That's why his works and yours usually don't. You're trying to wear your casual clothes like you would wear a suit. You need to adjust to the more relaxed conventions of casual dress. Lots of people in the MC forum struggle with this and that's why you look like them. Just having a loose break in your pants and wearing beat up dress shoes (see stiker's) will relax the whole fit and make you look a lot more comfortable.

Couple of points having come home and taken the shots just now.
 
1. Should have been wearing brown shoes (not sneakers and no Vibram sole smile.gif  )
2. As I don't have brown suede shoes, I should have worn a darker shoe at least.
3. Shirt sleeves still need taking up. 
4. I think I should be wearing proper trousers, not slim chinos with a fit like this.

Why post a fit just to say you should have worn different shoes, pants and shirt?

Thanks for the feedback.

On the points I raised, they were on reflection upon arriving home.

I still think you should stop with patterned/checkered shirts
post #86974 of 117666

Care to elaborate? Why exactly do you think that?

 

Also, I don't recall you ever saying not to wear check shirts tbh.

Well you've said you want to go for a clean look, checkered shirts aren't exactly "clean", and I just haven't seen many (if any) looks with them that look genuinely good

You should really start shopping at Epaulet and asking for advice in the affiliate thread. If I wanted a clean bizcas style I'd probably just buy all my clothes from them.

That's actually something i've also thought and have begun recently reading the significant amount of information available in that thread. 

 

I think initially I am looking to replace my slim chino's with some straighter leg trousers which should help with the business casual looks for work. 

 

Weekend/casual day's I need to loosen up a little. I can see how sometimes my fits can come across quite stiff.

Alright great!
Well, my Ann's have a high shaft and don't feel very summery to me.
I like the cordovan (?) there, the sheen makes the whole fit IMO icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

That's stupid just writing off a whole genre of shirting, some checkered shirts look great, but they're just quite boring and they're the ONLY shirts he wears, which is the problem, he needs to get something different and more interesting in his wardrobe because all his pieces just look... average.

Maybe this has been mentioned before, but I feel like elisiX needs to look to SVB for some inspiration

lol sorry for upsetting you once again 

I have no doubt there are nice ones, but meant that they're in general not very clean, and as you said often boring

elisix - you would do a lot better by seeking advice on the MC side of the forum. You mention things like "proper trousers", "taking up shirtsleeves", "cleaner look", etc. SWD isn't really about that. Why not try to emulate some of the better MC "bizcas" (what a shitty term) guys like Doc Holiday, NOBD, and NYR (there are others, I'm sure). With a pair of better dress shoes and a less gaudy shirts I think you're much closer to MC than SWD. Right now you're in some bizarre expensive-clothing-without-a-purpose vortex.

@slstr: FINALLY A fit picture from you!

Great fit man, hope to see you post more soon. (Those shoes...drool worthy)
