    One of the funniest lines ever posted here.
    This is nice, betel, but I think you might benefit from softer shoulders.

    I don't think I've seen you in anything this good before Heldo - love the shirt (make?) love the tie. Square doesn't gel IMO - a little too casual and colorful) but otherwise really terrific.


    Always enjoy seeing your posts MrC- great taste




    @Betelgeuse great fit- what r those trews? I love to see shades of brown in fits

    Thanks--shirt is New England Shirt Company for a local menswear store. I thought about white linen but the jacket has some tweed flecks in it, so I had reservations about going in that direction. Might be the second time this week (the other being Tuesday) where no square would have been the best option.

    HT I didn't see those flecks- maybe same square then with a solid tie. It's the square and tie that don't work together IMO

    Thanks, I need to see if some tailor could do some work with the shoulders of this jacket.



    Thanks Pliny, pants are MTM from a tailor I know from around here. :)

    Your tailor should be complimented. For me, the fit of your trousers is consistently among the very best here in this thread.

    I couldn't agree more re: the jacket and tie. Lovely on their own and they make a great pair.

    Love that fit, Mossrocks; you look like you could be campaigning for MP from Argyll.

    Those are the Lands' End pants, right? Most people on that website complained that they were very slim, is that how they arrived or did you tailor them down even closer?

    Damned near pB-esque. (I don't think he'd go for that jazzy shirt fabric... :D )

    Also, pics are too small. Quoted so we can actually see the textures:

    Not a fan of your blackwatch trousers, but this pic needs to be quoted unspoilered. Fantastic!

    @Pliny superb, pB-esque indeed!

    @Betelgeuse , do I want to know what your tailor charges, or will I get a heart attack?
