    1. Post better pictures - chest level, hands at sides and not in pockets, not blurry, etc.
    2. The tie knot doesn't look good - it looks like a 4IH that hasn't been cinched at all.
    3. Looks like the pants are too tight around your backside.
    4. Color combinations look good.

    And lastly... welcome to Style Forum! [​IMG]

    P.S. You've posted in the correct thread.

    Thanks!

    I've been meaning to learn a new tie knot for years. I've been using this one since I was eleven. Any specific recommendations?

    The pants look too tight because of hands in pockets I think (I hope!).

    ^ Try a half-windsor, or a double-4IH. Or just cinch up whatever knot you're using right now (looks like a 4IH to me).

    Basketball Sunday! I cannot believe that I am cheering for THE Ohio State University. :embar:

    A bow tie should never look perfect, and this askew angle certainly is not!

    Thanks bud - yeah, Caruso for Saks "Signature". Part of their recent usage of top tier producers for their house stuff (i.e. Isaia for their suits). Zero alterations, just put the buttons on. It was $2990, I found it by some bizarre luck on sale for $299. [/quote]

    O_O

    was it mis-priced? like someone left out a zero?
    or the tag with the $2990 was on it and then a reduced price of $299 over it?

    "Where did you buy this tie?"


    I purchased it, years ago, at Van Boven's in Ann Arbor.

    I don't know how it made it through 5 reductions, but that price tag had everything from 20% down to that last $299.

    Welcome to the forum, looks pretty decent. Some comments:
    As CDHagg said, better camera angle will help.
    SF currently has a thing about collar points being long enough to go under the jacket lapels... personally I think those are fine but just to note
    shoes are nice, maybe not quite my first choice of shade for that suit. Can't figure out if they're too light or too dark actually but something's throwing me off there
    and you already know that with your, ahem, body shape, that double vents will fit you better.
    love the cinch-back waist there.
    if your shirt has button cuffs, move the buttons over so the sleeves don't fall down onto your hands like that.
    I know it sounds crazy but if I'm feeling cheap and need to slim my shirt down a bit (see your back photo), i'll get the center pleat sewen down to reduce the midsection by about an inch, as long as you don't mind it being a bit tight around the upper back
