    it's homemade, quasi, and the fit is good. main reason to keep your favourite denim, imo. you agree?

    : ) No, but ordered them like that. Would be nice to draw my own though, come to think of it...

    Kap, the first picture is pretty good -- the pocket square isn't the best thing ever, but it's not awful. The jeans are a pretty cool wash, and they fit pretty well.

    Those shoes however, should be buried. They are calamitous -- the last shape and awful bicycle toe stitching in particular, are the most heinous components.
    At first glance, they seemed inoffensive. Then I glanced a second time and I wanted to cry.

    Keep on truckin' though. You're usually pretty decent.

    The second fit is much better than the first, but I still feel like the pants would benefit from a taper.

    In the first fit, I don't like the blazer at all. I feel like it doesn't have much of a shape and the gorge is way too high. The shirt is nice, but I don't care for the shoes at all.

    Wearing my "Zissou" belt for the first time.

    The belt will darken over time and I think I might opt for "no belt" right now, until it matches the colour of my Grensons a little more, what do you think?

    Shirt looks too tight.... pulling at almost every button and in the armpit area

    This is how I like my shirts. There's no pull whatsoever on the mop buttons and both standing and seated there's two inches of extra fabric at chest and waist level. But that's just my opinion.

    I can see however, how it might look like the shirt being too tight because of the wind in the first picture. I tend to (over)adjust the shirt and the GIG line before I take pictures, too.

    Criticism welcome:

    Put your arms down when you take the first two pictures. Looks insanely unnatural. Will probably show pulling.

    Do people notice that I'm on paid vacation for the entire month of April? I can take all the fit pics you want. Want me to juggle two canteloupes and a chainsaw? There might be some pulling. Some pulling it off.

    In all honesty, these two pictures look like before-and-after diet pics. I'm not sure why that is, because the shirt looks perfect in the second pic.

    And since you asked...

    I agree that this would look better. Now you've got me thinking...

    Haven't thrown a pic into this thread for a while, so here's one. Not full-on casual as I had to do some light work today, but it transitioned into casual wear later on...
