    Definitely go for a smaller bow, adds a bit more panache.

    Not a fan of the tie color, but everything else looks good. As a random comment, I'd ask your tailor to leave less material inside the trouser leg when he/she hems them. Right now, they fold where that double layer of fabric ends and you can see that it's too high.

    ^ you are most certainly right. In this case I don't mind too much because I haven't settled yet on the final configuration for these pants. I may want to cuff them (and possibly add a small weight to the hem because they don't hang the way I want, is that possible?)

    Have your sleeve adjusted a bit by maybe moving the button so the watch fits under easier.

    Your tie, Yes, adjust it often, enjoy how it feels to do it, and know that you looking good all day.

    You probably need to adjust your PS sometimes as well if it slips, or get the fold right so it cannot slip.

    Anyway, the important thing is to get the most fun you can when wearing your clothes, so go for it. :nodding:

    I think cuffing them would look great.

    I was persuaded by your earlier disquisition on bowties.

    I think if you can accurately assess fit from that pose you need to stop browsing SF and just become a tailor/bespoke maker.
