    Remember, kids: a pile of money only buys you tasteful things if you had good taste to begin with.

    Good fit. Only need a little to shorten the sleeves and trouser legs. Possible to remove a couple of inches at the waist.

    But the color I do not like - too small and noticeable stripes. This costume is too conspicuous for frequent wear.

    If this was a chalk stripe slightly wider and not so common (stripes on the step increase of 2.5 times) - then it would be better. Would have made bank retro-style high-level (but then again - taking into account the color of the suit has a very light shade - that option was obviously not every day)

    Or - the strip would be barely noticeable - almost visible - then it would be almost monochromatic version suit with visual melange. Then, too, could buy it.
    But this suit - in spite of the good form - is not too good color and stripes.

    I would be very cautious to buy it with. You can wear it rarely ...

    Temperature dipped down, so debut of some new flannel and cashmere. I see what all of the fuss was about with Rota trousers. I now want to discard about five pairs of grey trousers that will never make me as happy as these do.

    Tie is Panta cashmere from Ed's new "denim cashmere" line. Substantial, really soft, yet ties a pretty good knot. I love it.

    I think - if a little decrease in waist jacket (and not on the side seam (so are likely to be too pull the front shelves jacket) - and on the back seam (as is likely to be much better)) and just take in the sleeves from the elbow to the bottom (cone ) - that would be great.

    Agreed, Victor--a little more shape in the waist would give this jacket more pleasing lines.

    I think Tirailleur unlocked a secret combo (vivid green + rich orange) that is fortuitously snazzy. The photo might be a bit oversaturated, too? Not sure, but I hope it looks as rich in real life.

    I think this is the suit, and it only costs $711.

    Easter is coming early. Had to go to work, so figured, why not... Lot easier to take fit pics in the new place, whoop!

    I very much appreciate this thread - I have learned a tremendous amount and truly respect the knowledge and application of that knowledge to everyday style that many of the regulars exhibit. I am totally happy to lurk here and not post, although I know I would improve tremendously more if I did post.

    If you all are truly open to honest feedback from someone that has attempted to post, here it is. This forum is not particularly open to new posters, based on what I have seen and my own experience. Specifically, almost all new posters' photos are going to be of the selfe-bathroom-mirror variety, which almost always leads to immediate general, not specific and constructive, criticism. Almost all new posters don't own a digital SLR, a tripod, nor do they have a photographer on call every morning, so maybe that precludes us. Beyond that, for new folks, the feedback needs to be very specific and simple in order to be helpful. I really hate to cite my own experience b/c then it just sounds like I am some bitter troll, but I posted two fits in one post, got no response, re-posted the post as a second attempt and got one comment. My note in the post was I know I need help on my PS/tie game and I err on the side of too match-matchy, the comment i got was "that tie doesn't belong within a hundred yard of that PS". That is likely true, and I know the poster thought he was funny, but that doesn't help me improve or motivate me to continue to post. I respectfully followed up, thanked him for taking the time to post, and asked specifically why (colors, texture), and got no response. I get the whole haze the new guy thing and that you gotta have tough skin. I promise, I have been through plenty of hazing and have alligator hide. Some new posters don't truly want to hear the criticism, and so there will be some attrition, but for those who have thick skin, the question is whether it is a good return on their invested time to post. Maybe we should try posting elsewhere, is there another thread where newbies should post and you all can just make this the forum for the veteran major leaguers?

    Again, I am grateful for this thread and what I have learned, happy Easter / Passover to you all.

    Lurk -> imitate -> post -> be ridiculed -> re-lurk -> imitate, compare, analyze, contrast -> post -> collect a few thumbs -> re-lurk, etc.

    Time horizon required: several years.
    Budget required: infinite

    I don't think it's so much hazing as it is that no one in their right mind has time to give hands-on, step by step pointers to someone unless they are billing by the hour.* There is ample photographic evidence that can be used to triangulate. If you get a "ten foot pole" reaction, you haven't studied the tablets enough. Also, ten foot pole reaction is the fastest remedy.

    i see you have not fared much better with this attempt. Allow me to offer this suggestion: http://www.styleforum.net/t/375309/...roving-a-business-wardrobe/17205#post_7607880. You may find you get a better and more helpful response there.
