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...post #37728 of 7872210/17/12 at 8:38pm
Thanks for all the feedback everyone!
This was my original post:Quote:Originally Posted by MedStudent
This is my first post on sf...since it always comes up when I google my fashion questions, I figured I might as well join. 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
And here's a few of my responses:Quote:
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.Quote:

It's a nice start. Personally, I think a slightly longer jacket would look better, but you're younger than I am, so the more fashionable length is fine. 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.post #37729 of 7872210/17/12 at 11:29pmpost #37730 of 7872210/18/12 at 4:41ampost #37731 of 7872210/18/12 at 5:19ampost #37732 of 7872210/18/12 at 5:22amQuote:Originally Posted by EFV
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
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.post #37733 of 7872210/18/12 at 5:23ampost #37734 of 7872210/18/12 at 5:25ampost #37735 of 7872210/18/12 at 5:27ampost #37736 of 7872210/18/12 at 6:11ampost #37737 of 7872210/18/12 at 6:18ampost #37738 of 7872210/18/12 at 6:19ampost #37739 of 7872210/18/12 at 6:41ampost #37740 of 7872210/18/12 at 6:42amQuote:Originally Posted by NickPollica

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.
