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 all of the great feedback on my last post, guys!

My responses here (Click to show)

On the jacket, I realized the sleeves are a bit short but I really like the material and look of it. My tailor said that there is nothing left to be let out in the sleeves. Is it too egregious to salvage, should I abandon it? Or perhaps continue to wear it with shirt sleeves slightly shorter?

 

On the shirt, I never realized how bright it seems to look until you pointed it out. The pattern and weave is roughly similar to an ocbd, and I thought I would use it as a fill in. After your comments I looked at it again and it almost has a satin like finish. I may just get rid of it . . .

 

On the pants, I did not at all notice how long they look. I may try them another time with suspenders and see if sitting a bit higher on my waist doesn't smooth them out. If that doesn't work I may just ditch them also.

 

On the socks, I wouldn't have had them photographed if I didn't want them critiqued! I just recently walked out of the always match socks to trousers mindset and am muddling through how to incorporate "fun" socks well. Also unsure about brands and common "staple" styles. I will continue to research these.

 

On tonight's outfit: I just got a suit back from the tailor today and thought I would give the "Friday Challenge" style a shot! I tried to keep in mind the great advice I recently received! Hated to wear the same shoes again but I thought they filled the casual suit role well.

Its bespoked and fabric is from Drapers Golden Selection. Bespoked here is quite cheap, USD500 for a fully canvassed suit (excluding fabric).

Gods, I had heard bad things about Malaysian tailors, but 500 for a suit that nice is truly impressive. How was the bespoke process?

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.
