Be the change you want to see... smile.gif Seriously, though, if you post your own critiques, it will almost certainly inspire responses and debate.

Its a double button collar...hard to hide the second button without tying something other than a four-in-hand...

 

one of the downsides of the tall collar shirts...

 

any recommendations?

@black_umbrella I like the look in general, but I'm not crazy about the sport coat.  I think the fabric looks too smooth for that pattern. I really like the taper on those pants.  

 

@PCK1 I love everything, but that tie knot looks silly to me give how high the collar is.  You need a bigger knot.

Thanks! I got it from http://www.quality-shop.nl/ last year.

Funny, the pants don't really have a taper, it's actually my thighs and the upshot angle, but it does look tapered in this photo. You might be right on the sportcoat, but it has a summer/early fall vibe that I like. Hounds tooth is a dark brown rather than the black in the photo.

Too much going on here. Your pants and shoes are too formal for the playful shirt/jacket combo and the tie looks relatively formal-ish from the non-close ups. Too much of a mish-mash.

I don't have any experience with the two-button collar, but maybe have them vertically aligned instead of offset?

If it is criticism you seek...

This jacket is all wrong for the other elements you've chosen. rtc is right about the pants and shoes. A blue blazer would be much better here.

That would be my suggestion.

I love bobby's!

 

I was passing through very briefly - I literally had an hour between the train arriving and having to go to the airport and still managed to pick up a couple of small things - lovely store! You're fortunate to have such a great place in your city.

That's a fair comment. I rarely wear a square, and when I do, it is typically a white linen square fold. This morning I grabbed my only patterned square and momentarily considered wearing it. I put it back because I was in a professional setting today where "fitting in" was the number one concern. Out of the 8 other people in the meeting, all were in suits and none wore squares. So it was the right contextual choice even though I think my fit would look better with another minor visual compliment.

Forgot the square, which is fine.

Each individual item (cept the shirt) is nice RTC, but TP said it-   that shirt and tie don't belong with that tweed, IMO 

 

Butcher stripes r loud; so's a block stripe tie, so you've got 3 louds trying to shout each other down.  How about solid shirt + solid wool or  cashmere tie in a dark green, burgundy or black, or even better a Madder with as u say a little bit in the red band to pick up the deco on the jacket?  Maybe even a solid silk knit altho the SC might be too heavy for that.  Cool jacket.

Can't quite see the make, but really like the face on that watch.
