    No, it's light blue.

    I'm surprised at how many people drive with their jackets on...

    Yeah, whatever. I'm not doing any bikini modelling lately, that's for sure, but the pic does make me look even odder than usual. Anyway, this jacket just isn't right, though. Had it adjusted twice because it was too baggy in front and rumpled around the neck..now it's too tight across the back of the shoulders...might be time to write it off as a wrong'un, although I do like the cloth. Maybe one more go, with the new tailor...

    Anyway, to the point: is the light grey tie on pink shirt a bit too....80s?

    There's definitely something wrong with the jacket, and I can't quite say what it is. It looks boxy and frumpy in some dimensions, yet too tight in others. It would take a better-than-average alterations tailor to save the day.



    Light gray on pink is a terrific combo in any decade, but that particular tie just isn't doing anything for your look. Neither are the contrasting laces and loud socks. You might get away with one or the other, but not both at once. In your most recent pic you look like a reverse mullet: All business up on top; party on the bottom.

    Looks Like the shoulders are too small which is why it's pulling so much in the chest and overlapping so much below the buttoning point. the overlap is what makes you look pear shaped.

    Before you spend more on the shoulders, I really think it will be a very difficult job.

    Agreed on all counts. Length of jacket makes you look square.

    That tie is horrible.

    Mimo - that pose is not doing anything for the fit of your suits/sc. You're throwing your shoulders waaay back and the shoulder-width feet is good for golf, bad for online forum posting. Try to stand a little more naturally and things should go better.

    Second, in an attempt to channel vox with regards to the contrast lacing, you're trying to bring a "fun" element into an outfit that is, on its face, almost completely city formal. As such it is not "fun," but jarring and wrong-looking

    The tie is a bit more burgundy than the picture...the light was doing funny things with that tie. Worn with rough khaki chinos and brown loafers. And I'm aware the shirt's probably too formal for the cardigan...I just have way too many such shirts and not enough in oxford cloth (I like wearing dress shirts untucked with jeans fairly regularly)
