    I love em. Just haven't had an opportunity to wear mine much because of the weather. I will when it heats up. My orange linen trousers may even make an appearance this year...

    Pretty solid; I would go with a lighter colored ps next time so that it contrasts more with the jacket. Like this, it doesn't look like you're wearing one at first glance.

    For what it's worth, @DonCologne , I would've never thought you were over 40! (that's a compliment).

    @Pliny at his best! Love that tie!

    Good day, gents.

    It would appear I've lost more weight than I thought, and this suit is in need of a bit of nip tuck at the waist.

    A suits girth can be easily altered. Your own, not so. Congrats on the weight loss, @GMMcL!
    Nice fit btw.

    Very nice, simple fit. Is that a linen shirt?

    Chambray

    And thanks, everyone.

    Edit: Although Elio, I found it pretty easy to alter my girth upward. It's the down that was the tricky bit.

    Don's over 40? I'd've put him at early mid 30s

    Yep, I think he's 42...could be wrong, but he is over 40. I need to know his secrets. He's got me by almost 10 years and I look 10 years older than him!

    It does begin to work to one's advantage at a certain point… I think I have about 20 years spread on most of my friends from high school. They're all looking 10 years + over and I'm 10 - younger. It's actually kind of weird like we don't even look like we're from the same generation. No secrets though. Eat well, exercise almost every day and imbibe copious amounts of tiger's blood and cobra venom cocktails.

    It's all genetics. Well, genetics and not being a crack addict.
