    AS, at least you mix patterns/colours really well - Yet the sheer amount of rule breaking that guy is doing is crazy, but I guess that is what inspires the vapid #menswear followers to dress like him. What the hell is the point of wearing a DB without buttoning it, or not doing up double monks? I can't believe twitter and Tumblr fawn over Lino and Lapo, they dress like a joke.

    I'm not the biggest fan of Lino. I think his jacket and pants are too tight, his pants are too short and his shoes are clunky. His tie and overcoat game is on point though. Real talk. I like Lapo.

    Those lucky 7s are kinda goofy to me. Anyway, good to know I'm not alone here.

    I don't like the 7s either, but the ties are very nice otherwise. Also, thanks for the compliment. [​IMG]

    Thanks, Stitches! From the moment I put it on, it instantly became one of my favorites. :)

    I would call them light gray. Slate is prolly closer. Here they are next to some of my med gray and charcoals. They are on the far left.

    I done messed up e'rbody's priorities with that there thread. [​IMG]

    Which reminds me, I'll be getting in touch with some folks here and there to help me with a project starting next week. I'll be asking people who are known for certain things to be selecting a best of whatever that category is. For example, @upr_crust , @Holdfast , and @in stitches , being known for their poses, will be asked to pick their five favorite poses from that thread. I'll be asking @Pingson , @Manton (should he want to participate), and @Cleav to pick 5 CBD looks (though I'm worried that they may fail to select themselves in a bout of misplaced humility, as if I had to choose 5 CBD looks from the last year, they might take all 5, though Elio would probably squeeze on in there as well).

    Probably going to be between 15-20 categories.

    Canali is generally considered a good fit for those with "wide shoulders". I have only seen them in drop 6. What this means for someone of my proportions is that a suit with a 46" chest and a correspondingly wide shoulder will have a 40" inch waist. If you have a 38" waist, for example, you will have to get the pants tailored and the jacket waist suppressed. Difficult if your drop is bigger. But that is almost always the case with OTR unless you are one of those fortunate few for whom OTR in some makers is a perfect fit. I have seen Isaia, Brooks, Armani and other brands with drop 7 and 8. They may have them in Canali, but I haven't seen them. So far as pants are concerned, you will rarely get the young man's ideal of slim fit and sub 8" opening OTR. And rise is a matter of personal taste, but it tends to be higher in high end brands (generalisation). Tailoring also required. Check out the result below when Cox had a Canali expertly adjusted. He is slim, and it works more than well. He is certainly not a "fatty". Failing that, MTM or bespoke.
