My very first post. Not sure if this is the right way to submit in this thread. Im glad I joined!
Rico - i think there is too much going on there. Maybe if you had on say an linen suit, i could see it toning this down a bit, but just with the shirt and tie alone ... its a lot to take in. If its with a navy suit, i'd say a solid colored tie (brown with some texture) would also look a lot better for starters. That shirt is pretty loud, so with the tie it takes it over the top.
Also, i think u need to host your pics on a site like photobucket or such, and then post the link here so that it shows up.
Welcome - there is a lot to learn here; both good and bad. Sift through the good and bad and apply it to your personal style

Since I actually do have a blog-column (a fact that I've forgotten, much of this year), I will be brief about this afternoon's suit fitting at Graham Browne. Having head tailor Russel back from his break really expedited the process this time and a number of your suggestions were taken on board. They're even accounting for the differing lengths of my actual arms:
The shoulders will be less padded / roped, which should also take care of any pitch issues
The trousers should be more or less what I want by next time - the bootcut remains, but the desired tapering in the thighs and seat - as I mentioned in the original post - is in the offing
The jacket waist will be less pronounced. This should avert the big hipped look, though in traditional English style, there will be a skirted appearance
Finally, I rather undersold the colour previously - it's darker and a touch more coppery / rusty; it also changes a little in different lighting. Disclaiming again that the premises are strongly lit and hostile to Photoshopping, I think that this one is more accurate (this was taken before the pinning began):
I'll do a post or two on my blog-column; perhaps the next time the suit appears here will be an ensemble portrait. Thank you for playing along
I really like the colour of the garment, it is so unique.
But you won't wear that tie with this suit, right? Right?
If you mean the second picture, no, if I need to put a tie essemble, it will be a pink candy stripe and white collar shirt with a green wool tie, white hanky.
The first look for the blazer is the above with white cotton trouser, leave the waistcoat alone.
If you mean the H.Lesser suit, that can be very playful as well, mostly like I will wear the item separately, but if I need to stick with all three, it will be a blue and white collar shirt, and a horizontal stripe tie with grey and blue. White hanky.
Playful hanky if worn with truffle neck, my favorite around town, London and tutorials.
