Dem some denim.  Not feeling it, Shugz.  I think the button stance is too high and the lapels are too thin.  I think different pants (i.e. non-jeans) could make this work.

Both are true. I still think it works. But it's only fair that you get to take me to task for violating orthodoxy.

Great colors though.

Depending on how strict you are with your definition of "trousers" I'll still take the compliment. Thanks!

I thought they were blue chinos or something of that sort, but the compliment stands. You're welcome.

I actually think those types of non-traditional elements (slim lapels, shorter jackets, button stance, etc.) work well when used in a casual manner like @sugarbutch does here. If a tie were involved I would feel differently. Maybe try it without the square next time?

Hi everyone,

 

First post here. I have been reading this thread for a while now and finally came up with the courage to post a fit. Awesome stuff here from you guys, and I hope I can contribute once in a while.

 

Fit 'defense':

 

I know the yellow tie is not well liked here, and I usually dislike them as well, but I quite like the one I am wearing today. I also feel the bright color suits the hot weather I'm in. The color of the suit is very hard to catch. It's blue mixed with small black fibers and it looks less dark in reality. I quite like this suit although I really wish the pants had enough length to add cuffs...

Nice first post. The yellow and orange are a good pairing and against a navy/blue suit is solid. Well chosen! I like the square.

A suggestion. I think you want a touch more fullness in trouser. It's /slightly too tapered relative to the top to my eye and
too tapered relative to your shoes which look as a result a bit large. A wider cuff would cover a bit more of the shoe and more fullness in the trouser would balance better. Oh if sockless I'd suggest
Nice light linen socks for the heat. But just 2cents! Welcome to SF.

I agree with you about the pants actually. I'm still figuring out what I like the most with my pants when it comes to fullness and length. I just had these pants lengthened last week, but due to the slimness they can't be too long if I only want a slight break. Fuller and slightly longer will look better I think.

 

Thanks TweedyProf!

Thank you all for the thumbs for yesterdays outfit.

@GSTT, I think that's a pretty good effort. Yellow ties aren't loved around here, but I happen to think that particular paler yellow works well with the light blue shirt and blue suit for a summery look. I agree with Tweedyprof about the trousers. A bit more fullness and less taper will IMO look better and probably also be more comfortable.

You're welcome. The top fits quite well with the openness of quarters something for you to decide.

On the trousers: depends partly on how big your shoes are and how wide the cuffs. I'm a size 9d US and go for 8-8.25 inch width on cuff. Slim with enough covering of shoe. 8.5 would be max but nothing less than 8. I prefer slightest break no cuffs. But more fullness will make for cleaner lines.
