    You should switch to blue or patterned shirts; your look isn't sober enough to be minimal (too much details, patterns, texture). You obviously know what you're doing so it is just a matter of making the jump.

    Tie and pocket-square are too matchy-matchy. And get a haircut you damn hippie.

    Stitch, please get the collar lowered on your jacket, and consider darker horn buttons.

    I will try something less matchy matchy next time out. The hair stays. I like the dichotomy.

    Okay, you see those bumps in your jacket shoulders, near your neck? That means the neck is too high. You may be feeling a bit of pressure at the back of your neck, as well. The short of it is that you're standing a bit more upright than the jacket was tailored for (i.e., it was done to accommodate a bit of slouch or stoop), and a good tailor should be able to bring it down a bit.

    Don't mind me then, I'm just jealous that you still have yours.

    interesting, it could also just be that my rather thick OCBD was bunched up underneath. i noticed the bumps in the pic and smoothed out the shirt to better effect. i didnt realize what you were referring to.

    thanks!
