    Jeans look good, shirt is fine. I'd suggest some different sneakers though. Like, I don't know how exactly to say it, but they kinda look like toys. Toy shoes. If that makes sense. Childish.


    Unless you're going for childish. But, in that case, make sure (as hoozah mentioned) that the colors mesh well.

    I have the same shoes in all black and another in gray? Would that be better? They're both really beat up and worn down, which I actually like(both the look and comfort). That's also part of the reason why I'm wearing these bright red ones, I'm trying to break them in and beat them up. Thanks for the critique though

    knucks doesn't need shirts that are smaller in the should. it only looks like he does because his traps are so big.

    Random Thought. GDL is probably the best at describing what is wrong with a fit.

    This is very true. The traps make whatever shoulders I have slope. This I can deal with, the tightness in the chest, you are all right, I need more room there.

    Returning this shirt and the same type in white, the search for a well-fitting oxford continues.

    Un-inspired, I know. But I needed to redeem myself. Changed the pants and shoes. I think it looks better.

    I think some mtm trousers would look 100x better on you than jeans.

    hey guy, my $0.2 - based on your physique, it's going to be tough to find most OTR that fits you. You have a wide neck, and developed traps which will rarely be accounted for in most OTR shirts or sportscoats/suits. Your first blue oxford the neck was bursting open, the chest too tight, and then actually a little wide at the waist, so it made you look dumpy/chubby instead of accentuating your shoulders and chest and slimming the waist. I suspect that your best bet for shirts will be MTM and sportscoats bespoke or very good MTM because standard MTM simply won't have the options to adjust for your particular shape.
    As for pants fit, you have a relatively trim waist, but clearly well ahem developed glutes and thighs, so all that together and you end up with flaired pockets which visually give you hips. My suggestion here is to either size up a little to give your butt and thighs more room and then have the waist taken in a little, plus don't go too tapered down the leg, stick to straight to balance out the thighs, or actually, you're the example of where even a single pleat, maybe a double will give you a lot more allowance. pleats aren't old-fashioned, they're functional and in your case, maybe necessary.

    IMO jeans look good. Shirt's nice too. Shoes aren't bad per se, just don't really work with this fit since the shirt and pants are both subdued colors. Even a classic white sneaker wouldn't work here because it just stands out too much, so plain dark footwear completes the look. If you had a lighter shirt, then those should could work. All that being said, they're not the most 'mature' shoes out there...
