Actually, just the opposite.

Angle is a bit off, but is the whole thing just too big?

cotton D, i fear that jacket is indeed too big. does not flatter you like your other jackets.
post #70923 of 78717

Thanks, IS. That's sort of what I was afraid of. Wonder if there is any chance in fixing it.

i doubt it. it looks to need so much work that even if it can be fixed, it would likely not be worth the expense.

shoulders look big, arms look big and too long, the quarters look too closed... its just too big all around imo.

Is that a Polo jacket?

I have two very similar ones, and they fit perfectly unbuttoned, but when fastened they are suddenly all out of sorts and don't lay right. The edges roll and all manner of stuff happens.

I agree yours looks too big, but it is passable when open, then when buttoned looks all out of sorts.

I've taken to wearing mine casually and open, sometimes with sweaters.

Square got a little wonky. C'est la vie.

CD, I was referring to the shirt sleeves, but I suppose that's moot.

Yesterday.  Shoes are beaters.  It's still nasty out, but I'm tired of wearing boots.

Ah, yes. In that case, you are correct.

I like everything but the tie here, it seems a little bright maybe? The particular shade of the pants is great, as is the cardigan.

You and shugz said the same thing about this tie the last time I wore it.  Any recs as to what it would look good with?  I actually had a brown/black glen plaid tie on and changed to this tie.  There is royal blue in the pocket square and I added the silk knot to tie it all in.  Oh, well.

Today.  The shirt is pink.

Thanks for the feedback; I was aware when dressing that this particular bar was a little wide for the tie--it's one of the slimmer ones I own, however the bar is the only one I have as I keep losing my smaller ones :brick:

 

For some reason I like the bars a little higher when wearing an SC, don't know why but I just like the look--just personal preference, I guess. I like the idea of creating a horizontal line in the chest area, it's a nice detail to me--as much aesthetic as functional. That being said, the placement was a little high--I did in fact lower it a little over the course of the day.

 

Again: thanks for the feedback--much appreciated!

Go with a black knit on this. Adding a pattern to this is incongruous with the textural variations that you're playing with. A knit side steps this. The black serves to ground and draw the eye to the middle, at which point things are balanced. This is the opposite of what that shiny blue on blue tie is doing. That tie looks so bright that it pushes my eyes away.
