Thank you. In my little world blue trousers are classic, stylish and versatile. Even though these slide more to marine.

Listen...if you are going to bother to dress up every day, go outside, set up a camera/photographer, then stand in the grass and take pics and post it on a public forum, expect to get feedback.
It may be positive, negative or neutral. But expect it.

Does it bother me? Not at all.

But your pictures WILL look better if you are not standing in the grass.
If you want to keep posting pics standing in the grass in CM, go right ahead. Just looks silly and takes away from the presentation.
Simple.

Set it back farther. The closer the camera is to you the more it will make you look like a pear standing on two toothpicks. A camera placed farther away reduces the ratio of how close one part of your body is to the lens, v. another. Also, distortion will appear at the edges of the lens because lenses are not flat. Having the camera farther away and zooming in if need be will reduce this affect by reducing how much of the image of you is near the edges. Having the camera at eye level also distorts your appearance. What does someone look like when you look at them from above? Shorter and wider. Try setting it at chest level at first and then experiment.

So... is this jacket 'city' or 'country'? I'd feel pretty comfortable in that jacket at a Hotel Bar downtown.

It's tweed in the city, a worsted tweed if u like. Casual jacketing. Bar yes, boardroom nope.

When I came to Canada the work I found as an immigrant was with an office furniture installation service. I've built probably 100+ Boardroom tables in Greater Toronto, and a few more across Canada but am never around for the meetings. If that jacket'l jive at the upscale spots downtown though, then that'll work. Jackets in that color seem to often be paired (well, IMO) with charcoal pants, no?
