    The pants are sort of an olive-brown melange, more towards olive, which may or may not be showing up well in the photo.

    I'd say this would be perfect if not for the shirt. I dislike it in this ensemble.

    Really beautiful sportcoat, deets? I second acecows suggestion, but, I sense you like to pattern match so I think a very small scale check would look good with this with a solid tie.

    I think that the pale blue of the shirt works well with the jacket and the tie, but the stripes don't add much of any value to the mix. Otherwise, really like the combo - nice boots, too.

    Agree with this, a plain or subtly textured light blue and it would have been perfect. Awesome coat too.

    Good fit, Moo. That shirt is bad though.

    What I mean is that for your body type, you should go for a looser fit, not a sculpted fit. Upr_crust nails the "American Sacksuit" look, which is what I think you should be going for (so take note of his daily posts). If you can have the waist of the jacket let out any, that might help... but don't quote me on that.

    However, as has been mentioned, the biggest problem with this jacket is that there is too much space around the collar (the lapels of the jacket are gaping open). I'm not a tailor, so I have no idea if this can be fixed.



    The jacket looks to be too close in color to the pants.

    It's a fierce beast, thus the tie clip. (Also, note that the photo is taken from below, emphasizing the priapism.)
