    Jesus, that's a comeback! if the lapels were narrower and the shirt sleeve\\jacket sleeve ratio was sorted out, that would be like a 20x improvement on your first pics.

    Good work, the 2button suits you so much better.

    their's also something not entirely right about the shirt collar, can't put my finger on it.

    Everything is fantastic here except the tie, which seems a bit too shiney for the tweed. And you need to button that collar.
    Thanks. Agree on both counts. Received the tie this morning in the mail and decided to go with it. It needed a press and didn't quite work with the outfit. So it goes. The collar was buttoned immediately after the photo but I didn't take another pic.

    Could be a major contender, but hard to assess without the outfit on.

    Leather looks super corrected grain

    One of few jackets that ever show up on this site that doesn't look too tight. So much better than looking like a sausage.

    That is some next level pattern matching right there! The entire length of your arm blends seamlessly into your torso!

    They do. But I actually think that works fine for that unconventional colour, and with that particular style and outfit. I like the overall outfit quite a bit. I saw some D&G shoes in a similar style, but in an olive-golden colour and they also worked fine in corrected grain. They're not shoes you'll keep long or wear often, so CG is fine for those purposes.
    Afternoon/Evening Gents - Holdfast is my current favourite, Love that whistle...
    Thanks; it's a pretty strong pattern esp. for RTW. Really nice construction too; fully canvassed, soft tailoring (almost no shoulder padding) and a lovely soft fabric. I like the concept of your outfit... but think notch lapels on that jacket would have worked better with the 3 patch configuration. Lovely shade of green though.

    Holdfast, I really like that suit. I keep coming back to look at it. I have to say I don't love the tie - maybe I am spending too much time over on Manton's CBD thread.
    Yeah, as I said in the post, it wouldn't have been my first choice normally. Though I now realise I could have used dark green tie of some sort and still have worked the challenge theme fine, as well as it still being a bold enough colour choice to co-ordinate with the boldness of the suit.
    That's a sweet suit. I don't know if I'd have the guts to wear it, but it looks great on you.
    I suspect I will wear it as separates as equally often as I do a full suit. It's quite strong when done as a full suit. Thanks to everyone else who posted nice stuff about the suit, too.

    Consistently good.

    Sweet fit on that jacket, dude.

    1st post in the thunderdome.. Was aiming for the 5 Colour Friday challenge, but unless you count my soles as a desaturated red I'm one short.. Pants and tie are purple, but its doesn't read that well in the photos.. Jacket tightness becomes a bit confronting when you see it in a photos also, hmm... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    looks nice. the idea is to take pics of the clothes on you. dont be afraid all the mean things people will say can hurt you


    My first post on WAYWRN.
    Here's my "young & fresh" twist on CinqueColori for FRIDAY challenge.

    The biggest problem I ran into, was taking pictures...
    I couldn't took a picture of myself with right angle, to show the colours and fit properly.
    Forgive me, but after countless tries, I gave up and decided to just display the items

    1. Navy suit
    2. Lavender shirt, with contrast white collar
    3. Brown Tie
    4. Orange/Yellow/Green (count 1) Pocket square
    5. Burgundy oxfords

    Bonus points: no black, no white, no grey! [​IMG]

    Thank you for all the comments.
    Yeah, I Couldn't manage to take proper pictures myself.
    Had to ask for help.
    Here is the rest.

    Full body shot, and closer.

    Much better indeed! And I actually quite like the wide lapels as an ever so subtle bird-flip.

    But also: you look much better for not having your hair hanging down your face. This makes your entire appearance more balanced and more mature.

    One thing: you may want to try out a slightly higher, more spread collar to draw attention away from your relatively long neck.
