    Killing it, TTO. Not my style but it's because I don't have the guts/attitude.

    They looked chunky and grey in that photo - almost like nice hiking shoes - with fairly tapered trousers.

    Figure you can't argue w/ bucks in any fit that incorporates seersucker. And even if the colors are similar, the texture is different enough.

    Mild objection withdrawn (since I know you were sweating it).

    Back home for the summer holiday, don't miss the 42C weather too much!

    Bought a new linen shirt yesterday, so I decided to take it on its maiden voyage.

    Going to get the blazer tailored a bit (sleeves taken up, shortened, brought in a touch)...

    Too crazy thin? It's a Dior thing, I think. I like them, but don't want to look silly. (I am trying the blazer on consignment.)

    To me they look silly.
    As does the hidden placket of the shirt.

    It looks like it fits great.

    The lapels are quite terrible to me.

    My view is kind of weird though. A lot of style for men are things that used to be functional and are no longer not but shouldn't appear as non-functional. Lapels used to be the front of the jacket when it was buttoned all the way up. Eventually people stopped buttoning all of them and settled on the lower 3 (now 2) buttons and this eventually created the lapels. If you fold the lapels in, the jacket should somewhat appear to be able to close or overlap a little. Those don't and it looks really silly. But again, my warped view about things that are decorative but shouldn't appear so.

    Am I wrong on any of that? I mean that's where the 3r2 came from, too, right?

    They look silly thin. Since you said you are trying it, I'd return it if it were me.

    Also, unbutton your top button, it looks like you forgot your tie.

    It all looks a bit silly to me. The lapels are insanely small and we've been heading out of the micro lapel trend for a few years. The shirt all the way buttoned up without a tie? It all seems like a look from #menswear '08

    Otherwise it seems like you have a good sense of fit for your frame

    Wow, I leave for a week and miss so much hah!

    I don't have any "ink" myself, but I think Joshua's makes him look like a badass. I love the contrast of (what that rude fellow referred to as) "dad clothes" with the tattoos. I think it adds a good amount of interest to the simple look that Joshua favors.

    Moving on...
    Agree with what's been said on the lapel and shirt front. Just too thin, and the notch is so small it's almost a shawl collar. Weird to not see buttons and then buttoned all the way up w/o a tie. You could get away with the hidden buttons if you wore a tie. And, my preference would be a less bulky belt. Thinner to compliment your frame and the dressy jacket better.

    I always appreciated "An Affordable Wardrobe" for his contrast of tattoos and classic style

    This is great feedback guys! I learned more in about 5 minutes about style than I have in...well, a while:


    • 1" lapels is pushing it (is this a conservative thing, or just any time...)
    • No buttoning top button of shirt if no tie (I almost never do, but for some reason did for the photo!)
    • Hidden placket sans tie is iffy
    • Thinner belt better for dressier jacket, maybe in general for smaller body type

    Is some sheen on a blazer okay, or is that odd?

    Definitely anytime. 1" lapels will always and forever be very fashion forward, sometimes in style and sometimes out (like 70's width lapels are now) but they will never be accepted as a standard business dress width.

    If it's patchy sheen on high contact areas it's bad, that results from wear. If it's everywhere it could just be the style but again, that's always fashion forward.

    That's helpful. It never crossed my mind to wear that blazer in a business setting (except if I were a modern art dealer). :)
