Also, the shoes need to go because the turned-up-toe look is for Guidos and used mattress salesmen. Only sultans and djinn can pull it off. Not to be presumptuous, but I assume you arent a sultan or a mythical creature that lives in a bottle.
This board is a bitchy little hornets nest of mostly self-important douche bags (myself included). Think about it - it's a board populated by people who are obsessed with the most absurdly superficial aspects of something that is inherently superficial to begin with (again, I'm guilty too - know thyself). Think a Joss Whedon fan convention, but better dressed. If we were decent people we'd all sell our Lobbs and RLPL and start an orphanage or something.
Ok, I'm sort of kidding. Negative reaction to WAYW posts is usually related to the perception of how much (or how little) the poster in question has studied the other posts on the site prior to posting. A little browsing would have probably primed you for some Madden-related criticism.
Also, don't make the mistake of thinking price = good taste. Plenty of people spend a lot of money and still look terrible.
How is that even possible? Seems like being a 40-year old virgin ... at some point, wouldn't it have happened by accident?
If spoo found himself wearing those socks, honor would dictate that he cutt off his legs at the knees. Please destroy them immediately.

This is hard to argue with.

I dunno. I sort of like it on a man of a certain generation. It isn't for anyone, but it works on CP.

I like the jacket a lot, but the Donald Trump tie has to go.

Skip to the collar shape part.)

Oh, my bad. I think I would still skip the tie though imo.

 

Here's something you need to dispel from your head: you have something to teach this forum. In reality, you have very little to offer and so much to learn. Now you may move on and grow.

Jacket - Oscar Jacobson
Shirt - Tintoria Mattei 954
Wool knit tie - Oscar Jacobson
Pochette - Morris Heritage

My posture looks terrible here, so let's have that over with: today's youth, back in my days etc etc.

Nice.

When I eat something that doesn't quite agree with me in the evening, I usually take what I like to call an "Effortless Gent" in the morning.

So this is really Foo's domain, but I'm trying to teach myself Photoshop, and this seemed like a good opportunity to do a cut-rate "foof" that would illustrate some fit / style issues.

Here's the before and the after - excuse the sloppy editing. As fun as this is, I'm not going to spend 100 years doing it . . . .





The original suit had shoulders that were too padded and a gorge that was too high, making you look like a lego man. The jacket was also slightly too short in my opinion.

The colors were too similar, and frankly, the suit color was incompatible with the your skin tone. You would do better to go less khaki, more grey.

Comments?

I hope for the effortless gent, but usually things don't go that smoothly

I dunno, I kind of agree with him. I try to avoid BD's when I'm trying to look serious. Not saying they are the wrong choice with a suit or dressy sport coat / office pants combo, but I think it's fair to argue that they aren't the optimal choice. You aren't playing polo after all.

 Repp tie = casual, blue blazer = casual, flannel odd trousers = casual, thus button down shirt = casual...

Anyway. Today, picture is dark as hell, spoiler has a little better shot, but the colors are washed out. I want this shirt to work with this fit, but I think it's visually clashing with the SC pattern.
Also, I want my hair to be PB awesome, but it's not.

Might not be the visual aspects (colour, pattern) that are clashing, but the texture. Is it a smooth poplin? An oxford might be a better choice.

This is where a pale blue oxford would be ideal imo.
