    Thanks for the comments. The tie is actually silk, from Turnbull & Asser

    It doesn't matter what knot you use, that tie is hideous............sorry to pile on. Think of the gift this way, if someone seriously bought you a pink bunny rabbit suit, would you actually wear it in public just to be nice?

    You are probably right, although I do try to challenge myself to find something other than white linen/cream silk and see if I can make it work.

    Thanks, Foxx!

    Pingson, Pliny - great jackets from both of you guys. FWIW, I don't think that SC needs any alterations whatsoever, Pingson.

    Shirt is pale blue. I don't want any of you white-shirt haters to get your knickers in a twist.

    top block, jacket/tie/shirt look great, not sure on PS. cant tell enough about bottom block to comment much, but i think with that fit a darker brown shoe is called for.

    SB, nice. would be better with white shirt.

    Those shoes are a bit clunky, and they could use some TLC. The color isn't quite right for the suit. You set an otherwise high standard with this rig, in terms of both style and quality. The shoes don't live up to it. Also, though your tie and square are both nice, I wish they had a color in common to tie them together.

    Parterre, that shirt is too formal to wear with anything less than a suit. I wouldn't really like it even then, but it wouldn't be so out of place. If you'd like to wear a tie, wear a coat, and be more afraid of stripes-on-stripes. Thin sweaters like that work better as layering pieces. Wear argyle socks, or even a colorful pair.

    Right now, it looks like you're trying very hard to dress elegantly. If you directed that effort into a slightly different direction, you could do very well. Figure out what an appropriate level of formality is, and dress for that.

    CottonDockers: Challenging oneself is well and good, but are you trying to dress well, or learn to be a better dresser? Athletes push themselves in training so that they don't have to push themselves as hard at the real thing, if you get what I'm putting out.

    You need longer collar points if you're going to have that much roll.

    Looks like you just moved the buttons up.

    Alright, I took a bunch of your advice yesterday and looked through a bunch of posts and decided to try something a little more traditional.
    Light blue shirt, navy blazer, wool blend tie, gray khaki's, and boots cause it was snowing in the morning!
    Watch is a Hamilton Khaki Automatic. Graduation gift from my folks.
