    I appreciate the comments and am aware that these are too wide and too short, but it was my first suit and I love it. I have a problem with wanting my pants perfect because I'm short.

    Here is the latest pant I've had made, any thoughts or comments?:

    I, personally, think it's a bit short, but then some folks like it short, so it's very hard to say for certain.

    southernstyle, if you're going to wear 'em that short, then they should be narrower.

    Yep, high-water pants should have a leg opening of around 7.5"-7.75". They'll billow awkwardly when you're walking otherwise.

    So, this is my first brown suit, and I'm wondering whether this combination works. Should I have gone with a navy tie perhaps?

    I don't think that works for you, monkey. I wouldn't have gone with a brown pinstripe. That's tough to pull off, and that tie is not helping you. Solid brown suits are awesome though. Don't care for the shirt. Don't like patterns on the suit and shirt if you are only doing two.

    Yeah, I thought so. It's hard to find a tie that looks good with this. What do you suggest? Btw, the colors in the first picture are really off. I added a second one to show the true colors. It's a lot darker brown, more of a chocolate. It sort of looks like charcoal from a distance.

    I like the suit, MonkeyFace. Is it from SS?

    Your pants need to be slimed out.

    Thanks, CP!

    Monkeyface, the navy tie looks better, and I don't have a problem with the check shirt. I think it would also look good with a solid blue shirt and a chalky, navy neat.

    Brown suits and off white/ecru/cream shirts are great friends.

    nice suit MF. IMO the brown and caramel's too much cos brown's such a dominant color it's going to need something pretty strong to balance it.

    Have u got a navy neat tho rather than a solid for this? and then go solid with shirt and (linen) square. the ecru or cream comment's spot on.
    (edit: jus noticed SB made the same suggestion) you know, have u gotta pink bengal stripe? could go jacket and shirt stripe, tie and square solids, very nice

    already posted pics of mine, not sure they work but they give u a sense of blue pairings:
