    What camera and lens did you use, Victor?

    And what time of day was it when you took this photo?

    Thank you!

    The design of this jacket worked out myself.
    I wanted to sew it is such an unusual variant.
    What is wrong with the shirt?

    The collar of the shirt does not seem to fit you well but its always hard to judge from simply a picture. I do like your shoes andwould have prefered a tie with some texture in this outfit (linen, grenadine, raw silk etc)

    I have said in the past that he could use more tie space and longer points so they reach under his jacket. I think his bulky knots need more tie space so the collar doesn't buckle at the top of the band.

    I fear it was lost in translation, however.

    Would like to see you in a "sleeker" shoe. Perhaps something from Carmina or GG.

    +1 to this. I often find Victor's ties a little lacking. Especially considering how fantastic the fabrics and textures are in the rest of his fits.

    One of the things that I think Victor does very well is his shoe selection. Given how he dresses, I think his shoe selection is perfect and elongated shoes would be too much and detract from the overal look. just my opinion.

    You wore a pattern on a pattern on a pattern on a pattern, for one thing.

    The color palette does not seem to have any coherence at all.

    ...and lastly the color and texture of that jacket reminds me of an octogenarian's polyester couch. Not to mention the fit issues.

    Sorry if it's harsh but that's my opinion.

    ^ That couch won ugliest couch in the world for 2009 and your coat resembles it. Something to consider...

    That blazer is a fail for me. Notches on a DB, too narrow buttoning, gold buttons plus gold cufflinks is too much. This would have been a great opportunity for colourful ceramics or even silk knots.

    I like the colour and I think they look good in this dressed down outfit but if I owned them I can't see them getting worn more than a couple of times a year.

    ^ The couch is ugly, but the fabric on the suit isn't.

    Well yeah about the patterns i agree, i actually skipped the ps when i wore that. But i can't agree about the color palette, ditch the pocket square and everything will look good in my humble opinion.
    And about the fabric, it's linen herringbone which is amazing in close up and photo can't do any justice to it, bu yeah the fit isn't good because of the cut of the jacket, also it's unlined and i gained a few kilos, so yeah the fit is not the best. I know that i'm not the best dresser but at least i try and i'm open for learning.
