Plus fours are always +1

I can't think of anywhere you can't wear that outfit.

lol, thanks.

 

I thought the shirt and jacket together created enough of a riff to require a very strong central tie to pull the eye in a bit, hence its relative dark sobriety.

 

Never fear, the speciality ties always lurk in the wings, waiting to give palpitations.

3rd post - Getting ready for the winter.

 

 

The jacket looks long here most probably because of the angle. It's fine in real life I think.

Is the overcoat too long? Should I have it shortened up to my knees?

Depending on your height, you might want to raise the hem of the coat so that it comes a bit below your knees, rather than mid-thigh. Were it I, and I were relatively short (below 5' 8"), I'd seriously consider shortening the coat; were I over 6', it would be more of a style/personal taste question. As I am 5'9" tall, I'd be very undecided, were it my coat smile.gif.

I agree that the length would look better if it was slightly shorter. However, I think that shortening may be detrimental to the overall balance, especially the button positioning. I mean that the buttons seem to be positioned lower to match the length. It certainly does not look bad in it's current state- perhaps we could judge better if you post with the buttons closed.

Experimenting with a couple poses here. Any other comments, critiques? Review? Anything I should burn?

Cons
- The color is fugly
- It's a lame point collar
- It's worn with a brown tie and grey jacket (not the shirt's fault but still...)

Pros
- You appear to have buttoned it correctly
