    Nice jacket. Don't like the striped odd trousers, the shirt, the tie, or the PS. Sorry :/

    Thanks for the feedback gents,
    1. Are the sleeves really that long, with a french cuff shirt they would probably be sitting around perfectly, I'm not sure though I'll need to check.
    2. The lighting is pretty terrible but I see what i mean about both colours being dark and so there isn't much contrast (however navy and maroon are surely quite different?!)
    3. Yeah the jacket is a bit long, I got it tailored but when I won it off ebay I had no idea the buttoning point was that low.
    4. I don't have this colour v-neck and this jumper was probably the one that worked best with the outfit.

    I'm always willing to learn so keep the feedback coming lads
    Cheers Nick

    It's a fetish. I'm not ashamed of it.

    They didn't, but neither did the English, for that matter. Furthermore, in a time when the native tongue of most English nobility would've been French, the connection between a French word and a French right is not so straightforward.

    the cuffs make you look shorter.

    The lapel roll seems a bit lifeless, like it's been pressed flat. Which is a shame, because it otherwise looks like a lovely jacket. I bet you can get that fixed, though!

    Where do you live?? How are you dressed like that in January!! Very nice summer outfit though! I would have maybe gone for a light blue or pink shirt to give a bit of contrast in the outfit as the trousers and shirt seem to like very similar in colour

    Cheers Nick

    I love the idea here, but I think the pants are throwing everything off. I'm sold when I look at the picture of just the top-half, so maybe matching navy trousers or khakis would work better.

    I really feel that the shirt and tie do not contrast enough... and while I love the idea of quirky riffs on the "rules", I don't think those odd pants are working in this iteration.
