    that's TC (Houston), 02/20/2009. check old WAYW pics... I'll guess Zegna.


    ORLY? PM me the ones and I'll remove them. There's a couple taht look questionable (spoo, jphardy) but it could be my monitor.


    To my eye, Spoo, JP and the Yfyf ones.

    This is one of a small handful of photos that makes me want a gray suit. I also want a small waist like his to go with it. The suit may be an easier goal.

    Personally I think this thread beats the brown and navy one since grey really is the most verstile IMO...

    Wow, all three of these are so damn sharp, this thread definitely has me convinced I need a light gray suit. Can't wait for springtime shopping.

    ... If this is too much of an overload just let me know...

    Complete overkill; well done!

    As much as people say grey is versatile (and I believe it should be a staple) it appears that most of the pics posted so far use white shirts, moreso than in the Praise of Blue/Brown threads.

    Just my unscientific opinion

    But props to the great idea for these threads and the inspirational pics within them!

    Well, I appreciate the kind words, but that does not look good to me (even ignoring the chubbiness). LOL

    I second that. This and the navy thread are ideal stopping points if you are about ready to buy a suit. Great examples of cut, features, color shades, etc.

    Nice one, NORE. Is that the Garrison? The lapels aren't for the weak, but it fits [​IMG]. One of my favorite suits.

    Yup. Problem is I already own a Garrison in 44 and this one's a 46. Would take some work but I lerve those rust stripes! Price is decent too at 1/3 retail.
