    @cakv you'll get no argument from me regarding from whom my children get their looks. Shoes are AE Mora.

    @Maximus Rex the bride's mother wanted morning dress, but the groom refused because he didn't want to wear a top hat. My wife is related to the groom.

    One of my least Claggish fits (and another shirt, actually the twin from a few days ago, whose sleeves are too short, though at this point in the day, they've been somewhat revealed as the linen in the jacket has caused the jacket sleeves to shorten, via wrinkling, with wear).

    Awesome jacket and fit - who is the maker? What kind of fabric is it?

    Apparently there is some structure ('minimal padding'), but I think it's the pressed open seam at the sleevehead that's key here.

    Yeah, you're probably right, though that horizontal-like line may be caused by the sleevehead, see above.

    BTW, that blue suit you posted recently (yesterday?) is absolutely spot on. Unlike all the big name Italian and English bespoke tailors, I have yet to see anything by @Despos that I didn't like. There are many examples here on SF, even from very famous tailors commisioned by very experienced members, whose bespoke projects have had disappointing results. But it seems Chris Despos always delivers. If only Chicago weren't so far away from Jakarta (I doubt one can get much further on this globe...)

    @SeaJen that wedding budget is... decadent.

    Help me here. What are we looking at? The slope of the shoulders? The shoulder expression?

    It's a mannequin, you know.
