Sanchito,

 

I'm going to hazard some advice since it seems hard to come by these days. It's hard to tell exactly what is going on because the picture is so small, but the thing that stands out about this outfit that really takes away from what it could have been is the shirt and the shoes. The shirt is too dark to offer much contrast and consequently the PS appears brighter and turns into the focal point. Again, it's hard to tell, but the shoes seem too dark for my taste. Paired with those trousers I might have gone with a bit of a lighter brown. On the plus side, everything seems to fit well. Trousers might be a bit long, but it's not catastrophic.

Clothes are never "just clothing."

P.S. You've got me dead to rights for being a turd. Guess we're 1-1.

Thank you sir...I appreciate that...the pic is of such god awful quality...so the shirt is black and white gingham and the tie is maroon...the pocket square is off white...the shoes are indeed dark brown...I have a pair of Walnut strands and they looked too peacocky for me to feel like I owned it...lighter brown would have worked better, I see how that would work with the darker shoes...I love critiques, thanks for taking the time to comment.

Talking of leeriness, I've been feeling ill with a cold the past few days but have been working today so decided the best option was to wear something loud, thereby distracting attention away from my red & running nose! biggrin.gif

I think the shoes are fine...but i tend to have a preference for darker brown shoes. I think the only thing that I'd change is the shirt. the proverbial light blue is always a good choice. If you wanted to keep the gingham print, maybe a brighter colored gingham would work better.
