The blazer on the top picture is exceptional. The fit is brilliant. Is that a leather jacket on the spring shot? If so, well done on that score too, beacuse the fit is likewise perfect-not too baggy, just snuggly. He looks cleaner, more crisp on the top photo, even though the shoes are full of paint dirt.
I like part II better. He seems happier, his hair style is more coiffed, nice tan. Perhaps he just returned from vacation or sold a few paintings (painted a few apartments??) No matter, just a good look.
SPRING: The barbour jacket fits perfectly. As you can see from his right arm he has been forced to sacrifice some sleeve length for correct fit on the body but has allowed for this by wearing a suitably cuffed sweater underneath. This same effect would not have resulted from a light sweater vest being worn under the jacket as his wrists would have seemed "bare". I can't locate it at the moment but I think I've seen a similar jacket on the Jeweller in a later post
