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 . . . . Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

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 have another suit almost that same color. One of my favorites.

You may be right about the cut and color. I do like khaki, though.

Isn't it? And the Sartoria Partenopea / Borrelli combination certainly ups the standards around here again.

Tie is certainly not as bright red as it appears in the pics...

"This looks great. But...I'd not use that PS and go for something solid."

 

Yeah, I think I agree. I would have gone with a white linen with colour piping (like yours) on this one, but the problem is I don't have any! My PS collection desperately needs additions. I've ordered a new one from Vanda but can't afford anything else yet smile.gif

The past 24 hours of this thread are the most entertaining it's been for months.

Ah! But the shirt is light blue! Bad picture, I reckon. I put up a couple of different pictures where, maybe, the color is a bit better. Terrible light, today. Gray skies.

I really like this but I am not sure about the shirt. It would be a lot easier to judge your outfits if you were to stand up :-)

Love the interplay between colors, patterns and textures on this outfit.

Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere on the forum, but may I ask what fabric the sports coat is made from?

Independent of the question of whether to windsor or knot (see what I did there?), this is a horribly executed example of the breed. This is akin to asking us to judge the desirability of all women based on a picture of Snooki.

Not really keen on the mix of red and burgundy/wine, but otherwise looking good, Orgetorix.

Funnily enough, this is exactly the same problem that I had with RDiaz's latest fit. I don't mind these red ties. Some people get very exercised about red ties, but I think it's only really skirting on dangerous ground when they are worn with a very blue blazer, or if we are talking plain red satiny ties. It's all a bit too 'primary colours' - in both the aesthetic and political sense of the phrase. However, this kind of predominantly mid-red tie with a predominantly burgundy PS looks a bit wrong.
