    Call me crazy, but it sounded like he was pointing out a difference of opinion, one I happen to share. Admittedly, it could be the angle/poss in the first pic, but it LOOKS mighty tight, and quite short in the sleeves.

    In regards to those who write off your opinion based upon your lack of posts, you'll have to blame those who came before you.

    You're crazy.... there [​IMG]

    And this is just an internet forum. I have just as much fun tearing people down as they presumably do attempting to be witty and insulting.

    Incidentally, my primary gripe is that members have been responding to me mostly with ad hominem attacks, simple statements of oninion without reason, or simply bizarre one liners. I appreciate that you gave reasons for your opinion. So, points in my book.

    I was reading through your post history, and it seems like you might have some intriguing points of view to share at times, but everything is lost in the delivery because you come across as a belligerent asshole and/or someone with an autism spectrum disorder. Believe it or not, emphasizing words in all caps is considered crude and will alienate you. Try using the underline or italics functions. Ending your posts with "You are dismissed" and "That is all" will also fail to amuse anyone.

    In order to share your unique and original ideas, refer to the general structure and formatting of messages and emulate that. Like the suit as a system of rules, you'll find it's easier to get your unique concept across if the way you present it is fairly normal, with experimentation within that rubric.

    The suit in question does not pass muster because of the shredded handkerchief and faux wood iPhone case.

    Hm, It seems that you too might have some intriguing points of view to share, unfortunately, by calling me a belligerent asshole and someone who may possibly have an autism spectrum disorder, you ironically come across as a belligerent asshole or someone with an autism spectrum disorder. Insulting someone you don't know in this manner is very crude and will definitely alienate you.

    Hypocrite. I sincerely hope you detect the irony.

    Also, you may want to read the comments that others have made regarding my opinions. You will find that I do not insult anyone that has not done so to me first. Am I snarky? Sure. Why not. Adds to the fun. But I also write at length the reasons for my views, something which most of you seem to not do. For example, you just spent 2 paragraphs insulting me and only ONE on the outfit in question. Unfortunately typical around here.

    I did not consider the iPhone case to be part of the outfit. And I lauded the choice of the handkerchief and gave a REASON why I did so.

    Sigh* your one sentence statement regarding the outfit is a statement of opinion. No reason, no supporting statements. Utterly meaningless. We might as well argue about our favorite colors.

    So, Mr. Psychologist (which you must be, and one of the greatest ones at that, since you have the uncanny ability to diagnose severe disorders via reading internet posts), care to try again?

    YOU are dismissed.

    I'm hoping it sticks around for a bit. The insights being shared there are pretty top notch.

    Great to see these pics of your suit 'in the wild' Peter, and for those admirers who are unaware of its provenance you are encouraged to browse the 'East Sicily Tailors' thread which tells the back story.

    As mentioned on that thread I recently acquired a low budget RTW version of your tobacco summer suit. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Some details and alternative pics - full story on the blog ...

    New summer suit. A lot of dark brown suits here lately.

    Raffaele Caruso Sartoria Parma in a super lightweight Loro Piana Zeelander fabric.
    Worn with Berg&Berg cotton shirt, Drake's of London tie and cordovan penny loafers from C&J.

    Bonus lifestyle picture with my two boys.

    Now. Back to vacation mode.

    All the best

    Andreas

    I just began my venture in to men's style in the last year or so. I am still in the early learning stages! Advice, constructive feedback, critique, etc. totally welcome!

    I like something because (fill in the blank) is still an opinion, no matter how many words and/or sentences it comprises. Outside of a general and rather vague accepted rubric, all we're doing here is arguing and offering our opinions.

    In any event, this dynamic has become mind numbingly monotonous in the span of 4 total posts. I hope we can just get back to seeing pictures of outfits, and kill this juvenile sniping.

    Speaking of, great stuff @alden (not sure if tagging works on a cell), really like that suit.

    Nice and simple outfit. I'd prefer the pants be higher rise, or the button stance on the jacket be lower, but, all in all, a cool look.

    Disclaimer: I'm exceedingly comfortable with the rise of my pants being at/above my navel, so my perspective skews a bit to the extreme side.

    I heartily agree sir!

    Now, I know that you are not hypocrite. This couldn't possibly be the case. So I KNOW that you are going to also address the person who called me autistic and a belligerent "a--hole"... Right?

    Because God forbid you are a hypocrite.

    I'm waiting.

    Name calling doesn't bother me, so you both can be beligerrent autistic assholes for all I care. It's just the incessant back and forth that I find tiresome, which is encompassed by "this juvenile sniping."

    Though you seem more eager to indulge in it, I wasn't calling you out more than I was anyone else. It's a bore no matter who's providing the material.

    Edit: while i love arguing, I'm going to bow out of this dance, so don't be offended if you receive no response...ill be curious to see if you stick around if others take a similar approach.

    The jacket and trousers are contrasting highly with one another, but the shirt is not and so looks out of place. I've never been a big fan of polo shirts with blazers but a lot of people do it. In this case you could have gone very saturated with the polo or lighter. The jacket seems to have some fit issue at the shoulder and the sleeve.

    Agreed. A button-down long sleeve also shows that the jacket sleeve length is correct. Show a little linen as the saying goes. Very nice look I think, though.

    Yeah, generally speaking he's heading in the right direction.
