      • J.Shack-

        Let me preface by saying 1) you're a much braver man than I w/r/t fashion- you consistently push your envelope, and I respect that, and 2) since I never post pictures of myself, you're totally justified in using the TR "not the critic who counts" counter on me, but the DB suit thing just isn't working for me. To mine eye, it makes you look shorter and squatter than you are. That's a pretty solid tie, though. Might have to choke down the "JAB IS CRAP!!!1!" hivemind thing and take a look.

          I'd have to say this is similar to the ZCM picture thing the other day, looking back at the pictures it definitely does, but from a standing/side angle I feel like I look my normal height

          • I feel like this one is a better representation, I just didn't use it because of the low quality and dirty bathroom thing.

            • Fair enough- I'm still not sold on the DB look for guys our age, but I agree the second picture looks much less disproportionate than the first one.

              • [MENTION=12061]Jshackleford[/MENTION] sometimes you have to be careful with how you take pics lol. Just goes to show you that you[we] aren't going to always look great no matter what. I like the look BTW, definitely bold. I have been thinking about a DB jacket but I think I'll go with a four button navy blazer to start.

                  I really want want a navy DB blazer with good buttons, I think it would be a good fashion forward option to stand out a bit when you would normally wear things like that.

                    I've seen him in single-breasted. He didn't suddenly look shorter to me when I saw him in this DB. Looks good!

                      • @jshacklford, I like the suit. Proportions look ok to me. It would be nice to see more people go the double-breasted route, but I'm not confident enough to do that yet.

                            • ZCM (or any one who owns them)... I asked you about these Land's End loafer a few weeks ago. They are 30% off today. Do you think they are worth $70?
