    Okay. Round 4 of wannabe's sartorial success. Leggo!

    Round 1, 2, and 3:


    Most of the advice from the last round was about the pants and jacket being too small, and the jacket body being too suppressed. It took a picture of me in a suit to realize, "Shit, my suit is too damn small!" I've tried to address these issues in the this round of my climbing the sartorial ladder.

    gray herringbone with faint thin red stripe 3-piece suit.
    pink shirt.
    3.75" red/navy/white striped tie.
    burgundy polka dot PS.
    silver skagen.
    brown quarter brogues.

    The only things I did on this suit was to lengthen the sleeves, lengthen the waistcoat, and re-cut the trousers. I also asked my tailor to lengthen the pants' leg opening by 3/4 of an inch, which I think solves my "your pants are too skinny/tight" discussion. The jacket is also about 1/2 inch longer than Round 3's jacket, which I feel fits me a little better.

    Yes, no, maybe so? Comments and suggestions are always welcomed!

    Your best effort so far, assuming that this is the sartorial path you wish to take (herringbone three-piece is pretty serious stuff for a guy your age).

    I am not too fond of combining pink, red, and burgundy.

    With a three-piece you want to use braces as your belt will show and bulge (on a closer look it seems to be your tie, tuck it under your pants or tie it shorter).

    Jacket is still on a tight side, but you can easily wear a three-piece with the jacket open.

    Nice improvement.

    Wannabe: Getting better all the time! In the first picture of this latest round, it looks like the button on the jacket is being tugged and stretched too much, as if the jacket is too small. But from the back, the jacket doesn't look to slim at all... thus, I am ambivalent. Perhaps just leave it unbuttoned.

    Oh, and get a different pocket square for this look. Navy would probably work, but as Jamesgatz pointed out, the pink/burgundy/red doesn't really work.

    Keep climbing. [​IMG]

    That is a rhetorical question. Is there anything inherently abhorrent about the PS? [​IMG]

    With some medium brown boots, this would totally rock. :slayer:

    I appreciate where you were going with the blue boots, blue socks, blue trousers, blue coat, blue sweater and blue patterned shirt, but enough's enough, man.

    The fold of the PS needs a tad of attention in terms of the fold, but first may I suggest lengthen the jacket sleeve properly.
    Although this is not the best here on SF; however, it is definitely your best. Keep it up buddy.:slayer:

    I believe the general feeling is it's a little too "look at me" in terms of color and fold... seems like it would be better incorporated by a more subtle fold and if it were more related to the color of the tie. Gotta do something about the jacket and shirt sleeve length relationship tho' for sure.
