Damn near flawless. Especially the tie.
Your jacket seems to have some sort of technological enhancement on your right arm. Interesting. What does it do, turn into some sort of superhero costume?
Btw, I nothing wrong with grey jackets. If the jacket is a darker shade of grey there is always a risk that it looks like an orphaned suit jacket, but light grey like this, especially with the checks, looks great.
I've never noticed Clags ties as out of proportion. Do you have a photo/fit that you are thinking of? And what is considered the perfect proportion? Seems to be a bit of variance even within some of the "bigger" bespoke names.
Amazing ensemble. Great color combo. The suit fits you very well.
I said lapels, not ties. There is much room for preference here, but I prefer a more proportional lapel than is favored by many on SF. What I mean when I say proportional is that the edge of the widest part of the lapel be somewhere in the vicinity of the midway point between the outer visible edge of the chest and inner visible edge. It doesn't have to be perfectly even between the two points, but close is good IMO. Please see the image below...
Assuming we’re talking about 2-button single-breasted notch lapel jackets, anything from 1/3 to 2/3 of the distance to the sleeve seam is considered within the range of “classic” style by most historians. Examples which are narrower or wider than that tend to be statistical outliers (and often date the jacket as an example of a particular short-lived fashion).
That said, what looks best in any particular case depends very much on the physique of the wearer, as well as other aspects of the jacket design such as the buttoning point.
Of course you have. However, being out of proportion doesn't necessarily look bad. It just depends on the eye and the physique. Clags, as seen in his posts above, has a wider than proportional lapel in general. That doesn't mean it's bad, it's just not in a classical 1/1, 1/2, or 1/4 ratio. What @Academic2 reads as classical style is more correctly termed "classic" style. "Classical" style would never deal in thirds, only wholes, halves, and quarters. That is why I say that a 1/1 ratio is "proportional" in my mind. It doesn't mean that it is correct, it is merely proportional by that term.
Hats are something you have to wear with attitude. It helps to remember that they are NOT an affectation - they are a functional element of the elegant man's wardrobe, and they complete one's look.
Most of the hatless fits we admire would have been considered woefully incomplete, back in the golden era of menswear.
Select your hat carefully, wear it with pride, and give no thought to those who might disparage your choices.

Um, I said "classic." I quote:
