    From what I can see this looks good indeed. But if you can push the envelope this much (suede shoes, light gray windowpane suit), a pocket square shouldn't be a problem. If you compare this suit with your previous fits, you can see what people were referring to when discussing lapels bowing.

    Thanks!

    Looking at the older fits, some of it is my posture. Some of it. The angle of this shot sure helps.

    Its funny here. They admire and compliment my attire a lot, but there are only two of us who will occasionally wear pocket squares. Maybe they just need to become accustomed to seeing them?

    Seems like you can't go wrong with a white cotton square.

    I agree Josh, a folded white cotton square would just look good better, and a new DFIH knot would probably take it to awesome!! :nodding:

    Your tie sould not cover your buckle either.

    Posture again with the tie over the belt thing. Standing now, and it barely touches the top of the belt.

    Not of fan of the DFIH. I like the heft and shape of a half windsor. Nice point though.

    I go through a haberdasher that comes to the office. So...not sure. That sounds strange.

    The jacket sleeves aren't as short as they look-they are being pushed up by the French cuffs.
    The tie is already on death row, and will be incineration as soon as a suitable red replacement can be acquired
    The socks look better in person, so please forgive the vilification commited by the camera.
    Question: are the pants too short?

    The pants are the only thing about this that are working for you, actually.

    The trouser length is fine. Yes, replace the tie.

    I don't believe the sleeves on that jacket are even close to working, even without the french cuffs. The jacket sleeve should end on your wrist bone when your arms are relaxed at your side. You should show about 1/2" of shirt cuff beyond that. Until you get this sorted out the ensemble is really off.

    Sorry
