    That walking shot isn't doing you any favors Furo. Yeah yeah, "haters gonna hate" and all that, but it just looks weird. That being said, I did the SC, but are the sleeves too short, or are the shirt sleeves a bit long?

    The sleeves on the jacket are fine, it's the shirt sleeves being slightly too long

    Re: the sloppy bottoms..I've been really spoiled by being able to wear bespoke the past few years, but this year I was forced to go RTW stuff, that would be more durable for work, and I've been very lazy in getting stuff fixed properly. I will be getting these puppies hemmed with all the rest this summer...

    kgmeissier i like the pieces but the combination really shortens your torso and lengthens the leg. i think a longer vest would be better/a vest with more closed quarters.

    Neck on that sweater looks strange, NYR. Fit looks very good without it though.

    I have to agree with you on this. I often find that my torso looks short/legs look long in a lot of my outfits. While part of it is an aesthetic choice—I have an affinity for turn-of-the-century cuts—another part of it is a combination of my short torso and a lack of OTR pieces that compensate for that.

    If anyone can suggest pieces that can correct for this, I'm all ears.

    Thumbs-up: Thanks for the thumbs-up. I have to give props to a coworker of mine who does photography on the side. He took these shots. His steady hand and eye for composition results is great WAYWRN fodder. :)

    I like the look kg, but I'd lose the crease on the pants

    Bowties and vests aren't really my bag (my bag comprised mostly of various narcotics, a collection of bimbos and wads of unmarked dead presidents), but you do what you do pretty well. Plus, it is possible you have better hair than Patrick Booth.
