It's a navy pocket square on a cream base - I thought I might try cream for a change - it's a color I never wear.

Interesting, because I actually quite liked the pocket square.

I think the pocket square is excellent. If that's a suit, it's an excellent fit. If odd jacket/trou, I'd need to see the pants

The PS is silk? The color is not good. 

 

 

BAM!

"We are sorry to inform you that..."

I got the rejection email just 7 minutes after the interview.

BAM!

:fu:

Hmm.  In the pic it looks like pale yellow/gold in a "wet" silk.  If it's cream, then it may work better than I'm imagining.

Can we try a simple white linen or is that too simple for you?

We can indeed - here you go (full length too). I think the simply linen square looks better.



The arms are actually even - they don't appear to be in the photo because of my watch.

Not bad, but lose the shoes for some dark brown oxfords
post #17231 of 37396

This is hard core CBD, except the shoes. Brown shoes?

I might be in the minority but I don't like the vest in this instance. 

post #17232 of 37396
An olive tie is not what I'd call hardcore CBD and the earthy tone of it lends itself to brown shoes. I asume the suit is dark grey not navy bit hard to tell on my monitor. I JF mentioned that he works for himself at home so black oxfords are really a bit much, though you could argue a 3 pce suit is too smile.gif

I work from home or from Starbucks a lot.

Haha knew you'd all hate the boots smile.gif they just arrived so I wanted to try them out. I am in the city having lunch today but I do work from home - I only dress for myself.

Suit is grey and tie is green woven with black (hober). Next time I'll do the brown shoes.

What would you pair the boots with? I its these:

SLIM WALT TROUSER PEARL GREY FLANNELby EPAULET

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Slim Walt Trouser Pearl Grey Flannel

 

 

 

Nice.  But see how they hang a bit loose and rumpled? And the tell-tale fineness of the crease suggests that it probably won't last past the first wear.  In flannel I like the  Minnis worsted -  has textural interest + wears well, hangs like steel, holds a crease   and falls cleanly.

 

If only Luxire carried Minnis in lighter weghts..  be on them like white on rice.

Most current RTW brands have low to medium rises, belt loops, small leg openings and, no dispenser buttons and not enough material available to hem them with 2" cuffs.

 

I like  belt loops for odd trews .. looks better when the jackets off around the office etc, but side adjusters for suits.  FWIW Everything else is exactly my taste.
