As someone firmly entrenched in the "oxblood everything" camp, I'll +1 this!

Funny you should say that. I have noticed the same thing. It is probably a problem with the skirt of the suit being a bit tight around my hips.

However -- and here is the weird aspect -- It does not feel tight in that area (and, in fact, it does not look like it is pulling). I do not think it is a pattern matching issue. It is a bit of an enigma to me. I have given some thought to letting out the waist of the jacket a smidge, to try to alleviate the effect. But I am a couple pounds heavier than normal, so I may just wait it out. What is strange here is that if it was a solid colored suit, I don't think there would be any fit issue.

At the end of the day though, I am not too picky about these things. I button things up for my WAYWRN pic, and then I walk around with my jacket open the rest of the day.

 

Possibly just posture? It seems like you're leaning and the jacket is hanging off the buttoned button as a result. Hard to say from one photo and vertical stripes do weird things in photos.

Bit more casual today, I know sportcoats and jeans are mostly frowned upon. Hell, I just like it with a very casual jacket like this.

Tweed and jeans can be very nice.

The shirt stripe is brown and the tie ground purple? If so, well done with the colors. There are some fit issues in the trousers I'm sure others will cover. I'm not wild about the severely sloping shoulders in the coat: I think you could use a higher shoulder that's a touch narrower. Shoes look good: both in general, and with that ensemble particularly. Needless to say, you are doing better than almost all men on the planet.

I love my oxblood shoes. I wear them at least once a week.

@Nelton, not bad. As previously mentioned, you look better than basically everyone else on the street already, so you are worthy to be nitpicked...:smarmy:
 
My critique: Definitely wear your trousers a little higher up, or pick a different model suit with a higher rise - it will be infinitely more flattering. To me, your trousers currently look too low (and your tie looks wayyyy too long to compensate for this). Also, I think trousers with leg openings that narrow look great with slightly less break and a good chunky turn up (2 inches or so). 
 
I would also consider a shirt with a slightly higher collar and longer points if you can find one.

Knowing @Pliny as I do, I'd be willing to bet it's a blue (albeit a very pale one) shirt...

Thank you! The shirt is a light purple/grey stripe perhaps the 2nd photo is a slightly more accurate representation. Your compliment makes me want a brown striped shirt though! When you say higher do you mean less slope, so more flat or what?

Thank you again, I'm willing to learn! I think the trousers are slipping down as I have lost a little weight since the summer when I bought the suit. It's a SS Napoli for reference. I would like to get the trousers taken up a little and perhaps in as I'm constantly pulling them up! Or maybe I just need a new belt. satisfied.gif

It looks like LLTW12, Brown Shetland with Crimson Windowpane, a cloth I have been seeking for some time now.

Nelton u usually do better IMO
Shirt collar is too narrow. The kindest thing I can say about that badly tied tie (re colors) is that it's very English. I'd consider widening the trew hems. Square is all ahoo . - crisp white linen TV fold prob best here. With that navy suit (although some here can pull-off that look) I'd go for darker shoes.

Shout to @HenryCarter for the 7 fold twill repp - my fav tie.
