    Kill the pant roll, dude. It's just bad. Shirt looks a little jacked, but I bet if you stopped jumping around like a ten year old girl at a Justin Bieber concert it would look fine.

    ... pincord suit...
    I like the suit quite a lot. It feels like it needs white bucks or something like that for the shoes, and a simpler tie, but your selection is OK too.
    Just a blah, BB day.
    You say that, but I think this is actually pretty good. Nice, vaguely retro, tie.

    Nicely put together; good colours especially.
    [​IMG][/SPOILER]
    Co-ordinating tie to wall is next level. [​IMG] Looks good, too.

    Very sharp; I like. I was going to say more formal than usual for you, then I saw the socks.

    Welcome! Pretty damn good, except I'd like the tie to be a shade or two lighter in colour.
    Tradly
    Yes, but good trad, as far as my eye for that niche goes.

    Top half is really great. Would khaki-coloured or even cream trousers have worked better, maybe? Not sure. Continuing a few outdoor shots while the weather holds up. Had a lunchtime appointment and then went for a walk in the afternoon around a pretty abbey and its grounds, so nabbed a quick snap...

    My first post in here so go easy:

    The jacket is a Wool / Silk blend, hence the wrinkles. The picture also makes them look a lot worse.

    The heat is already brutal. 85 degrees at 8 a.m. and near 100% humidity.

    Props for suiting up in that weather, Mike.
    Love the shirt collar. Borrelli?

    This is nice.

    Mike


    Thank you, sir.

    The tie is definitely a bit bold in color.

    I have worn offwhite with this and it looks good. I chose these pants for comfort. They are a very light silk and linen blend. Also, I am not afraid of blue pants. [​IMG]

    It is an Alea shirt, actually.

    Thanks, Parker.

    This is nice. Is the tie Panta or Ghen? Either way - I really dig it.
    I am familiar with the "one thing to mess it up" theory, but I don't subscribe. I think solid socks would've worked better.

    Tradly. Coat is a tad shorter than I'd like...

    Looks fine to me - I think you can afford to go this length to help out proportions. It makes you look taller.

    The heat is already brutal. 85 degrees at 8 a.m. and near 100% humidity as warm Gulf air trains through Louisiana to feed Midwest thunderstorms. It is going to be another bad day in the Heartland. I don't know how much longer I can take outside pics in this heat.

    Have a good one!

    +1

    I was just multiquoting to compliment the collar. I really like the jacket too.

    You seem to have two fits - drapey HF and slim HF. This appears to be the latter, and personally I like it better on you.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^ And you went with the bathroom pic......................^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Natürlich!!!

    two nice fits, both let down by the choice of footwear.

    Spoozy - because of the laces/lacing, i'd go more casual with this (no tie, less structured jacket)
    Mike - the black (?) soles of those shoes makes it hard to pull off in a formal type fit. Different jacket (something cotton/linen), no tie, same pants would set it off right.

    this is very nice HF. I like the choice in pants. Picks off the check really well.

    Thanks, Greg.

    The shoes have a brown sole. I don't know how formal this fit is. At least, I wasn't going for something too formal. BD shirt, linen pants, triple patch pocket jacket that is extremely lightweight cashmere. The shoes I tried, and liked, so left on. They are tan suede longwings.
