Jackets are a little too long for my tastes but those are great summer looks.

Isn't personal style great? All these guys seem to be comfortable in their clothes.

THE solid Navy tie has to be the most wonderful thing in menswear.

Orange pants, with the blue blazer, can't say I would do it but

The second photo works better to my eye. I think it has to do with skin tone, and the orange is toned down a bit.

Agreed. I like the rusty orange tone a bit better. In fact, I think I'm going shopping!

Haha. A funny coincidence. Just bought myself Marlboro Classics Rusty Orange Pants. Got them ridicolously cheap too. (And just couple days ago, bought myself my 1st (navy) blue blazer.)

The pants are too loud, and his tie is too long. The first and second jackets are too long. The similarity of the colors of the tie and pants in the second picture is disconcerting. The third outfit is okay, except for the lack of visible cuff and the rear of the tie peaking out. With the problems above corrected, the other two outfits could be very good.

I agree with most of the comments about jacket length, etc.
Overall, they all look stylish and better put-together than most folks out there. And I applaud bachelor #1 for the bold pants color. That said, it doesn't quite work for me. I don't know if imageconsultant is right that they're too loud, or if it's the combination with the dark jacket. Regardless, he ends up looking unbalanced to me. It might work better with a lighter blue or a gray jacket.
I absolutely agree with imageconsultant about the way bachelor #2's matching navy tie - a great tie, by the way - and slacks draw the eye directly down into his crotch. Not good. Extra credit to all three guys for the pocket squares.

Thanks.

The orange and the other colors work well with each other, but "Man in the orange pants" basically can't be a positive. Maybe light orange with a bold tie. Maybe. Now you see why some items sell even though wearing them is a bad idea.
