AAS, that fun shirt with a contrast collar pegs the nope meter. But you clearly enjoy it, so that eases the pain somewhat.

I figure if I don't peg the nope meter at least once, then I'm not doing it right.  It's in my top 10 favorite shirts.  I didn't even know there was a nope meter.  Learn something new everyday.

You're a guy with an enviable ability to create strong combintions (and take good pictures) which makes your love of 'fun shirts' and pleated dad jeans even more puzzling. I don't think I know of any aesthetic criteria under which either look good.

The pleated jeans, I can't defend. The fun shirts are actually fun. There's no aesthetic criteria under which they're elegant, and they may be unavoidably goofy, but that doesn't make them indefensible.

 

Also, I share AAS's love of bit loafers (though not to the same degree).

I appreciate the way you combine patterns, texture, and colors together.  I think those are all spot on in this composition except the pocket square and socks.  I think something in the blue or brown family would have worked better.  The biggest issue I have with the outfit is the jacket.  In particular, the balance of the jacket and the large v it creates.  It seems to be a fairly large collar gap at your left collar.  I think the lapels need to be rolled to the top button.  I wouldn't recommend buttoning the top button, but I think this would make the lapels sit closer to your collar and eliminate the gap.

Hober, from the Macclesfield range.

Thanks In Stitches and Clapeyron. I should post pictures of the coat before it was altered. I'm still a little awestruck at how much can be altered once the coat is made up.

I really like this combo.  It looks perfect for a summer wedding.  There's a bit of collar gap on your left though.  Is collar gap something people care about or is it just me?

Nah, it's not just you.

Certainly not. In fact, it's pretty much the first thing that the bespoke crowd will notice here, along with the question of whether the lapels are wide enough for Kai's build. There's already a bit of a discussion of this on the Beckett and Robb thread that Kai started.

That low button stance works well for you and I like the look as it's sharp and not fussy. I would have your guys check out your neck circle though it stands off the neck a touch. They may be able to just shrink it with pressing.
