    I stand by my original comments about the suit as a whole. Also, I think darker shoes would look better. The yellow tie with the dark suit and light (white?) shirt doesn't look good.

    Agree with the shoes. Not a good combo.

    It looks good. I'd prefer a lower buttoning point, but that's just me. Not bad like this either. Rock on :slayer:

    I don't have a blanket objection to navy trousers as some do, but there is not enough contrast between the rich blue of the pants and the rich brown of the jacket. I would have less of a problem if the jacket was a gun club with a navy component but the two solids are visually jarring for me.

    Leaving aside the seasonality I think with this jacket, lighter pants, either light grey, winter white or even tan would be an improvement.

    Shoes are great as corrected. Otherwise a good effort.

    I realise it was about a week ago, but what a lovely suit. Who made it?

    Longer tie, belt, more cuff, and possible change of PS (the SC is very wrinkled--I know it's the unstructured look--and far too short in the body/button stance). Otherwise, nice. :)

    I think the suit looks absolutely fine. The button stance might be a tad high but whatevs. The real issue, for me, are the trousers. Man, that leg opening is tight (they don't even cover your shoes a CM! :(), and they're not hanging right from the knee down; they're too tight, IMO. The sleeve length is some kind of perfect. :)

    My eyes are not seeing what you're seeing. The shoulders look good, there is some shape thru the body but not overly aggressive, and the jacket covers his crotch and I would assume his arse. I don't see any pulling at the buttons, and from that semi-side shot it looks like he could even slim the sleeve around the bicep if he wanted. About the only thing I think could be considered "small" is the slim, tapered pants, and the minimal break. But that look is everywhere in Europe right now. What am I missing?

    Look at his highly unnatural stance. Anybody can fix themselves for the camera. I just don't buy it, and in general I think a bit more room would allow him to look at ease in his clothes rather than in a straight jacket. A man that looks uncomfortable in his clothes is not a well dressed man.

    Hey Uunottaja - do a fun pose next time, something more natural like eating cotton candy or jumping or thoughtfully admiring a Monet. :D

    It looks good and it suits you to a T. I don't like the yellow tie and the shoes but that is personal preference.

    Well, this is interesting to hear. Thanks for all the feedback. For me the suit is pretty much bang on for what I look in one, except for maybe slightly too much roping in the shoulders. I prefer this kind of a buttoning point and could do with a bit slimmer chest and as CousinDonuts said, sleeves. The pant length and width is also something that might not go as well in the US or the UK, so I understand the comments. As for the jacket, well, I could fit a small pillow in there and jump around without anything pulling. :)
