Yet another person who views image consultants through a negative lens, huh? Hours of work go into each consultation. It feels like time better spent than researching specific Italian brands that are outside most people's budgets. (The Die Workwear article actually makes some good points, by the way; sometimes entries on blog-like sites are self-obsessed and of little value to visitors.) The weird thing is that Style Forum can talk a ton about brands like Solito and...
Didn't read the text. Just looked at the pictures. Anyway, because any tie showing there is minimal and hard to see, it's hardly going to bother anyone or distract from the beauty of the suits (the somewhat full sleeves might be more of a distraction). The issue with the Solito suit came up due to the loud tie. Perhaps, the new trend toward aggressively styled suits that sometimes show tie tip isn't flaming out because people often wear those with dark ties (like blue or...
Hrrm, well, per roughly a minute of looking at Liverano suits with Google, the only images where tip tie shows buttoned are at [drumroll]http://dieworkwear.com/post/47544503001/the-italian-cover-upAnd less so than his.[meant as slightly humorous]
Nobody wants to see exposed tie tip. Going back to earlier photos, a bit of darker tie (easy to miss) shows beneath the button in a fairly normal pose. It's frankly irritating that people would dispute that's a sartorial error and that the tailor released the suit to the client with such a problem. Maybe it was mailed? At least it can be fixed without much difficulty. Edit: 'mensimageconsultant' is neither infallible nor a tailor and had hardly viewed the earlier photos....
Internet Tough Guy with probably no expertise in any style field basing that on what? Does the jacket not pull? Does tie (possibly wider than it should be) not show below the button? Someone stated the pose is contributing, but it's partly the fit itself.
SOL, due to the black and double-breasted. Hard to think of an occasion where the jacket would not stand out as strange.
Brown that matches is okay if it's a normal shade. For brown shoes with brown belt, the only guideline is that the two shades not be very different (e.g., dark brown with little brown). There's an article....
Why so much fawning? Time for an injection of truth - the jacket is too tight in the waist and has improper button placement.
Skip the J. Crew chukka boots due to a pairing of likely fundamentally poor quality and mediocre quality. The other pairs look better but might not be much better. Probably none of those shoes would last long in damp weather. With that low budget, maybe the casual boot should be something like a Bean Boot - http://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/506698?nav=ln-506697&page=men-s One reason for the limited help is that size and much about personal style have not been shared.
There's nothing wrong with the question, albeit it probably didn't deserve its own thread. There is not enough educational discussion on Style Forum - there are aesthetic rules, but not everyone instinctively realizes them and ought to want to know. Re the Trey Songz photo, yes that looks okay, partly because he has such a 'pretty,' attention-getting face and due to the jacket distracting from the pants, but the outfit is not very practical and the pocket square is silly...
