    I somewhat agree about the jacket, even though it doesn't look that slim to me, but he looks wide-hipped (correct me if I'm wrong), and skinny pants look ridiculous on wide-hipped men; they create a feminine figure...

    It is not necessary.
    Most certainly do patch pockets at the bottom of the bar plus a slit pocket on the chest (or a patch pocket on the chest)

    But sometimes you can do and welt pockets at the bottom of valve.

    Just jackets with pockets with flaps luchshe ordering less, approximately one (1) coat with flaps to 3-4 jackets with patch pockets. (it's all for my taste)

    The first 2-3 of the tweed jacket, I would recommend to do with patch pockets at the bottom. And with slit pocket - on the chest.

    By the way is sometimes nice to look jackets with patch pockets with flaps.
    But here it is important not to be mistaken with the choice of the figure, the thickness of tissue and the rules of the location of the pockets.

    If you stood up straight, as in put your shoulders back, you would probly look a whole lot better than you do stooped over forwards.

    Then, as others have said..
    Shirt collar, lose the button down, longer blades.
    Trousers too long - too many breaks on the way down the leg, should only be one small break at the ankle
    Tie colour is too weak for the ensemble.
    Jacket shoulders padded, but thats fairly normal with off the rack.

    So Change your shirt and tie, stand up straight (shoulders back) and at some stage have your trouser hems done.

    Not too bad for a beginner IMHO.

    Your outfit looks really good top to bottom, and not even a whiff of acridity! :embar:

    Your trousers are outstanding, they drape, and break, beautifully. :satisfied:

    and no, you don't look like a clown at all...

    Pretty damn impressive for a casual outfit if you ask me.

    Guys/thumbs uppers, these are not full trousers, they are Milano fit from Brooks Brothers, their slimmest trouser. That said, this jacket is too tight, for sure.

    It doesn't look that tight, just a little... I think it would look good with wider lapels and a lower button stance. Wish it was easier to find such things in OTR stuff...
