    Spoo - peep the next-level pattern matching where the jacket hem meets the pants.

    Mind blown.

    I recall it being discussed here before, plus the last buttonhole, plus the FU cloth, plus the general look. I might be wrong but I dont think I am ...

    plus the last buttonhole

    All good indications, but he is, AFAIK, the only one who did the last buttonhhole larger than the others. Def TF

    Great suit, very "industry look" IMO. Spoo I am surprised you don't think he is too matchy matchy based upon your recent statements. He is very well coordinated for a strong plaid pattern. It makes so much more impact that to try and use too many more elements and colors.

    What statements do you mean? I think this is perfect as it is. You dont want to screw around with too much other stuff with a plaid that big.

    Im salivating over this thing. Damn, I wish I never saw this pic.

    That suit is what inspired me to buy that DB windowpane suit I just sold.

    I am a fan of teh grey....all shades.

    Mike

    You *really* like windowpanes don't you? Some of the suits, imo, could be a bit more tailored.. unless you like them with some breathing room.

    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.
    I'm not a fan of DB suits on small guys.

    Thanks G - I get what you are saying, and sure I think that can work. However, ...... I would have really felt matchy matchy.


    As it stood, I felt too matchy that day as it was.
