    It is lovely, but I am wondering if the trousers are just a touch short for their volume (and for this kind of suit).

    anybody care to explain why the suede shoes look off here? Maybe I'm just out of practice.

    Are u American? Brothel creepers have a dodgy history there. Maybe it's a throw back judgement.

    Personally I like them here.

    Yes. Something about the contrast of the smooth fabric finish and the suede texture are off putting to me. I mean it's not "bad" just not great. Small issue either way.

    Top says summer and the shoes say fall. Possibly just shirt and tie say summer...

    I didn't get a chance to get a full-body shot. Sorry, Noodles.

    I hate the bottom photo because the cuff is hidden. To be fair, the sleeves need to be lengthened a bit more. There was a bit of a mix-up in the commission.

    Damn, Australia has locked down MC almost as hard as they used to lock down transported prisoners. Nabilmust et al, great fits.

    @Nabilmust, would you tell me a bit more about the shoulder construction on your jacket? Not sure I've ever seen one built quite like yours.
