disagree with all. the shades and the shoes work for me.

It is well known that such shoes worn with a business suit denote the seriousness-of-purpose and
commitmnet of the wearer.

Are Bill's forward pleat khakis in good taste? Anyone have any experience with them? Do they hold up nicely? Yes they do need a serious taper in the leg by the looks of the photo

In sweltering Asia for a week.

I realised that the colours/textures are not being rendered accurately

Brown herringbone tie
Smiths navy serge blazer
W Bill ivory linen
Victory square.

Braces buttons were mis-sewn on this odd pair of trousers that I had made in Asia and this tailor positioned it too much to the front such that the braces are causing the coat to pull.

So, you like to get dressed using a single color and a single shade of that particular color? Fine for me, but that's, obviously, out of the scope of what is understood as "good taste" on this particular thread. 

The main subject of my critique are the shades of blue, or the single shade to be precise, employed on the fit and you could disagree with my interpretation of the shades, which could be blamed to bad photography or to differences on the calibration between our monitors. However, do you disagree that a fit is not in good taste if it's composed by a single color and by a single shade of this particular color? 

About the shoes, "casual" shoes can work in a "formal" outfit and "formal" shoes do not work with "casual" outfits, in my opinion. However, being passable is not optimal for me and hence my critique.

No, you are not correct. Just drop the subject already.

1. there seems to be enough variation in shade to be in good taste imo.

2. those shoes are not casual imo.

now we can drop it.

Fit of the coat looks nice, but I don't think it rates as in good taste as a whole sorry if you take that away as Manton stated as the spirit of the thread. Un-buttoned buttons on the button down and the amount the square is sticking out disqualifies it to me. I think the shirt collar needs a bit more oomph as well, as the jacket seems to be swallowing it a bit. A higher collar needed perhaps.

I'm not sure of the basis of your objection. If you don't like it, that's good enough for me, but the justifications you've given aren't cutting it. The shoes are only casual for non-Americans. They fall squarely within the realm of business wear here. And, regarding monotonic palettes, a tuxedo is monotonic and tasteful.

Way too much pocket square showing. Otherwise pretty good.
