+1, w/ the exception that the square looks like it has really thick edge stitching.

Good points, gentlemen. I was focused so narrowly on pattern and texture that I neglected to 't take color into consideration. Perhaps this fit from last week would have made for a more "countrified" submission, but only if I were to swap out the white shirt for a button-collar blue oxford, no?

A little more Country? (Click to show)

Thanks, I'll try my best soon, just I have misplaced the cord for my camera so am stuck iphoning it for the time being.

I need your help. Please- a young guy with a limited wardrobe. 

And I do know that's a poor imitation of a three-piece. Dad had it for his tuxedo (yes, I know), and while I was able to point out his errors, I am in need of more professional assistance. 

I think your doing the best you can with this suit. It's black so there's not much you can do with a black suit. The shoes needs to be polished or more formal. You are wearing what are considered casual shoes with a formal three-piece suits. That doesn't work well... Personally I like to show about a 1/4 inch of sleeve. Your jackets sleeves are bit long but thats a very easy fix. The break on the pants is personal prefence, but it does look like the cuffs were poorly put together. Like I said, this is a just a very simple look.
post #21696 of 78722

Thank you. I've noticed the sleeves do seem too long, and the break is not by any kind of choice. The vest does not actually go with this suit (this is mine, my only one)- I had never actually worn a vest before and just wanted to try it on. 

 

What should I do to fix the sleeves and the break. Wear it higher? Thanks!

^ diesel has given you some good advice here. The suit is not terrible by any means, but not great. The pants do need a little attention but you MUST get some better shoes. That would make a significant improvement by itself. Next time try to take a very standard "fit pic"... full frontal shot with natural pose, arms at sides. the robo pose if you will... then everyone can see how it fits more easily.

interesting you mentioned that b/c if I'm not mistaken I noticed that it looks like the buttons are covered... yes? in that case it doesn't match the jacket so you might want to change them. One word of advice.... get the shoes you will wear with the pants before you go adjusting anything.... depending the break may be higher or lower or not at all.. those are somewhat bulky shoes you're wearing. and the sleeve cuff can be shortened by any tailor...easy fix.
post #21699 of 78722

Okay, thanks, I'll see what I can do about the sleeves. The vest is no longer with me- it was a rental for a mediocre tuxedo.

The photo angle is a bit dodgy too, what with the Freudian chair leg placement... laugh.gif

Friggin' shrinks, always running to Freud smile.gif Yea, it is a big shift, I don't know anything about photograph and therefore can't tell you why, but I promise the pants are actually a dark brown.

I think the jacket sleeves are fine. It's your shirt sleeves that are too short.

Thanks for the comments and thumps up today guys, CP, TB, Nii, Acrid, Patrick, SB and UC. Much appreciated.

Acrid, it is a lovely fabric! Its a prl polo II cut in really soft flannel. The color is a bit more mid grey than the pix imply (shows up more charcoal in pictures) and has alot of texture. It is my first 3 button suit, so I had to get used to the cut, but the fabric sold me!

@TB I decided to download some self-timers for my phone and it seemed to work out alot better. The issue is lighting in most of the places I can take pictures is not ideal. I will keep experimenting. I think it is fun to post despite my limited wardrobe and funds, so I want to contribute good pictures at the least.

Great looks today all around I would say gents.

I like your outfit a lot. Unusual colour and texture suit fabric. I also like how you play on the brown of the suit fabric against the PS, and the black in the Tie. I also like your collar stance / tie knot arrangement, looks pretty cool to me Mister. Stark monochrome and stance adds presence IMO.
