Hopefully todays jacket fits even a little better. If not I may just have to become a nudist hermit, take a vow of silence and survive only on juniper berries

@DonCologne You appear to have really dialed-in the style you prefer. I have a question, though. Are you naturally very square shouldered, or do you prefer very structured shoulders? I know that the vintage Oxxford suits you like are often that way, but I think a softer, more sloped and more natural shoulder would look good on you.

I have both very structured shoulders (The whole Oxxford stuff and I think the american sack cut is good for people with a little bit more on the hips) and softer ones (Some sports coats and suits from Corneliani, Caruso, Zegna which fits also well).

shoulder, chest and collar (no collar gap) seems ok but I think you could benefit from wider lapels.

It seems the jacket is a little bit to tight in the waist, because the lapels makes a small "O" instead of the "V" it should.

:eek:

 

I really like what you are trying here, but those pants strike me as VERY country. I think everything needs to go that direction a notch to match (the jacket feels like it's there however).

 

Shoes: I would go to a blucher in pebble grain.

Tie: Something with some texture, this one feels too smooth to me.

Shirt: This really needs to be a plain oxford IMO preferably a rough mottled blue one

 

I really like your effort here. Please keep trying.

@luv2breformed Thanks for the suggestions - I was trying to focus mainly on colors but I see what you're trying to describe. I've still yet to get a pair of bluchers *gasp* (i know)

I'll keep 'em in mind next time I throw these pents back on!

For a color suggestion, I think a square with a dark forest green base would look great here. The jackets seems fairly middle in tone, so I think it would contrast well enough. Additionally, it wouldn't look like to the trained eyes that you took the "easy" cream silk route. However, it's a nit.

Betel, that's awesome, is that a suit?

Shoe artist might be the new LabelKing. Careful.
