sloping shoulders, perhaps JCM u could try higher collars and wider lapels.

    I agree with EliodA that a slightly looser fit would be flattering. Again, nice fit.

    Thanks mate. The shantung is a great tie (from @Henry Carter - as is the pocket hank). Dry and slubby hand as you'd expect from shantung silk, but being untipped keeps the tie light and allows for well-proportioned knots. It's a good year-round tie IMO.
