Dug into the back of the closet for the FU contest. I tend to wear this more in summer, it being unlined, but it's a fairly heavy wool, so with a waistcoat, it can work on cooler days too. Probably the leeriest jacket I have. Bunnies and seals on the tie may be kawaii rather than FU, however, so apologies for sending out mixed messages... Warning: Spoiler!(Click to show)
More of a gentle rebuke than an FU, if you ask me.
Your jacket seems a bit big in the shoulders? I personally would have done a four in hand knot, especially with that collar. Also, I think it would look better if your tie clip was down a button on your shirt and slightly crooked.
The shirt and tie are all kinds of wrong but I'm chalking that up to throwing something on to get some ides on the fit of the suit....
I would suggest you get the jacket waist taken in a little and the jacket should be work. On the pants, it looks like you have pretty big calves based on the fit of the pants at that level. However, it looks a little loose through the thigh area so a tapering should provide a better fit although you could certainly get away with it after the length is dealt with. Nice simple style on the shoes and I like the socks as well.
Well, my calves are not that big - there is space in the front of the pants. The pants just fall down in a way that makes my calves look big. I guess, I can't change that.
The thigh area is a little loose. But not too loose, it fits perfectly if I sit down. The pants from my gray suit are not that loose, but are a bit tight when I sit down. I don't know yet, but maybe I'll give that to my tailor in the near future.
If I let my tailor take the waist in, the jacket will be smaller and the walking slits on the sides will be open - that's not good I guess? Or does this not happen?

Yeah, I thought so too after taking the pictures... But I didn't want to take new pictures and I wasn't wearing this in public.

There's something at your back (first pic), I'm not sure about whether the jacket is too big there or it comes from the way you pose. Someone mentioned to take the waist in a bit, that could solve this issue. But this is a minor issue I think.
Shoes look familiar. Van Bommel captoe I bet. Good choice.
It is dark blue. And I think its just the pose, that makes the "something" at my back in the first picture. At least I hope...
The shoes are Van Bommel Cap Toe. They fit really nice, look good and are affordable. Thanks for that hint! I think I'm gonna buy some brown Van Bommes in the near future.
The suit is btw a "Soer". Feels and looks really good in my eyes. The fabric is not as thin as my windsor, but I like it. For the summer I'll have to buy another one - very thin wool or maybe linen. I don't know yet.
