It looks good and it suits you to a T. I don't like the yellow tie and the shoes but that is personal preference.

Well, this is interesting to hear. Thanks for all the feedback. For me the suit is pretty much bang on for what I look in one, except for maybe slightly too much roping in the shoulders. I prefer this kind of a buttoning point and could do with a bit slimmer chest and as CousinDonuts said, sleeves. The pant length and width is also something that might not go as well in the US or the UK, so I understand the comments. As for the jacket, well, I could fit a small pillow in there and jump around without anything pulling. smile.gif

Nothing wrong with a bowtie and a suit. Also nothing wrong with not liking the combination.

I wore a bowtie yesterday, and realized that I apparently subsconsciously fiddle with the blades of my tie throughout the day. I repeatedly found myself reaching for the blade of a tie which wasn't there.

See now if that jacket were mine I would want less waist supression and slightly larger sleeves so you don't get all of those unsightly wrinkles. The pants are just down right too slim. I just see this look and think 20's something finance guy in new york. I think the sillhouette is boring and not elegant. Just my opinion. If you're happy that is what matters.

Fits you well but black shoes would be better. Maybe even chukkas or chelsea boots. Dark brown suede would be nice, too.

A pair of suede shows to that outfit he had one would be score, really.

"I bet you get a lot of comments at work with this one."

Mr. Butch - I got fewer comments on my attire at work today than I received here, but I credit that to the fact that my co-workers are more inured to my sartorial excesses than the readers of these fora.

As for your observation above - yes, I have had the same thing happen to me. I can be quite flummoxed when attempting to use a urinal, and there is no four-in-hand necktie to throw over my shoulder shog[1].gif.

The sleeve length is some kind of perfect. smile.gif

i concur. please do not take anything more from the chest Uuno ... it is good as is.

the pants though need a ton of work - maybe a recut, but i dont even know if you have enough fabric to make it drape right. all the wrinkles you see from your thighs down are a good indicator that it doesnt fit right. the shoes definitely should be darker.

i like the p/s (or what i can see of it) and the tie, but not a fan of that tie in the context of that fit ... maybe with a pale blue or even a pale green shirt but not white ... too harsh contrast.

Recently promoted to a new position at work where I am required to wear suit/sportcoat and tie everyday. Wardrobe is definitely limited, as I haven't invested in any clothes of this type in a long while. Today I'm wearing:

Shirt: Roundtree & York Gold Label
Tie: Jos. A Bank Signature Series
Blazer: H&M

Still trying to figure out what kind of tie looks best with a spread collar... today I sported a 'Four in Hand'. Thoughts? (ps. I really hate the Windsor Knot)


You are definitely making the right choice with a spread collar with your facial structure and build. Why not split the difference and try a Half Windsor? I think it would do you a world of good.
post #34155 of 78724
I don't subscribe to the whole the collar should work with your face thing. I just think spread collars look better on everybody. Also, there is little reason anybody needs to tie a knot more complicated than a four-in-hand, imo. Anything more looks like you are broing it up at the junior prom.
