Garish might be a bit harsh, no? I too would change out the PS for a subtler tone, perhaps a burgundy or brown. The outfit is quite bold, true, perhaps even a bit much, but I wouldn't say it's over the top.

Probably. Just isn't for me! I was speaking at a law school luncheon. Had a great time blending in with judges and such!

For a long day of work, with a business lunch and a meet up with some E-Sartorialist this evening.

This turned into a lower-contrast fit than I anticipated. So I tried to add a pop of color with the square. Did it work?



Also, this seems to be the week for new shoes. These are the Carmina x Skoaktiebolaget GMTO Polo suede semi-brogues that were delivered last December. First time on my feet. I've said I'm not much of a suede person which is partly why it's taken me so long to try these out. One thing I have noticed is a close correlation between the quality of a shoe (as approximated by price) and the initial comfort level. These Carminas are rubbing my heels somewhat this morning and I may need to add some moleskin patches before they break the skin. The Edward Greens I wore for the first time Monday were completely comfortable all day, as have all the EGs I own. I have owned Meermin shoes and those were brutal to break in. One pair that I gave up on never truly got to where I could wear them all day without damage to my heel.


Anyway, new Carminas on their first time around the block:

But I lke the tie @Koala-T.  I need some paisley.  Details?

Thank you, @Mr Knightley . Most of my ties come from the op shop. This one is a vintage Talbott. However, I've found a lot of Mallory & Church in a paisley madder that I like a lot (the more subdued ones). There's also a maker that I've only been able to identify as Jermyn Street that makes nice ones. Also, John Comfort.

Andy, I think the colors are fine. Do you have a bowtie in madder silk to go with the tweed?

Thanks, dude! It's actually a Hickey Freeman, but a more recent one since they've sort of branched out. I love the colors.

@Nelton you're improving every day, good sir!  :slayer:Good choice of colours in this outfit, but perhaps a navy tie would have been a better choice. 
Fit wise, your jacket (and coat) sleeves are still a little long - taking them up would make a world of difference. I also think the jackets look slightly long on your frame - not enough to worry about altering, but perhaps something to keep an eye out for next time you're shopping. Trousers are a good length for you  but perhaps a little too slim. A slightly wider leg that hangs much more cleanly would look really sharp. 
Is that Ralph Lauren shirt a casual button down? The fabric looks a little thick to work as a dress shirt. There's nothing wrong with a button down collar and a tie, but the fabric should be a lot finer and the collar points have to be a little long and spread apart for it to look good.
My advice to you would be to have a look at Charles Tyrwhitt. Get yourself measured in store, find the correct collar and sleeve length for you and grab some shirts in the 4 for £100 offer. They're not going to be Charvet quality, but they're really not bad at all for the money. Most of all, you should be able to get a good fit and buy multiple shirts that fit consistently.
