    I'm not even going to spoiler these pictures because no-one should have to see them. The tie could be okay in the context of an otherwise very conservative suit. But with green pants and a cardigan, it's just ridiculous. The shirt doesn't fit with anything else. The shoes are too formal for the rest of the outfit. Basically, I'm really sorry not to be able to be more positive, but as an outfit, this is messy and incoherent.

    :laugh:

    through some crafty maneuvering i was able to deceive the eye, and create the illusion of some sveltitude. i hope i can replicate it.

    which pose was more svelte would you say?

    Agreed. I have done the same thing with my own.

    I'm just a bit surprised, given his previously stated position on sunglasses. If he posts beach vacation pics this year wearing Sweet Classics instead of shell heads...

    Alright, well, I'm one of the few people that likes shirt and tie without a jacket, so I won't give you flak about that, though others probably will. If you are going with that look, you need to make sure you have a fitted shirt (the shirt seems to be billowing a bit at the belt line). The tie needs to go perfectly with the shirt, as you won't have a jacket to pull attention away from it. In this case, your tie is lighter than your shirt, something which is generally a pretty big faux pas. Your pants also need to be very nice (again, no jacket to distract); in this case, it seems like you are wearing old pleated khakis. And your belt looks like it has seen better days.

    Black shirts are fine at night, but will rarely look good with a tie.

    Avoid pleats (unless you need the extra room)

    Lurk around to get a better feel for tie-shirt combinations

    Dimple your tie.

    New pants, new belt

    Keep the Stitchy beard...we need more beards.

    Maximator, you may have stumbled upon the anti-SF-approved combo.

    Quote:How so? The color in the picture isn't really that great, but the pants are a light brown, which I think contrasts the darkness of the black shirt pretty nicely. Same thing for the big white and grey stripes on the tie. Being a large guy, I like dark outfits, they make a few extra pounds go away and gives you(at least where I work) an extra ounce(or two) of authority.
