    Saturday was the annual ceremony where honorary doctorates are awarded and new professors are installed at the university where I work. So public lectures in the morning and then ceremony and white tie party in the evening. So no, not typical weekend wear :D

    You would benefit from wearing more vivid colors, Kai. Also, it looks as if that jacket has hefty shoulder pads that you don't need. Finally, either hem the pants for hike them up a bit. All that pooling around your ankles makes you look dumpy.

    Sorry for the blurriness in the main pic, but my best effort today at "full body compliance". Knitted tie, four-in-hand for literally the second time in my life. You guys are getting to me.

    javknot, there are several things I dislike and thus would change about your outfit.

    1) Your tie is too close in color to the cardigan and looks very sloppy, no idea if it is of poor quality or was tied and/or stored wrongly.
    2) Personally I dislike tie bars, I think there are many SFers who agree, I would drop it unless you really like it.
    3) You are a very slim guy and I think guys your frame can profit greatly from a jacket worn as an additional layer ontop of a cardigan/sweater.
    It would too help balance the grade of formality of the whole outfit. Spread collar, tie, and oxford shoes worn without a jacket just looks off to my eyes.
    4) Might be caused by your unusual pose but the way your pants fall, too is not very flattering
    The right pockets seems to flare open which, as I have learned, might be caused by a pant which is too small in waist and/or rise for yourself.
    Also a pleated pant should not be punching all the way down your leg.
    Others have a better eye to give you advise on whether the sizing or the cut is off for yourself.

    Don't mean to insight an argument about a silly tie, just need to set this man straight....

    That is a genuine PRL tie. I hate to admit this, but BP on eBay is good on his word of genuine RL.

    Secondly, which I don't hate to admit, the Teddy Bear is a PRL icon. It was more prominent pre-2000, I bet Ezra Wine (PRL/RL collector) has probably witnessed more than I have.

    Anyone with decent understanding of the history of the brand would know they had bears on shirts, sweaters, bed sets, jackets, ties, polos, etc...

    Hell, right now on the (official) Vintage (Japan) site they are selling a Teddy Bear wearing 'RRL' jeans...

    So, yes its genuine, and yes its a tad silly, but nothing wrong with a little silliness now and then.
