    ^Beautiful coat. Will be great for casual wear with denim too!

    I want to see someone in WAYWRN wearing that tie/PS.

    I wear anti-soporarific Duchamp ties in a couple of shots.

    That's a nice jacket, but I think the green and orange stripes on teh purple/blue-ish background (as seen on the pants) is even better. However, I am not sure it would be an easy jacket to pull off.

    Can you stop doing ticket pockets? They're bugging the heck out of me.
    That's what bugs you? Not the fact that he has recently made extensive use of the local Medieval Times to take his pictures?

    Here I am in motion, however, in the same cut:

    I like the clothes but I find the pants length a bit short for my tastes. Are you doing that to show the shoes better?

    Steed (Edwin DeBoise) bespoke suit in Lesser 11oz worsted (for those of you who care, this is a model without the front cut)

    Best looking Steed I've seen on you. I like.

    The cuffs are resting on the shoes already...you can see the tiniest bit of break on the trouser line on the left.

    Contrived? I'm unsure what you mean. It would be contrived for you, but since my habits are largely rooted in the American collegiate/Ivy style background, full breaking trousers would be rather (and literally) alien. There's got to be a bit of boyishness.

    I'll trot this out again: this old G. Bruce Boyer quotation from Eminently Suitable summarizes what I like best:

    "The English writer Arnold Bennett used to say that his tailor advised him that trousers should 'shiver' on the shoe but not break."

    Exactly.


    I love Boyer's books. It took me a while but I finally got all of them. I still think pants need a longer length but I'm 6'3" so the break probably helps me with visual cues.
