Like the suit fabric though.

It's a rosette, not a silk knot. I was my late father's and I wear it every day.

As for the rest, you know what they say about opinions...

cool beans about the rosette.

while you are free hold your opinion, and the main thing is that you are happy with your dress, you do have to admit that some of the elements in your fit are on the spreezy/#menswear side of things. and as long as youre cool with that, rock on.

I actually like Nick's outfit a lot. The chambray shirt, suede shoes and wool tie are perfectly fine with a casual suit like this; in fact I think it's more interesting this way, a very countryish look. I have to agree with everyone else on the tie boaner thing, though.

i dont think anyone was saying the fit/combo is bad, i certainly wasnt. only that certain elements of the fit, and the way it was presented, was a bit dandyish. thats all. and like i said, if thats what he likes, more power to him.

In the first pic I said, hey not bad.

the 2nd pic is a trainwreck. The chinos look really in-congruent with the upper half and drape very poorly. Combine that with the PTBs (which look very geriatric in the pic) and you end up with a bit of a disaster.

this was discussed yesterday. and while i did state that im not a huge fran of those kind of khakis with that kind of jacket, the patches do bring it together some, and i certainly would not call it a disaster, thats a bit much i think.

Probably could've gone with an odd jacket today instead of a full suit, but meh. Worn with the J&M chelseas I wear whenever I have to wear a suit (they make me feel better). Saks house brand, wool silk blend BB tie and a very, very light pink mtm shirt.

^ Similar look today (top colors are accurate)

Tried the jacket a few weeks ago, found it very short and not right for my shoulders.
Looks good on you, the pattern is very nice.

You're absolutely right - I'm only getting wool trousers from now on. Chinos always drape like crap on me (although these were a textured herringbone that IMO goes well with a patch pocket + elbow patches jacket). The shoes are a regrettable choice, but it was suppossed to be a rainy day and didn't want to wear anything better, really.

This was as of yesterday. I don't know about the tie knot, I tried the... I don't know if the name is correct, double four-in.hand? I kinda like it cause it looks messy and so formal/triangular like a half windsor. Shirt colour is maroon. I know it is not full of colour but it's conservative.

 

Any recommendations on which other colours I can use with this shirt? Thanks! Have a nice day!

I really love that jacket/tie/PS combo.  Absolutely top drawer.  I'm not a big fan of chinos though, unless it's with a very unstructured casual jacket or none at all.  For me, they're a bit scruffy for your above-the-waist classic elegance.

 

Regarding your question, if you never wear a double cuff (probably not right with this country-style jacket anyway), then yeah, why not taper the sleeves a touch? At the moment they look straight and it makes them look a touch short, when they're not really.  But that begs another question: where are your shirt sleeves hiding?  Maybe they're too short?

post #37755 of 78724

^ mimo, the shirt sleeves were indeed too short. And they were french cuffs lol8[1].gif

 

I wanted to lurk moar before poasting again, but maybe I could use a bit of feedback on today's trousers? They drape much better than chinos, but still not convinced... keep in mind all I can afford is RTW.
