    I dig the shirt and belt...a lot. I'm not feeling the suede with this fit, knowing you have a lot of cool casual leather laying about that would work a little bit better (for my tastes). Love that shirt brudduh.

    I'm sorry but I disagree... Jack Purcells can fit anyone. And I think it looks really good on clapeyron

    Thanks...was gonna go with my #4 Atoms, but with the 80 degree temps they were predicting I figured I'd get some suede in while it was warm.

    You're never too old for JPs.

    Great look. Tats are cool too. Never been brave enough to do any.

    Thx. Less to do with bravery and more to do with youth, stupidity and idleness.

    If you're talking about button-up shirts (assuming you are), don't dart the shirts. If the arm holes are too low and the body is too big, have your tailor open up the seem that runs along the side and under the arm, and reduce the amount of fabric there. This will slim the sleeve, raise the arm-hole, and slim the body.

    You get things tailored. Don't buy brands that are opposite to your body type. Different aesthetics have different brands with slightly different sizing to choose from.


    Those shoes... bad idea. Shirt would look better tucked. And again, different shoes, even if you were younger, with those jeans.
