    That's a pretty low buttoning point on that shirt...

    The shoulders on many of your jackets look wonky. This one is no exception.

    Took a bit of a chance on this combo today. The jacket is a more brown IRL. I'd be interested in feedback on the color and texture harmony among the various pieces.

    Hard to get past the wonky lapels.

    What acrid said. Also, the tie is too "city"/"formal" or whatever else you want to call it. Something knit would be much better.

    I think a repp stripe would look good with this but the multistripe screams worsted suit to me.

    I can't disagree. I'm really short on ties toward the country end of the spectrum. The "wonkiness" of the lapels hadn't really registered with me. Too wonky even for a decidedly "country" outfit?

    I think he means how the lapels are rolling to the button, which has nothing to do with city/country just fit in general.

    Well in that case it's just a function of arm position related to taking the photo. They look normal in a robopose.

    So, I just got in from my first round of studying for the day and this was waiting for me...
    Behaviorists would say I should delay gratification and open this after my exams to reward myself but, well, I lack the fortitude.
    Borrelli Linen suit. Size 42 (up from my normal 40). Thoughts? I know I may be biased but I am blown away..obviously it needs to be tailored but I think the shape of the jacket suits me well. Would love to hear you guys opinions.

    Also, this is my first linen suit. What kind of shirts and ties does one wear with it? Any recommendations would be great.

    It looks like one lapel is pressed for a 3/2, and the other pressed for a 2. Hence, lapel wonkification.

    If you have a nordstrom rack by you or a neiman marcus last call/saks off fifth, they have some great wool ties in staple colors, shades, and textures(think herringbones, tic weaves, etc). In particular, nordy rack has some great wool BB ties from this last fall and some nice facconable wool paisleys, at least at the one near me. I think something like that would go well with this outfit and they could be had for cheap.
