Seriously though get some proper trousers and a well-fitting shirt with longer sleeves. The SC and shoes look ok from this pic... if you straighten up a non-skinny tie (too narrow for those lapels) and lose the bar you'll be much more presentable. try lurking more as you're a bit out of whack with this fit. Welcome to SF!

The navy blazer with gold-colored buttons is a classic piece, but the only other thing in your fit that really works with it is possibly the shoes

The shirt-sleeves look way too short but otherwise the shirt is pretty inoffensive, needs a suit though

Can't see much of the tie, but the knot looks sloppy and like nickels said it's way too slim for those lapels

I really only like tie-bars when you're wearing a full suit

Pants are like the shirt, inoffensive but doesn't work very well with anything else

Shoes are the best piece in the fit, but everything else is pretty meh which brings them down


Thanks so much, it's great to have people who give constructive criticism. I'm so used to, as a high school student, being constantly complimented and told that fits look great, even though they obviously don't. Is there way that I could make dark jeans (either the black 511s or my raw 501s) work with the blazer, or should I just get a pair of traditional grey trousers?

If you're in high school it probably doesn't matter what you wear to an interview, as long as you look like you put in some effort. Like 10 minutes into a 2.5 hour grad school interview marathon I realized there was dried vomit on my shoe, and that turned out fine. YMMV.

Also that's a cool cardigan lmao. Doesn't someone else here have the same one? Teger maybe?

Jeans can work well with navy blazers, not those 511s though (dunno about raw 501s)

and the cardigan is nice lmao, keep

They have a beige one, too. Thanks everyone! Most likely going to keep. Folk is quickly becoming one of my favorite brands. Not baller enough for you, jet?

thoughts on the ZakQ fit:

with the right pants this would be an ok GQ-looking fit. the 501s might work better than the 511s for this type of thing but still wouldn't be great as a job interview choice--gray wool trousers are the way to go. I actually like it all disheveled as a non-interview look though, so good job there.

I agree with everything Kid Nickels and Kindofyoung said. to expand on one point that was touched on but not said explicitly, the 511s are too skinny for the blazer--that's how they don't fit into the outfit.
