    Sweet, thanks for the info JC. Other than that, it fits pretty great off the rack (out of the box).


    Realized I posted this in the wrong thread, meant to post in Recent Purchases.

      horns - No worries. Sleeves are $15 for me, so you might be even luckier. Worth asking for a full once-over by the tailor. I like showing pics of what I like for a perfect-fitting suit so they know what my expectations are.

        Thanks NC, good tip -- this suit is pretty much there outside of the sleeves, pretty great fit and I don't want to get anything else done really, so it should be pretty quick and easy. I'd post pics, but I don't have a good camera and I'm camera shy when it comes to posting my mug on the interwebs

          Here are a couple from recently:

              @clee, I like the tie a lot, though I'm not a big fan of the pocket square fold.

                I don't like that fold either, but thats one of those things that really comes down to personal preference.

                  @clee: that merona blazer looks well fitted. did you get it tailored?

                  Comment




                    @Acousticfoodie - Nope, it actually fits just a tiny bit too tight but not enough to get tailored. I just have to make sure I don't walk around with my arms folded all night long. The sleeves are about half an inch too long but I ordered it in tan also so I'm waiting for it to arrive before I take them both to get taken in.

                      @Greg_S I really like both of those fits, and that's a sweet tie in the first pic, I need to check out the tiebar, they seem to make some really nice ones for a decent price....have you had those double monk straps for a while? I'm curious how they've held up for you


                      @Clee, that Merona blazer seems to fit you damn near perfectly OTR, I maybe would have worn a darker shade for the jeans, but that's just perosnal preference, overall that looks really nice to me

                        I actually really like the fold...

                          A bit more of a casual wine show today. The colours are a bit brighter than they appear.

                            @Pitt, thanks man. I love my several TieBar ties. As for the shoes, I've only had them about 2 months. I do like them a lot. They have broken in easily and are pretty comfortable. The quality will not blow you away, but they are solid for the price.

                              focuspants, in my opinion you could adjust a few things that would help with your overall look. The floppy collar and tucking in your shirt would help pull everything together. Either place the collar inside of the sweater, and if that doesn't work try some Wurkin Stiffs.
