    Stitch, I think I've figured it out.

    Stop posting extreme close-ups. They don't tell the whole story at all.

    I 100% agree. Those closeups make it much more difficult to appreciate the outfit. And we don't have to look at your neck hair.

    well, im glad to try. however, i dont always get a full pic i am happy with, they are much harder. and, i thought the idea of the thread was just chest shots.

    either way, if peeps are cool with it, im down with putting full shots when i post in here, provided i have one i am satisfied with.

    thanks for the suggestion, gents.

    Getting a gray suit in non-worsted wool made. Are patch pockets on a suit in good taste, or should they be reserved for odd jackets only?

    Also, Stitchy, that fit is very slimming. If I could thumb you I'd thumb you good for that picture (unfortunately, I've thumbed too many people today).

    Claghorn, patch pockets are OK on a non-city suit, I'd say go for it. Just keep in mind you shouldn't wear that suit with city accesories, unless you decide to ditch the patch pockets. Also, what's it gonna be? Tweed? Flannel? If tweed, city accesories would be a no-no even with flapped/besom pockets...

    Alright...about to really n00b up this thread....but...what exactly are city accessories? I know what sorts of ties/shirts are too formal for odd jackets now...but this city stuff is new to me.

    Probably flannel. I'm planning on going to a new tailor (Spolverino); he's the president of the ...I don't know how to translate it...but sort of like the tailor's guild of Korea, so I'm assuming he has a healthy selection of fabrics.
