    More blue suit - and a tie you can spill your coffee on and no one will know.

    I placed it and didn't like it. Maybe it was cause I was late and didn't pay attention. Oh well!

    Forgive the photo quality. Still trying to figure out a new camera and a new apartment.

    Thank you so much for all the thumbs on my linen suit last Friday. I'm really quite taken aback. Today:

    Like the roll of those lapels. They are really nice.

    I'll second what the fine gentlemen have said before me, @jvs60; don't touch the pants, wider lapels, no contrast stitching button holes, a little more room in the chest.

    Also, the chest pocket seems somewhat misplaced. It should be a little more centered, no? Or maybe it's the camera angle. And I think you could have a little more space between the buttons (3x2) vertically and horizontally, especially for your frame. They look to compact as it is now.

    Not bad for online MTM though, given your frame. I like the balance between the trousers (width and length wise) and the top half. I'd stick with those proportions. Fits you nicely.

    Thanks, the buttons do look compact to me. For a jacket this size there is more than enough room to spread the buttons more. I'll be sure to let them know on the next one. the lapel is 3.75" i think, how wide should they be for my size?

    Forgive the crappy 'shopping, but I think lapels about this wide and breast pocket roughly where the black line is.
