Hey Dennis, I like all the details in that outfit. I just have a hard time appreciating when the vest and the bow are so similar in pattern/pattern size.

It's the light. The impossible spring light.

The scales of the checks in vest and bow tie are too similar and are making me dizzy. You should vary the size of the pattern to comply with the so-called Flusser rule (have you heard of that rule, son)?

@blekit Thank you for continuing to post your fits.  I know you are open to advice and good spirited about critiques.  With that in mind I offer what I hope to be constructive thoughts. 

 

Going forward for suit purchases, I'd suggest trying to find a longer jacket with a lower buttoning point.  I am not a DB expert, but to me, the jacket is a tad short and the button point a bit high such that from the button to the bottom of the jacket it just gets wider and wider, which isn't flattering to your physique.  Continue to wear and enjoy that suit, it isn't so off as to be non-functional.  SF members may not care for a DB striped suit that is clearly on the bold side, but you're a young guy, working in London (?), so I think you can more than pull it off.  On the picky side, the square is showing predominantly blue which looks too matchy and you already have a lot going on with that suit, so perhaps the good old white linen.  Also, I tend to not like grenadine ties with puppytooth patterned shirts.  The texture just appears too similar to my eye.  I'd further add given the boldness of the suit, a plain light blue or even white shirt might be a better look.  As I type, with the shoes, etc, I think white shirt, white square might be the right choice there.  The old adage about look in the mirror and take one thing away (the additional color that the shirt brings) might apply here.  Cheers,

I wouldn't say that suit flatters you.

Jacket is indeed tad too short, but the button stance is at the correct height in my opinion (it sits right at the waist level). The camera was positioned a little too low and I leaned away a bit - perhaps that's why it might seem otherwise and creates the widening effect at the hips. I am aware of the length issue and I'm working on it for my summer tailoring purchases and I'll definitely have in it mind going for my first bespoke. Pink shirt with micro-pattern and plain tie seemed as a good, understated choices that let the suit play the leading role which was my intention. I don't think that the pattern on shirt and tie texture clash. I agree, that white linen PS would be better, I actually moved this one to show only white part later during the day. 

 

I'm working in Wroclaw actually. My job doesn't have any formal dress code instantiated and I have a tendency to experiment and play with classic menswear - hopefully more often than not with good results :)

 

Anyways, thanks for the feedback.

Let's agree to disagree then :)

 

I personally love DB fits from SuSu and feel like they look good on me. This particular one is the boldest, most powerful suit I own and doesn't leave the closet too often. But when I decide to channel my inner Gordon Gekko, I'm happy to give it a go and I enjoy wearing it.
