Sir! The correct way to describe this fit is "Turtleroll and TASSEKS!" Please don't make this mistake again.

The hank is too flashy for this fit, and I think you'd look better with the jacket unbuttoned.

But the second photo illustrates why very very few people qualify to wear a paddock. The gut-emphasizing qualities of the bottoned lower button mean that only men like David can wear one. He looked okay because the guy, like you I believe, weighed about 95 lbs soaking wet.

 

Agreed, but I've a general prejudice against point collars. Do you've the same opinion about double breasted coats?

Perhaps you did not mean to, but you touched a point related to Politics, so I presented one of the most basic authors so that you could educate yourself with a different and very well regarded point of view.

 

@SB,

 

Nice outfit! The square is match-y, but you know this. Btw, is it really black and white or is the photograph off?

My camera died halfway through shooting.  These were the best shots I got.  The pocket square is pink gingham.

Are you apologizing for the setting and not for the fit of the jacket? I am not one of the more nit-picky people on here about fit, but I am sorry to say-that is not even in the ballpark.

For me, aesthetic success rises and falls with the lapel. Lapel width in relation to the wearers shoulder width, gorge angle, gorge height etc. ...

 

I actually quite like the jacket even though I would never consider wearing a paddock configuration myself, the only thing bothering me are the, as mentioned before, dated looking lapels.

 

Before:

 

 

After:
 

 

 

And again as an animation:

Thanks, VE. Yes, the hank is B&W.

Ok. Part of it is the buttons were being a bitch so that's with the bottom button buttoned. Got it working later, but not evidenced in that photo. Also I'm never gonna wear the seemingly painted-on tight jackets that get some love.

I co-sign the posts praising your photo of yesterday. Not sure the tie colour fitted with everything else but it was still a good outfit. And as for toda - even though I'm royally tired of seeing you in Black Watch, this is the kind of outfit I was alluding to in my lambasting the other day. The jacket is a bold statement but when the background colours are subdued and there is no matchy matchy, it looks 100 times better than what you usually do, as Shoog suggested, looking like your clothes were picked by five different people. I don't flatter myself that with recent posts you were responding to me in particular, but it doesnt matter - if you continue in the direction of the last couple of days and limit your tartan to zero or one piece per day and continue with similar other elements as you will have elevated your style far above and beyond your established norms. Anyway, credit where credit's due - well done!

OK, let me be perfectly clear: You are not being held to any ridiculous standard. That does not fit by ANY standard. Look at how far off the shirt collar is from the jacket collar just for starters. I could take pot shots and try to be clever, but honestly-you look like a teenager borrowing his dad's suit for a date. You can get a lot of help on this board that will improve your professional appearance, but you really need to face the fact that if you made a public appearance in something so ill-fitting you are either completely ignorant of the most minute basics of tailoring or you don't give a damn about your professional appearance. I am guessing it is the former.
