I dig the shirt and belt...a lot. I'm not feeling the suede with this fit, knowing you have a lot of cool casual leather laying about that would work a little bit better (for my tastes). Love that shirt brudduh.

I'm sorry but I disagree... Jack Purcells can fit anyone. And I think it looks really good on clapeyron

I think they look fine with this outfit...regardless of age.

39 is too old for Jacks?

Thanks...was gonna go with my #4 Atoms, but with the 80 degree temps they were predicting I figured I'd get some suede in while it was warm.

You're never too old for JPs.

I guess the last look will be polarizing because of the shirt. I like it, think the shirt looks good in its context (and got compliments from wominz at work about it so...)
As far as the pants, there's plenty of room in the waist (gotta wear a belt in fact, but the seat is tight and its unalterable, hence the pocket flare. )
Dude, I went to K-burg once with my brother when I was in HS, I thought my car (at that time a sup'ed up 89 Lincoln LSC) was going to end up on concrete blocks.
Today's fit contrast collar Blue Stripe OCBD, suede cap toes and navy chinos:

Great look. Tats are cool too. Never been brave enough to do any.

Thx. Less to do with bravery and more to do with youth, stupidity and idleness.

I have relatively thin thighs but fat calves. What works for my thighs usually doesn't work for my calves. Buying RTW trousers means roomy thighs, which produce a poor silhouette with my rather flat back if I wore a well-fitted shirt.
Buying RTW casual wear for me means sticking with certain brands, which may not be stylish. Even when things fit, they can't compare to tailored fit.
So, how do the best guys on the other side deal with this? Do they make things fit, make things look like they fit, keep looking until something that fits is found, or is streetwear just unkind?
I'd ask over there, but thought it might benefit the MC side more, and I might look less stupid.

If you're talking about button-up shirts (assuming you are), don't dart the shirts.  If the arm holes are too low and the body is too big, have your tailor open up the seem that runs along the side and under the arm, and reduce the amount of fabric there.  This will slim the sleeve, raise the arm-hole, and slim the body.

You get things tailored. Don't buy brands that are opposite to your body type. Different aesthetics have different brands with slightly different sizing to choose from.

Those shoes... bad idea. Shirt would look better tucked. And again, different shoes, even if you were younger, with those jeans.
