    Thanks! I actually agree about the lapels, I wanted it wider. =[ I really loved the fabric when I first saw it but only now realize how busy it is. Still love it though. I think a wider and darker tie would be better too with the jacket, but it could be that I just changed the lightbulbs and everything is looking particularly florescent.

    Iso, have you just tucked one of your pockets or does that jacket have one besom and one flap pocket?

    Ooops my bad.

    I always forget something before I get the photos taken.

    What I really mean is that it's intentional. Sprezz I believe they call it.

    Very nice ensemble. Wish I had a nice grey suit like that.

    I'm a big fan of the combination. Sleeves are a bit long.

    Are you standing like this on purpose (I assume you are because of the emoji)? With a baller outfit like that, I'd stand up straight with my jacket buttoned.

    There's literally nothing not superb in this fit. I would like to own all of it, please. -- Here's my return to the office. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Thank you very much! Yeah, the sleeves were giving me some problems today!

    And you know, I tend to be a bit slouchey. For some reason or another, Robo-Poses never allow the jacket to drape well on me ha!

    Strong beginning to 2015, gents. SeamesterLux, that's impeccable and awesome; Isolation, best fit of yours in a while; Newcomer, great stuff but why you skimping on the tie?; KW, sweet!; GMMcL, love the tie color but it might be a touch too skinny.

    Here's my first day back at the office. It's -6 Fahrenheit outside, so bad indoor lighting is unfortunately all I've got. SF affiliates: Henry Carter rust grenadine tie and Drake's square from NMWA courtesy of my lovely and generous sweetheart.

    Moss - Not egregiously tight, but a bit too slim I think.

    Seamaster - Perfect. And damn that is a great suit.

    Newc - Nice casual look.

    GMM - I think you need more contrast between pants and jacket, otherwise nice.

    heldentenor - I think that shirt is not really best with a tie, and maybe not even with a jacket. Ymmv there, but I think its not working with that SC either way. Not sold on the PS either. Jacket fits nicely though, and the pants are good with it.

    Nice @heldentenor! I like the combination on the top block.

    And no tie, unfortunately, because it would be too much for my biz cas office! Sad, I know.
