    Heavy sarcasm... yes my room is a tip, I'm in my final year of school and I have retakes next week so the tidiness of my room is the least of my priorities anyway haha. I also don't have enough room for my clothes which is annoying... anyway any comments on the outfit? My last one seemingly got ignored :(

    Cheers Nick

    The picture is very poor, so judging the fit is very hard to do.

    This suit/shirt/tie combo looks really flat to me. Drab really.

    You have an "interesting" combo of proportions (huge lapels, tiny club collar, fatter tie knot) and colors (charcoal then orange and green, then red?). I personally think it looks like you walked into a vintage store and bought 4 things you liked individually. But it's a lot going on when together and my eye doesn't know where to go. That tie does not knot very well and it is too big for the small club collar. Then you have the big in your face poof of a PS. I feel like you're at a 1920s/30s party, college style.
    (I don't really mean to be critical. I'm just having a hard time getting my mind around your looks)

    I appreciate your feedback, I agree that monday's look was pretty boring and will try to liven things up a little bit( As I did possibly too much today). Unfortunately the tie has to stay as it's my 6th form tie and I can't not wear it. The huge lapels are possibly because the suits vintage double breasted and I thought possibly the vintage looking shirt would possibly suit it? I am terrible at tying ties and have no clue what knot goes with which collar etc and the poof pockets square, I never know what to do and it seems to move about all day sometimes falling down whatever fold I try it moves about, it's really frustrating! I'm trying to improve my looks but possibly failing a bit :( thanks for the feedback though, I'm always willing to listen in an attempt to improve!

    Cheers Nick
