I'm not against a popped jacket collar in its self, but in this case it just pushes the look into "top heavy" territory.
Having said that, amazing for someone who hasn't posted that thousands of fits that many regulars have.

Thanks for the very constructive comments! I should say, however, the jacket is a safari type jacket where the collar is intended to be worn popped. Maybe lay off the scarf next time...

Mr.K, no offense, we are in the same boat anyways, but shorts just don't work for us hairy legs guys.
I like the fit of your shirt a lot and the color combination of the whole ensemble is also very pleasing to my eye.

Apollotrader, I see the style you are going for and I like the individual pieces you picked for that reason but those trousers are just too wide in the thigh and have too much break in my opinion.

^^ I agree on the trousers especially after seeing the picture, they are new so I want to have them cleaned a few times before I adjust any further, thanks for the input.

First, off, apologies for being days behind the thread, but...

BTW Hendrix, I really do prefer the nerdy type (how fun is a girl you can't watch LOTR with?). Shyness is kinda boring though.

Thank you EFV. My GF (shit, fiancee... have to get used to that) loves LOTR/Game of Thrones/Star Wars/Star Trek, but no one would peg her for a nerd by the way she dresses and acts. I'm definitely the "shy" one (introvert) in the relationship. Our biggest style debates are that she doesn't like brown (including shoes) and that she likes monochromatic color palettes (one dominant color + neutrals). She also hates pleats and higher rise trousers, which I believe have their place. She always mocks me w/ the SNL Clint Eastwood "My Grand.... Torino" bit. (My argument: suit pants should be cut to look good with the jacket. It doesn't matter how they look on their own.) She also prefers symmetrical tie knots, but I just think that's her quasi-OCD.

In the end though, everyone has different perspectives on what looks good, what is sexy, what isn't.
If I was totally concerned with what turns girls on I wouldn't wear:
anything with broguing
anything brown
anything tweed
any pocketsquares
etc etc.
I'd just go around every day in leather jacket, slim jeans, and zip boots.
In the end, personal style is more important and attractive in it's own right.

There we go. Though she actually insists I wear a pocket square for the wedding. One of the other great debates is that I really want to wear a carnation instead of the typical "boutonniere" monstrosities you see today. ("But carnations are cheap!")

Of course, the fact is I didn't dress anything like this when we started dating. Tight jeans (which she now makes fun of me for), ridiculous "going out shirts", and plenty of man-jewelry.

And finally, I always thought "jawn" was Philly slang for basically... anything.

Congrats on the engagement. I'm trying to get my girl into GoT but she's not taking!

Yeah I didn't mean to say that noone is attracted to nerds (I'm a nerd myself so I hope not!), I was just pointing out that most people (particularly insecure people), say they like things that really they don't like at all.

It takes a really confident person to first understand what they like and then be honest enough to articulate it.

In the end we can only present as ourselves anyway...

Occasionally I sport a dress shirt and tie at my university. I'm not sure if this fits in better with the Men's Clothing or Streetwear and Denim style more. I'm wearing a tie just because, not because I needed to, necessarily. I enjoy wearing them, and they're quickly becoming a hobby of mine. I'm ordering a midnight blue grenadine from Sam Hober as well.

Dress shirt and tie sans-jacket is not a good look. You look like a waiter or a schoolboy.

Also, consider silk knits if you like skinny ties. For regular-shaped ties, at least 3" wide looks best imo (for what it's worth, I'm very skinny and I prefer 3.4-3.5" ties).

I'll keep that in mind. The Sam Hober tie I'm ordering is supposed to be 3 inches, as well. I think that will likely be the best versatile tie width for me. I own wider ties too, but I think past 3 1/4 inches is too wide for my tastes.

 

I normally just wear slim-fit polos and chambray work shirts with chinos. I guess the look I've sported today is an awkward in-between of casual and more formal attire that doesn't translate well for me, then.
