I also apologise for the terrible photo - my first go with a self timer!

No...

Ties with jeans rarely look good. If you've got very dressy perfect fitting dark jeans you can just about get away with it, with a relatively casual top half, but even if the jeanss were more dressy, the top half is just too close to formal dress for it to work.
If you must mix ties with jeans go for a wool or knit tie.

Have a good one and try not to wind up in the gutter today.

Needs a different PS, then it could work.

Take 2:



Mind you, this fit below from last month was met with heaps of praise, with the same jacket, similar shirt, and patterned pants. Forget the shoes from today if you can.

Yep, Spoo. Just the SV that threw us off.

I thought it was a great fit except for the PS. Too matchy with shirt...plain white better IMO.

the same base elements (suit, jacket, pants) can get praise or get criticized if the wrong accessories are chosen with them. with that other fit that was rightly praised, the pocket square and tie served as the anchor of the whole fit. the pants and jacket were your basic security guard variation with a twist, and your choice of shoes tied in perfectly, especially the color and texture of the suede.

that fit would be embarrassed to be associated with today's earlier number ... lol. the cardigan and p/s were the biggest culprits.

Mike

couldnt have said this second part better.

I was going to reply, but you beat me to it, Spoo - the fit was fine, you just needed to ditch/swap the accessories. Now it looks great
post #36281 of 37075
Acrid, the bow is fine for me, but I'd pair one that size with a jacket that has wider lapels...or wear a smaller bow

Sorry for not using multiquote.

Same here. I thought the shoes were great ...even sans socks. Only thing that threw me off was that cardigan.
post #36283 of 37075
^^^Spoo, I like the shoes, too.
post #36284 of 37075
Thanks guys. I agree, it looks much better now too. I guess that whole take one thing off in the morning thing is true And I really, REALLY love my new shoes. Will be making plenty of appearances here this summer.
