Why the hell is everyone being such cunts to the op? From the pic, mmadha, you look just fine with a 1960s government guy vibe. It's hard to tell more than that from the photo because we really can't see a whole lot. Glasses work with the g-man vibe. I like chunky frames.

But no one with a decent sense of smell can mistake between the two.

If your question is are you overdressed, no unless your standard is pegged to what the rest of the world wears. For a law school ceremony suit and tie is appropriate. Not your fault if others don't agree. Someone posted pictures of a Brown graduation here last year and it was unbelievable- parents in shorts and t-shirts. I'm the last one to overdress but the bar is very low. That said, I don't seethe with hate on those who can't be bothered to dress up...which is another topic.

1. Your effort is outstanding, 2. You dressed appropriately for the occasion. 3. Your suit is fine, the pocket square needs some style. 4. The glasses give the impression that the wearer is a self conscious, self serving dweeb. Bringing up the Indian thing is rubbish and speaks to number 4. Totally irrelevant and self serving.

In my honest opinion--and please don't take offense--but I think your brother and friend look much better than you here. Even if they aren't decidedly style conscious, they look like they are being genuine and true to their character; you, on the other hand, look like you are dressed in a costume and are going to a Halloween party as a character from Mad Men. It just looks like you're trying to be something you're not. Style doesn't have to do just with clothing.

Is that really necessary?

No, I suppose it wasn't--even if it was only said in jest. My apologies.

+1 Thank you. It was just a joke.

I wasn't offended dude.

Thanks everyone for the advice and the congratulatory messages for my brother . I will definitely consider a new pair of glasses. I agree it is totally my fault for not providing a better picture. Just understand that most pictures were of my brother and the only pictures that feature myself have us both in the frame (remember it was his event not mine). However, my brother is significantly taller than I, so either the shot starts at my chest or the picture was taken without my jacket on. Hope that explains that.

Dammit. Too late to the party.

Agree, you look like you copy/paste some look from GQ/Esquire. You need to have your own style, don't listen to other people. Everyone has a different personality and look.

And avoid those big framed eyeglasses, you look line Leonard in the Big Bang Theory.
