Not sure if I can wear any kind of tie with this collar at all, but from the look of it a smaller tie wouldn't hurt.

I'll admit this one works. It's elegant and not loud. I wouldn't want to draw attention to a four sided tie, but still have it look nice. This would work great.

I have a personal style blog that I post my daily outfits to.  I was doing that before I started posting on SF.  I'm doing my thesis on human posture.  

 

My guesses weren't far off then!

 

The daily outfit parade certainly makes for interesting viewing. You have excellent dress sense and more than a modicum of sprezzatura. Bravo!

The tie is not as yellow in real life, it's a little more sedate. Shirt is linen, tie is silk/linen. This is the accurate color, very different from the picture: http://www.drakes-london.com/catalog/product/view/id/5120/s/untipped-woven-8cm-silk-and-linen-tie/category/75/

My guess is that a set of gold colored buttons will "blazerfy"
the orphan and transform it into a DB button-two jacket.

( I am aware that metalic buttons are "out" in the SF world,
but these are extenuating circumstances. You are making the
proverbial silk purse...etc.)

Have the buttons replaced by brown horn, metal or smoked nacre and call it a blazer... because it is navy, isn't it? If it's charcoal, it's a no-go.

 

It seems to fit great for a thrift (can't see if you could afford to add some waist suppression) so I wouldn't get rid of it.

yes it's navy. must find some buttons then. and suppress waist?

 

the jacket has no labels whatsoever, bought it on the strenght of fit, assumed wool fabric and hand-done button holes.

 

and once again, thanks for the good tips to all

A few shots of the only RTW suit that I have! My father got the suit from a friend and it somehow found its way to my closet. I believe that it is from the 90s. I had several (quite significant) adjustments introduced to it and now I wear it every once in a while. Just to make it a bit more interesting, I also included a few pics with my colleague Agnieszka who is a fellow interpreter. In the pic she's sporting a beautiful petrol blue DB bespoke jacket.  Of coure I have her consent to post the pics.

Have the waist suppressed ONLY if you can do it without the jacket being too tight or close fitting. Otherwise I wouldn't dare touching it.

The four sided tie, also brought to you by the people who thought zip off trousers and reversible belts were a swell idea....

DC, I think you are a good example of a man whom dresses to his build very well.

I really like this look on you; might suggest a blue shirt as opposed to the white and a chocolate sock as opposed to the navy but nice overall.
