+1, although I think the jacket is just a wee tad short.

 

Nice that he kept the DB jacket buttoned while seated. Apparently this is "correct" for DBs. Anyway I read somefink to that effect.

Yes. Unbutton your SB but keep your DB buttoned.

Generally, I love this - and also the pictures with your family - I seem to remember you posting some very cute picture of your boys here a while back, right? You come across as someone who is totally confident in your own style and the clothes fit you well. However, equally as much as I love everything else, I hate the belt buckle. Seriously hate it. You just don't need it. It shouts 'brand' and this undermines the confidence of everything else. I think you would be much better off with a still high quality but much more understated, brand-less belt and buckle

 

Funnily enough, I don't have the same feeling about Mickael's LV case, largely because anything less showy would make his fit vulnerable to ordinary criticism, and it's so dedicated to its particular vibe that it's rather beyond that...

Dude point dexter, use the damn spoilers. For someone like me who try's to catch up lurking this thread, I don't need to see family photos x10 x2!! I must say I do like the family photos, thanks for sharing.

Don't nip the waist. See how the less shaped jacket makes you look much less pear-shaped, even though you usually take pics at an angle prone to do so. Plus, suppressing the waist doesn't always work as expected and you risk making it not fit as greatly as it does now!

No, they are just regular flap pockets, no patch. Where are you seeing the patch pockets? :confused:

+ 1 on AAS leaving the SC as is.
post #61028 of 78723
AAS, I agree with the others, leave the SC as is, it looks great.
Also, while SC, pants and tie are well chosen and while I can realise that bit loafers might just simply not to my taste but fine for this picture, the shirt definitely is not.
Please kill it with fire, it ruins the whole look.

I actually thought the shirt made it great, very distinctive and unique. I'm a big fan of navy blazer / tan trousers, but I think we all need to make it our own in some way -- and though I might not wear that shirt, it works well for AAS.

Each to his own.
If AAS feels fine, that is all that counts.

Personally, I think certain combinations are classics for good reasons.
The shirt, just like those preppy/madras pants that were posted some days ago, just try too much and are too much into peoples' faces.
Style to me is about simplicity and understatement.

Have a look at the followin pictures, those are casual outfits done right in my opinion. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

That tie is absolutely fabulous Pliny! Like everything minus the socks, which are bright enough, relative to the rest of the ensemble, to almost blow out my monitor eek.gif

This.

 

I pinned the middle image (I use Pinterest and not Tumblr despite being a male. It's for my own reference and it seems like an easier way to store images. The only thing I pin are you guys :embar:)

 

(and myself. I'd forget fits I'd like if I didn't)
