I can be mesmerized by my own beard. Don't need yours. It's probably the knit.

Not bad, really, but you'll probably get some shit for the velvet.  :nodding: 

 

Might consider up and in a bit *on the pants. Is the shirt white or blue?

Solid look. Velvet indeed looks a bit out of place...but a classic look from the color perspective.

I didn't end up wearing that jacket to the office. I don't normally like to wear velvet unless it's cold and I'm going out for the night. Here is a closer pic of the shirt and tie.

Welcome!

I'm generally not a fan of that style of stripes for shirts, and the dots on an already patterned tie are too busy for my taste. Those are matters of personal preference, though, and you may not get consensus on them from the assembled commenters. The jacket, however, has no relation to the rest of the items. A navy sportcoat (or other color if so inclined) in a hopsack or serge or some other jacketing fabric would go much better.

This is a bit more casual, but, hey, I've got a tie on. (Collar on the shirt is a totally unlined, old-school USA-made BB, so it's a bit rumpled and I kind of like it like that.)

I’m assuming you’re open to commentary.  I’m limiting my remarks to the trouser fit.

 

These trousers are unflattering on you, simply because they’re just too small.

 

 

 

 

(1)  Look how tight they are in the crotch;  ‘stress lines’ look like the pants would rip if you sat down.

(2)  They’re so tight across the abdomen that we can see the individual knuckles of your left hand in the pocket.

(3)  Something’s not right with this creasing under the left buttock; can’t tell what exactly from this angle.

(4)  They’re too short.  We shouldn’t be able to see your socks when you’re standing up straight in laced shoes like those.

 

It’s been said before but it’s worth repeating:   you’d benefit immensely from wearing suspenders.  Depending on where you live, it usually only costs $10-20 to add the needed buttons; barring that get clip-ons.    In any event, size up, get a proper hem length and suspenders of whatever sort, and you’ll see a world of difference.

 

Cheers,

 

Ac

Thanks for the notes. For what it's worth, I am wearing suspenders. In fact, I've given up wearing belts altogether. I just sew the buttons in myself.

Excellent!  In that case you can easily size up so the trousers are hanging from your shoulders not your waist which can make a world of difference.

I think this is a combination of two things: 1) I put on about 10 pounds over the month of December. it's amazing anything fits me right now. Two, the angle. I've been sitting in these pants all day, and they aren't uncomfortable, and they aren't bulging. They could fit better, you're certainly right about that, but I'm betting once Feb rolls around, they'll be fine again.
 
Thanks again!

Gaziano & Girling Westminster ... TG73 ... Vintage Burgundy ... a color that they sadly no longer offer ... and which has been replaced by a crappier Burgundy or the much too purple Rioja ... the Vintage Burgundy was a great shade of classic oxblood.
