Actually had to look this one up. Interesting that you should know about such things. Maybe I need to up my urban sophisticate game.

thank you, A. yeah, i do love those suede bad boys to death. i will say though that they are not as foxxy red as they look in the pics, but they always end up looking that way, but apparently not everyone likes them as much as me regardless. more importantly though, im glad you found my footwear choice better here.

oh, im adding some darker chocolate suede kicks to my collection soon, so yeah, that is good. smile.gif

Boglioli cotton jacket
Finamore cotton shirt
Ralph Lauren Purple Label silk tie
Random cotton paisley PS
Hierbas de Ibiza
Martin Dingman blue alligator belt
J. Crew Bowery oxford cotton pants
Lodger blue suede + pebble grain loafers

 

The light blue in the pocket square looks out of place surrounded by all that navy.  A solid white or white/navy would look better.

Another explosion of color for me this week

(I wish I had AAS eye for color)

 

 

I would like to have the forums opinion on this suit. 

Almost everyone I meet has those slim fit suits and I'm starting to wonder if this looks dated.

It is from 2009 and the pants are double pleated.

Hard to say from the photos, especially since you have your hands in your pockets. But the suit looks perfectly fine to me, far better than some of these skinny suits that have been fashionable in recent years.

IMHO pleated trousers is not necessarily a more dated look than flat-front trousers and which trousers you prefer (should) depend what suits your build and that flatters you most. I tend to prefer pleated pants because I have rather large thighs and the pleats allow for enough room over the thighs with out causing the trousers to have a lot of weird folds when sitting down. Flat front trousers often look ridiculously tight on me or, if they are fine over the thighs, have all kinds of folds and excessive materials that bunch up when sitting down.

the images are updated :)
I have the same problem but have trouble finding pants with pleats where I live.

Thanks for the feedback

"Slim fit" is quite relative and subjective. I agree with Pingson and think your suit is fine as it is, pleats and all. You could perhaps taper the trousers a smidgen, which might get you closer to the look you're after.

At any rate, wear a belt. I dislike belts with suits, but if your trousers have beltloops, you need one.

Calypso, I think that the square provides a little too much pop relative to the sedateness of everything else. Had there been something else slightly less sedate (though not as eye catching) somewhere else in the fit, I think it would have worked better. It could be more color or a pattern somewhere.

 

Definitely not dated looking.

NYI, colours are lovely, but I am not a fan of peaked lapels on what is clearly a casual jacket (casual fabric, patch pockets) - seems incoherent to me. And oh, you forgot to buckle you shoes nod[1].gif

 Perhaps you could have the legs tapered slightly -  lotta room from the thighs down.

 

 

Lovely jacket. Nice tie.

I missed the back rise measurement, when I put the measurements on the Luxire page, by one inch. :facepalm:

Those trews rok, but not with this jacket so much.  Calls for slightly more textured IMO

You're getting the DB tapered at the waist  IIRC?
