That break on the pants is always a problem(6.4 tall and long legs)....the tailor never seems to get it right.Would like some advice on how is it safer to alter them so they fit properly and they're not too short or too long.

Beautiful suit.  I think this could work with no tie, but I'm not sold on the white shirt.  I think the white shirt would look better with a lighter pocket square, keeping the whole look light.  I think a chambray or denim shirt could also work here adding some contrast.  Or maybe not.

I'm a mere 5' 10" on a good day, but I believe in numbers.  I usually tell my tailor what I want the inseam to be.  He pins me in the pants and we measure after I take them off to see if my suggestion was correct.  It usually is.  Find a pair of pants you like and measure them.

Figure out what inseam length you like and insist he/she hems them that length.

Thanks. I'm still experimenting with was works and what doesn't with this suit. I tried a light blue shirt but didn't care for that, and I think denim or chambray might be in the same ballpark. I like the effect of white on ivory, but it is not for everyone, I know. Same with the square. Lighter squares are a bit washed out against all that ivory.

Great suit, fits you well. I know that you are not fond of breaks but the pants do look slightly short, or maybe that's just the way you are standing? The spermtie is very nice too, tricky to match that kind of red colour with anything but it works with the vibrant blue.

I like the 70s vibe. Even the colours in the photo are slightly "vintage" in feel. But I do hope those pants doesn't have flares, they do look suspiciously wide around your ankles...

Thx. Trews look short because of the way I'm standing. All my trousers are hemmed to the same length, 31 inches on the dot, and just touch the shoes when standing.

Only have a close-up of this fit, but you have to trust me that the rest was amazing.

 

SC: Caruso

Shirt: Truzzi

Tie: Vanda

PS: Eton

Sure. Here are pictures of same suit although they were taken about a month ago. The suit is a bespoke Britsh suit from the late 1970's or early 80's. It is in a tropical wool so it is paper thin. Perfect for hot weather. My shoes always get beat up quickly from walking, dancing, and a very active lifestyle.

I had the flare removed, although when the wind blows they seem to be visible again.

Obviously, a lot going on here, but I think the tie doesn't work.  The stripes of the tie are almost a perfect match for the stripes of the shirt.  I like the way the shirt, jacket and square go together though.  Very nice.

I think an olive square would possibly work well.  Dark enough for contrast, but still in the same temperature/color family.  Also, what shoes did you go with?  I hope the spectators.
