    I like the fit, I love the pants, but I don't care for the cuff here. Not because it's cuffed, but because the hem line at the end of the fabric is visible (if that's the right term). It just looks strange. I like that the fabric is lighter on the cuff too, similar to denim.

    I'm gonna have to disagree with the others: this looks downright terrible. The jacket and the jeans look like relics from the 90s, the madras vest doesn't work at all in this context, and I can't get behind that kind of seersucker-esque (crepe?) shirting. The jeans actually look so dated that they almost look edgy. I can see them working with some cool tee and a pair of nice sneakers, but not in this context.

    I don't understand what is acute about AAS's style. Or is it supposed to be ironic?

    A coworker of mine always carries a 500€ note taped to his belt since we've been held for ransom by french highwaymen aka la gendarmerie for not coming to a halt at a stop sign for the mandated three full seconds, once in Lyon. they threw us in a bus and drove us to the next ATM were we proceeded to pay the 'fine' in cash without getting a reçu...

    I find this hilarious. Wearing a belt. Preposterous.

    I am more of a 'money-clip & suit-jacket-pockets-still-sewn-shut'-kind of guy. I rarely ever carry more than 50€, though...

    I would like to see him get proper button connectors for the suspenders. Sew them in if they do not come with them already. Glad there is not a belt in the mix.

    4th day of the 10 days nightshift. Today only fotos with artificial light. To make fotos before the work it was too hot.
    Edit: Changed the first foto. The old one was out of focus, so I do this one after the work under day light.

    Probably the second best outfit you have ever posted. The jacket is almost perfect on you. You are a big guy and should not be afraid of bigger lapels and ideally more natural shoulders. The buttoning point/pockets are a bit off on the jacket but I assume you son't get this stuff made for you. The pants can be taken in an inch from the thigh to the knee and 1/2 inch from knee to leg opening, they will still be comfortable and not slim and they will improve your overall silhouette. This will also help your feet look a bit more inline with your size, since you like round toe shoes. Right now your pants are swallowing the shoes and you look like you have tiny feet. You are one of the few guys on here that should be wearing those really elongated shoes and they won't look like clown shoes on you.

    SB: The black silk tie and the black shoes work extremely well in my book - good show!

    I thought the jacket looked rather tight, pulling at the buttons. But Ed knows far more than I do.

    Either way, I'd put you up for 'most improvement in such little time' award if there ever was one.
