HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 4243

Ah my mistake, I thought this was for posting any outfit one was wearing. Now I see why everyone thought they were giving feedback from a "traditional standpoint". My apologizes for posting in the wrong section.

What do you guys think? 

Shirt by Morris Heritage, cashmere tie by Luigi Borrelli and the split toes are Meermin Linea Maestro

Jacket look tight across the waist, there's a noticeable X around the button suggesting it has too much waist suppression. I think that is also why the quarters are pulled open so that tie and shirt peek through below the button (which is a look I don't like at all). There's also dome weird bunch around the arm holes - maybe sleeve pitch is off? I'm on my phone so it's pretty hard to see details, but that's what's my first impressions are.

Some won't like the open quarters, but I think it fits you well. The shape works for your sloping shoulders.

Here's what I went for today. Tried to keep in mind mktitsworth's advice:

 

 

Details (Click to show)

 

My thoughts (Click to show)
Tried to tone the trousers and socks down compared to the shoes
Went for light blue shirt to try and tone down the jarring contrast of the white in my last attempt
Tweed as the trousers changed to navy
Intended to try the green tie again but I opted for a wool as I thought it matched tweed better
Square: no clue what I'm doing here. Figured tan solid couldn't be too bad. Probably wrong.

Concerns:
Robo pose reveals I am VERY pear shaped. Not handsome at all in fact imo. Not sure how to minimize this in my wardrobe choices.
Trousers slightly long? As a rule I generally like a little break.

As always feedback and comments are very welcome. Also, feel free to ignore me if I am becoming tiresome. I'll keep trying.

Also, sorry to drag down the thread with poor fits. I know I like reading through pages of home runs too, but I find I learn the most by trying and failing rather than just reading. If you think my posts belong elsewhere please kindly direct me to the right thread.

Thanks!!!

Cashmere jacket, cashmere/wool tie and nice thick wool corgi socks in order to keep warm in today's cold weather.

I would have liked this better, if the socks were plain dark grey, and the cuffs were taller.

They're closed on the weekends, making it impossible for me to go there to fix it. Eventually I'll suck it up and pay another tailor to fix them.

Been away a few days.  First day back, with first new smaller-me stuff from the tailor: DB jacket in Harrison tropical weight 120s & cashmere.  Linen and cotton trousers with SF-friendly 2" cuffs.  New tie from Henry Carter and mad PS from Post Imperial.  Happy Sunday.
