(Sorry, couldn't resist.) Seriously, though, it's great to see someone your age trying to work a look that doesn't involve baggy shorts that hang down to his butt crack. I throw my vote in with those who've advised you to swap out suits for SCs and blazers (just for the time being, that is) and to move away from the gangster vibe. An easy way to do that is by putting dark ties on light shirts instead of light ties on dark shirts. I also want to see a little shirt cuff poking out of each jacket sleeve next time you post here, young man.

Welcome.

Hahaha, thanks.
I agree...lots of young men dress like trash these days. I guess I'll just leave my suits in the closet for now. Aww, move away from the gangster vibe? Never! On second thought, I think I'll save that for parties and such. I tried to have a little shirt cuff poking out....but it didn't stay that way. Maybe the sleeves are a bit too long.

Okay, here's a more zoomed out look.

Well, besides everything everyone has already said about the fit, combination of colours and so on, I think it's great that you go for what you like. I mean, I didn't start wearing DB suits until recently, and I'm probably twice your age. As others have said: Stick around, keep posting, learn from the comments, improve, yada yada. Learning to dress properly will give you hell of an advantage when you're out of school, looking for work.

I'd replace the Nike running shorts with Ambrosi flannels, otherwise sounds good.

Gnatty I dont get the gingham shirt and dotted tie. It would look a lot better with maybe a plain light blue shirt and a darker blue and brown tie, or maybe even one for your beautiful bowties.

Welcome! Looks pretty solid there. Recommendations:

1. With your face shape, which is a bit more oval/long, you might consider balancing it out with more of a spread collar, which is also a bit more modern.
2. 'round these parts folks are generally fond of showing a little of the ol' shirt cuff. Either your jacket sleeves are a bit long, or your shirts are a bit short. I suspect it's the former although it may not be worth tailoring since it's not too long by very much.

+1 on these, also practice your knot tying skills. Take a look at some of the pics in this thread for inspiration on how a nice FIH should be shaped, dimples etc. Some wider spread collars (yours looks a bit loose, too) and a nicely tied knot are very easy steps that improve your outfit tenfold.

Very solid first post, though. Jacket fits pretty well. Keep it up!

these photos are from yesterday, my high school graduation (after removing my ugly poly robe and mortar board). Faces are obscured. The braces are thurstons, gut ends, purchased at an antique store. The jacket is not a suit, but in fact a pinstriped SC. I wear various odd trousers with them, such as charcoal. any recommendations? I am using an antique pearl and gold tie tac (grandfather's) and the gold-filled cufflinks I picked up for $3 at an antiquew store.

Yes, the jacket is a bit on the short side, as goes for the sleeves. It's an old favorite RL blazer that I don't want to depart from as of yet though. The tie is a bit askew in the first pic. The khaki's could have been more well pressed and I should really change the shoelaces to a more brownish pair.

Besides all of that, I'm in love with every piece of garment covering my body today, and as I understand people are interested in brands and so on:

Jacket - Ralph Lauren Polo
Shirt: Tommy Hilfiger
Tie: Knitted wool-, mohair- and alpacca mix.
Watch: Vintage Jules Jurgensen
Belt: Torino
Pants: Re-tailored Dockers
Shoes: Carlo Mazzanti (A quite unknown Italian shoemaker)
Pocket square: Unknown brand, got it from my grandmother a while back. Might have been my grandad's when he was still alive.






I own the exact same blazer. Great quality.

Great to see that I'm not the only younger person who does not dread wearing suits. I'd say perhaps reverse the shirt/tie color and consider a square.

Haha, there are very few of us...that's for sure. If only younger people would learn to dress better...Are there any pictures here of your suits?

also aeglus, like the fit, but i think a different shirt would look better. Maybe just a lighter or darker grey, that shade just isn't working for me. Dig the jean fit though, and dope jacket of course!

Got my hours cut at work so I've been mostly doing streetwear looks but here's one from a couple days ago. Too lazy to do a full shot. New pocket square, and the cheapest tie I own, care to guess what brand is is?


Perry Ellis?
