    You're not going for a touch of the sprezz' with that tie, are you? [​IMG]

    Unbuttoned collar and offset tie... [​IMG] Yeah the tie's cheap, but I like the pattern.

    Your problem seems to be that you have absolutely no idea of balance: tie-knot vs. shirt, dispersion of stripes, size...you maybe are only looking at your sleeves which are strangely enough 'ok', 'strangely' so, I ought to empahsize. Also- the tie is too long, the colours (tie PS what the fuck!) don't match, the trouser length is overly long, no socks...etc².

    Colours don't match? More skillful that matching, his colors are in harmony.[​IMG]

    My attempt at sprezz

    OH DAMN, 13000th reply to WAYWRN

    [​IMG]

    Modern Tailor
    Uniqlo Tie (really cheap)
    PRL Belt
    Mabitex Pants

    Shoes not pictured because they're that bad. Too lazy to change them for the picture.​


    I am gonna be an ass here, so take what I am going to say with a grain of salt [​IMG] : for your frame, skinny tie, skinny belt and slim fit shirt don't compliment anything, especially with a relax fit pants.

    Thanks for the input. I can see what you mean. The seat on those pants does seem to be a bit large. They also were worn a full day and need to be washed. I think just rolling down the sleeves and having a wider tie would do it. I really have never worn the tie outside; I just put it on for the picture to try something out. It probably is is too skinny for my frame, especially with the tiny knot I made.

    Agreed, I think your collar would lend itself to a wider knot. Maybe a 2.75" wide tie.

    Not feeling the white pants with white shirt however, maybe a nice charcoal since your completion is so fair? Also, something that sits above the waist. I am a bit top tall (dont hate me [​IMG] ) and when i wear low rise pants it looks like i have an extra long torso with little short legs. Not saying your proportions are as bad as mine, but i think you may benefit from something a little higher up. (come to think of it, i maybe thrown off since your feet are cut off)

    Belt - i would say a leather woven belt

    Not my ride

    Looking good, but seriously pissed off [​IMG]
    Looks great - but I can't help feeling you should have gone brown (and preferably suede) with the shoes... I like the shoes you're wearing, but I can't help feeling they're really jeans shoes...
    Cheers - I wouldn't wear them with jeans (I bought them mainly for mid grey suits). I'm not a fan of Oxfords with suits.
    I love the color of those shoes. Are they that grey in real life?
    Pretty much - there's a hint of brown in the depths, but they're basically grey.
    Tail end of a long, wrinkly day:
    Nice combination and great shoes.

    of course i remember that. and if i remember right you were criticized for the tone of your feedback. no one has a problem when anybody here is criticized. it is the bush league tone used that raises eye brows. it creates the perception that the delivery of the message is getting personal - and that is a female trait.

    Hmm... I actually think that there might be a cultural difference here. I often thought that Americans criticize quite differently from how I would... much less clearly (in my eyes).
