Seriously, though, I think is a case of the jacket's being too high contrast for the rest of the outfit. The pants, tie, and vest are very dark, the shirt is pretty saturated with a dark-ish color, and then you have the jacket on top. Also, I have trouble conceiving any mix of pieces in which I like that shirt with that jacket.

I like that AAS!

 

Socks are too much with everything else though imho.

Stop encouraging him, rtc!

It's like saying a polo overcoat doesn't go with anything...

It's not something you're used to saying, but there's no denying that fit is uniquely AAS's style and he pulls it off in a way that none of us could. I'd probably use a different square and socks, but I think it works for him.

While AAS has a fit that I feel works for him since it is his own unique calculation, there are just too many pronounced individual pieces combined. Together, they forcefully deconstruct the harmony of the outfit. While the drape is balanced from bottom to top, the mentality is not. The bottom has a simple contemporary understated nature to it, while the waist upwards has every individual article all vying for attention, saying, I represent a country/leisurely gentleman the strongest. While each are great articles, and many work together, in my opinion there are simply to many. Also the trousers and shoes interrupt that lifestyle, promoting a more youthful urbanity. The only thing in the entire outfit I personally do not care for, is the pocket square. As for the little I can see of it, it is best left to a discarded Etro advertisement. All in all, I love the willingness AAS has to experiment on such a vivid level. Well done Sir. When your heart is compelled to experiment, break the rules.

The tie is just a bit too rustic for me, ss.

I love the tie, but the setting is wrong. Jacket and shirt are too city / formal, IMO.

Yes, I meant too rustic for the context.

That tie needs to have some tweed in close proximity.
