Even if it was a nice solid color, button down collars and three piece suits that aren't made of tweed usually seem incongruous to me. The collar gap is astounding, although it's hard to tell if that is just because it is unbuttoned and you are standing that way. Something makes me suspect not, though. Overall a pretty tortured look. Although if it makes you feel any better you look way better than a guy in here named "the villain".


Collar gap is due to stance and my arm around my girlfriend pushed up against me to the left which is obviously pushing the jacket right/bunching. 

Unfortunately, I don't have any other pics with the jacket on, that was the best I had.

I wish collar gap was the only problem with this fit.

Care to elaborate? 

I'm honestly interested.

Was this ^^^ not a sufficient jumping off point? I addressed several issues.

Your last comment made it seem like you had more to offer...

I don't think it's nearly that bad. YES, if you have another suit, i'd definitely get wider lapels, because it looks more classic, and would fit your frame better.

But overall, add a blue spread collar shirt and a white pocket square and you have a pretty good first try.

Is this a universal thing? I kind of want a midnight dinner suit with black peak lapels, but I think most of them are so wide as to look clownish on my 40L self.

I don't know what you want out of somebody's first post. His pant's aren't crazy tight, has reasonable shoes, and a three-piece suit without shirt showing between pants and vest. Besides the collar gap (which may not be a problem), and wimpy lapels it's certainly not the worst suit ever posted here.

Universal is a funny term. Is it universally unliked? No. And a thinner lapel might just be more proportionate on you. What I think gets a lot of hate from people around here, including me, is the super skinny "fashion" lapels. I can't say what would look proportional on you, but I'd rather be on the wide side, than the skinny side when it comes to peak lapels especially.

My rule remains: Come up with a joke on my name that I've not heard before, and I will buy you a beer.

Fair warning, it was approximately three years between my last two beers.
