I usually don't criticize peoples outfits but that's suit doesn't fit you well. I would love to help with what alternations that needs to be done to make it better.

Blazer: M&S
OCBD: Brooks Brothers
Tie: Tie Rack, Italy
PS: Riess (swapped for a different PS before I went out)
Trousers: Hackett
Socks: Ralph Lauren
Chukkas: Loake

The cut on those pants is awesome. I really like this fit, sans the square. That orange/white palette doesn't fit with the tie at all. And because I think that tie works well, I'd opt for a different square.

Thank you! The pants are Hackett Military Chino. Totally agree with you about the square...I swapped it for a brown & white linen before stepping out into the wild :)

1. Don't rely on the stated collar sizes when adjusting the length. You have to experiment a bit to get each different bow tie to its optimal length for your particular physical features.

2. But don't be too careful when actually tying it; with the exception of formalwear, bow ties look better when they a little bit louche.

1. I find I have to adjust 1-2 slots depending on the specific shirt, too. Usually if the front part is bigger than the back, that means the tie is too short, and if the back part is bigger, that means the tie is too long.

2. The only things to worry about when tying a bow are that the ends of the ties are even (so the knot is tied over the center of the butterfly) and that the bow overall is not crooked. No need to fuss over the blades and loops lining up exactly.

IMO nothing about it that can't be accounted for by body shape and movement.

Dang, shirt sleeves got caught up in my jacket sleeves; wish I'd caught that, and tugged them down.   Might also try not to look up into the ceiling next time.  Oh well.  Here is my inaugural entry for a Friday Challenge!
