    The ladies love a good iphone and candle.

    *perhaps the act of wearing a suit in his parts is peacock-ing ?

    I truly appreciate how well you folks have taken to my mohair suit. I even like the Ian Somerhalder gif

    My white iPhone isn't peacock enough?! It scream look at me I'm trendy/cool...

    Seriously, I am just partial to this thread since most of what I wear is too "wild" for the regular WAYWRN ...

    And in better light, the shirt is light turquoise, close to the color of the PS...

    Tweed, this suit looks to be a size too small in the chest — the lapels are bowing. I was guilty of this a lot when I was younger, in a tragic attempt to have a slim fit suit. You may consider sizing up.

    Hey Luftv the lapels are laying perfectly flat against my chest. I'll take a pic in this suit next week with a real camera haha so I can actually get some fit critiques with photos that don't look like theyre from a flip phone camera from 1998. Thanks for the feedback, I definitely like a close fit, maybe too close :). At 215 or so pounds not sure I can make anything look slim...

    While on the subject of body type, I'm partial to cut away and wide spread collars. What do you guys think is the best collar shape for 17"+ neck sizes. And yes I'm aware head shape has a lot to do with it.

    usually when it's too long... but its mostly for aesthetic reasons
