    I could count on the fingers of one hand the number of feedbacks I've had that have been flat wrong.

    Thanks again to everyone who takes the time and trouble to post pictures of themselves.

    Joining with those who post pictures of parts of themselves, rather than all of themselves, here's a picture of part of me, but for variety (compared to other's partial pictures) I am including a turkey sandwich in my picture.

    Brooks Brothers blue blazer, blue OCBD shirt, and repp tie and Squarextraordinaire pocket square. On the off chance that anyone want's to see the rest of me, I posted a picture of all of me (including white Brooks Brothers trousers and formerly white, now dirty, Florsheim white buc wingtips shoes) in the Friday Challenge "Dress Like A Fruit" thread.......

    ......and since someone always asks, my friend is having a veggie quiche. I know that real men don't eat quiche (or even know how to pronounce "quiche") but this is California and my friend is a girl, so I guess it's ok to have quiche showing in a picture in this group.

    That's a lovely fit and a lovely turkey sandwich, Roycru. And for the record, I think quiche is the world's most perfect food. Judge my manhood as you will.

    @GMMcL - Not that my opinion really matters being that I'm still a novice - I never really liked those shell loafers when spoo wore them either. Something about the leather makes it seem like a formal loafer, if that makes sense?

    Holden and Clag both look awesome in these recent fits but, especially considering all they both know about fits, I am still trying to understand, is it that showing shirt cuff doesn't matter with an SC as opposed to a suit, or are some folks of the opinion that shirt cuff should NOT be visible when wearing an SC? Of course I know I can do whatever I want but I'm trying to see if there is some classic reasoning behind a style choice I see many posters besides these two I referenced making. If this will derail things let me know and I will take the question elsewhere.

    I have (probably more accurately had, as I haven't actually laid eyes on it in years) that book and I thoroughly enjoyed its humor. But I always thought it was a little skewed. Real men eat whatever they feel like and don't give a damn about what others might think about that.

    Turning back to regular matters, I really like that tie with that shirt.

    @heldentenor - very nice fit but every time you post i can't help but notice that your jacket sleeves are too long.

    Just nitpicking, but I do believe that @heldentenor 's jacket sleeves are a little bit too long, and @Claghorn 's shirt sleeves do appear too short. At least, judging from the pics they posted.

    Quote:My favourite fit of yours so far as well. That jacket seems to fit really well, I feel some of your other ones accentuate your hips too much. Looks great here.

    Helden's fit - better than anything I could do. But the jacket cuffs could be 1/2 - 1" shorter.

    Thank you for that. Mr Caustic Man.
    I still feel I still have a way to go and need advices for both fit and colourcombo. Thus I'm open for suggestions.
