Not surprising. You need a much larger collar here, to keep both your tie and lapels in proportion.

You don't like it, teh grey beard? Could look sharp in the oldog/oldtrix style, Señor Crust. As for today's fit, I'm impressed by the depth of your accessories wardrobe and how consistently you're able to find coordinating items.

Picture quality is meh, sadly my camera is with my sister in Brittany.
The jacket is striped navy/blue; close up with actual (if a bit too dark) colors in the spoiler, and the shirt is striped white/light blue. Wraitii (Click to show)

Collar is too small, and you look like you're swimming in that jacket. The jacket also looks like an orphaned suit jacket rather than a sportscoat.

Love the suit fabric and the snoozy tie. I also dig the PS/socks coordination.

Think of it this way: If Gwyneth can't pull it off, then neither can you.

Was going to make the same comment. The wrinkling and ripples around the calves just signify poor fit. You might get away with it in a casual outfit, but you seem to be wearing the WAYWRN version of the mullet, business up top, party down below..

thanks for the comments! I gained a significant amount of weight during the last two months in Korea, so the slacks don't fit anymore shog[1].gif

Lufty, I like the fit. My only the quibble would be the tie - if the shade is that off IRL, i'd have chosen differently.

Crusty, as always, the PS suit looks great. I like the shirt and tie individually and together, but they're a bit much for the suit. There's just too much going on.

Lufty, that collar looks dangerous.

Lufty - Like the collar bar.

Suit's a bit darker than the tie. The lights make the suit look charcoal grey on my monitor. I had considered a burgundy tie, but thought this could work. maybe it didn't. confused.gif

Thanks.

FWIW, I'm operating under the understanding that the club collar/collar bar thing is a pretty traditional ivy look. though I may be wrong.
