you have improved, man. Remember how in the past you liked to put on a bunch of solid colors? That made your outfit look so boring. Now you have changed in this outfit,  I see that at least you have an attention-grabber-----a striped shirt.

 

Just my two cents, maybe you could change the color of the cardigan, use a contrast color against navy blue for the cardigan, and a neutral color for your shirt.

IRL this tie isn't that saturated.
IRL the shirt texture works with the jacket you just can't see it
Trust me my pants fit perfectly, I was just moving/stretching/breathing so they just look tight.

I'm just sick and tired of seeing all this justification. If you are gonna post fit pics then take your lumps and stop trying to let every one know you really do know the rules/fit etc and it simply looks like you don't. If someone points out something that is dead wrong, what's wrong with letting it lie? Maybe your cuff was caught up on your shoe, who cares, you know the length is right and make sure your cuff isn't caught up next time . . .

The best dressers on here let there pics do the talking more often than not. Maybe I'm being over the top, but this gets to me so bad.

End rant back to regularly scheduled program

I don't see it as justifying. I pointed out the collar gap, rtc checked it in the mirror and let me know it wasn't like that in real life. It shows active participation, and I quite enjoy the discussion. We all know photos can distort things sometimes, so I like it when someone clarifies something, or corrects me when I'm wrong.

If I understand you correctly you'd rather have it that everyone just ignores the posts and let the pictures do the talking? I love the discussions that sometimes ensue, and if we all just ignored the criticisms and other posts this would become a boring place. I guess it all depends on your point of view. I see it as active participation, you as justifying.

just below my navel when worn with braces. I still have a moderate break.

Fair enough, break is a personal preference. I prefer no break with cuffed trousers, and a little break with uncuffed trousers. I like the clean straight lines.
A medium/full break is rarely seen on SF. It's a little underrepresented, so please go ahead and post some pics! It's always nice to see differing styles of dress.

I don't mean to insult you or your style - I just don't understand the no break or even sock-exposing inseams. I'm glad you wear your trou so high. I will NEVER go back to wearing them on my hips or slightly above. I don't have a smart phone or camera(...yup) but I wear mine like this but with a larger opening(I like half of the shoe or more & 1-1.5 cm longer for the break. 2" turnup as well:

I like that picture a lot. I suppose adding about 1-1.5cm makes for a slight break, which looks great too!

The suits is made by Bntailors in Korea. I am really enjoying my commissions from them of late.

 

I've not tried any LL cloths- maybe it's time.   Bntailors is the bomb. love their site.  and explains why your cuts are always so good.

Indeed, it's a great example of why navy odd trousers have a place in classic menswear.
