    Yeah, it's mainly shoulders back and chest from weight training but there's some belly fat as well which needs to go.

    Not sure if the jacket can be adjusted at all to accommodate so I'll need to check that.

    The cream square and black silk knit combo. Oddly enough, I usually pass over both of them for something better.

    That's a nice looking jacket, where is it from?

    I usually do not make negative comments about my outfits as not to prejudice the viewer, but I'm not crazy about this look today for many reasons. It is what I wore today nonetheless.

    O.K. I'll bite. What is it you don't like? The tie/square/socks matchy-ness? The white shirt?

    I thumbed it anyway out of sheer bloody-mindedness.

    Cheers,

    Ac

    Thanks. The shirt is pink not white. The green/navy of the bow tie is too matchy with the green/navy of the jacket. The watch strap and pocket square don't blend well with the rest of the fit in my opinion. The pink shirt, grey vest, and khaki seem to all blend together, but not in a good way. I think a different jacket would have been better. I'm not sure what though. It's always hard to go wrong with navy.

    Aas, that square doesn't work. Would have gone for suede shoes as well.

    I suspect yrr92 might have received more thumbs had he excluded 1st fit, fwiw. Almost looks like 2 different people (sorry, catching up on thread).

    @An Acute Style your fits are so avante garde and advanced that it's hard to even detect if anything is wrong.

    Agreed. I just got a pair of dark brown suede captoes back from the cobbler this week. I'll wear them on Thursday or Friday.
    Thanks, but I'm not sure if that's a good thing or bad thing. I like doing my own thing, but I don't want to be too far out there.

    Thanks! The jacket is bespoke, I can PM you the deets if you like.

    Much appreciated, Gerry. I will definitely take your suggestion under consideration.[​IMG]
