I'm with Achillus on this topic.....maybe timotune and uunottaja aren't going for anyone's definition of "classic" style. Why do we all have to be "classic" around here? Why can't we be a little trendy sometimes? Europe is more fashion forward than other parts of the world and though you might scoff at trends, it doesn't make it wrong. Because a few idols like Agnelli kept to their style doesn't make other styles wrong (don't peg me as a redneck because my state is full of rednecks). Besides, we have no idea where these guys wear their clothes. They might work at H&M or a boutique urban planning firm for all we know. If they do then this works. If they were 300lbs and worked in a traditional Midwest USA 50person law firm then it's not a good choice. Let's admire more and nitpick less.

You can be trendy and still have things fit you better and have better proportion. That is the difference between people who stand out amongst the trendy.

Agreed, but you also just stated the difference between SF and the outside world. On these forums we critique centimeters and half inches. I'm sure there will be passers by who say man that dude had on a tight jacket. But most won't notice what we notice.

(then again, if you don't want some critiques you don't come here in the first place. I get it)

Generally nice, but the bow looks like it's about to attack your neck. The knot is too tight, and you should shorten it (assuming it's adjustable) so that the bow isn't so wide when tied.

Tie is too skinny. Logo/crest on tie is too naff.

I swear, all these off white/cream/stone pants are different colors/cuts/fabrics in real life, not wearing the same pants over and over haha. I need more summer pant variety though I think frown.gif. May I ask for assistance on what to pair with this SC? I always feel like I am missing an element of color or pop with it. Pants, ties, shirts, etc would be nice to know your guys' thoughts.
Jacket-Belvest linen
Shirt-Polo
Tie-Nordstrom
Pants-BB cream white
Shoes-Brown suede chukka

Definitely a different tie. I would go lighter in both color and fabric.

Noooo toooo sexyyyyyyyyy noooooo!

Ahem, but yeah to your suggestion Derek, I have tried this with light grey wool and it works well, with my mid grey it seems out of place to me. The jacket is kind of a light brown/light tan chambray style weave and I worry mid grey is too dark with it. I have no issues pairing brown in the fall, in the summer I am lost. I was going to wear a berry pink tie with this today but decided it was too pastel for the brown base. revolve.gif

It has to do with the fact that we all have lumps, bumps and curves in different places that will still be prominent in a bigger, or smaller garment if of the same cut. If you are sticking to RTW you have to try on many brands and models until you find something that is cut the best for your figure. Things should "feel" comfortable and be smooth without the sacrifice of a sloven look.

This.

 

There is no perfect fit when dealing with RTW. Especially if someone has an athletic and or muscular build. If you can get am RTW coat to fit 95% correct, you're doing fine, imo.

I was looking for a way to say this. My words came out all bitchy and mean.

 

Tighter and shorter are in fashion. However, proportions still play and there is too tight and too short. 'Fashion' isn't carte blanche for anything goes. There is still "That doesn't look right on you".
