    Thanks guys..I find myself being more of a simpler dresser.. I dont have any loud pattern shirts and very few loud pattern ties in my wardrobe..no crazy striped suits and very busy plaid patterns either..with my size I like the simplicity and cut to do the talking..but then I see some guys on here like Spoo, Tirallieur, Holdfast, Crusty among some others that master it well.. and then I re-assess.. at the end of the day I always tend to navigate back to the simpler things..can't help it.. thanks for the thumbs up guys! Totally appreciate it!

    This has been quoted and re-posted already multiple times, but it needs to be seen again.

    This is masterclass.

    Nothing too special here. Just my "Blue Monday" fit.

    Suit: Hugo Boss Black
    Shirt: Daffy's refugee
    Tie: Tom Ford
    Shoes: Saks 5th Ave. brand. (Supposedly made in Italy) They really are polished although it doesn't look like it in the picture.

    I agree with the previous response regarding the pocket "flaps". I also think that a darker and/or dressier pant would have improved the overall look of this fit.

    Either you're wearing a very small pork-pie hat in that first shot, or you've recently been sanctified.

    Loe the tie. PS a bit matchy, but still works.

    I felt the exact same way when I saw this fit. No tie, and those burgundy pants worn last week would look awesome...IMO.

    Thanks- its the only cashmere jacket I have and I gotta say it has a really soft casual feel to it even tho visually it seems to pair best with more formal white shirts, dark ties, linen PSs.

    ^^^^^ Pocketsquareguy fantastic

    DerekS dont think its boring- really nice

    Pingson- consistently great fits, another one today

    I've seen a few of the fits you've posted, I honestly think you would benefit from wearing clothing that is more suited to your body type. Most of your jackets show that straining in the waist (in this one it's also affecting the pockets) and your trousers also give you a very blocky look.

    I'm not bashing your body type; Ethan from The Armoury has a similar body type to you and looks great, whereas with your outfit it looks like you've taken a taller, slimmer man's silhouette and just made it wider, losing some of the sense of proportionality. Maybe it's the photos but you look awkward, as if you're trying to get away with something that you know you shouldn't. I'm not sure how to express it, but I think some rounding out of your features would help to minimise the boxy look. More natural shoulders and tapering in the trousers to help eliminate that break would go a long way towards minimising the boxiness of your frame.

    Very nice fit! Only thing I'd change would be cuffs on the pants (especially linen falls better), but very tastefully combined. Nice PS, too ;).

    Here in Berlin it's 30°, so naturally, time to break out the DB.

    It's Tuesday, it is predicted to rain in NYC later today, and this is hardly one of my best ensembles. Do forgive me.

    Shirt - LE
    Trousers - JAB

    This is from last week, but I don't think I posted it. Been on vacation.
