Tie: Ralph Lauren. Shirt: Stafford. Pocket Square: No label. Belt: Made by myself. Jeans: Uniqlo.

The patterns clash very badly. The spacing between the dots on the tie is the exact same size as the checks on the waistcoat.

Now... are you wearing a wristwatch?  If so, what are you wearing?  If not, what would you wear?

Pocket squares and bright socks are something I think I will have to work up to but, hopefully, I will eventually be able to pull off.  So, with what you said about the knot, would you agree with my use of the double FIH or what do you think would work better? I also picked up two pairs of AE oxfords last night, the players in black and the clifton in a darker brown.  I figured one black and one brown would be a good start, I have a third that I am contemplating picking up in black.

As for pics, sorry, that was a last minute decision to post from the office without a flash and terrible lighting.  Today I will see if my **functioning** digital camera is charged, and if so, see if I fare any better today.

 

And LOL I read ALOT of the previous posts in this thread and saw several newbs get torn a new one, so I came prepared expecting the same.



I'd suggest a half-windsor.  As the other poster pointed out, the point collar really wouldn't be very receptive to a big 'ol double-windsor, but a half-windsor would make the tie look more classy without, in my opnion, overpowering the collar.

Thanks!  It's a wool tweed from Soia & Kyo, a Canadian label.  It isn't well-known, so it has to rely on things like high-quality construction, superb fits, and interesting styles to attract customers.  I would have preferred a coat from Paul Smith, but this was slightly cheaper.

There really is no situation where a windsor, half or full, can not be replaced by a 4ih, or double 4ih. It's a matter of taste really, and 4ih is really the more traditional knot of the two.

It is too high, the buttoning point. Nice colors, though.

No.

(Longer: Pants are too long. Jacket is too long. Sleeves are too long. Shoulders too wide. Also, lens on full-length shot makes you look oddly two-dimensional and distorted in an Gumby-like fashion. EDIT: Are both buttons fastened on the jacket? Please, no.)

From one noob to another, in all charity:

1) The pants are too long-the back hem should be a couple of inches off the ground, not hanging over the heel and bunching up in front.

2) The sleeves are too long. I'd say they could be shortened by at least an inch-maybe more like two.

3) The two-button jacket should only have the top button buttoned. This applies to all two-button jackets currently residing in the Milky Way or neighboring galaxies.

4) Brown shoes (imho) would look better. It has been in vogue, for several years now, to wear brown shoes with just about everything. The shade of brown depends on the context, of course.

 

Also, the shoulders might be too big, but it's hard to tell from the photos.

 

Love the shirt/tie/suit color combination! Keep posting. mwink[1].gif
