    Looks like the buttoning point is a little bit too high as well. Suit fabric looks really nice though.

    One of my all time favourite looks of yours. Nice use of some color and pattern, yet sober





    Really like the rich brown color of the shoes.
    By the way I remember noticing a tall well dressed gentleman from the backside, inside a Charles Thyrwhitt store in central London last fall, then he turned around and it happend to be you.

    Next time you attend the premier of a blockbuster film in which you are a lead character then by all means I will high five you for this outfit. But notice nowhere in the shoot was Ewan standing next to elegantly (formally) dressed wedding guests. It's like real estate, location matters too.

    I like this, very simple and subtle (who said "boring"? :tounge: ). I use this same combo quite often myself.

    The shoes looks very nice too (especially the last), who is the maker?

    Thank you for the kind comments. In the spoiler, I believe that five pictures will be worth 5,000 words of instruction, as to how I fold my pocket squares.

    How would one properly store their pocket square? Hang it or fold it back?

    First post in ages as I'm currently on a 3 month summer holiday, so I haven't had many occasions to dress up for.
    This was worn last week for my girlfriends mum's birthday.

    Jacket: Jack Wills
    Shirt: Ralph Lauren
    Pocket square: Aspinal of London
    Belt: Duchamp
    Trousers: Farah vintage
    Socks: Paul Smith
    Shoes: Russel & Bromley


    I picked up the jacket for £29 down from £229! I need to get the sleeves shortened, no idea why i was wearing them like that, just felt like it!

    Was lucky enough to pick up a fair few tickets to the Olympic Games in my hometown London!
    Here's me and my family outside the olympic stadium ( I'm on the right) and then inside for the 100m final!

    First outfit really looks good!!
    Good modern fit, beautiful colours, sophisticated smart casual. I also like that PS as lot with that outfit. :happy:

    Second outfit also fits you well.

    My main criticism is that I would change the shirt for a solid colour one, and I easily prefer the shirt in your first outfit because hmmm... too many stripes together and not enough difference in scale.

    Then the milky pink tie that also makes a strange iffy little knot, I personally think you could carry off a tie that is a whole lot bolder and modern and shiny (silk) , or even more subdued with good texture, but with a bit more bulk so it makes a really good knot. Use up more 'real estate' in the tie knot area.

    Pocket Square, I would probably stick to white cotton because of the pinstripes. rather than gingham?? (is it).

    I realise you trying to do pattern on pattern on pattern. To me it seems all too much. :satisfied:

    Kobe, would you be seen out and about looking like this guy. His clothes all look like they shrunk in the wash.

    What does GQ know about style anyway. I think you should seriously consider burning the magazine. :embar:

    If you want to look flash with a touch of class, I recommend the peacock thread for inspiration.
