NewYorkRanger-
Well done! Love the shoes. This is one of the few looks where the use of a camel jacket does not look frumpy or dated. It is classic, modern and fresh. I am going to have to take a lood at Epaulet...

Thanks for all the feedback everyone!

 

This was my original post:

This is a suit I wore yesterday to a medical conference (I'm a student in the US going for my MD, so I figured I better start dressing like a doctor soon). I wasn't going for anything fancy or flashy, I was just trying to wear a decent fitting suit and looks like I know what I'm doing.

 

A couple disclaimers: I know the top button on the suit is pulling a little bit. That's mostly because I have my hands in my pockets. The way the jacket hangs on my right side is the way the whole thing looks when I stand normally (i.e. no pulling)...HOWEVER, I have gained 10+ pounds since having it tailored, so it fits snugger than it should. Too snug perhaps?

 

This is a suit I bought on a budget (I am still a student after all...)

 

Suit: 38L (normal size is usually 40R) lower-priced "SF approved" brand

Shirt: Brooks Brothers MTM

Shoes: cap toe lower-priced "SF-approved" brand

tie: vintage

And here's a few of my responses:

im in medicine too and nice to see some well dressed health care professionals!

Thanks! Medical professionals definitely do not seem like the type of people from which you should take fashion queues...at least not around where I live.

Point taken.

I'm surprised it's an L; how tall are you, out of curiosity? More importantly, I don't think that tie works at all well in situ. Actually, I don't like it even in isolation, but I can conceive of outfits it might work. Just not with that colour shirt I think. Still, from my experience of medical conferences, I'd bet you were still one of the best dressed there...

I shouldn't have posted the size since it isn't representative of a 38L. I'm 6'2" and 180 lbs (+/-10 lbs on any given month). My height is mostly in my legs, so I generally get a better fit with a 40R as opposed a long, then have the sleeves lengthened to get the length on my overly-long arms correct--picture Cosmo Kramer from Seinfeld and you'll get a pretty good idea of my build...it made it really hard to find properly-fitting suits and shirts before I discovered tailors and MTM.

My attempt at three patterns. Thoughts?

Coat is great on its own. Shirt and tie? Not so much.

Thank you! I really appreciate this post, just as I appreciate all the other comments/thumbs on my latest pic.
It's probably fortunate we don't have a legal system involving jurys in Sweden wink.gif
If I cared about what average Joe thought acceptable, I would always be wearing jeans and hoodies/chinos and shirt with the rest of them. I'll admit this suit is kind of an experiment and that it's not a work suit, but for most other activities it works just fine imho.
About it being a DB, I wear it buttoned of course but left it open to show the whole suit in this pic.

 

 

I am admittedly a little suspicious about a legal system without juries ;o) But that aside, great response to a seemingly odd comment. That suit is not my thing but you make it work for you and you are certainly better dressed than the Average Swede.

Thanks for the reply. I will experiment with other shirts/ties next time I dig out this coat.

+1. Textures and patterns aren't coherent.

The jacket is beautiful. Deets?

Never seen a breast patch pocket in that shape.

Lovely suit. Not sure about the shirt. But why oh why are you doing that #menswear thing with your tie? As I said to Timotune who has been doing a similar thing, it looks like something copied from GQ - and that isn't good.

I agree with orge, that tie boaner is ridiculous, silk knot in lapel + sunglasses out of the pocket, doesn't help it out any.

Like the suit fabric though.
