Anyway, you've seen this before:

(white silk squares aren't gauche, right? right??)
 

 

I like it, and I reckon it will generally get a lot of positive feedback here.

 

(I'm going to assume it has the following colours: white jacket, shirt & square, black cotton trousers, dark grey or black boots?)

 

If so, the fit is pretty much a modern & more informal interpretation of a tropical/white dinner jacket outfit. Which, given the context of having a drink, is pretty much great. It makes sense. The actual fit of the jacket, trousers and shirt are all good, from what we can tell. Depending on the finish (it's not clear from the desaturated pic) I might suggest that the boots are a bit too relaxed for the fairly sharp rest of the fit, but it's not glaringly so, and various other elements of the design of the other items is consistent with an informal look. Taking it all in together as an ensemble, it's a fun & striking twist on an old outfit, that works great in the context you're wearing it. Good stuff IMO.

Thanks, Foxx. I guess that tie is just too red for a lot of people. I was thinking of doing a black pindot tie. Then, I would've looked like a funeral director.

Rudals - while I am not in love with the red tie, I certainly don't hate it.

as i said in SWD, i think it looks great. would love to see the actual colors though.

Thank you! The colors are: Cream jacket, white shirt, white square, navy blue cotton trousers, grey/green canvas-over-leather boots. For me, exceedingly formal.

Quite a warm day for November 1st here in NY.  Feeling a little springy.

I love the shirt, tie, sweater, jacket combo.  I would have gone with a different pocket square though.  I think something more solid would look better.

This is a decent stripe on stripe look.  I think the tie knot could use some work though.  I'm not a fan of windsor knots, but can appreciate them.  The double dimple looks a bit sloppy.

Interesting scarf knot.  Looks almost like a tie knot.  It seems like there's a lot of fabric in the pants cuff.  I think it would look better if there was less material.

I appreciate any feedback you have to give, good or bad. After all, thats the main reason I started posting in this thread - to learn. But so far I haven't gotten more than maybe one or two comments in either direction. Thumbs up are very nice to get and all, but not very educating (not meaning you should stop with the thumbs up!!) I am haunted by the comment someone gave the_villain or mikael some pages back, that "most bad fits are just ignored"...

 

Cheers!

I like your fit.  The collar seems to curve outward oddly.  I would recommend collar stays.  The pocket square is a bit overexposed.  Push it in some more.  Besides that looks good.

You almost made me eat yesterday's words with this one. Jacket, tie (don't do that, you know better), belt, strides and shoes all look good. Shirt, square and socks took it over the edge. You don't have to fully abide by 'red and green should never be seen', but there's a reason why these cliches get started and the green tie clashes with the reds and there are too many patterns with the shirt, square and socks. Maybe a navy tie would have brought this all together?

I like AAS "took it over the edge" outfits a lot. It´s his style and it´s unique. It´s much more interesting than the constantly recurring monochromatic navy odd sports coat/grey flanell trouser outfits (which I post from time to time too, because it´s a little bit boring but still a good and classic look). I think with his outfits he express a little bit of his more extrovert personality and maybe he do not want to dress "boring"?
