    Awesome. I was on the fence, but that fit made me purchase this

    See, now I like this fit much better with knit tie rather than smooth silk. Must agree w/ Eliod re. shirt collar, though, not up to your usual high standards ( I think your shirt collars are typically among the best here).

    In real life, Gerry is a very, very well dressed chap - subtly but unmissably. Mind you, there's quite a few guys like that in Melbourne.

    That shirt just shouldn't work in this fit. And yet it does. Have you made a pact with the devil or something?

    Yep, definetly. Nowadays my looks are more shaped by feeling than by (technical) correctness. And there´s no claim anymore.
    The suit is still "under construction" and a lot of alternations should have to be done. Unfortunately, the pre-owner must have been a stupid dumbass, because he has thrown it into a washing machine. But the tie is pretty nice. My girlfriend found it in a thrift shop and gave it to me :D

    Labor Day = the first day of the semester for me. Hoping my bright pants conceal my grumpiness and malaise.

    My first day of school is tomorrow. Good luck. I think that tie is too boring for those pants.

    It's not my favorite shirt (from either my first or second round of MTM years ago), but It doesn't really bother me. It's worth noting that my unstructured jacket is not buttoned, and the lapels are falling away from the collar. With the jacket buttoned, the points don't tuck under, but they do touch.
