    No link. He stated that he had some jackets made without breast pockets. People can say what they want about LK - that's novelty to me.

    Long time, no see! The previous suggestions are basically on point, but it should also be noted that this is one of your best posts.
    In general, I don't understand why so many here want to pair coarse, chino-type trousers with jeans-type hems with worsted jackets. It never looks good.
    Needs more penor? :confused: (I was going to take the high road, but I couldn't resist. Sorry.)

    It's actually a cotton jacket.

    If pen0r was to fill up the space left by phatness I would need no tripod for my camera. Let's leave it at that. [​IMG]

    strongly structured shoulder accentuates your taller neck and small head. i think a much softer shoulder would be more flattering. and a thinner notch instead of the wide dramatic peak lapels also do you no good

    TKE is way too young/young looking to wear that Gordon Gekko (or Marty Kaan for the contemporary) getup. Looks ridiculous.

    Agreed. Seems like the wrong style suit for someone short and slender.

    Solid shirt would have been better. Tie still looks a bit too red.

    May be a biased response simply because I can't think of many times I've ever liked wide stripes.

    Dumb question and I know there's another sextion for it but the question arose from my morning post. Can I wear navy ties (not solid) with navy suits? That's my look thus far or shud I return all my navy ties? They all blend in fine into the navy suits.

    Yes, you can, but solid is too boring.

    A better idea would be to buy a charcoal suit.

    So are you doing something like a repp tie?

    I mean, it can be done. I don't like looking too monochrome and would prefer other ties but it's not like you're doing anything wrong here.

    If you work in conservative office (I think you do) you can at least go with a white shirt so you're not doing a blue shirt and tie under a navy suit.

    Don,

    Shoes seem a bit too matchy matchy with the jacket for my taste, but I like everything else. Well done!

    Again, I think this would look better with grey trousers. Also the shirt would look better if it was a paler blue. I don't like the square at all. I think the tie would look better if it was a more maroon and less red.

    Agree with most of this, especially the part about the tie needing to be a deeper shade.

    I like the watch a lot.

    Color of the tie is in real darker and less bright than on the fotos.

    Well, okay. Substitute "refined" for "worsted" and let's go from there. :)
    Is this a grenadine jacket?
