This needs a lot of work.

 

1. It remains slovenly. Your trousers wear like pyjamas. They are wrinkled and lack a crease and require pressing. 

2. You have improved your footwear recently and should be commended. 

3. The combination of paisley tie, argyle sweater, and that awful pocket square is overkill. Way too much going on and none of them work together.

4. The pocket square is way out of place in this outfit. In fact, it probably has no place in any outfit. 

5. Hard to tell but it looks like this jacket is too small for you. I doubt it can be buttoned properly and it may also be too short.

I like the top half. Not so much the bottom. But hey, at least you aren't tap dancing at work today. :lol:

I'm back dancing on Monday.

@heldentenor love the combo of jacket, tie, and square

Thanks for all of the thumbs lately. I decided to skip the tie today with Harris tweed, cords and boots. When I read ASW about how the sleeveless round neck vest being the "most useful sweater" I scoffed at first. Now I am beginning to understand, especially without a tie on a Friday. Enjoy the weekend ahead.

I mean this with no offense whatsoever to Tom, but if those aren't crazy-wide lapels, how far do they need to extend to be crazy-wide? Past his shoulder?

Soft collar, tartan, and Tweed.

The cut of the lapels at this width is very reminiscent of the suits produced in the 1960's by famed Savile Row tailor Tommy Nutter. However, the Nutter lapels tended to have a greater belly to them and a higher buttoning point.

I think Tom dresses in a unique style and presents his outfits so beautifully that here one can almost overlook the width of the lapel.  On a lesser being I wonder how successful they would be?

His body type is also of a substantial nature allowing him some room to get away with larger lapels. On a thin rail of a frame they would look very out of place.

Demonstrating my camouflage skills by attempting to blend in with a cherry tree.  Unfortunately, I was neither tall enough nor thin enough to blend in with a cherry tree.

Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece silk jacket, pink OCBD shirt, and tie, Squarextraordinaire pocket square, Orvis trousers, and Allen-Edmonds snuff suede Neumoks.......


......and for fans of those pictures of small parts of people that some people post, here's a small part of me.

Is the suit fully lined, and if so does that make it less adaptable for the hotter weather?

 

Thank you. The jacket is fully lined and the trousers are half-lined. Steed's default (I discovered) is to not line trousers. But Fresco is a bit more scratchy than I can comfortably wear all day long without going insane. So they are half-lined, which takes enough of the edge off for me to be able to wear them all day and while traveling, for example. All my jackets are fully lined and most of my trousers are either half- or fully-lined. As for this suit, the slightest breeze can be felt especially on my legs. It works as well as anything except possibly linen.

Love this color

 

I had not seen that picture of Vox before. I somehow feel that I've joined the big time.

:) Then you shall not be surprised when I decline. I just can't do it.

 

This suit is the first thing Steed made for me. Although the conventional wisdom hold true in that the first bespoke commission is a learning exercise, and if I had to do it over again I would change quite a bit about it (but I still wouldn't add cuffs), it is a fine and (I think) good-looking suit.
