Oh why I'm so glad you asked. Please let me elaborate. For me posting style fits on SF is a waste simply because I have learnt all I needed from here and nobody can improve on my personal style further and I have no need to garner likes from the internet like some people. Real life opinions of my target audience is all that matter and I listen to their inputs rather than online strangers who do not understand what works in my locale and social life. For instance, just yesterday someone told me that having "shirring on the shoulder" makes me looked like I'm wearing a girl's jacket whereas I don't like it to begin with because imo it makes me looks older not to mention a passing fad like the pagoda shoulders. Just the total opposite of someone who dreams to be an Italian in Naples 50 years ago. Then there are deliberate cut choices such as shorter jackets to prevent the side bottoms from scraping nasty dirt from public benches and allow me to drive a car more comfortably. You failed to notice I have limited myself from posting on SF not only because Fok hellbanned me for my honesty so posting anything is difficult (like 3 submit clicks to submit 1 post) but also to only post things that I deem helpful to others.

Since you're new you may not noticed that the experienced SF vets have left or became silent readers so very few dare to make the effort to say it as is. There are people who dressed up so unusual imo even like pimps in WAYWT but I don't comment on them simply because it is their personal styles that may work wherever they're at. When I comment on your fit I stay within the boundary of CM unlike the offline notes I got on your pics from SF vets that are simply too brutal to post here. Note that I don't repost them to gain some weight of my position. Please comment like the way you're dressed up.

Now please reply with "I appreciate your perspective in this thread and other threads as you offer a contrary point of view to most online participants." With a smile or a smirk if you can't.

What critique? Imo it was a simple passing comment on jacket length which may help the owner to reconsider his standard cut. I didn't know it was a pre-composed IG worthy perfect photo.
Comment, critique whatever.

Please roast my fits. I have quite thick skin.

You deliberately didn't focus on the shirt and trousers ;)
Trousers (I'm assuming cotton) would certainly look better after an ironing. I'm on the fence as to whether they are incongruous with the jacket and shoes. Shirt sleeves a touch too long, as well.

Yep. Spot on. End of working day will do that to trousers. As for the shirt, I’m too lazy to give a crap about shortening them lol 😂 My days of being that into minutiae are over... ah well.

My thoughts on the jacket? The contemporary model fits me to a tee. Only needed to shorten the jacket sleeves and voila... all done. Not stupidly tight around the waist either. Just enough suppression. But not too much.

Any pictures of that dinner jacket coming soon?
I'm heading off to work right now, but I'll throw a few up in the evening when I'm back. Sorry about that, totally slipped my mind since I haven't worn anything fancy since March haha

Wanted to share a real life picture of the new corduroy shirts. This is the royal blue, 15.5 contemporary, straight out of the box. I'm 5'10', 167 lbs. I take a 34 sleeve and the 15.5 comes with 35 sleeves. I'm going to try to shrink this a little in the laundry to get it just right.

Colour is true to the website pictures. I was a little surprised how light the corduroy fabric is; I also bought an oxford cloth shirt and I'd say the oxford feels thicker. I would have enjoyed a more hefty, rugged corduroy but am still glad I grabbed this at full price. Don't have anything else like it.

thanks for sharing these pics. IMO it looks great on you. which worries me a little because i'm 185lbs/5'11" and also ordered the same shirt in the same size. but i've tried a 16 contemporary on me in another S&M model and it was too big, and the measurements on the site for the 15.5 look right for me, so hopefully it works out in the chest and and stomach. i'm a 33" arm so i already know they will be too long, which is fine, i have to have the arms shortened on pretty much every sportshirt i purchase anyway.
