    That jacket is incredible. Has it been worn a lot or did it have a worn effect when bought?

    Edit: I see link above. If I didn't have a Valstar safari jacket on the way I would go and purchase it now.

    @Tom Miler , @NickPollica and @EFV are looking very cool today. Erik, those pants look awesome. You've really dialed in your fit with Luxire and it looks like they've worked out how to do pleats too.
    That's a beautiful SC, @justinkapur

    I just performed minor surgery on this SC. I picked it up from GMMcL and it had an extra shoulder pad in the right shoulder. Had it been on the left I think it would have been useful (against my dropped left shoulder). A quick go with the seam ripper and needle and thread and it's good to go.

    Make those shoes in a UK 12 / US 13 or, and I mean this in the nicest possible way, I will have no choice but to hunt you down and inflict great harm. Thank you please.

    Obviously, you've seen the movie "Serial Mom". Violating that rule can be fatal. :nodding:

    Thanks for the kind words, Victor!

    I'm assuming (because your knowledge of tailoring terminology clearly exceeds mine by copious amounts) that you're looking at the rippling/twisting of the jacket sleeves and explaining how that might be fixed? I'll take this feedback to the tailor thread at some point, since I wanted to get some overall feedback before my next commission anyway, but it may also just be the way I was standing and end-of-day rumples.

    Regardless, your detailed reply is very much appreciated - even if I don't yet understand most of it :embar:

    ^ What CM said. All of it. Plus a smaller tie knot would do you right. Typically go for the four in hand - the knot your dad taught you.

    Follow all of that advice and you'll have a great starting point.

    Welcome!

    It would appear that I remain in the "denial" grief phase as far as mourning the passing of Fall,
