Please, if you could elaborate a bit on what you mean by "need to understand what you like in terms of the style"?

In my case it was how big the "V" was where the lapels met - some jackets have the lapels crossing much higher up the chest than others and my preference is to show more of the shirt and tie.

 

E.g.

 vs 

 

My preference is for the latter. Both are valid but you need to understand what you yourself like.

Looking at the pictures I think burgundy or brown grenadine tie would be a better choice over this navy one.

Regarding monks I think they are ok unless the occasion is very formal. I like them especially for smart casual fits. Still, I think that this one pair is enough for me.

Really sorry to be yet another one to "have a go" at one of your fits @blekit, but those trousers do not go with that outfit in any way, shape or form.

 

Not quite sure what would have worked better here - maybe a mid-to-dark grey - but whatever, it should have more shape to it. Those green pants have no crease.

 

Do keep posting fits. With more practice, your pattern and colour matching will become more reliable and this should greatly elevate the impact of your ensembles.

@Coxsackie no worries, the critique is totally fair :)

 

To be honest, I saw the mismatch but I decided to post the fit anyway. I'm having troubles with figuring out the bottom to wear with this jacket. I thought those moleskins might match, but they clearly are too casual and clash with the top half. Maybe if they were pressed to have a crease.

 

Mid grey seems to similar to jacket in my opinion, dark grey could work.

I think I might get the sleeves on this suit shortened.

Quite nice, but I think the square is a bit too matchy-matchy with the jacket. Something darker, like the tie would have been better imo.

To me this is all fine, but maybe it had been better with a lighter blue shirt; not so much to compliment the tie, but for that suit. (And I know you can do better PS than this.)

Exactly my thoughts.

I think the problem is that light grey odd jackets work with almost nothing. Denim can work, but the cloth seems to formal for that; I think your best bet is a dark grey.

Solid grey jacket.  They're the mirage of the menswear world.  You see them on the rack 'Hey, looks great  .. I know grey's pretty conservative, and it's a neutral, and it's so versatile!  It'll go with anything, too! Sold!'  :facepalm:

CB supplies SuSu? That's impressive. 

 

Love the suit itself.  I'd like to see such an FU item with even duller furnishings, say black Oxfords + navy solid tie, but then, that wouldn't be you..

Gotcha. Thanks.

My preference would be for the latter configuration also. The second suit just seems more flattering and has a lot more "presence", to my eye. I would be much more comfortable wearing the jacket with larger "V".

The former pic reminds me a little of a SB with button stance set too high. That might be a bit harsh on that particular DB style, but I now know for sure that I want to avoid that particular aesthetic when I bite the bullet on my first DB.

Yeah, that's like you were in my head when I was walking in that trap :)

Tan = beige or you mean something more brownish? Either way that's an interesting suggestion, I wouldn't have thought about such combination. Will give it a try.

more in the beige / tan range. not so brown.
