    Held, better. Now stack up some books on that table and get the camera at chest level.

    AS, technically I think a square with more contrast would improve the fit, but rules are made to be broken, and for a summer look I really like what you've done, square included.

    Thanks! The pockets are jetted.

    That makes a lot of sense. I had dotted knits on my "list" for a while, for odd jackets, but given that a PoW check suit or two will be swinging into my closet this fall, I may have to pick one up.

    I really like PoW with repps, too.

    Thanks. With my build (thin with broad, bony shoulders, I'm not a V, I'm a T), natural shoulders are what makes most sense. The wide lapels I just like; wait till this one gets finished. :D

    Really wouldn't have thought that you have a problem with too long ties; you look really tall, I would have thought you had problems with too short ties. What about a double FIH?


    Great, now you've awoken the disobedient child in me.

    Dressing down gets boring quickly - I've reverted to a suit for today.

    @upr_crust: good fit, but I'm not a fan of the striped tie with such a formal (peak lapel, one button) suit. Burgundy printed would have been my choice, or burgundy grenadine. Your shoe selection narrows the tie selection somewhat, if it had been a very dark brown, a brown tie would have been awesome.

    @Sander with your body shape described as a T, do you find it difficult to find shirts that fit you off the rack? Or do you go the MTM route?
