This is all cogent, although I think a light grey linen PS would be fun And TTO, very foolhardy of you to go out into today's rain. At present, I refuse to go outdoors at all (much as I really would like to arrange some tailored alterations)

The trousers look to be on the long side. The jacket also seems a bit wide around the torso and waist. I'll take your word on the sleeves, but I agree that they do seem long on camera. Also, I know you didn't wear the square, but you asked for feedback on it, so let me say, I think the pocket square seems to be at odds with the tie. The tie is a light and airy spring affair but the pocket square is definitely a heavy autumn. Individually, I think they're both nice pieces. I just don't think they work very well together.

Well, neither do I, but the answer to your question is "yes", either way

Not a word (well, maybe a few, but this one didn't ring a bell). I had the same one"”good stuff. Mine died after eating too much "building dust" during a renovation.

If you swapped the cardigan for a navy linen waistcoat, and swapped either shirt or trousers for a solid pair this would work well as a fun spring look (although I have to say these are the ugliest spectators I've seen ).

Too busy to my eyes.

I'm sure there's probably some rule about not matching shoes to tie, but I like this look so don't care

Pretty good.

I have a similar new suit with blue lines in it and wondered if you ever have trouble with shirt colors other than blue or containing blue? If you have some other pictures with different colored shirts I would like to see them. Looks good by the way.

Thanks,
Randy

Randy:

I have only worn this suit with white and blue shirts. I think this very shirt 90% of the time. You could go solid white or solid blue. You could also probably bring in a different color, like maybe a pink.

I'll have to let you know, or post a pic, as I plan to try the pink.

Thanks,

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.


Yeah the jeans are not that wide, the low camera angle and just being pressed makes below the knee look "dad jean", but I agree with your critique MoK and understand now about just a tie too - too incongrouos.

Thanks for your advice!

I think you owe it to the Forum to add the Fred hair style, it would really nail the look!

"I'm sure there's probably some rule about not matching shoes to tie, but I like this look so don't care "

I too wondered about that rule of matching tie and shoes. I am having a hard enough time trying to match with out being too "matchy, matchy" as someone criticized.
