    Interesting point, CM. Never noticed that before, but you may be right. Jacket is unstructured, actually wears a lot like a sweater.

    @patliean1 - Welcome! Jacket seems to fit you well from what I can tell. Scale on the shirt & tie might be a little close, and, at least from the picture, the square doesn't really seem to fit in anywhere.

    First day back from vacation and I'm back to my old ways. I'll chalk this fit up to jet lag.

    As you say, a little short. To my eyes, the main issue with jc's jacket is that it looks too small overall, throwing the proportions off.

    @Cotton Dockers very nice tie and SC. But as already noted, the completely unstructured shoulders don't really flatter you here.

    @patliean1 , welcome. Suit seems to fit well and I like the roped shoulders. Overall, I'd tone down on patterns and colours, though. A bit too much going on for my taste. Also, i think a 'normal' wide spread shirt collar would look better than this extreme cut away.

    You, sir, need some new glasses. This shape always "imprisons" the eye. Something larger would make you a lot more open, friendly/better looking.
    Very nice! And so much better than your... mmh... private time pose.
    Up top a very nice fit, just the shoes are too casual, I think.

    Not minding that as much as the contrasting buttonhole.

    A rare tie miss from Braddock, IMO. The jacket is swell.

    Tuesday, and a mild day, after a predicted bout of early rain. I've eschewed even the wearing of a hat - it would seem I don't need the insulation this morning.

    Happy Spring.

    Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
    Shirt, tie, cufflinks - BB
    Braces - Lewin
    Shoes - C & J

    ^^ nice outfit, but why pose in front of such a run-down background? I'd never do anything like that. :lol:
