The truth has been spoken.

This style is my own and it is refined so I guess it is already cultivated as for the hat I don't wear my hat inside except it is my own house and it was for a quick picture so It completed the look. But thank you for your tips. Instinctively I NEVER wear clothes like a costume, and yes that is me.

Wait how old are you?

P.S don't match tie and pocket sqaure colors.

That looks like a rather skinny tie. How wide is it at the tip?

Some friendly advice: frankly, I think this will look silly if not done perfectly. The matching tie and pocket square immediately takes it out of contention for "stylish". The low, loosely cut DB and the overall shininess look wannabe gangster-like. Even if everything is working, at your age there's no way you can escape being regarding as eccentric. But if that's how you like it, no one's stopping you.

You appear to be thin (not a bad thing), therefore:

1. Consider a spread collar to accentuate the width of your neck/face (gives you more balance).

2. Consider a windsor knot, again to give you some weight.

3. Ditto the comments about the pocket square.

4. Your sleeves look 1 inch too long. The cuff should rest on the wrist, not on the base of your hand.

Helpful hints ... take them in the spirit given. Best of luck.

I loved DBs from a young age. But for thin guys to look their best in them, I think they should be as tailored as possible. I'd suggest you consider getting the sides taken in a bit, for a more defined waist. And I second the sleeves suggestion.

By the way, welcome to SF.

Suit looks about a size too big, really.

Again, how old are you? If you wear that to school ever day, then I suppose you're more baller than I.

You are absouletly right I should not match the pocket sqaure and tie. I know a pocket square it meant to accent a tie and not to overpower it. The picture is not as clear as it could be so you cant tell it is not a solid red tie, it is red tie with very thin blue stripes, to accent the suit. So they do not match but it is hard to tell in this picture. The tie is pretty thin. I'm glad you guys know what your talking about and I take it in good company.

I do need to get it taken in at the waist, though something I've been meening to do for awhile. Are you sure a spread collar would go well with my narrow face. Should I go with windsor tie too. On monday I will get the cuffs fixed. Thanks I didn't realize that, since I do not know as much as I should about shirts.

For one thing the jacket looks too shapeless. If you go for the sack suit, by all means ignore my advice, but I would size down on the next purchase.
