Got rid of the walnut bike toes for walnut pennies instead! (don't know why I love this color)
Square probably too matchy
Sorry for fewer pictures

I find the cool/warm mixes here jarring. The socks are especially incongruous and despite how much you love the color those shoes are working against the pants. I don't have a problem with the square, but that tie puts me off.

Wow, that much huh? Feels like I'm just shooting in the dark sometimes, and it probably looks like that to you guys every time I post. Figured I would pick something up by lurking a bit more. I thought pairing cool/warm balanced one another? Probably just too stark of a difference here then? I figured the tie was more bold so I tried to aim for safer solids with the rest. Also why I chose such a matchy square to avoid competing. Looking at it again, the shoes were probably a bit much. I swear I actually try to think and work at putting it together and it just falls apart evidently.

 

Regardless, GREATLY appreciate the feedback. Hope I can eventually refine my eye a bit more. Back to the drawing board. Thanks!!

 

P.S. I feel like these clothes fit me well, so I suppose that's an improvement! :P

If matching a tie and pocket square is frowned upon by ... well, everyone, I'm not sure how you continue to get away with all this. The jacket is daring of course but looks good and fits well. Paired with those khakis and/or gray trousers and other more demure stuff it would be a striking but elegant focal point, but when it competes with hat, gloves, socks, etc. it's just waaaaay too much matchy matchy and mish mash. I'm confident that I'm far from being alone in thinking this, but I imagine you're not getting much critique any more because a) you've improved on the peewee Herman sizing recently and b) people just accept that this matchy-matchy bollocks is 'your thing'. So the question now is, are you here to find the sweet spot between your own personal style and yet still take on board criticism to improve, or do you think you just look maaahvellous every day in your daily Black Watch Supervillain costumes and can't resist sharing it all with us?

I like the outfit, but we need him to burn the gloves and the hat (along with his 90's era pleated mom-jeans).

Wow! Thanks everyone for taking your time to write down such good feedback. I really appreciate it! :fonz:

 

The tie is from Marinella - and it's actually a bit more "madder dark redish/burgundy" than what comes across in most of my pics.

Is that a whole suit? Or just the pants and a leather jacket?
post #63613 of 78722
Nice looking leather jacket but shouldn't be in the same zip code as a shirt and tie, and that's before we even get to orphaned pinstripe trousers.

I am automatically envious of anyone who can wear a flat cap and it looks proportionate to their build.

 

 

Beige...
