Constructive critique of my black suit - Page 4

post #46 of 55
The suit looks like it was inspired by Lad Musician suits made a few season ago. The lenght of the jacket is a stylistic choice and I happen to like it. I can't see much but here are some point I would consider: -Pants seem too long for my taste, I might look into shortening them, you go can from a slight break to showing ankle, whatever floats your boat. Having them pool at your feet sucks. -Not sure about the legs, maybe they need slightly more, taper, maybe they don't. -I'd make sure the collar adheres to your neck, it seems rather loose but it might be due to the way you stand or god knows what. -Your styling is execrable, a suit like this requires something more stylish like very sleek Chelsea boots and a stark white/black contrast (white shirt, no stripes). I'd ditch the tie but I'd do that with 99% of outfits worn with ties so take this with a grain of salt. -The overlong sleeves are a lad musician characteristic and are fully intended to be as such, I dunno about your suit and it's up to you if you like that quirk or not.

Again, thanks for all of the constructive comments.

This suit is by no means a business suit. I wouldn't wear it to an interview or anything along those lines.

I actually wore it today to a friend's wedding with a white shirt and left the blazer unbuttoned.

I feel that black is a good color and works well for me.

I didn't know there were rules regarding undershirts, but I'll keep that in mind.

I don't particularly adhere to any typical standard of suit style, perhaps you can fault me for it.

Although not cup of tea, you are still all over the place with the outfit. I would at least hem the pants a lot shorter, think Thom Browne short like this: As someone said, the collar looks horrible, but theres nothing you can really do about that. The extra long pants just clash with the style you have up top.

I took a look at this thread and said WTF, this must be a joke. How can that jacket be off the rack? The proportionals are way to feminine. I have no problems with black suits per se but the cut of this is ridiculous. I mean I like shorter jackets because I feel it works better for all but the tall/lanky or tall/big guy but this way way to short. It's a loss in my books!

But hey, with the feminization of men these days, what else is new?

When I took a look at this thread I laughed, then I threw up in my mouth.

Looks cool to me. Just leave the boy's section and go to the men's department and ask for the same suit and you should be ok!

There is a difference between bad and unorthodox.

The short jacket is a stylistic choice the OP made. It's not bad, it's different.

The only 'bad' I see is the jacket sleeves and the trousers need to be a bit shorter.

After all, what is celebrated on this forum as classic men's style, is a narrow set of items, proportions and fabrics that were adopted by the English upper class 100 years ago. These choices were driven by the culture, history, pretensions, etc of this small group of English men..

You can't be serious? Having a jacket an inch or two shorter than usual is a stylistic choice, and this forum may be more prejudiced than most again 'fashion' such as the Thom Browne look, but this coat is like Thom Browne x10, it's a good 4 inches at least shorter than a normal jacket, and just looks like it belongs to a woman.

Look at the picture of Thom Browne above, where the jacket bottom is 2-3 inches shy of his crotch, and compare that with the OPs pics where the bottom of the jacket barely reaches past his hips. You can argue that pretty much anything is a 'stylistic choice', but that doesn't mean it looks good, even in the context of 'fashion' it is so far off the mark that I have a hard time believing the OP intended the suit to look this way.

he's not showing any shirt cuff, either the shirt is the wrong size or the sleeves are too long.
