not bad. id probably try something in a different color rather than a darker shade of grey. Maybe something in blue or red? I saw someone wearing a yellow waistcoat with a navy suit and a maroon tie...looked spot on. Ive wanted to try this out myself as well.

In other words, I think the waistcoat should be a patterned fabric like a check, plaid, etc. hopefully with a little extra texture to contrast with the solid fabric of the coat. Knitted items can also serve this purpose well. Conversely, if the jacket were patterned and textured then a smoother finished and solid waistcoat would be a nice contrast.

Well it actually is a waistcoat from another suit,this was the first time i was trying to do this,if i'll like this style i may get more waistcoats but i think checked or other color waistcoat differentiating heavily from the suit will make it too casual,no?Also i wear sometimes suit jackets and pants as separates,mostly plain ones,may be it's a deadly sin here but it's ok for me
Also i would appreciate very much some feedback on suit,fit and generally to overall attire(tie,shirt,ps),because I'm quite new to this and would like some recommendations.
It may be the photo, but the bottom portion of your pants looks odd. Maybe a smaller leg opening and/or hem the bottom a bit may help with the issue. The jacket appears to be fuller cut and rather roomy and you appeared to be rather skinny in your photo, I'd would suggest visiting a tailor and have it slim down but that depend upon your personal taste and the purpose of your wear.
Thank you for reading and I hope my constructive criticism does not offend you, otherwise my apology is present in advance.
I can't get into this whole like button thing yet, so sorry for the long multi.

Thanks man. The suit is a vintage Tom Ford for Gucci. It had some extensive work done to it, but its one of my favorites. I bought it on B&S for $100 shortly after I joined, can you believe?

I certainly appreciate that man. Hold on to your seat for fall then if you like SB PL's

Another valiant effort, but I am just not feeling this, H. I don't think that really any other patterns should be used when playing around with this suit, save for a floral PS to balance the geometry in the jacket/pants. On the plus side, this gives you free reign to dance around with the color. I think this would be totally awesome as a suit, with a pale pink tie and a hunter green tie. But thats me.
