Quote: Great look. Just two minor things:

 

1. It looks like the stitching holding your braces buttons is poking through and showing on the waist band of your pants. I'd give a seamstress $5 or $10 to re-sew the buttons and not have the thread poke through. 

 

​2. I'd try the suit with a spread collar shirt. A bit more elegant than a button down.

No. Don't resew anything.

The thread that attaches the brace button to the waist band is what holds the pants up. Usually a special, super strong thread involving many passes and anchored completely through the waist band, just as belt loop, serving the same function, is sewn completely thru the waistband. It's not unsightly, it's purposeful.

I think this jacket has an acute style.

I politely disagree. Have no quarrel that the thread/braces buttons have to be solidly attached, but it can be done without poking through the outside of the pants. I have lots of pants done this way (without showing), and have never, ever, had a single button pull loose.

The shirt and tie have no place in this outfit.

Thanks for your feedback. I wear this suit quite often with spread collars, but I also like the suit with BD and sometimes I need some variety. Yes, the stitching is poking through and I can totally understand if you don't like that, but the fabric is very light and the soft unfused waistband wouldn't stay in place without poking the stitching through the front. I could go for a less soft canvas, but I prefer a soft waistband and that's always a bit difficult with braces.

Got it. Makes perfect sense.

Is it just me or is the jacket rather short?

It's the same length as pretty much all of my odd jackets. I think I've mentioned before I have an unusually long body/arms and relatively short legs, so jackets much longer than this tend to make me look out of proportion a bit, whereas this length pretty closely 'cuts me in half' if you know what I mean.

Ah, I see. It would probably be easier to see in a full body shot, but I totally get what you are saying.
