I think the shirt is the main reason, but the cobalt / turquoise overstripe in the jacket and the brown pants plus the shirt and tie just doesn't work. I would have worn a different coloured shirt, not something related-to-but-not-quite-pink, if you really wanted to wear than tie, or a different tie with that shirt (but ideally neither, together or apart). :)

 

Thanks for the feedback. The tie is indeed a bit on the bright side. But how is it not well-tied? Curious to know.

That's indeed precisely what I was about to write, hehe.

The process was great since Ive made some suits with him before. It takes approximately 3 months for a fully canvassed suit including fittings.There are only 2 tailors worth trying in Malaysia to me who will not rip you off and I have had the pleasure of making suits with both. 

 
They ,upon request, will shape canvass according to your shoulder line, and not use ready made shoulder pads. If interested, I can show you a picture of the shoulder line minus shoulder pads 

 

Next project is a royal blue H Lesser Lumbs Golden Bale and a light brown (almost grey) DB from Harrisons Conquest =)

This is a very casual napoli inspired 3/2 triple patch pocket shirt sleeve cashmere/silk blend jacket that I usually dress down. Curious how it plays with this cut away collar, formal Hober tie and silk square.

Excellent outfit Sir Well done.

 

Nitpicks: Pocket Square missing.

Thoughts: Tie could be 10mm shorter. Jacket lapel gorge is low but that is a style option. Collar and tie knot fit is awesome. Jacket and Trouser fit is also really good.

thats part of the friday challenge...no pocket square can be worn. My nitpick is the gorge seems a bit low.

Pulling off a fairly intricate shirt on an intricate tie is not easy.  Hats off to you!!  You've managed to use the width of the stripes on the tie to great effect against a small checkered shirt pattern.
