Additional price drop. This is an extraodinary suit. You won't find better quality at this price point anywhere. It has everything. Great suiting fabric, impeccable tailoring, full floating canvas, brand new suit. With this price drop, buying the suit becomes a steal. PM me for interest. Beautiful Samuelsohn Navy Blue pinstripe suit 40S - new without tags. Austin model. Floating canvas. Single vent. Double pleat trousers with 1-1/2" cuff. Price: $250>>$225...
One would think this is a good example. I spot two violations. Pocket square too "matchy" with the shirt and contrasting collar. Plus, viscerally, there is something not quite right with that tie.
Correct or incorrect?
I believe there are two varieties of white shirts. The first is the clean, pure white, poplin/broadcloth, point collar variety. This shirt should be worn with a suit. The second is the oxford cloth, button down variety - especially if it has a heavy fabric with texture. Further, many of these white OCBD shirts are not pure white; they are frequently "off white" if you will - egg shell, cream etc.. This shirt can be worn with a sports jacket successfully.

@BackInTheJox - As a point of reference, this is the way your tuxedo should look. Daniel Craig is muscular. Your body should not deter good fit. These are pics from Casino Royale. The tux is Brioni.

There is some horizontal extension of the shoulder line to give Craig the appearance of...
I do not like the shoulders at all. They should be much softer. There's not enough light to evaluate thoroughly. I know it's hard when your tux is black.
I think you should seriously reconsider the fit throughout the body. I'm not knowledgeable enough to tell you exactly what is wrong. I can say, this is not right. You have divots all over the front. Your shoulders look pinched compared to the waist. The lapels bow outward like the jacket is too small in the chest. The lapels do not roll properly. The back is an abomination. The sleeves do not hang properly. The shoulders look like hell. The shoulders look roped...
Really?
It has! Thanks for noticing. The label says the size is a Euro 52R. The length is 29" from BOC. In my experience, a Euro 52R has a length of 31" from BOC or more. That means the previous owner cut 2" off the bottom (a big alteration). The button stance and everything is thrown off when this is done. I agree. It looks awkward.
