New suit and tie...robo pose because I'm also using the pic for fit advice for possible changes on my next suit with the suitmaker:

Kaplan,

 

I love what you did there! I don't know if it's perfect like others have said. For instance, I think the first person who commented on the shoes was right. I wouldn't have chosen that. But it's a really strong outfit IMO. I'm jealous of your color matching abilities!

Nice

Navy isn't a fail IMO. A lot of people just don't know how to peer it.

Beat, looks nice. I would personally get a slightly longer jacket, drop the pockets slightly and lose the ticket pocket. Also, the trousers seem a bit skimpy. Also, are you slightly bow-legged? Perhaps talk to your tailor about taking in the crotch inseam to swing the pattern to make the legs fall straighter and less like: (( )) I have the opposite problem of being knocked kneed from my fat days. Also, to really nitpick just slightly reduce the trouser length.

Stylistically, I don't care for the contrast collar shirt.

I agree. I'm not sure I know how to "peer" (?) it, but I definitely don't immediately discount it's potential.

Jacket shape's terrific Beatlegeuse. r u broad shouldered? if anything go one wider. maybe.  sleeve pitch may need slight adjust there's very slight  rippling.  My personal pref would be for wider pants, no cuffs, but TEHO. 

 

what's the weight and color of the cloth?

FTFY, I belive that is what he meant.

I personally don't have any navy wool trousers, but I love my navy chinos and linen pants. Pair them with a brown or green SC or sweater, or nothing more than a shirt.

I think the angle of the pic is a little low, so it's making the jacket look shorter. It covers my butt, and I actually had the front of the jacket cut longer than the back to fix a balance issue. I'm definitely bow legged, and that's a problem I've always had with suit pants. I'll talk to my tailor and see what they can do about it. Like Caustic Man just posted, this isn't a contrast collar shirt, it's just a standard light blue.

I have pretty medium shoulders, not too broad, not too narrow. I can try experimenting with some slightly wider shoulders next time. The cloth is a pretty standard medium grey twill, Gladson fabric. It's a four season fabric, right around 10oz.
