Light outside this morning so I tried a different shot today:

Just curious, how do you know that the jacket is too big in the body from that picture? I have one hand up that's causing the side to 'puff' up. I guess I see what you're saying, i.e. that it's making my hips look wider. I think the pockets look even bigger than they are because they don't have a 'flap cap'.
And on the note of shoes. I was really thinking that this getup called for black cap toes, but I didn't want to get mine totally gunked up with the grossness outside.
And hey, atleast I did a little better than yesterday! :p
Edit: I guess I have a few things I've picked up from thrift stores and the like. I need to start figuring out what actually fits well and is worth altering and start dropping the rest. That and starting to be a bit more picky from now on. That's what this feedback is great for. I'm 24, so my wardrobe is tiny right now. This advice is good for future building. That's solid right there. I.e. how to make the most of what I have now and how to build it up to be better.
Oh, I've definitely learned to pass over some things that I would have bought before. And part of my reason for posting here is that there a few gents on here who are quite well dressed. A lot of what some of the people here post is not my cuppa tea, but the look should have a place in every man's wardrobe. I've learned a lot about pairings and fit just since I started following this thread. Posting has already taught twice that much.
I'm not offended that my stuff isn't up to snuff. From what I see around me at work and in life, I dress better than a lot of the men I encounter including many that are 'dressed up'. So, I see this as a way to learn some of the important essentials and let those guide me into the future.
I mean, I bought some gaudy polyester ties that I thought were awesome earlier in the year. They're all super bright and are now reserved for nights when I go out dancing or such. That was a learning experience and these ones are even better.
Haven't tried this, but I'm going to say yes. Didn't know that this was a good way of checking to ensure it's not too big on the body. Kept in mind for the next hunt!
Edit: I also had health issues in the last spell and lost a lot of weight from not being able to exercise. I think I'll get a little fuller in the next six months and can evaluate in the interim. I doubt that the 'big through the body' issue will be solved by this though.
I totally forgot about corduroy appreciation day yesterday (11.11). It's never to late. Also, I'm still getting use to the white balance on my camera. All my pictures are coming out over exposed. Lastly, I oxi cleaned 4 shirts on Monday, removing a bunch of sweat stain build up. They were all either solid white or solid blue. I'm wearing them all this week to welcome them back to the rotation.
