    Thank you for the responses everyone, I really appreciate it!

    As for the feedback, suits are terribly hard for me to buy because I'm a true chest size 35 (so I buy the smallest they have which is a 36 and its slightly to big. I get everything altered to make it fit slightly better). I think in the future I'm going to have my tailor take out as much of the padding in the shoulders as possible to make it sit better. Also, for the shirt, I'm 14" neck and a 35" arm length, again, I'm possible to buy so I have to buy a 14.5x34 if I'm lucky. I'm very skinny (130lbs and 6' tall, with a small head). Needless to say, everything is hard for me to find. I'd buy bespoke however I'm only a sophomore in college and still have law school so I don't have the money to buy the bespoke suits and I'd never ask my parents to buy them for me if I don't have a job requiring a suit yet. As for the tie PS combo, I added the pheasant square for some humor. If I was working I'd wear a solid or pokadot square.

    Beside studying hard, I suggested to take up some exercise, maybe 1/2 hour run plus some push ups, to get a toner body will help to ft in clothes better.

    There is no excuse, I am studying law as well, soft training relief stress and get you a better body

    BTW, you are not skinny, just unhealthily thin

    Eat like a horse and go to the gym every day, as a student you will probably have some cheap on campus deals on gym cards yes? I don't think you're unhealthily thin, but you could definitely buff up and gain a size or two and thus benefit more from OTR options.

    Save up to jock around the campus, push up and sit up at home

    Gym for free

    I am not suggesting you to lift weights, but gaining some body fat will help

    Also as the last post, have more red meat, drinks more milk

    Let me second Van Veen's proposition -- as I so often do -- that you try a new haircut. And if I haven't said this to you before, I also strongly recommend that you purchase at least a couple of MTM dress shirts with extra tall spread collars. I get mine from MyTailor.com (about $100 per shirt), but I've heard that there are some seriously good deals to be had with ModernTailor.com. One of my SF bromies, Acecow, has had great success with ModernTailor. PM him for advice if you want to go that route. (I prefer MyTailor because they send a representative to my area.)

    Shirt collar, tie and sc's lapels are gorgeous! Great details that combine for a fantastic look.

    IST's jacket fabric really looks smashing in that photo. Consider me suitably jealous. :)

    Thanks for the suggestion but me being a law student was my excuse for not buying a MTM suit because I can't afford it now.

    For the past 5-6 years I've been a nationally ranked cyclist, in training I burn 8,000 calories a day and in races I burn 12,000+ calories. This makes it terribly difficult to gain weight. However, you are right, I should be going to the gym every day to bulk up a little.
