Noting your popularity in this thread, may I suggest a diet rich in beans - we wouldn't want you to run out of gas mid-interviews.

All the individual pieces are very nice, and they fit well too. In addition, your haircut is very sharp. However, I can't get over the disparity between the top and the bottom - the top is very formal (wedding tie, navy coat which looks like part of a suit, FC shirt...) while the bottom is casual (brown scotch grain bluchers, cotton pants). IMO, either you should just wear full suit and black shoes, or make the top less formal (change the shirt, and maybe wear less formal tie).

Many thanks to SpooPoker, Kai, Johnboy, Fred49, EFV, RDiaz, MrDaniels, Requiem, sugarbutch, Holdfast, VictorSFreturn, SeaJen, ian, and clapeyron for your thumbs up and good suggestions. It's always nice when "old stuff" in the closet still has a little punch.

Did the Duke of Windsor look like MC hammer?

I agree totally, that trousers which are too slim on bigger guys makes the problem looks worse. (TBH, there is absolutely no difference between a larger man and a slimmer one, on paper; if trousers are too tight/wide, they are too tide/wide!) What I am trying to suggest may have been miscommunicated. stiches would benefit greatly from a harder line from waist to leg opening (think Spoo--haha, the man-love continues! tongue.gif); ATM, his trousers kind of droop on him, which makes any affect, that he is large, look totally worse. Like I noted, I think maybe a 1.75–2" cuff, and less break would make his leg-line look better (*I'm sweating*). IDK whether it's the break, ATM, the lack of cuff, the leg opening or the width, but something is definitely off!

New SC.

 

I am not wearing it (hasn´t been to the tailor yet) just trying out patterns on patterns. Is it too much?

Navy moleskins and C&J chukkas. 
Shirt is Ashwood and Blake. Tie is from Pari.

Love the jacket, but switch to a light blue shirt and perhaps a more rustic tie.

Anden, that is the worst pattern-matching effort I have seen here in a long time. That would have worked well with a solid light blue shirt.

You need to read Alan Flusser's chapter on patterns in Dressing the Man and use that as a starting point for combining patterns.

^^ Anden - SC is nice, but you need a shirt that doesnt have such a similar pattern. ^^

i am trying out cuffs on my next 2 pairs of flat front pants. if i have them i am billing you and all the others who made that rec. smile.gif

also, i agree about the break. the break on those it a tad longer than i like, just a tad, but makes a big difference. i recently figured out the exact length from top of waistband to hem, for my trousers to have the proper break, and im getting then done 1 or 2 at a time. those have not been done yet.

Thank you for your honest comment. I would not wear it like this  and as you suggested I will wear it with plain solids. 

I am wearing a solid v-neck today...

Keeping it casual today. The boots were my father's in college, which makes them 58 years old.
