Ed, is that a suit? Fabric looks great.

Deets on shoes?

Today, inspired by AAS fantastic recent monochrome fit. This one isn't monochrome, but it's certainly inspired by the fit he put together:

Thanks, any recommendations for what to wear it with?

Thanks; it feels much the same, which I suppose must be the most meaningful kind of progress, as the changes feel natural enough not to be noticeable to me.

 

Having said that, when I look back over, say, a couple of weeks-worth of photos from this year, compared to last year, or two years ago, or compared to 5 years ago, I do notice the changes then.

It looks like chocolate brown? Definitely one to combine with odd jacket & trousers, as you've done, but I think it might play better with, say, tan cavalry twill or chino trousers and a greeny/brown/olive plaid jacket. White or cream shirt (maybe a tattersal), plus a knit or wool tie, in some earthy colour (maybe even a dark orange?)

This first pick looks really nice if not a little somber. So you truly are becoming a man of the cloth?

Thanks for the advice! The colour is called peat, it's a brown with hints of charcoal and grey in it, so not exactly chocolate brown, but the colour is a bit hard to capture.
I'll try a different combination tomorrow!

More Pics (Click to show)

I started out with the suit. It was fitting for Sunday, and I have really been wanting to wear it. Next I chose the shirt. It is very pale pink which I thought might clash with fall/winter but figured it was fine as a shirt. I really chose it for the collar anyways. Next, I chose the tie. I struggled with about 6 different ties before I finally settled on this one. First, I had a wool blend that was gray/navy. I really liked it, but it's base was gray and didn't contrast enough with the vest. I even tried it with a blue square to try and make the navy pop more, and it was somewhat effective, though it felt forced. Next, I tried a handful of reps/neats all with a navy base. I even tried on a blue grenadine. Most of them felt liked they worked but weren't as happy with the shirt in one way or another. I finally settled on this deep purple/navy one with a lighter neat pattern and some subtle stripes. The square felt like the perfect compliment as it's base is close to the pattern in the tie without feeling matchy to me. I finished it off with my walnut blucher boots due to the weather. However, I felt like they didn't work with the palette at all. I found myself wishing I had black balmoral boots, or monkeyface's black/navy boots. The snow wasn't too bad, so I swapped into black captoes. These picked up on the black pattern in the square also.

Several thoughts (Click to show)

I thought my gray overcoat would finish it all well and threw on my gray fedora also. I actually hadn't planned on a particular scarf, but this one felt like it hit the palette perfectly.

I'm curious about the fit of the suit and/or overcoat. They feel good to me, but my eye is still developing.
Pink shirt didn't feel like it matched the weather; however, shirtings are typically lighter color anyways, so it didn't feel too off.
Can I wear a knit tie with a 3 piece? I tend to think of them as odd jacket ties but may be wrong here. If so, I may have had an easier time selecting a tie.
I LOVE this overcoat but fear that it may be too much? Buttons everywhere, shoulder things (epaulets?) and some funky chest piping. Curious how others feel.

Thanks for reading all my long ramblings!

 

Very, very nice fits.  Especially a fan of that brown tie.

Thanks! I'm not exactly sure where I want to go with my degree. That was the original plan. However, I am really enjoying the academic side of the studies, so perhaps I will pursue doctoral work instead with the aim at becoming a professor. I am getting my Masters in Theological Studies which should be a pretty versatile degree lending itself to either path.

For context: this is for our corporate sales meetings. Mostly at banks. Mostly in NYC. The sales meetings involve: assessing what the needs of the client are, making a recommendation for what kind of project we should do, and getting agreement from the client to proceed. I need to look professional, serious, and competent. The work we do involves design and a lot of people skills, so I need to represent some style and personality as well.

 

 

Hi! Take everything that I say with a grain of salt as I am still a brand newb, but these are some things I noticed:

 

Self-striped suits are not well liked here. It is said that they look "cheap". I don't think it looks too bad, but you can probably do better. In addition, it appears to be a tad too tight/small. In the front shot, you can see some pulling near the two buttons and the side view shows that the vent looks open/not at rest. It may only be a little bit, but it seems too tight to me. Pants seems pretty good. They could maybe be brought up 3/4 inch or so to give less break, but I don't think it's too bad as is. The cuffs look wimpy to me. I would either go no cuff OR increase the cuff to 2".

 

The tie is likely the worst part of the fit. Red ties are also not well liked. Also, those tiny stripes are not encouraged either. Get a few ties with a navy base. I would do a grenadine, a knit, and a small patterned. If you like red get a deep burgundy. Also, a brown small patterned could mix it up for you. When you tie your tie make a dimple in it also!

 

I think your shirt needs more spread to the collar.

 

I like your pocket square, but not with this tie. If you change the tie as suggested above the square is likely good. In this fit I think I would prefer a simple white linen. Remember you want the square to tie into something else in the outfit, but not the tie ideally.

 

I like your shoes.

 

Please remember I am being nitpicky. Overall I think you look pretty good. Also remember I may be wrong because I mostly have no clue what I am talking about. But I hope this gives you a few things to ponder.

Love the shoes sir!

Man seeing all the gorgeous duffle jackets on this thread are making me really want to swing for one. My current jacket is a gap peacoat that is certainly starting to show its age and I like the styling of duffles but man they are everywhere right now!

why stop at samples? I want an app for  full body scan followed by  a 3D printout of a suit in a cloth of my own design.  On second thghts, holographic clothes?

hi Noah  looks pretty good on the whole.  My observations re: how this could be better-

 Fit: jacket's tight in the waist, causing the rippling on either side of the middle button and pulling the vents open at the back;  shoulders may need more slope too-  too square and they too can cause ripples under the arm; shoulders too wide, causing that hollow at the top of the sleeve in the profile shot; sleeve pitch may need to be moved back if poss, u have rippling along the back of the upper sleeve; front/back balance is out causing the 'tailcoat' look;  trousers could be shortened for less break.

Style:  fasten middle button not top is the convention; square and tie are  matchy;  square is too ostentatious for buisness- white linen's the go.  good first post :satisfied:
