    It is a vintage suit after all and yes it does have flared trouser legs. I think it looks seriously cool, beautiful the way it sits on the shoe (and top of heel) with a single front break. Perfection!!

    I also think however, as a couple, I would have picked up a couple of colours in the ladies frock for shirt / tie / and (missing) PS. To me the blue of the shirt is very powerful. Ideal, IMO, cream / white / ecru shirt with madder dark brown orange... tie (with a dimple)

    You looking very good for first day of 'school' Mister. Cinch that tie knot the extra half inch into your collar and you are good to go. [​IMG] Nice one Mister!!


    Addendum: I know the suit is modern and the trousers are low cut, and the jacket probably doesn't cover his crotch or ass. No nitpick!!

    Lovely outfit Malford, it is conservative in colour, but lots of texture and I like it a lot. Well done Mister. [​IMG]

    Please don't mind the rolled up pant hems, I've undone them - I was feeling I had too much break for these slim pants, but after seeing the pics I think I prefer the break...

    Even with the patch pockets still kinda looks like you grabbed the wrong pants with your suit jacket. This effect is a little exacerbated by everything else looking like it belongs with a suit (shirt, tie, etc). I wonder if navy cords or something similar would soften this. Actually, I'm having a hard time imagining that too...

    This is a question rather than a critique... what do you think about the break of trousers when you have a cuff? I've always thought (and I may be wrong) that when trousers are cuffed to go for the minimum break possible, whereas if they are uncuffed you would go for an inch or a 2-inch break (depending on preference).

    I would normally agree, but there is a very strong and long-standing tradition of suit trousers like this - look at Astaire's trousers for a start - and it works in this context. I am short and fairly slim and I tend to taper my trousers, but I don't think it is a 'rule'.

    ^ Trousers are around 1/2" too long. Definitely need taking up and maybe a little tapering.

    The whole outfit is a bit "meh". Difficult to match up a jacket this dark.

    The length is probably perfect in movement, isn't it, Malford?

    Pretty much. Little bit full for my liking.
