Is that the way you normally stand? If so, then the front is to narrow and the back is to wide. Shoulders look sloped more than the shirt. Back is to long, so needs to be raised at the shoulder, well, actually, at the bottom of the yoke.

Does it feel a little big to you? It looked right from the front, but large from the back. Also, the collar wan't buttoned, so it was hard to tell if it was too big, but it did look large in scale for the proportion of your neck and face. A smaller scaled collar might be better next time?

With a white or blue shirt, virtually any sold tie would look good with that suit - red, navy, burgundy, brown, hunter, etc. Navy or hunter with white dots would also be nice. And don't forget ancient madder. Find a complementary square, or just wear white linen in a TV fold. From a distance, the suit likely looks light brown, so wear any tie and square combo that would work with that. My recent attempt with a light brown:
Have to agree with Luftvier. The tie is really bad with this outfit and appears to jarring for your coloring. I like the jacket coloring for you, but you need to link at least one color from it with your tie (or pocket square). Also, you have selected a jacket with such a high stance, I think your body and neck has the right scale for a windsor knot, but the jacket leaves so little room for it - it seems like there is not enough room. The ecru shirt works, except that the collar again is taken up by the jacket. And I have to agree that about the shaving.

A rough guide is all i want to know. WHat in inches is the chest size of 154lb guys who stand 5ft9. Also is this size guy a small, medium or large clothes person in general?

Pics of cliffords with denim? I'm considering purchasing them but am concerned with how the light tan will pair with darker colors.

Midnight blue overcoat; any suit colours I can't wear with that?

Are there no other cheaper options? Ebay hasn't really been working for me either.

Bumping this for the sake of the OP and myself.

There is no secret source for good quality gray flannel dress pants that fit well, are sold finished (hemmed), and cost less than $150.

Is a cutaway collar the same as a semispread?

No. IMO, cutaway is a much wider spread.

I know the "rules" for matching ties and pocketsquares, but what are the rules for scarves? I want to pick up a couple and I'm at a loss as to what colors to go for. I'm going to be wearing a decent amount of patterned flannel this fall, so it's hard for me to gauge what color would be most versatile.

^ Neutral colors such as cream and grays go with many colors, and would probably work with most of your flannels. EZ

Well, since they're dirt cheap, I was thinking of buying two or three of these:

I really like the red and the brown on their own, but I wonder how well they would match with stuff. Which two/three would you guys recommend?
post #4439 of 33197
Those are kind of cool, especially for so cheap. I like the saddle plaid and both of the blue ginghams. Fairly easy to match those with stuff. The red is cool, but if you are wearing a red plaid already it might look like too much of the same. EZ

How big is a four door car?

There are guys at that weight height that are fit and will be much bigger in the chest. There are guys that are belly heavy and will have smaller chests.

For the S/M/L stuff some will have narrow shoulders some will be wider.

If I went back up to 154 I guess I would be close to a 42 inch. Others might be a 38.

A tape measure isn't that expensive. Even a myotape is less then a pair of socks.
