Maybe. And that's a BIG maybe. Those orange pants really call for something either very very light (e.g. white, light light blue, light cream, etc.), or something in the dark spectrum. Its definitely the mustard color of the jacket. I don't know how it looks IRL, but the photo is very clashing. Also not a fan of that #8 shell color with orange, but that's more my personal preference.

Ah ok because I have a camel colored sweater that I wanted to wear with a similar shade of pants. Maybe I should go with a dark brown or dark grey instead? I do have a white/off-white lambswool i could also try.

I like your approach.

One thing I'd like to see from you is to try an untucked shirt underneath your motocycle jackets. A tee would be the easiest option, but also I think most of your sport shirts would be fine.

The reason for this is that the cropped nature of the motocycle jacket tends to cut you in half. yeah, it makes your legs look longer, but the contrast is just a little too jarring.

A long tee or untucked sport shirt (e.g. flannel) peaking out underneath helps break up the proportions a bit better.

Put it on and post a pic. You don't have to wear it out of the house just to test out the look.

I really don't like shirts or jumpers peaking out from underneath motorcycle jackets, even with their short nature. I might just have to get over it though but somehow it seems untidy to me.

I generally agree with this. Shirt extending down past the jacket is usually a no-go, although I don't mind it with very cropped denim jackets and the sort. Could work.

I'll contribute with my take on the leather motorjacket.

As for "brands" of bow ties, I don't think you can go wrong with any maker's offerings. Go for the color and pattern is appealing to you. The tie in this picture is all wool and is not easy to maneuver into a nice knot. Perhaps stick with a silk tie for starters. Brooks Bros, and others, sell grenadine bow ties which are easy to handle and make a nice knot. Of course, IMO, a bow tie ought not look too perfect.

Just a note for anyone thinking about venturing into bow ties.\

I've been wearing bow ties for the past few years and I think for anyone wanting to get into them they should also make sure that the height or width of the "wings" is a proper size compared to their head/body. I have a few bow ties now that I deem unwearable because they are too tall or wide.

And thus we see the source of any and all criticism of fit nuances.

Fattyness.

Had this sweater combo pull double duty yesterday. Casual during the day, more dressed up in the evening at a nice place to eat. New sportcoat, Boglioli. A little more extended shoulder than I normally get but I am starting to enjoy the look better on me as I believe it balances me out a bit more, though I wouldn't find feedback. Sorry for cruddy pictures. I have no way to take full body snapshots with the cell phone at the moment.

looks good but I think you need a higher collar that stands a bit taller above your jacket
