Very Nice! As we say in these parts...Let em know!
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.
Color best represented in top pic
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.
Short hair: the unspoken but tacitly acknowledged groupthink of SF.
i only wish i had hair like fred.
not sure what you mean by collar lowered, and there is no way in hell i am getting rid of the MOP buttons. spreezy breezy!
Thanks Fuuma I will try that next time I wear the suit.
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.
What's the fabric on the suit? fresco?
thanks, its actually a SC, by isaia.
im not a fabric connoisseur, so i kinda have no idea. i always called that kind of fabric, crepe. no idea if that is correct. one of the many experts here is welcome to fill in. sorry i was of no help.
