    Better than Noodle noodle. A blazer fit pic with a similar philosophy could be quite disturbing.

    EDIT: Noodles, I was just "pulling your leg" about your bare feet in one of your fit pictures. It wasn't a criticism about the suit. No offence intended, mate.

    Don't listen to this guy. Tie works great and keep that suit and the white shirts for the sharp contrast.

    Try a light blue shirt with it, add dark brown shoes and belt, and although the tie is fine, perhaps go burgundy for a bit of warmth. The different shirt alone will transform how this works with your complexion.

    I don't have any issues with white shirts, but in your case, save them for your myriad navy suits.

    @noodles , you're becoming the clothing equivalent of that guy who nit picks every girl and ends up dating no one. What's wrong with having a third suit to fill out your rotation, even if it's not perfect? It's one thing if you were considering buying it and not in love with it, but it's in your closet already. The jackets that are not perfect are the ones that get weeded out as you continue to build your rotation, not before you even have a rotation.

    Do not sell that suit, you idiot. It looks great on you. Also, the tie choice was perfect.

    This thread will never stop until I become more receptive of members' feedback. So I will consider keeping it. My purpose for putting up the pictures was to prompt people to tell me to get rid of this. I guess it didn't work.

    Dude, that suit looks awesome. It fits really well, and the color and texture are very nice. Instead of us convicing you why you should keep it, why don't you tell us why exactly you want to sell it? Articulate all the things you don't like about it.

    I still think he should try atleast one fit where he doesn't try to work something navy into the fit.

    Also, totally agree with @New Shoes1 . Just because the formosa looks great on you doesn't mean that other stuff can't. Variety is nice.

    What don't you like about that which can't be fixed with a tiny bit of tailoring?
