As a gift I would feel awkwardly compelled to wear around the gifter. But for the price you could get two nice sets instead of one...

Looks like BC plus a wonderful coordination of colors and accessories from a variety of non-BC sources.

Can anyone comment on the fit?  The suit is a dark grey with faint blue over check.  Shoes are brown 5th aves.  

Festive/casual pocket square to lighten the mood.

also, if someone could tell me why the picture isn't going to full size when I click it, or add it, that would be great.

Nice fit. The jacket looks slightly too long, but it's fine. The shirt collar also looks a bit loose, and I would have used a different square with that tie. Also, I think you should consider getting a new haircut.

No one does. I generally post here if I'm wearing a tie and in MC Casual if I'm not, but as you can see from my most recent post, I break that rule occasionally ... and for no good reason.

Keep up the good work. You clearly know what you're doing.

Thanks. It's a Brooks Brothers Fitzgerald, and it's such a dark green that it often looks charcoal or even black.. Until very recently I've been having a lot of trouble making it work with other pieces in my wardrobe.

Then again, it's also possible that Victor was, indeed, a shill whose contract recently expired. laugh.gif

Thanks - the tie is a Neiman's house label, and the shirt is our own private label.

This is going to sound harsher than I mean it, but that suit makes your head look tiny. I don't know what to recommend that isn't costly surgery (to your suit or your head), but I am genuinely curious what the experts will say.

It seems you are very lean and tall

It will never look right for you to buy Ready to wear stuff

Fit wise, It is ok expect the over tapered jacket and low armholes

Jacket buttoning is way too high

Shirt color seems loose as well, however the sleeve length of jacket and shirt is great

But otherwise, still looks better than most population

P.s. Not buying the tie and PS combo

Keep working

Jacket looks too big overall. (too long. shoulders maybe a touch too big, or too padded.) Button stance is too high, which makes the jacket look even longer.

Trousers are okay. I'd definitely get a bigger cuff in the future since you're tall and skinny. I think a shorter break would look better too.

PS and tie are too matchy-matchy, and the square looks like it wants to fly away.

Finally I'd try to figure out what to do with your hair to get rid of the mushroom look and make you look a little older. (I had this problem until I finally found a barber who knows how to cut straight hair.)
