Nou... I don't want to jump on with bustin' your balls... seems others have that covered; however, I have two things I need to say: 1) A sports coat and trousers are not acceptable for most weddings (based on everyone else's more appropriate dress I would guess this was a traditional wedding) so get a suit, 2) cuffed pants are not a great idea for short men like us... even worse if your hight to weight ration has a larger number on the right of the :
Just trying to help out.
BTW, I kind of like the bald and beard look... good on ya.
Yea, I wasn't too happy with it. I don't buy many formalish clothes, and this was short notice. It wasn't super formal, well it was I guess... I couldn't tell which was supposed to be more formal. The wedding in Seattle was the real wedding and it was pretty laid back, the one in Istanbul a week later was more like a giant party, no ceremony (except for the indoor fireworks when the bride and groom came in ).
I like a full suit better in any case. Cuffs on pants, yea... It looked good when I had them hemmed, but eh in the pics I don't like them that much.
Sadly, I am barrel chested, even with out fat... So I don't know.
Lira, the shiny one is actually pretty bad-ass. She is a lawyer who just finished up her post-graduate degree in International Law. The girl on the far left is also a lawyer. The one between them is a high schooler.
Turkish girls are hot.
(and for the record my cousins in the first photo are: the left one a cardiology RN, and the right one, a Library Sciences something [post graduate degree, not sure what to call it] who works as the medical librarian at a hospital [same one as her sister, small town, their dad was a doctor], the bride is another lawyer, my brother and i? Slackers.)
