    Oh yeah. Absolutely with you. Just threw that on for the pic. Peak lapels and spread collar (together) are getting dangerously close to #menswear territory.

    Thanks for the thoughts fellas

Considering getting the white pair, but I don't know where I would wear them.

      Any thoughts? I usually wear a 40L in most brands. This is a 40 and I think the sleeves may be a touch too long.
      Looking good. I was at my local JCP today but they didn't have the pants in my size.

        I think it looks good and for $60 I would keep it for summer and spring events.

        In my opinion, the jacket it a bit short as it goes only up to your wrist and I bet it keeps your behind exposed. I don't think it makes it unwearable but it is a modern look. The fit overall is good but I am quite the novice.

          I agree it is on the short side... I am also not crazy about the lapels (hence why I wasn't sure about keeping it) but I think for $40 for the jacket I could live with it. Don't know if it will see much action as a suit. I am a big fan of the pants though.

            My Omega 2234 came in. I put it on my new Hirsch strap and I think the combo looks great.

                    If someone made a ltd edition ball cozy out of shell cordovan it would sell out. I like shell but geez

                      [MENTION=3421]Vicious49[/MENTION]: looks aggressive and sporty, I like it. [MENTION=6367]fey[/MENTION]: wow. Those are practically perfect for casual wear, great combination of color, sole, and shape. What was the price on these? I know Viberg is already a very pricey brand.

                        Weren't they something like $1100? I think only 20 pairs were available

                          Yea they were 1100. Viberg said there are less than 20 being made, and it definitely was an event trying to get in on the preorder today

                            Picked up the Stafford linen/cotton blazer from JCP this weekend. Fit is pretty spot on. Hard to beat for 50 bucks.

                                [MENTION=6367]fey[/MENTION], those boots are sweet.

                                my recent purchases:
                                Brooks Brothers Linen herringbone trousers: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Fitzge...efault,pd.html
                                $103.60 on sale
                                Brooks Brothers Extra-slim fit dress shirt http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Supima...efault,pd.html
                                $46.00 on sale



                                Both the shirt and trousers feel nicely slim. I went with my usual shirt size. The linen pants were not as baggy as I thought they might be. I ordered a size 30 waist, but it feels snug, more like a 28 waist.
