Concur with previous posters that the shoulder needs to be taken in by about 1 cm on either side, and that the sleeves need to be shortened considerably. Â Also, it looks like your cuffs are a bit too tight (I'm of the school that believes that the cuff should fall just past your wrist naturally, and should allow enough space for a watch to be worn.) Â And I hate to say this, but I agree with Dug about the jacket. Â You should accentuate the color of the shirt with a medium gray or navy blue suit. Â As it stands, the olive/pistachio color is a little jarring. Â Also, the lapels just don't seem to fall correctly. Â They should fall right at the edge of the collar or cover the collar slightly. Â There is much definitely too space between your lapel and your neck. Â And the body looks a little shapeless. Â I suspect that the jacket needs a bit of tailoring to fit you perfectly. And the stone washed jeans with patch pockets is not a great look for you, whether you are wearing a jacket or just a sweat shirt. Â Nor does a thin black dress belt particularly go well with it. Â My advice to to get yourself to AB Fits in North Beach, or American Rag or Rolo on Howard, all good streetwear stores, and get yourself a proper pair of dark jeans - nothing fancy, mind you. Â A pair of basic Helmut Langs would do you nicely. But congrats on the shirt, very nice. Â As for matching patterns and stripes - it's doable, but risky. Â In this case, looking at the spacing and size of the polka dots, it could work.
And I hate to say this, but I agree with Dug about the jacket = not very politicly correct to say that. and rather childish so I hope CTGuy will ignore you as well as he porpose to do with me. More seriously, you want to look better as you make MTM shirts? To look like an tastfull guy? Well better learn about wearing (instead of talking about 1 cm on a MTM shirt) : - tasty garment/color/style/quality (and so avoid green jacket) - which fit your body (take the right size and avoid jean's making you look fater than you are.) - which matches together (plain/dot, plain/strip) What's why I explain our friend that is jacket (color, fabric, cut) jean's (cut) and belt (quality or age) are ugly (not even together but taken alone) and that dots do not match with strips (with different level of none matching). If he wants to wear MTM shirts fitting better with no taste for all other garment, this is his right. I just inform him. You will always find some people saying white socks, brown shoes, green suit, grey shirts and yellow tie are "ok" = look around you, many people are less or more like this. My opinion about how to look dressy = 1) black oxford shoes 2) navy/gray suit 3) white/bleu (pink) shirts, plain or stripped, classic collar, double cuff 4) cufflinks matching in color and form with your watch 5) braces 6) four un hand tie tie (no windsor) 7) shirt/tie/suit = 2 plain and 1 stripped or dotted (possible 2 stripped under conditions) My opinion to look casual without beeing a stupid fashion victim = 1) levi's 501 2) short leather jacket 3) cachemire sweater 4) black simple sneakers (no laofer please.) 5) one of your dressy shirt Avoid brands for fashion victims like Polo, Armani, D&G....and you will save lots of money for your real dressy wardrobe. P.S. Glasses are "ok".
