    Thank you for your encouragement concerning this outfit, gentleman. There were three things about it I thought would not go over well on SF.

    1) The vest and jacket are both herringbone.
    2) The pocket square and tie match.
    3) I'm wearing a collar bar with a button down shirt.

    I didn't say anything about this before because I didn't want to sabotage myself the challenge. So apparently these things were overlooked or maybe they aren't as offensive as I think they are. What of it?

    Doc, gdl's thread is open to submission from others so it isn't really a presentation of one person's favorites (and I'm sorry that I didn't catch the reference to it in your post). You're certainly welcome to create a new thread, but a revitalization of gdl's might serve the same purpose and reduce the fragmentation, if only a bit.

    Before addressing the shoes, I think that the trousers really don't work with the patterned jacket. The trousers do not appear to be patterned as such but their texture, from the photo, is practically a pattern and it clashes with the plaid of the jacket The shoes are fine for an interview in a dressy dark suit. However they do not really work with the combination in your photos. They are too formfal IMHO.

    one of your best yet-- colors, updated pattern, and tie all look great to me! are you using collar bones in your shirt collars/ if so, are they long enough?

    A Bowtie with that sweater? You would make it look even more comical.
    I would lose that color sweater period. BTW, I really like the cut of your jacket
    but it looks a size too small for you.

    Thats my problem with Tailorstore MTO shirts. I choose the "two button cut-away" because this collar has a good height (4,5 cm) and long collar end (9 cm). The only problem is, that the collar stays are very poorly sewn in.
    So next times I will give Luxire a try.

    I wouldn't go as far as "recurring", but two consecutive days is just cause for concern - I'm touched that you care! See, as my SF modus operandi is to get out of the car, take out my phone, take two or three happy snaps while in motion, and then walk into my office, I am often a little careless in making any fine adjustments along the way. I do though, you will be relieved to know, observe the SB jacket/tie protocol at all times when seated. The next two suits I have coming will indeed take braces. Anyway, I was careful to make sure my "pants" were in proper order today. All is well!

    NB, I was also extra careful to give my PS the correct level of apparent nonchalance, and my Shibumi grenadine the approved DFIH instead of a Shelby. Butch, I think of you almost every day.

    Breaking them pretty skillfully, IMO. Though I wouldn't pair that tie and square, myself.

    Thanks. Yeah, it may have been too far flung from the rest of the outfit.

    Nice elements, especially the shoes. But there's something wrong about the balance of this fit. Took me a while to work out what it is...

    The buttoning point on the suit jacket is too high. This may not be noticeable with its matching pants, but those jeans are relatively low-cut, and they just don't work with that high buttoning point.

    Sorry to nit-pick. The shoes are nice, and kudos to you for rocking an ascot.
