Very nice Crat (especially the shine on those captoes!). However I don't like that collar shape. You seem to have a long, thin neck and the extreme cutaway of that collar just accentuates it. Then you are forced to employ a malnourished tie knot. And the high gorge lines up with the collar in a weird way. Basically the whole thing just doesn't quite work, because of that cutaway.

 

I would reconsider that shirt if I were you.

Not awful. I'd change the tie to something more casual as the jacket seems pretty casual in color and fabric (linen?). A knit would do the trick. The tie itself seems a little dated (the pattern). If you are so inclined, you could shorted the jacket sleeves a bit to show a little shirt cuff.

I want to like this. I like this in my head. But I've decided to make my distaste for cotton trousers into a (n irrational) thing. In terms of slightly more productive advice, the shirt is a bit busy to work with a tie...or at least a non-solid tie. But it does remind me that I want an orange tie.

I haven't yet delved into the issue of complexion, but I would be interested in hearing how you think I could improve this particular fit for my complexion. Thanks again.

I'm not sure how to improve, the others will be better at that, but what was said was true - it looks great on Connery because of his darker complexion. I'm not 100% but a light blue shirt might tone down the contrast a bit, instead of the white.

 

First of all, yout suit isn't as dark as it appeared on my crappy phone, so the contrast is less stark than I thought at first. Still, I think the contrast is too high and the lack of colour makes your skin look even paler than it is. I think ETB's advice for a blue shirt is a good one (he's also right about your likeness to Daniel Craig!). Go for a light but rather bright blue, it will make your skin look more vibrant and will accentuate your eyes. Perhaps pair it with a tie with rust or brown in it or so, anything that goes well with your  hair colour. As Alan Flusser writes, the object of your outfit should be to lead the viewers attention to your face. For example, have a look at pics of SF member Anden, he also has a pale complexion with somewhat reddish hair and I think he's a master at dressing to suit his complexion.

Great advice and nice photoshop job. That combo is actually a great improvement and it suits his colouring very well.

The camera angle is making the first jacket appear shorter than it actually is. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



I agree that the first jacket looks a tad bit short on you, but if it is longer IRL then it should be passable. The second jacket looks great, only (your) left sleeve looks a little short. Caught on a wrist watch? If not, I would lengthen the sleeve a little. Also, not a fan of french cuffs with tweed....

I will repeat the SF mantra - "Would look better with a light blue shirt". I also agree with Clags that the tie looks a little out of place with a casual linen jacket, it would work better with a suit.

Not feeling the shirt in this context, a solid would be much better.

Today: Test driving a new spring/summer jacket from Belvest that I picked up on eBay for basically pocket change. So far I am pretty satisfied with the fit right out of the box.

Thank you for the feedback. I have just bought the tie this morning so wanted to try it out. I agree the shirt is a bit busy, especially now looking at the close-up. What would you suggest as a better alternative?

Yes it is linen. Unfortunately I dont have any knits but I get your point.. The shirt unfortunately wasnt adjusted to show cuff but I promise it does.

I shall re asses. Thank you sir

Noted. Didnt quite look at the tie like that. Maybe I was just focusing on the colors. Will try again. Thank you

Violating one of the sacred rules of sartorialism - I'm wearing loafers with a suit today. Shame on me.
