Hey upcoming, many posts all the same question. Many of us have given you much the same advice on previous posts you've had about your shirts. 

Seems to me you need to work on how "YOU" think you look and feel in said shirts and develop a sense of your own style instead of going by what we as a whole think. Don't wear your shirts for the sole reason because you think that's what we would wear or like. Because if you ask 3 three people you'll likely get 3 different answers.

Much of how this works is how you carry yourself and confidence you exude about any piece you wear. Hell my buddies wear crazy stuff , and pics I see on this very forum of members adorned in pieces I wouldn't give a second thought to but they wear it in such a way as to make me second guess my initial impression just because they rocked it, and a lot has to do with confidence.

 

I recall you saying that you have to wear a jacket or sweater over your shirts so why give it too much concern? Find the ones you feel comfortable in and patterns you love and wear them. Your other concern was about your thin frame. Get the shirts altered, or find MTM. The best thing you can do is find a reputable tailor and work with them. 

As for this shirt, maybe tuck them in slightly deeper because how it stands now it looks a bit big. sleeves, maybe a touch shorter but not a deal breaker. It looks like you might have sized down to get this to fit as your shoulder line look to be off.

Now if you pulled it all together with a tie and a shawl collar cardigan....

 

BTW your belt is still a touch too long.

 

cheers

Dude...

Well I do think it's useful to point out that the waist needs to be taken in or a slimmer fit needs to be taken because there's definitely too much fabric there but not on the shoulders. Anyway that should be clear, instead of just posting your photos, look at them yourself and see what you think, and if you're not sure, ask if your assessment is accurate or not, otherwise you're not going to learn anything.

Sorry for upsetting any of you if I have. I genuinely do appreciate your advice and I will definatly take it on board. If I don't the moderators can ban me!

I like wearing something over my shirts but as the summer is approaching the UK what do you wear in the summer over the top of a shirt? Cardigan?

Regarding to the fit of the shirt is it wearable? Do you think "normal" people will look at me and say 1. He needs to wear better fitting clothes or 2. He's a smart looking guy?

What I mean is if someone random in the street saw me wear this shirt will their mind scream "that's a horrible fitting shirt dude buy a well fitting one next time"?

Perhaps you didn't notice my response when you posed this question last week. It's rather long, so rather than copying and pasting it here, you can find it at http://www.styleforum.net/t/79716/ask-a-question-get-an-answer-post-all-quick-questions-here-classic-menswear/29950_50#post_7699276

Alternatively, perhaps you keep asking for opinions on the fit of your shirt because you're seeking approval from a bunch of strangers who post to SF. If that is the case, I would ask you to completely disregard my previous response to your question. Instead, I want to go on record as saying that the fit is perfect. A 10. If it were possible, I'd rate it an 11. It's the standard of fit to which all other shirts aspire, and which they inevitably fail to meet, resulting in them turning to lives of alcoholism and despair. (There. That what you wanted? I'm glad to have made you happy. I guess we can put the question to rest now, eh?)

Your insecurity and self-consciouses will tell people more about you than your shirt. I can feel it radiating from my screen.

Like you're not planning, I hope, to post your outfit here every time you leave the house or make a purchase, so whatever happens you're going to need to be able to judge for yourself what looks good and what doesn't, and the way you phrase your posts makes you sound like you just want an okay so you can keep doing what you do, instead of learning about clothes and how to dress. You haven't asked a single serious/specific question about clothes as far as I can see, just asking for assurance.

You can't get so hung up on what people think about your clothes. Striving to look/feel better in your clothes is one thing, but obsessing over how people will perceive the fit of your shirt (and/or perceive you as a person) stems from a much deeper-rooted issue.

7ish? Sleeves are a touch big, chest looks okay, but the waist needs a lot of work.
