    Yes. Sorry I wore the wrong colors, though.



    None taken.

    OK, as it's choc brown, it works better than I initially thought. Still not a fan, but it's better than when I thought it was purple (and as you know, I have a purple cord jacket myself!). It really does look purple in that outdoor pic though; early morning? I've noticed my photos get a blue tint in the morning and a yellow one in the afternoon. Presumably something to do with the angle of the light.

    You are the best dressed shrink, ever. Or maybe things are different across the pond.

    Thank you. I'm not sure that's much of a compliment... Actually, to be serious for a moment, there's a really broad range of outfits. The clear majority here wear typical middle-class professional/doctor-type clothes (i.e. mid-market department store stuff, matched with minimal thought). But some will wear higher-end casual gear, and some do wear higher-end tailored items. There's some correlation between subspeciality and dress style, but a greater correlation between exact role (and location) and dress style. I changed role back in 2010, and since then, I'm a bit less frequently in a very businessy suit, and a bit more often in a more casual suit or odd jacket outfit. I've had to alter my wardrobe slightly to reflect this with items I've bought (and sold) since then. Of course, at the end of the day, the most telling variable is whether one is actually at all interested in clothes. Personally, I enjoy them, and also happen to think they're an important aspect of non-verbal communication and they're loaded with archetypal meaning, so it's worth considering their influence.

    Citan: I think we can move you a lot higher up the shrink-in-training clothes list. Your look today is really good esp. the jacket & tie. Certainly better put together than I was as a student and my first years of practice. In the final analysis, clothes are no substitute for good communication skills or thoughtful understanding of a situation. But I'm a believer is taking help wherever you can get it, and I think having an idea about how your dress might be interpreted by others gives you that little bit more data to work with.

    deandbn - thanks also. Put it down more to good fortune & practice than time.

    The pants are sort of an olive-brown melange, more towards olive, which may or may not be showing up well in the photo.

    I'd say this would be perfect if not for the shirt. I dislike it in this ensemble.

    Really beautiful sportcoat, deets? I second acecows suggestion, but, I sense you like to pattern match so I think a very small scale check would look good with this with a solid tie.

    I think that the pale blue of the shirt works well with the jacket and the tie, but the stripes don't add much of any value to the mix. Otherwise, really like the combo - nice boots, too.

    Agree with this, a plain or subtly textured light blue and it would have been perfect. Awesome coat too.

    Good fit, Moo. That shirt is bad though.

    What I mean is that for your body type, you should go for a looser fit, not a sculpted fit. Upr_crust nails the "American Sacksuit" look, which is what I think you should be going for (so take note of his daily posts). If you can have the waist of the jacket let out any, that might help... but don't quote me on that.

    However, as has been mentioned, the biggest problem with this jacket is that there is too much space around the collar (the lapels of the jacket are gaping open). I'm not a tailor, so I have no idea if this can be fixed.



    The jacket looks to be too close in color to the pants.

    It's a fierce beast, thus the tie clip. (Also, note that the photo is taken from below, emphasizing the priapism.)
