    Looking good Mr Romain my only criticism is that your shirt collar spread is too great, and your tie knot dies not fit. You need a veryyyy wide windsor knot for that collar, and then of course you would be definitely into footballer territory.

    Otherwise pretty cool Sir. :nodding:

    I don't really like the tie, and IMHO the socks don't work with those trousers and shoes.

    Maybe you could post a couple of full-length photos, so that the fit could be better judged.

    Are you studying for an MBA or a JD? Because here in America, you'd be hard pressed to find a collared shirt in the average undergraduate student body.

    Regardless, I think this is a really good look. The jacket fits you perfectly.

    Definitely get the trousers tapered a little.

    A good tailor could make the shoulders smaller, but it would easily cost upwards of $100. Another alteration which I think would help would be to have some of the excess fabric on the back of the jacket removed. I recently had that done to a jacket, and it cost about $20 - $30 if I remember correctly.

    Not to beat a dead horse but damn...your SC's are fantastic. They fit well and your taste in patterns and materials just works well. Bravo...again.

    I've got a vintage Cerruti with a label very much the same.... nice pick. But as far as the fit I do think the scale is too similar all around b/t the jacket, shirt and PS. too many small checks really....

    I like all the elements, but I think you are right about the PS checks being too much together with the gingham and the SC.

    You need to tighten your tie. Also, it's best when you put it on to run your fingers around underneath the collar to push it up a bit. All of this may sound very patronising but it does help the tie sit well. The suit looks nice.
