I think that's what going on. The styling of that outfit is perfectly nice, but he just doesn't have the right build for that type of coat. I've actually noticed that about a number of his outfits. His styling, while not to my taste, is fine, but he's not choosing the right cut for his body, particularly those aggressively cut double-breasted suits.
He's short and muscular. He has broad shoulders and a narrow waist. He's got thick arms and legs. He's going to be a very difficult fit and just won't look great in a lot of types of cuts. I don't mean this as an insult. It's just a reality. I'm embarrassingly short and rather stocky myself, and I'm a very difficult fit too. I spent several years wearing ill-fitting coats, because I liked the looks of certain coats. It took me a few years of experimenting to realize that I need to find a cut that is appropriate for my body type.
He's got a good sense of style, because he puts together nice outfits. However, the cuts often just don't work on his body type.

No acridsheep stamp of approval? frown.gif

@zbromer - thank you for that lengthy feedback! That is precisely what I'm having trouble with. 99% of the time when I'm at my tailors, I'm trying to imitate a certain style that, gathering from some people's responses, don't complement my build. I feel I'm still in the very beginnings of my "sartorial journey" and trying out different things.

Have you got any examples of better silhouettes/better fitting suits on someone of my build? or yours for that matter - you described your build closely similar to mine. It's something I'm completely aware of yet not so sure how to fix. I'm just going with trial and error.....lots of trial and error.

This is my first post and have just started working in the city...so be nice., also excuse the creases in the cloths (picture taken at he end of the day)

Wearing
Gievies and Hawkes suit and overcoat( the tension on the jacket is due to my body movement)
Tag heuer 1500 watch
Loake shoes
TM Lewin shirt
Hackett tie
Vintage bag

Overall it looks very good , however I am slightly afraid the suit jacket might be too tight.

I personally do not like low waist suit trouser, but this can be personal

I really like your shirt, very well done

Is this color combo good, fair, or just plain bad?

As I said, I like the look. But I would dare with a less classic tie. Of course it's a question of personal taste. I mean, that's perfect, but a little bit of boldness could be welcome and that's what I would do, TB

 

Cheers

Looks very good to me. Like the tie/shirt ensemble. But the first photo do not let us see what is hapening with the trousers. As the trousers have a slim fit, looks like being just a little bit too long, so they seem to be brake by the shoes. Well, don't know if I made myself clear, but important is that you look nice.

 

Cheers

 

Vic

In the second pic seems like the waistcoat is way too short...also, be aware that traditionally a belt is not worn with a waistcoat...

Edit: Now that I see it closer, I can see it's just been pulled back with your jacket a bit. The part about the belt still holds though

Too much going on, it's almost a parody of British style. The combining of red socks, pinstripe suit, camel overcoat with crombie collar and also a contrast collar shirt looks like you got vomited on by Jermyn Street. Individually they are no doubt nice pieces, however all at once is just ridiculous.

The shirt lets down the ensemble too, why are you wearing a collar bar? The whole thing sends mixed messages really, are you young and fresh with a tight fitting suit with narrow trousers and a narrow tie, or traditional with a collar bar? It also has the sad effect of making your collar points too narrow to touch your suit revers. Please don't wear a belt with a suit.

See, for those of us in the US, the belt with the suit is perfectly acceptable. However, in the context of the three-piece, I agree. Lose it. However, we may need a ruling from upr here, considering he managed a week of three piece fits.

I don't disagree, but it was the best I could do for today.
