    I made the above comment after viewing on my phone. Now looking on my computer, I see that this is an odd-jacket combo, not a suit. I'm not as enthusiastic about it, now. I'd like to see more contrast between the jacket and pants.

    I agree. That one is weird, but I love what you've done with it.

    Everyone is welcome in this thread, but if I can give you some advice, if you keep wanting wanting wanting then you are likely to get less and less and less feedback. Take the thumbs up section as your positive feedback and anything else on top of it is a bonus.

    Weird in the best possible way :)

    Dude, just have a good time and enjoy, there would be ones that love your outfit some other don't, you can't please everybody.

    @HenryCarter: I like the jacket a lot, the shirt not that much and the tie is amazing!

    @Roger: those shoes are fantastic!

    Got it. I think I have been obsessing because I am trying to improve myself. I figured the more I ask the more feedback I was gonna get. But I think if there is something really wrong, people will point it out and if it's cool then a comment or thumbs up.

    Great SC and shoes. Belvest gets less attention than Isaia, RLBL, and some other brands, but it's a very well made garment with a flattering fit.

    This is one of the coolest SCs I've ever seen. I absolutely love it. That being said, I don't care for the shirt here. The denim conflicts with the formality of the rest of it. Not really feeling the square either actually. Love the tie and SC though, and those trousers are a beautiful texture.

    RogerP, may I ask which Samuelsohn model the suit is? I've tried and really like the Gable (soft, natural shoulder, light canvassing), but I'm curious about the other models.

    Thanks gents. Crimson - I'm not really sure of the model, and it wouldn't really matter for reasons I'll explain. This is my oldest suit - and the first MTM I ever did. It was a very square cut from several years ago, and after weight loss of about 20 lb.it was a full size too big and fit me like a tent. It really wasn't getting worn, so I sent it to my tailor to be essentially remade. Jacket taken in and shortened, sleeves shortened, pants tapered, vest (not worn here) taken in, etc. So the result really isn't any particular Samuelsohn model any more.

    If you don't think this shirt fits here, I think maybe you think this just shouldn't be worn with a tie? Personally, I love this combo.

    I knew you'd be my man on this shirt! I always find it interesting the reactions this shirt gets when I wear it. Maybe everyone is too used to seeing me in OCBD's and cutaway collars I don't know. I love it though and I only wear it occasionally with a tie. I don't think it's that formal a fit really beyond the fact I'm wearing a tie. Knit ties, tweed odd coats and flannels are generally the opposite to me.

    It'll definitely look a lot better once it's been washed 100 times though, at the moment it's only at around 10 washes.

    I tried 2.25 and did not like for a suit. Maybe ok for more flannels with SC. Don't be too concerned on how they look in pics, that is what made me try it.

    My height is 193cm / 6'4"

    But that is just my opinion.
