    There you go, weird bunching up the right sleeve:

    That's a pretty nice top, but what the hell's going on with the dammit sleeve?

    I guess it got stuck on the top of the french cuff, the arms are pretty narrow. [​IMG] It's just for this pic, it rests nicely otherwise. !luc

    I'd shorten the sleeves just a tad, and what with pairing it with velvet pants?

    I wasn't wearing the same top, I just put on the coat to take a pic. I think it looks quite right with velvet though, especially in the sun.
    For the brand concious, the coat is carruso, the pants are YSL RG, the tie is barba, the shirt is some local french MTM and the shoes are helmut lang.
