Dude, grow your beard out moar, man.
I have some Loake Kemptons, but some would say these were not as good, as you could go; I think they're a nice, decent pair of shoes, and they're only £130. They look much sleeker than things like Clarks, etc.
Hmm, I'll take a look. These are the BB Peal and Co. Chukkas and they are pretty sleek I think. At least as sleek as I would like to get with a casual shoe. FWIW I have rather large feet, my feet get rather sore in sleek lasts. Thanks
Fantastic looking suit! It has an interesting pattern, and the wool looks appealing. The fit is flattering and very clean. Very much liking the shirt.
Not sure about the tie--both the color and the pattern. Perhaps a solid blue? Or wine red? With a contrast color PS with a pattern for contrast? I agree that the sleeves could be just a tad shorter.

The colours and shoes are great, i'll reserve comment on the fit as you know my feelings on that and you said you are working on that as well. The trousers/shoe combo though is especially nice.
I like this from the neck down, but IMO it doesn't gel with your hair and the earrings at all. Neck up looks like it would be more at home in denim instead of trousers but neck down reminds me of Fred Astaire (not a bad thing)
^ CW/HC, you're a good addition to this thread. I hope that you stick around.
Thanks I will try my best to. Cheers
HF, the fit on this is great, second only to that rather glorious bespoke herringbone number you got relatively recently. But I can't help feeling that this is an odd jacket at heart - not a suit. Paired with some cords, or even, dare I say, denim, and this jacket would really come into it's own.
Green and navy work incredibly well together.
Gotta get more green ties. Hober, here I come.
"looking good but you're holding her too high on the waist"
That's why you need high-cut armholes.
"You are well-accessorized, ace."
Inadvertently have the tie boaner...
