thank you kindly. SC is isaia. 100% wool. crepe kind if weave. got it from B&B, and i think the MOP buttons are the originals owners addition, not what the jacket came with. im happy he made the switch.

The fit of the jacket is excellent.  +1 for wider lapels.  Your tie is commensurate with your current lapels, but I'd also recommend a wider tie.  In the first two photos the tie knot looks rather small.  I think a wider tie would look better given your broad, sloping shoulders and better fill out the spread collar.

Yesterday's fit.  Round two with the wide lapels.  The waist suppression hasn't been done yet.

This is Firm BBQ Conservative Business Dress so no p-square.
My watch was playing a game with the left sleeve. 

A new hopsack is on the way for a little variation.

you're probably the only person I know that wears a half windsor without looking like a salesman or some random wedding dude

Thanks for the replies fellas'. I typically wear wider (3.5") ties but the lapels on this suit are more slender and call for a less wide tie to keep the correct proportions.

I absolutely agree that my big head and wide shoulders look better with wider lapels/ties.nod[1].gif I loved the drape and color of this suit so I bought it anyway and decided to buy a few accessories that work with it. Perhaps a short, pointed collar shirt would have been better with the slim tie?

Took a suggestion from another thread, tried yellow shirt / purple tie. Not sure how much I like this:

 

You need to go half Windsor; four in hand looks like a bolo on the red.  I like the red tie though.

No, he just needs to use a wider part of the tie for the knot. If he's got enough length for a half Windsor, he's got enough for that as well.

There's no reason for a half windsor unless you're Stitch and refuse to budge on it. 

 

Try a DFIH. Or one of those.. Reverse DFIH that have come to be my favorites (no, not a standard FIH... you start with the tie facing the wrong way, and the wide blade behind the thin blade, then wrap 1.5x, then thread like a regular DFIH; same moves and looks, not as much bulk).

Someone tell THIS dude that Windsors are awful:





So interesting that on last night's new episode they did a flashback ten years in the past where Harvey was less-experienced and successful and was still using four-in-hands. They have a really smart wardrobe designer on that show.

PS He has Donna as his secretary and you don't.

love that show. i believe that TF does all the clothing for harvey. i like most of it, but not all, and i dont particularly love his knots. but he is BOSS. great character.

I wish someone would tell him. However, he wears Tom Ford, which means large lapels and large pockets, so there is at least some balance. I feel he'd look better with a half-windsor rather than full--he looks a bit comical with a full.

 

What impresses me is the tailoring generally done on his shorter balding rival. I've only seen a few episodes, but generally his suits are cut very well (a much greater challenge than tailoring for the main character given their respective body shapes). He also wears a full windsor. And it also looks silly.

 

Bond also trumps Suits

Bond mistrusted anyone who tied his tie with a Windsor knot. It showed too much vanity. It was often the mark of a cad.

Great first post, especially if the trousers are a solid mid-grey. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I said this last time, but my impression is confirmed: you have a very nice sense of colour. Assuming the fit issues you mentioned do self-correct (though I prefer the amount of shirt sleeve showing on the left, and I don't actually think you need more waist suppression personally; in fact IMO it would be a mistake, exaggerating your hips too much), I think this is a nice look (though again, the collar is slightly low on you). Cinching/tightening up the tie just a fraction more would give the look a touch more life, compensating for the deliberate absence of a handkerchief. This is admittedly nitpicking; It's a good summer businessy look.

Another sunny day! Tie is dark brown; might not be obvious in the pic:
