    This jacket is exceedingly too tight. Like, Timotune tight.

    I couldnt disagree more. White buttons are a great addition. I could go on and on but im too lazy. bullet point...


    white buttons on a jacket is great. do it. your spring and summer will be even better with white buttons on your blazer.

    Apologies Derek, It must be a regional or cultural thing / or preference then. Where are you from?

    Here in darkest Africa, if i were to wear a jacket with unmatched buttons, by unmatched; meaning not matched to the colour of the jacket, I would feel humiliated. I would effectively be advertising the fact that i could not afford 'proper' matching ones, and had to make do with just any old white ones.

    On a blazer it would be acceptable to have metal buttons.

    So personally Derek, I will disagree with you more as well. No offence meant or taken, I just want you to know where i am coming from.

    I have never once critiqued a fit of yours spoo, this is a big step and honestly coming from me, you can take it with the smallest grain of salt. I don't think the oxblood/burgundy shoes work with this suit. I think a very dark brown or black would have been the grounding it needed. Feel free to disagree and they are lovely shoes...but I don't think they mesh well with the rest of the fit (the somber tones of the tie and p s to balance the loud suit) .

    I'm a big fan of your style OT, your use of colour, fabric and patterns, but I think some slight tapering in of the jacket chest and waist, and some tapering of the trousers would be superb. I don't mean the 'fashion' for a too small skinny fit, rather some small alterations to emphasise your physique, which I remember from previous posts is quite lean from your cycling.

    Golly, gee-whiz. I vote for white buttons on the blue blazer and for those oxblood shoes. Both make great "statements" IMO.
