    Could sort out the fold on the cuffs? How long are your trousers? They look like they need to be hemmed 2"? I'm just a neat freak, though! [​IMG] Nice, linen pocket square would look nice, since there's no tie. Belt wouldn't hurt, either.

    Cheers Nick

    Quick, from here, before they run out (I just bought one, myself)! http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=247139 Like I said (I ninja-edited), you could hem the trousers ~2", so they have a medium to small break, and then fold them up (if that's even necessary? Not with those shoes, imo)! Your jacket fits nice, btw! (And hat! ;p)

    Thanks. Yeah the trousers, definitely need to be shortened, I took them to the tailors a few months ago and just left them rolled up, so they didnt touch that bit or shorten them, Yeah i kinda want another pair of smarter chinos like that as these are a bit casual and before I left the door I changed them for a pair of a deck shoes anyway haha.

    Oh Christ the hat, haha, just noticed it in the photo, took the picture in my mums room as it has better light in the afternoon. so must be hers... I'm 16 btw, just in case you're wondering why i'm living with my mum

    Acecow, I think you have many really interesting looks. In general, as has been noted, I think many of your pants are much too tight. These included. I don't think the ability to see (or not see) mantoe is the sole criteria either.

    But, but, but... 'Tis my style. [​IMG]

    I can't believe all of the craziness one pair of plaid pants has caused. They are not even that loud, people.

    I like 'em.

    Mike


    I must say, I liked those a lot also, would totally see myself wearing those.. Where did you get those Spoo?

    Feels like I'm becoming you guys with the near-daily fits.
    [​IMG][​IMG]


    This looks really good aeglus, you've been posting some really fine fits these past couple of weeks..

    I like your attitude Dig. And the fact that you have listed to good feedback and applied it shows you are serious about it. Keep it up and I look forward to more progress next week.

    Agree. Great seeing progression from teh earth tones..

    Thanks IST, IIRC, the shirt is RRL from about 2 or 3 years ago.

    I didn't mean to take so long to respond but I was on the way out the door to work when I saw this and didn't have time to answer properly.

    Last part first. We own 3 cameras. One is missing the charger. The second is missing but we have the charger. The third? Both the camera and charger are currently AWOL. Obviously, my Droid camera phone is sorely lacking the capability to meet my SF needs. I believe I'll refrain from posting any more fuzzy fit pics until I can do them justice. It's not fair to ask you guys for help if you can barely make out the details. The exception will be if I can get access to the card (no idea where it is) that holds our Italian vacation pics from a week ago.

    Back to the first part.

    I'm having a blast. The combination of improving my personal style while enjoying the thrill of a treasure hunt as I thrift these clothes that I find amazing is a double dose of fun. I came here looking for feedback. It would be very poor manners for me to ask for help and then toss it off, especially when there are so many talented people here who are taking the time to help. It stings a bit to learn that some of the best clothing I have ever worn is not the appropriate color for my complexion but I take comfort in the fact that I haven't spent much money (probably less than $300 to own thousands of dollars worth) on my missteps.

    Everyone has been very patient with me and I know that I'm far from finished. Watch this space!

    ...This looks nice. I'll join the chorus in saying you've greatly improved.
    Thanks. I'm peddling as fast as I can! You guys have been a great inspiration. BTW: I have thus far refrained from offering my opinion on fits as I quickly realized how little I knew. Maybe in a few more months...

    TBH, olive looks bad in 99% of applications. I actually can't think of any outfits that stand out that feature olive prominently. It's just a very dated and ugly color. [​IMG]

    I know, I need a better camera, better lighting, and a longer mirror. And in my haste I messed up the tie knot.
    [​IMG]

    That pocket square is, um, exuberant, even for these here parts. Maybe stuff a bit more of it into the pocket?
    [​IMG]
    The coat looks like an orphan suit coat rather than a sport coat. Also, the pants look (in this picture) like they're so overly large that they're gathering when you cinch your belt. The corduroy also seems like a mismatch with the coat fabric.
    [​IMG][/spoiler]
    This photo doesn't help us evaluate the fit.
    [​IMG]
    Blue moccasins or red socks. Sometimes. Both? Never. Those shoes, should you choose to wear them with this sort of fit, pretty much demand that you go sockless.
