    Pants too long.
    Got it, thanks.
    Sounds like you bought some nice stuff. I think most people on here got positive comments on their outfits from their friends before ever coming here. Lurking teaches you to a certain amount, but posting your outfits is where the rubber hits the road... look forward to some pics.

    QFMFT. I'll spend a day feeling pimp and then poke my nose in here or share a pic and that'll bring me right back down to Earth. [​IMG] Criticism is good for you!

    "You did not offended me, why should i be offended about someone who can barely dress, and doesn't understand that there are more styles then just to mutch fabrics on -suits-style. I'm glad that alot of people doesn't dress like that (google is your friend for that), and understand that shape in clothing items are important. An recommendation for the next time, dont speak for others, you are only representing yourself."

    You're pretty hostile, which is funny given that Holdfast's comment was rather innocent. Just cool down a little bit and continue posting.

    Thank you! Of course you are right. This may sound like a lame excuse, but I thought the exact way as you did about the shoes when I dressed yesterday, but then I realized I had'nt worn black oxfords with anything but flannel slacks or full on suits for like... ever. I guess I just wanted to try out how it played in a really casual combo. [​IMG]

    definitely nothing wrong with them.

    Do not be afraid of pocket squares, they are your friend.
    In this instance I tend to disagree. I think that the addition of a pocket square is the last thing needed. He needs to concentrate on getting basic fit and co-ordination right before adding further embellishments, otherwise he risks looking more like a caricature.

    Harsh and unnecessary.

    i am a noob to the fashions but here is my try. i put on my flame retardant suit so fire away.

    i thought this went well all together even though it doesn't sound like it would work.

    shirt is orange checker banana republic slim fit
    jacket is grey wool "parallax" from france (??? found it in a thrift store)
    pants are kenith cole light brown
    tie is haines & bonner
    ps - ?? light blue
    shoes - some jobber shoes
    phone - metro pcs

    Overall it's a nice first post. I agree with having the buttons switched out to avoid the thrifted look. Work from there. Your tie knot would not get any praise on SF; you gotta get a dimple going on. A more spread shirt collar would also be favourable, as the edge of your shirt collar is supposed to hide under your suit collar.

    that is one of, if not your best fitting suit - by far. fuller cut suits can still fit right, and this does.

    nice.

    why.

    i'm so to say an ambassador for black shoes. also, it's not a flaw to have black laces in a burgundy shoe. today, it's hard to find good laces in the right tone. btw, i like them a lot.

    Oh, I just presumed it was a venomous way to say that the shoes were fine but everything else sucked. You never know around here.

    Edit: Thank you, I also love black shoes, but as I said, am not totally confident when wearing them with non formal outfits.

    I realised very quickly that it's neither possible nor proper to try and educate grown men on social etiquette via teh internets.
