    Nice Navy isn't a fail IMO. A lot of people just don't know how to peer it.

    Beat, looks nice. I would personally get a slightly longer jacket, drop the pockets slightly and lose the ticket pocket. Also, the trousers seem a bit skimpy. Also, are you slightly bow-legged? Perhaps talk to your tailor about taking in the crotch inseam to swing the pattern to make the legs fall straighter and less like: (( )) I have the opposite problem of being knocked kneed from my fat days. Also, to really nitpick just slightly reduce the trouser length.

    Stylistically, I don't care for the contrast collar shirt.

    I agree. I'm not sure I know how to "peer" (?) it, but I definitely don't immediately discount it's potential.

    Jacket shape's terrific Beatlegeuse. r u broad shouldered? if anything go one wider. maybe. sleeve pitch may need slight adjust there's very slight rippling. My personal pref would be for wider pants, no cuffs, but TEHO.

    what's the weight and color of the cloth?

    FTFY, I belive that is what he meant.

    I personally don't have any navy wool trousers, but I love my navy chinos and linen pants. Pair them with a brown or green SC or sweater, or nothing more than a shirt.

    I think the angle of the pic is a little low, so it's making the jacket look shorter. It covers my butt, and I actually had the front of the jacket cut longer than the back to fix a balance issue. I'm definitely bow legged, and that's a problem I've always had with suit pants. I'll talk to my tailor and see what they can do about it. Like Caustic Man just posted, this isn't a contrast collar shirt, it's just a standard light blue.


    I have pretty medium shoulders, not too broad, not too narrow. I can try experimenting with some slightly wider shoulders next time. The cloth is a pretty standard medium grey twill, Gladson fabric. It's a four season fabric, right around 10oz.

    So he advice last time was to try a darker tie and lighter trousers. I half got it, hopefully the medium grey trousers are a balance. Need to get a new pair of tan slacks

    I have a giant head. Crown to jaw, it accounts for 15.4% of my height. I'm 6.5 heads tall while the average person is 7.5. (Edit: Just spent a while reading about ideal head-to-body ratios in art. It depressed me)

    However, the argument might be made that a lower buttoning point might offset a larger head by showing more shirt and tie...

    I prefer blue and grey tones simply because they go well against my skin tone

    Thanks! I had the option of standard vs wide lapels, and I'm glad I went with the wider option. They're about 4.25", and I was worried they might look too wide, but I was very happy with the way they balance out on the suit.
