    Without the pocket square, the top half of your outfit looks fairly sober. Dark jacket. Dark tie. There's nothing wrong with that. However, the pocket square really stands out. The bright orange dominates, and the eye is immediately drawn to it. That's not harmonious. The pattern of your shirt is very similar to the pattern of your square. That's not harmonious. The fold of the square is very business-like, while the color and pattern of the square are very fun. That's not harmonious.

    Broadly speaking, this is a fair assessment. It's a good looking suit make the minor alteration to the sleeves & wear it well.

    It is too matchy, but I actually think his button point is a bit high.

    Just realized that you do have a brow tie. That is soo much better. Now about that pocket square....

    WTF are you talking about?! The tie looks fine; if anything, the chest looks a little tight. Look, let's get over it, his suits are a little on the tight side--so what, he's young, and can get away with it!

    The real problem is, the high lapel gorge; it looks a little off. Also, like someone else said, the sleeves are a tad long--I see now why you were leaving the shirt buttons undone! That aside, nice suit--the material/colour is nice, especially.

    Also, I would necrophiliac your dead corpse for those shoes--for seriouz.

    A little hashtag menswear, but I kind of like it. Post it in the MC casual thread and SW&D WAYWT thread.w

    For the record, I think timotune's blue outfit looks fantastic. I would happily put together the same things. There is a lot of blue, yes, but there is nothing inherently wrong with that. He successfully selected blues that were disparate enough to create sufficient tonal depth, yet which do not clash.

    The dark brown suede shoes are an expert touch. They take the edge off the outfit's slickness without confusing things.

    Very well done and one of the best outfits I've seen in this thread recently--by far.

    ^^^ Jacket and trousers clash. Square and tie too similar in both color and pattern scale.
