    Thanks for what compliment is in there, and congratulations - that's an admirable number of mistakes to cram into such a short post.

    I meant everything but the bit about the shoes as a compliment.

    My comment was largely opinion except for the observation that you are young and that your profile says Louisville. Don't know what I'm mistaken about or how it should have any bearing on what I thought was positive feedback.

    This is my second post in this thread but first of all I want to thank all those who commented on my first post (patterned trousers and short-sleeved white shirt) with many constructive suggestions. I thought of answering all the questions and thanking everyone but this thread moved so quickly that I didn't want to bring my old post up. Will try to keep up with the comments on this fit if there is any.

    In any case, this is what I wore today for a job interview. Sorry for the LQ pictures as well as the angle taken with my iPhone.

    Thanks, fellas -- and also to those who responded in the Thumbs Up window. I like your suggestions, and I also think I could convert this into a really nice dressy-casual outfit by swapping out the shoes and losing the tie.

    First, I hope your interview went well.

    Second, the suit seems quite nice.

    Third, that tie knot seems a bit big for the collar.

    Fourth, I hope you land that job.

    Bought these pants a month ago and they are too big at the waist and hips already. I love losing weight, but my wallet hates it.
    The jacket needs heavy slimming as well...

    Jacket, shirt, trousers = Emidio Tucci
    Tie = Drake's
    PS = Cappelli
    Shoes = Magnanni
    Belt = Miguel Bellido


    (btw, not looking for fit feedback, just sharing the outfit and pointing that out because trousers look baggy even with this pose)

    Today I actually have a reason to dress up, as I'm acting as a chairman for a public thesis defense. So I'm going full-in with a three-piece suit and my favourite Marinella tie.

    I like everything and I am going to be picky on one thing because clearly the basics are no problem. You seem to have managed to mangle your Marinella. It's good to have a dimple, but you've got a full-blown chasm, and is that a double FiH? The knot looks overly long and rectangular at least from this angle.

    Aaaannnnd this morning... had to resort to bathroom pics until I figure out a spot in the office. I'm up too early before the sun and I get home when it's already dark so no bueno with pics at home.
