For those prices you could go bespoke, and probably should. Though certain forum members would advise against it.

I'd suggest checking out some less expensive MTM programs (CEGO, Chan) before heading onto Oxxford/Kiton/Scafora bespoke. Definitely check out the S&D forum for casualwear advice.

Don't laugh at me. It's rude. It was an attempt, as stated. I will post more pics! Criticism taken positively.

If you are really not a troll, then I apologize for the comments and crackup ( ). From the pic above, I assumed you were a troll reading the forums lately, because you are breaking just about every rule (or guideline) that has been discussed in the forums (all buttons are buttoned up on jacket, label on sleeve, suit jacket with jeans).

Anyway, assuming you are not a troll Here`s my input:

First I would suggest that you sell the jacket pictured above. It is a suit jacket, so it is basically useless without the pants.

Instead of filling your closet with suits...I suggest you buy more sports jacket and slacks. This way, you will be able to put together very casual outfits, as well as dress up a bit to meet people when needed. Of course, since your budget is unlimited, you should get a couple suits too.

At your age though, I think you should enjoy some more street fashion and designer wear while you can.

If thats the case, then hire Manton and LA Guy. For a "relatively" (I'm sure) nominal fee, they will easily relieve you of a substanitial weight in cash and replace it with wool, silk, denim, and a range of footwear.

(you guys can send my referral fee to my paypal. Or pay off my bill with Ricky)

I am not patronizing him at all.

I suggested that he try designers and streetwear because he is in his early 20s...what`s wrong with that? I think designers make presentable clothes too.

The reason I suggested designers is because it is my personal opinion that fashion forward type clothes look much better when you are young. He should enjoy young, fresh designer clothes now, as he will have plenty of time to enjoy more classic designs when he`s older.

Things like single breasted navy suits, brown and black captoe shoes are items that never go out of style and you can pretty much wear in any professional environment. Also, telling us your budget is a good idea.

Lastly, pay no mind to the posters who act like they were born in Kiton suits or Sugarcane jeans. Getting your style and the appropriate clothing is a journey that will take time.

correct. well said.
take your time. invest in a little of this and that as you collect knowledge. get some good pairs of shoes. youre young , you dont have to get all serious about 'sartorialism' like some people here; just have fun. nordstrom rack, banana republic, marshalls, and even ross can give you some good foundations.

You forgot one.

Jacket with jeans can work for a young owner of a graphic design firm. The collar would need to be buttoned when meeting clients, however, and a more mature "trendy" haircut is advisable. The gray area between "designer" (e.g., skinny) and "trad" is the main problem, isn't it?

In the second picture, the jeans do look a little cheap and tight (at least for professional use), but the total outfit isn't bad.

Based on what has been shared, that's about all that can be said.

For a creative-type I like colored shirts, but to be taken more seriously I think I would go with white-based, or at least lighter colored shirts. Lilac and pale blue would be good starters, maybe a few box plaids.

Since you're young and creative you've got room to indulge in flair in your clothing (NOT the Office Space flair), including ties for your presentations.

I think the haircut and sunglasses could be changed for the better, if you have corrective lenses you could turn those into a bit of gravitas with heavier frames. I've known people to get a pair of frames with plain lenses just for the added "maturity" (Not impunging anything here).

If you're still losing weight, hold off on dropping serious coin until you hit a stable weight. Find a good (alterations) tailor and make friends with him. He will be especially helpful for second-hand purchases that need a little adjusting.

You have plenty of time and a great forum to help you form your style. You've just got to unleash your inner dandy.

Wow, your firm must be really successful to have that kind of attitude and be able to spend thousands on clothing its chief executive instead of reinvesting. You may want to refer to the "amjack" thread....

You're joking, right? One of the absolute WORST looks in the world is the sports jacket with buttoned dress shirt without a tie. You see this look all the time on sports networks and the commentators that sport it (no pun intended) look like complete dweebs.

I also think that if you're going to wear a sports jacket, your collar should be sufficiently stiff so that it stays down (but hopefully not flat) and doesn't do what the collar in the picture is doing.

I believe he said "there's no budget." I should think that would mean he doesn't have a penny to spare for wardrobe upgrades. Otherwise, wouldn't he have said, "there are no budgetary restrictions"?

This is probably the biggest sartorial pet peeve of mine. Tiger Woods is one of the worst offenders, although it is usually with a polo shirt buttoned all the way.
