    The patterns clash very badly. The spacing between the dots on the tie is the exact same size as the checks on the waistcoat.

    I'd suggest a half-windsor. As the other poster pointed out, the point collar really wouldn't be very receptive to a big 'ol double-windsor, but a half-windsor would make the tie look more classy without, in my opnion, overpowering the collar.

    Thanks! It's a wool tweed from Soia & Kyo, a Canadian label. It isn't well-known, so it has to rely on things like high-quality construction, superb fits, and interesting styles to attract customers. I would have preferred a coat from Paul Smith, but this was slightly cheaper.

    Apparently I'm the only one who has any criticism. :confused:

    There really is no situation where a windsor, half or full, can not be replaced by a 4ih, or double 4ih. It's a matter of taste really, and 4ih is really the more traditional knot of the two.

    It is too high, the buttoning point. Nice colors, though.


    Yes.


    No.

    (Longer: Pants are too long. Jacket is too long. Sleeves are too long. Shoulders too wide. Also, lens on full-length shot makes you look oddly two-dimensional and distorted in an Gumby-like fashion. EDIT: Are both buttons fastened on the jacket? Please, no.)

    From one noob to another, in all charity:
    1) The pants are too long-the back hem should be a couple of inches off the ground, not hanging over the heel and bunching up in front.
    2) The sleeves are too long. I'd say they could be shortened by at least an inch-maybe more like two.
    3) The two-button jacket should only have the top button buttoned. This applies to all two-button jackets currently residing in the Milky Way or neighboring galaxies.
    4) Brown shoes (imho) would look better. It has been in vogue, for several years now, to wear brown shoes with just about everything. The shade of brown depends on the context, of course.


    Also, the shoulders might be too big, but it's hard to tell from the photos.

    Love the shirt/tie/suit color combination! Keep posting. [​IMG]
