Hope everyone has a great start to the new year.
This pic confirms my suspicion that you need a better hair style. You look much more handsome here -- with you hair cropped out -- than in your other pics. Sorry, man, but we practice tough love in this thread.
Thank you all for your kind words ! It's really a jacket from BC. Several years ago, these jackets have been popular .
Tie - Petronius. I bought it last year in Vienna /Wilhelm Jungmann und Neffe
Happy New Year to all!
I also prefer the Regency one of the 2 ties. Smaller dots better. Less obtrusive.
Generally looks good. Depends on the occasion and context. Needs a pocket square. Tie knot needs some tweaking. You look tall or the jacket looks short.
Thanks for the feedback. I am working with a couple of clients today (including a new client this afternoon) and had lunch with the managing partner of the local law firm that is my main competitor (I run a law firm). Lunch was at the Union League Club, so I needed a coat and tie, but even still it is a more casual day than formal. I'm not sold on the pocket square - I haven't seen anyone else with one in any of my meetings or at lunch today. I agree the tie know needs tweaking, but this is my first go with this tie (and my first go with a FIH knot) and the thickness of this cashmere (RLPL) isn't making things easy for me. As for the jacket length, I'm 6'2" and the jacket is a 42L, I think I'd have a tough time getting something longer OTR. Does this become my excuse for spending a little more?
Very helpful feedback and I appreciate you taking the time to comment.
I think that it looks good but I have some things to say, consider that I'm a beginner in this segment (also, forgive any grammar mistakes, I'm just a young swede) ...
I think that a light blue shirt would look a lot better, it would look better with the off white sweater. The white shirt is to close to the sweater in color. Then I would like to see a tie knot that isn't a little loose like the one in the picture.
Over all I like it
Thanks. I went back and forth with the white vs. blue shirt and decided to give this one a try. In part based on this photo:
I will definitely try the blue the next time around and see how it comes out. Thanks for the suggestion.
You make that kind of judgement based on an image at a clothing forum...of a guy in a suit? That's one of the most ridiculous things I've read at this forum...and that includes posts by that revolving meatball. TKE is far from unhealthily thin.

I agree with the pocket square comment. I work at a bank and I am one of the few people that does wear a pocket square, but it is ok to set yourself apart a little.
From what I can tell in the picture I think the coat length is fine. It looks like it is actually your shirt sleve that is too short. It looks like you are wearing a 16 1/2 x 34 and you really need to be in a 16 1/2 x 35.
You've had a great start at WAYWRN, another nice combo. Like the tie in particular.

Outstanding tailoring and fit. Excellent taste. What a wonderful way to end the year.
Happy New Year, friends!
