Anyone able to give me feedback?

 

In the future, you would be better served asking in the WAYWT discussion thread, whose purpose is explicitly to discuss fit and give feedback.  If you do ask there, you may want to temper your expectations a bit: relative newcomers with less avant-garde fits don't get that much feedback, from what I've seen.

 

Anyway, to your pictures: I see nothing wrong with those two articles.  In fact, superficially I like the jacket quite a bit; it's the perfect shade of really dark blue I like in outerwear ("midnight"?) and I think it looks great with the gold accents.  It fits fine; good length if a bit bulky in the shoulders.

 

The shoes are perfectly inoffensive.  The tan is a good color for summer and the styling is pretty minimalist, which I favor, but still one has to wonder about the rather random logoed leather embellishment substituting as a panel...which is totally not a huge deal.

 

TL;DR: you're good.

hey, thanks for your help. I appreciate it. I'm new to the styling gig and I wanted pieces that:
a.) Didn't make me think of dad
b.) Won't make me guido.

I live near a college campus so I see a lot of it going around.

I want to buy a black leather bomber jacket so need black footwear for casual evening/weekend wear,

 

i have seen these chukka boots but am unsure if they are suitable for casual wear as they are a shiny leather, it seems

they will be worn with denim jeans or chinos and a casual shirt, and the leather black bomber jacket. Going to the pub, shops, out with friends/girlfriend, cinema, restaurants 

 

But i'm not sure if these black leather chukka boots are too shiny for casual wear:

What other material would be more suitable for my use?

any other footwear besides black chukka/desert boots suitable with a black leather bomber jacket, for my activities listed ^^

If that's what you're going after, you've succeeded.

 

The details are hard to make out on the jacket, you might get more feedback with a better picture. And the shoes don't really match the forum aesthetic, but considering you've already bought it, there's not much to say other than they're fine.

Those chukkas look pretty off to me, I'd suggest some sleek side zips instead

 

I'm assuming that if you are buying a quality leather bomber, you can afford to pay a slight premium for nice side zips too

means the buttons don't reach the bottom, so you have to pull it over your head to put it on

How are the Thomas Mason shirts from Jcrew. They're probably not worth it for full price, but what about paying $65 dollars on sale? I believe it's 2-ply fabric with MOP buttons.

HI, I always have problems with shirt fittings since i am bulky in the shoulders and chest and have a thin waist, One OTR brand that fit me perfectly was the Express 1mx Modern fit in Large.

Im looking at JCrew shirts becasue Ive seen it mentioned they dont billow at the waist, Im wondering if I would be a Large in JCrew slim shirts as well?

 

I called them since I dont have a store in my area, but they just give generic sizes that sound fine but who knows - lots of their shirts that are on sale are final sales, so just seeing if anyone else has the same build and experience with these shirts.

Buy a full priced one to test the sizing? Anyone with a abnormally big drop will probably have to befriend a tailor or go MTM. Your best bet is to shop around various brands if you aren't willing to go for alterations. I either alter mine or buy Epaulet/WvG and deal with a slightly oversized collar (to accommodate the other measurements).

For what reason is Vibram typically preferred over Topy by owners of Guidi and Augusta shoes? I've never even heard of anybody Topying their Guidi/Augusta shoes, yet everybody seems to have the Vibramed.

I had my Guidi's topy'd really there is no difference just comes down to what the cobbler uses/prefers. In Australia topy seems to be the preferred brand I don't know why just seems to be
