    Those two things aren't necessarily related, ace. [​IMG]

    (Just bustin' yer chops, bro. You're one of my faves.)


    oh God ... everything Acecow said was accurate and i believe in good faith.

    take the advice and stop being a d.ick!!!


    To be clear, I do appreciate the critique. I've also PM'd ace and he has been even more helpful. I appreciate that as well. I wouldn't be posting if I did not genuinely want to learn. Hopefully today is better.

    Money. You look as acrid as I do.

    Nice look today. I'm undecided on the shirt, but things look positive.
    [​IMG] [/SPOILER]
    Love the buttons on the SC.

    I need to get a black grenadine. It was either this tie or a black satin, which was too nocturnal a vibe.
    As others have said, more is needed. [​IMG]

    Today IS better, but that tie made me punch my toddler. I don't like punching babies, generally. Also, consider a two button suit - I don't think three button suits are your bag. Finally, you may want to take some fullness/length out of your trousers, but it could just be the pose.

    Getting a haircut and especially shaving off that goattee will do wonders for your look. You seem to be of average height, maybe on the short side. 3 button jackets with high button stance and super long jackets exacerbate your shortness. The jacket looks to have a nice lapel roll, but it's not for you. Go for 2 button jackets with a lower button stance and a short overall length. Also, those socks don't work at all. Stick with plain dark grey socks for the time being. No comment on that tie. I see that you're trying and that's good, but tame it down.

    Oh, I left my pumpkin in today since it was suggested that cropping my head was possibly exarcerbating the perception that I am "boxy" over on the cool kids thread. [​IMG]
    The cool kids were right, Mike. Having your melon in the pic makes a big difference -- and I mean that in a good way. [​IMG]

    You'd better put on sugarbutch's stormtrooper helmet, son, 'cause you're about to be seriously roughed up over that tie.

    Thanks guys - FWIW, the tie is purple, not burgundy - but I see what PSG is saying. I liked the fit, but I think there was something that lacked harmony to tie it all together. Cant put my finger on it.

    And that is what color theory is all about. There are colors and shades of colors that just "work" and some that never will look right. When you stick to what works (color theory) there is a harmony and balance to your appearance.

    That's a very colorful gauntlet you've thrown down, Spooz-meister. My entry was going to be much more muted than that, but now I see I may have to kick it up a notch ... or ten.

    Since I spend an inordinate amount of time here getting tips from the outfits you guys put together, I figured I might as well put myself into the mix! I'm on quite a low budget, but I'm gradually building a wardrobe.

    I most definitely like the shirt/tie/jacket combo, but I'm not a fan of the jacket's tiny lapels, the PS in general, and your "I've got a go pee-pee" pose. And welcome, by the way. It's good that you've decided to start posting. Improvement comes a lot faster that way.

    I really need to perfect the stance. I see the crotch cupping look isn't going to carry me forward. Not very sechsy [​IMG] It's more 'fashionable' than a classically tailored jacket which I think is where the slim lapels come from, it just seems to fit quite well and I like the colour. The pocket square is having its first outing, since I only have 5 pocket squares my options were perilously limited!

    Chrispy, Get yourself a white linen square if you don't already have one. Until then, remember that no square is better than a bad or clashing square. And, honestly, I don't think that striped jacket works with contrasting trousers. It should be part of a suit, IMO, or not worn at all. The shirt and tie are nice, though. Oh, and the contrasting sleeve buttonhole: [​IMG]

    I have white! Thanks Orgetorix. TBH, I ordinarily wear the jacket with jeans in a more relaxed setting as I think the jacket is primarily designed for that sort of thing. Not a lot I can do about the buttonhole though [​IMG] The felt under the collar is red to match too [​IMG]

    I get a lot of wear out of the tie (is an odd wool, alpaca and mohair mix) and the new shirt is already one of my favourites.
