    Baron's back! Woohoo! I always like your fits, this one's no exception. Casual and laid back, but not sloppy.

    You live in Southern California. A pinstriped suit is pushing it Monday-Friday, hardly appropriate for Sunday brunch...or are you a Bible Thumper?

    Andrew,

    You mean this one, right?

    [​IMG]

    I think that is my best fitting suit. It's a bit surprising, because it is Brioni, and one would think that the shoulder structure would be incompatible with my shoulders but that doesn't appear to be the case.


    Hmm, it is a nice fit, but I was remembering a Barbera for some reason. If you don't have a striped Barbera I must be remembering this one.

    Don't take this the wrong way SoCal (or maybe it's a compliment? who knows) but you look older than 23.

    Such is the case when I'm scruffy and don't have my little boy comb over.

    I think the fuller cut jeans work better with a more casual outfit, like this one. I don't like them so much with sportcoats. Vintage Western olive gingham shirt Vintage Leather jacket SC Okinawas Zara boots [​IMG] I'll probably hem the Canes soon.

    You need a larger size in that jacket.

    #1 Sleeves are too short

    #2 The jacket is too tight in the mid-section. It seems to be squeezing your inards.

    #3 Armholes are too high or tight. I bet you can't raise your hands more than 60 degrees in that jacket.

    #4 +1 on the Jeans need hemming, and they are too wide of a cut to be worn with such a small jacket.

    Say if you were to wear that jacket again, id suggest you leave all the buttons open to reveal more of a relaxed look. This jacket doesn't work for me when worn like that^^.

    Disagree. With your build, a fuller cut jean is going to be your best friend. Your slim jeans are only going to do one thing - make your body look like a mushroom. The ones you wore a couple pages back (the uniqlos?) really looked great on you, they create a lot more balance to your silhouettte.

    hmm i would think that given the higher arm hole cut, that he wouldnt have much problem raising his arms.

    I believe we've gone over this before...
    Actually it's not very tight at all. There's a term for the visual effect of the jacket tapering near the waist, rather than being boxy. It's called waist suppression. Perhaps you've heard of it? As far as the arms go, I have pretty much full mobility while wearing the jacket, and the armholes aren't tight whatsoever.
    I agree with the fact that the jeans need to be hemmed. I'm sorry you feel the jacket doesn't work for you, good thing its my jacket and not yours, then.

    I guess we'll have to agree to disagree then. I feel that a fuller cut (at least until mid-calf) appears sloppy. I'm not opposed to bootcuts that start at mid-calf like the 5EP LDB, and potentially the BOLA.

    I think there's a seemingly large disconnect between how I appear in pictures and how I do in real life. I'm not 5'11" 250 or something like that, which would appear to be extremely disproportionate. While my drop is somewhat larger than the norm, 6'1 220ish isn't really all that big, at least not in the US.

    drizzt,
    the only thing I would object too is that the jacket has a bit too short sleeves (but as a pretty slim but broad shouldered guy myself, I know how common too short sleeves are on clothes that otherwise fit fine).
    The jeans looks great, and definitly doesnt need to be hemmed. A small cuff could be nice though.
