    You tell me...you can see the difference in the pics, yes? Clean lines at the shoulder in many of the pics in this thread versus yours above (and versus those in the SS coats). It might be the pose. If it's clean in general, then ignore the pics and criticisms of it.

    There was a post some time back in some thread of two men from the back where one had horrible wrinkles and the other had a really clean back. People jumped all over it until a tailor pointed out that, of course, you live in a coat, and it moves with you. A photo can capture even the best coat in an unflattering light (think of the most beautiful actress you know, and I'm sure you can find a horrible pic). So, it could be the angle or pose, but only you would be able to tell us.

    This is the same suit. It's my stance that is creating the shoulder problem.
    But a lesson well learned.

    @Claghorn
    I was looking at your WAYWRN (the two above) and wished that I can pull off something like that then I realized that I canNOT wear khakis. [​IMG]

    Good news. I don't wear khakis. That's tropical wool from Howard Yount.

    This thread has replaced WAYWT as my go-to-thread when entering the site. Don't even check the latter anymore.

    Not one at a time. And please don't give thumbs to people who straight up ask for thumbs.

    What was once a sober, thoughtful endeavor has become a breeding ground for all manner of tomfoolery and frantic hand-waving ("oh oh, pick me, pick me!!"). Tch tch.

    Thumbs giving is way too liberal anyways without the asking ...

    I'm very surprised some of the stuff in this thread got 20.

    I like the idea of a 30+ thumbs up.
    Let me know if anyone wants my stuff to come down. I will do it to keep the integrity of this nice exclusive thread. Maybe there was a reason why mine was left off the batch.
