I don't think I have posted this many outfits in a row, but I am in the middle of figuring out what I want to do with my fits and stuff, and it's been very helpful, so thank you very much. If possible, I'd love some feed back on this also.
As always, thoughts on the combinations would be very much appreciated (maybe the stripe shirt is not the best choice, but I kind of like it).
Also I would like some opinions on my trousers. For those who don't read the noodles thread I am in the process of returning a lot of my trousers to the tailor to be altered, and I'm finalizing how exactly I want them altered. Right now I've decided to keep the length of the pair I wear here, but make it .75~ inch or 1 inch wider (it is 7.75 now, so I want to make it 8.5 or 8.75). As you can see in the photo, there is some bunching in the front which I think is caused by the way my legs are angled and my lower calves bulging and bunching the fabric at the back pulling the front unevenly. Anyone who is knowledgable, do you reckon increasing the width will solve this, or is there something specific about the trousers I should be fixing? I would like a straight falling leg that isn't way too wide.
If you look at one of the photos where I am not standing straight, the leg is straight at the front if it is bent, but it seems when I stand straight my legs are bent slightly backwards and the front wrinkles and doesn't fall uniformly. I ASSUME wider trousers would fix this (I am not just getting opening wider it will just be wider in general, from thighs downwards), but I am not sure? Could my legs just be shaped and angled strangely, or is this normal?
A good (or bad) thing is that I wear boots 80-90% of the time. Good is that I think this makes even slightly wider trousers not too big because boots are chunkier. Bad is that because I wear both boots and shoes that means I can't make my trousers perfect with both of them as I think arguably the optimal specifications would be different for boots and trousers. As per my previous fits I was wearing trousers that were too short for my monks, but I think are fine for my chukkas. Anyway, I think the length here (1 inch longer than my previous outfit) should do both adequately.
Jacket... well I kind of think this fits fine, but in any case I will have to wait half a year or more before I get back to the tailor in person to change anything. I think I will be letting out the previous 2 flannel db jackets, but this one I think is fine as is, but opinions welcome.
Anyway, thoughts appreciated, thank you very much for reading.
To answer your "help" part...
I'm quite honestly no expert, and relatively new / not very experienced around here. That being said, I think you're over-obsessing. Like many other things, there's a fine line in well-fitting clothes. Your pants appear to fit great. Don't sweat the microscopic details that only people closely analyzing a picture of you on StyleForum are going to notice. If people in real life won't notice, then it shouldn't matter.
Either way, good luck solving your issues!
