    Thanks for the advice and criticism. Seeing as I'm fairly new to this whole thing, I appreciate the constructive criticism. As for the tie and knot, the tie actually has a bit of sheen to it, however, it can't be seen in the picture. For the knot, I'll try something else, but do you people here have a particular knot they go to? And finally the suit, I just recently purchased it, so I'll have to take some proper pictures to have the experts here dissect it.

    Let me be clear-I like the knot, and I would not change it. Just watch out for the Knot-zis.

    They aren't tight, the hair got in the way too.

    I think any time that your skin/fat has to mould itself around the side of your glasses, they are too tight.

    The frame of the glasses looks too small, I would explore different glasses for better results.

    Wait, you smell that?
    

    Might? Give those shades to a dude with a smaller face. Completely the wrong size for him. Looks ridiculous.

    Apart from the fact that we are both wearing a blue three piece suit, I do not detect any significant similarities in fit, colour coordination, styling, etc. As such, I can only interpret your comment as implying that you associate my outfit with serious fun. Yes, I am that vain.

    If it is not a funeral, why not? You don't have the balls to put a PS on?

    I just want to be constructive but I'm sorry to say this isn't black tie at all. It might be acceptable to include some element from lounge suits in modern times, but there's nothing here from black tie other than the suit being black - the shirt is not a formal shirt, no bow tie, skinny notch lapels, pocket flaps, and (I'm guessing here) no waistcoat/cummerbund and vented two button jacket. What kind of shoes were you wearing?

    Looks good - however the jacket could be a wee bit longer for my taste.

    How tall are you?

    I didn't sleep well last night so I'm looking very tired today... oh, and I don't do 'casual Fridays', in fact I've almost gone the opposite today. It's all white, grey, black and blue: MTM midnight blue herringbone jacket; CT Black Label textured white shirt; vintage grey wool waistcoat; vintage 1960s royal blue wool knit tie; vintage tie bar (from an interesting mid-century Vermont silversmith called Joe Skinger); and not seen: mid-grey Old Town 'Vauxhall' high-back moleskin trousers and braces, black socks, vintage black Florsheim Imperial longwings.

    (Terrible pic which makes everything looks very blue and the trousers look oddly creased because of moving back to try to get in the right place at the right time).
