I apologize for the photo bombing, I haven't posted a fit in quite a while. Been all bottled up or something.

Nothing douche about aviator sunglasses, unless you're wearing them indoors. The've been around since the 30's and they're classic. I prefer the buggier looking shades myself....provides better eye protection.

The brightness and design of the tie aside, I think the double windsor is appropriate for the width of the english spread collar of your shirt. A smaller knot would be overwhelmed by the wide gap between the collar points.

I think the european style is a little underrepresented on this forum, and I believe you're one of the few I've seen on here that has pulled off a double windsor with a wide english spread collar pretty well. Also, your suit appears incredibly slimming, while still providing for a relatively relaxed fit, avoiding that dreaded sausage squeeze effect that occurs when attempting to achieve that slim-fit-tailored/Tom Ford look.

- Quarters could be opened a bit more
- Too many patterns (I can't believe its me saying this) but SC, tie, PS are all too much pattern. It could be OK to do all 3 in a pattern if they are really subtle, but all 3 of these are too much of a spotlight.
- Pants are too long, but you know that
- Tie knot is tremendous, try getting a better dimple and doing a FIH.
- Not enough contrast between pants and SC. Probably would have been better with a blue shirt too.

Your thoughts?

Thank you for the feedback, this is all a learning experience for me.

The easy things to fix seem to be no more double windsor knots and fewer patterns.

When you say there is too much shoulder, does that mean there is too much padding making my shoulders too square or that the shoulders are extending passed my natural shoulder too far? If it's the latter, how far should they extend?

What do you mean by opening up the quarters? This isactually an MTM SC that i had done about a year ago so it shouldn't be any trouble getting it altered. I think I will also have it taken a bit, I have lost weight since I had it made.

Thanks again for all the advice.
