Great outfit! Everything from the DB to the pinstripes to the hat makes it come together.

The tie and pocket square don't really complement each other. I do like the checked odd trousers, which I'm a fan of, though I'm sure you'll find plenty of critics of them here.

Crappy iPhone pic in the morning light makes the shirt bluer than it is. Best for the weekend, gentleman.

Nice Combo!

Tie Deets?

KW, must be the lighting, but the color of the jacket/pants doesn't look the same from here.

KW and I were on the same wavelength today.

Thanks, tie is from EG Cappelli. It's not on their website but they likely still have the cloth. A lovely woven challis.

TheoProf: Great collar roll. Everything that I can see in the photo is nice and tasteful.

Theo, as Kent and CM have said previously, excellent first start. Do feel brave more frequently!

SFers~

 

I don't think I have posted this many outfits in a row, but I am in the middle of figuring out what I want to do with my fits and stuff, and it's been very helpful, so thank you very much. If possible, I'd love some feed back on this also.

 

As always, thoughts on the combinations would be very much appreciated (maybe the stripe shirt is not the best choice, but I kind of like it).

 

Also I would like some opinions on my trousers. For those who don't read the noodles thread I am in the process of returning a lot of my trousers to the tailor to be altered, and I'm finalizing how exactly I want them altered. Right now I've decided to keep the length of the pair I wear here, but make it .75~ inch or 1 inch wider (it is 7.75 now, so I want to make it 8.5 or 8.75). As you can see in the photo, there is some bunching in the front which I think is caused by the way my legs are angled and my lower calves bulging and bunching the fabric at the back pulling the front unevenly. Anyone who is knowledgable, do you reckon increasing the width will solve this, or is there something specific about the trousers I should be fixing? I would like a straight falling leg that isn't way too wide.

 

If you look at one of the photos where I am not standing straight, the leg is straight at the front if it is bent, but it seems when I stand straight my legs are bent slightly backwards and the front wrinkles and doesn't fall uniformly. I ASSUME wider trousers would fix this (I am not just getting opening wider it will just be wider in general, from thighs downwards), but I am not sure? Could my legs just be shaped and angled strangely, or is this normal?

 

A good (or bad) thing is that I wear boots 80-90% of the time. Good is that I think this makes even slightly wider trousers not too big because boots are chunkier. Bad is that because I wear both boots and shoes that means I can't make my trousers perfect with both of them as I think arguably the optimal specifications would be different for boots and trousers. As per my previous fits I was wearing trousers that were too short for my monks, but I think are fine for my chukkas. Anyway, I think the length here (1 inch longer than my previous outfit) should do both adequately.

 

Jacket... well I kind of think this fits fine, but in any case I will have to wait half a year or more before I get back to the tailor in person to change anything. I think I will be letting out the previous 2 flannel db jackets, but this one I think is fine as is, but opinions welcome.

 

Anyway, thoughts appreciated, thank you very much for reading.

Oh yeah:

Hober herringbone cashmere tie

Kent Wang Square

 

Really enjoying these new ties, and this has been a very useful square for me, although, as before, I'm new to pairing ties and squares so I'm not sure if I'm doing it right. I ended up spreading the corners a little bit more than the photos so there are more dark colors showing, since it seems otherwise the cream blends into the gray.
