Your combination of shirt, tie, pocket square is good to go.

Adjustments: Your shirt collar appears to loose - you need a smaller neck size. Your tie knot is a bit large and could use a dimple. Pocket square could be more aligned with the angle of the top of the pocket (or use a looser fold which can be more loosely aligned.) To me, the very simple TV fold you've used is fine but I prefer it when this sort of fold aligns pretty much exacly with the top of the pocket.

Carry on!smile.gif

I definitely agree with the rest - but I don't think the PS has to be aligned. Personal preference, I suppose, but not aligning it is an exceptionally easy opportunity for sprezz.

You're true about the neck size. Problem is, S sized shirts tend to have sleeves that are too short for me so I have to settle with M.

I'm aware of the rather bulgy knot. Believe it or not, that was my second attempt ever in tying a tie so I had no idea how to reduce the size of the knot, let alone creating a dimple. Maybe I should try small knot instead of FIH? FYI, that's a knit tie.

Never mind the pocket square. I actually intended it to align with the pocket but it just wouldn't sit right :/

You can't really get a smaller knot than a FIH. Just tug it (lightly) a little lower to tighten. Couldn't see it was a knit tie - that does make it a bit harder to have a compresses knot.

For a full critique you should post a full length picture.smile.gif

What colour is that suit? Tealy-grey? Interesting to compare this to the one kevinsp8 posted a while back. I think it shows what difference a more conventional cut and less vivid shade makes. I still don't really like the colour much, but the outfit works very well on its own terms I think.

Shirt looks nice and relaxed, and the shoes look great too. I find myself wondering if maybe pale grey trousers would be better than the off-white my monitor translates these as. In fact, something in the same colour range as Butler's suit would work well as trousers here I think!

 

(PS. consider x-posting to the MC Casual thread if you feel like it)

the db isn't a great fit on him ... yes, but i don't even know how the above applies. now people can tell whether a person has gravitas or otherwise from a few posted pics on a message board?

lol.

Nice, clean look. The tie is the loser. Try a simple, solid burgundy tie with a neat, crisp linen white pocket square.

100 degrees outside and damn chilly at work laugh.gif

Went shopping so new khakis, cardigan and got the FU tie at Goodwill. Too bold?

I feel like I should start wearing all RL and enroll in an expensive prep school. Also, next level color matching with the iPhone case and tie, lol

I'm glad you got a nice pair of shoes. Now you need to get a couple decent looking ties. Your fit is good, but I'd like to see more shirt cuff while standing straight. Alter the sleeves a bit to get it right.

I love your posts, Butler. Would you consider adding at least one closeup per post please, especially one that shows your tie and PS? Thanks.
