Great pants. Who makes them? I'm not crazy about the jacket, but the buttons look fantastic.

And now for my own two cents.
I finally forced my lazy ass and decision-phobic self to find and get my ass over to a tailor to work on the clothing that has been accumulating for about a year now... I went to Mr. Do's, on Wisconsin Ave. in Georgetown (Washington, DC), and I need to report that I am very, very, very happy. Mr. Do is friendly and professional and has great intuition.
Best of all, when I dropped the clothing off at 1 PM today, he asked when I'd like to pick it up. Jokingly, I said I would love to wear one of the suits I dropped off to a dinner I was going to attend tonight. Without flinching he said I should come pick it up at 5 PM! And we're talking about serious alterations. I picked the suit up and, despite the four hour time limit, the work was impeccable. I wore the suit and received upward of 10 compliments on it tonight. I'm thrilled!
Long Live Mr. Do!
(Sorry about the multiple pics: it's just that 1) This is my first time wearing this suit, so I'm excited and want to show it off; 2) I'm super happy about my first successful "double FIH" tie knot. Thanks, Spoozy and SOS! It's a great look. 3) I don't really think it's so terrible to post a few pics....)
PRL suit (from the Made in the USA fully-canvassed line), Brooks Brothers tie, RLPL pocketsquare, Ike Behar shirt, Rodan antique watch, Saks shoes.
Spoo try a taller collar on your shirt, I feel like that lays too low Gregaz Deadly simple. Deadly. KtownGreg I feel like you're killing it lately. Keep it up. Although I may consider losing those boots, chucking on some brogues.
^Love the shoes. Are they black suede? Ever since Bmulford posted a pair of black suede shoes a few years back I've always wanted some, but never found the "right" ones.
Thanks. The shoes are actually very dark chocolate brown. I do also own a black suede pair, but they are slightly less plain than these in terms of form.

+1. The tie is already fairly casual/attention drawing. A plain white PS would go nicely with the rest. Also, a full length shot would be nice. Good start though!

Thanks. My daily driver for over 2 years now - and still my favourite watch.

Thanks, I'll see what I actually end up wearing on Friday and then decide whether or not to cheat.

You've got the right idea in terms of combining but it seems (as for as I can tell from the pics) that you need to work a bit on fit - both jacket and trousers look like they're a little too large. Welcome.

Tried to touch your pic up a bit; hope you don't mind:
Wow. Way better - and more like it actually looked.
