Sleeves are too long, otherwise I think it's decent. Tucked in because I'm considering ordering a button down from them..

I think some mtm trousers would look 100x better on you than jeans.

Your first blue oxford the neck was bursting open, the chest too tight, and then actually a little wide at the waist, so it made you look dumpy/chubby instead of accentuating your shoulders and chest and slimming the waist. I suspect that your best bet for shirts will be MTM and sportscoats bespoke or very good MTM because standard MTM simply won't have the options to adjust for your particular shape.
As for pants fit, you have a relatively trim waist, but clearly well ahem developed glutes and thighs, so all that together and you end up with flaired pockets which visually give you hips. My suggestion here is to either size up a little to give your butt and thighs more room and then have the waist taken in a little, plus don't go too tapered down the leg, stick to straight to balance out the thighs, or actually, you're the example of where even a single pleat, maybe a double will give you a lot more allowance. pleats aren't old-fashioned, they're functional and in your case, maybe necessary.

IMO jeans look good. Shirt's nice too. Shoes aren't bad per se, just don't really work with this fit since the shirt and pants are both subdued colors. Even a classic white sneaker wouldn't work here because it just stands out too much, so plain dark footwear completes the look. If you had a lighter shirt, then those should could work. All that being said, they're not the most 'mature' shoes out there...

Close, it's a calorie tracker. smile.gif

Note: usually it's hidden. My sleeve got bunched up a bit

Oh man. Uhm... the canadian tuxedo isn't really doing you any justice.
Do you go outside like that?

Anyhow I bought that same shirt and agree on the sleeves.
I'm 6'3" and the sleeves are still on the long end.

knucks, for oxfords these might be good http://www.landsend.com/pp/mens-long-sleeve-tailored-fit-solid-hyde-park-dress-shirt~194212_59.html
great fabric and collar, room in chest and upper sleeves, and a tapered fit. Must tuck though.
And try the orvis slim ultimate khakis, i have feeling those would look better than the other khakis you posted.

Consider MTM shirts. Shoulder line doesn't line up and sleeves look long. Can you button the shirt comfortably?

Nice. Can you translate brandzanese and tell me who makes that jacket?

Edit: thanks, looks sharp.

Speaking of linen, finally got my linen s/s back from my tailor. So nice to wear a shirt and not sweat, holy shit this fabric is genius.
