    Hahaha, well I started with the 4 tips but it kept falling down so I changed it to this.

    Thank you for the feedback. That's why I joined the forum. I'm still at the basics of mixing colors and definitely have a hard time imagining some green or blue in this attire. Could you please give me an example of what you would change please?

    ^Whenever I see your handle I can't help but think that you are some kind of vacuum cleaner one might keep on their boat.

    This is a hard thing to get the hang of. If you do not have an eye for pairing colors then really all you can do is study combinations you like and hone your eye from there. It complicates things to not know the true colors at play. It's very hard to get a color to come out on a monitor as it does IRL. So advice on the internet will rarely be correct or as good as it could be.

    Basic rules are that richer, darker colors compliment one another. When you are dealing with a wine color (as you seem to be doing here) you want to focus on colors and textures that compliment one another. Think bottle greens, dusty blues, textured navies, deeper mauve, etc. Colors should never directly match. Instead a shirt, PS and tie should all play off one another in an effort to tie a look together.

    Excellent


    Jacket is way too short


    Do you ever swing and miss? Not that I've seen . . . .


    Unbalanced



    Too baggy . . . . I get you are a short, stocky guy but those pants are like sails


    Classic



    Adjust the jacket to the correct length as well
