    try to focus less on the thumbs and more on looking at the fit and seeing what can be improved. :)

    You're right. Get better fitting suits and some nice shoes. That should up the game a bit.

    also, try a different pose. i dont think the straight, head on, legs slights spread, pose, is the best for you. try with your legs closer together and straighter, more I I and less / \.

    that will make the pants drape nicer, and if you stand slightly angled towards the camera, gently leading with a shoulder, it also usually makes for a better pic imo.

    I don't keep track of "thumbs" so I am always surprised to find myself in this thread. Thanks for the love, bros.

    Murl, if I were you I shouldn't be surprised anymore. Expect it man :slayer:

    @Rudals I'd look at the curated thread again. For me, and I think I said it there sorry, that you can see personality/character shine through the clothes. You can instinctively see who enjoys wearing good stuff, it's not forced but wholly natural.

    I see that in your posts when you were dining out with your wife, remember?

    Look at those again, I can remember lots of us complimenting you on them.

    You were very at ease and that burst through the excellent fit :slayer:

    Very good advice, Mr. Cleaver!
    People say I do smile a lot more now and I look different since meeting my wife. I guess it is a good thing.
    But the best thing to come out of this is...that I have a good photographer now LOL.
    I understand what you mean when you say that "you can see personality/character shine through the clothes" because you definitely are one of them.
    I think I am just too focused on what people will say rather than just enjoying wearing my stuff. How foolish of me.

    This really is a great batch, lots of winning here. I think Eliod and Pingson may be my two favorite current posters in terms of stuff to emulate. And that linen(?) tie in the 16th pic is awesome - if anyone knows the details I think that would make for a great opening weekend of summer purchase!

    Just so we're all clear: If you're going to abbreviate EliodA, it should be Elio, as in Elio de Angelis.

    This. Though I'm already used to Eliod too, it doesn't really matter that much. @jssdc, thank you very much for the kind words. :)
