    It was a rainy day, I was experimenting. The light really does not help the pocket square, it's not actually that bright...

    So you know how some Native American tribes have a "rain dance", well this is my attempt at a "Spring dance" to appease the Spring gods and help get rid of some of this shit weather. My coworker described the pants as "creamsicle" color, which I think is about as accurate as you can get. Hard to tell, but the shirt is a light blue POW with a very faint large yellow overcheck. Haven't yet decided whether I want to bring the pants out some to get more of a break.

    That seems like an exceptionally dank setting for a party (it looks like a nursing home) but good work snagging the ladies. :slayer:

    I know it's the back blade showing, but that makes the tie look freaking huge.

    +1. "Twisted knots" should only be attempted with skinnier ties. And definitely not with a tie bar (IMO). For example:

    Something about your proportions makes your outfits look off. I can't really pinpoint what it is. At first glance I say you could use a shorter jacket, but I don't think that would work. I think taking some of the fullness out of the sleeves would help, but I just can't put my finger on what isn't right.
